This week is a small week, but don’t be fooled! A small week can still have more big books than you can count. Including not one, but two, Mark Millar books in the form of STARLIGHT #1 and his and Quietly’s return to JUPITER’S LEGACY. Plus, new Warren Ellis in the form of MOON KNIGHT #1, Brubaker and Epting with VELVET #4 and the latest WALKING DEAD collection. That is a lot of things, but trust me, their is more beneath the cut!

ABHAY: These Aren’t That Good But Here’s Another Attempt at Capsule Reviews

Abhay Khosla

Eh, don’t feel like I did a great job on these, but here’s an attempt at some capsule reviews for THE WHITE SUITS #1, DEADLY CLASS #1-2, more just chit-chat than a review of SATELLITE SAM #6 which I didn’t care enough about to mention any of the actual details of (I think I really ate it on that one), FANTASTIC FOUR #1, and FOREVER EVIL: ARKHAM WAR #1 to 5.  There’s better stuff on the internet, right now, these are just bleh, but if you’re bored…

John Kane

As an ancient ladies’ fragrance ad had it, “Men Can’t Help Acting On Impulse”; which is why we have prisons. And, slightly more pertinently, why I bought this book of ye olde newspaper continuities. Repeat offenders will recall that recently I looked at a Hermes Press collection of Frank Robbins’ Johnny Hazard newspaper strips. Hopefully such folk will fail to recall that I was somewhat out of my depth and basically just said “Frank Robbins draws real nice!” in a number of different ways without even a hint of insight. In the uncharacteristically optimistic belief that I could hardly do any worse I thought I’d look at yet more old newspaper strips. This time out they are both about and by a woman. This means there’s every chance I’ll not only fail to say anything of use but I’ll also inadvertently offend fifty percent of the world’s population. Sigh, and this is how I relax; it’s no wonder I have more hair on my toes than on my head.

This a big week following a month of smaller weeks, so if you had been holding back the previous weeks, now is the time to go all in on comic books! High profile releases this week are DEADLY CLASS #2, the return of THE WAKE and HAWKEYE #15, but if those aren’t the books for you than I am sure we can find you something beneath the cut!

Hey there, everyone!  You miss us?  Well, good news, we’re back–all three of us (Graeme, me, and my terrifying vocal echo that haunts much of this podcast).  After the jump:  show notes and promises to do better!

Another week of comics appears! Though due to inclement weather conditions shipments for the whole of the west coast will be delayed twenty four hours but still shelved on Wednesday, so if you are an early morning comic buyer, maybe wait till the afternoon.

Now the fun stuff! With the debut of the first collection of Ales Kot and friend’s ZERO, along side some of our other favorites, like ALEX + ADA, and new comer UNDERTOW, this is a week you should not shy away from. Find the rest of the comics you can look forward to this week after the cut!

“Always Prepared. Always Ready.” BOOKS! Sometimes You Get What You’re Given And Just Make Do

John Kane

Okay, let’s stop pointing fingers, dry our eyes and just accept it’s a BONUS SKIP WEEK! (Bonus Booo!). Caught me on the hop a bit, I’ll admit. Unfortunately I haven’t anything in my head about comics but there are a couple of books I’ve been thinking about. Why not, eh? You never know your luck in a raffle. So, it’ll be a bit rough and ready this time out (yeah; no change there then) but I’ll probably find my flow after a couple of dozen words. Anyway, this…

All Wait, No What? The Skip Week’s Skip Week

Jeff Lester

Unrelated to this post — I just included it because it makes me happy every time I see it.

Hey, everyone:  Jeff here with a very big apology for everyone.  Last week, as per our schedule, Graeme and I talked comics for two hours.

Unfortunately, the person who was responsible for recording us did not manage to push the little button that *records* our conversations.  (That person will go unnamed…but only because it was me.  If it’d been Graeme, I would’ve given him up in a heartbeat.)

I thought about giving you a rough version of the show notes anyway, based on what I remembered (and I would’ve tried to be oh-so-clever and called them “show nots”) but I feel like that wouldn’t have been especially helpful.   So I decided to just leave it be.

On the up side, we usually get an extra-great essay from John Kane on our skip weeks, so maybe this will trick him into writing something else for the site this week?  And maybe when Graeme and I speak next week, not only will I hit record but I’ll try and mix it on the fly and get it super-early.

Anyhoo, our deepest apologies (by which I mean my deepest apologies, but once again I’m trying to drag Graeme into this even though he is entirely blameless) and thank you for your considerable patience!

It is another week of comics, I am sure you know you weren’t going to get off so easy as to not have new comics for a week! No! The big book this week is easily the third volume of PROPHET and a little thing called THE WALKING DEAD also comes out again this week. “Surely, there are more than two books this week,” you ask, and I respond, “of course!” Click that link below and you will see all the new comics for yourself!

