Green Lantern Movie Prequel Comics
There's also a live action Green Lantern movie coming out! Next week you can join us for the midnight premiere. But this week you can get a head start by reading
Green Lantern Movie Prequel: Kilowog # 1
Green Lantern Movie Prequel: Tomar-Re # 1
Written by the creative talents behind the blockbuster motion picture, these exclusive one-shots tell the tales of the movie characters before the events of the film.
Well, they weren't lying.
Flashpoint will indeed usher in a relaunch of the DC Universe, with several new series and creative teams.
The creators are attempting to relaunch the DCU in such a way as to please long time readers and yet attract new readers to the fold.
I applaud the folks at DC realizing they need to make an effort to reach new readers. I am also cautiously optimistic that this new DCU will provide interesting stories, with books shipping on a dependable schedule. If nothing else, it will be an interesting Fall.
The following Flashpoint titles ship this week, each with a Free Pin (while supplies last):
Flashpoint: Citizen Cold # 1 of 3
FLASH FACT! He loves someone he should not!
Flashpoint: Deathstroke and the Curse of the Ravager # 1 of 3
FLASH FACT! He will stop at nothing to find his lost treasure!
Flashpoint: Emperor Aquaman # 1 of 3
FLASH FACT! He will drown the world - then rule it!
Flashpoint: Frankenstein and the Creatures of the Unknown # 1 of 3
FLASH FACT! They can't survive unless they find their maker!
Last week, if you passed on Flashpoint: Batman Knight of Vengeance # 1 of 3, I urge you to take another look! It's by the 100 Bullets team of Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso with a cover by Dave Johnson! Gritty and suspenseful, this take on Batman would make a fine Elseworlds on its' own. You don't even have to read Flashpoint to enjoy this series. I have ordered this book in quantity and we still have a limited number of Free Batman Pins available with purchase!
SkullKickers Certified Retailer
Friendly Neighborhood Comics is a Skull Kickers Certified Retailer! As part of our commitment to independent books, we intend to keep this series in stock!
MTV Geek has listed Skull Kickers as #8 on their 10 Best Comics For May:
"Remember when comics were just allowed to be fun? Skullkickers remembers that... This comic, from the art, to the writing, to the lettering, screams bloodthirsty joy from every page. A giant bald warrior, and an angry red-headed dwarf travel the world, killing monsters - and people - for fun and profit.
There's way more new-reader friendly exposition in the front of the book, but that's all you really need to know to enjoy the laugh-out-loud funny jokes, over the top violence, and celebrate the return of fun fantasy to comic books. Plus, an awesome pay-off of a last page. What more do you want from a comic book?"
Image has been publishing a variety of quality series, and we order them fairly heavily. Skull Kickers offers something a bit different, and it's a quality read.
|Samurai's Blood Podcast|
The Comic Book Roadshow Episode 126
This week the guys are joined by writer Owen Wiseman to talk about his latest project Samurai's Blood published by Image comics. He lets us in on what some of his influences are. We also learn a little about how he got into comics and writing in general.
This week, Samurai's Blood #1 debuts with a $1 issue!
In an era when lineage defined you, three teenagers must make their way through the world hiding their identities in order to find their destinies. As their village burns behind them, they are headed for a city they'd heard about only in stories. The three young samurai must now struggle to stay alive and take vengeance on the evil usurper who has destroyed the rest of their clan and the only world they'd ever known. Will they rise on the tides of vengeance, or they will they fall on the swords of fate?

|Squishables Are Here!|
Curl up with a cuddly fox, panda, dragon.., narwhal...., wha?..... cthulhu? What kind of cuddly creatures are these?
Once you hold one, you can't resist!
Anya could really use a friend. But her new BFF isn't kidding about the "Forever" part . . .
Of all the things Anya expected to find at the bottom of an old well, a new friend was not one of them. Especially not a new friend who's been dead for a century.
Falling down a well is bad enough, but Anya's normal life might actually be worse. She's embarrassed by her family, self-conscious about her body, and she's pretty much given up on fitting in at school. A new friend-even a ghost-is just what she needs. Or so she thinks.
Spooky, sardonic, and secretly sincere,
is a wonderfully entertaining debut from author/artist Vera Brosgol.
