To The Comic Book Store #24

The weekly run to the comic book store is seriously the highlight of my week; well unless the girlfriend is available sometime during the week, then it gets knocked to number two.

This week was less eventful than last though; minus the pothead trying to sell a Hank Aaron baseball card of course (but that's another story).

So without further delay here is our swag for this week...

To The Comic Book Store #23

This week's run to the comic book store was, as usual, not a disappointment. Yes it was crowded around the free comics and we had to wait to get near, but we're use to this, plus it gives us time to browse the rest of the store.

Note to self, stay away from the Warhammer 40K stuff.

We also got to hear a great conversation about whether or not there should be Dune comic books?

Sadly though we wanted to pick up one new comic and they were already sold out. This is a give and take situation; we didn't get the comic but it appears to be gaining popularity so it won't be shelved anytime soon.

However we did come away with some good free issues, check'em out below.


Star Wars - Darth Bane Books (Squidoo Lenses)

Check out our new Squidoo links for the Star Wars - Darth Bane books by Drew Karpyshyn.

Dune Comic Books?

Do you remember what you were doing back when Dune released in 1984? No? Well I know where I was; not even born.

Twenty seven years later though people are still talking about Dune which may or may not have anything to do with the remake in the works (2014).

The question here though isn't about the movie but rather "Would Dune make for a good comic book setting/series?"

This was asked of the two employees at our local comic book store (Coliseum of Comics) by a woman who knows the son of an artist in the industry (didn't catch a name) who wants to break into the business and she was helping to find a setting for his work; being a fan of Dune and a writer herself, she thought this would be the best way for him/them to go.

Both the employees, and myself, agreed that this was not a route an up and comer wants to take. Back in 1984, possibly; 2011 not so much.

"But the remake, remember the remake will be out soon" she cried a little on the upset side. Again they informed her that if, if the movie was a success it still wouldn't make the sales she would be hoping for and the majority of those purchasing issues would only be die hard Dune fans.

So yes you would sell a few copies of a Dune comic but don't plan on retiring off of it.

What do you all think? Should there a Dune comic and more importantly would you buy it?

To The Comic Book Store #21

Oh Wednesday how we love you so! Actually, we love our local comic book store (Coliseum Of Comics) and their promotion of four (4) FREE comics (with no purchase necessary).

Surprisingly we made it out with out buying anything this week; pretty hard to do considering Marvel's Fear Itself #1 and Deadpool Family - One Shot were both released today.

But we did come away with some really interesting swag this week...

Ultraverse: Exiles vs X-Men #0
