I’m Glad You Asked
This week is INSANE.
Big, obvious titles first: Black Panther #1. By Ta-Nehisi Coates, winner of the 2015 National Book Award for Non Fiction for Between the World and Me and a 2015 McArthur Genius Grant. A superbly gifted, mainstream writer on race issues in America writing the reintroduction of Black Panther? And it’s already sold more than 300,000 copies? It’s going to be rad and we’re going to sell out fast. Seriously call and order one if you want it.
Star Wars Poe Dameron #1. Written by Charles Soule, art by Phil Noto. It’s new Star Wars and BB-8 will be there. All the drawings of X-wings, Phil. Give them all to us.
And on to companies not currently in movie theaters: Image is off the charts with their line-up this week. Get your regular dose of doom and gloom with Walking Dead #153. Then cheer up with Grizzly Shark #1 – Ryan Ottley and friends’ joke book about viscous creatures GrizzlyShark and SeaBear turned Actual Published Joke Book. It’s bears and sharks and LOLs.
The Fix #1: You’ll remember Nick Spencer and Steve Lieber from the time you loved them making Superior Foes of Spiderman. Now mix that with a Cohen Brothers film and let them use all the bad words they want and you sort of get the idea. Introduces probable new comics world breakout star, Officer Pretzels. I love this
first issue. If you liked the Deadpool movie this is YOUR book.
The Wicked + The Divine #18: New story arc starts now, and if you haven’t read a single issue this is a good place to jump on. It’s all fame, wealth, life, death, feeling, immortality, betrayal, love, magic and power – Gillen and McKelvie are orchestrating an explosive epic of short-lived teenage gods that ups the ante with this new run. The previous 17 issues are all in trade too if you want to catch up.
Aftershock Comics, a new publisher that’s come out of the gates at a full run, debuts Rough Riders #1 this week. As in Teddy Roosevelt and the Rough Riders – but this squad of riders includes Harry Houdini, Annie Oakley and others. All of Aftershock’s books have been surprising in some way, one of their writers (who is currently working for both of the Big Two and others) told me they’re the best publisher she’s ever worked with, and all of Aftershock’s people are excited about this book. That’s more than enough for me.
Lisa’s Pull: Archie #7, Giant Days #13, Sheriff of Babylon #5, Fix #1, Grizzly Shark #1, Saints #7, Think Tank Creative Destruction #1, Walking Dead #153, Wicked + Divine #18, Black Panther #1, Black Widow #2, Old Man Logan #4, Spider-Man #3, Public Relations tp Vol 1, Bloodlines #1, Vision #6,

Welcome back to Tim’s corner.
Welcome to Tim’s corner. The variety of comic books never ceases to amaze me. Especially in recent years, there are comic books to fit anyone’s interests. The writers and publishers have done much to reach out very diverse groups of people and get them interested in the comic media like never before. For someone who’s been into comics for many, many years, it’s a wonderful thing to see. To support that, I have put out in the drawers, issues of the following titles: Maxx (the originals), Planetary, Preacher, Losers, Usagi Yojimbo, Y the Last Man, Action in the 400s, Daredevil in the 100s, Supergirl vol4, Twilight Zone (Gold Key issues), Uncanny Xmen in the late 100s, Wolverine, Amazing Spiderman issues. Happy Reading.
Hosted by our very own Burl Zorn, on Wednesday nights. Wednesday nights begin at 6 pm.
Games are 5th Edition. All you need is a pencil and dice. All skill levels, newbies and players are welcome! For more info harrass Burl at 651.645.0386 – 24/7 New kits coming next season.
