Katie's Pick

Rocko's Modern Life #2

Katie's Pick

Rocko's new job is more than he bargained for, so he'll have to do whatever it takes to get fired. Featuring a backup story from David DeGrand that sends Rocko and Heffer to O-Town's very own comic convention.

We spoke about this one last month, but we cannot hold in our excitement! THe series we loved as children is back and... Rocko may not be super happy about it. Life in the modern day is hard.

Ms. Marvel #26

James' Pick

An OLD ENEMY has returned with a monstrous new trick to boot! Will MS. MARVEL be in time to save the day, or will her new life keep her away from the city she loves?

We know... We know... We talk about Ms. Marvel a lot so we will not get into the details of the issue. You already know you should be reading it. But we do not want to talk about the upcoming Amazing Comic Book Club that is happening! On Friday, January 26th, we will be hosting an All Ages book club to talk Comics, Media and... Maybe eat a cookie or two... And the book? Ms. Marvel TP Volume 1! Come by, grab a copy of the volume from the store, read it and be ready to chat!

Two really fun books to start of the New Year! And we have even more books to offer when you come into the store!

Amazing Staff Picks (12/27/2017)

This is it. The LAST Amazing Staff Picks of 2017. Can you believe how fast this year went by? Let's finish 2017 out strong with a few really AMAZING Amazing Staff Picks!

Norrin's Pick

Rick & Morty #33

Norrin's Pick

One Experimental Summer! It's the hottest, most boring part of the year-so can you blame Summer for going exploring in Grandpa Rick's garage for a dimension where she gets what she wants? She'll learn a little about science, a lot about life, and a whole bunch about having a crush on a girl.

It is the long anticipated Summer Issue! No.. No... Not like the "Summer", warm sun, playing on the beach issue. But Summer's Issue! Summer may be a little bored but it isn't like she doesn't have a huge garage of her Grandpa Rick's gadgets to play around with. From Writers Tini Howard and Magdalene Visaggio, along with artists CJ Cannon and Katy Farina, watch as Summer explores strange new worlds, experiences new loves and new loses. Rick and Morty #33 is here and it's waiting for you!

Katie's Pick

Imaginary Fiends #2

Katie's Pick

Melba is assigned to her first case, investigating a series of child disappearances in rural Georgia. As Melba and Agent Crockett uncover clues about the horror gripping the residents, Melba must resist both the temptation to escape into the real world after spending seven years locked up and the terrible appetite of the newly unleashed Polly Peachpit, Melba's own personal psychic parasite-a massive spider-human only Melba can see, but is far from imaginary.

This world is filled with Monsters. Monsters that you or I may not see, but ones that stalk the minds of those most impressionable. Those who's minds are weak, they are the ones that know the truth. For they are the only ones to see them, the IMPs (Interdimensional Mental Parasites). Tim Seeley (Grayson) and Stephen Molnar (Danger Girl Renegade) bring their Slender Man murder style horror story to life in Melba's tale of Aliens, Psychopathy and Mystery! The first and second issues are out now.

Heather's Pick

Hawkman Found #1

Heather's Pick

One of DC'S greatest heroes is missing! No one has seen or heard from Carter Hall-a.k.a. Hawkman-in years. Reincarnated repeatedly since the dawn of humanity, Hawkman has spent his many lives uncovering history's most fantastic mysteries, and now he has become one himself! Take a journey into the one of the darkest corners of the DC Universe as a mysterious man tries to piece together what happened to Hawkman, and how it all connects to the events of DARK NIGHTS: METAL!

Hawkman... Carter Hall... Has gone missing. But that is only the beginning of the mystery. Hawkman's entire reason for being is destiny. A destiny of renewal. A destiny of love. A destiny so heavy only a warrior could carry. In this Dark Nights Metal tie-in, writer Jeff Lemire (Descender) and artists Bryan Hitch (Justice League of America) and  Kevin Nowlan (Doctor Strange) bring Hall's story to the precipice of return. But how high and what that precipice conceals... Now those are the questions. Hawkman Found #1 is on shelves now! (And you can't miss it with its shiny cover!)

