Daredevil Punisher comics

Marvel and Netflix’s first season of Daredevil – which is the first of many Marvel/Netflix projects – received an enormous amount of love from both fans and critics. The dark and sometimes shockingly violent drama revealed not only the origin of Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), but also his iconic adversary, Wilson Fisk/Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio). When the dust finally settled from the Man Without Fear’s first major battle, Kingpin was behind bars and the street level hero was finally wearing a costume similar to the memorable red one he often wears in the comics. Season 2 is already under production, and it’s adding two classic characters to the show: Frank Castle/Punisher (Jon Bernthal) and Elektra Natchios (Elodie Yung). The second season is currently scheduled to be released in 2016, and we want to make sure you’ve done your homework! So, we’ve put a quick list together of five stories that are absolutely mandatory before delving into season 2. Be sure to contact one of our stores to see if the following stories are in stock. If not, check our website!

Plus, Perry White offers Clark a chance to return to The Daily Planet!

Midtown Bloggerinos! Raph here, and with the hot temperatures here, that means it’s blockbuster season! With movies like Iron Man 3, Star Trek: Into Darkness, Fast 6, and the upcoming Man of Steel, Hollywood is preparing for a season of big explosions, but comics also are about to get things going: between Superman Unchained, Trinity War, Infinity, the next chapter of Saga, and many others, there’s lots of action to pack into those 22 pages of comic. Here are some of my favorite action-adventures from recent memory. They are all collected into trade paperbacks or are original graphic novels, so you can get all your bang in one space.

The Unstoppable Marvel Now!

Posted by Raphael in: Opinion | No Comments


Midtown Bloggerinos! Raph here, back from a brief hiatus. Our Times Square location has recently changed it’s hours. We’re now open 8 am – Midnight from Monday to Saturday and 12 noon to 8pm on Sundays! What does that means for yours truly? Learning to be more nocturnal! But fear not, I’m back and I have a lot to say, particularly about how much I’m enjoying Marvel Now! This relaunch of the Marvel Universe isn’t a complete reboot (unlike DC’s New 52), the stories aren’t starting over, they’re just ending the last epoch of the Marvel Universe, which pretty much dates back to 2005’s House of M. Here are 3 reasons why I enjoy Marvel Now!
