As we head into Fall, there’s not that much going on this week (unless you’re excited about that Owl movie for some reason. C’mon son, they’re owls). Of course, there’s never a dull moment here, as we’ve had a our first title change in the Super-Fly arm wrestling league, and a shocking development as Super-Fly Arm Wrestling was bought by Lee “Leroy” Rodriguez of Panels on Pages fame (confused? Then you aren’t a fan of us on Facebook or listening to our weekly podcast, which is available just a click away up in the header).
Now, that’s not to say that we don’t have excitement coming up. On October 9th there will be the Fall Yellow Springs Street Fair, and we’ll be having our next Live Art show during Street Fair. Plus, on October 23rd, local comic creator studio Twilight Star is going to be celebrating its one year anniversary in our store. Look for more information on those in the weeks to come.
That said, this week the AVENGERS get a roadmap to the upcoming future of the Heroic Age, the villain pulling all the strings of the Ultimate Universe is revealed in ULTIMATE MYSTERY, Matt Fraction and Pasqual Ferry begin their run on THOR, FLASH races towards the Flashpoint, HACK/SLASH concludes My First Maniac (hopefully with no printing errors this time), the SMURFS return in a pair of graphic novels (including “The Purple Smurf,” which is basically just Smurfs: 28 Days Later) and Darwyn Cooke continues his adaptation of the Parker series of novels in THE OUTFIT.

As we get ready for this month’s live art show (This Saturday, the 18th, from 2p to 7p) here’s this week’s new comics.
MORNING GLORIES second issue is even better than the first (I know you don’t think it’s possible, but it is), HACK/SLASH wraps up “My First Maniac,” X-23 makes her own way in her own ongoing series (hopefully they’ll be less underage hooking this time around), JURASSIC PARK: REDEMPTION continues to show us that making dinosaurs is a bad idea, there’s another AMAZING SPIDER-MAN wherein Doctor Octopus shows off his pediatric skills, the BIRDS OF PREY journey to Thailand and there’s a triple-shot of Brian Wood this week with DV8, DMZ & NORTHLANDERS.

Now that we’re all done with our Labor for the year and have packed up all of our white linens, it’s now time to head into Fall, that weirdest of Ohio seasons. What that means for us (aside from having your whole wardrobe on standby), is that comics are pushed back until Thursday. It’s never a good time, but let’s try to make lemons for what will be one of the last of the Thursday comics days there are (don’t know what we’re talking about? Check out the latest episode of our podcast, where we talk about the change Diamond is making to comic shipments this year).
This week we get not just one but TWO issues of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, wrapping up the “One Moment in Time” saga and kicking off a saga that was almost called “The Sinister 666.” Speaking of amazing, the western horror THE SIXTH GUN continues its inaugural run, GREEN LANTERN faces off against Orange Lantern Hector Hammond, THE THANOS IMPERATIVE continues as the cosmic avengers fight the cancerverse, BATMAN AND ROBIN continue the final battle against the Black Glove and Wolverine’s irascible kid DAKEN: DARK WOLVERINE, get’s his own series (that’s what it’s called. He’s not so pretentious that he has a colon and post-script to his name). Plus, we’ve got games a plenty coming in, like the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS RAVENLOFT BOARD GAME and LEGO GAMES as well.