New Comic Book Day (08/09/2017) - The Amazing Staff Picks

There are so many new titles! So many extraordinary reads and we are here to suggest our favorites. Check out this week's Amazing Staff Picks!

Heather' Pick

Mister Miracle #1

Heather's Pick

From the team behind The Sheriff of Babylon and the Hugo Award-nominated writer of Vision comes a unique new take on one of Jack Kirby's most beloved New Gods.
Scott Free is the greatest escape artist that ever lived. So great that he escaped Granny Goodness' gruesome orphanage and the dangers of Apokolips to travel across galaxies and set up a new life on Earth with his wife, the former female fury known as Big Barda. Using the stage alter ego of Mister Miracle, he has made a career for himself showing off his acrobatic escape techniques. He even caught the attention of the Justice League, which counted him among its ranks. 
You might say Scott Free has everything...so why isn't it enough? Mister Miracle has mastered every illusion, achieved every stunt, pulled off every trick - except one. He has never escaped death. Is it even possible? Our hero is going to have to kill himself if he wants to find out.

Writer Tom King (Batman - Rebirth) and artist Mitch Gerads (Punisher) really hit the ground sprinting. (Yup, they raced way past "running".) Mister Miracle exposes a brittle side of the New God and what it takes to stand up, even when you are at your weakest moments, when faced against unimaginable odds. Mister Miracle #1 is filled with punch-in-the-gut emotion that makes it so easy to flip from page-to-page that you do not even realize you have been sucked in. You really... REALLY need to come in and grab a copy of your own!

That is... If we were not already sold out... If you missed the first round, do not fret. We are currently taking pre-orders for the 2nd prints!

Katie's Pick

Redlands #1

Katie's Pick

A brand-new horror book from the minds of Eisner Award-winner JORDIE BELLAIRE (Pretty Deadly) and critically acclaimed artist VANESA R. DEL REY (Scarlet
Witch
) brings you to the sleepy, sunny town of Redlands, Florida. The police are failing to maintain control of their old-fashioned town, and a coven of killer witches plan to take everything from them. This summer, hide your bibles.

There are places all over the world... Drenched in darkness. And sometimes that darkness, that classic human darkness, needs to be wiped clean. Made anew. Bellaire put out a letter (not the one in the back of the book) that stated that Redlands was her way of getting out her emotions. Of letting lose the flood gates, so to speak. And, by every definition, Redlands is exactly that. The book is magic, freedom, wickedness and emotion all rolled together. It is so good, in fact, both Heather and Katie are suggesting it. So you know you need to come in and grab it!

BONUS SUGGESTION: Katie has had Kill or Be Killed, by Ed Brubaker (W) and Sean Phillips (A), as her Staff Pick in the past. Well... Volume 2 is out and it is waiting to go home with you!

James's Pick

Ms. Marvel #21

James's Pick

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer - a familiar adage for a veteran hero like Ms. Marvel. But when Kamala discovers that one of her old friends has joined forces with her enemies, things get a LOT more complicated...

When you are a Hero, especially a young Hero, often the most challenging battles are not those fought on the streets against a dangerous villain. But those battles fought inwards, between those whom you believed you were close to. Your colleagues, companions or family. But if you found out that one of them had betrayed you... What would you do? When Kamala is faced with these difficult life questions will she do what is right in the name of Justice? Or will she do what is best for her friendship?

Do we really need to sell you on G. Willow Wilson's (A-Force) young Heroine that has literally taken the Comics World by storm? Do we? Ms. Marvel is phenomenal and you should be reading it! No questions. You SHOULD be reading it! RIGHT NOW!

Do you need more titles? Come in to the store and we will happily hand you more and more great reads. But, for now... TTNF and Ta-Ta 'till next week!
