The Countdown to X (mas) – Wednesday, December 6th, 2017

The Countdown to X (mas) – Wednesday, December 6th, 2017

Barbarella is back! Issue #1 is out. It’s been decades since the French  Sci-Fi Graphic Novel was made into a movie that introduced Jane Fonda to most of us (even if we were too young to see the movie). It’s not bad, at first glance without a careful reading, and our buddy Kenneth Rocafort did the main cover and a logo-less variant! (We have a pretty low bar for what qualifies as “Adult Content”, and this reaches it. But think HBO, not XXX.)

And that’s not all! Here’s a short list: Amazing Venom Alpha, Batman, Batman White Knight, Black Bolt, Black Cloud, Black Lightning, Black Sable, DC Holiday Special, Snow White 80th Anniversary, Green Arrow and Lanterns, Harley & Ivy & Betty & Veronica, Paper Girls, Star Wars Darth Vader, Superman, Walking Dead. Complete list of this week’s comics and some pics far below.

Also, The new Jack Kirby 4th World monster reminded me – if your boat anchor chain rusted through so you are drifting, we have about 50 different Omni-Busses, all of which will give you a workout when you buy, wrap and place under the tree as a gift for your favorite fan, which may or may not be yourself, OR hang off the chain and anchor your boat. I challenge you to find a store with more books with and about comics worthy of giving away.  Or Keeping.

I made this list last week, and I’m going to keep adding to it for the next 3 weeks – what we have tons of:

  • Pokemon packs and gift boxes, Yu Gi Oh and Magic the Gathering in all kinds of packages for gifts.
  • Funko Pops, Mystery Minis, other “blind boxes” and bags, DC and Marvel Action Figures, Walking Dead, Minecraft, Five Nights, etc.
  • About 100 different Superhero and Cartoon-y themed T-Shirts (sorry, no kids sizes) and tote bags, including Masked Character Hoodies (the hood is a mask!)
  • Huge selection of Japanese Manga (in English, but reading backwards),
  • Supplies for game and sports cards, comics, and even box protectors for Funko Pops.
  • Dozens of the best Young Reader and Young Adult graphics novels, like Babysitters Club, Drama, Smile, Sisters, Avatar, Jedi Academy, Vader’s Son & Daughter, and 30 Little Golden Books from Star Wars and the Marvel Universe. Lots of reprint books from your favorite animated shows like Rick & Morty, Simpsons, Steven Universe, My Little Pony, and on and on.
  • What else? Hmmm. Oh, yeah, comics and graphic novels and reprints by the thousands, including all those heavy Omni’s.
  • This is not even close to a complete list. If you’ve never been here, you will not believe how much there is. It’s pretty overwhelming.

You WILL find something.

And, there will be new announcements between now and the end of the year, regarding hours, new merchandise, and maybe a special sale. And you can get them – Click Here.

As always,  thanks to GoCollect.com for putting out their mostly accurate list of comics and covers every week. If you so desire, Click here to see their whole list. They may have elected to use a variant that we may not carry, or used pre-release art to represent a title, or listed things we don’t buy at all. Or they may get a few from next week in there, OR catch up with ones they missed last week – so the covers you see here may not be the ones you see on our shelf this week. Our list is usually late enough that it reflects only what we got,  but not late enough to eliminate sellouts that might have happened by the time you see this. Also, we reserve the right to make mistakes and forget to list things, or forget to delete them when they don’t show up like we thought they would.
