“NO POCALYPSE” Slightly Delays New Comics

AGE OF SNOWPOCALYPSE!
Winter Storm Juno didn’t deliver the historic snow totals predicted by the now-embarrassed weather people, but it did deliver enough in certain places to delay our weekly New Comic Shipment. Normally we receive the shipment on Tuesday, and have the whole day (and night) to count all the comics and arrange them for Wednesday’s New Comic Day. This week however, we will (hopefully) get the new comics on WEDNESDAY, and will need some time to count everything and put everything out before we are 100% ready for New Comic Day shoppers (especially since we don’t even know what time the shipment will even get here). We will do everything we can to get everything up and ready to go as soon as possible, but if you show up too early, we will probably not be ready yet. Luckily, we are open until 10pm every Wednesday!

01) BATMAN #38 (with FLASH-75 Variant)

BATMAN ON TOP!
Now that the NO-POCALYPE is over, we can turn our attention to this week’s New Comics, and January’s Final New Comic Day is a BIG one! FUNNYBOOKS’ Top Title this week is DC’s BATMAN #38, which continues the popular “BATMAN Endgame” storyline and is available with a standard cover by Greg Capullo, and a “Flash-75th Anniversary” Variant Cover. Other FLASH-75 Variants can be found on today’s AQUAMAN #38, CATWOMAN #38, HARLEY QUINN #14, JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #38, SINESTRO #9 and… The FLASH #38! Also New from DC this week check out the new DEATHSTROKE #4, and the new SECRET ORIGINS #9, with origin stories for SWAMP THING (written by Charles Soule), POWER GIRL and JOHN STEWART (the GREEN LANTERN, not the Daily Show host).

GROOT DANCES AGAIN!
Marvel doesn’t slam the shelves quite like last week, but the House of Ideas certainly has some goodies to offer this week including a NEW DANCING GROOT, that — Unlike the DANCING GROOT POP-VINYL figure — is electronic, and actually dances to that Michael Jackson song! Comic book-wise, Marvel fans will want to check-out the New SPIDER-MAN 2099 #8 (a SPIDER-VERSE tie-in), THOR #4, NEW AVENGERS #29 and UNCANNY AVENGERS #1 (which spins out of the AXIS finale, and assembles an all-new UNCANNY team of AVENGERS).

IMAGEPOKALYPSE
The snowstorm may not have delivered as forecasted this week, but Image Comics delivers a massive blast of comics with a long list of titles including Jonathan “EAST OF WEST, MANHATTAN PROJECTS” Hickman’s DYING AND THE DEAD #1, and Kelly Sue Deconnick’s BITCH PLANET #2. Also look for a couple of key graphic novels including the second BLACK SCIENCE Graphic Novel and the new OUTCAST Volume 1 Graphic Novel (which collects the first 6 issues of Robert “WALKING DEAD” Kirkman’s new horror series for only $10). Plus, check out a new “Image printing” of Ed Brubaker’s CRIMINAL Volume 1 Graphic Novel (CRIMINAL was formerly published by Marvel Icon), and the new CASANOVA #1 (which brings Matt Fraction’s Marvel Icon property to its new home at Image).

STAR MORES!
Marvel’s STAR WARS #1 may have come and gone (actually, we still have copies of #1 on the shelves), but Marvel’s STAR WARS launch has only just begun. STAR WARS #2 will hit the shelves NEXT WEEK (February 4th), and the following week (February 11th) look for the new DARTH VADER #1. Once again, FUNNYBOOKS will be getting a full spread of covers for this big debut issue. Stop by and reserve your DARTH VADER #1 variants this week!

NE W THIS YEAR!
It’s more than a New Comic Day at FUNNYBOOKS today, It’s the FIRST New Comic Day of an All-New, New Comic YEAR!!! PLUS… Since hardly anything came-out last week, (on the New Years Eve New Comic Day), today is also the first LEGIT New Comic Day in TWO weeks! AND… SInce the last TWO Wednesdays were Christmas Eve and New Years Eve (respectively), this will be the first 12-HOUR-LONG New Comic Day in THREE WEEKS! And even though we’ve enjoyed the change of routine, I think we’re all looking forward to getting back to our regularly scheduled Comic Book Store! … 2015 Here we go!

THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN TITLES AT FUNNYBOOKS!
01-tie) ANT-MAN #1 (with Skottie Young Variant)
01-tie) AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #12 (Spider-Verse)
03) FADE-OUT #4 (Image, Ed Brubaker)
04) BATMAN ETERNAL #40 (Weekly)

07-tie) GREEN LANTERN #38 (with FLASH Variant)
07-tie) OPERATION SIN #1 (of 5) (Agent Carter)
07-tie) NEW 52 FUTURES END #36 (Weekly)

NEW THIS WEEK!
It’s not a HUGE New Comic Week, but there are certainly enough New Comics & Stuff hitting the shelves this week to make a trip to FUNNYBOOKS worthwhile, including the long-awaited DANCING GROOT POP VINYL FIGURE (!) and the debut of Marvel’s All-New ANT-MAN Comic (with Marvel’s ANT-MAN Movie hitting theaters this summer (on July 17th), ANT MAN #1 is sure to be one popular new comic!) Today’s ANT MAN #1 is available with a standard cover by Mark Brooks, and with a special Skottie Young “baby” variant cover. Tying with ANT-MAN #1 for our TOP SPOT this week is Dan Slott’s AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #12, which amps-up the Spider-Verse storyline, while Image Comics’ snags our #3 spot this week with Ed Brubaker’s FADE OUT #4. DC’s weekly BATMAN ETERNAL #40 sits at #4 on our TOP TITLE LIST this week, and Marvel’s WOLVERINES #1 (by writer Charles Soule and artist Nick Bradshaw) wraps-up our top five! Speaking of WOLVERINE, look for the 144-page DEATH OF WOLVERINE DELUXE HARD COVER today (and for only $25). It’s also week one for DC’s FLASH 75th ANNIVERSARY Variant cover month and you can find FLASH cover choices on this week’s DETECTIVE, GREEN LANTERN, and ACTION COMICS. And, if you saw Marvel’s AGENT CARTER TV series premiere last night, you’ll probably want to check-out the new OPERATION SIN #1 (of 5), which tells an untold Marvel story from the 1950’s starring Peggy Carter and Howard Stark!

RESOLVE TO READ!
FUNNYBOOKS’ 2015 NEW YEARS STEVE SALE is less than a week old and already it’s reminding us why last year it was the most popular of all of FUNNYBOOKS many BIG Annual Sales. NEW YEARS STEVE offers everyone the opportunity to make a resolution to read something NEW in 2015, and helps you keep that resolution by offering generous discounts on EVERY volume in the series you choose to read ALL YEAR LONG (including 25%-OFF Volume ONE). FUNNYBOOKS is well-stocked with all the Best Volume Ones in the Biz, and we are expecting a lot of attention to fall on Graphic Novels like WALKING DEAD, SAGA, PREACHER, BATMAN (N52), MS. MARVEL, DEADPOOL (NOW), MANHATTAN PROJECTS, INVINCIBLE, SANDMAN, FABLES, AMERICAN VAMPIRE, THE BOYS, LOCKE & KEY, and SIN CITY (and that’s just off of the top of my head!). It’s also a great time to consider popular Manga runs like ATTACK ON TITAN and DEADMAN WONDERLAND, or any other Volume ONE in our thoughtfully-stocked manga section. Once you choose your Volume ONE, we will put your name up on the FUNNYBOOKS’ “Wall of Resolutions,” which is already well on it’s way (you can check it out for yourself during your visit to FUNNYBOOKS this week).

That’s all for now! Hope 2 C U @ FUNNYBOOKS! – Funny Steve

FIFTH WEDNESDAY ON NEW YEARS EVE!

