Black Cat is 15! That's 77 human years!
Black Cat Comics in rockin' Milpitas is celebrating our fabulous 15th Anniversary this week! Way back in 2002 we had a dream to be your one-stop-shop for all things Super Hero, and thanks to your support we've been here each and every week bringing you all the latest and greatest from the Multiverse of Comicbooks! We've enjoyed high points like Jim Lee's "Hush" run beginning in Batman #608, 15+ San Diego Comic-Cons, and an endless number of New Release Wednesdays and in-store parties and events. We've survived low points like the economic downturn in 2008 that cost many of our Cats and Kittens their jobs, or the rent hike in 2015 that sent us packing to our way better forever home on Main Street. Through it all, we've done our best to be a place for fun, four-color fantasy, and friendship. We've worked very hard to be the best comicbook store there is, and we've been having a great time all along the way. But don't think for one par sec that we're putting this ship on autopilot! We have every intention of staying right here for another 15 years, and hopefully another 15 years after that! That's going to take just as much hard work, dedication, and love of Comics that has always been required of a great Comic Shop! As long as you want to buy comics from people you can talk to in a store that's comfortable and fun, Black Cat Comics in rockin' Milpitas will be here for you! Thanks for your patronage and support over these 15 years! Here's what we've got waiting on the shelves for you this week...

Weekly Comics for the week of 8/2/17
Weekly Comics for the week of 8/2/17

The only way to pack more martial arts action into an Iron Fist comic is to bring in the one and only Shang-Chi Master of Kung Fu, and that's exactly what happens in this week's Iron Fist #6! Danny Rand has a cult trying to kill him and could use a little back-up. No one is better suited to team-up with him than Shang-Chi! If you loved his title back in the day you must pick up this issue and see what the Master of Kung Fu has been up to all these years. If you aren't familiar with Shang-Chi, you owe it to yourself to check out this issue! - Causey
The Walking Dead #170  starts an all new story arc called "On the Road" and it's finally time for Eugene to start his journey to Ohio. With all of the crazy cult like groups in this series I can't wait to see how Stephanie and her group have survived for as long as Rick and the others. The journey will not be safe for Eugene and when finally meeting his radio pal will she be friendly to the group or start another war with Alexandria? The start of a brand new month is always exciting for Walking dead fans and if you are like me I am always waiting for the first Wednesday of the month to get my zombie fix. - Anthony 
Whatever happened to Amelia Earhart? In the new series Elsewhere Jay Farber tries to answer that question. Amelia is transported to an alien world where she meets Cort and Tavel two aliens who have just broken out of prison. Amelia joins them and gets involved with their struggle as she tries to find her way back home. Amelia Earhart's disappearance has always fascinated me. I love the strange and unexplained so I knew I had to pick up this book when I saw the preview. Be sure to check out Elsewhere #1 on sale this Wednesday. - Al
So we don't usually do reviews on reprints but this book was so good and sold out so fast that I wanted to highlight it again this week. The Batman / Elmer Fudd #1 reprint written so skillfully by Tom King is a must for any Batman fan. And heck, if you like Looney Tunes you better add this to your collection. Set in Gotham with the typical gritty landscape and enter Elmer Fudd, a man deranged for the loss of his love. He goes a huntin' for that rascally wabbit that just so happens to be Bruce Wayne. Pick up this incredible one-shot and enjoy all the cameos by the Looney Tunes characters you know and love. And make sure you read the back story at the end, it's hilarious! Enjoy! - Francie
