VELOCITY COMICS! YEAH!
FCBD Spotlight: Guardians of the Galaxy

This comic does what an FCBD book should do, it introduces you effectively and entertainingly to the story and characters while also introducing a new plot element to current readers. I had very little interest or knowledge of the military-Flash-Thompson-Venom character, but this short prologue to the new run of GotG filled me in AND got me interested!

I mean, that’s what Free Comic Book Day is all about. WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT YOU WEIRDOS!?

We know some of you get weary with all the events and crossovers. But please trust we wouldn’t lead you astray when we tell you that ORIGINAL SIN #0 (out today) is one of the new books you should pick up. It’s a galactic murder whodunit!

COME GET YOUR COMICS!

Too bad zdarsky and mattfractionblog didn’t use rvacomicpodcast's variant for the Sex Criminals VOL 1. cover. Speaking of which we have said Trade Paper Back IN STOCK NOW!

Free Comic Book Day Preview: Transformers vs. GI JOE

It took me four pages of this comic to remember I was reading a toy property license and not a lost Kirby “Fourth World” story. Yes, I just said that, and I meant it. It seems like companies are starting to notice more indie-vibe books making big waves at Marvel/DC and have put this particular story into the hands of Tom Scioli (Godland). He and co-writer John Barber took the idea of two famous toy characters fighting and made it what it should be…WEIRD! Pick this one up or be behind the eight-ball at your own peril.

Hello, all!

It’s a CURTAIN CALL on books offered for April ordering and June shipping this week, and I don’t think my customers have given this month’s list much of a thought. We have hundreds of subscribers, but only THREE people signed up for Robert Kirkman’s new horror ongoing OUTCAST? And only four of you know for sure they want Bryan Lee O’Malley’s long awaited follow-up to Scott Pilgrim, SECONDS? If you can take a final look and get back to me with adds by Wednesday, that’ll ensure they won’t sell out from under you like Ms. Marvel and Manifest Destiny and Dead Letters did. Talk to me, people!

FREE COMIC BOOK DAY is less than two  weeks away! Saturday, May 3rd! Holy moly! I hope you can make it out, I recently confirmed that all the bike race street closures shouldn’t affect our corridor of Broad Street at all. Relief. Anyway, there are some amazing offerings this year, and it’s also time for our annual 25% OFF EVERYTHING SALE! 10am to 7pm, get the freebies while they last and the savings all ding dang day!

VCU COLLEGE STUDENTS WHO ARE ALSO SUBSCRIBERS! If you haven’t told us about your plans for the summer and how they affect your ability to maintain your box, we NEED to know this week! Let’s talk about it! We have options for you!

ORIGINAL SIN #0 RIVERA VAR

OVER EASY HC    24.95 Mimi Pond is well known for working on The Simpsons, but is also a fantastic cartoonist in her own right. This long awaited GN fictionalizes her experiences as a waitress at a diner, and it’s one of the most anticipated books of the year.
