“Justin’s Jabber” – Back Issue Comics! 4/28/17

We’ve got Spider-Man! We’ve got Batman!

Disclaimer / Spoiler Alert: Neither Batman nor Spider-Man is actually a half-man half-animal; just a man in a costume vaguely reminiscent of the animal that is his namesake, and a man with the proportionate strength and natural climbing abilities of the animal that is his namesake, respectively.

Be that as it may, the comics they appear in are pretty darn cool. You should buy some. In fact you should buy these particular ones. To be even more specific you should buy these particular ones from us. Honestly, as long as you buy any comics from us that’s cool; they don’t have to be these particular ones.

 

Amazing Spider-Man #316, Very Fine (8.0) condition, $30.

 

Amazing Spider-Man #682, Gabriele Dell’otto variant cover, Very Fine/Near Mint (9.0) condition, $30.

Featured Comics:


BEN REILLY SCARLET SPIDER #1
MARVEL COMICS
(W) Peter David (A/CA) Mark Bagley
One of the most controversial characters in comics has returned – and the controversy has only BEGUN! In the aftermath of THE CLONE CONSPIRACY, Ben has a new take on life…and he’s not the same Scarlet Spider he was before. Come witness what will be the most talked about comic of the year!
Rated T+

 


BRITANNIA WE WHO #1 (OF 4)
VALIANT ENTERTAINMENT LLC
(W) Peter Milligan (A) Juan Jose Ryp (CA) Cary Nord
Valiant’s critically acclaimed, 10-time sold-out magnum opus returns with a brand-new journey into myth and mystery, from comics master Peter Milligan and incendiary artist Juan José Ryp!
Fifty thousand Romans stand on their feet, watching from the rafters of the coliseum with captured breath as Achillia, a Gladiator unlike any that Rome has seen before, faces incredible odds – one
lone warrior against five of Rome’s greatest. Such is the tradition, when a female gladiator enters the fray. When the carnage is complete, the coliseum roars its approval as Achillia stands victorious. Now only one match away from winning her freedom, she has begun to gain renown. The women of Rome, suppressed by their husbands and fathers, have noticed. The men of Rome, husbands and fathers to a growing horde of women entertaining ideas of independence, have noticed as well.
On the other side of Rome, a strange mystery swirls through the Palatine Hill. In the dead of night, down winding alleys, Rome’s elite swear that they see visions of a blood-soaked Apollo walking the city…visions that are driving them mad. Even more are becoming sick with weird fever god-dreams. Panic ensues in the city. The Chief Vestal, Rubria, is arrested by Emperor Nero and threatened with crucifixion unless the deadly curse that’s fallen on Rome is lifted. She asks Antonius Axia, hero of Britannia and Rome’s only detective, for help. She offers only one clue…the gladiator Achillia

New Games! 4/24/17

ZELDA PUZZLES

Love Puzzles? Love Zelda? We have just the thing(s) for you! We have restocked our Zelda puzzles to the max- some old and some brand new. There are 550 and 1000 piece puzzles, ranging from maps to themes based off of classic or/and beloved games (including Breath of the Wild!), and even a myth focused puzzle. Stop by and see our new selection, and see which one you would like to pick up and put together today!

 

 

GINGERDEAD HOUSE

Set in the world of Grimm’s Fairy Tales, you will battle hordes of witches, ogres, trolls, and a slew of other assorted monsters that want nothing more than the destruction of your delicious Gingerbread House! Monsters may not be the scariest foes you face, though, as you will also be playing against other people who have the same goal as you: survival!

Be assured that your “friends” will do whatever they can to protect themselves not only from the horde of monsters, but from any and all of the tricks that you may use throughout the game. At the end of the game, only one player’s house will be left standing — will it be yours?!

Summary of play: Every turn has several steps including Action, Player, movement/combat, cleanup.

In the action phase, an action card is flipped and there is a number indicating how many monsters enter the current player’s field. Each monster has a lane indicator that tells the player which lane the monster will enter. The field itself is 5 rows by 4 lanes. If ever 2 monsters enter the same lane, the second one pushes the first one farther toward the player.

In the player phase, the active player uses defenses and tricks to protect themselves or damage other player’s fields. The active player always starts their player phase with 5 cards in their hand.

In the movement phase, each monster moves down the field one tile. If they run into a defense, combat happens and either the monster or defense with the higher power wins combat.

In the cleanup phase, players finish any effects that need to resolve, remove any defenses or monsters that have been destroyed in combat, and refill their hand up to 5 cards total.

The player who is the last person standing is the winner!

EC Book Club: Rat Queens – Sass & Sorcery is Tuesday, May 2nd!

EC BOOK CLUB: RAT QUEENS – SASS & SORCERY
Tuesday, May 2nd from 7pm to 8pm

The Emerald City Book Club meets the FIRST TUESDAY of the month from 7-8pm to chat about the featured book. We usually begin each meeting with a “Comics 101” slideshow giving some historical, artistic, or social background on the book, and then we dive right into discussion!

The book selection for next meeting will be announced at the end of the current meeting, and that book is 20% OFF for the month leading up to its ECBC meeting!  (The discount will be calculated at the register, and does not combine with any other discounts or programs).

This month’s featured book is…

RAT QUEENS – SASS & SORCERY
IMAGE COMICS
(W) Kurtis J. Wiebe (A) Roc Upchurch (CA) Fiona Staples
Who are the Rat Queens? A pack of booze-guzzling, death-dealing battle maidens-for-hire, and they’re in the business of killing all god’s creatures for profit. It’s also a darkly comedic sass-and-sorcery series starring Hannah the Rockabilly Elven Mage, Violet the Hipster Dwarven Fighter, Dee the Atheist Human Cleric, and Betty the Hippy Smidgen Thief. This modern spin on an old school genre is a violent monster-killing epic that is like Buffy meets Tank Girl in a Lord of the Rings world on crack! Collecting the first 5 issues of the sold out hit series!

    MAY THE FARCE BE WITH YOU!!!

    The demented geniuses at Bad Lip Reading have done it again!!! This time, they've light-sabered Star Wars The Force Awakens, and it's nothing short of hilarious!!!

    Chewbacca steals the show, once again, and Han Solo is voiced by none other than...Mark Hammill!!!

    Once you're done giggling, you can stop by and see your friends at Emerald City Comics, where we have an entire Star Wars section... that is nothing to laugh at!!! It's filled with treasures you won't find anywhere else in one place!!!

    Enjoy!!!
