Full_Soundwave_Logo

Thank You, Everyone...!

Hey, guys! We're back with a late Newsletter this week, but before we get into the main attraction, we wanted to thank everyone for coming out over the weekend for Free Comic Book Day. It was a huge success, and we loved seeing all of our friends and customers there for the big event. Especially since you guys got to meet our fantastic guests. We especially want to thank those guests, Chuck Brown, Matthew D. Smith, Christine Brunson, and Xio Sosa! Not to mention, our cosplayers, Alicia Jo (Squirrel Girl), Cody Miles (Twelfth Doctor), and Rigel Kocur (The Flash), who stuck it out with us throughout the whole day and helped us with customers and traffic. And HUGE props to our event coordinator Brook Nichols for setting the whole thing up! We definitely couldn't have done it without her, and we're excited to see what she comes up with next!
So, again, thank you EVERYONE. We hope you all had a great time, and we can't wait to see you all again, soon!

Now, again, we're putting this Newsletter out a bit late, this week. We'll be back on the ball, again, this weekend, but until then we wanted to cover one major thing of the week we want everyone to give a try!

STAR WARS: THE SCREAMING CITADEL #1

STL044391

"THE SCREAMING CITADEL" - Part 1
Rebel pilot and rogue archaeologist wander side by side into the darkest shadows of the galaxy as Luke Skywalker reluctantly teams up with Doctor Aphra! The Doctor makes Luke an offer he can't afford to pass up...one that leads him to a very rare gathering at the heart of the infamous Screaming Citadel. Will Luke find what he's looking for? Can Aphra be trusted? Or will they both wind up victims of the Citadel's Queen?

This issue is just a one-shot issue, of course, but you can follow the rest of this five part event in the pages of STAR WARS and STAR WARS: DOCTOR APHRA. The issues to pick up are...

Part 2 - STAR WARS #31 (5/17)
Part 3 - STAR WARS: DOCTOR APHRA #7 (5/31)
Part 4 - STAR WARS #32 (6/14)
