Star Wars Hits ComiXology Today!...

Marvel Comics did not waste any time making many of Dark Horse’s Star Wars comics available for purchase digitally on comiXology. Many Star Wars trades are available as of this morning. Of the trades available, I highly recommend Brian Wood’s Star Wars Vol. 1: In The Shadow of Yavin, The Star Wars (which presents Lucas’s original draft for Star Wars in comic book form), and Tag and Bink Were Here (a very funny take on the Star Wars universe). This is the first time Star Wars comics have appeared on comiXology, as Dark Horse has it own digital app separate from comiXology. I’m sure I’m not the only one surprised by this move, as I was under the impression that the new movie coming out in December and the new comic debuting from Marvel this month would negate many of these books from continuity. I’m especially surprised that Marvel released Brian Wood’s Star Wars series, as it seems very similar to the Star Wars comic Jason Aaron is writing for Marvel this month. Surprised, but happy. That Brian Wood comic is excellent. I highly recommend buying it. You can find all the Star Wars books released on comiXology today right...

Booster Gold Futures End, Comixology and a Hint of the Return of the Pre-Flashpoint DCU?...

Is DC Comics hinting at a return of the pre-Flashpoint DCU? First we got the announcement that the the Giffen/DeMatteis versions of Booster Gold and Blue Beetle were retuning in the pages Justice League 3000. This was met with overwhelmingly positive fan reaction. Then, on the final page of Superman: Doomed #2, we see shattered fragments of reality that are definitely not of Earth 0 in the New 52. Superman with his trunks on the outside, the 1980s Wolfman/Perez Teen Titans team in their 1980s outfits and the classic JSA, with a very pre-Crisis on Infinite Earths looking Huntress. None of the characters in the shards on this page are in their New-52 costumes. And now we noticed that on Comixology, Booster Gold Futures End #1 is filed under the pre-Flashpoint Booster Gold series!   Booster Gold Futures End #1 is also filed this way in DC’s own web store! While this isn’t an in-story hint, it is potentially very telling.  DC and Comixology could have easily given this Booster Gold comic a new volume. What makes this doubly interesting is that Booster Gold Futures End #1 is the first pre-Flashpoint that DC has published since the start of the New 52. Even Grant Morrison’s Batman Inc. was forced to renumber and restart with a new volume in the New 52 (and don’t even get us started on the pre-Flashpoint continuity errors that riddled that book). It’s been rumored in the past that the New-52 Booster Gold might remember the pre-Flashpoint DCU, because he was outside the timestream when Flashpoint occurred. Is Booster Gold the key unlocking the door to DC’s past? What do you think? Is DC hinting at the return of the pre-Flashpoint DCU? Written by Billy Henehan. Research by Dave...

Not at SDCC? No problem!...

Couldn’t make it to Comic Con International in San Diego this year? That doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the fun! Check out these sites to make your not-at-Comic-Con time more bearable! To celebrate SDCC’s 45th birthday, Comixology will be selling one digital graphic novel for $0.45 each day of SDCC. Thursday’s offering was an Amelia Cole comic, Friday’s is Love & Rockets: New Stories #1. Both are regularly $9.99 on Comixology, so this is quite a deal. You can access the deal here: http://comixology.tumblr.com/cci45. Check it both Saturday and Sunday for new deals! Are you kicking yourself because you can’t get a Star Wars Black Series Jabba the Hutt or Transfrormers Knights of Unicron set? Hasbro puts up a very limited amount of their SDCC exclusives for sale at hasbrotoyshop.com after Comic Con is over. Unfortunately, they don’t announce in advance what day or what time it will take place. So from Monday on, get ready to hit f5 all day. Marvel is giving away six free Marvel Infinite digital comics here. Deadpool, Wolverine and Iron Man. You can’t beat this price! Midtown Comics in NYC is having their annual Not at Comic Con Party on Saturday, July 26 at their downtown store on Fulton St. Everything in the store is 30% off from 11 AM to 12 noon, and 20% for the rest of the day.

NYCC 2013: Thursday Panel & Screening HIghlights...

Unless you have an Exhibitor or Pro Pass, New York Comic Con opens for you at 3 PM on Thursday, October 10. Thursday will be the least crowded day of the con, since it’s open only to people with 4-Day Passes and people who specifically bought Thursday passes. Because of this, Thursday is a great day to nab the hotter con exclusives or meet your favorite creator. Just be sure to check the NYCC website to make sure that creator is there that day. The Panel and Screenings schedule is pretty light on Thursday, but there are definitely some that are worth checking out. 3:15 – 4:15 – Comixology Submit: The Future of Self Publishing – 1A08 3:15 – 4:15 – Protect It and Publish It: Creating and Protecting Your Comic Book Property – 1A03 If you’re interested in creating your own comics, Thursday has some panels aimed right at you. Unfortunately, these two conflict directly with each other. Fortunately, they’re close enough to each other that you could pop into one at the start and move to the other later. Comixology is the giant in the room when it comes to digital distribution, but if your concerns are more legal in nature, you may want to hit up the Protect It and Publish It panel. 3:15 – 4:15 – Women in Comics – 1A15 This looks like it will be an interesting discussion regarding female protagonists in comics. Plus, Becky Cloonan will be there. 3:45 – 4:45 – DC Comics 101: Essentials – 1A06 Or…”We’re not just the New 52! Promise!” Going by the description of this panel, it looks like it’s DC pitching you its back list. 3:45 – 4:45 – 60 Years of Bazooka Joe – 1A01 Anyone else think the...

The Best of Marvel’s 700 #1s...

Last month, Marvel and Comixology announced they would be giving away the #1 issue of 700 Marvel titles through their joint digital comics service. This quickly crashed the Comixology servers and the program was suspended. The program is reopening today for readers who signed up on Comixology’s website earlier in the week (check your inbox today for an email from Comixology if you signed up). The different #1 issues available to download span decades; you can download the Avengers first appearance as well as the first issue of a new Avengers series that debuted earlier this year. 700 comics can be a little daunting. Here are what Tuesday Night Movies feels are your best choices: Hawkeye #1 – You might recognize this from our Best Comics of 2012 post. Hawkeye is the best series that Marvel currently produces. The creative team of Matt Fraction and David Aja are working magic on the page. When I recommend this series to people, their reaction is usually, “Hawkeye? The guy from the Avengers? With the arrows?” Yes, yes and yes. This series is so much more than that though. It focuses on what Hawkeye does when he’s not with the Avengers. It’s very street level. His main antagonist is the Russian mob. After you download the first issue for free, you may want to buy the just released Hawkeye, Vol. 1: My Life as a Weapon, which collects the first five issues of the series. Avengers Arena #1 – If you like The Hunger Games or Battle Royale, I highly recommend checking out this series. 16 heroes have been captured by murderous villain Arcade and taken to an island where they’re told they have to battle it out to the death. I won’t lie, when this series was first announced I thought...
