CAN’T MAKE IT TO COMIC-CON IN SAND DIEGO THIS YEAR? LET NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC COME TO YOUR RESCUE!
Whether you’re into those magnificent, mighty, mutant heroes of Marvel’s X-Men, or the mischievous baby devil that wears diapers and carries a magical pitchfork in the classic “Hot Stuff The Little Devil” comic book series, Midtown Comics in New York City has what you need. It’s the largest retailer of comic books, graphic novels, Manga (Japanese comics) and related collectibles in the country, if not the world, and it has the alternate universes its customers crave. Follow the lives of staffers Gerry, Thor and Alex as they deal with all manner of geeks and enthusiastic customers while simultaneously planning their mega-booth for New York Comic Con, their biggest day of the year. With more than a million books in stock, they need to know their stuff — and are frequently tested by rabid fans of incredibly popular or extremely obscure comics.
Don’t miss ‘Comic Store Heroes’ on the National Geographic Channel US at 8pm on Friday 13th July 2012.

True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys TP
Writer: Shaun Simon, Gerard Way • Artist: Becky Cloonan
Years ago, the Killjoys fought against the tyrannical megacorporation Better Living Industries, costing them their lives, save for one – the mysterious Girl. Today, the followers of the original Killjoys languish in the Desert while BLI systematically strips citizens of their individuality. As the fight for freedom fades, it’s left to the Girl to take up the mantle and bring down the fearsome BLI!
Collects The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys #1-#6 and ‘Dead Satellites’ from Free Comic Book Day 2013.
From Gerard Way, creator of the Eisner Award-winning The Umbrella Academy!
