This week, we'll be open our regular hours from Monday to Wednesday, and there WILL BE NEW COMICS on Wednesday! But, come Thursday, on Christmas Eve, we'll be closing at 6pm. This may change, so call to confirm, but on Friday we will be closed, with us returning Saturday with our normal hours.

And for those still stumped for gifts this week, get the comic book/toy collector in your life a Soundwave gift card! We have plenty printed off and ready to be put into people's stockings this Christmas, so don't hesitate to ask about them!

We hope you all have a Merry Christmas, and a overall happy holidays, from the Soundwave crew, and we'll see you guys next time!

Spend The Holidays With The Dark Knight With DKIII #2!

 

The biggest Batman story of the year continues into its second issue as things begin to heat up for our main characters! Fans have been asking, what happened to Batman? This may be the issue that gives us out answers...! Don't miss this monumental conclusion to Frank Miller's highly-successful DARK KNIGHT trilogy! If you haven't picked up #1, yet, do so! We still have copies left of the soft and hardcover editions! 

For those who pick up the hardcovers, they come out two weeks after the softcovers come out, and we will add you to a list to receive a slipcase cover with your purchase of the eighth, and final, issue to collect your hardcover editions in. The slipcase has artwork by Jim Lee, while the hardcovers themselves will have sketch versions of the Jim Lee 1:500 variant covers for each issue. Definitely worth buying for hardcore Batman fans who want something unique in their collections!STK690936

The unexpected finale to the Dark Knight saga continues as Carrie Kelly gets caught... That is, she finds herself... She gets into - - Well, you're just going to have to read it yourself.

The variant covers we will have available, at the store, are...

New DC Comics' "Harley's Little Black Book" Variants

You're NOT Gonna Want to Miss!!

This month was the debut of DC Comics' brand-new Harley Quinn team-up series, HARLEY'S LITTLE BLACK BOOK. The series will see her partnering up with some of DC's greatest heroes and villains in some quirky, fun stories from Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti, the minds behind Harley Quinn's main title! To commemorate the release of this, new, bi-monthly title, DC Comics has been releasing a line of black polybagged variant covers for their biggest titles, done by your favorite artists, featuring Harley with DC's greatest headlining characters.

Inside the black polybags, you will find one of three different versions of the same variant - Penciled, sketched, or finished versions - and you won't know until you open the bag!

This week, DC Comics brings us Harley's Little Black Book variants for...

The Son of Batman Takes Center Stage as We Near The End of

ROBIN WAR!

This week, ROBIN WAR continues through the pages of ROBIN: SON OF BATMAN #7, as we're five parts into this six part event that's shaking up the Batman mythos, specifically the way the DC Universe looks at the role of Robin! 

STK690982

DAMIAN SAVES GOTHAM CITY-YES, AGAIN!
In the aftermath of the cage match in WE ARE ROBIN #7, it's utter chaos as the Court of Owls unleashes hundreds of imprisoned Robins to fight for survival- and to become the one and only Gray Son!

If you haven't yet checked out this major event, catch up by getting ROBIN WAR #1 (of 2), GRAYSON #15, DETECTIVE COMICS #47, and WE ARE ROBIN #7. The event ends next month with ROBIN WAR #2 (of 2), so do not miss the epic conclusion that will most definitely change all of the Robins forever...!

All-New, All-Different Marvel Slows Down,

But Doesn't Calm Down!

With the last days of the holidays here, and the end of the year steadily approaching, Marvel's slowing down on new #1 releases, but that doesn't mean they're calming down a bit with the major stories that are unfolding within the pages of this week's brand-new issues of Marvel's most popular titles, right now!

First off, this week is the start of the All-New, All-Different launch of PATSY WALKER, HELLCAT!

STK691229

Fans of the recently-aired Netflix series Marvel's JESSICA JONES will recognize Patsy as Trish Walker, Jessica's adopted sister, in the show. In the comics, she's a full-fledged superhero, herself, known as Hellcat, and much like in the show, she's famous! But, for a somewhat different reason... Patsy is the star of a comic book series! Yes, this one, but in the comic itself, too!

PATSY WALKER has managed to escape her past, her enemies and Hell itself (literally), but nothing compares to job hunting in New York City! Between trying to make rent and dodging (literal) bullets, Patsy barely has time to deal with her mother's exploitative romance comics about her childhood resurfacing, much less how they start to interfere with her work and dating life. As she goes from living a double life to a triple, what the Hell is Patsy Walker supposed to do? Raise your (literal) claws for PATSY WALKER, AKA HELLCAT!

Keep up with Patsy's life in this new on-going series, and check out the continuing adventures of her fellow Marvel Heroes!

And if you haven't picked up the #1's, or any of the other issues for those that are passed #2, we still have a few copies left, so hurry in! These are some major titles you're NOT going to want to miss out on collecting! Extraordinary X-Men, Venom: Space Knight, and Daredevil are monumental, and game-changing titles for those characters, with X-Men proving to be an important title going forward with its ties to the larger Mutant/Inhuman dilemma in the Marvel Universe.

Meanwhile, Star-Lord is giving Peter Quill a solid origin story, Spider-Woman is providing a new kind of dynamic for the Marvel Universe, and Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur introduce a brand-new character to the Marvel Universe fold! 

This week is also the release of DEADPOOL #4!

Like with the last three issues of Deadpool, Marvel will also be releasing a "secret comic" variant cover. Check those out, as they tell their own, separate Deadpool adventure! They're just cover price, and worth having in your Deadpool collection!

Can't Get Enough Star Wars?

VADER DOWN Continues This Week!

With STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS in theaters, right now, the Star Wars hype is unbelievably high right now, and we're sure you're all going to want to find something to quench your Star Wars addiction while we wait another year for Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One to hit theaters... Well, come on in this week, as Darth Vader #14 finally hits shelves to continue the monumental event VADER DOWN. It's the fourth part in this six part Star Wars event that sees the Rebel Alliance take on Darth Vader and his partner Doctor Aphra, and her droids, in the battle that will prove Vader's power is nothing to mess with! 

STK691064

And don't forget to pick up the connecting variant cover, too!

STK691546

Star Wars: Vader Down is Marvel Comics' first cross-over Star Wars event since they got the licence to publish the Star Wars comics at the beginning of this year. It began with the one-shot issue Star Wars: Vader Down #1, then continued through the pages of Star Wars: Darth Vader #13, and then Star Wars #13. Next month will see the last two parts come out in Star Wars #14 and Star Wars: Darth Vader #15, before both books go back to their separate ways with brand-new story arcs.

If you haven't been keeping up with the Star Wars comics, it's NOT TOO LATE! Vader Down is a great jumping-on point, but we've also been making sure to keep up with our backstock for those fans who wanted to wait until after the movie to start following the rest of the new material within the Star Wars Universe, and we'll help you find everything you need to catch up! We don't want to see anybody fall behind on some of the best Star Wars stories current being told!
