EC Book Club: Daredevil by Mark Waid!

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 featured book 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).

The selection for Tuesday, August 1st is…

DAREDEVIL BY MARK WAID VOLUME 1
MARVEL COMICS
(W) Mark Waid (A) Paolo Rivera, Marcos Martin (CA) Paolo Rivera
It’s a fresh start for the Man Without Fear, with the all-star creative team of writer Mark Waid and artists Paolo Rivera and Marcos Martin at the helm! Matt Murdock is back in New York, but not everyone is happy to see him. Hoping to resuscitate his law practice, he takes on a police-brutality case – but someone is trying to silence the victim. While Murdock struggles in court, Daredevil hits the streets as Klaw, master of sound, makes his deadly return! Then, the blind literally lead the blind as a visually impaired client targeted for assassination holds the key to a global conspiracy perpetrated by some familiar foes. Can Daredevil protect the young man long enough to bring down an international criminal organization, or will their deadly enforcer get to him first?

DC COMICS
(W) Scott Snyder, James TynionIV (A) Jim Lee & Various (CA) Jim Lee, Scott Williams
The Joker’s surprise attack threatens to lay waste to all of Batman’s carefully laid plans. Will the Dark Knight be able to regain the trust of his closest allies, Green Lantern and Duke, and prevent the forces of darkness from consuming the DC Universe?!

MAGE HERO DENIED #0
IMAGE COMICS
(W/A/CA) Matt Wagner
MATT WAGNER returns with the third and final volume of his epic fantasy trilogy-MAGE: THE HERO DENIED. This long-awaited conclusion follows the adventures of the reluctant everyman hero Kevin Matchstick, who, after encountering a shaggy and beguiling wizard, discovers he is the reincarnation of the legendary Pendragon and able to wield the power of the mystical weapon, Excalibur. The story picks up several years after the fateful climax of THE HERO DEFINED and finds Kevin beginning to once again doubt the virtue of his actions and the course of his destiny.
This introductory, half-sized issue #0 continues MAGE’s tradition of an “Interlude” short-adventure, bridging the gap between this series and the previous storyline. It also acts as a perfect jumping-on spot for new readers.

THIS IS IT, TRUE BELIEVERS!

Now that the Miles you know and love is with Peter in the Marvel Universe, you’re finally going to get that answer to who the OTHER Miles Morales is! And that’s just the tip of the iceberg as Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli bring you the next heart-stopping adventure for both Peter Parker and Miles Morales!

“Justin’s Jabber” – Back Issue Comics! 7/5/17

Dave told me a story awhile back that I’d like to share:

Apparently back when he was in high school, he and a few buddies bought an old school bus and used it as a mobile barbershop.
These guys, they drove around soliciting people on the streets; offering to bring them on the school bus and give them a haircut for a few bucks.

No business license, no experience as barbers, no nothing; just a bus and a dream.
Their fledgling enterprise did not prove to be a success.

None of this has anything to do with comics, just an awesome story I thought you might enjoy as much as I did … so enjoy…

 

Amazing Spider-Man #39, Identity of Green Goblin revealed, Fine Plus (6.5) condition, $150.

“Justin’s Jabber” – Back Issue Comics! 6/28/17

I believe that all collectors of neat stuff find themselves in the following conundrum from time to time.

As collectors we often find ourselves in search of particular items of the sought-after variety.

Said items often vary in price based on any number of factors and when we’re talking about comic books condition is a big factor in determining value.

When it comes to condition I’m a mid-grade man myself, particularly when it’s a pricey key issue that I’m after.

Hey folks, if money’s no object for you then by all means go for that Gem Mint copy of Hulk #181, I ain’t mad at ya’, but if you’re ballin’ on a budget like ol’ Uncle Justin then sometimes you’ve got to settle for a copy that’s seen a little love.

Here are a few of our books that might be a little rough around the edges but still have a lot of life left in ’em.

 

Amazing Spider-Man #298, first Todd McFarlane Spider-Man, Venom cameo appearance, Fine (6.0) condition, $20.

    The Joker stopped by with his on-again-off-in-the-head-again lady friend, Harley Quinn.!!! We also invited our friend and DC Comics' Harley Quinn colorist Paul Mounts to stop by for a special meet and greet with his fans!!!

    In addition, we gave away free Joker figures, and Ghost In The Shell movie posters,(out on DVD/BluRay now), and held a free raffle for a Harley and Joker Fan Pack, which included Batman: The Animated Series and Funko action figures, as well as a DC Legion of Collectors box from Funko with a Batman villains theme!!!

    Joker and Harley can be pretty intimidating in person, and we're happy to say most of our young guests took to them pretty quickly, so a fun time was had by everyone!!!

    We had a great time as well, and we thank all of you who made our day so special!!!

    Join us during our Joker & Harley Quinn Day at EC!, as our friends from All Things Nerdy host EC Game Day, with our spotlight on Amun Re, from Tasty Minstrel Games!!!

    If you're new to the game, worry not!!! Our ATN friends will help you learn in a friendly, patient and welcoming atmosphere, and you're sure to have lots of fun!!!

    From Tasty Minstrel:
    Everyone knows of the pyramids on the Nile - eternal monuments of a powerful and beautiful culture, that can still take our breath away. The pharaohs choose their sites, build their pyramids, and thank Amun Re and the other Gods for their bounty. Each player wants, as pharaoh, to build the most pyramids. To accomplish this, he must first acquire a province, where he can trade and farm. With his profits, he can buy new provinces and building stones to erect pyramids. For all his actions, the player must make clever use of his power cards, and always offer appropriate sacrifices to Amun Re. Players must always keep their eyes on the goal of the building of the eternal pyramids or risk falling behind in points.

    Join us as our friends from All Things Nerdy host EC Game Night!!! This week we're getting together to play Steam Park from IELLO!!!

    If you're new to Steam Park, you can attend our Learn & Play session in a friendly, patient, welcoming environment, from 6-7pm, and then stay for Open Play of Steam Park, or any of our many demos from 7-9pm!!!

    From iello:
    As owners of a fantastic steam park, you're to build gigantic, coal-powered rides to attract as many visitors as you can - but building attractions won't be enough. You'll also need to manage your employees, invest in advertising in order to attract and please the different kinds of guests visiting your park, and, above all, keep the dirt that your park produces under strict control! Steam Park is an easy-to-learn game with two difficulty levels: one for the less experienced gamers and a more strategic one for those who want a more exciting challenge. In this management game, you'll have to build your own amusement park and make it the largest and most profitable in the region. By constructing the three-dimensional, wonderful rides designed by Marie Cardouat, you will see your park grow right before your eyes. Choose your strategy! Build Stands to attract more Visitors, or Toilets to keep the Dirt under control. Whatever decision you take, take it quickly: The less time you spend planning, the more time you'll have to maintain your park. Thanks to a clever, original action-choosing mechanism, winning in Steam Park is as much a matter of being the best as of being the fastest!
