Free Comic Book Day is Over, And It’s Time to Look Ahead…!

Last weekend was FCBD’16 and we had a blast, with all of our friends there, and so much going on, it was so much fun, and we hope everyone who attended felt the same way! But, now it’s over, and we’re winding down, still from it, and getting ready for the next thing! We’ve got a pretty awesome summer planned out, and we cannot wait to get started!

First thing’s first, we’ll be holding a MIDNIGHT RELEASE for DC and Marvel Comics titles!

cover99_edited

May 25th is a HUGE day for comics.
From DC Comics, we’ve got the start of DC’s new Rebirth line of comics with the one-shot comic DC Comics: Rebirth #1, and we’ve even got the release of the long-awaited one-shot graphic novel Dark Knight: The Last Crusade, a prequel graphic novel set in Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Universe revealing the events that lead to Batman’s initial retirement before The Dark Knight Returns. PLUS! Justice League #50, where DC Comics will reveal The Joker’s TRUE identity!
From Marvel, we’ve got Captain America: Steve Rogers #1, Nighthawk #1, and the highly-anticipated Spider-Man/Deadpool #5!

Come into Soundwave Comics on Tuesday, May 24th and get in on these books a couple’a hours early! We’ll be hosting a midnight release for ALL of these comics! The festivities start at 9pm, and will end at midnight. You can’t leave the store with any of the May 25th titles until 12:01am. But, we’ll definitely have some sales and deals for everyone to get in on that night to make the time pass by!

More on that, soon!

Doctor Strange is Trying to Stop

The Last Days of Magic From Happening!

So… What’s Deadpool Doing Here?

Within the pages of DOCTOR STRANGE, right now, Marvel presents the major story arc to end all magic: THE LAST DAYS OF MAGIC! While Doctor Strange faces off with a new foe who plans to destroy magic, it looks like an unlikely Merc With a Mouth might be getting involved in his own way…!

STL004473

The Empirikul are waging a war on magic with the goal of wiping the fantastical from the pages of existence. This concerns Deadpool, because some of his best friends are magic.

And you know the old saying “Nothing ever goes wrong in a war.”
That’s a saying, right?

PREACHER Hits AMC at the End of This Month!

Get Acquainted With The Comic Series That Started It All

With a FREE #1 Reprint!

The PREACHER TV series is almost here, and you know we’re pumped for it to finally air! It’ll hit AMC on Sunday night, May 22nd, after the premier of the season 2 finale of Fear The Walking Dead. But, before you see the show’s pilot, come on into Soundwave this week and pick up a FREE reprint of Preacher #1, the start of the smash-hit comic book series by Garth Ennis that inspired the TV series. Follow small Texas town preacher Jesse Custer as he deals with being accidentally possessed by the supernatural creature named Genesis, the infant product of the unauthorized, unnatural coupling of an angel and a demon. Driven by a strong sense of right and wrong, Custer journeys across the United States attempting to literally find God, who abandoned Heaven the moment Genesis was born.

pre1

For those who want to get in on this series, which ended after a five year run back in 2000, the entirety of the 66 issues, 5 specials, and a 4-issue mini-series can be collected through six trade paperback graphic novel collections. If you want to try and catch up, come into the store anytime, or call, e-mail, or Facebook us and we’ll be happy to reorder any and all copies of the trade paperback collections you may need to catch up.

It’s definitely worth the read!

Valiant’s Major Event 4001A.D. Continues in Our Hero’s Very Own

Solo Series, in RAI #13!

4001A.D. kicked off two weeks ago with its first issue of this four issue event, continued through the one-shot 4001A.D.: X-O MANOWAR, and now we get to follow the event through the pages of the main man’s solo book, himself, RAI #13!

STL004248

As 4001 A.D. teeters on the brink, discover the intertwined origins of New Japan’s very fi rst Rai and his creator, Father – the despotic artificial intelligence that would one day threaten us all. And as the truth behind these long-lost beginnings resurfaces, so too will the questions that have eluded mankind for nearly two millennia. How did New Japan come to orbit Earth? Who created Father? And what happened to the nine previous Rai that once swore allegiance to his empire?

The architect behind the summer’s most anticipated crossover event, Matt Kindt (DIVINITY II), joins forces with all-star artist CAFU (IMPERIUM) to uncover the never-before-told story of New Japan’s rise to power…and reveals just how the Valiant Universe of today became the 4001 A.D. of tomorrow!

As you guys can tell, so far, the Newsletter this week is a bit off.
Due to technical difficulties with the website, we’re unable to format the Newsletter the way we want, but we’re managing it. So, bare with us. Coming up is the list of releases for this week, which has usually always had a consistent, unchanged format. But, this time, we’re gonna have to alter it for convenience, but we hope we can get this fixed by the next Newsletter!
