The Eisner Awards are back!
The Eisner Awards have been announced, and we’ve got lots of great books by the fabulous nominees here. On a related note, we notice that The Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailer award has not yet been addressed, so if by any chance you happen to know of a worthy retailer (hint hint!), it might be fun to nominate ’em (whoever it might be)!

Death of Spider-Man:
He isn’t even dead yet, but Marvel has announced that Ultimate Spider-Man #160 regular and variant covers will be polybagged; what could they be hiding? What don’t they want us to share?

Nic Cage, the police found your Action Comics #1!
Action Comics #1 was stolen from Midtown Pal Nicolas Cage ten years ago (he shopped at our Times Square store once-for an hour-what a cool guy!), and crazy as it sounds, it just turned up in LA! Nic’s copy is high grade, and is valued at over one million buckeroos! Our friends at CBR talk about it here!

Believe it,
Thor and Gerry G., aka G-Man
