It’s FUNNYBOOKS BIRTHDAY WEEK!

We would like to thank all of the many Friends of FUNNYBOOKS (like YOU!) for the generous patronage you all have shown over our many years as a Comic Shop.

This old Log Cabin (It really is a log cabin under that Red Brick facade) has some insulation issues, but those days are over as it is a chilly 0 degrees in here now. In honor of the new AC, we are changing our 23-year-old slogan from “Join the FUN!” to “Colder than Shoprite!” Stop by and FREEZE for yourself during Wednesday’s 12-HOUR NEW COMIC DAY (10am-10pm).

THE ALL-NEW BATMAN!
DC Comics takes the TOP SPOT on this week’s FUNNYBOOKS’ TOP TITLE List as the hugely-anticipated BATMAN #41 slams the FUNNYBOOKS shelves (with two covers — regular and “Joker”). BATMAN #41 — which was previewed in this year’s DC FREE COMIC BOOK DAY “DIVERGENCE” issue —introduces the most controversial new BATMAN COSTUME since KNIGHTQUEST, and reveals the NEW Man INSIDE the costume. With the award winning BATMAN creative team of writer, Scott Snyder and artist, Greg Capullo at the helm, we think just about everyone who shops at FUNNYBOOKS will be looking to claim a copy of this one — and may even want to snag the alternate “Joker” cover. Speaking of “Joker Covers,” June’s Joker-alternate-cover theme continues this week with SEVEN new Joker options including one on the new HARLEY QUINN #17 (see all seven listed together at funnyrama.com). DC also continues its June Launches this week with FIVE New “DC YOU DEBUTS,” including the New ALL-STAR SECTION 8 (written by Garth Ennis!) and the New STARFIRE #1 (written by Amanda Conner, and sporting a cool Amanda Conner cover). Another DC item we wanted to get behind is today’s BATGIRL OF BURNSIDE Graphic Novel which collects the fan-favorite BATGIRL #35-40 with art by Babs Tarr.

MARVEL-LAND!
SECRET WARS Fans can discover more realms of Marvel’s BATTLEWORLD today as SIX New BATTLEWORLD #1 issues — including MARVEL ZOMBIES, CAPTAIN MARVEL AND THE CAROL CORPS, and MRS. DEADPOOL (?) — hit the FUNNYBOOKS’ shelves, along with SIX second issues — including SPIDER-VERSE #2, ULTIMATE END #2 and INFERNO #2. Marvel’s Non-SECRET WARS titles this week include new issues of both SPIDER-GWEN (#5) and SILK (#5), as well as the New (FUNNYBOOKS FAVORITE) SILVER SURFER #12. We also have the 2nd SILVER SURFER Graphic Novel and the 3rd MS. MARVEL GN. And even STAR WARS is represented today in the form of KANAN THE LAST PADAWAN #3.

IMAGE WRITES THERE OWN SHIP!
As DC and Marvel battle it out for shelf space on one side of the store, Image has made a huge shelf-space-advance this week on the other side, as they continue to grow new readers with all kinds of interesting new creator-owned titles by some of the best comic book creators in the business! This week is one of those special Image weeks with some of their best titles all hitting the shelves at the same time, including Robert Kirkman’s WALKING DEAD #142, Brian K. Vaughan’s SAGA #29, Jeff Lemire’s DESCENDER #4, Mark Millar’s CHRONONAUTS #4 (of 4), Rick Remender’s BLACK SCIENCE #15, Warren Ellis’ INJECTION #2, and Grant Morrison’s NAMELESS #4 (now those are some great writers!!!). Also look for a new issue of BIRHTRIGHT (#8), STARVE #1 (written by Brian Wood) and the 4th EAST OF WEST Graphic Novel by Jonathan (SECRET WARS) Hickman.

