In case you missed it, during this past Sunday’s show we announced a limited shirt that is up for sale for $20+tx,S&H, and gave away a ton of loot. As of this morning we have officially reached 500 likes on Facebook. You all know what that means, IT’S GIVEAWAY TIME!! Tune in this Sunday to see if you won!!! If you haven’t liked us on Facebook, we will do another giveaway at 600 so make sure you don’t miss that one!!

All that being said, the numbers from January are out and will be published RIGHT HERE.

It’s never a bad week to be a comic reader but this week we here at The Nerdery have something to celebrate, THE RETURN OF THINK TANK!!!! 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.

Excuse me, I need to go get my copy.

Comics are one of those things that will spend weeks being pretty good, and then on week will drop a figurative piano of greatness on your head. Call this piano week. JLA V Power Rangers, JLA Rebirth #1, three new true believers issues, Hal Jordan, Clark Kent, Jessica Jones, Kingpin and top it all off with Moonshine, and that’s a helluva week.

Buckle up kiddos, it’s going to be an awesome week.

Those who watch or listen to the show are well aware that I’m a big DC fan. For those that don’t, yes I prefer DC over Marvel. Before you pick up your pitchforks or light your torches, I’ll explain in article upcoming. That being said, currently one of the reasons is the price. The market standard is right about $3.99 a book. That price covering the majority of Marvel, Dark Horse, Image and other publisher’s issues. DC has been rebelling against that for some time with a $2.99 cover price on most of their individual issues. Of course, these prices are not set in stone and some books go for as high as $9.99 on the cover however, usually these books are bigger, crossovers, or Prestige format. DC has been keeping their price down for quite some time with a great deal of success. However, Marvel has been putting digital comic codes in their comics for some time while DC did not. DC will be targeting that niche market with these titles along with increasing the cover prices.

Have no fear, the standard DC titles that we all know and love will remain at their normal $2.99 price tag for the current time. So Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman fans have nothing to worry about.

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!!!

Now that the Presidential Election is over, we can get back to the things we love, comics. Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m dying to know what happened to Hal Jordan and Sinestro in that explosion of will. Invinsible Iron Man #1’s cover gives us a Riri Williams as Ironheart, that should be a good read. Don’t forget to go visit our friends over at Captain Jacks E-lixers and All Star Comics!

Marvel and DC are still duking it out to see who will take the biggest sales numbers for July. Civil War II and Rebirth are two major events that seem to have opposite intentions for their respective publishers. The events also seem to be having an opposite effect from what was originally intended. Civil War II was meant to throw utter chaos into the Marvel Universe. Instead, it seems to be cleaning house. Divided characters, deaths, and clear definitions are drawing pretty dark lines for the fans to distinguish this from that. On the other side of the fence, DC’s Rebirth planned to clean up the New 52, DC You, and Pre-New 52 continuities and make everything as streamlined as a multiverse can get. What DC is actually doing is making a total mess of everything. While it is entertaining, it is very frustrating and confusing with 3+ Supermen, 2 Flashes and who knows what’s going on with Aquaman.

Anyhow, Postal Volume 3 has officially begun!!!  excuse me………..

I must be going now……

I’ve got to raid the racks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s no secret that I’m a huge Superman fan. In 78 years of constant publication, Superman has experienced everything. From childhood to old age, from life to death and back again, from distant planets and universes to the bleed of the multiverse. He’s been a Soviet mascot, a Union soldier in the American Civil War, he’s faced off against the Avengers and worked along side them, he’s been Batman, he’s been Tarzan, he’s saved all of existance, and he’s brought it to it’s knees. In the time that fan’s have been reading about his adventures he’s become more than a comic book character, he’s become a friend, a moral compass and a role model. It’s a hard task to pick only five stories that exemplify Superman in all his aspects, but if I were introducing someone to Superman, these would be the five I would put in their lap.

Civil War II and Rebirth are still going at it strong. Marvel dominated for the month of June with 40.08% of the market. DC came in second with 29.93%, and Image has their 7.88% market share in a kung fu grip. However, DC is grabbing up unit sales and is rapidly becoming a threat to Marvel with only a 12.48% difference in units sold! Not surprising is the fact that seven of the top ten issues in June, were DC titles. DC also has a firm grip on trade paper backs for June, taking five out of the top ten TPB’s for the month. In a world where Marvel has dominated for the past few years, DC seems to be on track to dethrone the reigning king.

This week, the publishers are giving us a shining example of what comics have to offer. No matter what you’re into, there’s a book out there for you. There’s quite a few out there for me. So…………

Well, tomorrow is my birthday and I’ll be treating myself to a great deal of comics. Fantastic Four has been viewed by critics and has received some pretty negative comments. On the flip side of the same coin, the new Deadpool trailer is out and people are going crazy. If you haven’t seen it, go to The Flash News at the top of the screen and get your fill.
