CHRISTMAS SPOTLIGHT!

DC Comics Book, DVD, & Blu-Ray Collector Slipcase Box Set

Every week, going up to the week of Christmas, we'll give you guys some suggestions for your Christmas lists, or for ideas for the comic book fans in your lives!

A couple of months ago, DC began a new line of hardcover trades that not only reprinted the most iconic DC Comics storylines, but also came with the DVD and Blu-Ray versions of the movies that adapted their stories.

DC plans to release several of these once a year, but before the years are over, if you missed out on them the first time, then you'll be able to get them this time, all together, in a slipcase collector's set!

The slipcase collector's box set collects THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN with SUPERMAN: DOOMED; BATMAN: BLACK & WHITE with BATMAN: GOTHAM KNIGHT; BATMAN: YEAR ONE with the DVD & Blu-Ray of the same name; JLA: EARTH-2 with JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON TWO EARTHS; JUSTICE LEAGUE, VOL. 1: ORIGIN with JUSTICE LEAGUE: WAR; WONDER WOMAN, VOL. 1: GODS & MORTALS by George Perez with WONDER WOMAN, and all of which comes with the collector's slipcase to put them in.

The Winter of BATMAN Begins With

BATMAN: EUROPA!

This is a major winter for great Batman stories, beginning with BATMAN: EUROPA, the highly-anticipated project from comic artist superstar Jim Lee, and writers Brian Azzerello and Metteo Casali. 

STK688726

The impossible has happened and Batman is on the verge of being taken down by an enemy he cannot defeat: a virus for which there is no cure! And the only hope for his salvation is The Joker! Who infected Batman, what does the Clown Prince of Crime know, and how will the Dark Knight get that information? Together, the enemies crisscross Europe, desperate to find answers before time runs out.

The Eternal Warrior is BACK!

STK688438

Valiant's ever-vigilant Eternal Warrior might've met his end at the end of Book of Death, but he's not done fighting for the Earth! For five millennia, the Eternal Warrior has shaped history at the end of his sword. He's razed empires, toppled civilizations, and broken armies as an immortal soldier in service to the Earth.

But now, the Eternal Warrior has been torn from the world he once protected and finds himself stranded in a hostile alien landscape unlike any he's faced before. Separated from his earthly environs, can history's deadliest soldier survive a realm far older, far deadlier, and fare more ruinous than anything he's ever encountered?

Beyond Earth lies eternity...

Comic book superstar Robert Venditti brings Gilad back to the forefront of Valiant's universe in an all-new on-going series that will pick up where Book of Death left off with Earth's sworn protector! And you can get it for HALF OFF! That's right! Try out one of Valiant's newest #1 issues for half the price! We're sure you're gonna be hooked! We believe in Valiant, and we think you will, too!

"Everyone needs to be reading Valiant comics. They're reshaping the way we look at superhero comics, as a genre, today, and redefining what it means to have a shared comic book universe and continuity." ~ Comic Book John, Soundwave employee

What's New in Indies?

I HATE FAIRYLAND #2

The hottest indie title of last month, and the most anticipated second issue of this month, is I HATE FAIRYLAND. I Hate Fairyland follows Gertrude, a little girl who wants to live in a cute, colorful, fun world, but when she gets her wish, she soon regrets ever wanting to leave home. Decades pass, and while Gertrude still looks like a little girl, her spite and hatred for Fairyland has grown, as she still has yet to find her way home. And with that, her patience grows thin and she's prepared to burn through Fairyland, if that's what it takes! 

It was such a fun book, with a lot of great reception from our customers, here at the store, and we can't wait to jump into the next exciting issue of this smash hit mini-series!

Just like last issue, there will be an uncensored, obscene variant cover that will be limited! We had people clamoring to get it last time, so make sure you don't miss out this time around!

ALSO! We recently just got in the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund variant cover for #1 this passed week. Next time you come into the store, check it out!

Don't miss what is SURE TO BE a Mark Millar classic!

PRETTY DEADLY #6

Soundwave fan favorite creative team of Kelly Sue DeConnick and Emma Rios reunite to continue the adventures of Deathface Ginny, starting a brand-new story arc for their characters. The survivors of the battle against Death enter a new century, where they face fresh violence and the horrors of war.
