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 – 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 – Bitey Castles

“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!

The Weekly Pulse – December 29th, 2011

Take a whole hand-full of DC numbers 4, add some Marvel, a bit of IDW, a pinch of Dark Horse, and finish off with just a great big helping of Coffee. Let steep for three minutes and stir!

Morgan Pielli’s Pile of Minis INFANDUM #2 and HEAVEN ALL DAY

2012’s almost here, but I have so many more comics to read! The pile grows ever-larger, blotting out the sight of the coming year. Plus, you know, the end times. I’ll need something to wile away the days as I await the fulfillment of the Mayan prophecy, the collision of Planet X, total economic meltdown, and the eruption of the Yellowstone National Park’s super-volcano.

Infandum #2 by Molly Lawless

We have Molly Lawless’ second installment of Infandum in stock. I haven’t read the first in the series, but if it’s on par with this book, then Lawless is a talent to watch. Infandum #2 is a fun and funny look at a variety of topics. The bulk of the book is a tongue-in-cheek retelling of famous baseball goofs (narrated by the embodiment of the flub; mister Bill Buckner). The stories are as interesting as they are amusing (which I appreciated, as normally have very little interest in sports and sports trivia). Rounding out the book are several autobiographical tales as well as an instructional vignette on how to react to being dumped.

Lawless has an expressive and detailed drawing style that compliments her sense of humor nicely. The sideways alignment of some of the baseball stories is a bit awkward on the page (I suspect they were drawn originally for someone else’s anthology), but that’s really the only criticism I have. Her work is well worth checking out.

Heaven All Day by John Martz

I’ve been thinking about widening the scope of Morgan Pielli’s Pile of Minis to include small press comics in addition to self-published minis. There’s some tremendous stuff being produced that, while it does reach a wider audience than self-published work, it is still largely unknown outside of the indie scene. When I saw that we got John Martz’s Heaven All Day in stock, I figured now is the perfect time to take the plunge. Continue reading
