All NEW Goon!

The Goon was one of the very first comic books that I ever read, when I first started getting into the hobby! It was such a great book. It was hilarious, and Eric Powell killed it on the art! Well fear not, as The Goon makes its return next spring! Eric Powell and his publishing company, Albatross Funnybooks, will be putting out never before published stories! This will be the first time in three years that a new The Goon story will hit the shelves, and it will start the year long, 20th Anniversary celebration! There will be a signing tour, Albatross Funnybooks’ collected editions of classic GOON graphic novels, Goon Tiki Mugs, and much much more!

“The fact that we feel confident bringing the full library of my flagship title over to Albatross going into our third year of expansion fills me with excitement and a new enthusiastic energy for what’s to come,” said Powell. “With Albatross, we focus on making fun, eclectic comics that stand out for their individuality and creative quality, as seen in our lineup of titles like HILLBILLY, SPOOK HOUSE, ‘NAMWOLF, GALAKTKON, GRUMBLE and MEGAGHOST. It’s with this idea of keeping the fun in our Funny Books that we are steering this new GOON series. I’m returning to the roots of the series with a heavy emphasis on the weird, twisted humor the book has been known for. The world around us is dark enough right now. I want to make readers laugh and forget their troubles for a little bit. It definitely feels like it’s time for THE GOON.”

New Comics for October 10th 2018

Man this week is HUGE! Plus this Saturday, October 13th is Walking Dead Day, so make sure you swing by your local comic shop to pick up some black bagged exclusive covers, reprints of issue #1, and some really cool swag to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of the comic! Lets get to it!

From DC this week, foil covers continue! Also, Cursed Comics Cavalcade #1 hits the racks! Horror! Death! Uh…Face-punching! Witness ten all-new stories that promise to be the most terrifying, most shocking and most horrific comic that DC Comics has ever published! (Hyperbole much?) Batman, Wonder Woman, Guy Gardner, Swamp Thing, Zatanna and more of your favorite heroes face unspeakable horrors from the streets of Gotham City to the darkest sectors of the universe.

Also from DC this week, Flash #56 hits the rack! Things are about to get hot-very hot!-when Flash has to battle fire monsters generated by his longtime nemesis, Heat Wave. Unfortunately, the pilot light blew out in Mick Rory’s head, because he’s comatose from the effects of the Sage Force! How can the Scarlet Speedster reach his old frenemy and get him to put out the fire monsters? Looks like Commander Cold takes a demotion…so he can pretend to be Captain Cold and talk Heat Wave down!

From Image this week, a new title called Infinite Dark #1 hits the racks! The universe ended, but onboard the void station Orpheus, a skeleton crew of humanity survived: the last two thousand souls, waiting for a second big bang that may never come. Now, two years into their voyage, Security Director Deva Karrell investigates the station’s first murder-and the otherworldly motives behind it.

Also from Image this week, from DANIEL WARREN JOHNSON, the creator of the Eisner-nominated series EXTREMITY, comes MURDER FALCON! The world is under attack by monsters, and Jake’s life is falling apart: no band, no girl, no future… until he meets Murder Falcon. He was sent from The Heavy to destroy all evil, but he can’t do it without Jake shredding up a storm. Now, with every chord Jake plays on his guitar, the power of metal fuels Murder Falcon into all-out kung fu fury on those that seek to conquer Earth.

From Marvel this week, Namor is back in Avengers #9! WORLD WAR BELOW!With the underwater world on the brink of war, the Avengers go aquatic to save the day, but air-breathers are no longer welcome in the undersea city of Atlantis. And Namor, the Sub-Mariner, lord of the seven seas, has a bold new plan that will change the balance of power on Earth forever.

Spider Geddon continues with issue #1 hitting stands this week! REVENGE OF THE SPIDER-VERSE! Back in 2014, SPIDER-VERSE brought every Spider-Man ever together. This event spinning out of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #800 has Christos Gage and Dan Slott teaming up to destroy them all. The Inheritors have somehow gotten out of their radioactive prison planet and made their way to the Marvel Universe. It’s going to take a whole Spider-Army to keep them from TAKING IT ALL! Starring Spider-Man, Doctor Octopus, Spider-Gwen, Miles Morales, Spider-Woman, the Spider-Man from the anticipated video game and, well, every Spider-Man and Spider-Woman ever, including some brand-new ones! With Jorge Molina on art, the END OF ALL SPIDERS never looked so good!

