Top 5 Exclusives of WonderCon 2013...

WonderCon starts today and will be running through the entirety of this weekend in Anaheim, CA! The exclusives list isn’t as extensive as San Diego Comic-Con or New York Comic Con, but there are still some very cool items available. Here’s what we think are the best. Aardman Batman and Robin Action Figures 2-Pack (DC/Graphitti Designs) Price: $39.95, Limited to 2000 Different than the Aardman Batman NYCC 2012 exclusive, this Aardman Batmn sports the classic blue and grey uniform. Also included is an Aardman Robin, whose costume looks like a cross between Dick Grayson’s and Tim Drake’s Robin costumes. If you’re not interested in an Aardman Robin and want to save some money, you can still order the NYCC exclusive black and gray costumed Aardman Batman directly from Graphitti Designs’s website for $25. 3.75″ Larfleeze and Guy Gardner Action Figures 2-Pack (DC/Graphitti Designs) Price: $29.95, Limited to 5,000 This 2-pack looks better designed than the John Stewart and Atrocitus 2-pack from NYCC 2012. Guy looks like Guy. I love the smirk on his face. Orange Lantern Larfleeze looks great. And you get a figure of Larfleeze’s orange construct minion Glomulus. If you missed the John Stewart and Atrocitus 2-pack from NYCC, you can find that on Graphitti Designs’s website for $25, $5 less than this set. Personally, I’d rather pay the $5 extra for this set if I had to choose between the two. Will Eisner’s Spirit Artist Edition: Limited Signed and Numbered (IDW) Price: $300, Limited to 100 If you want this, you may have had to order it already. IDW took pre-orders for this book on their website on 3/27 and had it listed as sold out on 3/28. If you’re interested in buying this, I recommend making the IDW booth your first stop at...

Best Comic Books of 2012...

Tuesday Night Movies presents a look back at the best comic books of 2012. These are the books that reminded us in the past year why we’re comics fans.  Billy says… Hawkeye– If you are not reading Hawkeye, then you are missing out on Marvel’s best series. Matt Fraction and David Aja show what Purple Arrow does when he’s not on missions with the Avengers. Fraction’s scripts are thrilling and witty. Aja’s artwork is amazing. The way he breaks down the page story-wise is unlike anything being published today. I defy anyone to read issue #1 and not become a fan. I love this series so much that I want a pair of purple Chuck Taylors.   The Walking Dead– 2012 was the year where I went from reading The Walking Dead in the collected softcover books to buying the individual issues. The build-up to issue #100 was just too much for me. I used to be able to wait. I can’t anymore. When part 1 of Something to Fear was released in issue #97, I had to read it immediately. Issue #100 was a punch to gut. I love this series so much.   Spider-Men– The Spider-Man from the Marvel Universe, Peter Parker, meets his Ultimate Comics counterpart, Miles Morales, in this awesome adventure. Which was the better scene? Peter interacting with Ultimate Gwen Stacey or Ultimate Aunt May getting some more time with Peter? Uncanny X-Force– Rick Remender, you magnificent bastard. What an end-cap to an amazing series. This series will make you a fan of Deadpool and Fantomex if you aren’t already. Remender’s Uncanny X-Force is an instant classic, and is easily the best X-Men comic to be released in years. When’s the omnibus for this series coming out? Batman– Scott...
