If you haven't checked out our new wall at all this month, now is the time to start! DC, Marvel and other publishers are putting our amazing events this entire summer!
This summer's batch of comics have been exceptionally great so far. That's not to say that they're not normally awesome, but the major and indie publishers are really giving it their A-Game. Here's just a few events and titles that are great reads.
DC's Rebirth has, so far, blown the staff away here at Fantasy Books. Every week, they're showing us fresh and exciting new approaches to the current DC universe that starte with the New 52. EVERYONE should read at least one of these books. New readers will find the Rebirth titles to be an easy and engaging entry point into the DC Universe, while old fans will rejoice in how Geoff Johns and other have reinvigorated the characters of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and pretty much any character in these comics. The best place to start is DC Universe Rebirth #1. We sold out of our first prints of this amazing issue within the first week, but we'll have 2nd printings as of 6/15/2016. Pick it up!
As for Marvel, they're showing us a new epic conflict that is redefining the MCU! Civil War II is a huge event in which heroes find themselves at odds when a new inhuman with the power to predict the future emerges. Will the Avengers use this awesome power to prevent catastrophes? Or is it their place to use such a power? Captain Marvel and Iron Man are deeply divided, and things are going to be pretty tense over the course of the summer! This 7-part title has been really interesting so far, and it's only getting better with additional issues. This an more from Marvel!
And there's tons more where that came from! If you're interested in getting comics over the summer, ask one of our associates about our pull and hold service. If you want all of a specific comic, we can hold each issue for you behind the counter, on the day that it comes out! If you like reading comics in the form of graphic novels or collected issues, we also have a new book program, just for you: for every 10 books that you buy at this location, get the average price of those 10 book in store credit to apply towards an 11th book. You can potentially get your 11th for free and then some! Definitely stop by this summer and pick up some reads!