Star Wars Solo Adaptation #1 (of 7) blasts onto racks this week! FEATURING BACKSTORY AND SCENES NOT SEEN IN THEATERS! After leaving the IMPERIAL NAVY, a young HAN SOLO seeks adventure by joining a gang of galactic mercenaries – including a 196-year-old Wookiee named CHEWBACCA and a notorious gambler named LANDO CALRISSIAN. But there’s more to the story of the galaxy’s most beloved scoundrel than what you saw in theaters. Why does BECKETT trust him? And what is the connection between the woman who stole Han’s heart and one of Han’s closest friends?

Another one-shot kicks off some new What If’s this week with What if? Punisher #1! WITH GREAT POWER…When Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben is ruthlessly killed by a burglar Peter let escape, he vows to never let the same fate befall another innocent bystander. From then on, he stands as a figure of cold retribution. Criminals beware – the guilty caught in this spider’s web will be PUNISHED. But will Parker stand triumphant…or shattered by this twist of fate? The friendly neighborhood takes a different turn in this WHAT IF? adventure, positing a very different sense of responsibility for the man who will be known as THE PUNISHER, as his battles against villains like the GREEN GOBLIN take a new path!

Lastly from Marvel this week, X-Men Black continues with X-Men Black Mojo #1! THE SPINELESS SHOWMAN TAKES CENTER STAGE! That’s right – that most successful producer ever to pack the cross-time airwaves, the man himself, MOJO, has yet another plan in place the boost his ratings at the X-Men’s expense! And I’m sure he would say it’s THE MOST IMPORTANT COMIC BOOK YOU’LL EVER READ! PLUS: Part 2 of X-MEN BLACK: APOCALYPSE!

From AfterShock this week a new sci-fi series makes its debut with The Last Space Race #1! It started as an anomaly. An outlier in the noise that’s so common in astronomical data. But the truth sends the United States-and the world-careening into what will become humanity’s LAST SPACE RACE. Leading the effort for the United States is one man, Sasha Balodis. A fun-loving tech billionaire turned aerospace titan, Sasha’s seemingly perfect life has been gripped by recent trage-dy. Building and launching the most expensive, most ambitious and most important project in history-well, it gives him something to live for again. There’s only one thing standing in his way: his arch-rival and chief aerospace competitor, Roger Freeman.

From Black Mask Comics this week, a new horror title makes its debut with Devil Within #1 (of 4). Paranormal entities. Demonic possessions. Or is it madness? When newly engaged Michelle and Samantha move into an old house, Michelle starts experiencing disturbing events… rogue reflections in mirrors, strange apparitions, and an errie voice only she can hear. Samantha doesn’t believe in ghosts, but the alternative might be even more terrifying in this hauntingly paranoid thriller

New Comics for October 3rd 2018

Welcome to October! It’s the first week of the month and man is it a doozey! Lots of great books this week so lets hop right in and get to our new book rundown! PLUS DC FOILS!!!

From Boom! Studios this week, Sparrowhawk #1 (of 5) lands on shelves and is touted as “Teen Victorian Fairy Fight Club”! As the illegitimate daughter of a Naval Captain, Artemesia has never fit in with her fatherfs family, nor the high class world to which they belong. However, when she is targeted by the Faerie Queen and pulled into another realm, she has no choice but to try and save the world that has always hated her.

From Dark Horse this week, Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba’s Umbrella Academy is BACK! Faced with an increasing number of lunatics with superpowers eager to face off with his own wunderkind brood, Sir Reginald Hargreeves developed the ultimate solution …Now, just a few years after Hargreeves’s death, his Umbrella Academy is scattered. Number Five is a hired gun, Kraken is stalking big game, Rumor is dealing with the wreckage of her marriage, a rotund Spaceboy runs around the streets of Tokyo, Vanya continues her physical therapy after being shot in the head-and no one wants to even mention Seance until issue #2.

