Spotlight on THURSDAY, July 2 Arrivals

That's right, I said Thursday!.

Due to something called a "stat" on Wednesday we can't find anyone willing to deliver our goods. Go figure!


Anyhoo, new arrivals will be on Thursday but don't allow that to discourage you from dropping by on Canada Day. We know nothing of "stats" (other than a shortened 11-5 day). Because you are a loyal blogophile just mention you read it on the blog and we will reward you with a free
Batman & Robin #1 (while quantities last).

As usual you can click here to be taken to our revamped New Arrivals page where you can click on thumbnails of next week's goodies to see pics and descriptions. Here are just a few of the titles shipping:

Zombies Spotted At Curious!

Watch out, game fans -- we've had reliable reports that a fresh wave of never-before-seen Zombies has been spotted at Curious Comics! Details are a little sketchy, but this shambling horde seems made up of fat guys, surfer dudes, doctors, and many, many more.

Don't let the fact that they're only 28mm tall lull you into a false sense of security -- these rotten little creeps are guaranteed to terrorize your gaming table. Just drop them into the miniatures wargame of your choice and retire to a safe distance to appreciate the mayhem. And with the smart folks at Wargames Factory shipping these shambling undead with multiple zombie body parts per model sprue, the brave wargamer can mix & match the bits to create almost 1000 completely unique zombies! Scary, huh?

Reborn #1


We can't see what it looks like. We're not allowed to know who stars in the series. We don't know what will happen in it.

But what we do know about Reborn #1 is that it's the first of a 6-issue limited series coming from Marvel Comics this July. We know that this mystery project will be brought to the page by A-list creators Ed Brubaker (Captain America, Daredevil) and Bryan Hitch (Ultimates). We also know that Marvel is ramping up their publicity machine, anticipating a surge of mainstream interest along the lines of what happened at the end of Civil War. I'm sure that everyone remembers the end of Civil War...?

Interested yet? Make sure you don't miss out on... um, whatever this is... and get Reborn #1 added to your pull list today!
