Check out our link, HERE to see the other covers that will be available for this anniversary issue...

But, that's NOT ALL going on this week that pertains to The Walking Dead...

To expand on this anniversary incentive, Soundwave Comics will be hosting GETTING EVEN WITH NEGAN this Saturday, February 4th!
Between the release of #163, and the up-coming return of the show this month, we figured it's about time we let Negan know how we feel, and get a sweet deal out of it! Whether you've hated him since his debut in The Walking Dead #100 comic, or in the newest season of the show, this is your chance to get some serious enjoyment out of Negan's suffering!

Come in on Saturday, starting from when we open at 11am, and ending when we close-up at 8pm, and we'll have our Negan dart-board set up just for you! You'll get three darts, and all you have to do is hit 'em! The closer to his head, the better! Because these deals will go up to 60% OFF!
And that's on virtually EVERYTHING in the store (Aside from select items).

Plus, anyone who comes in on Saturday, and participate, will get The Walking Dead #163 for FREE!

There is NO REASON to miss out on Saturday's big day! Now, mind you, there isn't a auction or costume contest. So, keep that in mind!

Keep an eye on the official Facebook event page for any and all updates for Saturday, February 4th!

 


 

DARTH MAUL's Backstory is OFFICIALLY Told

in Marvel's Newest Star Wars Mini-Series!

Maul came and went in George Lucas' first film, in his critically controversial prequel trilogy, THE PHANTOM MENACE.
In the film, he was the then-current pupil of Darth Sidious. After killing Obi-Wan's master Qui-Gon Jinn, he was quickly dispatched by the young Kenobi, but caught the intrigue of fans everywhere, whether they liked the movie or not. The character's history has been expanded in what is now considered the Star Wars "Legacy" stories, but the character never truly returned until the fourth and fifth seasons of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, where we not only saw his return, but even met his brother Savage Opress, and learned a little more about where Maul came from.
He can now be seen in season 3 of Star Wars Rebels, on DisneyXD. But, what of his past? We've seen plenty of what happened to him after The Phantom Menace and what he was up to during the rise of the Rebellion.
Well, now, finally, after 18 years, the question of his mysterious past will OFFICIALLY be told!

On Wednesday, February 1st, come into Soundwave Comics and grab yourself the first issue, of five, of Marvel's STAR WARS: DARTH MAUL comic book mini-series!

STL032819

Bred on hate, fear, and anger...steeped in the ways of darkness...and trained to kill. Darth Maul's time as apprentice to Darth Sidious has long been cloaked in shadows, but at last we will reveal his tale of revenge. From writer Cullen Bunn (DEADPOOL KILLS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE, WOLVERINE) and artist Luke Ross (STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, HERCULES) comes a tale of rage unleashed as Darth Maul prepares for his first encounter with the Jedi.

MAJOR 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.
