Getting Ready for Halloween!

It's that time of the year when the weather cools down (slightly) and the leaves start to turn golden brown (unless they were that way from the heat already). This can only mean that Halloween is close at hand. It also means that Halloween ComicFest is almost here. The date is October 29, 2016 and we are lining up some fun. We already have Erik Reeves (Hoodratz) signing for us. Check the Facebook event page for more additions as we go.

We'll have our own costume contest that evening, but here's a link to the Greatest Costume Contest put on by Diamond. In fact, Robin (below) was a runner-up last year. Don't miss your chance on some great comic book swag!

Here's a link to the Preview's Halloween Gift Guide 2016. Plenty of Halloween and horror goodies for your spooky needs! Get your orders in now or we won't be able to get them in before the holiday. AND pre-pay and we'll give you a 20% discount.

Short List of Titles to Hit Final Order Cutoff on Monday 8-8-2016

Here's a very short list of some of the more prominent titles due for FOC on Monday 8-8-2016. Let us know if you need to add any of these to your pull list.

(W) Gerard Way (A/CA) Nick Derington
  The atoms are buzzing. The daydreams crowd sentient streets, and the creative team has been warned, "Turn back now or suffer the mighty consequence of sheer, psycho-maniacal mayhem." Generation-arsonists unite-this is DOOM PATROL, and the God of the Super Heroes is bleeding on the floor.
A blenderized reimagining of the ultimate series of the strange, DOOM PATROL combines elements from classic runs, new directions, and things that could not be. Our entry point is Casey Brinke, a young EMT on the graveyard shift to abstract enlightenment, with a past so odd that she's not entirely sure what is real and what is not. Along with her partner, Sam Reynolds, the pair blaze a path through the city and its denizens, finding the only quiet that exists at 3am is the chaos of the brain. When the pair answer a hit-and-run call, they find themselves face to face with a familiar figure: Cliff Steele, AKA Robotman. 
"It gets weirder from here," writer Gerard Way had to say about the book, with artist Nick Derington gripping tightly on the wheel of the ambulance. The pair's only communication? Shouting out of the open windows while at high velocity. Who needs a new roommate? Who names a cat "Lotion"? And when do we get to see all those muscles? 
Find your answers inside the pages of this comic book, as we set the stage for new beginnings, as well as the re-introduction of some classic DOOM PATROL characters, including Niles Caulder, Negative Man, Flex Mentallo, and Crazy Jane. 
The debut title of DC's Young Animal line kicks off with a removable sticker on its cover: Pull back the gyro to reveal its secrets, but be warned-there is no turning back.
DC COMICS(W) Dave Croatto (A/CA) Tom Richmond  A 100% UNauthorized parody of Goodnight, Moon-as only the world-(in)famous MAD Magazine can do it!Batman may be ready for bed-but crime never sleeps! And before the Caped Crusader can turn in for the night, he'll have to deal with villains like The Joker, Bane, Mr. Freeze, Catwoman, and the Penguin! If the Dark Knight hopes to ever catch some Zs, he'll have to catch Gotham City's most dangerous criminals first!In this all-new story from The Usual Gang of Idiots at MAD Magazine, the bestselling children's book Goodnight, Moon is parodied with the heroes and villains from the world of Batman!
