featuredimage13

We've got 21 days left to count down until the 15th annual FREE COMIC BOOK DAY event, here at Soundwave!

We're incredibly excited to see all of our friends here, that day, and their friends, as well, and for all of the sales and deals we've got planned that you're not gonna want to miss, as they'll be ONE DAY ONLY!

But, until we get to the event on May 7th, we've got a few things in store for everyone to get more out of their FCBD experience!
Starting a week from today (As this newsletter goes up, it'll be Saturday, April 16th), on Saturday, April 23rd, we will start our very own "14 Days of Free Comic Book Day" two week event! In these two weeks, friends and customers will be able to get in on unique, daily, sales and deals, leading to FCBD'16. Like our last two promotions, which are still good up until May 7th, the more you buy, the more FREE comics you get on Free Comic Book Day!
There's a total of 50 free comics to receive on FCBD, and we want everyone to get more than just the three free per person that we usually do every year.
We will announce these sales and deals progressively throughout the week, leading up to our first day of sales next Saturday, April 23rd.
As the weeks go on, and the deals keep coming, we can definitely guarantee that each one will continue to sweeten the pot!

Keep an eye out, here, on SoundwaveComics.com, and on our official FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2016 Facebook event page for all the updates you need on these deals, and on the event itself!
And let us know you're coming while on the event page!

For details on our last two promotions:
Click HERE to see our MARVEL: SEASON ONE original graphic novel promotion. Each Season One is $24.99, and if you buy one you get twelve, out of the 50, FCBD comics on the day of the event. If you buy more than one, you'll receive twelve more FCBD'16 comics per Season One you buy.
Click HERE to see our MARVEL ESSENTIALS promotion. Each one is between different price ranges of $16.99 to $26.99. If you buy one, same deal as the Season One OGN's, you'll receive twelve FCBD comics. If you buy more than one, we'll give you twelve more FCBD comics per Essential.
And you can expect the "14 Days of Free Comic Book Day" deals to do the same! You can even mix and match deals, as well! The more you buy, the more FCBD comics you'll get!

 

The Road to REBIRTH is Paved in SUPER-LEAGUE

in the pages of ACTION COMICS,

This Week!

The DC Universe will be going through some radical changes when REBIRTH hits in June, and no one is going untouched, not even SUPERMAN! We won't spoil anything for you fans who aren't keeping up with the advanced solicits of some of DC's Superman titles coming in June and July, but we highly suggest keeping a close eye on the current cross-over story arc SUPER-LEAGUE as it unfolds throughout the pages of the four core Superman titles. Not only will it affect the Superman books going forward, but some of what DC Comics has been promising seems to be unfolding in Super-League, as we speak...!

It began in SUPERMAN #51, and ran through the pages of BATMAN/SUPERMAN #31, now readers can follow the rest of the laying of the groundwork through the pages of ACTION COMICS #51!

STL001385

Superman is shocked to learn that Kara has been missing for some time as part three of "Super League" begins! Now, with Batman's help, Kal-El is on his cousin's trail-but he can't believe where it's leading him and who she has joined!

Until Rebirth was announced, and we got a better idea of what to expect from it, we weren't aware of how much build-up DC had already started within the pages of several other titles...
This week, DC Comics will be putting out new issues in their mini-series titles TITANS HUNT and SUPERMAN: LOIS & CLARK. For anyone unaware, these two titles will be causing plenty of ripples throughout the future of the DC Universe, and some would even say may be incredibly important for your DC Comics collection, going forward.

TITANS HUNT will be reaching #7 of its eight issue run...

STL001476

This title follows the ORIGINAL Teen Titans as they battle to regain their memories of a friendship and a team that have been lost to them, in order to battle a threat who is rearing their ugly head back into their lives. This book has everything DC Comics fans have been asking for: The return of the Legacy DC superheroes, and the re-establishment of the original Teen Titans team. Everyone you could have ever asked for is here, from Nightwing, Donna Troy, Arsenal, and Garth, to Lillith and Gnark, and even Hawk & Dove!
This title will lead into the DC Universe: REBIRTH launch of a brand-new TITANS title starring these characters.

SUPERMAN: LOIS & CLARK is a seven issue mini-series that's reaching its sixth issue this week!

STL001496

This title follows the pre-Flashpoint Superman and Lois Lane as they find themselves in a world not their own, with their son Jonathan. While The New 52 Superman has been enjoying a career of heroism, this more retired Superman has been dealing with minor threats in the background. 
Without spoiling anything coming in Rebirth, we can definitely say this will have a major influence on the Superman titles going forward, and will be tying into the Super-League cross-over event.

Don't miss out on these major game-changing titles that'll get you, and your collections, ready for the shake-up that is DC REBIRTH!

What's New In INDIES!?

4 KIDS WALK INTO A BANK #1

BLACK MASK COMICS

(W) Matthew Rosenberg (A/CA) Tyler Boss

A fun(ish) crime caper about children! Eleven-year-old Paige and her weirdo friends have a problem: a gang of ex-cons need her dad's help on a heist... the problem is those ex-cons are morons. If Paige wants to keep her dad out of trouble, she's going to have to pull off the heist herself. Like Wes Anderson remaking Reservoir Dogs, 4KWIAB is a very dark & moderately humorous story about friendship, growing up, D & D, puking, skinheads, grand larceny, and family.

