Fear And Loathing in Las Vegas, the end of The Darkseid War, an all new Captain America, and the start of DC’s REBIRTH all dropping today?!?! Well, I don’t have to tell you how cool that is. But, I do want to point out some things you won’t want to miss in all the commotion between DC and Marvel. Symmetry Vol. 1 also drops today. Smaller publishers determine whether or not to continue a title based on how many trades are sold. SO BUY SYMMETRY!!!!! You won’t regret it. Well, those are the highlights for the week, there’s a ton more going on, of course. But let’s not waste time. We gotta get to the racks so we can actually get our books before they’re gone!

Anime & Manga

So this story begins with you getting lucky and receiving a pass to go to the most prestige’s high school in the entire country. What could be better? This place will get you better job offers, just for having gone there. Luck is finally on your side. You’re feeling a little dizzy when you wake up; you’re in a strange room, iron plates on the windows, what happened? You see a note that says to go to the gym and you’re late. When you arrive you find out that the school you have been so blessed to go to has a problem. The principal is a black and white, evil teddy bear. The only way to graduate is to kill your fellow class mates and get away with it. Sound like a bad dream right? Well this is the story behind Danganronpa. This anime is a twisted…

Lucifer,_title

The season finale was for Lucifer was a few weeks ago. If you didn’t see it, I feel sorry for you. It was a fantastic series through and through, and it’s no surprise that it has been green lit for a second season. Much to the disappointment of the hate group, One Million Moms, Lucifer has been met with smashing success as millions tune in each week. The production crew made sure to throw everything but the kitchen sink into the series, but have done so with style and class. Offering the depth of a star-studded intellectual drama movie, the laughs of a James Franco/Seth Rogen feature, as much action as the typical Arnold movie, and the AWW factor of a puppy and kitten cuddling, there’s no reason this series can’t last.

Captain America: Civil War has been out almost a week, and Civil War has been getting rave reviews all over. Everyone is talking about Captain America. In just over two weeks, FOX will release the next chapter in the X-Men franchise. So where’s the buzz?

Apocalypse was one of the X-Men’s greatest enemies. No doubt, this should be the most epic film in the franchise. So, why aren’t people excited to see the immortal mutant on screen? While Deadpool boasted a measly $58M budget, X-Men: Apocalypse is reported to have a monstrous budget of $234M. We can all agree that Deadpool was an incredible credit to our obsession. What can you buy for four times the price? The public doesn’t seem too interested in the answer. FOX has kept up with their rivals every step of the way. Behind the scenes photos “leaked” on social media, teaser trailer releases, even major press. So why might this movie fall off the nerd radar for the year?

We’re excited to meet and greet out listeners and readers, and urge you to take advantage of that! We’ll be there from open till the comics are GONE! For those of you wondering what comics are being released for FCBD, I’ve given you a list down below. I know that for #WoW I give you guys some cover photos, so I did it again here.

FCBD is a day for comic fans to celebrate every first Saturday in May. It is exactly what it sounds like. Comic book publishers print one or two books specifically for FCBD. You walk into your local comic book store, pick out what books you want (some retailers set a limit), and you get those books FOR FREE. It really doesn’t get much easier.

If you’ve ever wanted to get into comics, like comics but don’t want to spend any money, you officially have no excuse. So, get down to  Toxic City Comics this Saturday, get some free comics, and hang out with us!!!!!
