Hello everyone! How amazing was Spider-Man Homecoming? I thought it was pretty spectacular. Only problem I see though is the disturbing amount of people ready to throw the Sam Raimi movies away. Let’s everyone slow their roll just a little bit. What a great year for movies it’s been! Also, I remember you fantasizing about much you’d like a Warren Ellis scripted cartoon based on the Castlevania Nintendo games. Well it exists on Netflix and it’s pretty great!
In store news, Mike swears there’s going to a bunch of new (used) graphic novels in the trading posts for both stores this Wednesday and you know what they say about early birds, and early cats…and early ALF’s I guess? They all get the first look at the new trade-ins.
Also! We’re having a Back Issue Sale! Everything in the dollar bins will be half off until the end of the month! See above bad joke about early animals. I know a lot of you missed the Batman Elmer Fudd crossover (it was fantastic). DC just announced a second printing due in 3 weeks! If you’re a subscriber and want it, please let us know quickly so we can order accordingly.
If you’re a fan of hot scifi books or supporting/chatting up indy comic creators, come visit the Culver store in a few weeks to meet Zack Kaplan, the writer of Eclipse. He will be at the Culver store Wednesday morning August 9th to promote the release of the second Eclipse trade.
Finally, those of you that know Max might know he’s been a part of a Ska band called Half Past Two and they’ve recently launched a Kickstarter for their new album. Check out their new music video below then go take a look at their Kickstarter page if it strikes your fancy!
See you at the bottom…

THIS IS IT, TRUE BELIEVERS!
The moment five years in the making is finally here! The first time Peter Parker and Miles Morales met ended with a question – WHO IS THE MILES MORALES OF THE MARVEL UNIVERSE?! Now that the Miles you know and love is with Peter in the Marvel Universe, you’re finally going to get that answer to who the OTHER Miles Morales is! And that’s just the tip of the iceberg as Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli bring you the next heart-stopping adventure for both Peter Parker and Miles Morales!
Last Song #1
Nicky Marshall was saved by rock and roll – or so he likes to think. An awkward upbringing and turmoil following his father’s suicide led Nicky to form a band called Ecstasy with his childhood friend Drey. The music takes them to Los Angeles, raw and gritty and teeming with personalities.
Nicky thinks they’re ready for stardom, but no one’s ever ready for stardom. This first of four oversized issues begins in the 1980s, grows out of grassroots clubs & introduces Ecstasy to the world – whether it’s ready for them or not. From the brand new team of Holly Interlandi on scripts and Sally Cantirino on pencils & inks, this unique, heartbreaking story is about letting the music in… how it changes you and affects everyone around you, for better & worse.
When a terrifying creature from beyond the stars attacks his planet, Dale’s journey begins. But he is not out to save his world. It is already too late for that. As the lone survivor, the only thing he wants is revenge!
Writer Max Bemis (Worst X-Man Ever, Foolkiller) and artist Eoin Marron (Sons of Anarchy Redwood Original) bring you a tale of survival and vengeance like you’ve never seen before.
