A Comic Show – The Best Week In Comics Of The Year So Far

Posted by April 5, 2011 Comment

So this is a big week for the boys of A Comic Shop in Florida.

A lot of Fear Itself and Fear Itself Home Front, and its similarity to Blackest Night, the new Herc, Uncanny X-Men Point One that’s all Magneto trying to get better publicity, Spider-Man Annual without Chew branding, Brightest Day makes Aaron very happy in terms of his predictions, and hey Aaron I’d be happy with your suggestion, Nonplayer off the charts, one per person, The Boys volume 8, the new Fables book is nood for your budget, and the best week in comics all year.

Weekly TOP PICKS: 4.6.2011


FEAR ITSELF #1

MATT FRACTION! The real All-Father is back, Red Skull’s daughter gets hammered, Odin spanks Thor in public. Plus the “worthy” look cool, but will probably be on the Fear God’s side…oh, and our heroes are doomed.
NOTE: The book Rich Johnson says is the next Civil War!

Marvel Editor, Lauren Sankovitch (Fear Itself) will be at “A Comic Shop” on April 16th
