MARVEL
• FUNNYBOOKS’ TOP TITLE this week is Marvel’s ORIGINAL SIN #7 (of 8). Can’t wait to read it! • This week’s ORIGINAL SIN tie-ins include AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #5, FANTASTIC FOUR #8, and DEADPOOL #33. • For more “Merc with a Mouth” pick-up today’s DEADPOOL DRACULA’S GAUNTLET #6 (of 7) or the DEADPOOL BY DANIEL WAY COMPLETE COLLECTION Vol. 4 Graphic Novel. • Today’s NOVA SPECIAL concludes the UNCANNY X-MEN/IRON MAN/NOVA 3-Part crossover – “No end in sight,” and completes the 3-cover image. * CAPTAIN AMERICA #23 is part 2 of “Tomorrow Soldier” could this be the end for Steve Rogers as CAPTAIN AMERICA? • GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY fans can pick-up new GUARDIANS Heroclix booster boxes today, the GROOT Pop-Vinyl (back in stock), and the cool new G.O.T.G. poster by Alex Ross • Speaking of Alex Ross… check out the artist’s great green cover on today’s HULK #5. • AMAZING X-MEN #10 continues the ALPHA FLIGHT / WENDIGO storyline. • Today’s INHUMAN #3 wraps-up the new series’ first story arc illustrated by Joe “Mad” Madureira. • THUNDERBOLTS #29 is part three of “PUNISHER vs. The THUNDERBOLTS”. • “One Month To Die” continues in today’s WOLVERINE #11 and sets-up next months “Death of WOLVERINE.”

DC
DC’s “SELFIE MONTH” continues this week with 6 new SELFIE Variants (BATMAN #34, BATGIRL #34, GREEN LANTERN CORPS #34, HARLEY QUINN #9 (both covers by Amanda Conner), SUPERMAN / WONDER WOMAN #11 (a “Doomed” tie-in), and JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED #4 (which also has a CANADA Variant). • Now that ZERO-YEAR has ended, BATMAN #34 (with that SELFIE Variant we mentioned) is guest-illustrated by Matteo “Black Science” Scalera, and sets-up an all-new BATMAN story. • With JOKER’S DAUGHTER, HARLEY QUINN and DEATHSTROKE all on the cover of NEW SUICIDE SQUAD #2, how can you NOT check it out? (and FUNNYBOOKS still has first printings of the sold-out SUICIDE SQUAD #1 on the shelves for cover price. • BIRDS OF PREY #34 also features the SUICIDE SQUAD • Today’s GREEN LANTERN “Wrath of the First Lantern” Graphic Novel collects the massive 16-issue crossover storyline originally presented in issues #17-20 of all four New52 Green Lantern titles. • Geoff Johns and Gary Frank’s BATMAN: EARTH ONE is finally available in Soft Cover today. • Garth Ennis’ PREACHER Vol. 5 GN (New Edition) collects issues #41-54 of the FUNNYBOOKS FAVORITE DC/Vertigo series which is being made into an AMC Television series.

ALSO!
• WALKING DEAD #130 should be awesome considering how #129 ended! • Like last week’s HARBINGER OMEGAS #1, this week’s UNITY #10, ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #23, and ARMOR HUNTERS #3 (of 4) all have regular and “Valiantcraft” (resembling “Minecraft”) covers. • Image’s STARLIGHT #5 has two covers including one by Rob Liefeld! • Image / TopCow’s GENIUS title is weekly, so look for GENIUS #2 today. • Look for the first issue of a New GODZILLA title today as IDW’s GODZILLA CATACLYSM #1 arrives on the New COmic scene. • The “New” KIRK and SPOCK find themselves in the future where they meet the crew of DS9 in this week’s STAR TREK “ongoing” #36. • Fans of the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES can look forward to a new issue of the ongoing series (#37) along with a new issue of the all-ages TMNT NEW ANIMATED ADVENTURES (#14) this week. • Today’s TRANSFORMERS PRIMACY #1 presents the beginnings of the war between the AUTOBOTS and the DECEPTICONS.

HAPPY FIFTH WEDNESDAY! BATMAN THURSDAY!

