Everybody hanging on okay out there? 2020 is a never-ending bull ride
and it feels like we're all a millisecond away from losing grip and
getting trampled. Luckily there's a steady stream of awesome comics
coming out these days to distract, inspire, and immerse in. Since we're
halfway through this apocalypse of a year, I thought it'd be fun to
offer up my TOP 10 COMICS THUS FAR... maybe there'll be
something new in there for you to check out. Without further adieu,
here's the stuff I'm personally using to distract, inspire, and immerse
10. FIREPOWER (Image) by Robert Kirkman & Chris Samnee
9. WOLVERINE (Marvel) by Ben Percy & Adam Kubert
8. BILLIONAIRE ISLAND (Ahoy) by Mark Russell & Steve Pugh
7. STEALTH (Image) by Mike Costa & Nate Bellgarde
6. WONDER WOMAN: DEAD EARTH (DC) by Daniel Warren Johnson
5. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY by Al Ewing & Juan Cabal
4. SUICIDE SQUAD (DC) by Tom Taylor & Bruno Redondo
3. STRANGE ADVENTURES (DC) by Tom King, Mitch Gerads, & Evan Shaner
2. DAREDEVIL (Marvel) by Chip Zdarsky & Marco Checchetto
1. FAR SECTOR (DC) by NK Jemisin & Jamal Campbell
There are some obvious omissions in there... 'Something is Killing the
Children' narrowly missed entry, 'X-Men' hasn't come out in a long long
time, and 'Immortal Hulk' is segueing into its next story arc. All
excellent, but the above books are the ones I find myself diving into
first, and rereading.
REAL TALK: This week the unemployment supplement runs
out for folks grappling with financially surviving the pandemic. We
understand that this might limit your ability to pick up your comics.
What's very important, though, is talking to us about it. We're in a
similar boat-- we cannot afford to hang onto stuff indefinitely, and if
you communicate to us I'm sure we can work something out. If you ghost
us we have no choice but to shut the box down, and it won't be the kind
of thing where you can just pick it back up at your whim. Let's all try
to be as financially smart and respectful of others' situations as we
can through this, okay?
LAST CALL! Here are the debuting titles we think are
worth your time to consider adding to your sub list. Our orders lock on
Monday afternoon, so telling us if you'd like any prior to that is a
guarantee you'll get what you want. HERE is the whole list of all non-DC items we're locking in...
BATMAN: THREE JOKERS (DC
Black Label, Mini, $6.99, shipping 8/25/20) One of the most anticipated
comics of the decade is finally on schedule! There will be a bunch of
covers, and we're partnering with some fine shops to make sure we can
get as many of them for you as we can.
DEATH METAL GUIDEBOOK (DC,
One-shot, $5.99, shipping 8/18/20) If you've read some of Death Metal
but were left with a deep sense of "hhhhuuhhh?", this'll hopefully clear
that up. We're not going to order a ton over sub numbers, so tell us if
you want it!
VOYAGE TO THE STARS (IDW,
Mini, $3.99, shipping 8/19/20) Based on the hit podcast that I've never
heard of! There's great people involved so I'm sure it's a hoot.
LORDS OF EMPYRE: SWORDSMAN (Marvel, One-shot, $4.99, shipping 8/19/20) Empyre has been killing it so far, so I'm all in on this guy.
MAESTRO (Marvel, Mini,
$4.99, shipping 8/19/20) There's a big gap in the story between the Hulk
we know now and the Maestro he one day becomes. This mini is the
POWER RANGERS: DRAKKON NEW DAWN (Dynamite, Mini, $4.99, shipping 8/19/20) Looks like there's a lot of buildup to this that has MMPR fans buzzing.
SHADOW SERVICE (Vault, Mini, $3.99, shipping 8/19/20) A witch who's also a Private Investigator!
SHIPPING! Here's all the stuff we're getting for you this week! I went ahead and just merged DC into the whole flow. ADVENTURE ZONE GN VOL 03 PETALS TO METAL 19.99

eBay: velocitycomicsrva new listings weekly!
First off, I wanted to tell you about my pal Ryan Landau... he's doing
something pretty darn cool. If you head over to his instagram account
he's doing a weekly(ish) giveaway of a graphic novel or trade paperback
by black creators. It's super easy to enter, too-- you just have to like
the post and he randomly selects a winner! Then he mails you a
fantastic graphic novel and possibly exposes you to the work of a
creator you didn't know before! I don't see any negatives there at all.
