DC Comics Begins The Biggest Brawl

That Should Get ANY DC Fans Excited!

This week, DC's first cross-over event (Mind you, not UNIVERSE cross-over event) hits our shelves, FINALLY!

JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. SUICIDE SQUAD #1 (of 6)!

STL027401

The first major event storyline of DC's Rebirth era begins with a day Amanda Waller always knew would come: the Justice League discovers the existence of the Suicide Squad! This government-sponsored black-ops team of super-villains with bombs implanted in their brains is obviously a deal-breaker for Earth's paragons of truth and justice! But you can bet that the Wall and her Task Force X won't go down without the fight to end all fights as this weekly series gets underway!

As the synopsis reveals, this will be a WEEKLY series, so with that said every issue of this six-issue event will have three covers, each. A main cover, an Amanda Conner variant, and a "fight variant" that will feature a member of the Justice League fighting a member of the Suicide Squad that will be done by different superstar artists each issue...
This week, we've got Gary Frank on the "fight cover", which you can check out below with the Amanda Conner variant:

Cover "B" by Amanda Conner

STL027404

Cover "C" Variant by Gary Frank

Now, going forward, if you're interested in collecting an entire set of variant covers, let us know so we can order accordingly, and you have to do it QUICK, like mentioned, it's a weekly series, so there's only so much time in-between each issue that we can do any adjustments! Keep that in mind!

Peter Quill might have been born on Earth, but he's been away a LONG time.

STL027262

Before the Guardians...there was Gamora!
From screenwriter Nicole Perlman-co-writer of the Guardians of the Galaxy screenplay-and Marvel superstar artist Marco Checchetto comes a killer new ongoing series! Once upon a time she was Thanos' heartless pet assassin and favorite daughter. Today, she is the backbone of the Guardians of the Galaxy, putting her life on the line to defend the innocent. What was it that transformed her from being used as a tool of her oppressor, to a champion of the powerless? Embark on a journey of revenge and redemption, and witness how Gamora earned her reputation as the Deadliest Woman in the Galaxy.

Steve Dillon's Last Arc on THE PUNISHER Begins This Week...

Iconic Punisher artist Steve Dillon, unfortunately, passed away in recent months. The current title he was working on, before passing, was THE PUNISHER with writer Becky Cloonan. This week, #7 not only begins a new arc for the on-going, but begins the final arc of the series with Steve Dillon doing the artwork, which he did until #9. #10 will see Declan Shalvey taking over artistic duties going forward...

So, this is one that Punisher fans will want to have in their collection, to remember the artist by, after decades of delivering some of the most iconic Punisher moments in comics history...

Plus, Agent Ortiz chased Frank into hell and came out the other side. Now she's out for revenge...

 


 

Still in a STAR WARS Mood?

DARTH VADER Run, DOCTOR APHRA!

ROGUE ONE is here and it's FANTASTIC! Have you seen it? Either way, if you're riding the STAR WARS hype train like we are, now's the time to get into DOCTOR APHRA!
The character of Doctor Aphra made her debut in DARTH VADER #3 as the first brand-new character in the Star Wars Universe post-Disney acquisition. Now, she's the first brand-new character, outside of films, to headline her own comic book series! #1 came out a few weeks ago, and we still have copies left over for those of you who missed it, but this week, keep up with the series by nabbing a copy of...

DOCTOR APHRA #2!

Following her time in the clutches of Darth Vader, Doctor Aphra has barely escaped with her life. If he ever learns of her survival, he'll hunt her to the ends of the galaxy. But for now, it's time for a return to what she does best. With the droids 0-0-0 and BT-1 in tow, she's off in search of rare artifacts from the galactic center to the Outer Rim and everywhere in between. Aphra's got debts to pay after all. Just as long as she can stay one step ahead of the Empire, some Bounty Hunters and just about everyone else in the galaxy!

 


 

Pre-Order And Subscribe to January's and

Feburary's New Releases!

Before we close off the Soundwave Newsletter this week with the complete listings of Wednesday's new releases, we'd like to ask you guys to help us out...
Every week, Greg has to figure out which titles we want to carry in the store. As you all know, we carry quite a bit; While most stores stick to the major sellers (Marvel, DC, Walking Dead, Saga), we try to carry everything from everyone, as much as we can... We try to have a large variety to make sure our friends, family, and customers are well taken care of, but sometimes we can't always do that. Every company is always putting out brand-new titles, and of course we have to always keep Marvel and DC in stock, so sometimes the indies fall to the wayside and we start making cut-backs on certain things.
Every so often, you guys are looking for something we aren't carrying or that we don't buy enough of.

But, we don't want that to happen anymore.
