It’s almost Halloween! Are you feeling spooky? We’ve got a haunting selection of new comics, cool toys, and no shortage of halloween inspired puns. Marvel continues to beat the corpse of Wolverine with more Death of Wolverine tie-ins, Godzilla gets the minimate treatment, DC gives us some week 5 Annuals, Harley stinks up the joint, and much, much more. Hold your nose, because here comes the Monday Update.
The spotlight this week goes to Harley Quinn Annual #1. This issue comes poly-bagged, because it’s a scratch and sniff issue! Actually, there’s no scratching required, so it’s just a sniff book. It literally stinks more than every other book on the shelves! Visit Harley at her stately Coney Island home and smell what she smells every day. Don’t miss this one of a kind book!
Not every DC title this week stinks. In fact, it’s just the HArley. The other stuff is printed on regular non-smelly paper. First up, it’s the 5th shipping week of the month, and DC is hitting us with 3 annuals (not including Harley Quinn). Those are Justice League Dark Annual #2, Justice League United Annual #1, and Swamp Thing Annual #3. Then, Godhead continues in Sinestro #6. The Green Lantern Corps are on the ropes, so it’s the Sinestro Corps to the rescue! Of course, Sinestro has been known to have less than savory motivations, so things could get interesting. Finally, we have the grand finale to Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang’s run on Wonder Woman. It’s all been leading to this. First Born vs. Wonder Woman. Things are going to get bloody. Don’t miss Wonder Woman #35.
Over in the Marvel Universe, we’ve got plenty of Axis and Death of Wolverine to keep you busy. First up, there’s two Axis tie-ins with Axis: Carnage #1, and Axis: Revolutions #1. Carnage is fairly self explanatory, so if you want more CArnage, this is the book for you. Revolutions gives you a more comprehensive look at the battles that took place in the first few issues of Axis. Finally, he may be dead, but his books are doing just fine! This week sees the release of 3 Death of Wolverine tie-ins, which are Death of Wolverine: Deadpool & Captain America #1, Death of Wolverine: The Logan Legacy #3, and Wolverine and the X-Men #11. Clearly, Logan touched the lives of many of the folks in the MArvel Universe, and over the next few months, we’re going to hear from every single one of them!
Meanwhile, there’s some Godzilla minimates smashing their way into the store, Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland #2 shows up, and Marvel gives us all a new Deathlok solo series starting this week! Plus, Sonic the Hedgehog gets a makeover in Sonic Boom #1, MArvel’s 75th Anniversary Celebration #1 arrives, and the new Diamond Previews catalog shows up to provide a glimpse into the future of awesome comics and comic related items!
That’s not all though, there’s a ton of other stuff we just don’t have the time to talk about in detail here. That’s why we’re providing you with the Complete Diamond list, conveniently located at the bottom of this post. Be careful though, because some of these items may not actually show up. Be sure to check with us first for availability. As always, everything you see here will not be available until Wednesday, October 29th.
What will you be reading this week? Will Meru finish her south american training in Mind MGMT #27? Will The Shadow and Margo stop the doomsday clock in time in The Shadow: Midnight in Moscow #5? If you have a jack-o-lantren named Steve, is it a steve-o-lantern? Let us know on our Facebook page.
See you at the store, and here’s the list.
