New Comics Wednesday – 9/21/11

Wow… been a while since I did this! Anyhow, let’s get to it! Batman #1 is obviously the one that folks are going to go nuts about this week, as it’s written by Scott Snyder and thus ludicrously well-written. I have enough copies for folders, but I guarantee you that I *will* sell out by Thursday, along with, honestly, most of the rest of the New 52. (Green Lantern Corps, Blue Beetle, Birds of Prey, Captain Atom, Legion, Nightwing, Red Hood, Catwoman.) If you want them, hurry.

But yes, there are MORE comics coming out that aren’t produced by DC! The biggest this week is Game of Thrones #1 by Dynamite, which I brought in a hojillion copies of just because I think it’s going to be nuts. If you’re into variants, I have a non-lettered Alex Ross cover variant coming that should be super sweet! ($25.) There are also 1-10 variants available for $10.

Marvel published a few comics this week too! Several X-titles, including Schism and adjectiveless X-Men, and we’ve also got Avengers and four (!) Fear Itself mini releases.

Full list below the cut!

New Comics Wednesday – 8/3/11

Another fine week! The time around, we’ve got Flashpoint #4, with a herd of its associated tie-ins (especially the Knight of Vengeance tie-in, which has been nothing short of spectacular!) The other big news is Punisher #1, which is part of the “Big Shots” street level campaign Marvel’s wrapping up this month. After the whole “Frankencastle” thing, I’m pretty stoked about Frank getting a fresh start with a new creative team, so let’s see what happens!

By the way… if you didn’t know, we have a high-grade copy of the first appearance of Punisher available at the store. If you’re a Punisher fan, it’s a magnificent way to show your love!
