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!!!)

Yeah I know, I missed last week. Well, not to worry. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to see last week’s releases.

This week we have a lot to be grateful for, it’s like Christmas. Reprints, trades and more proliferate the racks. The Beauty, Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Core, and Dollface just to name a few. Not to mention the fact that Action Comics is pushing close to issue #1000. That issue will almost assuredly be one bear of a book. Well, I’ve wasted enough of your time……

I don’t know about all of you, but I’m stoked for RED DOG #3. Don’t believe me, READ THIS. 451Media has set the trend to tell stories that you can’t predict, and it’s awesome. JL/MMPR is out as is a ton of Venomized covers for Marvel. I can’t be upset when the racks are flooded with this much awesome.

Let’s quit wasting time and…….

This is by far the hardest review to write that I have ever done. For the sake of doing this book justice, I feel it necessary to delve into the complexity of events that unfold within the issue. But as a fan, I feel that I am required to refrain from issuing any spoilers. Just keep that in mind as you read.

Being on the list for The Nerdery’s Top Rated Publishers is no easy feat. To be considered, a publisher must publish multiple titles and each issue reviewed by The Nerdery must be rated 4+ or higher. Not only has 451Media done this, they’ve done it with a perfect score, the only publisher to do so. Top Rated Publisher is not a badge that a publisher can expect to hold forever. However, 451Media has been setting the bar pretty high for the rest of the comic book industry. While DC and Marvel are content with setting up for the next “Scooby Doo style” scrape, 451Media doesn’t settle for just having  you on the edge of your seat. The outstanding publisher provides an amalgamation of emotions that has no rival. Each title is flush with handcrafted perfection taking you for a journey through elation, terror, suspense, sorrow, remorse and anger.

Red Dog003_04No comic issue is a better example of this than Red Dog #3. Issue #2 closed with Kyle’s dog bots landing him and themselves in serious trouble. With the incredible grace, issue #3 opens to the colony’s council deciding the fate of the beloved canine androids.

I would love to go into further plot detail, but that would ruin the book for you. The story moves along with the intensity increasing with each panel, and personally, this is the best written book I am currently reading. The art is absolutely amazing and the colors are tailor-fit to the emotion on every page. The crew of Red Dog are bursting with talent in every aspect of comic book production. This one of the easiest books I’ve ever had to rate

CRANK IT UP TO 11!!!

451Media’s motto is “Imagination On Fire”, it’s apparent that they truly live by that. The plot twists are never ending and are original in ways that can’t be explained with words. Having read a mountain of their comics, they’ve gained a serious lifetime reader.

It’s safe to say that 451 has earned this….

IF YOU’RE NOT READING 451, YOU SUCK!!!

One of the most thought provoking comics that has ever come through the show makes it’s return!! Don’t miss it. The Nerdery’s Best Writer winner Matt Hawkins brings back the character that is a literal oxymoron for a new set of internal and external conflicts that, no doubt, will continue to shock and awe.

With the large amount of trades released today, the book that is perfect for you probably released today. Don’t sit on the fence on whether or not you’ll enjoy it, pull the trigger and be amazed.
