Hello everyone! I hope those of you that went to SDCC had a safe and happy journey. If you couldn’t make it, don’t forget that even though you may have a heavy heart…you also have a heavier wallet! So that’s something. Kriss, our beloved Culver City Toyhound did in fact brave the SDCC crowds to bring the store back some goodies so get in soon this week to see what they are as I am sure supplies are limited.
Speaking of toys, Culver will also be putting on weekly toy flash sales for the next couple months. This week, they’re selling all action figures for 15% off!
Finally, we will have more copies of Shirtless Bearfighter #1 and Calexit #1 so if you have a pull and would like one put aside let us know. See you at the bottom…
Creator Signing – Zack Kaplan (Eclipse)

New Comics Highlights
Click here for a full list of all of the week’s new releases.
Heavenly Blues #1
(W) Ben Kahn (A) Bruno Hidalgo
People live. People die. The “good” are pleasantly escorted off to Heaven; while the rest unceremoniously rots in Hell. Hell – a world where torture isn’t retribution, it’s just hazing. Isaiah Jefferson fancied himself a dashing rogue; the greatest thief of the Great Depression, but a cruel betrayal left him dead in the dirt. Erin Foley was a scared grifter desperate not to be another child fed to the violent maw of the Salem Witch Trials. When they’re given the chance to leave Hell and spit in the face of judgment, can they face their demons and become the master thieves they were meant to be? Heavenly Blues reunites the team behind Shaman to deliver a mystical heist mash-up from beyond the grave.
Savage Dragon #225 XXX Cover
(W/A) Erik Larsen
Comics legend and Image Comics partner Erik Larsen will push the envelope in celebration of the company’s 25th anniversary this July with a sexy, sultry XXX cover by Rafael Krás not for the faint of heart (and certainly NSFW) in SAVAGE DRAGON #225. This cover will be polybagged and the NSFW art will not be visible unless the polybag is opened.
Go Go Power Rangers #1
(W) Ryan Parrot (A) Dan Mora
The untold, personal story of what happens to Jason, Kim, Trini, Zack, and Billy following in the days after they first became Power Rangers. Fighting evil is hard, but surviving high school may be even harder-welcome to real life in Angel Grove.
Doom Patrol #7
(W) Gerard Way (A) Michael Allred
How have you been, Niles Caulder? The Chief is back, and he’s ready to reshape the new Doom Patrol to be just like the old Doom Patrol – a prospect not everyone is happy with. But the team’s former leader hasn’t grown less manipulative in his old age, so nobody make any rash decisions. Pretty sure he’s up to something. Michael Allred (iZOMBIE, Silver Surfer) joins The team for this special issue.
Flash (Rebirth) Deluxe Collection Book 01 HC
