3/6/19 - Death Dealer Vader? A New Immortal Hulk, Plus Green Arrow Ends!

Something, something, shake DC Universe to it's core. If this cover is any indication, a Legion ring gets pelted with cranberries. 
The last arc of Papergirls starts here. It will be missed.

No. Really. This is a thing that you can buy from us. I know. We truly live in a gilded age. 
I love this series. Here's a tie-in to the Hunted story line. Honestly...not a real important story tie-in. Easy to skip if it's a tight week. 
Well...Of course I went hard on this series. I don't know if it's going to suck or not, but come on. Look at it. It's a crazy suburban story of a Skrull family. You've got to give it one issue at least. 
I was worriying that we wouldn't have anymore Domino comics, but they just rebranded it as a team book. Gail Simone is back. It's fine. Get back on board. Or try it for the first time. Simone is perfect for this book. 
More weird stuff from Immortal Hulk. Still no sign of him solving problems with Hostess Fruit Pies...but I bet that's just around the bend. 
You can never have too many patches...
Take that Marvel History! That's what you get for being so imaginative and inspiring. Dinks. You like Paul Scheer of NTSCSUV and How Did This Get Made fame? You like Cosmic Ghost Rider? Do what I do and combine them! Can Sheer write comics? Does it matter? I think that's what that other guy listed as writer is for. He'll fix it. 
Yeah. That cover sells me on at least one issue. Holy crap. I need that as a back tattoo. 
New Waxwork Records!
What a sweet little angel. 
I'm working on a huge comic project with Christian DiBari on art. It's called "Rad Wraith" and it's a supernatural skateboarding revenge story. Follow us @theradwraith if you want to see what we're up to.

Coast City Newsletter For January, 23rd 2019

Rebooting a series as beloved as Buffy seems nearly impossible. This book NAILS IT. Starting from scratch in 2019, you get the characters you love through a new lens. SO GOOD.
I love the BC Avengers. This one is the story of BC Iron Fist, the first ever lady to punch a dragon. There's an army of Gorgorillas too.

Holy Crap! So excited for this one...
Guardians with Cosmic Ghost Rider and Beta Ray Bill? GIMME!!!  My most anticipated series of the year. Totally lived up to the hype. 

 
I know. Nobody's surprised that I'm stoked about a horror book. Well I am. Ewing of Immortal Hulk fame. Great stuff. 
I don't just screen print shirts. I also make patches, magnets and pins...
This is a well worn concept. Future, post apocalyptic versions of classic literature characters. Had very low hopes for it, but it turned out to be incredible. Give it a shot. 
   Ever since Dark Horse lost the Star Wars license, they've been putting big talent into their remaining licenses. Meaning Alien, Robocop, Predator, and Terminator have been GREAT. Alien especially. I've loved every book they've put out for the last 3 years. I'm sure this will be no exception. 
Oh...those Blossoms. Like everyone in Riverdale they're big fans of Satan. A story of sibling rivalry, where only one can be the anti-christ. 
New Waxwork Records!
This series is great fun. If you like Shazam...This comic is so much like one of the DC animated shows of the nineties or early 2000's. If that's a thing you're into...definitely check it out.

Aquaman #43 (New Series Starts)
Well, Aquaman got knocked on his head, and now is suffering from double secret amnesia. He has a new life under the name, "Moisty Joe Wetpants". No longer king of the ocean, he spends his days working out and conditioning his hair. I'm sure the real version much better, but I didn't have time to read it... (I will say that this artist is primo, and Kelly Sue is no slacker either. I have lots of faith that this is going to be a memorable run, and this is an easy starting point for the character)
Freedom Fighters #1

Oh Earth X. You're one of those Grant Morrison dealies where the Nazis won WWII. These Axis dinks think they're pretty cool right now, but Uncle Sam's been drinking cheap corn liquor and he's in the mood to let freedom ring, in the form of a boot to some ratzi asses. Unfortunately, they have an army of plastic men, and some crazy robot crap. READ THIS BOOK!!! 
We have a Poultrygeist shirt! Based on, and officially licensed by, Troma. Art by me and TMNT artist Steve Lavigne. Plus, 2 new shop designs! 
Defenders : The Best Defense #1


Have you been saying, "Sure there's a new Defenders book, but when is the Hulk going to straight-up eat some dude's face?" Well. That would be right here.  Plus, Namor wears the Silver Surfer and flies through space. Guys, comics are crazy. 
Infinity Wars : Fallen Guardian #1

 Oh, boy. These guys can't make a crossover without killing off a beloved character. So... Here's the story of who they off.
What I can say, without spoilers is that it's a smart, silly, fun story that's full of life affirming charm. It pays off a character's legacy without killing them foolishly. I loved this book.
Spider-Geddon #5

Holy crap! There's a payoff to this book. No! REALLY!!! There's an ending that is pretty satisfying, and it opens up the possibility for more shenanigans in the future. I'm downright shocked. Good on you spider people. 
The Best Defense Parts Three and Four... 
This is a Defenders series... From the way they marketed it, I feel like they were trying to hide that fact. Not absolutely sure...Either way, if you want more of this, last week's Immortal Hulk #1, and Namor #1 were part of this thing. Doctor Strange is an Old Man Logan treatment, with him old and broken fighting Dormamu's devil dogs. Pretty great. Silver Surfer was trippy and awesome. 
Nightmare on Elm Street Accessory Set! 

There's a Freddy TV, a Freddy Worm, plus the street signs. This set is so freakin' cool. 
New Waxwork Records!
Uncanny X-men #6
Craziness abounds, with new Age of Apocalypse style horsemen, X-Man and Legion all going at it. Love it. 

 

Tank Girl : Action Alley #1

Seriously...This is a new ongoing Tank Girl Series for the first time in 30 years? They really need to take better care of this property. This book is fun, and more akin to the Dark Horse era, than the real ultra-artsy stuff that was coming out in the late 2000's. Fun weird stuff, plus the origin of the mutant kangaroos!
When hell is full, a single, non-articulated, rubber elf will roam the earth.  It's mouth will never close. It's arms will never bend. It's legs will never be seen with it's torso. Mostly it will jiggle. Dan (Grizzly Adams) Haggerty stars. And smokes. A bunch. In typical Christmas movie fashion, the plot mostly revolves around incestuous nazis trying to bring about the end of the world by mating a virgin with an elf. This must be the war on Christmas I keep hearing about. So, grab a carton of Camels, stack your donuts just so, and get ready for Matt and Tristan to delve into the seedy depths of 1989's Elves.
