Wizard World Update & Weds' Comics!! (8-9-06)

Sorry this update is a few days behind, but I was up at Wizard World in Chicago, and I wasn’t able to get the update out before now. However, I did bring back some nifty things from Chicago to tickle your fancy: great sketches for the store, as always, a convention exclusive Spider-Woman action figure from New Avengers (VERY cool), and a couple of convention exclusive variant covers for some hot comics: Ultimate Spider-Man, Civil War: Frontline #1, etc. Come by the store and check this stuff out! Also, I’ll be updating again soon with some of the information – both announced and dug up by careful investigation (or overheard when a Marvel guy blurted out something to someone when he thought no one else was around) – that we found out at the convention. Very cool stuff. On to the update…

Annihilation #1 – Those who have stuck with the four limited series leading into this huge cosmic event will finally be rewarded! Those four titles – Nova, Ronan, Silver Surfer, and Super Skrull – have been building up to the coming Annihilation, and it’s finally here! Yeah, those books dragged out a little bit, but it’s time for the showdown now – Annihilus and Thanos are going to be wreaking some major havoc.

Fables #52 – As always, this book is a real treat for comic book readers, and I really anticipate this issue will be as well. Come by and check out my new Snow White sketch from Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall artist, Jill Woodson – direct from this week’s Wizard World convention!

Martian Manhunter #1 – The man from Mars is getting his own series again! All fans, rejoice! Here’s hoping they make his head a littler more, uh, normal looking. Right now, he kind of reminds me of the Coneheads.

Ultimate Spider-Man Annual #2 – Yes, it’s that time again, folks! Last year’s incredible USM annual introduced the romantic Peter Parker/Kitty Pride entanglement and was, frankly, one of the best Spider-Man stories I’ve ever read. Bendis promises this issue will be as good; here’s hoping he’s true to his word!

Wolverine Origins #5 – The Captain America/Wolverine/Nuke story continues – and I’ve got a bad feeling Cap isn’t going to like it when he discovers he’s been set up. This has been a really good series so far, and this issue should ratchet things up a notch as this story hits its climax. Keep an eye out for a cool variant cover for this issue; I managed to get my greedy little hands on a couple.

See you at Haven!
