He-Man and the Masters of the Universe

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe


He-Man and the Masters of the Universe #1

While I’m not a fan of He-Man getting top billing over any of the other Masters of the Universe, I’m SO JAZZED FOR THIS COMIC, YOU GUYS!!! This is the perfect type of celebration for the 30th(ish) anniversary of the MOTU franchise.

I’m heartbroken I don’t get to letter it, though.

🙁

That’s all anyone really needs this month, honestly… but if you really, really need some more suggestions this month…

Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Promise Part 3

Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Promise Part 3


Avatar: The Last Airbender — The Promise Part 3 TPB

Considering how quickly the first volume of this became unavailable — and for how long – I’d strongly recommend preordering this book as soon as humanly possible.

Also, FYI, Legend of Korra is AWESOME.

Alabaster: Wolves #4

Rachelle Rosenberg’s colors are so gorgeous with Steve Lieber’s black and white work. I could look at their collaborations for hours and hours on end!

Executive Assistant: Assassins

Executive Assistant: Assassins


Executive Assistant: Assassins #1 Cover B by Eduardo Francisco

Did you know: Jordan Gunderson — who’s drawn comics for such publishers as Boom!, Zenescope, and now Aspen — is a Westfield Comics regular? Now you know, and knowing is half the battle! But the real question is: what’s the other half?

The other half is this: whether you buy the Joe Benitez cover or the Francisco cover, you should buy this comic!!! (Me, I’ll probably buy both.)

Prophecy

Prophecy


Prophecy #2

It’s written by one of my favorite living comic book writers, and it’s about the end of the world (something he knows a thing or 16 issues about).

Witchblade: Demon Reborn

Witchblade: Demon Reborn


Witchblade: Demon Reborn #1

Hot covers? Check. Talented writers? Check. Has a bonus reprint of a comic I may or may not have read years ago but am much more sure I never bought? This book is working out in my favor pretty quickly.

Scott Pilgrim Color Hardcover Volume 1: Precious Little Life

It’s probably been 8 years since I last read this story, and I’m really looking forward to seeing it in new, full color glory!!!

Finding Gossamyr

Finding Gossamyr


Finding Gossamyr #1

I’ve been looking forward to this gorgeously illustrated comic to continue ever since I got to see a preview of it months ago! If you’re going to a Free Comic Book Day celebration close to you — which you hopefully are — you can get started right away!

Bloodshot

Bloodshot


Bloodshot #1

I haven’t had a chance to read the new X-O Manowar #1 that just shipped this week, but I have a pretty good feeling about this relaunch (or I’m really just hoping to see the relaunch of one of the best comics ever: Shadowman!!!).

DC Super-Pets: Fantastic Flexy Frog

DC Super-Pets: Fantastic Flexy Frog


DC Super-Pets!!!

In case you didn’t get enough of the Super-Pets in this month’s issue of Superman Family Adventures, thankfully we’re getting six more young reader books featuring those adorable critters!!! I think my favorites so far are looking like The Fantastic Flexy Frog  and Swamp Thing vs. the Zombie Pets!

Knight Rider Kit

Knight Rider Kit


Knight Rider Kit

They really missed a great joke by not calling this the Knight Rider Kit(t), but I’m just putting this here for my brother from another mother Jimmy P.S. Hayes, so I’ll let it slide. While we’re talking Kitt, don’t forget to check out the Kitt 1:15 scale electronic vehicle.

Josh Crawley may or may not be the keyboardist for Everclear. He strongly suggests you not bet that he is.