TWO-DAY JULY WRAP-UP AT FUNNYBOOKS!
This Summer has been out of control when it comes to Comic Books and Pop Culture — and July is certainly holding its own. There’s all kinds of cool news and announcements coming out of the San Diego Comic Con, so there are a lot of new things to get stoked about, and this week FUNNYBOOKS has put together BACK-TO-BACK DAYS of exciting promotions to mark the end of July, and get things rolling ahead into August and GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY WEEKEND!

FUNNYBOOKS’ FIFTH WEDNESDAY!
It’s the 5th Wednesday of July and FUNNYBOOKS has turned the old, dreaded “skip week” into a celebration of the BONUS New Comic Day that having FIVE Wednesdays in a month creates. Included in the celebration is a FUNNYBOOKS-exclusive “5th WEDNESDAY” Discount on all of this week’s New Comics & Graphic Novels when you wish us a “Happy 5th Wednesday” during your visit to FUNNYBOOKS today for our trademark 12-HOUR NEW COMIC DAY (10am-10pm every Wednesday). This time around we are very happy to offer everyone a sweet summer 5th Wednesday Discount of 15%-OFF ANY and ALL Comics & Graphic Novels that are NEW THIS WEEK at FUNNYBOOKS, when you wish us a HAPPY 5th WEDNESDAY! Please note: The FUNNYBOOKS’ 5th WEDNESDAY DISCOUNT is good on Wednesday only. (NOTE: If you received this E-Mail too late, and have already been to FUNNYBOOKS on Wednesday for your New Comics, please bring in your receipt on your next visit and we will credit you back the discount).

DON’T MISS BATMAN’S BIRTHDAY BASH ON THURSDAY!
We promised back-to-back days of COMIC BOOK GOODNESS this week and after enjoying your 15%-OFF 5TH WEDNESDAY Discount on Wednesday, Thursday Night will be worth a return trip to FUNNYBOOKS as we celebrate the 75th Anniversary of BATMAN in FUNNYBOOKS style with our BATMAN 75th BIRTHDAY BASH! Join us at FUNNYBOOKS (inside and outside) Thursday Night at 7pm as we celebrate BATMAN’s 75th Birthday the FUNNYBOOKS WAY with FREE BATMAN paper masks, door prizes, raffles, and BATMAN COSPLAY (if you have it). We are very happy to announce a special appearance by the amazing HARLEY QUINN, who we met at TOY CON NJ (We’d tell you to bring your cameras for Photo ops but most of you use your phones now anyway). SURF’S UP BATMAN and ROBIN should also be on-hand for the BIG BAT BASH. Besides the giveaways, prizes and FUN… FUNNYBOOKS will offer 20%-OFF ANYTHING and EVERYTHING BATMAN-RELATED (New Comics, Back Issues, Graphic Novels, Action Figures, Statues and other stuff) to anyone wearing a BATMAN T-SHIRT, and 30%-OFF to anyone in a BATMAN-RELATED costume. FUNNYBOOKS will stay open late (probably until about 9pm) for the special BATMAN celebration!

NEW THIS WEEK!
It’s 5th WEDNESDAY (did you hear?) which always means a somewhat different than usual selection of New Comics & Stuff. Marvel and DC both have a lot to offer, but this week there’s a long list of great “other” titles (from the smaller guys) and — after laying low for a couple of weeks — IMAGE COMICS is back in a BIG way with new issues of popular titles like FATALE, EAST OF WEST, MANHATTAN PROJECTS, BLACK SCIENCE, COWL and Robert Kirkman’s OUTCAST, as well as the debut of an all-new Image series as Rick Remender’s LOW #1 hits the FUNNYBOOKS’ shelves.

BATMAN vs. DOCTOR WHO DAYS

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BATMAN!
BATMAN’s 75th BIRTHDAY Month celebration continues today with a BAT-Load of BATMAN, including SEVEN New BATMAN-75 variant covers, and a bunch of New BATMAN titles including the new BATMAN 66 #13, BATMAN BEYOND UNIVERSE #12, BATMAN ETERNAL (already on #16!), BATMAN AND ROBIN #33 (which picks-up where last week’s ROBIN RISES OMEGA left off — and has a BAT-75 Variant), and FUNNYBOOKS Top Title this week, Scott Snyder’s BATMAN #33 (which also has a BAT-75 Variant). We also have a FREE Batman comic book handout that’s pretty cool, and we can put all of this BAT-stuff in one of our nifty new BATMAN store bags for you. We’ve even received some pretty nifty BATMAN 75th Anniversary paper masks which we will attempt to save for next week when we host our OFFICIAL BATMAN 75th BIRTHDAY PARTY right here at FUNNYBOOKS (either Wednesday or Thursday night — probably at around 7pm). More details will be announced soon, but we can tell you that there will be COSPLAYING, so get your BAT-related costume ready to go!

