Get Amped For New Comics, Wednesday, December 15

Spider-Man goes through costumes like the Hulk goes through purple pants, and his newest one premiers this week in Amazing Spider-Man #650. There is a new Hobgoblin in town, and he's brought an amped-up arsenal to the table. This is going to take an new amped-up Spidey, and he has the suit just for the occasion.

    Subject-ive Commentary

    Good friend (and one-time Dr. No's team member) Jim Moore passed along a galley of his upcoming young adult suspense-thriller Subject Seven, and I just got a chance to read through it.  I try to avoid hurting friends' feelings, so I don't write about books I didn't enjoy.

    I'm writing about Subject Seven.

    The book follows a group of teens who are the results of a program to create genetically engineered sleeper assassins. The plans are simple: keep trying until the program is perfected, destroy the failed experiments.

    Then things go wrong. Subject Seven escapes... and in doing so, reveals that he possesses the very skills they've been hoping to instill in their subjects. He's so good, in fact, that even though he's only ten years old, he's able to best his captors and disappear from the program.

    Jump ahead five years, and a seemingly unrelated group of teenagers comes together at the behest of a mysterious caller. Once they assemble, they learn that each of them is a failed experiment, and those responsible for their existence want them dead. But that's not as easy as it sounds...

    Subject Seven is a fast-paced young adult novel, filled with insightful glimpses into the lives of teenagers who feel that they don't quite fit in. That's normal, of course--and it's the commonality of that makes this such a strong young adult novel. Every teen feels like there's something different about him or her--but in the case of Hunter, Cody, Gene, Tina, and Kyle, there's a good reason to feel that way. The novel takes the commonality of the adolescent experience and uses it as a launching point for a compelling adventure novel that's the kickoff of a potential series.

    Moore's writing is taut, lean, and fast-paced. The prose is vivid and energetic, and the storytelling is sufficiently strong to propel the reader through its 300+ pages. As is the case with many young adult novels nowadays, Subject Seven leaves the door wide open for a sequel; hope that we don't have to wait too long! I'm eager to hear more about the true purpose of the program and how Seven and his teen comrades-in-arms find a place for themselves in a world that seems to want them dead and gone.

    Look for it in a Razorbill paperback edition in January.

    Go Batty for Comics on 10/13

    Bat fans, this is the week for you. At long last, Bruce Wayne continues his journey back to the DCU in Batman: Return of Bruce Wayne #5, with art by Ryan Sook! Bruce is transported to Gotham City's gritty past as a private detective searching for his way home. This is the penultimate issue leading to Bruce's return to present time, but how will his return affect the rest of the Bat Family? Batgiril, Batman & Robin, Outsiders, and Red Robin each have their own problems to handle in these four Bruce Wayne: The Road Home one-shots.

    Speaking of returns, zombies are popping their heads outta the graves this week. You were hungry for more of the Blackest Night, and DC doesn't aim to disappoint. Find out more of the story in Untold Tales of Blackest Night. This stand alone issue will deal with some of the darkest stories never revealed in DC's blockbuster event. Don't miss it.

    If super zombies aren't your thing, Kirkman's zombie epic Walking Dead continues in the sixth over-sized hardcover for the series. These wonderful hardcovers are great for fans both old and new; each book collects twelve issues and their covers and includes bonus material not seen in the regular issues and trades. Also this week, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are back on their most frightful case in the Victorian Undead Special. They thought the zombie menace was gone, but a series of murders seems to say differently. But what does Dr. Jekyll have to do with it this time? Those are enough undead books to shake a shotgun at!

    After bringing us the average boy turned hero in Kick-Ass and the world's worst villain in Nemesis, Millar is back this week with artist Leinil Francis Yu for his all-new super hero series, Superior. See how the hero Superior changes the life of former star-student Simon Pooni after he develops multiple sclerosis. In the making for nine-years, Millar claims this is the "nicest" hero book he could write, so if the darker tones of his previous kept you away, give Superior a try.

    These books, and many more, will be available as soon as we open the doors on Wednesday, so come on by! (And if you want to get an idea what else you can expect, check out the covers below!)

Cyclops disbanded the last X-Force team, but with the return of Apocalypse, Wolverine and Archangel have to reform the group with several of the most deadly mutants around: Deadpool, Psylocke, and Fantomex. This team will get the job done no matter the cost. Make sure to give this action packed title a try.

    While Bruce Wayne is still missing, the long lost Batman and Solomon Grundy story by Bernie Wrightson is finally found. Written by Ron Marz, Batman: Hidden Treasures presents full-page Wrightson illustrations inked by Kevin Nowian on every page. This issue also collects Wrightson and Len Wein's classic "Night of the Bat!" See how only Wrightson could depict the Dark Knight.

