New Comics For Wednesday 21st of January


WOAH! Plenty going on this week. We are edging closer to a official moving date (we'll update once we are certain). Then of course there is the return of the ALL STAR WOMENS COMICS BOOK CLUB for their January Meet Up this Saturday at 1000 Pound Bend Cafe. Coupled with the MELBOURNE COMICS QUARTERLY LAUNCH on Sunday at Gasolina and then in time for an Australia Day BBQ is the Squishface 3rd Birthday Celebrations! Massive week and that's all before we even get to the comics!

Hopefully the comic of one of the great Star Trek rips be as good as the film with GALAXY QUEST JOURNEY CONTINUES #1. Continuing a theme with this week's selection MILLENNIUM #1 gives us the comic we were looking for about 15 years ago. The next chapter in the excellent "done in one" master spy series, BLACK WIDOW TP VOL 02 TIGHTLY TANGLED WEB is out. A chance to you to check out Saga's artist supreme, Fiona Staples earlier work in the new printing of NORTH 40 TP. BOOM sound like they are onto another winner with BURNING FIELDS #1 a supernatural thriller set in the oil fields of the Middle East. After years of mini's, ZOMBIES VS ROBOTS #1 sees the start of the titles first ongoing series! IVAR TIMEWALKER #1 sees yet another great creative team on a new Valiant series. MAGNETO TP VOL 02 REVERSALS continues Cullen Bunn's excellent examination of the inner workings of one Marvel's great villains.

See something there you can't do without, just let us know! :D

ALL STAR LEGENDS Presents:BIG GUY AND RUSTY



Wrapped to see the never re-printed Burley Man published, Shaolin Cowboy series finally collected last month and the new epic Dark Horse series seeing print in hardcover very soon, we thought now was the perfect time to showcase one of Geof Darrow's other great works, BIG GUY AND RUSTY!



Darrow joined with the still in form Frank Miller, tells a truly epic visual tale of East and West's most advanced technological guardians coming together to defeat the world against a primordial evil that seems set on crushing the world (starting with Tokyo) under it's crawled heel.



Darrow's art, despite there not being much of it around is instantly recognisable and should be treasured when featured in a complete story. His work on this series, is stunning and painfully detailed. When viewed in the "Treasury" format in which this tale is presented is a true comic art feast. This story shows the destruction of Tokyo City in such a way you'd believe you are witnessing art that showcases every single brick and piece of mortar torn from the city's foundations as the villain turns the city into it's playground.

With Darrow, Miller tells a story that was no doubt trying to create subtext about man's obsession and folly with playing God, the East and West's arms race and our reliance on modern technology but at the end of the day passes as the greatest make believe battle session you never had as an eight year old, starring you favourite Jumbo robot and cheap plastic Dinosaur figure after consuming the world's largest glass of red cordial.



As always the ALL STAR LEGEND will be available to 30 days (or until stock sells out) at the discounted price. As this will be limited stock promotion there is strictly “no holds” on the legend. The early bird catches the comic. No further discount applies to the book as there is a big chance the comic will already be cheaper than the US cover price! The discount also only applies to the volumes listed, not the entire set of trades.

If you have any questions, you know where to ask them. You can buy the legend from this Wednesday 14th of January.


All Star Legends. The legendary titles of the highest recommendation.

New Comics For Wednesday 14th of January



Second week into the year and already things are picking up steam. We are still feverishly fitting out the new store at 53 QUEEN ST and just look at this week's picks of comics!

Returning to were the comics began and gearing up for that new film later this year, it's STAR WARS #1. Fist fights have never been this X-treme, you know how we know this...because of the X in MORTAL KOMBAT X #1! Another comic adaptation based on a video game that was based on a comic with FABLES THE WOLF AMONG US #1. Friends don't let friends wear loincloths or chainmail bikinis in CONAN RED SONJA #1. BOOM BOX 2014 MIX TAPE #1 as a showcase of some sweet BOOM titles such as Teen Dog and Lumberjanes will be a winner. Terry Moore's latest installment of his creatures of the night series RACHEL RISING TP VOL 05 NIGHT COMETH is here. Following that lead AMERICAN VAMPIRE HC VOL 07 gives us another chilling chapter in this undead history lesson. While on the subject of American history MANIFEST DESTINY TP VOL 02 shares with us the real thrilling and terribly dangerous untold tales of New Frontier. Comics on MICHAEL JORDAN HC BULL ON PARADE, yeah we're down for that. Hands down one of the most tragic and captivating crime reads of last year is collected in Lapham's STRAY BULLETS TP VOL 06 KILLERS.

Lots of quality. If there is something extra there you need, you should let us know! :D

New Comic and Trade Prices


We've had a string of good news to share with you since Christmas but it is with a heavy heart we pass on some unfortunate news.

If you've been paying attention to currency exchange rates recently or you may have read headlines telling you that the Australian Dollar has hit a five year low against the US Dollar. In fact, since July last year it has dropped almost 15 cents. We've been doing our best to hold off to see if there would be any improvement but all indications are that it doesn't seem likely at this stage. Therefore, as a business who receives 95% of our product through a US supplier, we're going to have to raise prices across stock.

We're in this for you, our customers, you're the ones who make this whole thing worth it, so we'd like to be as open and honest regarding decisions like this rather than just springing them on you at the register next time you visit the store. We also agree that it isn't the best timing given we've just announced our move to new premises but we'd like to assure you that these two things are not related, the move has been in the works for a while now and a big part of it is to compensate for the growth you've helped us achieve through word of mouth. Please know that this wasn't an easy decision to make and it's one we've been struggling with for a couple of months now.

The new pricing will come into effect for comics and trades from the shipment expected on the 21st of January onwards. Comics and trades that are currently aside in people's orders will be marked at the older prices. To help avoid confusion it would be greatly appreciated if anyone with outstanding orders can try to pick their orders up at their earliest convenience.

We are totally understanding that this is a luxury industry and that people need to work their comic spending into a budget. If you need any help reassessing your current Standing Order by making a few cuts here and there, please let us know and we'll help any way we can.

We're more than happy to answer any questions you have regarding this, so if you're in the store on a non shipment day, feel free to chat to one of us about it, email the store or PM us on Facebook.

THE WEDDING RINGER PREVIEW SCREENING DOUBLE PASS GIVEAWAY!


Doug Harris (Josh Gad) is a loveable but socially awkward groom-to-be with a problem: he has no best man. With less than two weeks to go until he marries the girl of his dreams (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting), Doug is referred to Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc., a company that provides flattering best men for socially challenged guys in need. What ensues is a hilarious wedding charade as they try to pull off the big con, and an unexpected budding bromance between Doug and his fake best man Jimmy. Only at the Movies! January 22
