New 52: It’s a busy week for Batman!
It’s another rough–and busy–week for the Dark Knight. Batman and the other heroes must put their many differences aside to face the terror that is Darkside, in Justice League #5, by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee. In Batman the Dark Knight #5, by Paul Jenkins and David Finch, after a madman attacks him with a new and powerful fear toxin, Batman visits the coldest and most distant part of his soul. Next up, take a wild guess who makes a guest appearance in I Vampire #5 by Joshua Hale Fialkov, Andrea Sorrentino and Jenny Frison? The Queen of Blood has deadly plans for the citizens of Gotham City, but before Andrew can stop her, he must face The Dark Knight! Things aren’t much better for the Man of Steel, who is seen as a malignancy in Metropolis that is ruining the city in Superman #5, by George Perez and Jesus Perino. As y’all know, ah’m mighty keen on Jonah Hex, but ah had no idea that Dr. Amadeus Arkham would turn out to be half of this buddy-action-western-bromance! The boys face off against a gang of ruthless kidnappers in the sewers beneath old Gotham City in All Star Western #5. Mah money’s on the doc an’ the gun-slinger. By Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti, Moritat, and Phil Winslade.

As the main man in the back issue world of Midtown Comics, it’s not hard to figure out what books to put in every week. We strive to put in great runs of back issues that are popular, like Amazing Spider-Man and Batman, but this week we got to the little guys. We put in more mini and maxi series than ever before, including DC, Marvel, Image, Dark Horse, and many more. Some of these series are never going to be put in trade paperbacks or hard covers and the last handful of issues can be very hard to find, so this week we decided to put in the stragglers that seem to have been forgotten. Check out all of the back issues on our “just-added” page to see everything we add!
This just in! Our Times Square store got in a huge run of Incredible Hulk vol 1 and the Grand Central store got in huge runs of Avengers vol 1, and Captain America vol 1.
We buy comics, graphic novels and collectibles! If you’ve got books you want to sell, e-mail me!