IS THERE A DOCTOR WHO IN THE HOUSE?
DOCTOR WHO MANIA is building as the new TV season of DOCTOR WHO — which features the 12th incarnation of the space-time traveller and pop-culture icon known only as THE DOCTOR — is set to begin soon, and TODAY we get the first issues of TWO All-New DOCTOR WHO comics (the 10th DOCTOR #1, and THE 11th DOCTOR #1) now published by Titan Comics. In celebration of the new TV Season, and the New WHO comics, FUNNYBOOKS will host a DOCTOR WHO DAY get together right here at FUNNYBOOKS, this Saturday morning (from around 11am-1pm?). Everyone is invited to join us as we discuss DOCTOR WHO, ask DOCTOR WHO trivia, and give away some cool DOCTOR WHO prizes. DOCTOR WHO COSPLAY is welcome! More details will be included in a second E-Mail later this week.

Meanwhile, Marvel’s 100th ANNIVERSARY AVENGERS SPECIAL takes place 100 years after Earth’s Greatest Heroes formed and has a cover that connects with Marvel’s other July 100th ANNIVERSARY specials.

BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!
• LIFE WITH ARCHIE #37 takes place one year after last week’s “Death of Archie” (in LIFE WITH ARCHIE #36) and has a bunch of covers including a must-have, first-ever ARCHIE cover by Alex Ross. Also look for “ARCHIE ZOMBIES” today as AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE #6 is also New. • WALKING DEAD fans, who are reading the Graphic Novels, should be making their way to FUNNYBOOKS today to snag a copy of the new WALKING DEAD Vol. 21 Graphic Novel, which concludes the TWO-Graphic-novels-long “All Out War” storyline. • Image Comics has been a little under the radar in July until today when we get new issues of SAGA (#21), REVIVAL (#22), TREES (#3) and VELVET (#6). • Today’s TUKI SAVE THE HUMANS #1 is created, written and illustrated by Jeff (BONE) Smith (and looks pretty great). • DC’s SECRET ORIGINS #4 includes the origins of HARLEY QUINN, GREEN ARROW and DAMIAN SON OF BATMAN! • The seven DC titles with BATMAN 75th Anniversary Variants are AQUAMAN, BATMAN, BATMAN AND ROBIN, FLASH, JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK, SUPERMAN (the second JRJR issue), and WONDER WOMAN. • It’s a pretty big Pop Culture week with the TWO previously mentioned DOCTOR WHO #1 issues, a New issue of BUFFY SEASON 10, the New TRANSFORMERS vs. G.I. JOE #1, and THE STAR WARS LUCAS DRAFT Graphic Novel. • All this plus… GROO vs CONAN #1 features the return of FUNNYBOOKS FAVORITE “Wanderer” and is “half-drawn” by Sergio Aragones (with the CONAN parts drawn by Tom Yeates).

DC 3-D RETURNS THIS SEPTEMBER!
Last September, DC Comics added a New Dimension to comic book collecting by offering their fans special “Lenticular Hologram” covers on their 52 DC Villains Month titles. This September, DC will return us to the 3rd- Dimension by offering another 41 Hologram covers as part of their FUTURE’S END storyline. The 41 special issues will each offer a glimpse five years into the future of the DC Universe, and this time the covers will feature the DC HEROES on some amazing 3-D motion covers. Due to the (sure to be) high demand for these print-to-order issues, FUNNYBOOKS is NOW accepting pre-reserves on ANY and ALL of these 41, 3-D issues. We are including discounts based on how many titles you choose to reserve with us, including 20%-OFF when you reserve all 41 issues (a deposit is required). We have a limited number of complete sets to offer, so everything is while supplies last. Please note… These titles will be replacing DC’s regularly scheduled New 52 issues for the month of September. More details are available at FUNNYBOOKS.

That’s All For Now! Hope 2 C U @ FUNNYBOOKS! – Funny Steve
