Monday Update: What’s New for 9/3/14

Swamp_Thing_Vol_5_Futures_End-1_Cover-1September is upon us! Summer is nearly behind us, and some serious comics are about to hit us from all angles. That’s right, weeks don’t come much bigger than this. Death of Wolverine officially begins, DC’s Futures End month kicks off, Original Sin concludes, a new Dark Tower series starts, Grendel and The Shadow meet, and much, much more. Let’s jump right in, shall we? Here’s the Monday Update.

The spotlight this week goes to the official kick-off of DC’s Futures End month. Each week in September, DC will be releasing 3D Lenticular Futures End tie-ins. In case you haven’t been keeping up, Futures End is a weekly DC title that takes place 5 years in the future, where Brother Eye has essentially taken over the world. While the main book takes a broad look at the DCU as a whole in relation to these events, the special Futures End one shots will focus on specific characters. Plus, we’ll be offering special sets of all the 3D covers all month long, so get them while they’re hot! Don’t miss this time-sprawling event.

Over on the Marvel side of things, this week officially marks the beginning of the “Death of Wolverine” story arc. Yes, Marvel is killing off (arguably) it’s most popular, and it’s not going to be quick. There are several miniseries planed that will focus on the loss of Logan, and it all starts this wednesday in Death of Wolverine #1. Next, it’s the grand finale of Original sin! Who really killed the Watcher? What will be their ultimate fate? What new secrets will be revealed? Where did the Watcher get his robes from? Many of these questions will be answered in Original Sin #8. Finally, speaking of major Marvel Events, the “March to Axis” continues in Captain America #24. The Red Skull has been up to all sorts of crazy stuff since he got his hands of ol’ Charles Xavier’s brain. What is his master plan? Don’t miss this set up for Marvel’s next big crossover event: Axis!

Meanwhile, There’s a new Dark Tower series starting this week called Dark Tower: Drawing of the Three Prisoner #1, some DC Total Heroes figures are coming in, and the Forever Evil hardcover finally arrives. Plus, two comic icons collide in Grendel vs. The Shadow #1, two other comic icons collide in Hawkeye vs. Deadpool #0, some more Star Wars Black Series figures are on the way, and there’s a Walking Dead hoodie coming in to keep you warm this winter.

There’s even more though, and you can see it all at the bottom of this post! Yes, the complete diamond shipping list is just a few paragraphs below, and it is filled to the brim with good stuff that’s heading to our very store this week! Be careful though, sometimes a few things on this list might not actually show up in the store, so be sure to check with us first for availability. As always, everything you see here will not be available until Wednesday, September 3rd.

What will you be reading this week? Can a trip to the Mediterranean prevent Lady Umbra’s mind control in Vampirella #4? Will there be a plethora of tentacles in Squidder #3? (Hint: Probably) If you put scotch tape on a stick of butter, does that make it butterscotch tape? Let us know on our Facebook page.

the spotlight this week goes to Wolverine #12. In case you hadn’t heard, Wolverine is going to die. There’s been quite a buildup to the “Death of Wolverine” story arc, and this week’s Wolverine is the finale of “3 Months to Die”. Sabertooth has been messing with Logan pretty hard for a while now, and he’s finally done playing. It’s going to be a real game changer. How will Logan meet his end? The beginning of the end starts this Wednesday.

In other Marvel news, there’s more going on than just Wolverine’s demise. In fact, we have a trio of Original Sin tie-ins! This week’s titles are Avengers #34, Guardians of the Galaxy #18, and Original Sin #5.4. Next, it seems like Inhuman has finally gotten itself on a regular schedule because Inhuman #4 is on the way! Thor pays a visit to New Attilan, but why? And who is this mysterious Reader character? Finally, with the threat of Kang behind them, it’s time for the Uncanny Avengers to deal with the aftermath. It’s been quite a ride for the mutant/superhuman team so far, and as they look to the future, you can bet there will be all sorts of new danger and weirdness on the way. Don’t miss Uncanny Avengers #23.

It’s the last week before DC’s Futures End month. So, before we take a look into the future, let’s spend some time in the here and now. first up, we have the overdue return of Batman/Superman! Following the events of “first contact” Superman has amnesia and is hanging out with Selina Kyle, and Batman has teamed up with Lois Lane to find the missing Man of steel.

The paling cult and Parallax decide to join the fray. Should make for an interesting afternoon! Don’t miss Sinestro #5. Finally, Star Spangled War Stories Featuring GI Zombie #2 is coming out. I couldn’t possibly sum this one up better than the official solicitation, so here you go. Straight from DC: An undercover operation exposes a guided missile terrorist plot – and the only thing in its way is a zombie with an AK-47! See? What more could I have said than that?

Meanwhile, the DC Bombshells star girl statue shows up, Doctor Who: The 10th Doctor #2 arrives hot off the heels of the season premiere, and the Fabrikations Boba Fett will be arriving via plush jetpack (presumably).

Monday Update: What’s New for 8/13/14

Original-Sin-7-Cover-335df-1Ahoy! It’s Monday, and that can only mean one thing: It’s time for a sneak peek at all the wonderful new things headed to our store this coming Wednesday! That’s the only thing Monday can mean, right? Marvel’s got some more Original Sin for us, Batman gets back to normal post Zero Year, there’s some new X-Men figures, new Mad magazine, and much, much more. Here’s the Monday Update.

The spotlight this week goes to the penultimate issue of Marvel’s big murder mystery event: Original Sin. It’s been quite an interesting ride thus far, but it’s about time we found out what really happened! Who killed the Watcher? What will Nick Fury’s ultimate fate be? Who will take over his job? But that’s not all. there’s also several Original Sin tie-ins to accompany the main issue. This week’s tie-ins are Amazing Spider-Man #5, Deadpool #33, and Fantastic Four #8. That’s a lot of Original Sin!

Marvel’s got more for us than just Original Sin for us this week. First up, Inhuman #3 makes its long delayed debut. All these new Inhumans are interesting, but what can we learn from the history of an ancient group? Then, Part 3 of “No End in sight” arrives in Nova Special #1. Nova joins Iron Man and the Uncanny X-Men on an intergalactic adventure. Good times will be had by all. Finally, the future Brotherhood takes one last swing at killing the All New X-Men. It’s been working out so well for them thus far, how could this last attempt possibly fail?

Over in the DC Universe, Zero Year is over, so it’s time to check in with the present day Batman stuff. The events of Batman Eternal are getting pretty crazy, and in the midst of all that, Batman has to track down a killer who has been on the loose for entirely too long. Don’t miss the action in Batman #34. Next, tension continues to mount between the Joker’s Daughter and Harley Quinn, but with the team trapped in russia, there isn’t really time for them to kill one another. Or is there? Find out in New Suicide Squad #2. Finally, Doomed continues in Superman/Wonder Woman #11. Can Diana hold back the forces of Brainiac? I should hope so, I mean, she is the God of War…

Meanwhile, some X-Men Legends 6 inch figures are on the way, a fresh set of WWE figures are coming in, MAD Magazine #529 arrives, and a Deadpool Basketball Jersey will be available for you to play ball in while making sarcastic comments.
