Newsletter Week of 12/23/15

Hey guys. First I’d just like to say that even though there will have been a whole weekend between now and Wednesday, the holidays are a busy time and some of your fellow patrons may not have seen Star Wars yet so please be courteous about spoilers and such by the proverbial water cooler! Speaking of holidays, it’s a pretty light week for new books, but we’re still bringing the deals! Superzero #1 was supposed to be one of our DOW’s last week, but unfortunately they got lost in the mail (polite way of saying the distributor shorted us) but we will have them on the 23rd for the same discounted price. We’re also going to be doing a Batman sale: anyone who buys Dark Knight III Master Race #2, may buy Batman Europa #1 for $1.00! Please observe our holiday hours below and have a Merry Christmas!

Venus #1 Deal of the week $1.99!

(W) Holly Black (A) Lee Garbett (CA) Dave Johnson
The anti-hero who made his debut in THE SANDMAN and starred in his own hit series is back in a new series by best-selling writer Holly Black (The Spiderwick Chronicles) and artist Lee Garbett (Loki)! As this series begins, God is dead-and Gabriel has accused Lucifer of His murder. Lucifer had motive and opportunity, but claims he can prove his innocence. If Gabriel finds the killer and takes the culprit into custody, his sins will be forgotten, and he’ll be welcomed back to Silver City. So, despite the fact that Lucifer just opened a nightclub on Earth and is hiding a mysterious wound, the two brothers set off to solve their Father’s murder. Their investigation will span Heaven, Hell, Earth and beyond in this antagonistic buddy-cop noir with an angelic flair.

(W) Kate Leth (A/CA) Brittney Williams

PATSY WALKER has managed to escape her past, her enemies and Hell itself (literally), but nothing compares to job hunting in New York City! Between trying to make rent and dodging (literal) bullets, Patsy barely has time to deal with her mother’s exploitative romance comics about her childhood resurfacing, much less how they start to interfere with her work and dating life. As she goes from living a double life to a triple, what the Hell is Patsy Walker supposed to do? Raise your (literal) claws for PATSY WALKER, AKA HELLCAT!

Batman 66 Meets The Man From Uncle #1

(W) Jeff Parker (A) David Hahn (CA) Michael Allred
Two 1960s television icons cross paths for a groovy, globe-spanning adventure in this one-of-a-kind miniseries. The deadly organization known as T.H.R.U.S.H. has a new twist in their plans for world conquest-they’re recruiting some of Gotham City’s most infamous villains! Agents Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin bring this information to the one man who knows everything about these new enemies: Batman. Before you can say “Open channel D,” the Dynamic Duo and the Men from U.N.C.L.E. are jetting off to Europe to thwart the schemes of this deadly criminal cartel.

Dark Knight III Master Race #2
Deal of the week: Buy DK III Master Race #2 and get Batman Europa #1 for $1.00!

(W) Frank Miller, Brian Azzarello (A/CA) Andy Kubert, Klaus Janson
The unexpected finale to the Dark Knight saga continues as Carrie Kelly gets caught…that is, she finds herself…she gets into-well, you’re just going to have to read it yourself.

Last Gang in Town #1

(W) Simon Oliver (A) Rufus Dayglo (CA) Rob Davis
Forget what you know of England, of the “Land of Hope and Glory.” Instead, try damp and depressing, and embrace this miserable island for what it is. Our story kicks off in 1976: the country coming apart at its flared corduroy seams, a decade after the Great Train Robbery, when British crime has gone decidedly soft in the middle. Time for a new generation of criminals to rise: a band of snotty-nosed heroes driven by destiny and cheap cider, who will strike fear back into the establishment, put art back into crime and crime back into art, and pull off what will become known as the heist of the century. This new series from Simon Oliver (FBP: FEDERAL BUREAU OF PHYSICS) and Rufus Dayglo (Tank Girl), spans three decades, from the punk rock ’70s to the decadent ’80s and beyond, charting the rise, fall and redemption of a group of bandits that changed the face of the criminal underworld and closed the door on a legacy.
