Dear Mike,

STORE SIGNING this Sunday!
Sunday, November 3rd from 12-4 meet Chris Giarrusso!  He is the writer/artist of G-Man.  

"Here is an absolute delight, a volume that will be shelved with children's titles, but should definitely be sought out by superhero lovers of any age. The visual style is completely charming, creating an amusingly detailed world that young readers can explore over and over."

- Publisher's Weekly

With Halloween just around the corner pick up a great Zombie Game to play with friends!

The Walking Dead Board Game: The Best Defense

 is a cooperative board game in which players take on the roles of Rick, Glenn, Daryl, Michonne, and other characters. The Survivors must defend four key locations from Walkers - the Farm, the Prison, the Town and the Highway - in order to stay alive. The game board is assembled at random for each game, providing for variability in the locations; a 25-card resource deck - containing either Equipment, Allies, Food or Ammunition - is placed at random on one of the locations.Walkers and other calamities are triggered in different locations by a 48-card Event deck (every card is unique!), which players draw from each round. They must then figure out how to minimize the effects of these Events, using dice to resolve combat and determine the outcome of some events. Survivors can work together to combine their combat abilities or split up to cover more ground. If the Survivors don't clear the Walkers out of a location, they'll lose resources - and if any resource deck runs out, the players lose the game. Thus, players need to keep the Walkers at bay while not using up too many resources themselves.


Unlike most cooperative games, 

The Walking Dead Board Game: The Best Defense

 includes a leadership role that a player can take for one or more rounds. Each player character has a unique leadership ability that provides a bonus while that character is in charge.
The Walking Dead Board Game: The Best Defense
 includes two gameplay modes. In the "Beginner" mode, players share all information on their Event cards so that the leader and others can take everything happening in the game into consideration. In "Expert" mode, players may 


 share their Event cards, which means that leaders might make decisions that are detrimental to other players - but those players can defy the leader (for a cost) and make their own moves. Why would they do this?In addition to just trying to stay alive, each player has a secret "Ulterior Motive" card that specifies a mission for that player. If he completes that mission, then he earns a partial victory, even if the Survivors as a group would otherwise lose. The Ulterior Motive cards are recommended only for advanced players who like a bit of conflict in their co-operative games.

     The Sandman:Overture #1



Twenty-five years since THE SANDMAN changed the landscape of modern comics, Neil Gaiman's legendary series is back!


THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE heralds New York Times best-selling writer Neil Gaiman's return to the art form that made him famous, ably abetted by artistic luminary JH Williams III (BATWOMAN, PROMETHEA), whose lush, widescreen images provide an epic scope to The Sandman's origin story. From the birth of a galaxy to the moment that Morpheus is captured, THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE will feature cameo appearances by fan-favorite characters such as The Corinthian, Merv Pumpkinhead and, of course, the Dream King's siblings: Death, Desire, Despair, Delirium, Destruction and Destiny.

 Small Press Review  

Comics you may not know about but should!









REX, ZOMBIE KILLER tells the story of a hyper-intelligent Golden Retriever named Rex, a sign language-speaking gorilla, and a small pack of animals making a perilous cross-country journey to find safety...and a home.


Rex is trying to reach the doctor who raised him, but the doctor's been relocated to an underground military bunker in Nevada," Anderson said. "So even if they make it across a zombie-infested California, there's not necessarily a cozy fireplace waiting for them."


Issue #1 picks up from the One-Shot issue from 2012, and will make a great jumping-on point for new readers.

REX, ZOMBIE KILLER #1 is written by Rob Anderson (MY LITTLE PONY: SPIKE MICRO, GREAT ZOMBIES IN HISTORY) with interior and cover art by DaFu Yu (GRIMM FAIRY TALES, WONDERLAND ANNUAL), interior colors by Juan Romera, cover colors by Kevin Volo, letters and design by E.T. Dollman, and edited by Paul Allor (TMNT: FUGITOID MICRO, ORC GIRL).
