Midnight Release This Tuesday for CIVIL WAR II #3!

This Wednesday will see the release of one of the most IMPORTANT Marvel comics of 2016! It's the half-way mark for CIVIL WAR II as Marvel presents another major blow to the superheroic community within the Marvel Universe!

SOMEONE WILL FALL!

Civil_War_II_Vol_1_3_Textless

Who will it be? How will it happen? What will it mean for the Marvel Universe going forward?

Well, come into Soundwave Comics this Tuesday, July 12th and buy your copy a NIGHT EARLY and find out, first-hand!
We'll be holding a midnight release party for CIVIL WAR II #3 for all of our customers who want to get first dibs on what is surely to be the most highly-controversial issue, yet!

We will have copies of Civil War II #3 regular cover and EXTREMELY LIMITED quantities of the Civil War II #3 Midnight Release cover that night. You will be able to buy all your Marvel and DC titles for the week at the Midnight Release event.

You DO NOT want to miss the chance to read this comic first.
If major news outlets get the story, there is the chance of spoilers everywhere on the following morning. This is the major turning-point of the event as Marvel promises the death of a major superhero...!

FROM MARVEL: "This is the one everyone will be talking about! One of the biggest heroes in the Marvel Universe will fall! Who it is and how and why will divide fans for years to come. Will the heroes of the Marvel Universe survive the unthinkable happening? The fallout to this issue is enormous!"

Soundwave is excited to give you the opportunity to add a rare variant cover of a "death" issue to your collection. Much like other midnight releases that Soundwave has done, we are offering one-night-only sales and incentives as you wait to get your comics at midnight.

Here's the details:


- We will close at 7 PM on Tuesday night, like usual. We will come back, and reopen at 9 PM, to 12 PM, for the Midnight Release.


- While supplies last, customers are encouraged to pick up a copy of the Civil War II #3 regular cover and a copy of the Midnight Release wraparound variant cover.
(Limit 1 copy per cover, per person. First come, first served.)


- For one-night-only, if you haven't been reading Civil War II, you may purchase issues #0 and #1 for 50% off. (Limit one copy each per person)


- While supplies last, EVERYONE who attends the Midnight Release event will receive a Marvel collector lithograph by artist Michael Cho.


- We can't forget our DC Comics fans! We had a Marvel back issue sale during our DC Rebirth Midnight Release a few weeks ago, SO... We are doing a DC back issue sale during our Marvel Midnight Release.


- If you haven't read DC Rebirth or any of the new DC titles yet, then you CAN'T MISS being here on Tuesday night, July 12th. From 9 PM to 12 PM, we will be offering all DC Rebirth titles released in June for 50% off. Buy as many as you want, BUT limit to one cover per title per person (Example: you can buy ONE copy of Batman #1, ONE copy of Aquaman #1, ONE copy of Superman #1, etc for 50% off). If you already have a Batman #1, this is the chance to add an extra copy to your collection for cheap.


- You can come buy your comics, get the free lithograph, shop the sales, and then either hang out with us and read, or leave and come back at 12:00 to pick up your stuff. We ask that you be cool and not post spoilers online. Some of our friends won't get to read the issue until the next day.


That's pretty much the deal.
YOU get the important comics FIRST at our Midnight Release events. We always wanna keep comic collecting exciting and fun. See you on July 12th!

For updates, if you have questions, or if you just want to let us know you'll definitely be coming, click HERE for our Facebook event page where you can do ALL of that!

DC Comics' REBIRTH Line For July Expands With

Fan-Favorite Characters and...

a New Super-Man?

DC-Comics-Universe-Rebirth-Checklist-June-2016-Solicitations

Last month, DC started off small with just 10 new releases. Now, starting this month, they'll be slow-rolling the new releases until their line is back to full capacity by the end of the year. Last week, we had one new addition in Bryan Hitch's JUSTICE LEAGUE: REBIRTH, which set the seeds for what's to come in the title following Geoff Johns' monumental 50 issue run.

This week, DC Comics presents us THREE new additions to their Rebirth line, two of which focus on everyone's favorite Green Lantern HAL JORDAN, along with everyone's favorite Robin, Dick Grayson, who will be returning to the role of NIGHTWING! But, the third is an interesting addition, as it will expand on the Superman family roster and introduce fans to a new hero in the DC Universe, China's NEW SUPER-MAN!

STL010749

HAL JORDAN & THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS: REBIRTH #1

(One-Shot)

In the absence of the Green Lantern Corps, Sinestro and his fear-inducing Yellow Lantern Corps patrol the universe as its sole protectors-but deep in space, a green light still burns. Harnessing the remainder of his will, Hal Jordan must become a one-man GL Corps to defeat his greatest foe and restore freedom to the cosmos.

STL010753

NIGHTWING: REBIRTH #1

(One-Shot)

He's been Robin, Batman, a spy, a ghost. Now, Dick Grayson returns to Gotham City to reclaim the life that was taken from him. But when a new evil threatens those he loves most, Nightwing faces being torn away from home once again in order to destroy the dark force once and for all.

STL010757

NEW SUPER-MAN #1

(On-Going)

"MADE IN CHINA" Chapter One: An impulsive act of heroism thrusts an arrogant young man into the limelight of Shanghai as China begins to form its own Justice League of powerful heroes.

This week's NIGHTWING: REBIRTH #1 cover B variant is by super-star former Batgirl artist Babs Tarr!

STL010775

We've invited her to our Second Annual Soundwave Mini-Con, and we hope she'll be there. You're gonna want to grab a copy before we run out to possibly get her to sign!

 

JUST A REMINDER ABOUT REBIRTH:

Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps: Rebirth #1 and Nightwing: Rebirth #1 are just one-shot issues.
They're one-and-done stories that will come out before the actual #1's that start the new on-going titles. The one-shots cover what you need to know about the new on-going comic book series, such as where the characters are in their life, and where the series will be headed both concept and plot-wise, and they're doing this for MOST of their Rebirth line of comics. This makes it easy on fans with limited budgets, or who are on the fence about some titles, decide which books they want to pick up, and which ones they don't.
Just want to make sure everyone knows so they don't miss any of the new #1 issues that'll come out in two weeks.
