Black Cat Comics

Weekly Newsletter 

February 01, 2017

Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, The Professor, and Mary Anne,
Here at Black Cat Comics in rockin' Milpitas we know that life is like a box of chocolates: most of it is full of stuff you love, and some of it looks delicious but is actually really gross, and you're not going to know for sure which is which until you try something! We're always encouraging our Cats and Kittens to break from their routines and try something new. We're always saying that every publisher has titles worth reading, and that if one of your favorite titles isn't wowing you, try something from one of the many other publishers out there working hard to create quality entertainment. Each weekend throughout the fabulous month of February, we're giving you a great opportunity to exactly that! It's time for our annual Publisher Sales, and this weekend we're starting with the Merry Marvel Marching Society! This Saturday and Sunday every item in the store from Marvel Comics, that is not New This Week or in your Sub box, will be 25% OFF! Haven't read X-Men in a while? Been wondering what Steve Rogers Captain America has been all about? Want a Deadpool t-shirt, or a Wolverine action figure for your desk? Now is your chance! Want to get a friend into comics? Now is your chance? Need any excuse to pick up comics on the cheap? Now's your chance! And we'll do it again every Saturday and Sunday this month featuring a different publisher. We know you love your favorite publisher's titles and characters, but here's a chance to introduce yourself to new universes and new characters. But, of course, you don't have to wait until the weekend to score lots of awesomeness! We've got giant stacks of new Comics from all your favorite publishers on the racks each and every Wednesday and that means now! Here's a taste of what we've got for you this week...

Weekly Comics for the week of 2/1/17

Marvel has been doing five issue mini-series starring its most popular characters. So far we've seen fan-favorites like Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Chewbacca. This week Star Wars Darth Maul #1 brings us a tale from everyone's favorite Phantom Menace character. We all wanted to see more of Maul, and his backstory is shrouded in mystery, so this mini-series should be very satisfying for any Star Wars fan. Cullen Bunn is the perfect choice to script this tale of darkness and revenge, and Luke Ross' art is impressive. Most impressive. Pick this one up along with the Black Cat Pack for any Star Wars mini you may have missed! - Causey
Let's face it we're all occasionally fans of the bad guy. Anyone not get giddy at the Darth Vader cameo in Rogue One? So when a new book featuring Bullseye comes out I get giddy. In this five issue series we get to find out what Bullseye does for fun. My guess is he likes to hit the target.With a back up story by the great Marv Wolfman Bullseye #1 looks to be a great read. Be sure to pick up a copy this Wednesday. - Al
The Whisperer War arc came to its conclusion last month and in this issue we will see the survivors deal with the aftermath of the war. A gigantic horde of walkers is approaching Alexandria and our heroes must find a way to stop the massive ocean of walkers from destroying one of their remaining communities. February is going to be an awesome month for Walking Dead fans since it will be one of the few months we will be receiving two issues. To celebrate the 25 th  anniversary of Image comics  The Walking Dead #163  will be 25 cents, it's a great time to jump into the series if you never picked it up before. - Anthony 
Oh how I wish to escape into a world of fantasy and tune out our own world for a few precious moments, but alas, in everything I read and see I am drawn back to our present situation. Baltimore the Red Kingdom #1 offers no solace. The first few pages read like a current news report of America being torn apart from within. Though they employ vampires, ghouls and monsters, they are too similar to be the proper distraction one seeks in reading a 4-colored funny book. I'm reminded of the birth of comics in the early 30s and 40s when fighting Nazis was the mainstay. How superheroes defeated great evil against all odds. I think our comics today are starting to mirror a similar sentiment. Onward we march, to fight yet another battle. - Francie
