Upcoming News for the Week of 5/26/10


After reading Avengers #1 all of us here at CBJ are hungry for more. We all thought it was a great start to the Heroic Age and we can't wait for all the other new books getting ready to kick off. Luckily we won't have to wait very long because Secret Avengers is the next new Avengers book to come out this month. The team has been revealed and it's interesting to say the least. Hopefully Marvel can continue the great trend they started.

This week one of the Marvel U's most popular characters makes a return in a book bearing his name - Thanos Imperative! This is another one of those books that's been a long time coming and it also features fan favorite Silver Surfer. Add this all up with the newest Green Lantern and another installment of the Return of Bruce Wayne and we're looking to have another fantastic week of comics. Very exciting stuff indeed!

To all of you who voted in Dark Horse's Facebook poll - THANKS! For those who don't know, Dark Horse asked New Yorkers what their favorite comic shop in NYC was and we asked you all to kindly vote for us and many of you did, so thanks again! Our last tally had us up by a good margin. We're not sure if this thing is still going or what the deal is but I won't deter you from voting if you already haven't, the link can be found right here! Keep it going for good ol' CBJ and representing the lost borough!
