“The men at the comics stand were not like anyone else in the neighborhood. They wore silk suits in the morning and would drape the fenders of their cars with handkerchiefs before leaning back for a talk. He had watched them double park their comics and never get tickets, even when they parked smack in front of a fire hydrant. In the winter he had seen the city’s sanitation trucks plow the snow from the comics stand’s parking lot before getting around to cleaning the school yard and hospital grounds. In the summer he could hear the noisy all-night comics games and he know that no one – not even Mr. Mancuso, who lived down the block and groused about everything – would dare to complain. And the men at the comics stand were rich. They flashed wads of twenty-dollar bills as round as softballs and they sported diamond pinky rings the size of walnuts. The sight of all that wealth and power and comics was intoxicating”

Baltimore: Dr. Leskovar’s Remedy

By Mike Mignola, John Arcudi, Ben Stenbeck, & Dave Stewart

The crusty vampire hunter returns, and this series, enjoyable every time, is not so much about the emotional foibles of the complex inner lives of vampires as it is about a cold-hearted amputee who really likes to kill a lot of them. I implore you once again to jump on here. It will feel just fine.

Reed Gunther #10

By Shane Houghton and Chris Hougton

Did you SEE the video we posted yesterday? If that doesn’t make you go buy every issue of Reed Gunther, starting with issue #10, I don’t know what will. Hands down this has been one of the best all ages and best all around comics on the stands. And most importantly, it’s fun.


Conor says try…

Nightwing #10

By Kyle Higgins, Eddy Barrows, Paulo Siqueira, & Eber Ferreira

Nightwing, in addition to starring the best Robin, has also been the best Batbook not called Batman. And now that “Night of the Owls” is over for the extended Batfamily it’s time to move on to new stories (AKA, a good jumping on point!) and Nightwing is sticking around Gotham City for a while. If we cross our fingers, click our heels three times, and wish upon a star maybe Damian will fall through an open manhole and Dick will don the red tunic and yellow cape again. I mean, he’s already in Gotham, so…


  1. Super glad someone else enjoys Nightwing as much as i do.

  2. I was going to pick up Nightwing at the start of the new 52 but it didnt make my pull list but i want to try anther bat book.Is it worth taking a chance with issue 10?.

  3. While Nightwing has been good I’d hardly call it the best book not called Batman. Batman & Robin as well as Batman Inc are both better than Nightwing.

  4. that cover is awesome. makes me wanna read Nightwing.

  5. good call, josh! baltimore is at the top of my stack this week. mignola and company seldom fail to produce badass comics and they’re vampires are scary, not sexy. it’s a good thing.

  6. Damian is the best!

  7. Finally I can jump on Nightwing!

  8. Yeah thanks for that.Im going to try nightwing and maybe Batman and Robin.By the way guys what did you think of Planetoid 1.I really liked the art but the story didnt realy jump out at me as much.

  9. Can’t wait for this issue of Baltimore! And have you seen the alternate Mignola cover? Bad. Ass.
