It's official! DC is rebooting... its Hanna-Barbera comics


SCOOBY APOCALYPSE – Featuring character designs by veteran artist Jim Lee and an origin story by Jim Lee and Keith Giffen (JUSTICE LEAGUE 3001), artist Howard Porter (SUPERMAN) will provide his own unique take on Freddie, Velma, Daphne, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo. “Those meddling kids” and their Mystery Machine are at the center of a well-meaning experiment gone wrong and they’ll need to bring all of their mystery solving skills to bear (along with plenty of Scooby Snacks), to find a cure for a world full of mutated creatures infected by a nanite virus that enhances their fears, terrors and baser instincts. This time, the horrors are real in this apocalyptic near-future badland!


FUTURE QUEST – Writer Jeff Parker (AQUAMAN, JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED, BATMAN ’66) and artist Evan “Doc” Shaner (JUSTICE LEAGUE DARKSEID WAR: GREEN LANTERN) join forces to bring fans new tales of adventure’s most iconic teenager, Jonny Quest, along with his sidekick Hadji. This series combines Team QUEST (Hadji, Race Bannon, Dr. Benton Quest and Jezebel Jade) with some of the most well-known action and adventure heroes ever created by Hanna-Barbera, including SPACE GHOST, THE HERCULOIDS, BIRDMAN, MIGHTOR and FRANKENSTEIN Jr., among others.


WACKY RACELAND – Take The Ant Hill Mob, Penelope Pitstop and Dick Dastardly, mix in a healthy dose of “Mad Max” and you get this dark and gritty take on Hanna-Barbera’s “Wacky Races,” courtesy of writer Ken Pontac (REBOOT, HAPPY TREE FRIENDS) and artist Leonardo Manco (HELLBLAZER), with vehicle designs by Mark Sexton (MAD MAX: FURY ROAD). A time of hope and innocence with Utopia at the finish line has given way to planetary Armageddon and a desert wasteland full of radioactive lakes, nanotech dust storms, and cannibalistic mutants. Against this backdrop, the Wacky Racers and their sentient vehicles continue their contest, but now the competition is for survival, and there can only be one winner when the checkered flag falls.


THE FLINTSTONES – Based on character designs by Amanda Conner (HARLEY QUINN, STARFIRE), writer Mark Russell (PREZ, GOD IS DISAPPOINTED IN YOU) provides his own unique perspective on everyone’s “modern stone age family.” Russell will use Bedrock’s most popular family to shine a light on humanity’s ancient customs and institutions in a funny origin story of human civilization. Fred is still the simple man, striving to be the king of his castle, Wilma is still the tolerant but not-indulging wife and Barney (with his wife Betty and infant son Bamm-Bamm) is still the original wingman, whose loyalty to Fred often outweighs his common sense.

If any of these tickle your fancy, let us know and we'll make sure to save you a copy when they come out in May.

HeroClix - Pre-Release Event, Sunday January 31 @2:30


We have pushed the HeroClix Pre-Release Event to start at 2:30PM this Sunday instead of the 2PM original start time.  We want to give the Pokemon players plenty of time to leave before Clix starts since parking may be tricky at the store.

Please as a reminder do not park in front of any of our neighbors stores.
We share parking with others at our location and want to play nice with everyone.

Also please don't park directly in front of our store if you can avoid it, we usually reserve the spots in front of our door for 15 minute parking and the Clix games will last several hours.

Thanks for helping us out during the snow melting process.

This HeroClix set looks like one of the best in a very long time so come out and check it out on Sunday.

Pokemon Pre-Release Sill Scheduled for Sunday, January 31.



The Pokemon Pre-Release is still scheduled for this coming Sunday, January 31.

Parking is going to be tricky so please follow these guidelines:

1> Carpool if possible.

2> Please do not park in front of one of neighbor's stores.  They need the parking space too.

3> Please try not to park directly in front of our store, this is generally used for short term parking (15 minute) and the Pokemon game will last for about 2 hours.


Note - Please give yourself plenty of time to arrive for the event.  We must start promptly because another event requiring space is scheduled to begin at 2pm.

Thanks for your understanding.
We look forward to seeing you all on Sunday.

There's a storm a-brewin'!

So, you've probably heard that we're in for some big snow this weekend, and you know what that means: you're going to be stuck inside.