From DC this week, Green Arrow #45 flies onto shelves and is a Heroes in Crisis Tie In! Oliver Queen is forced to take a hard look at himself and evaluate his methods after he fails one too many times trying to do the right thing. It’s a dark, depressing stroll down memory lane for the Emerald Archer, as Oliver must come to grips with how he’s hurt the people around him. This issue guest-stars members of the Justice League and the Titans, but are they there to console Ollie…or condemn him?

Also from DC this week, Nightwing #50! “Knight Terrors” begins here! The big issue #50 kicks off an epic four-part story that brings together critical moments of fear and doubt from the past and the present. A young Dick Grayson hopes to escape the shadow of the Bat and earn the title of Nightwing, while an older Dick Grayson must deal with a blow he did not see coming. A common enemy unites the timelines: the Scarecrow, as you’ve never seen him before! This story goes deep into the mythology and nightmarish development of Dr. Jonathan Crane.

Lastly from DC this week, Wonder Woman & Justice League Dark Witching Hour #1 is just in time for Halloween, it’s “The Witching Hour,” a five-part weekly event that will rewrite the future of DC’s magical heroes! Hecate, the witch-goddess of magic, always knew a day would come when the monsters she stole her magic from would return. Now she must activate the Witchmarked, humans within whom she secreted vast stores of power. And the most powerful of the Witchmarked? Wonder Woman!

From IDW this week, Batman the Maxx #1 (of 5) makes its debut! Batman must face the strangest and most bizarre adventure of his career, as he meets comics’ strangest and most bizarre hero… THE MAXX! IDW and DC Comics proudly present the most surreal, quirky, and wonderful crossover of all time! A devious new doctor at Arkham Asylum is conducting unconventional experiments into the human psyche, and he kicks off a chain reaction of disaster when he experiments on Arkham’s newest patient, The Maxx! The city of Gotham is starting to merge with The Maxx’s psychedelic mental landscape, known as the Outback, blurring the line between real and unreal. It’s up to Batman to save not just Gotham, but all of reality, and he and The Maxx are going to have to travel through some of the darkest places imaginable-the twisted minds of Batman’s greatest enemies!

Also from IDW this week, Star Wars Tales from Vaders Castle #1 squeezes onto shelves! Tales from Vader’s Castle puts a spooky spin on your favorite characters from a galaxy far, far away…This exciting weekly series explores the hidden corners of the Star Wars universe and features Rebels stars Hear, Kanan, and Chopper; Obi-Wan Kenobi and Count Dooku; Han Solo and Chewbacca; the Ewoks; and of course, Darth Vader -all under the shadow of Vader’s Castle! Fans will be excited to discover these creepy stories by fan-favorite writer Cavan Scott with art by the greatest talent from across the galaxy, including Derek Charm, Kelley Jones, Chris Fenoglio, Corin Howell, Robert Hack, and Charles Paul Wilson III!

Lastly from IDW this week, the first of a series of one-shots spotlighting each of the individual Turtles crawls up from the sewers and onto shelves. TMNT returns to its roots with new spotlights on individual Turtles, but this time they’re extra-large! Donatello understands that more is at stake than his brothers realize. In order to prepare for the coming conflict, Don will aim to repair his relationship with his mentor Harold… and his malicious robotic counterpart Metalhead! The new “Macros” will set up each individual Turtle for the climactic storyline leading to TMNT #100!

From Image this week, a new title called Blackbird #1 by Sam Humphries and Jen Bartel. In this neo-noir fantasy, Nina Rodriguez is positive that a secret magic world ruled by ruthless cabals is hiding just beneath the veneer of Los Angeles. The problem: everyone thinks she’s crazy. The bigger problem: she’s not crazy – she’s right. Can she unravel the mystery before the Great Beast catches up with her?

Also from Image this week, Dead Rabbit #1 by Gerry Duggan and John McCrea! Back in the ’90s, DEAD RABBIT was a prolific Boston stick-up man and hoodlum, until he took down one last big score and disappeared. Nobody ever discovered the truth: he retired to be with the love of his life. Now he’s back in the mask to save her, but no one-not his wife, the mafia, or the cops-is happy that he’s out of retirement.

