Any long-time FPNYC blog reader knows by now that I kind of favor Marvel when it comes to the big 2 Comic Publishers. I try not to be biased, as both publishers have their share of faults (:: cough :: Jack Kirby got screwed ::cough:::), but I love their characters as well as a ton [...]
While I was always more into the model kits, during Gundam’s short-lived heyday in America, I was actually a little more into the action figures. It was out of convenience, really. The American action figure line was very cheap, especially when compared to the models, and offered a huge variety. You could get stuff like [...]
This past Monday we had Ilko Davidov, the director of “The Story of Rock ‘N’ Roll Comics,” and several of the artists from the original comic series in the store! They signed copies of the new DVD as well as their own amazing artwork. Afterwards everyone headed over to the Cinema Village for a screening [...]
The Weekly Planet is a newsletter I started writing for the FPNYC shop some years ago. It’s changed and mutated in a number of ways since its inception, but I no longer contribute to it weekly (I just don’t reserve the time for it these days… bizzy bizzy bizzy), though Unkiedev still lends his talents [...]
by Loran Summer is almost upon us once again, and of course, that means new toys. It seems like Bandai tends to fill the earlier and later months with stuff that’s basically repacks, from what I’ve noticed; simple kits that use parts from earlier ones, like the Marasai, Kirks’ Zaku Sniper, the GM II, etc. [...]
Two weeks ago we had an in-store signing to celebrate the release of the collected Archie Meets Kiss, with guests writer Alex Segura and artist Dan Parent! Check out the video from it below!
More controversy this week as two big-name comics authors lay the smack down on the major publishers! But that works out alright by us, because there are plenty of fantastic small press books to look at too! And with the MoCCA Fest just around the corner, now’s a perfect time to check out some of [...]

There’s a week to go before Free Comic Book Day…a full week of dreaming, scheming, screaming and camping out at the Forbidden Planet in order to get the finest free comics this side of Andromeda. Luckily for all of us, Forbidden Planet has TONS (literally) of amazing products to entertain while you wait, only this [...]
I’m proud to say one of my favorite cartoonists, Mr. Guy Delisle, came by the shop this morning to deface copies of his new graphic novel, Jerusalem Chronicles From the Holy City. The book released today and Forbidden Planet NYC has signed copies available at no extra charge… call to put one on hold, come [...]
by Chris Troy It’s been awhile hasn’t it FPNYC faithful! I would have written sooner, but I had a trinity of things keeping me away from blogging as of late, as my ass was in Boston earlier for PAX East, Chicago over a week ago for C2E2 and then celebrated my 3rd year of marriage [...]
by Loran With the new episode of Gundam Unicorn less than a month away from being released, I thought I should take a look at the last episode. Simply put, that episode was about an hour’s worth of mecha porn. Sure, it was very light on the story (and overall, kind of a weak episode) [...]
Just one more day till The Story of Rock N Roll Comics signing! The DVD’s are here and so are a handful of original Rock N Roll Comics! There will be giveaways all throughout the signing including free tickets to the screening of The Story of Rock N Roll Comics at Cinema Village that same [...]
