Image is producing a monthly magazine consisting of interviews and previews of new books coming out in the concurrent issue of PREVIEWS.
On top of that, Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard will be telling a serialized story of Negan from the Walking Dead in every issue. 4 pages of original story, not to be collected for a very long time. In a book for $1.99
Tell me that isn’t awesome!
Jim Lee’s art is, as alwsys, great. The story was good, but the big thing is that THIS is the prelude for the post-Rebirth Suicide Squad starting in a few months, with what I think is a very interesting premise…
Tom Taylor is becoming one if my favorite writers. This was the last issue of a self contained Batman/Superman in space story, and he hit all the right notes with both lead characters.
I have been a fan of Doctor Strange in comics for a long time, but thus new series keeps blowing me away. Magic is a tough thing to write without it solving the problems it causes, but Jason Aaron has a perfect grasp of the costs and benefits of magic. The art by Chris Bachalo is Perfect! Just friggin’ perfect!
Nice art, great dialogue. This is the prelude to what will be Civil War II in the Marvel Universe, but it already has a strong cast and a very accessible premise. Good guys fighting bad guys will ensue!
Today we open at 11:30 and the Convention live streaming starts at noon. We currently plan on closing at 5 as usual, but will adapt if we need to.
Special Convention variants will be in sale and ALL GRAPHIC NOVELS, TRADE PAPERBACKS AND HARDCOVERS ARE HALF PRICE!
The Pittston St Patrick’s Day Parade will be blocking the roads in Pittston from about 11 to whenever, so plan your route.
This is the conclusion to the first story of this new series, and I’m happy to say I have enjoyed it quite a bit.
It isn’t the original Howard. But it is funny satirical and sometimes sweet — which is at least somewhat like the original.
This Howard is rooted in the Marvel Universe more than he used to be. The fires he faces are familiar to readers of other books, but maybe in a lighter tone. That’s actually an welcome change.
The Gwen-pool back up story was good but a little to short.
BIG NEWS FOR WALKING DEAD FANS! This week, Image Comics has decided that Walking Dead #150 will have 3 additional variant covers (A variant cover is the same issue with a different cover than the standard one).
This means that in addition to the already solicited Walking Dead #150 Adlard cover (standard) and the blank varia nt there will be a cover by Tony Moore, Ryan Ottley and Jason Latour. You can see them all here: http://www.thewalkingdead.com/the-walking-dead-150-variants/

This story just gets better and crazier. Set in the 80s, our heroes are a group of newspaper delivering teen girls. Aliens? Dinosaurs? Robots? Time travelers? At this point it could be all that or something else completely…