    Hercules is finally back this week in Chaos War #1, but even with his new powers, can he and the other heroes stand against the Chaos King? Since the Secret Invasion, the Chaos King has amassed his army of alien gods while he waited for the perfect chance to attack Earth. The time is now, and the war to rival Annihilation begins here.

    The long-awaited (and alas, long-overdue) Image United #3 is also shipping this week. Hey, it takes a lot of time to move those pages all over the country so that all six of the Image founding artists can illustrate their own characters!

    These Boots are Made for Walking

    Superman's still on his walkabout this week--and what an amazing story it is! If anyone had told you that a story involving Superman's walk across America would have been one of the best comics of the year, you'd have thought they were crazy, right? But J. Michael Straczynski makes it work. If you haven't read Superman recently, this story arc is the place to start!

    A new title joins the Green Lantern line with the introduction of Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors #1, which focuses on Guy Gardner. Green Lantern fans (and who isn't?) will want to take a look!

    The X-Men's war with vampires continues in X-Men #2, and that means that this is a story you can really sink your teeth into!

    Robert Kirkman's Walking Dead is selling stronger than ever, due in part to the upcoming AMC television series--but due even more to the superlative storytelling in every issue! Walking Dead #76 arrives this week, which should make a lot of readers quite happy indeed.

    All these books, and many more, will be available as soon as we open the doors on Wednesday, so come on by! (And if you want to get an idea what else you can expect, check out the list below!)

This book was printed in an ultra-limited edition of less than a thousand copies and is totally sold out from the publisher, so don't miss out while you have a chance to get one of these!

    Brightest Day #7 offers readers the first insights into just why the chosen dead heroes have returned to life--and you might be surprised by what we learn!

    "One Moment In Time" continues in Amazing Spider-Man #639, as Joe Quesada reveals just what led to the Peter Parker-Mary Jane Watson breakup... and what's in store for the couple in the future.

    What would have happened if Kal-El's parents, Jor-El & Lara, had made the fateful trip to Earth with him? That's what we'll find out in the Elseworlds tale Superman: The Last Family of Krypton by veteran Superman writer Cary Bates.

    The Big Seven Oh Oh

    Past, present, and future--it's all here in this week's Batman #700, which features on story focusing on Bruce Wayne, one on Dick Grayson, and one on Damian Wayne--and they're all written by the incomparable Grant Morrison!

    The Avengers franchise revamp continues with the debut of Avengers Academy, the Avengers "training ground" title. Find out who comprises the next generation of Avengers, and who comprises this generation of instructors!

    Justice League: Generation Lost has proven to be a major Brightest Day title, and one of DC's best-selling new books. If you haven't tried it yet, it's not too late--we have restocked on the first and second issues as well in preparation for the third issue's arrival!

    Spawn collectors take note--we're receiving the limited upscale format Spawn Origins Deluxe Edition HC, reprinting a monster-sized helping of early issues of McFarlane's saga. Grab it while you can, because this one won't be in print for long!

    Great Stuff Awaits on June 3rd!

    June kicks off with the third issue of Brightest Day, the best-selling series that continues where Blackest Night left off. Find out how the resurrection of Hawkman, Aquaman, Deadman, and other characters impacts the DCU--and how they come to terms with their own return to life--in this fascinating biweekly series cowritten by Geoff Johns & Peter Tomasi.

    Another week, another great Avengers title--this week, it's Brian Bendis & Alan Davis's Avengers: Prime #1, the kickoff of a five-part arc that reconciles the split between Iron Man, Thor, and Steve Rogers.

    Bat-fans will want to take a look at Joker's Asylum #1: The Riddler, the first book of a five-part weekly event that offers the Joker's take on some of Batman's most memorable rogues.

    Learn about the missing period in Jason Todd's life in Red Hood: Lost Days #1, the first issue of a six-parter.

    And Batman Beyond fans take note: Terry McGinniss makes a DCU appearance in Superman/Batman Annual #4, which paves the way for the Batman Beyond series beginning later this month!

    June is twice as mice: Mice Templar: Destiny #9 and Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard #1 both arrive this week!

    As we noted above, new book day this week is June 3rd, not June 2nd (Memorial Day has delayed releases by 24 hours)--but we'll have everything ready for sale when we open the doors on Thursday!

Meanwhile, DC delivers a "Brightest Day" trifecta with Green Lantern #54, Green Lantern Corps #48, and Justice League: Generation Lost #2.

    The third issue of Felicia Days' The Guild is available for purchase today, along with the first issue of Amory Wars: In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth--two books that many of you have been asking about in the past few weeks.

    Bright Days and Heroic Ages Galore!

