The Prelude to DC Comics' Fall Event Hits This Week!

DC Comics' second year into their Rebirth initiative has been huge, with a handful of self-contained cross-over events between people's favorite lines of comics, or DC's hottest characters. Starting with Justice League vs. Suicide Squad, DC has since given fans Superman Reborn, Batman/The Flash: The Button, and Titans/Teen Titans/Deathstroke: The Judas Contract. Next up, DC Comics presents a multiverse-wide Batman event in the form of DARK NIGHTS: METAL, which will be headed off by superstar New 52 Batman creative team Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo. It's described as the event that the both of them have been working on since the dawn of their work on the main Batman series.
But, before we get there, they will be presenting fans with two one-shot preludes this month and next month to get us that much further to finding out how Batman, and the rest of the DC Universe, get sucked into this monumental storyline! This week, DC Comics presents...

DARK DAYS: THE FORGE #1

STL046549

DARKNESS COMES TO THE DC UNIVERSE WITH THE MYSTERY OF THE FORGE! Aquaman, The Flash and more of DC's pantheon of heroes suspect Batman of hiding a dark secret that could threaten the very existence of the multiverse! It's an epic that will span generations-but how does it connect to the origins of one of DC's most legendary heroes?
The great comics event of summer 2017 is about to begin courtesy of superstar writers Scott Snyder and James Tynion III and illustrated by a master class of comics artists: Andy Kubert, Jim Lee and John Romita Jr.! You do not want to miss this one!

And, for this exciting release, Soundwave will be holding a midnight release party on Tuesday, June 13th. You'll be able to buy and read the book a NIGHT EARLY! For a full, detailed explanation of our intentions for the night, and some of the rules about purchasing the book a night early, check out our article covering the whole thing HERE.

Judge Dredd Gets Represented This Week

With The Return of Fan-Favorite Titles!

Judge Dredd is BACK in a big way, this week! Being a character from a little-known overseas publisher, it's fantastic seeing how much of a huge impact he's had over here in the states! But, who can blame people from falling in love with the post-apocalyptic Mega-City Judge? Especially after mainstream media outings like 2012's DREDD film, and great, unprecedented, cross-overs with the most insane characters from across comics and sci-fi! And this week, fans of both of those sides of the Dredd universe are going to get a HUGE treat!

First up, we have 2000AD's continuation of the Dredd film sequel line of one-shot stories with...

DREDD: ANDERSON - THE DEEP END #1

STL048456

When the dust settles, the body count rises! Continuing the story of the cult 2012 movie Dredd. After the brutal day in which Ma Ma and her gang were brought down telepath-Judge Anderson is trying to adjust to the brutal life of a Street Judge. After investigating a claim of demonic possession, she finds herself at odds with a merciless drug cartel. Soon after, when lethal radioactive storms from the post-apocalyptic wasteland known as the Cursed Earth hit the city, they bring more than just dust into Mega-City One. When unexplained killings coincide with the storms, Judge Dredd is forced to hunt a mysterious mutant and take his ruthless brand of justice into the Cursed Earth.

 

And, after MUCH anticipation, and SO MUCH WAITING, the final chapter to the fan favorite cross-over mini-series is HERE!

 

PREDATOR VS. JUDGE DREDD VS. ALIENS

STL020610

Road trip! The mad, gene-splicing scientist Dr. Reinstöt is having the best summer ever as he hits the road toward Mega-City One. He's got a sweet ride: a stolen Predator ship! He's got his new BFF, the murderous Archbishop Emoji, riding shotgun. And he's got snacks . . . or maybe he is a snack . . . for his homegrown crew of xenomorphs. Spoilsport Judge Dredd and his killjoy Predator friends are hot on their tail, trying to ruin everyone's fun, but Dr. Reinstöt has a secret weapon that will keep the party going. Until the end of time! Which might be tomorrow, if Reinstöt has his way. Either way, it's going to be a killer time.

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.

Going forward, we'll provide you guys with a link to PREVIEWSworld that'll show you all of the new #1 issues that'll be hitting all comic book store shelves in a few months' time. If you look the list of new releases over and see something you'd like us to get in for you, or to add to your subscription/pull list, let us know!
You can call us at 843-821-8810, or message us on Facebook on our official Soundwave Comics fan page, or e-mail us at soundwaverecords@aol.com and let us know which titles you'd like for us to get for you all.

Keep that in mind, no one will be at the store for that whole weekend, but we'll be RIGHT BACK, of course, the following Monday and we'll be ready to go, as usual! And, that Wednesday, we've got a big launch party for the highly-anticipated PETER PARKER, THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #1 planned, so keep an eye out for updates on that!

STL047341

If you are going to HeroesCon and are worried about finding something to be signed, starting tomorrow, we'll have a display of great comics, variants, and books by some of the attending creators. Be sure and pick up a few cool pieces that you may not have had the option to get before to add to your collection!

One of the items we'll have for you guys to grab is the one in twenty-five variant cover of The New 52 JUSTICE LEAGUE #39, done by Charleston local Babs Tarr. Grab yourself a copy and we'll see you in Babs' line at HeroesCon!
