The Weekly Pulse – Boxing Day

It’s true! It’s happening! The great movin’-ing is upon us!

In just under 2 weeks, we will be officially in our sweet new digs: 832 Broadway (between 13th and 12th streets) in Manhattan’s Union Squ-area.

But you don’t have to take my word for it; here’s video proof. Boxes! Empty shelves! Broad expanses of wall-space with neither boxes nor shelves!

And finally, a very quick sneak-peak into the new store!!

The Weekly Pulse – Fantastic Fourth

Happy Americaday everybody! And what better way to celebrate the day that The United States became a thing that everybody was saying, than with a gigantic sale! And what better way to kick off a gigantic sale! than with a gigantic pile of comics! And as luck would have it, that’s precisely what Dan and I, your humble director Morgan, have in store for you today. What comics, you ask? SO MANY COMICS I blurt back while flinging Cape 1969 #1, I Told You So, God and Science, and Avengers Vs X-Men #7 in your general direction.

The Weekly Pulse – Danosaurs vs. Raviens

NEW camera! NEW format! NEW co-host! Everything’s new- and also late. Sorry. All this NEW took some time to figure out. Plus, this is one honking slab of episode: clocking in at a beefy 20 minutes! Our intrepid dou wade into the merky waters of Barry Sonnenfeld’s Dinosaurs Vs Aliens, take a hit off of Alan Moore’s The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen III: Century #3 2009, and get all wibbly-wobbly over Star Trek TNG / Doctor Who Assimilation #2! All that, and a ton more!

The Weekly Pulse – Mars Attracts!

AK AK, AK AK AK.

– DO NOT RUN. WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS. WE HAVE COMICS FOR YOU. COME CLOSER. CLOSER TO OUR DEATH-ER.. COMICS RAY AND GET YOUR COMICS. IGNORE THE SCREAMING OF YOUR COMPANIONS. THEY ARE SCREAMING WITH HAPPINESS BECAUSE OF ALL THE GREAT COMICS.

COMICS LIKE SAGA 4. IT IS NOT COVERED IN ACID. AND AVENGERS VS. X-MEN 6. IT IS NOT MADE OF BUZZ-SAWS.

IF YOU SMELL FIRE, IT IS BECAUSE LOST DOGS IS A REAL BARN BURNER. NOT BECAUSE WE HAVE VAPORIZED YOUR BARN. –

AK, AK AK.

The Weekly Pulse – Topsy-Curvy!

Another week, another controversy. Once again our intrepid reviewer Dan, along with his faithful sidekick A T-Shirt Dummy, jumps into the deep end of a new DC kerfuffle. But elsewhere, in the world of things that are NOT a PR nightmare: The Massive #1, Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre #1, and Josh Cochran’s This Is Me, Everyday!

This plus a new issue of A v X Vs and Spider-Men #1 round out a solid week of comics!

The Weekly Pulse – Picard Man-Who-ver

Oh sure, we’ve got a bunch of hot new trades in this week; Batman Annual #1: Night of the Owls, Batman: Death by Design, Animal Man Annual #1. But the big news this week is: Star Trek the Next Generation Doctor Who  Assimilation #1. Not just the comic, which we have; but the in-store signing with the book’s artist: J.K. Woodward! Mr. Woodward was nice enough not only to drop by, but to do head sketches for everyone who came by! And that’s not all: he also whipped up an amazing Assimilated Dalek drawing that was raffled off to one lucky attendee! Stay to the end of this week’s “Weekly Pulse” for footage from the event!

The Weekly Pulse – Breaking the Mold

Mold! Mooooold! We have so much Mold! On VHS and DVD. The VHS version comes with a copy of the soundtrack on vinyl! The only way this set could be MORE retro would be if Thomas Edison himself showed up at your house upon purchase, to shake your hand and badmouth Nikola Tesla. Or if it came with a genuine mold-protective mask- wait…it DOES!?

But that’s not all that’s happening at the most happening store that happens to sell comics: No, we have a whole slew of new comics, as well as some speculation about DC’s big upcoming announcement. So pull up a chair, a t-shirt dummy, and a musty basement, and join us for today’s edition of The Weekly Pulse!

The Weekly Pulse – Power Girl Corrupts

With the Avengers movie set to premiere in a mere two days, it’s mighty hard to concentrate on anything else! But concentrate we must, as there’s all manner of exciting things in the store this week! Minimates of Iron Man, Cap, etc, new #1s from DC’s second wave of New 52, plus some cool indie books like Henry and Glenn Forever and Ever!

The Weekly Pulse – Fighting the Brand that Heeds You

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 the comics that might otherwise be under your radar!

The Weekly Pulse – Inside Job

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.