STL001356

STL000944

BLACK EYED KIDS #1

AFTERSHOCK COMICS

(W) Joe Pruett (A) Szymon Kudranski (CA) Francesco Francavilla

It's dark. You're alone. Then there's a knock. You open the door to find two seemingly normal kids. They ask to come in, to borrow your phone to call for a ride. You find yourself overcome with an intense fear that you can't explain. And then you notice their eyes... black... SOLID black. You want to run, but now they're inside. It's too late. They have you. Eisner Award winner Joe Pruett (X-Men Unlimited, Cable) is joined by artist Szymon Kudranski (Spawn, Penguin: Pain and Prejudice) for this terrifying new horror series.

CHEW DEMON CHICKEN POYO #1

IMAGE COMICS

(W) John Layman (A/CA) Rob Guillory

The final episode of the groundbreaking and historic Poyo trilogy: DEMON CHICKEN POYO. Hell wants him. Heaven won't take him. Earth needs him. That was also the tagline for that godawful Constantine movie. But Poyo is so badass, he stole it from Keanu Reeves!

STL002376

DARK SOULS #1

TITAN COMICS

(W) George Mann (A) Alan Quah

Welcome to the world of Dark Souls; a landscape bathed in arcane fantasy, where primordial forces govern the tides of time, bonfires flicker in the darkness, and the undead stalk the earth in search of impossible redemption. From Titan Comics and Doctor Whoscribe George Mann comes this original tale of adventure and visceral horror that throws readers deep into the twisted myth of Namco-Bandai's award-winning video-game franchise.

DEPT H #1

DARK HORSE COMICS

(W/A/CA) Matt Kindt

From New York Times best-selling MIND MGMT creator Matt Kindt comes an exciting new undersea sci-fi mystery.
   
Mia is a special investigator hired to uncover possible sabotage taking place at a deep-sea research station. What she finds is a mind-blowing crime scene filled with suspects with terrible secrets, strange deep-sea creatures, and an impending flood!

DIVINITY II #1 (OF 4)

VALIANT ENTERTAINMENT LLC

(W) Matt Kindt (A) Trevor Hairsine (CA) Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic

The much-anticipated follow-up to the fi ve-time sold-out series that The Onion/A.V. Club calls the "Best New Superhero of 2015" is here! The acclaimed creative team returns for a perfect new jumping-on point into the expansive sci-fi saga that shook the world!

At the height of the Cold War, the Soviet Union - determined to win the Space Race at any cost - green lit a dangerously advanced mission. They sent three cosmonauts farther than anyone has gone before or since. Handpicked orphans with no connections to Earth, trained as devout Communists, and restricted from having families, they became lost in the stars and encountered something Unknown... Something that changed them.

Long thought lost and erased from the history books, Abram Adams was the first to return. The few that have been able to reach him believe him to be a deity. They say he can bend matter, space, and even time to his will. But, even with limitless powers, he is concerned only with the secret love he hid away from his superiors and the unborn child he never met.

Now, Miska, the female co-pilot of the group, has also returned to Earth...but, unlike Abram she had no secret family. Unlike Abram, she still believes in the Communist ideal. And, unlike Abram, she intends to play a very real role in the return of Soviet glory.

Earth is about to meet a new god. And she's a Communist. How long can it be before the nations of Earth bend before DIVINITY?

JOYRIDE #1 (OF 4)

BOOM! STUDIOS

(W) Jackson Lanzing, Collin Kelly (A/CA) Marcus To

What's to Love: After working together on Hacktivist and Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials original graphic novel, the writing duo of Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly (Batman and Robin Eternal) join forces once again with artist Marcus To (New Warriors, The Flash: Season Zero) for their first creator-owned series that takes readers to the stars in this space epic with a punk-rock attitude, perfect for fans of Young Avengers and Runaways.

What It Is: In the future, Earth sucks. The stars have been blocked out for so long that people have forgotten there was anything else besides the dumb World Government Alliance watching over them, training children to join the militarized Allied Youth and eliminating all resistance with a giant ray gun. Uma Akkolyte is a girl who shoots first and leaps before she looks, and when she gets a strange message from outside the barricades of SafeSky, she jacks a spaceship and punches through the stratosphere with an unlikely crew of teens who are totally not ready for what they're about to find.

Chock full of sex, violence, and very, very bad behavior. Experience Lady Death fully realized! Long live Lady Death! Lady Death: Chaos Rules #1 captures the rockin' independent spirit of her original Chaos! Comics (1994-2002) run but brings her story to the present. She's bolder, darker, sexier Hope, with more brains and brawn.

(W) Brad McGinty (A) Brian Smith (CA) Brad McGinty

You thought - no, hoped - those disgusting creepy heads from the '80s were gone forever, but boy, were you wrong!
