Civil War #3 – After the HUGE reveal of issue #2, what are they going to follow up with in this issue?! Well, in theory, they actually start getting to the war part of the Civil War story. This is where we see brother fighting against brother, families torn apart, and general mayhem in the Marvel Universe. If you’ve been reading this series, you’re definitely going to want this issue! Come in early to get your copy – this turned out to be a bigger event than anticipated and quantities are (somewhat) limited.

Civil War: X-Men #1 – The mutants are finally dragged into the middle of this conflict, even though they’ve been through it all before – remember the Mutant Registration Act? – and they know where this sort of thing leads. Let’s see what the X-Men do, now that all the other heroes have been thrown into the mix too.

Eternals #2 – Judging from the fact that we don’t have any copies of #1 left in stock, you guys thought this series was worth checking out. Check out this issue to see what happens to the Eternals who have been brainwashed into thinking that they’re just ordinary humans…

JLA #0 – That’s right; there’s a new JLA in town, and you can get in on the ground floor! The series looks very promising this time around (doesn’t it always?); so let’s hope they can keep it rolling. This issue pits Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman against each other as they try to figure out who else they should invite to join the premier club in the DC Universe: the JLA!

Marvel Select Moon Knight Action Figure – No, we don’t normally talk about action figures in this space, but I wanted to let you guys know it was coming, and that it looks incredible! It’s based of David Finch’s stellar artwork on the new Moon Knight series, and it’s beautiful. These Marvel Select figures aren’t real easy to find and they’re not exactly cheap, but if you want an action figure that will make all your friends green with envy, this is it. Get in touch with me and let me know if you want to pick this bad boy up. First come, first served!

Sadhu #1 / Snakewoman #1 – I don’t know how many of you picked up the Virgin Comics #0 free introductory issue a couple of weeks ago, but it sure did remind me of CrossGen. Virgin Comics (think Virgin Records, Virgin Airlines, etc.) is using the vast and varied realm of Indian mythology to ground their comics universe. They’ve gone out of their way to get talented writers and artists, and they’re collaborating with some of Hollywood’s top movie makers as well as novelists. Sadhu #1 and Snakewoman #1 are some of the first issues to hit the stands; definitely give these guys a look if you enjoyed any of the CrossGen titles; I think you’ll find some happy similarities.

See you at Haven!

lets see what we have here...

Civil War has really impressed me so far I'll admit it I was nervous atfirst but now, it has really tooken off.

Woot for the new Justice League. Even though it isnt quite with us yet, I'm all for super teams. Do remember that this is the guy who out of the 5 books in his box 3 of them are New Avengers, Young Avengers, and Runaways. 3 teams and 3 awesome books. Fankly im pumped about this book.

Speaking of super teams Runaways 18 is due Wednesday too. Sweet!!! This book is so totally awesome ANNNNNNNND, this is the last issue before the runnaways are thrown into CIVIL WAR!!! If you guys arnt reading this book you should be because, "One of these Runaways is about to die."

Does Slave Labor Press have anything new going on lately?

SLG is putting out a handful of books, but I haven't had much interest in anything other than the Disney Licenses they've picked up (Tron, Wonderland, The Haunted Mansion, Gargoyles, etc.). Those titles (except Gargoyles) have sold really well.

Wonderland is, by far, the best of the bunch, with beautiful, quirky artwork and an interesting story.

If you want any SLG stuff, just let me know what you're interested in and I'll order it for you.
