MARCH TO FUNNYBOOKS FOR NEW COMIC DAY!

THOR STORMS IN!
It’s the first New Comic Day of March 2015, and although Spring is just two weeks away (!), winter weather still reigns supreme over New Jersey. One bright side to the long, cold winter is that we’ve made it all the way to the “T’s,” and we hope Jim Cantore is ready for some “God of Thunder-Snow” because Winter Storm THOR IS HERE! — and that’s kind of cool for everyone who reads comics! Once again, it looks like FUNNYBOOKS’ weekly Wednesday New Comic Day will escape the brunt of the storm, so come on down and and grab your favorite New Comics & Stuff! … And don’t get too excited for the next “U” WInter Storm because URANUS isn’t on the list!

LEIA LEADS THE WEEK!
Marvel and Star Wars are back on top at FUNNYBOOKS this week as the New PRINCESS LEIA #1 hits the shelves as our #1 Title. PRINCESS LEIA (the third new Marvel Star Wars title) is written by Mark Waid and nicely illustrated by fan favorite “good girl” artist Terry Dodson (we also have some choice LEIA Variants if you’re interested). Marvel also claims the #2 spot on our top title list this week with the new AVENGERS #42 (a “Time Runs Out” issue — and with only one month left until SECRET WARS, time is pretty much running-out right now!). Marvel fans will also want to check out this weeks New GUARDIANS TEAM-UP #1 (guest-starring the AVENGERS) and ALL-NEW HAWKEYE #1, written by FUNNYBOOK FAVORITE writer, Jeff Lemire (more on him in a minute), which begins a new HAWKEYE title — even though the Matt Fraction HAWKEYE series still has one issue left to go.

DC MOVIE VARIANTS ARE HERE!
March means a new Variant Cover theme for DC Comics, and this month everyone is really excited for the super-cool DC Movie Poster variant covers which feature homages to some of the most iconic movie posters of all time. This week look for the first THREE Movie variants including GRAYSON #8 (Enter the Dragon), DETECTIVE COMICS #40 (The Matrix), and GREEN LANTERN #40 (2001 a Space Odyssey). Plus, look for a straggler HARLEY QUINN Variant today (oddly enough on the new HARLEY QUINN #15).

IMAGE AND MORE!
Image is looking good again this week, and FUNNYBOOKS has responded by once again expanding the shelf space we reserve for the industry’s THIRD Largest Comic Book producer. This week from Image, look for the promising new DESCENDER #1, written by FUNNYBOOK FAVORITE writer Jeff Lemire (we told you we would be mentioning him again). Also from Image, look for Grant Morrison’s NAMELESS #2, as well as SAGA #26, BLACK SCIENCE #12, REVIVAL #28, RAT QUEENS #9, GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS #6, and more, including TWO New Image Graphic Novels, NAILBITER Vol. 2, and BIRTHRIGHT Vol. 1. Other titles we’d like to point out this week are Valiant’s IMPERIUM #2, Alan Moore’s CROSSED PLUS 100 #3, and DC’s SCOOBY DOO TEAM-UP #9 (guest-staring SUPERMAN!!!). DC’s New DEATHSTROKE Action Figure — from the ARROW TV Show — is pretty sweet too.

“ON THE LOOSE” ROUND TWO!
Today FUNNYBOOKS kicks-off ROUND TWO of the FUNNYBOOKS “ON THE LOOSE” series of Back Issue sales, which feature Un-Bagged & Boarded Back Issues at BELOW HALF PRICE (and in many cases 75%-OFF!). February’s IMAGE round is now over, and now ON THE LOOSE are issues of BOOM, IDW, DYNAMITE and DARK HORSE comics. March’s Round Two also includes lots of cool POP-CULTURE Loosies, and plenty of PULP HERO Loosies. All “ON THE LOOSE” Back Issues are available at the BARGAIN DEALS of $2 EACH, 3 for $5, 8 for $10, and 20 for $20 (mix and match!), and there are some really great comics to be found in these 9 well-organized short boxes. Round Two starts today during FUNNYBOOKS 12-HOUR NEW COMIC DAY, which is pretty good timing if you need some bargain stay-at-home reading for Winter Storm THOR!

