The Source Crew

OUR GOOD FRIEND AND LOCAL CREATOR, ELIOT RAHAL, WILL BE SIGNING AT THE SOURCE FOR
NINJAK VS VU #1!
Colin King is Ninjak, MI-6’s deadliest intelligence operative and weapons expert. When the ruthless assassin Roku exploits his greatest weakness, Ninjak will be forced to betray his closest allies. Now, on the run, he must face off against the most powerful heroes known to man for a high-octane, take-no-prisoners trial by fire more perilous and more unpredictable than any he’s faced before. In 2018, the world’s most dangerous super-spy goes to war with the Valiant Universe…
Guest-starring X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Livewire, Archer & Armstrong, Shadowman, and many more, don’t miss the ULTIMATE JUMPING-ON POINT for the most acclaimed and hotly followed publisher anywhere in comics today as Ninjak leads an all-star introduction to the most brutal fighters the Valiant Universe has to offer!

ELIOT WILL START SIGNING AT 11 AM!

BSG VS BSG #1 (OF 6)
At last! The epic story you’ve been dying to see is here, a galaxy and timeline-spanning saga bringing the two very different (and yet so very much alike) crews of the Battlestar Galacticas series together. But don’t expect this historic meeting of heroes to be friendly:  they have no idea why they have been brought together, or what the result of this unprecedented meeting is. And it starts here as the legendary Commander Cain and the crew of the Pegasus are revealed to be alive, and have encountered an individual they never thought they would meet: the last Cylon. All this has happened before, but there will NEVER be anything like it again!

We are NO LONGER buying Bulk Cards.

Thanks to you folks, we have all that we need for now..

OLD MAN HAWKEYE #1 (OF 12) LEG
AN EYE FOR AN EYE Part 1
The super heroes have fallen.  The country has been divided into territories controlled by super villains.  Among the wastelands lives CLINT BARTON – one of the few Avengers to survive.  But it’s been 45 years, and he’s no Avenger.  Trying to eke out a living anyway he can, the former HAWKEYE is confronted with a startling discovery:  the sharpshooter is going blind.  With time running short, Clint realizes there’s one last thing he wants to see: revenge for his fallen comrades-in-arms.
Rising-star writer ETHAN SACKS and superstar artist MARCO CHECCHETTO take you back to the Wastelands in a story set five years before the original classic OLD MAN LOGAN.

Shieldmaiden Sunday

We see women all of the time around here, but they don’t always see each other. And so, join us for Shieldmaiden Sundays. We’re open 12-6 on Sundays and during that time, if you’re a lady nerd seeking to hang out with other lady nerds to chat comics and cosplay, play casual magic or table top games, or start an RPG campaign, this is your day.

Other events in the game room will proceed as normal, under our every day, general game room guidelines. Our intent is to provide the common time and space for women who have asked about how to find other female members of the community. In the event of a special, large event that occupies the game room for the day it will be on the store calendar and anyone on our staff will be happy to help you reserve space on another night if you wish.

Welcome to Tim’s corner.  Wow, it’s been cold.  I am so glad that I can curl up inside, be warm, and have lots of comic books to read.  I hope that you can do that too.  For those that like to read back issues, I have added issues of the following titles to the drawers:  Savage Sword of Conan, Gargoyles, Pirates of Dark Waters, Savage She-Hulk, Secrets of Haunted House, Spectacular Spiderman, Thor, Buffy the Vampire Slayers, Conan the Barbarian, Creatures on the Loose, Crisis on Infinite Earths, and Daredevil.  Also, from our inventory, I have put out titles from Star Wars Legacy through Suicide Risk.
