We’re buying back issues and collectibles in a big way, and we’re especially looking for Silver and Golden Age comics, along with key issues of ANY age. We also need LOTS of vintage toys and collectibles, so don’t be shy, bring everything, and be prepared to meet Midtown’s back issue man Alex Rae. Who knows? You may walk away with an Uncle Scrooge-size haul of money!! Buying day takes place at Midtown Comics Downtown, at 64 Fulton Street (corner of Ryder Alley, just a few blocks east of Broadway), from 11:00AM to 4:00PM.

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


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.

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.

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.

The Greatest Superhero of All Time RETURNS! The world may have changed since Spidey’s been gone, but so has Peter Parker. This is a man with a second chance at life, and he’s not wasting a moment of it. Same Parker Luck, new Parker attitude. Putting the ‘friendly’ back in the neighborhood, the ‘hero’ back into ‘super hero,’ and the ‘amazing’ back into ‘Spider-Man!’ Also returning: The recharged and reenergized ELECTRO!

As the fight for freedom fades, it’s left to the Girl to take up the mantle and bring down the fearsome BLI!
