MULTIVERSITY AT FUNNYBOOKS

OFF TO COLLEGE!
It’s the third week of August (GAH!) and that means BACK TO SCHOOL is in full-effect (sorry!). This week, many local guys and gals, including our very own FUNNYBOOKS’ GAL VAL, will be heading-off to awesome college. Today will be Valerie’s final New Comic Day before beginning her freshman year! I can’t say enough about Valerie and what she has meant to FUNNYBOOKS during her reign as the FUNNYBOOKS GIRL. She has done an OUTSTANDING job, and I wish her the BEST COLLEGE EXPERIENCE EVER #comicbookstoreguy. We’re not sure which 5 hours of the 12-Hour New Comic Book Day (10am-10pm) Valerie will be taking this week (most likely the early shift) but if you happen to see her, make sure to wish her good luck (good luck cards with money in them are optional ;). If you miss her, don’t fret, I’m still here (Yippee!), and Valerie isn’t going too far away, and will be back behind the FUNNYBOOKS’ counter from time to time — but only when she’s done with her homework. Good Luck Valerie! And Good Luck to all the great, local kids that are headed to college for the first time, or who are headed back for more!

NEW THIS WEEK!
It’s another exciting Week of New Comics & Stuff at FUNNYBOOKS, with DC Comics’ and Grant Morrison’s long-anticipated MULTIVERSITY #1 ruling the week, and Image Comics and Ed (WINTER SOLDIER) Brubaker’s FADE-OUT #1 also a major player. I’m stoked for today’s 12-Hour New Comic Day! Let’s get to it!

THIS WEEK’S TOP FOURTEEN TITLES AT FUNNYBOOKS
01) MULTIVERSITY #1 (with Blank and other Variants)
02) FADE OUT #1 (Image – with Movie Magazine Variant)
03) BATMAN AND ROBIN #34 (Robin Rises – with Selfie Variant)
04) TEEN TITANS #2 (with DC Selfie Variant)
05) NEW AVENGERS #23
06) BATMAN ETERNAL #20
07-tie) NEW52 FUTURE’S END #16
07-tie) DEADPOOL vs. X-FORCE #3 (of 4)
07-tie) SENSATION COMICS FEATURING WONDER WOMAN #1
10) DAREDEVIL #7 (Original Sin)
11-tie) ORIGINAL SINS #5 (of 5)
11-tie) DEADPOOL DRACULA’S GAUNTLET #7 (of 7)
13-tie) MS. MARVEL #7
13-tie) TREES #4

WHAT IS MULTIVERSITY? – GOOD QUESTION!
It’s only “THE BIGGEST ADVENTURE IN DC’S HISTORY,” and it all begins TODAY as DC’s MULTIVERSITY #1 is #1 at FUNNYBOOKS. MULTIVERSITY is way too complicated to explain here, but we can tell you that it’s written by Grant Morrison, and illustrated by all sorts of talented artists, (including Ivan Reis for today’s #1 issue), and that it stars a cast of amazing characters pulled from the 52 Alternate Earths of the DC Universe (COOL!). Today’s MULTIVERSITY #1 has both standard and blank covers (as well as some other variants).

IMAGE COMICS FADES OUT!
The five year deal between Image Comics and the creative team of FUNNYBOOK FAVORITE writer, Ed (WINTER SOLDIER) Brubaker, and artist Sean Phillips, officially begins today as FADE OUT #1 hits the FUNNYBOOKS’ shelves and begins “an epic crime story unlike anything they’ve ever done before.” FADE OUT #1 is available in a standard cover ($3.50) and is also available in a special “Movie Magazine” variant ($6), which is magazine-sized, and has a cool retro look. Those thinking about waiting for the graphic novel may still want to snag the first issue for the bonus material that won’t be included in the graphic novels. The standard issue is 40-pages and the magazine variant has an additional 8 pages.

FUNNYBOOKS FACTS!
Some things you might not know about this week’s New Comics & Stuff…