So now is the time to stock up on fun things to do. Today is new comics day, so come in and grab a stack of things to read over the weekend. Maybe pick up some TPBs of stories you've been meaning to catch up on. Maybe get yourself some models and paint, or a board game the entire family can play. We may not have bread and milk, but Comic Store West has everything else you need to stave off cabin fever this weekend.

Suicide is Painless

Is anybody even going to recognize that M*A*S*H joke? Probably not, but who cares? DC has released a new Suicide Squad trailer!


This trailer has certainly done its job in getting the hype train started.

Hey, bonus! Take our poll:

Who will die in Suicide Squad?

Looks like the movie is based on the New 52 reboot of Suicide Squad, and sure enough, we have issues of that you can buy. Come in and ask us how!

Let There be Dragons!


These adorable little guys are "Drups" (Dragon Pups) and are an Australian release. On this side of the globe, the only place to get them is at Comic Store West!


There are six different styles, with different names and materials - look at that one that's made of corduroy! Each comes all curled up in its own resealable plastic egg. For just $14.99, the dragon-lover in your life can have a new plush, beanie-filled friend!

Gaming is important!

You know that we have a free Tabletop gaming night every Tuesday, right? It's true, we do - you can come in around 6pm, and find someone to play awesome games with. But, did you know you might be making history at the same time?


Okay, it's a little unlikely, but there really are some historically important board games. In fact, Listverse collected half a D20's worth in their 10 Most Important Board Games In History article. Odds are, you've even played a few of them - or at least, their modern descendants. Take a look at those, and then come in Tuesday nights to try out some more modern bemusements.

Why War of the Roses ?

The Wars of the Roses were a series of dynastic wars for the throne of England. They were fought between supporters of two rival branches of the royal House of Plantagenet, the Houses of Lancaster and York. They were fought in several sporadic episodes between 1455 and 1487, although there was related fighting before and after this period. The conflict resulted from social and financial troubles that followed the Hundred Years' War, combined with the mental infirmity and weak rule of Henry VI, which revived interest in the alternative claim to the throne of Richard, Duke of York.
The final victory went to a claimant of the Lancastrian party, Henry Tudor, who defeated the last Yorkist king, Richard III, at the Battle of Bosworth Field. After assuming the throne as Henry VII, he married Elizabeth of York, the eldest daughter and heiress of Edward IV, thereby uniting the two claims. The House of Tudor ruled England and Wales until 1603.

Why am I telling you this?

Well The Comic Store West (in York, PA) and our sister store The Comic Store (in Lancaster, PA) have enlisted the help of local comic creator Jeff McComsey (many know his work from his own creation Fubar or most recently his work on Z-Men from Double Take Comics, that just got optioned for a movie) to create our stores' an EXCLUSIVE ZOMBIE COMIC BOOK for the local comic conventions in 2016.

To make this a true War of the Roses how about a friendly competition to see which store can sell the most issues?  Stop by the Comic Store West booth or The Comic Store booth at Central PA Comic Con March 4, 5 and 6th for your first chance to get this awesome comic.  Your last chance to get these will be at Harrisburg Comic Con in June.

Face it, Tiger

Do you read Spider-Gwen? If you do, you know she's drummer for a punk band (fronted by MJ Watson) called The Mary Janes.


In honor of the character, real-life band Married With Sea Monsters has recorded several songs "as" The Mary Janes, including the one you can see them practicing in the image up above:


They've also done three others: "Paper Doll," "Murderface," and "Vulture." They're all four really catchy songs, and get some extra cool-points for bringing the Marvel Universe a little bit into ours.

Something sexy for just $1

Are you familiar with the work of Stjepan Sejic? The Croatian artist has done a lot of work for Top Cow comics, so you might recognize his style from Witchblade, The Darkness, etc. Anyway, he and his wife have their own comic series, Sunstone. Originally published one page at a time on DeviantArt, it was eventually collected in trade paperback form and sold by image.

Well now, thanks to the "Image Firsts" program, which reprints important issues at the low low price of one thin dollar, you can try out the story without having to buy the full TPB:


This is definitely a book for grown-ups ("mature themes, adult situations and brief nudity," as the HBO content warnings would say), but the art is beautiful, and certainly worth a look. And if you like it, we can order you the full book posthaste!

We have an entire section of these $1 books, which include things like Saga, Walking Dead and lots of other titles you'll recognize. Plus, the selection is constantly updating, so come in today and see what you can get for just a buck!
