Modern Masters 2015



We are expecting a limited amount of Magic Modern Masters 2015 to arrive sometime tomorrow afternoon.
As you know these are extremely rare and we doubt that our supply will last the weekend.

There is a Modern Masters 2015 draft next Thursday at the store.
Draft starts at 6pm sharp and is $35.
Everyone gets 3 packs to draft with and 2 boosters of regular boosters per player to the prize pool.

IMPORTANT:
This is a draft.
Just so you understand the rules of a draft, the cards that are your's to keep are NOT the cards from the boosters you are handed to start the draft. The cards that are your's to keep are the cards that you end up with after the draft.

NO EXCEPTIONS !!

p.s.
Still some 2 or 3 spots left in the draft event next Thursday.

UPDATE
I have a few more booster boxes coming in next week so if we sell out over the weekend check back next Wednesday.

Supergirl first look

Did you buy today's issue of Convergence: Supergirl? You should. It's funny. And conveniently, CBS has posted a (semi-spoilery) trailer for their upcoming Supergirl TV show, and it's looking pretty good:


SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), Superman's (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents' help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex (Chyler Leigh), and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later at 24, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant (Golden Globe Award winner Calista Flockhart), who just hired the Daily Planet's former photographer, James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), as her new art director. However, Kara's days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime. Greg Berlanti ("The Flash," "Arrow"), Ali Adler, Sarah Schecter and Andrew Kreisberg are executive producers for Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The pilot was directed by Glen Winter ("Arrow").

People who have seen the pilot episode are saying it's outstanding, and this trailer (while giving almost everything away) seems to back that up.

WarMachine and Hordes - Path of Devastation - Season 2



Monday, May 18th marks the beginning of second season of the Path of Devastation League at Comic Store West.

Path of Devastation: Broken Roads is a casual play league for fans of the Iron Kingdoms setting.

For returning players, who participated in our Riven Bonds league back in March, this season features a different Hero model for each faction, new Scenarios, and an original Iron Kingdoms Roleplaying Game story.

For players new to the Path of Devastation League, the main feature of the league is your Hero, an existing solo who has been temporarily upgraded to a Character model. As you play games and paint models you will accrue XP that can be applied to your character to purchase new powers and abilities that will remain in effect for the remainder of the league. Additionally, unlike in previous leagues, you can get XP for games of High Command, the Iron Kingdoms Deck Building Game, as well as XP for playing through (or running!) this season's Roleplaying Game scenario.

Official League nights will happen from 5p-10p, Friday nights at Comic Store West but you can play any time the store is open. It is a good idea to call first to make sure there is a free table since some nights can get very busy in the gaming area.

Registration is $5 and sign-ups start immediately.

Looking for more info? Either e-mail me at undeaddan@mac.com or check out the event page on Facebook (https://goo.gl/ZEHlyD)

Thanks, and I hope to see you and your army at Comic Store West.

Thor's secret identity leaked (SPOILERS!)

Just a few days ahead of this week's Thor #8, speculation runs rampant about who the new Thor is when she takes off her helmet. Well, if you can't stand the excitement any more, you're in luck!


A small fan site that nobody has ever heard of has managed to uncover the last page of the issue.

Now, don't worry, we're not going to post the reveal here - just throwing it out there would be rude, and we do like to maintain at least a little bit of secrecy, after all.

Every time Marvel tries to have a big surprise like this, they usually end up spoiling it somehow, don't they? Here are some ways they've given away the contents of their important stories in the past:

  • Facebook news feeds.
  • On The View.
  • Social media. All of it.
  • The pages of USA Today.

Everybody is going to be talking about this reveal soon enough. Maybe even before Wednesday morning. So you can wait for that to happen, or you can choose to spoil the reveal for yourself right now.

Really sure you want to know who the new Thor is? Really, really sure? Then click here to find out, but don't say we didn't warn you. But be ready, it's a heck of a hook for the next issue, and really raises more questions than it answers. Now is a good time to subscribe!
