Holy Shadowland! I love Daredevil and Shadowland is rockin’, so I put some Heroes for Hire Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 on our site so you can catch up on all the supporting characters. I love team books in general, and of the 5,000 back issues uploaded today I put some nice high grade issues of Legion of Superheroes (all volumes and incarnations) and G.I. Joe. I’m going to make this short today; Hollywood called and wants me to be in the Thor movie! Something about a stand-in for a tree or something. Check up on Thor Vol. 3, so when you see the movie you can say things like “Hey that’s like what JMS did in issue #5.”

We love superheroes here at Midtown, but we also read “classy” books as well. You know, like Classics Illustrated. That’s why both stores now have good runs of some of your favorite books they made you read in school, in comic book form! Check out both our Times Square and Grand Central locations to see what issues they have available!

Stay mint,
Alex Rae!
