Welcome back to a fantabulous new year of comics, as
Todd McFarlane and Robert Kirkman team-up!

Spawn #200, by Todd and Rob!
Spawn reaches a magnificent milestone with Spawn #200, and Todd McFarlane presents a who’s-who of Image creators, each providing a spectacular cover, along with several incentive covers. Story by none other than Todd McFarlane and Robert Kirkman.

Also, take 30% off Marvel back issues from A-G (with the super-secret codeword below), and 30% off all comic boxes, to provide a place to store all of those Marvel back issues!

With the promotion of Axel Alonso to Editor-In-Chief, a new era at Marvel has begun. So when we added all of our great back issues this week we wanted to add some of the great late titles that we want back! Books like Marvel Two-In-One, and Marvel Team-Up. Who doesn’t want to see Aunt May and Franklin Richards team up to face Galactus? (Yeah that happened! It was Marvel Team-up #137!) We never forget our friends over at DC! We also added World’s Finest Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, Impulse, Planetary, Power of Shazam!, Starman Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, Static, and Geoff Johns’ great work on Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. Add Iron Man Vol. 1 to the list and every week is a good week for back issues.

If you’ve got books you want to sell you can always e-mail me!

Stay mint,
Alex Rae!