Head to landau_pronounced_correctly on instagram and check it out!
Another pal, Brian Baines, is the creator of the red hot BUBBLES fanzine
about comics! All the cool kids devour this thing every time it comes
out, and this week's new issue has an interview with yours truly in it!
Mainly we're chatting about the effects of the COVID 19 pandemic on
comics retail (spoiler: not great!)... it was a good chat and I hope I
finally earned some cred with those cool kids.
LAST CALL! Wow, this is the smallest Last Call ever I
think? Not counting the weeks nothing was being ordered... but if you'd
like to peruse the whole (non-DC) list we're working on go HERE. Don't be shy, let us know what looks good to you by Monday 7/20 5pm to guarantee your copy!

eBay: velocitycomicsrva new listings weekly!
We're buying comics! Looking for silver/bronze Marvel/DC, quality Image/vertigo/Indy, and key issues! Reply for more details!
First off, it looks like whatever issues our new distributor for DC
Comics, UCS, had getting our product to us last week has been resolved.
I'll fully unclench when the stuff shows up on time, but as of right now
things are where they're supposed to be.
Secondly, a reminder: masks are a REQUIREMENT for entry into the shop.
No exceptions. Most folks coming in understand this and are happy to
help keep our space low-risk. At this point I don't know what else to
say to the few that want to fight it. Other than, "go somewhere else."
Thirdly, we've been buying some great collections of older comics
lately! If you've got some runs you're trying to complete, or want to
jump into grabbing some sweet first appearances, we can help. Just in
this week, first appearances of Electro, Mysterio and Mary Jane in early
Amazing Spider-Man issues! If you've got stuff you might be ready to
part with, shoot us an email or call-- if you've got Silver/Bronze Age
stuff, or first appearances, we're probably interested!
LAST CALL! These are the debuting titles we're
spotlighting for your perusal... our orders lock on them Monday, so let
us know before the end of the day then if you'd like to add any to your
sub lists! For the whole list of everything non-DC we're locking, take a
look HERE. And for DC stuff, let's try THIS. Some of this stuff, like the toys, orders have already locked on. But for single issue comics it's a pretty good guide.
ALIEN: ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY
(Dark Horse, Mini, $3.99, shipping 8/5/20) This'll be a must for all the
Alien fans out there. And all the variant covers will be by Walt
FIREPOWER (Image, Ongoing,
$3.99, shipping 8/5/20) Some of you might be thinking, "now wait a
minute, didn't this just come out? WHAT GIVES?" And yes-- the prequel GN
and FCBD issue have arrived and are awesome. This takes up from
there... I think there's some story overlap with the FCBD issue, but #2
drops the same week and I'd love to know how many to order for people
who want to continue.
EMPYRE HANDBOOK (Marvel,
One-shot, $4.99, shipping 8/5/20) I'm never sure how many of this kind
of thing to order. I love stuff like this, that lays out all the
characters and alien races and whatnot in a graphically pleasing format.
Tell me if you want one!
LORD OF EMPYRE: CELESTIAL MESSIAH
(Marvel, One-shot, $4.99, shipping 8/5/20) The son of Mantis and
Swordsman is all grown up and looks like he wants to stab someone!
BAD MOTHER (AWA, Mini,
$3.99, shipping 8/5/20) A bored soccer mom's daughter goes missing and
the quest to find her unleashes her inner badass. Plus, the tagline
"Baking Bad" is pretty funny.
SEVEN SECRETS (Boom!,
Ongoing, $3.99, shipping 8/5/20) This one's gonna be big. Tom Taylor
(DCeased, Suicide Squad, Wolverine) unleashes his first creator owned
comic in the world! An ancient order tasked with guarding a world
altering power is attacked! Their newest member goes on a quest for
truth, as you do when this kinda thing happens.
HORIZON ZERO (Titan, Mini, $3.99, shipping 8/5/20) Based on the game!
DEATH METAL: LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHTS
(DC, One-shot, $5.99, shipping 8/4/20) A bunch of short stories
featuring various Baddies and Beasties from the Death Metal mini!
DREAMING: WAKING HOURS (DC, Mini, $3.99, shipping 8/4/20) G Willow Wilson jumps into the Dreaming to write about nightmares!