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

Although this week’s TOP TITLE LIST alone is enough to have every local comic book enthusiast heading straight to FUNNYBOOKS for our pateneted 12-Hour New Comic Day, we would still like to tell you some things about this week’s comics you might like to know! DC’s TOP TITLE this week is BATMAN #39 which is an “Endgame” issue featuring THE JOKER (!) and offers a choice between a Greg Capullo cover, and a HARLEY QUINN variant cover. FIVE More HARLEY variants can be found on this week’s new issues of AQUAMAN, FLASH, CATWOMAN, SINESTRO and JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK (and next week, look for the first wave of DC’s March’s “MOVIE TRIBUTE” Variant Covers). Tying with BATMAN #39 for the TOP SPOT on FUNNYBOOKS TOP TITLE LIST this week is Marvel’s hugely-anticipated, SPIDER-GWEN #1. The newest Spider-title hits the FUNNYBOOKS shelves today with both “Blank” and Skottie Young “Baby” variant covers. Come and get ‘em! (SPIDER-MAN fans should also be on the look-out for the new AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #15 this week). Marvel fans might also want to check-out the new THOR ANNUAL (with THREE covers), ALL-NEW X-MEN #38 (a BLACK VORTEX tie-in) and FANTASTIC FOUR #643 (as the end of that title nears). Oh yeah! … And don’t forget Marvel’s New DARTH VADER #2 which can be found in our new STAR WARS “Section” along with this weeks STAR WARS #1 (3rd print), and this week’s new MAD MAGAZINE (a STAR WARS issue!). Besides Marvel and DC comics, there are all sorts of other cool titles everywhere you look at FUNNYBOOKS this week. In particular Ed Brubaker fans will want to check-out Image’s FADEOUT Volume ONE Graphic Novel, and will also want to score a copy of the all-new CRIMINAL SPECIAL EDITION ONE SHOT which is available in a standard cover and size, and a super-cool and retro, magazine-sized variant issue (while supplies last). Another title everyone will be checking-out this week is the New BLACK HOOD #1, from Archie Comics (but not really an “Archie” comic).

FUNNYBOOKS DEEP WINTER DOWN-LOW!
You may notice something strange when you stop by FUNNYBOOKS this week… There aren’t any Sales or Promotions going on. That’s because it’s week TWO of the FUNNYBOOKS DEEP WINTER DOWNLOW — where we get back to the basics of selling Comics & Stuff, and take a deep winter breath as we get set for the many fun and exciting things on the Spring and Summer Horizons. There’s great stuff on the way for Comic Fans in 2015 including FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2015, which is Saturday, May 2nd this year. Stay tuned! – Funny Steve

VADER RISES! LAST CHANCE FOR LOVEBUCKS!

GIVE IN TO YOUR DARK SIDE
Marvel’s 2015 STAR WARS launch continues this week as the highly anticipated DARTH VADER #1 hits the FUNNYBOOKS shelves as our #1 title. Like Marvel’s new STAR WARS comic, the events of the New DARTH VADER title take place after STAR WARS “A NEW HOPE,” and — like STAR WARS #1 — the New VADER #1 arrives with a full spread of really cool Variant Covers, including a Skottie Young “baby” Variant, an Action Figure Variant, a Movie Photo Variant and a Blank “draw your own” Variant. We also have some 1:25 variants to choose from (while supplies last), and a 1:50 J. Scott Campbell Variant (which will be Silent-Auctioned). Plus, we just received more copies of last week’s sold-out STAR WARS #2, and we still have 1st printings of STAR WARS #1— which is now on a 3rd printing! Looks like the force is strong with this relaunch.

LAST CHANCE FOR LOVE…BUCKS
If a bank offered to give you $25 just one month after you gave them $20, and there was no limit to the number of twenties you could give them, wouldn’t you jump at the offer? That’s exactly the offer FUNNYBOOKS makes to every Fanboy, Fangirl and FanFamily out there during our annual LOVEBUCKS promotion. And that’s why you have to act fast to secure the amazing deal! LOVEBUCKS are on sale NOW through Valentine’s Day (that’s this Saturday! Yikes!). To get in the mood for LOVE…BUCKS, let Funny Steve serenade you with the LOVEBUCKS song at funnyrama.com (there’s a link under the sliding banner). Warning, it may get stuck in your head.

Also from Marvel look for SPIDER-WOMAN #4, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #24 (a “Black Vortex” issue) and Jim Starlin’s THANOS vs. HULK #3 (a FUNNYBOOK FAVORITE).

HARLEY VALENTINES DAY!
DC’s TOP TITLE this week is the HARLEY QUINN VALENTINES DAY SPECIAL which has two Amanda Conner covers (both featuring a flirty HARLEY and a rather unamused BATMAN), along with a special “blank” cover. Inside the Valentines-themed one-shot, find out what happens when HARLEY QUINN wins a date with BRUCE WAYNE! It’s also week two of HARLEY Cover month and this week’s HARLEY alternate covers can be found on GREEN LANTERN CORPS #39 and JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED #9. DC fans might also want to pick-up the long-overdue SECRET SIX #2, and — if you need even more DC superteams with two “S”s in the title (and more HARLEY!) — check out the New NEW SUICIDE SQUAD #7.