It’s a big week for Image new series, and add to that Errand Boys #1 (of 5). In the future, if you can’t find a decent job, you run errands-the dangerous, often illegal kind. 30-year-old Jace Lopaz is a hard-worn scoundrel and a lifelong solo act-until he’s saddled with his 13-year-old half-brother Tawnk full-time. Now Jace has two mouths to feed while evading the law, running from aliens, and jumping off skyscrapers. The only thing weirder than the vastness of space is family.

Lastly from Image this week, new series Jook Joint #1 (of 5 ) hits the racks. Mahalia runs the hottest spot in all of 1950s New Orleans. The Jook Joint keeps the jazz popping, people bopping… and the women? The women are to die for. There’s only one rule: “Keep your hands to yourself.” But some men think rules don’t apply to them, and Mahalia and her coven of slain women enjoy reminding them that they most certainly do.

It’s a big week for Marvel too! First off, The Shatterstar Mini-series debuts with issue #1 (of 5). A gladiator, a warrior, a hero…the man called Shatterstar has been many things, but one thing he’s always been is deadly. He’s not a man you want to cross or you’ll learn that fact all too well. Walk back into the darkness with Shatterstar.

Doc Ock makes his return in Superior Octopus #1 as part of the Spider-Geddon tie in! Doc Ock has set up shop as San Francisco’s protector, but you won’t believe his methods. Some of Otto Octavius’s new super hero strategies may make Spider-Man regret letting him free, but the good doctor swears that he’s the SUPERIOR OCTOPUS!

Another one-shot kicks off some new What If’s this week with What If Spider Man #1! What if Peter Parker wasn’t the one bitten by the radioactive spider? What if the person who got bit was someone who didn’t live by the mantra of “with great power comes great responsibility”? What if that person was an egotistical bully who was only interested in taking care of himself? What if…FLASH THOMPSON became Spider-Man?

Lastly from Marvel this week, X-Men Black begins with Magneto #1! MAGNETO IS BACK! …and so is Chris Claremont! For years, Magneto has done everything he can to achieve his goals for mutant domination. But now Magneto has declared that enough is enough. So what revolutionary plan does Magneto have that will change the face of mutantkind? And will anyone be able to stop him? Will anyone want to? PLUS: Includes Part 1 of X-MEN BLACK: APOCALYPSE the back up story by Zac Thompson, Lonnie Nadler, and Geraldo Borge.

From AfterShock this week a new horror series debuts called Lollipop Kids #1! When immigrants came to the new world they didn’t only bring their hopes and dreams, they also brought their MONSTERS. Years ago, early settlers locked these monsters away in a secret prison deep in the woods of New Amsterdam so that they would never return to the Old World again. Those woods have since become Central Park and now the monsters have escaped! Nick, a 14-year-old Harlem resident, finds out that he is a “legacy” to a secret society that for the last 400 years has kept monsters in check. Now Nick and a ragtag group of kids just like him have to put the monsters back before they get out of the park and destroy the city.

Allison O’Toole has now been on the show, I believe four times (I could be wrong). Well Allison is back with “Called Into Being: A Celebration of Frankenstein.” With Gabe being such a Frankenstein fan, of course this was a very fun interview!! Celebrating the 200 year anniversary of when Mary Shelley published Frankenstein, you will find over fifteen different comics/essays written all in celebration! This is not a retelling, but more of an exploration of “the places were our lives and literature connect.” With a couple weeks left in the kickstarter, help Allison bring this amazing set of stories to life!! Whether you call him Frankenstein, or “The Monster,” there will always be entertaining stories to tell!!

Remember, you can ALWAYS let us know what you think!

New Comics September 26th 2018

Well Fall is finally here. The air is a little cooler, the leaves have started changing, and it is a HUGE week for comics, so put your nerdy sweater on and grab a pumpkin spice something and lets dive in!

From Dark Horse this week, one of the most anticipated comic releases in a long time from a Netflix TV show that was very likely spawned from the comic book medium, Stranger Things makes its debut this week with issue #1 (of 4). The nostalgia igniting hit Netflix original series comes to comic shelves. Follow Will Byers into a dimension of decay and destruction where he must use his wits and resolve to dodge the pursuit of the Demogorgon and escape the Upside Down. Written by award winning comics veteran Jody Houser (Faith, Orphan Black, Mother Panic). Based on Will’s unseen journey during season 1 of hit Netflix show Stranger Things.

