Top Pick of the Week!

Buck Rogers #0

Classic outer-space adventure hero Buck Rogers is the latest pop culture icon to join Dynamite Comics' ever-growing stable of licensed characters. Fresh off a redesign by Alex Ross, DC Comics mainstay writer Scott Beatty and artist Carlos Rafael deftly absorb the character's long history and deliver a surprisingly fresh and funny first chapter in what is already shaping up to be a fun ride.

And all this can be yours for just $0.25! What more could you want? Nuthin', I tells ya! Grab it while it's still on the stands!

First Read of the Week!

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: ECHOES OF NEW CAPRICA


Anyone still smarting after the series finale of what was the best science fiction TV show around -- that's the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica, in case you hadn't guessed -- can numb the pain a little with this week's release of Echoes of New Caprica. Featuring three stories from the traumatizing period the refugee Colonists spent under Cylon occupation on the barren New Caprica, this book seperates itself from the various Dynamite Comics BSG series with an instantly recognizable Japanese manga art style. The stories are 100% Galactica however, and fans will not be disappointed.

This volume even features a story written by original Apollo and new series Tom Zarek himself, Richard Hatch. What more could you ask for? Highly recommended!

Here are the top 10 best selling comics for March courtesy of DCD:
  • 1 DARK AVENGERS #3
  • 2 NEW AVENGERS #51
  • 3 BATMAN BATTLE FOR THE COWL #1
  • 4 WOLVERINE #71
  • 5 ULTIMATUM #3
  • 6 UNCANNY X-MEN #507
  • 7 MIGHTY AVENGERS #23
  • 8 JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #31
  • 9 ULTIMATE WOLVERINE VS HULK #3
  • 10 BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #23

By comparison, here are the 10 best selling comics at Curio
us Comics Johnson St:
  • 1 BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #23
  • 2 DARK AVENGERS #3
  • 3 WOLVERINE #71

Note that Buffy the Vampire Slayer is #1 and has in fact been our top selling comic for the last year (except for the many printings of the Obama Spider-Man issue). I guess Victoria has a disproportionate number of Joss Whedon fans.
