9 DAYS UNTIL COMIC NIRVANA

COMIC BOOK EXCITEMENT ABOUNDS AT FUNNYBOOKS!
FREE COMIC BOOK DAY WEEKEND is now just 9 days away (#YES!YES!YES!) and the excitement continues to build here at your friendly neighborhood FUNNYBOOKS! Things are also getting exciting on the FUNNYBOOKS’ shelves with some bonafide “New This Week” BIGGIES this week, including our top two combination of Marvel’s ORIGINAL SIN #0 and DC’s JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED #0 (both with great writers). Adding to the excitement is this week’s hugely-anticipated WALKING DEAD #126 — which ends the long-running, twice-a-month, “All Out War” storyline. And for dessert, may we suggest Evan Dorkin’s ELTINGVILLE CLUB!

DC INTERNATIONAL
DC has a pretty sweet week of New Comics, claiming 4 of the top-5 spots on FUNNYBOOKS’ weekly top title list with some impressive stuff including JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED #0, which is written by Canadian, Jeff Lemire (ANIMAL MAN, TRILLIUM) and was originally titled, JUSTICE LEAGUE CANADA. Although the name was changed, the “UNITED” JUSTICE LEAGUE team of ADAM STRANGE, HAWKMAN, GREEN ARROW, SUPERGIRL, MARTIAN MANHUNTER, ANIMAL MAN, and STARGIRL, is headquartered in Toronto and introduces a new Canadian superhero to the DC Universe (This weeks issue #0 is also available with one of those “sketchable” blank covers). Also from DC look for the debut of another new series as SECRET ORIGINS #1 begins a NEW52 title which will feature the origins of all sorts of NEW52 characters (this week’s #1 issue reveals the origin stories of SUPERMAN, SUPERGIRL and DICK GRAYSON / ROBIN). Two more “big” DC issues this week are the new BATMAN / SUPERMAN #9 (which is the “lost” 3rd part of the 4-part “First Contact” Multiple Earth, crossover with WORLD’S FINEST), and the new BATMAN ETERNAL #3 (which continues the new weekly BATMAN series).

WHO WATCHES THE WATCHER?
WHO is the WATCHER, and WHAT did he see? Marvel’s HUGE 2014 event which centers around one of Marvel’s “Cosmic Elders” begins TODAY in ORIGINAL SIN #0, which is brought to us by FUNNYBOOK FAVORITE writer, Jason Aaron and FUNNYBOOK FAVORITE artist, Jimmy Cheung (!). Also from Marvel this week check out the new GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #14 which introduces FUNNYBOOK FAVORITE artist Nick Bradshaw to the title (between Cheung and Bradshaw, Marvel dominates in the art category this week). Also from the House of Ideas today are new issues of UNCANNY AVENGERS, DAREDEVIL and FANTASTIC FOUR.

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!
Besides all the superhero action from the BIG TWO, there is a myriad of other comics & stuff to choose from this week from just about every section inside FUNNYBOOKS. Image is back in a big way with a full week of titles including the previously mentioned WALKING DEAD #126, as well as new issues of MANHATTAN PROJECTS, THIEF OF THIEVES, UNDERTOW, SOVEREIGN, DEAD BODY ROAD, LAZARUS, FIVE GHOSTS (and the FIVE GHOSTS Vol. 1 Graphic Novel). Pop-Culture is front and center with New EVERYTHING (STAR WARS, STAR TREK, BUFFY, TOMB RAIDER, G.I. JOE, TRANSFORMERS, TMNT, and the New 24 #1 (with a standard cover and a photo cover featuring the one and only Jack Bauer!). ALL-AGES is also well-represented with new issues of REGULAR SHOW and BRAVEST WARRIORS, along with the start of a New HEROBEAR AND THE KID miniseries and the SIMPSONS’ DUFFMAN special (OH YEAH!). Plus! Don’t forget the “ALSOS” which include, BOOM’s EVIL EMPIRE #2 (written by “Say Anything” Frontman, Max Bemis and a favorite of FUNNYBOOKS’ Gal, Val), several titles from Avatar (including GRAVEL, UBER and two issues of CROSSED), and THE ELTINGVILLE CLUB #1 (of 2) which is written and drawn by FUNNYBOOK FAVORITE creator, Evan (MILK AND CHEESE) Dorkin #huzzah!

EASTER BASKET GOODIES ABOUND AT FUNNYBOOKS
Easter is this weekend and FUNNYBOOKS has an abundance of great goodies to help fill up those easter baskets. We have POKEMON, YU-GI-OH and MAGIC Cards (decks and packs), small action figures (including STAR WARS, BATMAN and MARVEL UNIVERSE), cool mini-mates, and some nifty new DC and MARVEL Mystery Boxes (which have really taken off here at FUNNYBOOKS). Plus, we have some great smaller all-ages graphic novels and other books including a bunch starring BATMAN and SUPERMAN. We also have a great assortment of ARCHIE DIGESTS (an easter basket favorite!), and, don’t forget about all of our great ALL-AGES comic books which will jazz-up any Easter basket with fun, excitement and the gift of reading!

