Happy 75th birthday, Batman!

Remember last year, when we showed you that awesome Superman animated short? Here's something similar, this time starring Batman Beyond:

If you miss Batman Beyond (the cartoon), remember that you can buy Batman Beyond (the comic). You can also sign up for Future's End, the upcoming time-travel miniseries that looks to feature him pretty heavily.

Become an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. - for free!

Marvel Comics has teamed up with CafePress to offer free(ish) S.H.I.E.L.D. ID badges.

Granted, the official Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. website offered something similar, but that was just a digital file - this is a real, honest-to-goodness physical ID badge. Impress your friends! Intimidate your enemies! Earn the pity of your non-nerdy family members!

Now, it's not "free" free: you have to pay $1.25 in shipping (and any applicable taxes), but that's fair. They're sending you a real item! So just go to the site, upload a photo and fill out your information!

JUST ARRIVED - Star Trek Attack Wing Wave 5 Ships

Just arrived at the store.
Finally Voyager and the Borg !!


Every year FREE COMIC BOOK DAY has one or two comics that are MUST HAVE for true collectors.  This year is no different.  To launch the new DC Comic's epic weekly serie FUTURE'S END #0 is the hottest book to be available at this year's FCBD.

Truthfully, I was not sold on this series until I read this #0 issue (yes, store ownership has it's privileges) but after reading it I added the weekly book to my pulls list.

So make sure if you only pick up one book this year on May 3 it's this one.

GEEK WEAR - New T-shirts Have Arrived

We were originally going to debut our new t-shirts on FREE COMIC BOOK but they arrived early and we thought they were so cool let's make them available now.

Stop in and check them out, 15 different styles and a variety of sizes.

If we don't have the size you need let us know we should be able to get it within a week.

How will Wolverine die?

Have you heard? Wolverine only has three months to die.

Nobody knows how he's going to bite it yet, so we put together a list of ways it might happen:

  1. Chokes on a ham sandwich
  2. The Punisher throws him into an electric fence, and somehow it vaporizes him.
  3. Wolverine gets nuked. Three years later, it turns out he survived because he burrowed underground.
  4. Wolverine has to go. His home planet needs him. NOTE: Wolverine dies on the way back to his home planet.
  5. He drinks Gatorade in front of Bobby Bouchet.
  6. Autoerotic asphyxiation. To avoid embarrassment, Professor X tells the team that Magneto did it. The team forever wonders why Magneto strangled Wolverine with his own underwear.
  7. Wolverine is eaten by a grue.
  8. A brand new hero receives lots of media promotion, and kills Wolverine in a fight. All of the other heroes say, "Wow! This guy looks really strong! He's totally in our face! We should follow his exploits every month!" (his new series is cancelled after 6 issues)
  9. A Scottish guy with a French accent lops off Wolverine's head.
  10. He runs out of time in World 8-1.
  11. Wolverine meets Jean Grey by a lakeside, and she atomizes him off-camera. Nobody cares.
  12. Wolverine dies in a throwaway panel in a big crossover event. Due to the confusing art, it is hard to tell what happened.
  13. Majin Buu turns him into a cookie and eats him.
  14. Wolverine wanders onto the set of A Game of Thrones.
  15. Joss Whedon gets depressed again.
  16. Joss Whedon gets in a good mood again.
  17. The Hulk finally gets his revenge.
  18. Aunt May gets hurt. Mephisto offers Peter Parker another deal.
  19. Some bad guy with guns shoot Wolverine. Nobody brings up his healing factor.
  20. Wolverine gets cancer, the only thing that can never be healed (except for when it can).
  21. Wolverine gets another inspirational affliction, and dies so the comic writers can feel like they've done a lot of good in the world.
  22. Wolverine forgets to input the Konami Code.
  23. Gollum throws Wolverine into the volcano.
  24. He trips and falls down the stairs.
  25. He pisses off Heisenberg.
  26. He dates The Green Lantern.
  27. A big, tough monster shows up from out of nowhere and beats everybody else up. Wolverine fights the monster, and they both die. Then they both get resurrected. The big tough monster gets overused until nobody cares anymore. Also, there's an edgy new "teen" Wolverine.
  28. Hugh Jackman retires. Wolverine dies off-camera.
  29. Jason gets revenge for his momma.
  30. Wolverine dies of-camera in an inter-company crossover that, due to legal reasons, can never be referenced again.
  31. Wolverine teams up with Batman. Learns what happens to at least half of the Robins.
  32. A kid throws something at Wolverine. He falls and accidentally breaks his neck against a rock.
  33. Hank Pym bites off his head.
  34. He gets claustrophobic and shoots himself out an airlock.
  35. Wolverine just dies, y'know? Like how sometimes people seem perfectly healthy, and then they just drop dead. Life is short, man.
  36. Wolverine gets killed by Ultron, to boost the hype and marketing of the latter come 2015.
  37. Gets sucked into a Liefeld crosshatching-stress-line singularity.
  38. Death by Snu Snu
  39. Got Luke Cage angry
  40. Let Kenshiro poke him
  41. Drowned in a puddle.
  42. He gets shot, and a year later someone realizes: "Wait...THAT WAS NO ORDINARY GUN!"
  43. Sabretooth steals that Muramasa blade and cuts off Wolverine's arm and head. Revenge!
  44. Wolverine gets the adamantium ripped out by Magneto.... wait....
  45. Wolverine commits suicide by putting himself in front of a train, after accidentally gutting one or more of his friends.
  46. Wolverine is eaten by a bloated Hulk in their final battle. No, wait.... Ripped in two? No, not that either.
  47. Murder/suicide pact with Archie

Yes, that's right, Archie is dying too. If you're interested in seeing either Wolverine or Archie cease to be, you can preorder the books and we'll be sure to save a copy for you.

How do you think Wolverine (or Archie, for that matter) is going to die? Add your favorite guesses down in the comments.

Cap has a lot of catching up to do

Remember the scene in Captain America 2: Caplectric Boogaloo where Steve Rogers pulls out a notebook full of things from the last 70 years that he needs to catch up on?

Clearly the filmmakers were having a little fun with that, because the list is different in different parts of the world:
