The new Midtown TV: Hulk vs. Thor resolved!
Zoë and Thor ponder the age-old question that has puzzled comics readers since time immemorial, and bring in expert testimony to make the final call. Check out Midtown TV’s take on other hot topics, including Scott Pilgrim, Ron Marz and his new book Artifacts, and Dark Horse and Red Bull (yes, Red Bull). New characters, new style, new Midtown TV.

Ex Machina Concludes!
One of the best comic series of the past six years is sadly coming to an end — Brian K. Vaughan and Tony Harris’s Ex Machina hits #50 this week, its final issue. We’ll finally learn how Mayor Mitchell Hundred got his powers and why he told us in issue one that this story is a tragedy. This has consistently been one of my favorite books since issue #1.

I bet you didn’t know that Marvel once made magazine comics did you? You did? Well not everybody is as smart as you, so we added some great Marvel magazines to the website. We’ve got huge runs of Cracked, Crazy, Planet of the Apes, and Savage Sword of Conan. If you’re not a magazine fan, fear not! We also added Ghost Rider (all volumes), Marvel Premiere, Marvel Spotlight, Marvel Comics Presents, and Amazing Spider-Man! Don’t think we forgot about the DC fans. We put in a whole run of Batman Beyond so you can catch up with the new series, and some great Paul Dini Batman Gotham Adventures. It’s just another 6,000 comics and rare magazines up on our site this week, no big deal. That’s just how we roll.

This just in! Our Times Square location just got some very affordable Golden Age DC comics! And our Grand Central location has some great Bronze Age comics like G.I. Joe #1 and #21, the famous “silent issue” and first appearance of Storm Shadow by the great Larry Hama!

Stay Mint,
Alex Rae!
