THE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW
MIDTOWN PRESENTS: DAVE GIBBONS
Join us on Thursday, October 30th when we’ll welcome Dave Gibbons to our Times Square store. Mr. Gibbons, the veteran artist and writer, whose many credits include collaborations with Frank Miller (Give Me Liberty/Martha Washington) and, of course, Alan Moore (Watchmen, Superman: For The Man Who Has Everything), will be signing for fans from 5 – 7pm. This special event will celebrate the release of the new retrospective work, Watching the Watchmen from Titan Books. The ultimate companion to a true masterpiece, Watching the Watchmen goes behind the scenes on the creation of the seminal work, offering rare glimpses of early Watchmen sketches, character designs, portfolio art and much more. Be sure to check out our special Watchmen page on MidtownComics.com to keep up with all of the books and merchandise being released as part of the build up to the premiere of the Watchmen movie next March. But first, make plans to stop by Times Square on Thursday, October 30th for our next big signing at Midtown!
‘TIS THE SEASON (NO, NOT THAT ONE)
With Halloween fast approaching, Marvel and DC both have books out this week to help comics fans get into the spirit of the season. First up, DC releases their annual DC Universe Halloween Special, featuring Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and others, in tales of terror by writers such as Mark Verheiden and Brian Reed, and drawn by artists like Trevor Hairsine, Duncan Rouleau, with a cover by Gene Ha. Meanwhile, Marvel releases Haunt of Horror: Lovecraft, the Premiere Hardcover edition of Richard Corben’s eerie adaptations of the poems and short stories of H.P. Lovecraft. Fans may want to also take another look at Corben’s previous Haunt of Horror comics adapting the works of Edgar Allan Poe.
FINAL SECRET CRISIS INVASION!
Final Crisis and Secret Invasion both return this week, as the mega-crossover-events move closer to their (presumably) Universe-altering conclusions. Final Crisis #4 again features the work of Grant Morrison and J.G Jones, this time joined by Carlos Pacheco. Morrison also brings us the 40 page one-shot Fianl Crisis Submit. Over at Marvel, Brian Michael Bendis and Leinil Yu are back with the penultimate issue of Secret Invasion, with the action spilling over into the pages of Secret Invasion Amazing Spider-Man #3, New Avengers #46 and Thunderbolts #125.
THE BOYS - SIGNED BY GARTH ENNIS
Reminder: The first three trade paperback collections of The Boys SIGNED BY GARTH ENNIS are still available, exclusively from Midtown. The first 2 volumes are even available for just $29.99 (originally $36.98)! Each book also comes with a certificate of authenticity. Dynamite Entertainment’s The Boys, by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, has been one of – if not the most – talked about comics since its’ debut. Combining elements from some of the creators’ previous works – including The Pro, Transmetropolitan and Hitman - with a fresh take on the world of “Supes”, this book continues to win over new fans on its’ way towards “out Preacher-ing Preacher.”
