Comics this week are so amazing! I am so excited to share these with you!! Without further ado!
The first comic this week is Do a Powerbomb #5. FYSO have made it clear: They think they’re better than every other wrestler in the Deathlyfe. But are they ready for an anything-goes DEATH MATCH? Sun and Steel bring the barbed wire to a final like no other!
Our second comic this week is Love Everything #3. After the bloody end of issue two, Joan finds herself free in the pristine suburbs of the 1950s. But again love pulls at her, demanding her attention, her life. She fights it, fights to escape, but still, it pulls, and Joan must find a new way to fight this terror.
Last comic this week is The Approach #1. In this turbulent new horror mini-series from writers Jeremy Haun & Jason A. Hurley and artist Jes s Hervas, a storm is coming that’s bringing more than bad weather.
When airport employees Mac and Abigail find themselves snowed in after a blizzard, they witness a terrible plane crash. After pulling a survivor from the wreckage, they realize a terrifying truth: this plane has been missing for 27 years!!! The nightmare has only just begun though, as the people trapped in the airport soon find themselves confronted by what this plane actually brought back…
For those with a fear of flying… it's not the sky that deserves dread, but what lies beyond it….
Welcome to the manga corner where we talk about all things manga! This week we have two mangas but they will blow your mind! Next week will have some exciting news as well for the world of manga.
The manga this week is Dandadan vol 1. Momo Ayase strikes up an unusual friendship with her school’s UFO fanatic, whom she nicknames “Okarun” because he has a name that is not to be said aloud. While Momo believes in spirits, she thinks aliens are nothing but nonsense. Her new friend, meanwhile, thinks the exact opposite. To settle matters, the two set out to prove each other wrong—Momo to a UFO hotspot and Okarun to a haunted tunnel! What unfolds next is a beautiful story of young love…and oddly horny aliens and spirits?
The second manga this week is Black Paradox. Four people intent on killing themselves meet through the suicide website Black Paradox: Maruso, a nurse who despairs about the future; Taburo, a man who is tortured by his doppelganger; Pii-tan, an engineer with his own robot clone; and Baracchi, a woman who agonizes about the birthmark on her face.
They wander together in search of the perfect death, fatefully opening a door that leads them to a rather bizarre destiny…
Did you know we also do COMIC GRADING?? Come and see Macayla on the first Friday of the month with your favorite, or just a great comic you want to get graded. We have had some fantastic entries and even better grades. All comic book grading is done by CBCS and EGS.
Chaz and Dina have partnered with Comic Books for Kids/ Comic Books for Troops (https://www.comicbooksforkids.org/) to donate comics to sick kids and our honorable troops.
