Let's not mix words and get right down to the nitty-gritty. Let's talk some Amazing Staff Picks...

James' Pick

Life of Captain Marvel #1 (of 5)

James' Pick

Writer: Margaret Stohl
Artist: Marguerite Savage, Carlos Pacheco
Inker: Rafael Fonteriz
Colorist: Marcio Menyz
Letterer: VC's Clayton Cowles

THE DEFINITIVE ORIGIN OF CAPTAIN MARVEL! Carol Danvers was just a girl from the Boston suburbs who loved science and the Red Sox until a chance encounter with a Kree hero gave her incredible super-powers. Now, she's a leader in the Avengers and the commander of Alpha Flight. But what if there were more to the story? When crippling anxiety attacks put her on the sidelines in the middle of a fight, Carol finds herself reliving memories of a life she thought was far behind her. You can't outrun where you're from - and sometimes, you HAVE to go home again. But there are skeletons in Captain Marvel's closet - and what she discovers will change her entire world. Written by best-selling author Margaret Stohl and drawn by fan-favorite comics veteran Carlos Pacheco, this is the true origin of Captain Marvel.

Carol Danvers is not necessarily an open book but we do know about her past. About her military background. Her powers. Her love of her kitty. But her home life, though touched on here-and-there, has been a little more of a secret. But secrets, especially ones you hide deep down, can come back and haunt you.

Come by and pick up Life of Captain Marvel #1 (of 5) and see another side of Captain Marvel. One that we never could have expected.

Euthanauts #1

Heather's Pick

Writter: Tini Howard
Artist: Nick Robles
Letterer: Aditya Bidikar

Death is like outer space-a seemingly unknowable, terrifying blackness that yields beautiful discoveries and truths-if only you've got the right kind of rocketship. Thalia Rosewood has had a lifelong obsession with death, keeping her from living her life to the fullest. Mercy Wolfe has a brain tumor the size of a billiard ball, and a need for a new recruit before her next journey begins. Inigo Hanover is a reluctant tether to the world beyond, seeking to continue a cycle that exploration would halt. Go toward the light. Then go beyond. EUTHANAUTS.

There is a place... Just beyond the veil. A place that science cannot explain. Nor religion. A place where death and life intersect. And that is where this tale lies. Within that world. Within those times.

Come by and grab the first issue of Euthanauts #1.

Writer: Sean Kelley McKeever
Artist: Alexandre Tefenkgi

Welcome to Outpost Zero, the smallest town in the universe. The people there work the land, go to the fights every Friday night, and tuck their children into bed-but the Outpost is no place for dreams or aspirations. To survive is ambitious enough. As Alea and her friends graduate to adulthood on a frozen world never meant to support human life, something stirs. Something sees... Explore the mysteries and wonder of the Frost in this oversized debut issue by Eisner-winning writer Sean Kelley McKeever (Mystique), artist Alexandre Tefenkgi, and colorist Jean-Francois Beaulieu (I Hate Fairyland).

The farthest point in the universe. A long time from now. There is a world. Frozen. But life survives. It is difficult. Each person has their place. But... They survive! For how much longer, though? That is always the question. The world outside of the Biome is vast and uncharted. What is it... That lays beyond Outpost Zero? What does the future hold?

James' Pick

Writters: Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, Joshua Williamson
Artist: Francis Manapul
Colorist: Hi-Fi
Letterer: AndWorld Design

Dark Nights: Metal left the DCU transformed in ways both terrifying and wondrous-and only the Justice League is strong enough to face the threats to come...or are they? Four giant beings comprised of the universe's major energies-Mystery, Wonder, Wisdom and Entropy-who sustain their life force by devouring planets are on their way to destroy the planet of Colu. The only way to take down this unimaginable threat is for the superhero teams of Earth to forget everything they thought they knew and form new alliances.
What secrets of the cosmos will Superman, Martian Manhunter and Team Mystery discover? Will Zatanna, Wonder Woman and Team Wonder awaken alien magic they cannot put back to sleep? What can Harley Quinn possibly have to teach the rest of Team Wisdom? And most importantly...why the heck is Beast Boy on Team Entropy with Lobo and Batman? Find out all this and much more in the most exciting, bombastic event of summer 2018! In this kickoff issue to the four-issue miniseries, after Brainiac systematically takes down all of Earth's super-teams, the last thing the League expects is for him to ask for their help! Without their aid, his home planet and the universe are both doomed!

 

There is a hole in the Source Wall. This has not only led to new magics. New super powers. But also... New Villains. Ones that are ready to seek out and destroy Earth. With the Omega Titans already on their way, new teams must form and fight together. It is the dawning of the new Justice Leagues!

Come by and see us today! And we can offer even more wonderful titles!