From DC this week, Batgirl #27 drops, and has Barbara returning to Gotham, and the debut of a new costume! You can’t go home again. But that’s just where Barbara Gordon, a.k.a. Batgirl, is forced to go when the chip granting her mobility keeps shorting out in the aftermath of her clash with Grotesque. Will Commissioner Gordon drive Babs totally bonkers with his bedside manner? Or will the malfunctioning tech impact more than just her legs? Plus, what’s the deal with killer art critic Grotesque and his murderous new M.O.? It’s all in part two of “Art of the Crime.”

Huge week for DC with the release of Heroes In Crisis #1 (of 7) written by Tom King with art by Clay Mann! There’s a new kind of crisis threatening the heroes of the DC Universe, ripped from real-world headlines by C.I.A.-operative-turned-comics-writer Tom King: How does a superhero handle PTSD? Welcome to Sanctuary, an ultra-secret hospital for superheroes who’ve been traumatized by crime-fighting and cosmic combat. But something goes inexplicably wrong when many patients wind up dead, with two well-known operators as the prime suspects: Harley Quinn and Booster Gold! It’s up to the DC Trinity of Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman to investigate-but can they get the job done in the face of overwhelming opposition?

Lastly from DC this week, Justice League Odyssey is FINALLY out! Spinning out of JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE! When a cosmic menace threatens worlds beyond our own in the Ghost Sector, it falls to a new Justice League team to answer the call to battle! Cyborg, Starfire, Green Lantern Jessica Cruz and an out-of-his-element Azrael head to deep space inside a commandeered Brainiac Skull Ship. But as these wildcard teammates try to break through the impenetrable maelstrom imprisoning the desperate collection of planets, they discover something that nothing in the universe could have prepared them for: Darkseid…who says he’s there to help?! Written by Josh Williamson with art by Stjepan Sejic!

From Dynamite this week, Vampirella Deja Thoris #1 hits the shelf! The encounter that was destined to happen! When an alien scout ship crashes on Mars, Dejah Thoris must risk reigniting war with the Green Martians and becoming dinner for the white apes. But the stakes are raised so much higher when the ship is revealed to carry Vampirella, who is on a desperate mission of survival-one that might end before it truly begins!

From Image this week, a new title called Man-Eater lands! Eisner-nominated and New York Times bestselling thriller writer CHELSEA CAIN returns to comics with a new ONGOING SERIES! A mutation in Toxoplasmosis causes menstruating women to turn into ferocious killer wildcats-easily provoked and extremely dangerous. As panic spreads and paranoia takes root, the fate of the world rides on the shoulders of one twelve-year-old girl. Part Cat People, part The Handmaid’s Tale, MAN-EATERS will have everyone talking.

From Marvel this week, the second of the Infinity Warps hits shelves with Iron Hammer #1 (of 2).

Hungry Ghosts by Anthony Bourdain

While the world is still mourning after the passing of LEGEND Anthony Bourdain, coming in October, the final graphic novel of Hungry Ghosts will be published by Dark Horse Comics.

Hungry Ghosts “reunites the bestselling writer, chef, and award winning television host with accomplished co-writer Joel Rose, his friend and longtime collaborator, for a series of horror stories inspired by the popular Japanese Edo period parlour game of Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai. The graphic novel substitutes chefs in place of the traditional samurai, and transforms the classic stories of yokai, yorei, and obake by adding a common thread: food is central to each bone-chilling tale.  On a dark, eerie night a Russian oligarch dares a circle of international chefs to play the Samurai game of 100 Candles—where each storyteller blows out a candle after telling a terrifying tale of ghosts, demons and unspeakable beings, praying to survive the challenge.”

