Oblivion Song #1

Norrin's Pick

Writer: Robert Kirkman
Artist: Lorenzo De Felici
Colorist: Annalisa Leoni
Letterer: Rus Wooton

A decade ago, 300,000 citizens of Philadelphia were suddenly lost in Oblivion. The government made every attempt to recover them, but after many years, they gave up. Nathan Cole...won't. He makes daily trips, risking his life to try and rescue those still living in the apocalyptic hellscape of Oblivion. But maybe...Nathan is looking for something else? Why can't he resist the siren call of the Oblivion Song?

 

If a catastrophic event befell our world and your family was taken away from you, how far would you go to find again? What would you risk? Would you face lands of unspeakable destruction? A lost world filled with the deadliest of creatures? Nathan Cole would. If it means getting those back he lost. He would go anywhere. He would risk everything.

Robert Kirkman (Walking Dead, Outcast) and  Lorenzo De Felici's new Skybound series, Oblivion Song, takes you to the far ends of the darkest places while tugging at your heart strings. You can almost hear the soft, echoing song alluded to in the title. This is a must pick up. So come by and grab a copy today.

"THERE'S MAGIC IN THAT THERE CALDRON!" Things in Fairyland certainly are a-brewin' with Gert out of the picture. Duncan Dragon joins the workforce, and Horribella means to collect what's hers as we FINALLY get that in-depth look into Fairyland's service industry and logistics!

We know that life in Fairyland is like life in the real world. People need to work to live. And the Service Industry is not for the faint of heart. Will Duncan survive? Does it even matter?

Gideon Falls #1

Heather's Pick

Writer: Jeff Lemire
Art: Andrea Sorrentino
Colors: Dave Stewart
Letter: Steve Wands

A brand-new ongoing series from the acclaimed bestselling creative team of Old Man Logan and Green Arrow! The lives of a reclusive young man obsessed with a conspiracy in the city's trash, and a washed-up Catholic priest arriving in a small town full of dark secrets, become intertwined around the mysterious legend of The Black Barn, an otherworldly building that is alleged to have appeared in both the city and the small town, throughout history, bringing death and madness in its wake. Rural mystery and urban horror collide in this character-driven meditation on obsession, mental illness, and faith.

 

A shadow has fallen on a small town. The Black Barn has appeared and the omen can only bring about death. Will the confluence of events that happen around the small town bring destruction or is it merely fate that will bring blood? When it comes to suspense. Conspiracy. Mystery. Gideon Falls from Image Comics is an absolute must. Issue #1 is here!

It is also... Sold out! The series is so good that we could not keep it on the racks. If you were not able to grab a copy while we had it, come in and make a pre-order. The 2nd Print will be available on April 4th.

Another week. Another set of books! Come by the store and we can offer you even more!

Deathbed #1

Katie's Pick

Writer: Josuah Williamson
Artist Riley Rossmo
Colorist: Ivan Plascencia

Myth, hack, sex symbol, stark raving lunatic-all of these words have been used to describe Antonio Luna, the world's greatest living adventurer. Or at least he was until 20 years ago, when he mysteriously vanished from the public eye. Now the ninety-year-old has returned and claims to be on his deathbed. Which is where Valentine Richards, a failed novelist turned reporter, comes in. Val is hired to travel to Luna's remote castle home and uncover where the old star has been all these years, and just how much of what he says is actually true. But once Val starts to hear Luna's tale, she finds herself entering into an insane world of psychedelic violence and explosive supernatural adventure. This brand-new series is a bold collaboration between Joshua Williamson (The Flash Rebirth, Nailbiter) and Riley Rossmo (Cowboy Ninja Viking). Before it's through, they promise to take you to the Moon and back-and everywhere in between-plus some places that are totally off the map.

Have you ever been on an adventure that you could never really talk about. Because, if you did, no one would believe you? Stories. Places. Events. All things you have done and known to be true... But you will be seen as a loon if you speak on it? Those are the stories and places Antonio Luna wishes to tell before he passes. Stories that would amaze. But could potentially be too good to be true. The new Vertigo series, Deathbed #1, is on shelves now.
