Each Month Diamond Comics puts out their catalog of comics & items shipping in the next two months (and sometimes beyond). While the massive tome is a one-stop shopping wonderland for the comics fan, sometimes the new and good stuff can get lost in the shuffle. That’s where Super-Fly steps in. Each month we go through and highlight the new and important stuff shipping that month, be it a new series, a new original graphic novel, an important creative team change or a new direction. We’ve got you covered! If you’re interested in the full Previews Experience, remember we do offer Previews free to all of our Subscription customers that would like it. If there’s anything you’d like to your subscription or would like to special order, drop us an email and we’ll get you hooked up. If you’re interested in our Subscription service, click the subscriptions tab at the top of the page.
We’ll be going through the June Previews on the June 8th edition of our weekly podcast. Click through the break to read the June edition of our Previews Digest (which requires Adobe Acrobat), and you can jump to each of the premiere publishers using the bookmark function on the left side of the Acrobat window.
Super-Fly Comics and Games is hosting it’s third, and possibly it biggest, Live Art Show June 12th from Noon to 5pm, which sets it right during the Yellow Springs June Street Fair. A number of artists from all over the area will be descending on the store, painting, drawing and exhibiting. Some may be accepting commissions and many will be selling pieces as well. All the while, our resident DJ, JFX316, will be playing complex mixes of Dubstep, Electronic, Hip Hop and whatever else into his remix focused, genre bending set, creating an atmosphere you won’t find at any other comic store.
In addition to the art show, since it’s Street Fair we’ll have our Back Issues at 50% off and all of our Graphic Novels will be 15% off! Plus you’ll have all the performance, crafts, giant turkey leg and people watching excitement that is Yellow Springs Street Fair! It’s an entire day’s worth of classic Yellow Springs fun!
Street Fair will be from 9 to 5, the main hours of the art show will be Noon to 5, and we’ll be open from 9 until 8!
Here’s this week’s haul of awesome comic goodness. This week is a Previews week, so if you want to get the jump on new series, toys and special orders you need to get on that! Or, you can sign up for our newsletter and get the Super-Fly Spotlight Previews delivered to you through the magic of the internet. It spotlights all new series, one-shots, creative team changes and other cool things that may get lost in the Big Book of Stuff.
If you missed it the first time around, or if you want to hold a mammoth slab of awesome in your hands, the WEDNESDAY COMICS hardcover is here. Trust me when I say it is *sizable,* and it holds a collection of comics from some of the best people in the business.SECRET AVENGERS #1 hits, with one of the wildest Avengers teams ever, written by the it’s-not-a-secret-he’s-so-awesome Ed Brubaker. Steve Rogers, Black Widow, War Machine, Beast, Nova, Moon Knight and the Irredeemable Ant-Man. The Marvel cosmic books take a back-seat to THE THANOS IMPERATIVE, where everyone’s favorite death-loving prune chin comes back from the beyond to kill everything. Zombie expert Max Brooks turns his eye to the real American heroes in G.I. JOE: HEARTS AND MINDS, DAZZLER shines in her own one-shot, THE GUILD continues it’s nerd-tastic origin story and Steve Niles introduces the MYSTERY SOCIETY.
The rest of this week’s stuff after the break!