It’s a Skip Week! (Booo!) So let’s see what falls out of my head (Yay!). Checking the Savage Critic’s mail bag I see several of you may have contacted me expressing intense distress that I have yet to tell you how 2013 panned out for Howard Victor Chaykin.  It was definitely several or none. It’s so hard to remember these things. So, hedging my bets I’ll tell you anyway…

James Robinson signing @ Outpost 2/26, 5-7 PM

Brian Hibbs

The first signing for Comic Outpost is a super-doozy: Industry legend James Robinson (who, fun fact, had his first GN release with LONDON’S DARK the same year I opened my first store) will be appearing to support FANTASTIC FOUR #1 (on day of release), as well as ALL-NEW INVADERS and his Image comic THE SAVIORS.  I couldn’t be more excited.

Comic Outpost is located at 2381 Ocean Ave in San Francisco.  There is buckets of free parking north of the store, and we literally have a stop of the K line streetcar right in front of the shop; we’re all of 8 stops on the underground from downtown, it is a short and easy hop.

(And thank you Jeff Lester for reminding me I didn’t post that here. Facebook is just too easy to fall back upon  — especially with two stores and sometimes-14 hour workdays and 7 days a week since 12/16 — I need to get a flow that works better, damnit!)

The new issue of THE SAVIORS came out today!

Wait, What? Ep. 144: The “Ass” in “Assemble”

Jeff Lester

Fuck yes, Shaolin Cowboy.

Hey, so it’s another installment of Wait, What?, and I think maybe this fortnightly thing is going to work out?  (Provided you don’t abandon us in droves or something…)  Whereas our last installment was two hours and us whingeing on about the news, this one is two hours and is us whingeing about comics we’ve read.  Brilliant!

After the jump, Jeff makes some brilliantly incorrect statements about Shaolin Cowboy in service of a perfectly good theory, Graeme fills us in on the most successfully monetized fanfic since 50 Shades of Grey, and we do that thing about the first twenty-five issues of Avengers that would finally allow an old man like me to type ‘smh’ except I have no idea how to pluralize that. (Plus, guest appearances by two of the more important writers in the science fiction and fantasy genres.)  In short: show notes!

Not the biggest week, about what one would expect from a fifth week, but the books hitting the streets are some the best that come out every month. There is some BLACK SCIENCE #3 , SAVIORS #2 and the always hotly anticipated SAGA, catch that before it goes into it’s regular hibernation. Those are books for all different  sci-fi tastes, but if you are looking something else it is likely represented just below the clicky click!

Hey, internet? Help me research?

Brian Hibbs

So I just got the 2013 BookScan data, but for me the biggest hole is ALWAYS “stuff that didn’t get categorized correctly” — supposed to be coded as “comics”, but, instead, it is listed as something else.  This happens the most frequently with “Memoir” books — I have to manually request things like Maus and Persepolis every year, because they’re not natively on the “Comics” list.

Usually, I spend a few days combing through the previous year’s invoices, hoping to spot something obvious, but this year, with the second store, I barely have time to write the BookScan column at all, let alone being fussy about trying to find those 1-2 books that are worth reporting on, but got missed.

SO: below the cut is a list of titles released in 2013 that BookScan has listed NOT COUNTING any books from Boom, Dark Horse, DC, Dynamite, IDW, Image, Kodansha, Marvel, Valiant, Viz, and Yen (essentially because those 11 pubs never seem to get miscoded, and it cuts the length of the list by about half!) — see if you can think of a 2013 release that you don’t see on this list, THAT MIGHT ALSO be one of the Top 1000 best-selling GNs through bookstores — figure about 2500 or so copies might be the right cut off.

I understand that there are some 1400 items below the cut, and the real likelihood of the crowdsourcing on this is likely to be low, but I figured it was a worth a shot.  What do you have for me, Internet?

A thought about “Free” Comic Book Day

Brian Hibbs

The first Saturday in May is coming soon, and with it Free Comic Book Day.

I Love Free Comic Book Day. Adore it.  It’s the happiest day of the year, as far as I am concerned. But one thing it very much isn’t is “free” for the retailer.

I count fifty-seven FCBD comics for 2014. If your retailer were to let you have one copy of each release, her cost would be $16.83. That doesn’t count the shipping, either. Figure about another $2.85 to get those comics into the store. The total, then? $19.68.

It’s just something to bear in mind when you rush down to FCBD — Just three comics for you can be over a dollar (depending on which books you pick) for your retailer.  And while most of us are happy to do the outreach (I am!), you should take a little pity on your local store when you make your selections, and don’t take things just because they are “free”, but because you actually want them!