CHOOSE YOUR SIDE DISHES!
With all the awesome Comics & Stuff being offered by the TOP THREE Comic Book companies (Marvel, DC and Image), it’s hard to get to everything else in a weekly E-Mail. But before we go, we wanted to mention some worthy goodies by “The Others.” IDW Publishing offers a TANK GIRL relaunch today as 21st CENTURY TANK GIRL #1 hits our Pop-Culture section, along with the new BILL & TED #4 (of 6). Our All-Ages section is also BOOMING with all kinds of colorful titles including new issues of SPONGEBOB, ANGRY BIRDS, REGULAR SHOW, and UNCLE SCROOGE, as well as the new CLARENCE #1. Valiant contributes the X-O MANOWAR 25th Anniversary Special, BOOM supplies us with a new MOUSE GUARD and the 2nd issue of LANTERN CITY. IDW provides Mark Waid’s INSUFFERABLE #2. Dark Horse has Harrow County #2 and Brian Wood’s REBELS #3. Archie’s “Black Circle” line offers FOX #3. AVATAR offers Alan More’s CROSSED PLUS 100 #5 (plus we’ve restocked Moore’s PROVIDENCE #1). We’ve also added the new DEADMAN WONDERLAND Vol. 9 to our Manga selection, and last but not least, one of the last of the Self-Publisher’s standing — Terry Moore — offers the new RACHEL RISING #34.

OKAY! Now that’s an awesome week of Comics & Stuff! It looks like it’s going to be another action-packed 12-Hour New Comic Day! We hope 2 C U @ FUNNYBOOKS! – Funny Steve

THIS JUNE IS JUMPIN’!

JUNE MEANS NEW THINGS AT FUNNYBOOKS!
It’s the first New Comic Week in June, and the 2015 Summer Comic book season is officially in full-swing at FUNNYBOOKS. For DC, June means the return of the NEW52 and the launch of some all-new titles. For Marvel, June means more STAR WARS and even more SECRET WARS as the BATTLEWORLD Battles rage-on, and many titles see their LAST DAYS! Meanwhile, here at FUNNYBOOKS, June means we’ve been doing this for an unbelievable 23 YEARS! Thank You everyone for doing your part to make this all possible! Lets get to today’s Comics & Stuff!

DC DIVERGERGES!
Now that DC’s Epic 8-part CONVERGENCE storyline has come to its climactic conclusion, DC will enter a new stage of comic book storytelling, which will include a mix of the best and most popular NEW52 Universe titles, and the introduction of all kinds of new titles with a wide range of interesting characters and stories. June also means a new DC alternate cover theme and this month’s theme is sure to have everyone SMILING… because it’s the JOKER! Look for special JOKER Alternate covers on a bunch of June DC Comics including FIVE today — Action Comics #41, Green Arrow #41, Green Lantern #41, Lobo #7, and Justice League #41 (which begins the HUGELY-ANTICIPATED DARKSEID vs. ANTI-MONITOR WAR). As far as the New titles go, look for FIVE DC debuts today in the form of Batman Beyond #1, Omega Men #1, Midnighter #1, Bat Mite #1 (of 6), and Bizarro #1 (of 6). Also from DC today look for the New WONDER WOMAN ANNUAL (which — If you’re reading the new WONDER WOMAN by Meredith and David Finch — you’ll need to complete the story), and also check-out a cool new B&W Deluxe Hardcover version of Frank Miller’s DARK KNIGHT RETURNS!

MARVEL’S WAR OF WARS!
It’s SECRET WARS vs. STAR WARS over on the Marvel shelves this week as THREE New STAR WARS issues — STAR WARS #6, DARTH VADER #6, and PRINCESS LEIA #4 (of 5) — hit the FUNNYBOOKS’ shelves to battle it out with the New SECRET WARS #3 (of 8), and a new wave of All-New SECRET WARS BATTLEWORLD titles. First and foremost of these is the new AMAZING SPIDER-MAN RENEW YOUR VOWS #1, which finds Peter reunited with Mary Jane (!) and their long-lost daughter, May! RENEW YOUR VOWS is available in a standard cover and also has both “Action Figure” and “Skottie Young” variants. Speaking of Skottie Young, this week’s GIANT-SIZED LITTLE MARVEL AVX #1 is an entire issue illustrated by Young in his “Baby Marvel” style (and also has an “Action Figure” variant). Other SECRET WARS BATTLEWORLD titles include ARMOR WARS #1, YEARS OF FUTURE PAST #1, X-TINCTION AGENDA #1, and FUTURE IMPERFECT #1 (which has an “INGWENIBLE HULK” Variant). It’s not All STAR WARS and SECRET WARS in Marvel-land, also look for the New GROOT #1, GUARDIANS TEAM-UP #6 (featuring NIGHTCRAWLER), and the THANOS INFINITY RELATIVITY ORIGINAL HARD COVER, which is ALL-NEW and is both written and drawn by the FUNNYBOOKS FAVORITE, Jim Starlin!!!
