Chip Zdarsky turns down the Harvey Awards for what?

When we showed you the Harvey Award winners the other day, you may have seen Chip Zdarsky's name on the list. But while he may have won, that doesn't mean he's getting the award; according to CBR, Zdarsky is refusing his Harvey. Why? Because it only credits him, not writer Matt Fraction. He raised these concerns before the vote, but was ignored. Guess they didn't think he'd actually go through with it.

Just pulled at the Saturday Pre-Release.
Still spots for Sunday.


New Art Released for Season Two of "Agent Carter"


In case any of you don't know--- Agent Peggy Carter is moving to Hollywood and this is the first promotional art for the second season, which airs in 2016.

"Marvel's Agent Carter returns for a second season of adventure and intrigue, starring Hayley Atwell in the titular role of the unstoppable secret agent for the SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve). Dedicated to the fight against new atomic age threats in the wake of World War II, Peggy must now journey from New York City to Los Angeles for her most dangerous assignment yet. But even as she discovers new friends, a new home — and perhaps even a new love — she’s about to find out that the bright lights of the post-war Hollywood mask a more sinister threat to everyone she is sworn to protect." --Official Synopsis

While a date has not been announced for the season, it is known that, like the first, it will take place in a gap in Agents of SHIELD's 2015-2016 season.

Magic Pre-Releases start at 2PM Saturday and Sunday

My Daughter is on ComicsVerse



I don't usually do this but I wanted to share something with everyone.

My daughter Kara has just started an internship with ComicsVerse (http://comicsverse.com/). She will be doing book reviews, as well as some additional writing assignments for their website.  I'm anxious to see what she has to say.

I'll be linking in her reviews into our site so that you can get her take on comics, super heroes, etc.

I'm a very proud and excited father.

Available today: the Arkham Knight


This figure has been delayed for a while, but it's finally available!

Star Wars Shattered Empire



For those who may have missed it, the latest Star Wars series started this week - Star Wars Shattered Empire. Ok, I admit I'm a huge Star Wars nerd and love just about everything Star Wars but, seriously this comic is AWESOME !!

Story starts right before the end of Return of the Jedi and is non-stop action. New characters are introduced who seem interesting and the artwork is AMAZING.

I can not recommend this series enough.
