SDCC ’16 Had Some Cool Stuff

A lot of big things happened at San Diego Comic Con this year, and while there’s entirely too much to discuss right here, there’s juuuuuust enough space for my favorite trailers from the event.

They’re in no particular order. Or maybe they are.  Suspense!

Justice League Action:


Wonder Woman:

The Defenders:

BCC 2016 is Coming

Friendly reminder that the 2016 edition of Boston Comic Con is just over two months away, Friday, August 12th through Sunday August 14th.

The list of artists jam-packed with top-tier talent. A small number of the names that jump out at me are:
Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, Mark Waid, Brian Azzarello, Rafael Albuquerque, Amanda Conner, Marv Wolfman, Jae Lee & John Cassaday.

Time to plan ahead!

PS: William Shatner will also be there, for anyone interested in paying to talk to a man who definitely does not want to talk to you. Goose bumps!

Netflix Finally Making Series for “The Punisher”

If you’re like me, you’re loving Netflix’s Daredevil series. Season one was terrific, season two (thus far) is even better. A big reason for that is the inclusion of the Punisher in season two. He’s interesting on his own, as well as the anti-heroic peanut butter to Daredevil’s chocolate justice.

What took Netflix and Marvel so long to pull the trigger on this?  More importantly, when are we going to get the first season?

Link to the full story here.

Five Years!

Diamond recently sent a message to Mike to celebrate MCS’ five year anniversary with the distributor, and he wanted to thank everyone for their partnership and patronage that makes this whole big/little thing possible.

5 years

He also said that as thanks, the next time any one of us stops by to pick up a batch of comics, you may take one item of your choice from his house. And he means anything.

The second hardcover volume of Blacksad? Done.

Circuit breaker? Perfect.

Jon? Please and thank you (no returns).

Denver Broncos Clinch #1 Seed in AFC

Mike wanted me post something to remind you guys that football cards still exist, and that we can in fact get them from Diamond!

Football cards combine Mike’s two passions in life; collecting things and refusing to engage his family at the dinner table because he’s too busy crying over box scores of Bronco’s games from the mid-’90s.

For example, the following is a comic of John Elway:

This is what happens when to you ask a Patriots fan to do something for you after your team just beat them out for the top seed.

From what I understand stand he was like the Tom Brady of Colorado but with less Super Bowl rings. Retro!

We don't just sell you comics…we sell you YOUR comics.