The full color, 128 page novel, will go on sale October 2nd!! So in a matter of seven days, you will be able to enjoy this amazing hardcover book! It will feature:

·  5 all-new original recipes prepared by Bourdain;

·  An extended dedication and beautiful send off to Bourdain written by Rose;

·  Stories stunningly illustrated by artists Sebastian Cabrol, Vanesa Del Rey, Francesco Francavilla, Irene Koh, Leonardo Manco, Alberto Ponticelli, Paul Pope, and Mateus Santolouco, with amazing color by Jose Villarrubia;

·  The Real Ghosts, a handy guide to the legendary spirits behind the terrifying tales, written by Rose, with illustrations by Leonardo Manco;

·  A reunion for Bourdain and Rose with legendary comic book editor Karen Berger — the editor of Dark Horse Comics’ imprint Berger Books and recent inductee into the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards Hall of Fame — who was the founding editor of Vertigo Comics, which published Bourdain and Rose’s graphic novel debut, the New York Times #1 bestseller, Get Jiro!

·  A jaw-dropping cover by bestselling comics artist Paul Pope.

Above all else, Anthony Bourdain was a writer. He wrote 14 different books, with a few more in progress at the time of his passing, and spend decades writing and starring in television!

“We hope you’ll celebrate Anthony Bourdain, and his love of story and food, by devouring this book. ”

Denver Comic Con is NOW Denver Pop Culture Con

Are you all ready for a little bit of change in our comic con lives!? The non-profit organization behind what was FKA Denver Comic Con, has decided that now is the right time to make a few changes! The NEW Denver Pop Culture Con makes it’s official debut May 31st 2019! Considering a name change now for the last few years, now was the right time, in order to align the brand across the organization’s name, and it’s signature events! Those signature events include Denver Pop Culture Con, and the NEW and upcoming in 2019, Reno Pop Culture Con!

“After much discussion and careful deliberation, our leadership team arrived at the name Denver Pop Culture Con for several reasons,” said Dr. Christina Angel, Convention Director for Pop Culture Classroom. “We believe it more accurately reflects the breadth, depth, and inclusivity that has come to define Denver’s annual celebration of all things pop culture.”

With how ever changing the comic book culture, and pop culture have been in recent years, this move was meant to encompass everything that goes on during the convention; comics, television & film, authors, cosplay, workshops, educations programming, and everything else that Denver Comic Con encapsulated since it’s inception!

“Fans can rest assured that Denver Pop Culture Con will continue to celebrate comic book culture and creators as we always have,” said Dr. Angel. “After all, it’s comic books that got us hooked on pop culture in the first place, and the foundation on which we are built.”

Coming soon, there will be a “throwback” sales event. This event will feature merchandise with the old Denver Comic Con brand on it, and merchandise with the new Denver Pop Culture Con will be available soon as well!!

ANNOUNCEMENT

Tickets for Denver Pop Culture Con will go on sale November 13th, 2018 at 10am MST, for speed pass holders. For the general public, tickets will go on sale, November 14th at 10am MST. Three day tickets tend to go pretty quickly, so don’t miss out on the opportunity! We’ve been every year since the inception, and it’s done nothing but get better!! We’re hopeful that the name change brings nothing but continued success, plus we hope that the first annual Reno Pop Culture Con get’s off to an amazing start!!

TOTLB 095 Colorado Springs Comic Con 2018

And one more Colorado Springs Comic Con has come and gone! After the last two comic cons earlier in the year, Colorado Springs was a refreshing change of pace!! Much more relaxed, AND we did mostly coverage of panels, which is new to us! BUT, first things first, we have an interview to start off the show!

We spoke with Russell Nohelty from the upcoming anthology, Cthulhu Is Hard To Spell! You KNOW that we (especially Gabe) are HUGE fans of books like this, and we think you all will get a kick out of it! If you love Lovecraft THIS is the anthology to support on Kickstarter! This book is not a typical Lovecraft style story, and revolves much more around these beautiful/horrendous creatures! With seven days left in the kickstarter, don’t miss out on your chance to support this team, we will be!

The main bulk of this show is our rundown of the panels that we did while we were in attendance! After the main show, listen to our floor interviews with some of our favorite stalwarts at Colorado Springs Comic Con; Frankie Serna, Jessica Barnes, AC Canales, with new to the show Babs Webb, and to end the episode, we have an awesome interview with Ron Marz!!

Remember, you can ALWAYS let us know what you think! We can only think of so many things to talk about every other week, and would LOVE to get some feedback and ideas from all of you out there who are listening!! You can send mp3s and email to our email address. Also, join the conversations on our Facebook Page and Twitter Page. If you have good feedback, please leave it for us on iTunes and Stitcher!!
