AvX Party Down

Thanks for everyone who came to our early releases parties for Avengers vs. X-Men #1 last week! Comics were bought, buttons were worn, cupcakes were eaten. Interestingly, most people seemed pretty split about who they were rooting for, or thought would win, with the X-Men being slightly ahead. So now we'll be all high tech! You can answer on our poll on our facebook page, with bonus points given for explaining why you chose one or the other!

And it is only about 1 week until Justin Jordan and Tradd Moore will be signing at our Vienna and College Park stores for the release of the collection of The Strange Talent of Luther Strode, their violent take on superheroes! The limited edition poster to the right will be for sale for only $5! More information is below.

Don't forget, the Big Planet Comics Podcast now has a call-in phone number, so send us some questions or comments! Call 1-703-539-CAST! (1-703-539-2278)

Danger Club #1

by Landry Quinn Walker and Eric Jones

When all the adult superheroes go into space to fight a cosmic menace, but never return, what do the teen sidekicks do? Some try to take over the world, others worry that the Earth is still in danger. A nice twist on the superhero universe, and some good action to start!

Flex Mentallo: Man of Muscle Mystery HC

by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely

The near-legendary miniseries is finally back in print! Flex Mentallo, superpowered muscle man, takes us on a strange trip into the head of Grant Morrison, as Flex tries to discover the reality of his world, even as the comics page changes around him and a dying pop star tries to remember if he created Flex in his head as a child. Hyper reality, crazy action, awesome Quitely art!

Annie Sullivan and the Trials of Helen Keller HC

by Joseph Lambert

Ignatz Award-winner Joseph Lambert tells the tale and life of Annie Sullivan, the formerly-blind activist who taught Helen Keller to sign and was her lifelong companion. A fascinating look at the expectations of the time, and difficult and nuanced relationship between Annie and Helen, all illustrated with a great style showing how Helen slowly learns to name the strange world around her.

Fanboys vs. Zombies #1

by Sam Humphries and Jerry Gaylord

A group of friends get together for their annual Comicon trip, but internal drama has turned some of them against each other. Then, of course, zombie apocalypse! Who would know better how to survive one? But will they stick together or just die alone? Written by new up and comer Sam Humphries (Our Love is Real, Sacrifice).
