Comics & Items Shipping Wednesday, May 5th

Thanks to everyone who came down for Free Comic Book Day and helped make it our best day ever! Keep an eye on this space for more info about the awesomeness that went down this past Saturday. Also a big thanks to Rusty Shackles, who had all kinds of awesome prints available for people to buy (you can now see a couple of them up at the shop now) and designed our exclusive Free Comic Book Day shirt (which is still available for those of you who didn’t make it; check our on-line store soon for details), plus also thanks to Joe Pruitt who was drawing and sketching all day for folks and selling his kick-ass art as well.

Remember, just because FCBD is over, that doesn’t mean the events stop here! IRON MAN 2 is out this week, and the Super-Fly crew will be going to the midnight show this Thursday at the Regal Cinemas in Beavercreek. If you want to join us or meet-up there, let us know! The more the merrier! This Saturday, the 8th is our Second monthly Art show, where resident DJ JFX 316 will be spinning his latest mixtape and our local artist people will be drawing, painting, sketching and doing all the cool stuff that artists do for you, the viewing public. If you play your cards right, you’ll be able to commission or buy some great art from great artists. It’s a great time to hang out and have fun from 2p to 7p this Saturday.

So now we return to our weekly scheduled new comic info. The biggun this week is BRIGHTEST DAY #1, where we begin to explore the mystery of the White Lanterns. Also important is the new ASTONISHING SPIDER-MAN/WOLVERINE series, written by Jason Aaron. Before you get all complaney that it’s another Spider-Man or Wolverine title/spinoff, remember that this is Jason Aaron, an up and coming superstar that has made Wolverine: Weapon X one of the best Wolverine series *ever,* and has brought non-stop awesome to everything he’s touched. For those of you who picked up the prelude this Saturday, you can continue the 4-issue weekly Superman event WAR OF THE SUPERMEN that kicks off this week. Batman vs. Robin wraps up in BATMAN & ROBIN, the Twilight story wraps up in BUFFY SEASON 8, Mike Allred takes on Zombies in IZOMBIE and Tim Drake finishes off his battle with Ra’s al Ghul in RED ROBIN.

The rest of this week’s haul is after the jump! Continue reading

Next Big Event: Live Art Show This Saturday May 8th

Thanks to everyone that came out to Free Comic Book Day and made it a huge success. Super big thanks to the 501st Storm Trooper Legion for entertaining the troops. It was a crazy day and a great time. But, onward and upward. Our events can’t stop. Won’t stop. Don’t stop. The next big event is the second Super-Fly Live Art Show. Early reports are that we’ll have as many, if not more, artists then the last show. Our resident DJ, JFX316, is working up a setlist of pretty off the wall music to set the tone. If that’s not enough, word is that he’ll have copies of his new mixtape, “The Halls of Insomnia” FOR FREE!

We’ll be starting at 2pm and going through the day until 7pm. There’s still time, artists. If you’d like to participate, contact us at and let us know what you are doing and how much space you need. Art lovers, come in and support the artists by buying some of their wares. Music lovers, wonder at the diverse combination of music coming out of the sound system. Comic lovers…we’ll be selling comics. It’s kind of what we do here.

Yet another event from you friendly neighborhood comic store, Super-Fly Comics.
