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!
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

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!
