Every comic here at Forbidden Planet NYC is special, but some are more special than others. Case in point: for every Avengers vs. X-Men and The New Deadwardians, we get a little something like a Gup and Big Title #1, #2, and #3; comics done by our very own employees. Man that’s exciting! But yeah, all that other new stuff looks cool too.
“Draw” bridge? More like “jaw” bridge! Am I right, absolutely nobody? Yes, that’s right, that’s my horrible segue into bringing up this week’s comics. Particularly Ragemoor #1, the horror comic about a living castle! But there’s also Voodoo Child #1, Freedom #1, and Hoax Hunters #…0! Also in this week is the very lovely and talented Elektra Premium Hardcover, that you should all come in and look at and faun over. Pretty!
Good LORD! A man has handcuffed himself to the lamp post in front of our store! He’s demanding that EVERY copy of his new comic be sold, and he will not allow himself to be released until that happens! Our own intrepid Dan Roth takes the Weekly Pulse outside for a rain-soaked interview with artist Sean Von Gorman of The Secret Adventures of Houdini TP Vol 01!
One of our own is gonna be on TV!!!- cough cough..ahem. Sorry. Comics. Well, we have a look at the newest issue of Jeff Smith‘s R.A.S.L., Ted McKeever‘s Mondo #1 and Eddy Current, and an in-depth review of Aquaman #6.
Aaaand then we talk with a certain someone who’s gonna be on the tee vees! All that, and a shout out to some other fine comic-book themed Youtubery in the form of The Platoon of Power Squadron!
Lots to look at today! A couple more number sixes trickled out in the form of Batgirl, Batman and Robin, Frankenstein, and Suicide Squad. Plus more of everyone’s favorite enmouthed Merc and enlobstered Johnson! Most exciting of all, a new Conan book from Becky Cloonan and Brian Wood! Throw is some Dark Matter, Scarlet Spider, Memorial, The Strain, and Thief of Thieves, (editor’s note: currently sold out. New stock shipping march 14th) and you have a busy week of comics reading!
Jams, comma, tasty, is the order of the day here at Forbidden Planet. But not all jams are created equal. Some jams, like that which is Action Comics #6, are a mystery. I’m going to stop saying jams now. Are you reading this? Have any of the New 52s begun to feel stale? Or are we just old and jaded?
Lastly, my apologies to the band Savlonic, who’s name I misspelled in the credits and only just noticed because I have all the typing dexterity of a cave-fish.
