This past week has been amazing. Red Dog #4, Eclipse #7, and so much more just days after Houston’s Comicpalooza (more on that to come). After a slight delay, DC’s Button series continues, and rumor has it that it will lead up to the Countdown to Doomsday event. Looks like DC is working a pretty awesome long game. After a huge delay, Justice League VS Mighty Morphin Power Rangers continues with issue #4 (it’s about time). Meanwhile, Image celebrates its 25th anniversary and Spawn’s Anniversary with reprints of Spawn #1 and an array of Spawn variant covers for other titles. Marvel continues their Secret Empire with issue #2 and drops a new Luke Cage #1 and Generation X #1.

It’s never a bad week to be a comic book reader.

It’s the best week of the year to be a comic book fan. If you aren’t, now is the time to become one. This Saturday is FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!!!!! That’s right, free comic books. Come see The Nerdery at All Star Comics and Games in Baytown, TX and Dimensions Comics in Seabrook, TX.

It’s an awesome week regardless of FCBD. Marvel is releasing an onslaught of #1’s and Secret Empire drops its #1 as well. DC’s The Button saga continues with Batman #22. 451Media’s Stained has already broken the publisher’s record for pre-orders and stock orders. Having read it, you’re not going to want to miss this amazing title.

Come see the 451Media crew at Comicpalooza NEXT WEEK!!!! (Click the link on the left hand side of the screen to get your tickets!!!)

It’s a relatively sleepy week for readers. What few events that are currently happening, don’t have any direct issues out this week. Cheer up though, Ben Reilly is coming back, Comicpalooza is just around the corner and GoGames360 is almost here!!

Yes, DC will be raising prices on a few titles (full write up coming) but they will be adding digital codes in those books. So I don’t expect a drop in sales. Marvel has been doing just that for years to great success.

I seem to be rambling…………..

Let’s go RAID THE RACKS!!!

The extremely popular Phoenix Comicon has been a staple for Arizona comic book fans since 2002 and has always been a place that fans and volunteers feel welcomed. Just like the majority of conventions around the world, people may volunteer to work for free (or paid depending on state labor laws) and be able to attend the convention when they’re not occupied with their duties. However, this year will be different for the Arizona convention. Volunteers will be required to join the Blue Ribbon Army. Memberships range from $20-$100 and DO NOT guarantee that you will be able to volunteer at Phoenix Comicon. This turn of events has hopeful participants up in arms. This is the first time anyone has heard of a volunteer having to pay to volunteer!
Naturally this has caused quite a stir in the convention community.
