A local comic book store donated a box full of about 300 copies of comics from free comic book day.  There were only 2 different issues in the box.  They were going to throw them out, and they know what we are going to use them for.

Looks like this one will have some neat tv/movie nods.

I haven't read it, but I hear it's a good read.  Certainly more appealing than the upcoming movie, at any rate.

I know it's not really the purpose of this thread, but the Kickstarter for my fourth webcomic volume is half over, and we aren't at the halfway mark for funding yet. Please consider sharing, donating, or bugging your local comics shop to order!

I'm with Kurt

Fully agree. No interest in reading it and if I did I'm sure I'd hate it, not because the art is "bad" but because I don't happen to like how Frank characterizes Batman and Superman. This looks like a very good interpretation of the character I hate.

A quick plug for one of my favorite series since getting back into comics:

The trade for Death Vigil comes out today. It's a dark comedy with gorgeous artwork and really fun characters.



"Gifted? Join the Death Vigil in their ongoing war against the ever-growing power of the Primordial Enemy! The only catch is you have to die first. Become a corporeal immortal Death Knight, and obtain reality-altering weaponry in the never-ending battle between Good and Evil."

In Stock Trades has it for 45% off.

The creator, Stjepan Sejic, has several issues for free on his deviant art page along with his, also fantastic, Sunstone and Ravine series.

There's also a Marvel & Pirates Booty popcorn comic I found while browsing Marvel Unlimited.

I doubt I still have it, but when I was a kid they included a Spider-Man/Firestar/Ice Man comic in the local newspaper and boy did they love shopping at Macys before and after their adventures...
