UPCOMING - November 10 NEW DATE - Ben Hatke signing

PLEASE NOTE: This signing has been changed to a new date of Saturday, November 10! Sorry for any inconvenience!

Ben Hatke, creator of the all-ages bestseller science fiction adventure Zita the Spacegirl, will be appearing at both our Vienna and College Park stores on Saturday, November 10, for his new sequel Legends of Zita the Spacegirl!

Zita is determined to find her way home to earth, following the events of the first book. But things are never simple, and certainly never easy, in space. Zita's exploits from her first adventure have made her an intergalactic megastar! But she's about to find out that fame doesn't come without a price. And who can you trust when your true self is being eclipsed by your public persona, and you've got a robot doppelganger wreaking havoc . . . while wearing your face? Still, if anyone can find their way through this intractible mess of mistaken identity and alien invaders, it's the indomitable Zita, in Legends of Zita the Spacegirl.

Deadpool #1

by Brian Posehn, Gerry Duggan and Tony Moore

When a necromancer starts bringing the US Presidents back to life as zombies, you can't have Captain America be seen decapitating Truman! Time to hire the wisecrackin' merc Deadpool! Yeah, that'll end well! A funny and pun-filled new adventure!

Blacklung HC

by Chris Wright

An astounding and brutal tale of pirates and a lettered man shangaied among, with unexpected turns of savagery and insanity. Compelling and awful, all at the same time, anchored by Wright's cartoony style and flights of surreal fantasy covering religious themes and hallucinations. Unique and amazing!

Iron Man #1

by Kieron Gillen and Greg Land

Tony Stark has to deal with more terrorists who have found his Extremis technology and avenge the death of an old friend. Good thing he can go in disguise by shaving his goatee!

Freelancers #1

by Ian Brill, Joshua Covey, Mike Gagnon and Felipe Smith
Another $1 intro issue, the Freelancers are orphan girls trained in kung fu who work for the most elite patrons! Plus an astounding back up story with art by Smith about their time in the kung fu orphanage!

47 Ronin #1 (of 5)

by Mike Richardson and Stan Sakai

A historical retelling of the tale of the 47 masterless samurai who must suffer in order to fulfill their duty to their former lord and achieve revenge! Great research by Sakai as usual, and a dynamic set up of the corrupt Japanese feudal period!

Shadowman #1

by Justin Jordan and Patrick Zircher

When the first Shadowman disappears battling the forces of supernatural evil 20 years ago, his only son is raised in ignorance of his heritage. But when he discovers his parents may have been murderers, he throws away his father's magical amulet, setting the evil on his own trail again. And amazing art by Zircher as always!

Storm Dogs #1

by David Hine and Doug Braithwaite
A hard scifi adventure, when miners start disappearing on an alien world, a special team of tough investigators is sent to investigate, and deal with two alien races, deadly rains, ferals animals, and local intrigue. A great start with cool characters and tech!

Spaceman HC

by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso
If you didn't listen to us before, now you can get the complete saga all in one deluxe book! Genetically engineered apeman astronauts get caught up in the kidnapping of a celebrity kid, mixed with flashbacks to their time on another world! Amazing action and scifi concepts!
