As a Magic: The Gathering player, this book looks awesome! It combines the excitement of a good gaming endeavor with all the cuteness of Adventure Time!


Big Trouble In Little China #13 (Cover A Jay Shaw), $3.99

Big Trouble In Little China #13 (Cover B Rob Guillory), AR


Fred Van Lente is now writing Big Trouble In Little China! This is very exciting to me. His book The Comic Book History of Comics was great. With Joe Eisma of Morning Glories doing the art, Big Trouble In Little China is sure to continue being amazing.


The Fiction #2 (Of 4)(Cover A David Rubin), $3.99


I read the first issue of The Fiction and really thought it had potential. Now that Comic Con is over, I’m greatly looking forward to reading the second one! After reading Mayday, I’d be happy to read anything by Curt Pires.


Giant Days #5 (Of 12)(Cover A Lissa Treiman), $3.99


This series just keeps getting better and better. Each new issue gives more depth to all of the characters and makes me want to keep reading forever. Not only is it smart and quirky, it also works through important life issues and questions.



Long Walk To Valhalla Original GN, $24.99


This book has just moved to the top of my reading list. Matthew Fox’s art in UFOlogy is stunning and I can’t wait to see what he does with this storyline.


Here’s the description from the Previews website, “There are many things that Rory would like to forget about his childhood growing up in rural Arkansas. Sometimes, he’d even like to forget about Joe, his mentally challenged older brother, both his closest friend and biggest problem. But when a young girl named Sylvia shows up, claiming to be a Valkyrie sent by the Norse god Odin to deliver Rory to Valhalla, he will have to face the past he’s tried to lock away.”


Lumberjanes #16 (Cover A Brooke A. Allen), $3.99

Lumberjanes #16 (Cover B Kat Philbin), AR


Hey, hey, it’s a new issue from the Eisner Award winning series!! That was fun to say. Lumberjanes definitely deserves to be Eisner winning. If you’re not already reading Lumberjanes, start!



Oh Killstrike #3 (Of 4)(Cover A Logan Faerber), $3.99


Just in time for the Comic Con doldrums, Killstrike and Jared infiltrate a comic con and everybody thinks that Killstrike has the best cosplay ever.


Steven Universe Volume 1 TP, $14.99
The first four issues of the great comic based off of the hit TV show! Join Steven and the gems as they save Beach City time after time!