MORE MORE AND MORE
Besides the great new Comics & Stuff hitting the shelves from Marvel and DC, there are all kinds of other goodies to choose from this week at FUNNYBOOKS, including an all new issue of Image Comics WALKING DEAD #137 (OMG! Did you see the new episode?). Image also offers-up TWO great new Graphic Novels, Mark Millar’s STARLIGHT, and Warren Ellis’ TREES, and a really impressive IMAGE COMICS “FIRSTS” COMPENDIUM which collects the first issues of WYTCHES, FADE OUT, OUTCAST, NAILBITER, SOUTHERN BASTARDS, LOW, WICKED + DIVINE, SHUTTER and C.O.W.L. all for only $5.99 (that’s a HUGE Bargain!). Although it’s a relatively slow week for the “Others,” Valiant does step-up with New issues of Q2 (#5) RAI (#7), and the new DIVINITY #1 by writer Matt Kindt and artist Trevor Hairsine.

BRING THE FAMILY!
The SPONGEBOB MOVIE is now in theaters so it’s only fitting that this week’s SPONGEBOB #41 has landed a spot on the FUNNYBOOKS TOP TITLE LIST. To add to the SPONGEBOB celebration, FUNNYBOOKS has restocked many of SPONGEBOB’s most recent comics! Stop by and soak them up!

IMAGE STILL ON THE LOOSE
Last weekend we introduced an all-new series of FUNNYBOOKS’ Weekend Sales called “ON THE LOOSE,” which feature UN-bagged & boarded back issues from our vast overstock at BELOW HALF-PRICE.

FEBRUARY AT FUNNYBOOKS!
It’s February at FUNNYBOOKS, and the NEW MONTH kicks-off with a FANTASTIC AND FUN week of New Comics & Stuff, anchored by Marvel’s STAR WARS #2 (FUNNYBOOKS #1 title this week). February also means Valentines Day and the return of FUNNYBOOKS’ LOVEBUCKS! We’ve just printed up a fresh batch of the highly-coveted, Valentines-themed FUNNYBOOKS Gift Certificates which come with a built in discount of 20%-OFF. Like the LOVEBUCKS SONG says, you give us $20 and we’ll give you $25 back in LOVEBUCKS. LOVEBUCKS can be spent on anything at FUNNYBOOKS that isn’t already discounted or on sale. The only catch is you have to wait one month — after Valentines Day — to use them. LOVEBUCKS is one of our most popular promotions of the year, but is also one of the shortest. LOVEBUCKS are on sale now until Valentines Day, Saturday February 14th (that’s in TEN DAYS!). You can buy LOVEBUCKS for yourself, or for that Special Fanboy, Fangirl or Fan-Family Member in your life (and don’t be too shy to ASK for some!). You can begin using your 2015 LOVEBUCKS on March 14th. Come and get your LOVE… BUCKS (and you can listen to the LOVEBUCKS Song now at funnyrama.com (there’s a link under the sliding banner).

HARLEY QUINN MONTH IS HERE!
A new month means a new variant cover theme for DC Comics and this month the theme is HARLEY QUINN! Throughout the month of February, look for special HARLEY QUINN Variants on some of DC’s most popular titles. These HARLEY Variants are “order all you want” for retailers like FUNNYBOOKS, and are available at cover price, right on the FUNNYBOOKS shelves (while supplies last). This week’s look for HARLEY variants on the new GRAYSON #7, GREEN LANTERN #39, ACTION COMICS #39, and DETECTIVE COMICS #39, (all of which made the FUNNYBOOKS TOP EIGHTEEN TITLE LIST this week). Besides the HARLEY Variants, also look for a “straggler” FLASH-75 variant on today’s SUPERMAN #39. Speaking of the Man of Steel, SUPERMAN’s EARTH ONE adventure continues today in the SUPERMAN EARTH ONE HARD COVER Volume 3. And, if you are into DC’s EARTH ONE Universe, you can still snag the recent TEEN TITANS EARTH ONE HC at the deep-discounted price of $14.99 as many of our discount offers from last weekend are still in effect.

IMAGE HAS THE WRITE STUFF!
Image Comics continues to make its mark on the comic world this week by claiming FOUR of the TOP TEN titles on the FUNNYBOOKS TOP TITLES LIST with Scott Snyder’s WYTCHES #4 (tied for second place), Brian K. Vaughan’s SAGA #25, Ed Brubaker’s VELVET #9, and the new NAMELESS #1 (written by Grant Morrison). What a great line-up of Comic Book writers!
