GET READY FOR THE 4th QUARTER!

Can you believe that the Summer is just about over? By the time the first day of school rolls around, the big box chains will already have the Halloween banners up. We cannot get a rest! I say we just whittle it down to two seasons: warm & cold. DONE!

However in the toy world, the fourth quarter means holidays, and holidays means shopping. Lots of shopping, which means that the big toy companies (and the little guys as well) are going to spare no expense as to what Junkies should keep their eyes peeled for once the leaves start to change and the flurries begin. Here are some of the coolest items that I have had my eye on all summer because we are always looking out for you toy Junkies that happen to be rabid Wednesday comic book pull-list cowboys and girls. Take a Fall trip to one of Midtown Comics’ three NYC locations for these upcoming goodies because nothing beats NYC in Autumn.

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!

Unfortunately, There is no such thing as Superman or Spider-Man in our real world. There is no one we can look up into the sky and see protecting us from the real evil that surrounds us.  While superpowers are useful, there are still superheroes who are just like us, making it their duty to protect and serve without any Spider-Sense, X-RayVision, or Adamantium Claws.  Living in a world of superheroes without any powers may be tough, but here are my Top Eight Heroes who can still get the job done!

Midtownies! Raph here, totally pumped after seeing Captain America: The Winter Soldier. My colleague Tom H has posted a review on the blog, which you can find here, so I won’t rehash what Tom’s already done. What I would like to do, is give a wishlist of movies and TV shows that I’d like to see Marvel Studios produce in the future, things that they haven’t announced or haven’t been speculated (I’m leaving Doctor Strange specifically out because I really think they’re going to do a movie for him in Phase 3). I also would like for all of this to be on Netflix, or something similar, as this will be a super-connected series. See what I suggest after the break.
