Big Planet Comics Orbit Newsletter - 21 January 2013

Big Planet Comics

21 January 2012

Best of Year! HC Sale in Bethesda!

We are open today on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. (If anyone is brave enough to venture out during the inauguration crowds!)

Our sale on all hardcovers continues in Bethesda! Tomorrow through the end of January all hardcovers will be 50% off, so come in quick if you've been waiting to pick up something, they go quick!

We have not one but THREE new podcasts for you to enjoy! We did a short one covering the few comics that came out at the end of December, and then we did our Best of 2012 Podcast - which was so long we split it into two episodes! All linked to the right, we cover 12 categories and pick our top 3 in each, then argue out our #1 pick for the year! It's a long argumentative process, but was really fun. Plus everything on our lists is already weeded down to our best of the year, so if you haven't read any of those, we recommend them highly! If you think we left off something important, or made some crazy decision, email us and let us know so we can respond on our next podcast!

Feel free to forward on our newsletter, and please send us any comments or mailing list requests to

- the Big Planet Comics kids



The End Times of Bram and Ben #1

by James Asmus, Jim Festante, Rem Broo

Ignore the terrible cover art! When the rapture comes, one guy gets taken by mistake - then sent back to Earth. Will any one believe him? A very dark comedy!

The One Trick Rip-Off + Deep Cuts HC

by Paul Pope

Paul Pope's early out of print crime saga is collected and colored for the first time! Plus a bunch of his short stories are collected too, also in color. Dig up!

New Avengers #1

by Jonathan Hickman, Steve Epting

The Black Panther encounters a force that will destroy the entire Earth and our whole universe unless he assembles the might of the secret Illuminati, including his foe Namor! More epic scifi tinged superhero action from Hickman!

Savage Wolverine #1

by Frank Cho
Cho returns with dinos, slashing, and a guest appearance by Shanna the She-Devil as Wolverine has to fight to escape the Savage Land!

The Superior Spider-Man #1

by Dan Slott, Ryan Stegman

The insane ending to the Amazing Spider-Man #700 picks up with this all new series, and a sort-of new Spider-Man - perhaps a superior version? Hilarious dialogue as Spidey meets old friends and foes and tries to adapt, plus a crazy ending! Buy it even if (or especially) if you hated #700!

Star Wars #1

by Brian Wood, Carlos D'anda

The Death Star has been destroyed! But now the Rebels need to find a new base with the Imperial Fleet after them! Picking up right after A New Hope! Luke, Leia, Han and Chewie!

The Heart of Thomas HC

by Moto Hagio

One of the first classics from Japanese shojo comics, this romance is set in an all-boys boarding school and finally in print in English!

The Silver Darlings HC

by Will Morris
A deft coming of age story as a young man goes out on his family's fishing boat, determined to challenge their superstitious ways before he heads off to college.
