Big ups to our friends at RVANews and author Sam Davies specifically for the shout out in this great piece about comics for kids!

In an attempt to dabble in reverse psychology, we have tried to compile a list of reason why you should NOT pick up jimrugg's book STREET ANGEL from adhousebooks today when you come clear out your box.

Here’s the list:

-

Okay, results are in. There is literally NO REASON YOU SHOULD NOT BUY THIS BOOK.

Are you interested in approximately 200 Gambit and the Externals, vol. 4 comics? Brand New - never circulated. Thanks, Van

No thanks!

Here’s another sure-to-delight/depress new comic, also by the illustrious Rick Remender, out today!

"Low" takes place on the ocean floor, where the crumbling remains of society exist in a state of unrest. Although the shielded city once provided solace from the dying sun’s radiation, hope is running out for survival. None of the attempts to find an inhabitable off-planet location have succeeded, and time is running out. When a probe unexpectedly returns with new information, a brave group must risk their lives to retrieve it from the scorched surface of their planet. With art by long time collaborator Greg Tocchini, “Low” promises to be a must-buy book for Remender fans.”

-CBR

The new arc of Remender and Scalera’s emotional, high-impact sci-fi tour de force starts tomorrow! Come get your copy because YOU SHOULD IF YOU LIKE THINGS.

When Lapham hits a storytelling stride it becomes one of the more compelling reads you can can enjoy in the dreck of modern comics.

Take his run on the shitty 30 Days franchise.  Remember this is back in ‘08 when vampire boner season was in full swing.  What does Lapham do?  Takes stale genre tropes and makes it about the close/isolated relationships within urban dwellings, peppered with thoughtfully formed funny and dark characters.  At its core it’s about the survival of evil, but successfully pulls you in to care about its deplorable protagonist. 

Now he’s back on his Stray Bullets series.  The nuances in language, character motivations, and conclusions proves again to be one of the better crime comics that combines interpersonal dynamics with a genuine sense of what not to expect next.

Velocity Comics Newsletter!

Wow.

It’s me, usual newsletter writer/shop owner Patrick, back from being off for a whole week— the first time I’ve ever done that since Velocity Comics has existed! It’s like leaving one of your children on a block full of college kids, gutter punks, eccentric locals and crazed street weirdos for a week— you expect a little bloodshed, but when you come back all you can hope is that your beloved child survived the ordeal. I’m happy to report that not only did my little rugrat survive, she thrived (yep, my store is a girl. Deal with it)! I have Rawn to thank for that, who did an amazing job in the captain’s chair, and the customers who came in and let him take your money. Thanks everyone! I think I’m going to make a habit out of it.

While I was gone SAN DIEGO COMIC CON happened! Surprisingly there weren’t too many announcements, but here’s a quickie bullet list of some of the ones we thought were cool:

-these new Image comics debuting soon: TOKYO GHOST (Rick Remender & Sean Murphy!), RUMBLE (John Arcudi & James Harren!), SOUTHERN CROSS (Becky Cloonan, Andy Belanger!), DESCENDER (Jeff Lemire & Dustin Nguyen!), and INJECTION by the Moon Knight team of Warren Ellis and Declan Shalvey! Exciting stuff!

-Marvel’s doing THREE Star Wars comics, by some of the best creators in the biz! STAR WARS by Jason Aaron and John Cassaday, STAR WARS: DARTH VADER by Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larocca, and STAR WARS: LEIA by Mark Waid and Terry Dodson! And they’re in continuity with the movies?  Those oughtta make SW fans happy.

-Rick Remender & Jerome Opena are doing an AVENGERS OGN: RAGE OF ULTRON! Due next year! One of my favorite writer/artist teams. Yay!

-This excellent photo of Ben Affleck as Batman, starring his chin! http://comicsalliance.com/new-portrait-of-ben-afflecks-glorious-bat-chin-sighted-in-san-diego/

-This not-as-excellent photo of Gal Gidot as Wonder WOman, starring the color brown:

-ANGELA: ASGARD’S ASSASSIN ongoing by Kieron Gillen, Marguerite Bennett and Phil Jimenez!

I think those were my favorite things to spill.What about you?
