BATMAN BATTLE FOR THE COWL COMMISSIONER GORDON #1

Written by Royal McGraw
Art by Tom Mandrake Cover by Ladrönn

Gotham City is in a state of emergency. Crime runs rampant, commerce is at a standstill, and gang warfare is on the rise. Through its darkest hours, one man has stood firm against the criminal element in Gotham - Police Commissioner James Gordon. Now, in the aftermath of "Batman: R.I.P.," Gordon and the GCPD will have to reclaim Gotham and take down Mister Freeze without the assistance of Batman. But with evil on the rise, will this be the beginning of the end of law enforcement in Gotham City? The battle has just begun in this all-new one-shot.



OVERSTREET COMIC BOOK PRICE GUIDE VOL 39
by Robert M. Overstreet

The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide, the definitive guide for comic collectors and dealers alike, is back for its 39th edition, including a 70th anniversary look at Batman's first year, an introduction to The Hero Initiative, an amazing roster of new entries in the
Overstreet Hall of Fame, and the most extensive pricing from the world of comics! This edition features a choice of two covers - a great modern interpretation of The Avengers #1 by John K. Snyder III and a spot-on recreation of the classic All-Select Comics #1 by Murphy Anderson.

Gerard Way (W), Gabriel Bá (P),
and Dave Stewart (C)

Propelled by nuclear armageddon, The Séance,
Spaceboy, and The Kraken race through time to solve the mystery of Number Five's past, and find themselves thrown into the turmoil of war, assassination, and strange visitations into their own childhoods. This imaginative series nears the conclusion of its second story arc-Dallas, in which the history of the United States is radically rewritten, and not a thing is changed.

Apocalypse Suite, the first arc of The Umbrella Academy has won the following awards:

2008 Eisner Award for Best Limited Series

2008 Eisner Award for Best Cover Artist

2008 Harvey Award for Best new Series

Winner of the 2008 Scream Award for Best Comic Book Artist.



X-FORCE CABLE MESSIAH WAR PROLOGUE
Written by CRAIG KYLE & CHRISTOPHER YOST

Art by MIKE CHOI & SONIA OBACK

Cover by KA
ARE ANDREWS

The birth of a single mutant child forever changed the landscape of the X-Universe. Some see the baby as the last hope for mutankind's survival; others see it as the bringer of the Apocalypse... No one knows which side is right because Cyclops handed the newborn over to Cable, believing his son could save both the child and mutantkind. But Cable never came back. Now, months
later, Cyclops has found his son hiding in the FUTURE... and he's sending in the one team that will do what needs to be done in order to ensure the survival of their species... X-FORCE. The X-Men event of the decade, "MESSIAH COMPLEX," continues here as the past, present and future converge in the pages of X-FORCE and CABLE. Continues next month in the pages of CABLE #13 and X-FORCE #14!

Get Your Game On!


Set aside some time to visit Curious Comics Hillside on Saturday March 21st - 'cuz that's the day Wizards of the Coast is going to change the way you play Dungeons & Dragons forever!

That's right, folks - it's time for another Worldwide Dungeons & Dragons Game Day! Our crack team of volunteer Dungeon Masters will be on hand all day to help you get up to speed with some of the wilder new character options as detailed in the just-released Player's Handbook 2.

Come try out new races (gnome, anyone?) and new classes (perhaps a little barbarian with your gnome, monsieur?) while you battle wicked fiends and thwart dark plots (like every other Saturday afternoon, I guess). No matter if you’re new to the game or a 4th Edition veteran - our friendly and knowledgeable DMs will have everything you need to make sure everyone has a great time.

This Gameday's adventure, entitled One Dark Night in Weeping Briar, runs about 2 hours and includes five pregenerated 11th-level characters, all powered up with PHB2 goodness.

Get together - roll some dice - have some fun! What could be better? See you there!

Spotlight on March 18 Arrivals

AIR #7 (MR)
Written by G. Willow Wilson Art and cover by M.K. Perker

From the beginning, Blythe has been searching through a country that doesn't exist and into a far more bizarre dimension in order to find the stranger she's fallen in love with - Zayn, a man who may or may not be a terrorist. Now, their paths will cross in the oddest way possible: Trapped in Zayn's body as a 10-year-old boy, Blythe will relive his life and the things she'll learn will shock her beyond anything she could've ever imagined!
If you
haven't tried out this new ongoing Vertigo series, this is the issue to hop on board - specially priced at just $1.30!



STAR TREK CREW #1

By John Byrne

Eight years
before "The Cage," the young woman who would become the Starship Enterprise's "most experienced officer" was a lowly cadet assigned to the shakedown cruise of an uncommissioned starship. But that supposedly pedestrian mission may prove the most dangerous of her life. John Byrne begins an all-new, six-part miniseries torn from the Federation's beginnings!





WOLVERINE #71
Written b
y MARK MILLAR
Penc
ils & Cover by STEVE MCNIVEN

"OLD MAN LOGAN"-Now we know what happened fifty years ago, the day the super heroes were slaughtered. We know h
ow Logan managed to survived. We know why WOLVERINE didn't. But that's nothing compared to what happens next, as Logan and Hawkeye reach New Babylon to deliver their mysterious cargo. But before they get there-they'll have to face their toughest challenge to date: a Venom Tyrannosaurus Rex! MARK MILLAR and STEVE MCNIVEN continue the career-defining epic that will have fans talking for years to come! Part 6 (of 8).


ANGEL 1/1 SCALE PUPPET REPLICA

No other episode has better captured the imaginations of Angel fans like
"Smile Time" - making this full-size working Puppet Angel one of the most-requested and highly-anticipated Buffy-verse releases ever! Standing a life-sized 44 inches tall, Puppet Angel also features poseable arms with articulated fingers and a working mouth to recreate your favorite moments from the series - including removing Angel's puppet nose!







HALO 2009 WAVE 1 ACTION FIGURES

Once again, we've defied what you thought possible in action figures! Halo 3 is quickly becoming one of the most successful licensed lines ever produced by McFarlane Toys. Vendors coast-to-coa
st have been reporting quick sell-through; the figures are disappearing almost as soon as they reach store shelves. Insane detail. Off-the-charts articulation. Finally, the toys are worthy of the game.
Master Chief
Arbiter (Active Camo/Clear)
Elite Combat (Tan)
Spartan Soldier EOD (Red)
Spartan Soldier Security (Olive)

After Watchmen, What's Next?

I'm glad you asked that question! The nice folks at DC Comics have been pondering exactly that, and have come up with a list of clever, exciting, imaginative and challenging graphic novels to satisfy the discriminating funnybook aficionado.
