I can’t even say anything clever about this book. It’s just good. Plain and simple. And I’m excited to get my hands on Shadowland #2 this week. If you read the first issue you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t gotten to it yet, don’t let this one pass you by. Andy Diggle is showing us just how important he is to the Marvel Universe with this amazing Daredevil event.

Midtown is Party Town!
Midtown is THE place to party! This past weekend we destroyed all that is Comic-Con with the Not at Comic Con Party that was sponsored by Dark Horse Comics and Red Bull. I’m still a little queasy from all the Red Bull chugging challenges I won. Many thanks go to Dark Horse Comics, Red Bull, and everyone that came out to make the party a success! Take a look at the pics and video from this awesome event!

Hello to all those at Comic-Con, and to all those who are not. Has everybody seen the Cap pics yet? I did and man did it make me patriotic! That’s why when we put over 5,000 comics in today we made sure to put in good runs of Captain America, Sgt. Fury, Sgt. Rock, and Our Fighting Forces. But that didn’t stop our resident Green Arrow fan from putting in good runs of Green Arrow Vol. 1, Vol. 2, Vol. 3 — and who can forget the last volume, Green Arrow and Black Canary? Not this guy. We also added great runs of Archer and Armstrong, Magnus Robot Fighter, and Solar Man of the Atom because of how valiant Chris Evans looks in his Cap costume…(cough) Well, bad joke aside, check out our back issue page for every comic we added in this week!

How do we get all of these great comics? WE BUY THEM! Don’t forget you can contact me anytime if you have books to sell. We’re also buying back trade paperbacks and hardcovers too! Maybe that last trade you got wasn’t as good as it should have been (I hope not!) — sell it back to me! Send me an email here if you’re looking to sell!

Are you ready for the Avengers movies? Well our Times Square store is! Did you know they have Avengers #1? And a Tales of Suspense #39, you know, the first appearance of Iron Man!? And our Grand Central store is ready for the Spider-Man reboot with a Fine Amazing Spider-Man #39 (the first Romita) and a Very Fine Amazing Spider-Man #50! Check it out!

Seeya in the bins,
Alex Rae!
