It’s Wednesday!!! World Series is going on, Tim Miller quit Deadpool 2 (more coming on that), everyone is psyched for The Walking Dead……………Oh yeah! You’re here for comic book releases, huh? Well, you’ll get them. But first, don’t forget that The Nerdery is doing another fundraiser. A fan asked a while back, what would it take to get us to do an episode in all drag. We’ve answered. If we meet our goal by Halloween, we will do a Halloween Drag episode. After Halloween the goal will increase. Want to help? CLICK HERE

It’s that time of the week again. Time to get to your local comic book store and feed the addiction that we all love.

The August sales numbers are out and DC has strengthened their game, taking 26 out of the top 30 individual slots. Marvel stole three and Image robbed DC of one. DC’s Harley Quinn #1 took first, All-Star Batman #1 took second it quantity and first in dollar sales, and Suicide Squad #1 took third. While Marvel’s Darth Vader Vol. 3 took the top spot in graphic novel sales, DC still snuck out of August with half of the top ten trades, using  a new special HC edition of The Killing Joke to lock down the #2 slot. We expect to see Postal climbing up the ranks for the month of September and October. Just last week, Image announced that it will be adapted into a Hulu television series. So catch up on that while you can! (Click here to read more)

Anyway, I digress…..

It’s another exciting day for readers as publishers are laying out a little of everything for us. Mechanism, Civil War II, Superman, Aquaman, Horizon, Zombie Tramp and so much more are available for the picking.

Unfortunately our sponsor Toxic City Comics has temporarily closed down for a little while. But, our friends at All Star Comics and Games are still in Baytown doing well.

This past week on the show, we all reviewed Animosity #1 and it was a runaway hit. Scoring almost all 5’s, it got us excited to see #2 release today and expect good reviews. One of our favorite publisher’s 451 Media drops NVRLND #2 and we’re stoked! Civil War II and Rebirth are still going strong and Dark Horse and Image are releasing a flood of collected trades. So get down to see our friends at All Star Comics and get your books while you can!

It’s that time of the week again. More comics, less money, more angry wifes and girlfriends. Oh well, they’ll still love us tomorrow (I hope). The Nerdery favorites Overground Comics and 451 Media present their latest offerings this week (can you feel the excitement). DC’s Rebirth continues it’s party with continued domination over the racks. Meanwhile, Marvel’s Civil War II seems to have fallen asleep somewhere. Marvel proceeds with plenty of tie-ins, but with no central story it’ll be hard to glue it all together. Image is on a roll with the much anticipated Eclipse #1, the top rated Beauty #10, and the unstoppable stampede that is the Top Cow imprint.

So waste no time getting these or you’ll miss out.

The numbers for July comic book sales are out, and DC took the month with fury. DC’s Justice League #1, Justice League Rebirth #1, and Batman #2 took 1st, 2nd, and 3rd respectively. Totaling in holding 8 of the top 10 comic books sold, and 24 of the top 30. DC’s drop in release quantity as Harley Quinn’s Greatest Hits TP and Batman: The Killing Joke Special Edition Hardcover peaking at 2nd and 3rd, and DC not representing anywhere else higher than 15th. On the other side of the fence, Marvel’s Graphic Novels peaked no higher than 4th with Star Wars: Obi-Wan and Anakin TP. The hottest thing in July for Graphic Novels was Monstress Vol 1 TP from Image who tied Marvel with 4 out of the top ten novels.

Anywho, the biggest thing The Nerdery is excited about this week is Eden’s Fall from Top Cow. The major crossover in Top Cow’s history, Eden’s Fall is a crossover of three Top Rated Titles; Think Tank, The Tithe, and Postal. Bryan Hill and Matt Hawkins are co-authoring the mini series. We are definitely expecting to crank it up to 11 on this one.

ENOUGH TALK!

It’s that time of the week again. It’s time to get to our local comic book shop and get our fix. Marvel’s Civil War II is going strong and is extending to the far reaches of the Marvel Universe. Meanwhile, DC’s Rebirth is still the hottest comic trend going on right now. With almost half of DC titles being renumbered and characters revamped, they’re on the right track to recover from the DCYOU. Top Cow’s Mechanism #2 drops today and we expect this to turn into a Top Rated Title as soon as eligible.

ENOUGH CHIT CHAT!

Civil War II is back in full swing this week with a ton of tie-ins. Four more books from the stellar Overground Comics will definitely put some pep into your week. DC finally brings us the Suicide Squad and Supergirl Rebirth #1’s. The incredibly written Lucas Stand releases it’s third issue as well.

There’s rarely a bad week to be a comic reader. No matter what you read, there’s generally a great book for you releasing every week. This week, however, is an incredible week. Don’t miss your chance to get these fantastic stories.

There’s a lot of discussion, arguments, and controversy surrounding the world of comic books and their films as of late. Not to fret, we’ll definitely discuss that, just not in this article. Right now, we’re going to talk about the size and repercussions of Civil War II and Rebirth. Civil War II had a pretty large build up and it seems to me, that it hasn’t really led to anything earth-shattering or much more than a tremor. Outside of a few characters deaths (which I’m sure will be short-lived [HA!}) the “epic fight” hasn’t been much more than a spat between estranged lovers.

On the other side of street in the Superman titles alone Rebirth has killed one Superman, brought back the Superman from the early 90’s with a wife and son, made the son a Superman of sorts, resurrected Doomsday (a GOOD Doomsday), returned The Eradicator to the pages, and brought about a Chinese Superman. And that is just the tip of the iceberg for the DC universe.

Maybe I’m biased, but it doesn’t seem like Civil War II is living up to its predecessor’s name.

Spider-Man/Deadpool has made the final turn of its ten issue publishing run with installment #8, and Old Man Logan continues The Last Ronin arc. DC fans, your second issue of The All-New Superman is here as well, and there’s so much more. So……

It’s time to raid the racks!!!!
