Superman Fights His Way To The Start of SAVAGE DAWN!

It's ALL BEEN LEADING UP TO THIS!

Finishing off the mythos-changing events of what began as the "Truth" arc, DC Comics is making its march into the SAVAGE DAWN!

The final piece to the "Truth" arc, which has run through the pages of Superman, Action Comics, Batman/Superman, and Superman/Wonder Woman the last six months, will be Superman/Wonder Woman #24, which comes out this week...

STK690995

...which will lead into SUPERMAN ANNUAL #3, and that will kick off the next major Superman arc SAVAGE DAWN!

STK691528

This is NOT an annual to miss, Superman and Vandal Savage have been on a collision course for centuries. As Kal-El struggles to survive against this barbarian's attacking hordes, DC will reveal the events that led to Vandal Savage's creation - and his unexpected connection to Krypton. Immortals gather to put an end to the Last Son of Krypton so Earth may live!

With the way the Superman titles have been building to this whole thing, Savage Dawn is going to be the major Superman event that will test Superman's character to his core!

 

 

The Merc With The Mouth & The Mutant Messiah Are Back

Together, AT LAST,

In...

DEADPOOL & CABLE: SPLIT SECOND!

STK691806

Call them a duo with a special kind of dynamics... Call them the odd couple, but with guns... Call them 90's comics distilled down into two characters - DEADPOOL AND CABLE ARE BACK, BABY!

That's right-The Merc with the Mouth and the Soldier with the Scowl are together again in this all-new, three issue series!

When Cable gets a vision of a terrible future set off by the death of one man, he knows he must protect him no matter what! I'll get you three guesses who's been hired to kill that guy... Go on, guess!

The fan favorite team of Fabian Nicieza & Reilly Brown have reunited to get the gang back together-and it feels so good!

Before They Were Brothers, Before They Were Enemies, They

Were Simply...

OBI-WAN & ANAKIN!

Marvel Comics presents a brand-new five issue STAR WARS mini-series, set before the events of Star Wars - Episode II: Attack of the Clones focusing on the struggling master/apprentice relationship of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker.

This is the first piece of official canon material set between The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones! 

STK694184

 Before their military heroism in the Clone Wars, before their tragic battle on Mustafar, and many decades before their final confrontation on the Death Star...they were Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan learner, Anakin Skywalker. It's been a few years since Obi-Wan pledged to train the young "chosen one," but even as they have grown closer through training, it has been a difficult road. Now, called to a remote planet for assistance, Master and Padawan may be pushed to the breaking point.

Writer Charles Soule (Lando, She-Hulk, Daredevil) and artist Marco Checchetto (Star Wars: Shattered Empire, Avengers World, Punisher) bring us a tale of the Jedi at the height of their power...

 

 

ROCKET RACCOON & GROOT #1

STK694186

There's a new criminal mastermind in the galaxy, and it's...ROCKET RACCOON?! How did this happen? SERIOUSLY, HOW DID THIS HAPPEN, YOU GUYS??? Groot knows, but he's not talking! Well, he is talking, but all he's saying is...oh, you know. Diabolical danger, madcap mysteries and astonishing adventure abound as SKOTTIE YOUNG and FILIPE ANDRADE return to tell tall tail tales of Rocket Raccoon, now with the adorable, arboreal Groot along for the ride! If you love adventure, animals, outer space and just about anything in between, this is the book for you!

HOWARD THE DUCK #3

STK693587

The entire universe is after Howard! Is it because he's very handsome? Charming? Yes! No, wait. Of course not! Sorry... Howard is actually very difficult to be around sometimes. Also, it's hard to tell if he's handsome since he's a duck.

Plus the conclusion of the Howard/Gwenpool backup!

What's New in Indies!?

BELLADONNA #0

Boundless Comics

(W) Mike Costa (A/CA) Ignacio Calero

The all-new Belladonna epic begins here!  It's the story of a Viking warrior and her army of shield maidens in a century of massive upheaval in the Celtic north.  Belladonna uses her ferocious bloodlust and supernatural strength to wage war against the cruel Picts and mythical beasts, surrounded by a bleak and unforgiving landscape.  But bloodletting and supernatural beasts aside, Belladonna is also a meticulously researched evocation of the pre-Roman British isles during the  9th century. It was a century of blood and fire, kingdoms rising and falling in the contest between the Vikings and the Picts, with Belladonna and her irregular war-party of women fighters are caught in the middle.  With the breathtaking art of Ignacio Calero, this sweeping, sexy epic is not one to be missed!  This super-size first issue also features a cover gallery of her previous series as well as an archive story from Raulo Caceres in color for the first time!

CODE PRU #1

Avatar Press, Inc.

(W) Garth Ennis (A/CA) Raulo Caceres

Garth Ennis and Raulo Caceres bring you a black humor horror book unlike anything you've read!  Pru wanted nothing more than to join the FDNY and help people as a paramedic.    However, that was not to be, as she gets assigned to a special unit that tends to the monsters that live in modern day New York.  Vampires, zombies, ghouls and all the creepy things that live around us in he shadows.  But no one told her that was her assignment.  Learning on-the-job is much more challenging with the supernatural!  This series is a lead-in to the ongoing monthly Code Pru stories running in an anthology to be announced shortly!  Raulo Caceres' art never looked better than in the luscious black and white of this series.

IMPORTANT Soundwave UPDATE!

Now, before we close out the final Soundwave Newsletter of 2015, we wanted to remind everyone about our unusual schedule over the New Year's weekend...

And, DO NOT WORRY! None of this will affect the new comic releases!

From today, Monday, December 28th, through Wednesday December 30th, we will be running on our regular hours. Those are...

Mon.: 11am-7pm

Tues.: 11am-7pm

Wed.: 11am-9pm

But, beginning on New Year's Eve, Thursday, December 31st, and going through Saturday, January 2nd, we will still be opening at 11am, but on all three days we will be closing early at 6pm. So, please keep that in mind, especially for those who can't make it until late on the weekend.

From Sunday, January 3rd to Tuesday, January 5th, we will be closed at all times.

As mentioned, this WILL NOT affect new comic book shipments. Comics WILL be in on time for their Wednesday releases.

We will be closing the store for three days to take care of the final touches on the re-arranging and organization projects around the store. We're looking to make the store more open and accessible to all customers, and make it easier to shop in. We thank you guys for being patient with us over the last few months as we've started getting ready for this big re-arranging project.

If you have any questions, just call us, e-mail us, or hit us up on Facebook, and we'll get to you as soon as we can.

Thanks, everyone! And have a Happy New Year!

See you all soon!