EXCELLENT WEEK OF COMICS & STUFF
With FREE COMIC BOOK DAY excitement building, comic book publishers are positioning themselves to attract new readers to their titles (and keep entertaining the old ones) and there are some big things going down on the shelves of FUNNYBOOKS (and even BIGGER things in the weeks to come!). DC and Marvel spilt this week’s top 10 with five titles each, but DC has 4 of the top 5 including our #1 title of the week, BATMAN #30, which concludes the popular ZERO YEAR storyline by the dynamic creative duo of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo. For more BATMAN, you can snag the second issue of the new BATMAN weekly, BATMAN ETERNAL #2, as well as the new BATMAN AND WONDER WOMAN #30 which continues the search for ROBIN. Note: Don’t try to look for back issues of BATMAN AND WONDER WOMAN because the title, which started as BATMAN AND ROBIN, has become a BATMAN team-up book and features different guest stars all the time — the previous issue is BATMAN AND AQUAMAN #29 (still on the FUNNYBOOKS shelves). Also from DC this week are the new HARLEY QUINN #5, JUSTICE LEAGUE #29 (a FOREVER EVIL issue) and the all-new SINESTRO #1. Meanwhile, in the Marvel Universe… Marvel places 2nd this week with the much anticipated SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #31, which is a whopping 131 pages (for only $5.99), has two main covers, and concludes the fan-favorite series which starred DOC OC’s Brain in PETER PARKER’s body. Fans of PETER PARKER can look forward his return in the all-new AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 which hits the FUNNYBOOKS’ shelves on the New Comic Day before FREE COMIC BOOK DAY WEEKEND. Also from Marvel this week look for the new ULTIMATE FF #1, MS. MARVEL #3, and the new HULK #1 which relaunches the series and has both “blank” and “baby” variants (same deal as usual, the “blank” is cover price, the “baby” is $6 or cover price ($4) when you by a regular cover). All this plus X-MEN fans are in for a whole stack of reading as X-MEN, UNCANNY X-MEN, AMAZING X-MEN, WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN, X-FORCE and WOLVERINE all have new issues this week.

SO, WHAT ELSE IS NEW?
STAR WARS fans can snag both “THE” STAR WARS LUCAS DRAFT #7 (of 8), and the second STAR WARS Graphic Novel which collects issues #7-12 of the popular STAR WARS ongoing series written by Brian Wood. Image Comics practically takes the week off with only a few titles including MERCENARY SEA, STRAY BULLETS THE KILLERS #2 (I really enjoyed the first issue) and Matt Fraction’s SEX CRIMINALS Graphic Novel. Dynamite continues it’s Gold Key relaunches this week with the new SOLAR MAN OF THE ATOM #1 (also with a “blank” cover). And it’s a great All-Ages week with all kinds of goodies including A PIGGY’S TALE #1, which follows the adventures of a heroic 3-legged dog.

FULL STEAM AHEAD TO FREE COMIC BOOK DAY WEEKEND 2014
Things are amping up around here as we are just 16 Days away from FUNNYBOOKS’ BIGGEST comic book weekend of the year, FREE COMIC BOOK DAY WEEKEND 2014! We’ve been working behind the scenes getting ready for the big event and we are extremely excited to get to it, and to hand-out FREE comic books to everyone who stops by FUNNYBOOKS on Saturday May 3rd from 9am-9pm (that’s 12 HOURS of FREE COMICS!), and then again on Sunday, May the 4th (be with you) from 11am-6pm (that’s another 7 HOURS #nottooshabby. FREE COMIC BOOK DAY WEEKEND is also the opening weekend for AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 (which looks cool as heck) and rumor has it, a certain Friendly Neighborhood Superhero may just swing by our little red brick comic shop for FREE COMIC BOOK DAY photo opportunities. Although FUNNYBOOKS does not have an official costume contest on FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, by all means, feel free to dress-up to help celebrate the big day. We can always use some cool photos of cosplayers at FUNNYBOOKS!

FUNNY FEVER CURED!
The FUNNYBOOKS Doctors have finally discovered a cure for the 2014 strain of FUNNYFEVER (FUNNYBOOKS Sickest Graphic Novel Sale of the year) and that cure is not more cow bell, it’s time – as in it’s time to end FUNNY FEVER! FUNNY FEVER will be completely cured this Saturday, April 19th (one month since it began), so there’s only a couple of days left to grab those graphic novels you’ve been eyeballing. BTW, FUNNYBOOKS will most likely be closed on Easter Sunday.

That’s All For Now! Hope to see everyone at FUNNYBOOKS this week! Starting on Wednesday’s 12-Hour New Comic Day. – Funny Steve

There’s also new issues of WALKING DEAD and SERENITY, as well as a brand new NEMO (from the LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN) hard cover written by the guy that also writes today’s MIRACLEMAN #4 (the last sentence was a comic book joke and should not be understood by “normal” people).
