Joker’s Daughter #1
(W) Marguerite Bennett (A) Meghan Hetrick-Murante (CA) Georges Jeanty

Who is The Joker’s Daughter? What horrors lurk in the mind of this deranged lunatic, and why is there more to her than meets the eye? More than just a crazy person who stumbled upon The Joker’s face, more than just a woman with a mission, The Joker’s Daughter sees herself as a woman on the path of greed, dominance and lordship over the Gotham Underground. This special issue tells a sordid tale in the life of one of DC’s most popular new villains!

The Geek’s Guide To Dating by Eric Smith-

The Geek’s Guide to Dating is a hip, fun, funny, contemporary, and useful manual with practical dating advice for geeks. There’s no other geek dating book on the market, and current trends indicate a huge rise in geek culture. Humorous and fun, The Geek’s Guide to Dating is filled with actual, useful dating information. In the not-so-distant past, any book or article on the topic of geek dating was cruel and meanspirited. We think it’s time to take pride in geek love! With a hip, gifty package and loads of truly awesome 8-bit art illustrating the perils and rewards of dating, this book is a great gift and self-purchase!

In a doom-shadowed Cambodia infested with the living dead, CIA Special Agent Declan Rule and his canine companion Nero stalk a human monster, a neurosurgeon bent on carrying out grisly experiments that turn P.O.W.s into vicious instruments of war. In Vietnam, Private Kuen Yam and his ragtag band of survivors battle their way across a murderous no-man’s-land in a desperate search for a ticket to the skies. The war is over, but the battle for humanity’s survival has just begun. Courage will be tested, sanity will be pushed to the breaking point and the rules of war… will be broken.

Apr 23 Wed
TRANSLUCID #1 Signing with Claudio Sanchez & Chondra Echert
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

claudio-FB-photo

Join us at Midtown Comics Downtown on Wednesday April
23rd for a special signing for TRANSLUCID #1 with Claudio Sanchez &
Chondra Echert starting at 6:30pm!

Purchase of TRANSLUCID #1 is required to attend.
Limit of 2 items signed per customer.

TRANSLUCID #1 from Boom! Studios
Written by Claudio Sanchez and Chondra Echert  with art by Daniel Bayliss.
ON SALE NOW!

WHY WE LOVE IT: Claudio Sanchez and Chondra Echert have given us such
BOOM! Studios favorites as KILL AUDIO, THE AMORY WARS and KEY OF Z.
Their latest book takes the superhero trope of ‘the never-ending battle’
and turns it into something you’ve never seen before.

WHY
YOU’LL LOVE IT: TRANSLUCID is the superhero story you want but never
thought you’d see. A story of childhood hope and loss as much as it is
about the meaning of heroism, and what defines a hero and a villain.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: The Horse has been the archenemy of The Navigator for
years. But The Horse feels The Navigator’s moral compass has been
slipping, and even a villain can’t let that happen. The Horse decides to
get a closer look into The Navigator’s past that he’s buried deep in
his subconsciousness and find out what drives a person to make the right
choice, and what propels someone to make the selfish one. Thus begins
an exploration of why a young man would take the mantle of a superhero.