Deep Roots #1

Norrin's Pick

Writer: Dan Watters
Artist: Val Rodrigues
Colorist: Triona Farrell
Letterer: Aditya Bidikar

Roots, once suffocating under cement, tear through the streets of London to throttle buildings. Vegetable homunculi hold up banks with automatic weapons. There is a green and blooming world beyond our own, fighting back against the human pollutant. We will launch a rescue mission to this Otherworld. But it is cruel and unknowable, and should we become tangled in its vines, more than cities will fall. From Dan Watters and Val Rodrigues comes a story of two worlds, of myth and man, of science and fiction, and the roots they share.

What happens when they fight back? No... Not the Villain. Not the Disenfranchised Youth. The World. The Growth. Mother Nature. What happens when the Plants fight back? The power that they have, the deep and strong roots they carry. Will the Human Race survive? Or will we, in trying to resist, die out? Come in today and grab the thrilling new series from up and coming publisher, Vault Comics.

Heather's Pick

Bingo Love GN

Heather's Pick

When Hazel Johnson and Mari McCray met at church bingo in 1963, it was love at first sight. Forced apart by their families and society, Hazel and Mari both married young men and had families. Decades later, now in their mid-'60s, Hazel and Mari reunite again at a church bingo hall. Realizing their love for each other is still alive, what these grandmothers do next takes absolute strength and courage. From TEE FRANKLIN (Love is Love) and JENN ST-ONGE (Jem & The Misfits), Bingo Love is a touching story of love, family, and resiliency that spans over 60 years. 

Do you need to be emotionally destroyed by a story with queer Grandmothers who, after decades of sexuality suppression, decide that Love is Love and that true strength comes from within? And that we all deserve our own happiness? Are you already crying from this description? Then you NEED Bingo Love. The best part of this heart wrenching story is that it is YA (Young Adult). Everyone can enjoy it!

Now... To break your hearts even further... We... Are... Already sold out. Bingo Love is so popular, that it pre-sold out everywhere! Image Comics has already ordered a Second Printing and it will arrive on shelves on March 14th. Come in and reserve your copy today!

Katie's Pick

Ice Cream Man #1 (2nd Print)

Katie's Pick

Chocolate, vanilla, existential horror, drug addiction, musical fantasy...there's a flavor for everyone's misery. Ice Cream Man is a genre-defying comic book series featuring disparate "one-shot" tales of sorrow, wonder, and redemption. Each installment features its own cast of strange characters, dealing with their own special sundae of suffering. And on the periphery of all of them, like the twinkly music of his colorful truck, is the Ice Cream Man-a weaver of stories, a purveyor of sweet treats. Friend. Foe. God. Demon. The man who, with a snap of his fingers-lickety split!-can change the course of your life forever. Written by W. MAXWELL PRINCE (One Week in the Library), with art by MARTÍN MORAZZO (Great Pacific) and CHRIS O'HALLORAN (Generation Gone).

Have you seen that Netflix show Black Mirror? Each story tells a deep, winding tale of woe, life and reality. It builds a level of fiction but also gives us a glimpse into truth. If you love stories like that, then Ice Cream Man is 100%... No... 1,000% for you! It has chills, thrills while also telling the stories of human nature. Its reality that portrays the darkness that resides within. But do not fall in love with the characters, as each issue weaves a new tale that will leave you hanging onto the edge of your seat.

The series was so popular that, at its original release back in January, it completely sold out. But Image Comics would not leave us hanging. The Second Printing is on the shelves. Come grab a copy now!

Hugo Award-nominated novelist Saladin Ahmed (Black Bolt) and artist Sami Kivelä (Beautiful Canvas) present one woman's search for the truth that destroyed her family.

Forces that took her husband from her. Forces she has sworn to destroy.

Darkness seeps out in ways that many just ignore. Including the Police and hardened News Journalists. But the best, do not need to have their names on the front page. And Elena Abbott is the best. She is not taken seriously, especially during a time of racial unrest. But... She sees passed what others refuse to even look at. The evil behind the mundane. And the Cult that took everything away.

Heather's Pick

Batman: White Knight #1

Heather's Pick

In a world where Batman has gone too far, The Joker must save Gotham City.
He's been called a maniac, a killer and the "Clown Prince of Crime" but "white knight"? Never. Until now... Set in a world where the Joker is cured of his insanity and homicidal tendencies, The Joker, now known as "Jack," sets about trying to right his wrongs. First he plans to reconcile with Harley Quinn, and then he'll try to save the city from the one person who he thinks is truly Gotham City's greatest villain: Batman! Superstar writer and artist Sean Murphy (Punk Rock Jesus, The Wake) presents a eight-issue miniseries of a twisted Gotham City with a massive cast of heroes and villains that, at its heart, is a tragic story of a hero and a villain: Batman and The Joker. But which is the hero-and which the villain? 

Joker... As a "good guy"? No... Wait... What? He is healed? Noooooo?!?!? This book is crazy! It is beautiful! Though, we did not need to tell you that! Sean Murphy's art and storytelling and breathtaking. Batman: White Knight #1 WILL sell out. Critics are already suggesting that this book will rank along side titles such as Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. Which means you need to pick it up before it is gone!