HAPPY 5th WEDNESDAY!
It’s the final day of 2014, and it’s only fitting that this Huge Pop-Culture Year end on a Fabulous FIFTH WEDNESDAY NEW COMIC BOOK DAY AT FUNNYBOOKS, because 2014 has really had it all — including lots of 5th Wednesdays! If you still don’t know what 5th WEDNESDAY is all about, it’s easy… just stop by FUNNYBOOKS on 5th Wednesday and wish us a “Happy 5th Wednesday,” and you will receive 15%-OFF any and all of this week’s New Comics. Of course, this week’s “New This Week” list is a little lighter than usual — due in part to the holiday, and also thanks to last week’s “Mega-Double-Week” — but it’s still going to be the most exciting 5th Wednesday of the year because it’s also NEW YEARS EVE!!!

JOIN US FOR THE WINTER CLASSIC ON NEW YEARS DAY!
Looking for something to do on New Years Day? FUNNYBOOKS will kick off 2015 in style with our Annual WINTER CLASSIC Celebration and Sale on New Years Day — And YOU are invited! We will open our doors (actually, it’s just one door) at 10am on January 1st 2015 (!) and will be open until 8pm with a fabulous storewide sale throughout the day (the details are secret, but we promise you it will be big!). Along with the Sale and Celebration, we will be offering complimentary coffee, hot chocolate and cookies (while they last) and will also have some giveaways throughout the day (including one of those “guess how many things are in this container” games, with the winner receiving a $100 gift certificate to FUNNYBOOKS!) The final details of the sale will be revealed on Facebook, Twitter and at funnyrama.com on Thursday Morning — the FIRST DAY OF 2015!!! #WOOHOO!

NEW YEARS STEVE RETURNS!
The FUNNYBOOKS’ WINTER CLASSIC CELEBRATION also means it’s time for FUNNYBOOKS’ ANNUAL NEW YEARS STEVE SALE which, last year (2014), was our most popular sale of the entire year! NEW YEARS STEVE offers everyone a chance to make a resolution to read something NEW that they’ve never read before, by offering a discount of 25%-OFF ALL Volume ONE Graphic Novels in the entire store (the sale also includes Manga and other volume ONE books). On top of the 25%-OFF Volume ONE, we will throw in a special voucher to come back for Volume TWO at 20%-OFF, and Volumes THREE and UP at 15%-OFF (even if there are 22 Volumes in the series like WALKING DEAD!). The discount voucher is good for the ENTIRE YEAR of 2015! Plus, when you purchase a volume ONE, we will put your name up on the wall (that’s probably the real reason NEW YEARS STEVE is our most popular sale!)! Resolve to Read something you’ve always wanted to in 2015 with NEW YEARS STEVE!

LAST YEARS NEW YEARS STEVE DEALS EXTENDED ONE WEEK!
Speaking of which… If you purchased a Graphic Novel as part of New Years Steve 2014, we are extending last year’s deal thru this Sunday so that you can stop by for the Winter Classic, or anytime before Monday, to get all your follow-up volumes with your NEW YEARS STEVE 2014 discount voucher (you don’t need the voucher, we have a record of your purchase).

JANUARY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU
In two weeks (on Wednesday, January 14th) FUNNYBOOKS will host “STAR WARS DAY” to celebrate the arrival of the highly anticipated All-New STAR WARS #1 Comic Book from Marvel Comics. FUNNYBOOKS will open up PRE-reserves for ALL STAR WARS Comics and Variants on New Years Day during the WINTER CLASSIC Celebration. If you can’t make it to FUNNYBOOKS on New Years Day, we can take your reserve the next time you stop by (note: supplies may be limited on some variant covers).

FREQUENT FUNNYCARD LAUNCHES!
In 2015 FUNNYBOOKS will introduce a discount system for everyone who gets their New Comics at their Friendly Neighborhood FUNNYBOOKS. The FREQUENT FUNNYCARD will give you 10%-OFF your weekly comics, every week, NO STRINGS ATTACHED! NO RESERVES REQUIRED! FREQUENT FUNNYCARDS will be handed out like candy during the FUNNYBOOKS WINTER CLASSIC. Ask for yours and start saving 10% on all your comics beginning next week on January 7th. The First New Comic Day of 2015! #ANTMAN