• Today’s BATMAN INCORPORATED Vol. 2 Graphic Novel collects the story that killed ROBIN (spoiler warning). • August’s DC SELFIE promotion continues today with TWO new Selfie Variants (TEEN TITANS #2 and the “ROBIN Rises” BATMAN AND ROBIN #34). • INFINITE CRISIS FIGHT FOR THE MULTIVERSE #2 has art by local favorite Tom Raney and is polybagged to protect a secret video game-related code. • Now that her involvement with the RED LANTERNS is over, today’s SUPERGIRL #34 is a “DOOMED” tie-in. • SENSATION COMICS FEATURING WONDER WOMAN #1 begins a cool new WONDER WOMAN anthology series! • Fans of Ant Lucia and the DC BOMBSHELLS will definitely want to snag this week’s New DC BOMBSHELLS Calendar which is sure to get scarce real quick. • There’s also a really neat Marvel Comics “Pop-up” calendar available today. • ORIGINAL SINS (with an “S”) #5 (of 5), reveals hidden sins and secrets of dozens of Marvel heroes and villains! • Today’s two ORIGINAL SIN tie-in issues are DAREDEVIL #7 and NOVA #20. • This week’s WOLVERINE ANNUAL #1 is a “One Month to Die” issue. • Wesley Snipes, er… I mean BLADE is back in MIGHTY AVENGERS #13. • DEADPOOL Fans will find a butt-load of WADE WILSON action this week as the final issue of DEADPOOL: DRACULA’S GAUNTLET (#7) hits the shelves along with the new DEADPOOL vs. X-FORCE #3 (with another great Shane Davis cover), and the DEADPOOL-heavy SECRET AVENGERS #7. • Dynamite Entertainment’s JUSTICE INC. #1 presents the first ever pulp-hero team-up of DOC SAVAGE, THE SHADOW and THE AVENGER, and has multiple covers including one by Alex Ross. • Today’s DARK HORSE PRESENTS relaunch (with a Geoff Darrow story and cover) looks good. We’ve already ordered more. • Those enjoying THE STRAIN on TV can get more STRAINED by snagging the first issue of Dark Horse’s STRAIN: NIGHT ETERNAL today. • Valiant’s Valiant-Craft variant covers month continue today with MINE-CRAFT-style covers on ARMOR HUNTERS: BLOODSHOT #2, ARMOR HUNTERS HARBINGER #2, and the new DELINQUENTS #1 (which teams ARCHER AND ARMSTRONG with QUANTUM AND WOODY). • IDW relaunches a classic all ages adventure comic today as LITTLE NEMO IN SLUMBERLAND #1 hits the all-ages shelves (with a choice of 2 covers). • The GRIM ADVENTURES OF BILLY & MANDY join the SUPER SECRET CRISIS WAR with their own issue today. • There’s lots of little goodies this week including the new AMULET Vol. 6, and lots of reorders too including more copies of recent sell-outs, a restock of some key graphic novels, and a bunch of special orders (maybe even yours!).

GARDEN STATE COMIC FEST THIS SATURDAY!
This Saturday, FUNNYBOOKS will do double duty (duty! Ha!) as we will be in two places at once. While FUNNYBOOKS’ first customer ever, ZIGGY, will be behind the FUNNYBOOKS’ counter for the day, Funny Steve (that’s ME!) will be hitting the road (rt. 287 actually) and will be heading to Morristown for the GARDEN STATE COMIC FEST – North Jersey’s very own comic con! GARDEN STATE COMIC FEST is the real deal with Vendors, Comic Book Creators, Cosplay and more. More information about the fledgling New Jersey Comic Con can be found at FUNNYBOOKS or on their Facebook page (and while you’re on Facebook, make sure to give FUNNYBOOKS a “Like” if you haven’t already).

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

RAIN OR SHINE! IT’S NEW COMIC DAY!

COME IN OUT OF THE RAIN!
It’s supposed to be a little rainy out there for Wednesday’s 12-HOUR NEW COMIC DAY (10am-10pm) at FUNNYBOOKS, but that’s all good because we really haven’t had much rain lately (and it will be dry inside the store where it counts). Of course water is one of the natural enemies of Comic Books so we will be happy to “double-bag” your Comics & Stuff if you’re worried they might get wet. Besides the weather, the second week of August is looking fine indeed with lots of great new goodies including the second week in a row of a solid and exciting TOP TWENTY TITLES!

JUST THE FACTS!
We’re trying something different this week with just some quick notes about what’s going on with what Comics & Stuff. Here we go…

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.

THANOS, RACCOONS and SELFIES, Oh My!

AUGUST BLASTS OFF LIKE A ROCKET (RACCOON)!
August is off to a HUGE start with the long-awaited GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY weekend blasting-off the month, and the first New Comic Day of August treating us all to an Amazing TOP TWENTY TITLES, and all kinds of exciting and popular comics hitting every section of FUNNYBOOKS’ obsessively-arranged New Comic Shelves for the 12-HOUR NEW COMIC DAY (10am-10pm every Wednesday). This week, look for the second part of a BACK-TO-BACK SWITCHEROO (I forgot to tell you, last week there was a SWITCHEROO) as the new GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY comics (and the movie) help reclaim FUNNYBOOKS’ premiere New Comic Wall for Marvel (while kicking BATMAN back to his “usual” corner after being moved to the premiere wall himself last week for FUNNYBOOKS’ BATMAN’S 75th BIRTHDAY BASH. Speaking of our BAT-BASH, check-out the attached photo of the BIG, BAT-BASH CROWD (and look for more on the <>). THANK YOU to everyone who showed up for the BATMAN BASH!

It’s an all-new month, and for DC (lately) that means an all-new variant cover theme for many of their NEW52 August titles.
