Han Solo’s Close Call/New Comics

Posted by BRiAN On March - 7 - 2015

It’s Saturday. It’s warming up and Thursday’s snow is melting. We’ve also made it through a week of March already. Here’s what’ll be out for the 2nd new comic day for the month!



Han Solo’s close call…

Last week we lost one of Sci-Fi’s greatest…and just the other day another one escaped by the skin of his teeth (which truly falls into step with most of his characters). Harrison Ford crashed a single engine WWII plane (a 1942 Ryan Aeronautical ST3KR for those who like that sorta info) on a golf course in California on Thursday…while we were all hunkered down because of that annoying snow. Thankfully he’s alive and just a bit battered and bruised. My favorite bit from all this is that he’s crash a plane before and walked away.

Nice try Fett. You may have defeated the Sarlacc, climbed outta the Great Pit of Carkoon, waited patiently biding your time all of these years but it’ll take more than that to capture Solo.


There’s A Magic Pre-Release Coming Once Again To Willow Grove!


Join us at our Willow Grove location the third weekend of March when we will be running 3 Prerelease events for the next Magic set, Dragons of Tarkir!

STK665764[1](because this game looks insane!)
(W) Peter J. Tomasi (A) Viktor Bogdanovic, Art Thibert (CA) Dan Panosian
The Joker is dead. Arkham City is closed. As a new day begins, Bruce Wayne finds himself in devastating pain, recovering from his injuries and questioning whether his role as Batman is still necessary to the city’s survival. But as the sun rises in Gotham City, dangerous new threats emerge from the shadows…and the Arkham Knight is just beginning. Don’t miss this in-continuity prequel comic set prior to the events of the brand-new video game Batman: Arkham Knight!.
(W) Brian Lynch, Ryan North (A) Jerry Gaylord, Ian McGinty (CA) Felipe Smith
WHY WE LOVE IT: Similar to our Big Trouble in Little China comics, we’re returning readers to one of our favorite-and most excellent-cult-classic properties with a new Bill & Ted adventure of epic proportions. And because we’re fans first, we’re making sure it’s something WE would read. Wyld Stallyns forever!
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: If you’re a fan of the films, our comics will pick up where they left off. Main creative team Brian Lynch (Angel: After the Fall) and Jerry Gaylord (Fanboys vs. Zombies) bring you all the silly humor and likable characters mixed with some cool historical science fiction you love! Plus, each story will have a backup adventure! This issue features a tale of tech terror by Ryan North (Adventure Time) and Ian McGinty (Bravest Warriors)!
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Following the time-traveling historic epic of Excellent Adventure and the turbulent life and death of Bogus Journey, Bill and Ted must now fulfill their destiny as the inspiration for galactic harmony! How can someone hate the Wyld Stallyns as much as the evil Chuck De Nomolos? With the power of time travel, Bill and Ted set their sights on turning a young 27th-century Nomolos’ non-nonheinous attitude into something most outstanding and metal!
91mHCFq7emL(an Endgame tie in!)
(W) Brian Buccellato (A) Roge Antonia (CA) Rafael Albuquerque

STK651680[1](breaking people outta hell? you have my attention)
(W) Cullen Bunn (A/CA) Brian Churilla
There are thousands of Hells, each unique, each terrible. Mega-cities ruled by vicious gangs. Empires where the most perverse are well-respected. Wastelands roamed by prehistoric monstrosities. With the proper tools and know-how… you can infiltrate Hell whether you’re dead or not. With the proper tools and know-how, you can break out. Project Kerberos has developed this forbidden technology, and a special forces extraction team is dispatched to rescue lost souls from the infernal realm.

(W) Becky Cloonan (A) Andy Belanger (CA) Becky Cloonan

Where did her cabin mate disappear to? Who is that creep across the hall? And why does she always feel like she’s being watched? Inspired by classic mysteries and weird fiction, SOUTHERN CROSS is a crucible of creeping anxiety and fear as Braith struggles with the ghosts of her past on board a ship that holds secrets best kept buried.
STK663746[1](Same old Spawn…or is it?!)
(W) Paul Jenkins (A/CA) Jonboy
The return of Al Simmons, and the start of a brand new era for SPAWN!
No one quite knows where Al’s been all this time, but it’s clear he’s come back a changed man. Wiser, stronger, and with the memories from an experience that’s he’s still struggling to understand. Tucked away in a crime-ridden corner of New York City, he’s beginning to forge new alliances, preparing defenses, and testing out his newly acquired powers… because there’s a battle coming, and it’s something that makes the Heaven/Hell thing seem like a petty squabble. So just who did Al piss off so badly while he was away?Paul Jenkins has replaced Brian Wood to be the next writer of SPAWN.

STK659493[1](Julia Wertz is one of Rob big time faves!)
(W/A/CA) Julia Wertz
In 2004, Julia Wertz began a series of funny, irreverent autobiographical comics she called “The Fart Party.” After posting these comics online at to acclaim and controversy. She eventually started collecting these comics as self-published minis which found their way to Atomic Books in Baltimore who thought they ought to be collected into a proper book so as to garner Julia more laughs and hate mail. As these things go, the first volume was so successful, there was a second volume. Both are out of print, but Museum of Mistakes collects them into one book, plus numerous pages of Julia’s early comic work, unpublished and/or previously uncollected comics, short stories, illustrations, process pages, hate mail, sketchbook pages, tear stains, and more.
