Ssalefish GSO First Look #101 for 3.13.19

Normally we would go over to our neighbors at the AMC Classic 18 on Koger Boulevard for the release of a new Marvel movie and pass out free coinciding comics, but for the first time in the two years we’ve been open, they’re not getting the new Marvel movie! That plus the distinguished competition having the only other theater on this side of town covered means that here at the shop (while supplies last) we’ll be giving away a reprint of the first issue of Kelly Sue DeConnick’s character-defining run and a preview book with glimpses at the current ongoing series, the Life of Captain Marvel origin story, and Ms. Marvel’s adventures in Marvel Rising.

Ssalefish GSO First Look #98 for 2.20.19

Desert Island Top 5 Comics in no particular order: All-Star Superman, New Frontier, Casanova, Scott Pilgrim, and The Umbrella Academy. Tonight, as I did in 2008 before the Justice League animated adaptation of Darwyn Cooke’s beloved opus of DC and 2010 before Edgar Wright’s cult-smash debut (I’ve never watched the ASS DC feature and I’ll probably never have to worry about this with Cass), I’ll read the first two collections one last time with whatever my brain can come up with for their voices before the actors replace them forever.
