Newsletter 11/26/14

Hey everybody. Those who’ve become Matt Fraction fans through Sex Criminals or Hawkeye recently should check out his new creator-owned book, Ody-C (our deal of the week). I’m also excited for Capture Creatures based on the artwork I’ve seen online and people that know me could probably guess I’m putting time aside for the Planet of the Apes book this week as well. It could also get expensive as I’m eyeing the Hellboy, Punk Rock Jesus, Arkwright Integral, and Borgias hardcovers. Did I mention I’m in the market for a second bookshelf! If anyone’s selling hit me up!

Black Friday is looming. You want to get the hot deals, but you don’t want to be trampled alive. I get it. So come visit us where you can get the hot deals and only totally manageable amounts of people!

New Comics Highlights

 

ODY-C # 1 Deal of the Week $1.99
An epic 26 centuries in the making: In the aftermath of a galactic war a hundred years long, Odyssia the Clever Champion and her compatriots begin their longest, strangest trip yet: the one home. A gender-bent eye-popping psychedelic science fiction odyssey begins HERE, by MATT FRACTION (CASANOVA, SEX CRIMINALS, SATELLITE SAM) and CHRISTIAN WARD (INFINITE VACATION, OLYMPUS).


Capture Creatures # 1
Becky Dreistadt (ADVENTURE TIME 2014 ANNUAL) and Frank Gibson (THE AMAZING WORLD OF GUMBALL) are two of the most clever and visually arresting creators in the business, and this is one of their most ambitious projects ever. From the vivid visuals to the rad story and hilarious, heartwarming moments, you’ll love every second in this world. If you like titles like POKÉMON or DIGIMON, or just like cool things, this is definitely the comic for you. Over a hundred wonderful and terrifying creatures have suddenly appeared on earth. Two teens investigate the origins of these curious creatures and how they can stop those who are trying to destroy them.


Gotham by Midnight # 1

Strange doings are afoot in Gotham City! Look out, though – Jim Corrigan is on the case in this new series by writer Ray Fawkes (CONSTANTINE, BATMAN ETERNAL) and artist Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night, Ten Grand)!


Dawn of the Planet of the Apes # 1
Michael Moreci (CURSE, HOAX HUNTERS) and Dan McDaid (MIND THE GAP) bring the hard world of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes to life – dealing with both classic and modern POTA questions of what the true meaning of “society” is, and if being “civilized” is even possible in a world wracked with strife. Great for fans of end stories like 12 MONKEYS, THE ROAD, and CHILDREN OF MEN. Bridging the 10gap between the RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES and DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES films, fans will bear witness to the fall of humanity and the rise of Caesar’s civilization. While the apes of the world have yet to advance as a species, Caesar must find a way to unify them to one cause. On the other side of the country, Malcom must venture into the decaying Americas with his family to find a cure for the plague slowly killing his wife, Rita. World powers will shift as civilizations collapse and rise.


Memetic # 2

The apocalypse continues in the second installment of MEMETIC. In Day Two of this crisis, Aaron tries to escape his college campus overrun with Screamers, while Marcus and his Pentagon team attempt to track down the source of the meme and eliminate it before time runs out.


Rasputin # 2

With the ghost of his dead father for company, Rasputin leaves home for the monastery, where he fights monks, has a chat with God, and meets the man who will eventually murder him.