    What a week for fans of Marvel and DC superhero universes! DC has several major series launches and Brightest Day tie-ins to offer, including the first issues of Zatanna, Legion of Super-Heroes, and the decades-spanning DC Universe: Legacies, as well as Brightest Day #2 and Justice League of America #44. Marvel kicks off the week with Avengers #1, their major revamp of the Avengers franchise; other highlights include Heroic Age #1, Ultimate Comics Avengers 2 #2, and Invincible Iron Man #26.

    Breaking the Siege

    This is the week that Siege comes to an end with the fourth issue and its two startling deaths--and the passing of a hero is commemorated in Siege Epilogue: Fallen Sun (which Marvel solicited under the "placeholder" name of Fallen). Who dies? Who survives? You'll be able to find out beginning on May 12th at 11am, when we open the doors and have new comics ready for purchase!

    Siege fans will also want to add New Avengers Finale and Dark Avengers #16 to their "must have" list, since both of those books bring the Siege to a close and pave the way for major changes in light of the new Heroic Age.

    Batman begins his circuitous time-spanning trip home in Grant Morrison's Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #1. So where is he now, and how many eras will he have to pass through on his way back home? Well, it is a six-part series...

    Three major DC "Brightest Day" launches this week, too: Birds of Prey #1, reuniting Gail Simone and Ed Benes; Justice League: Generation Lost #1, which brings back the bwah-ha-ha era heroes--but there's much less laughter this time; and Titans Special: Villains for Hire, with a startling death to kick off this twisted new series.

    Pulp fans take heed: both First Wave #2 and Doc Savage #2 are here, continuing DC's new pulp-focused superhero-less multiverse.

    A double helping of Green Hornet as the near-future dystopian Green Hornet Strikes debuts, along with the first issue of the Kevin Smith's Kato limited series.

    What else? Well, there's a ton of stuff--in fact, this is the largest release week of the year thus far! Take a peek below this paragraph for some of the highlights of this week's releases--then come on by and check 'em out in person!

    Other highlights include another Uncanny X-Men installment of Second Coming, the third part of the "Return of Bruce Wayne prequel in Batman and Robin #12, and Joe Kubert's superb look at one of the most brutal battles of the Vietnam War in Dong Xoai Vietnam, 1965.

    Free Comic Book Day 2010

    We at Dr. No's would like to offer our sincere thanks to everyone who helped make Free Comic Book Day 2010 a great success!

    Our guests, superstar artist Mark Bagley and writer extraordinaire Brian Reed. were well-behaved and only devoured 1 very small customer, pictured below, but that small nourishment was enough to power them through and they were kind enough to stay late to make sure everyone got a signature or a wonderful sketch!

    Just a few of the more than 1500 people who showed up to enjoy more than 7000 comics that were given away on May 1st.

    Who said Ms. Marvel was cancelled? She seemed to be going strong at Dr. No's, as Brian Reed (who wrote her comic book adventures) can attest!

    Mark Bagley misunderstood a request for a sketch for a child as a request for a sketch on a child.

    Hundreds of guests enjoy the must-have items available for sale as well as the many free comics.

    Hey, don't worry, Sharpie autographs are only semi-permanent!

    Scores of fans lined up for autographs and sketches.

    Marvel premiered the latest version of Ultimate Spider-Man at Dr. No's!

    As impressive as these costumes are on film, they were even moreso in person! Ms. Marvel and Captain America brightened the day with their surprise visit.

    Free Comic Book Day - May 1st!

    Hope everyone is making plans to come by Dr. No's for Free Comic Book Day on Saturday, May 1st! We'll have dozens of titles to choose from, Fincluding all-ages-friendly comics, DC's special War of the Supermen #0, Dark Horse's introduction of their new Solar and Magnus titles written by Jim Shooter, an Iron Man/Thor special from Marvel, and much more. There's stuff for newcomers, for long-time fans, for collectors... there really is something for everyone!

    Second, we have a great pair of guests joining us for a little while that day. Mark Bagley, artist of Justice League of America and the man who holds the world record for drawing more issues of Spider-Man than any other illustrator, will be on hand. So will Brian Reed, writer of the best-selling Siege: Embedded, recently-completed Ms. Marvel series, the upcoming Spider-Man: American Son, and much more. That's two great creators--and you can say hello, ask 'em questions about their work, and get their autographs between noon at 2 pm on Saturday!

    Third, our backstock sale will still be going on. We're running "by one get one at half-price" sale on all our floor-boxed backstock issues, so this is a great time to fill in holes in your collection!

    Fourth, we'll have all of our manga titles on sale "buy two get one free" for this day only!

    Fifth, we'll have some other surprise sales, so come on by and check out the bargains.

    And finally, for those of you who are gaming fans, we're having a sneak peek event for the latest YuGiOh series that day. $20 gets you five packs of the new release, Shining Darkness, along with a special promo card--and that means you'll be able to get five packs of this hot new release more than a week before the rest of the world has a chance to buy it! The sneak peek event starts at 3pm, so don't miss it!
