We’ve put together this helpful guide to showcase our new variant covers, connecting covers, and exclusive items for the next three months! Read on below for more details below!
Midtown Bloggerinos! Raph here, with a new installment of one of my favorite posts from last year! I love science fiction, it’s one of the major backbones of comics, and has helped unleashed the imagination of countless millions. Without people writing stories about faraway places or future technology, how could we have inspired inventors who create smart phones, tablets and neurokinetic 3-D holoprojective televisions? … Okay so the last one is made up, but imagine how cool it’d be?!?
It’s 2012! With the threat of a Mayan apocalypse looming ahead, we’ve decided to take a look at all the other things to look forward to in 2012! These are comics and comic related things that will make 2012 a year worth not being blown up by Mayans! Let the countdown begin!

HELLLLOOO MIDTOWN BLOG-OMANIAC! Raph here, and I’m going to talk about something that escapes people’s attention sometimes, sci-fi comics!
I love science fiction, and I think people may forget that superhero comics are science fiction comics. Superman is an alien, Batman and Iron Man have expensive gadgets, and the X-Men are genetically enhanced. There’s a certain magic and mythology to superheroes, but there is also a rational and scientific explanation for most of what goes on in comics (I still don’t know where Beppo the Super Monkey comes from). So to celebrate, here are 5 sci-fi comics you should be reading!

Hello Midtown Blogger League of America! (or wherever you’re from!), Raph here this week and I got some twee views as well as something different. I thought I’d get into a little something we fanboys (and girls) like to do: talk about our favorite things in comics. This time, I want to take a look at some alternate realities, particularly with the Ultimate Universe going through major upheaval and the DCU being re-written in Flashpoint… I wanted to look at some universes and tales that I’ve enjoyed in the four color founts of fun that are comics… gotta get this Stan Lee Alliteration bug out of my system…
