Today’s the Day


Just a reminder that today is the day DC releases Flashpoint #5 and Justice League #1, the title that kicks off the DC relaunch. Many retailers held many parties to celebrate the releases (I heard from my friend Wayne Winsett of Time Warp Comics and Games in Boulder, Colorado, that his store's midnight event went quite well). If it's been a while since you've felt the rush and excitement of what it's like to be in a comic book store on a Wednesday for the new batch of comics that came out that week, then may I suggest you give it a try now? It might, just might, be a chance to rekindle that old comics magic you used to feel. Plus, there's the fun of getting caught up in a crowd that is all enthused about comics. And I'm not just talking specifically about the DC books. While you're there, check out the new Marvel, Dark Horse, Image, Boom!, and other comics that came out this week. Maybe look through their new graphic novels. Let's hope it's a good day to be a comic book shop owner.
