Tales of Mr. Rhee Volume 3 "...Those Who Fight Monsters" TP JUL161529 Hell invaded Earth for three days, and then it stopped - or so most people believe. Mr. Rhee knows there are still countless creatures lurking in the shadows, and he now must choose whether to trust his demonic best friend or the mysterious monster-hunting P.R.O.M.I.S.E. Group as he strives to save a world who sees him as insane rather than a savior. This collected edition features five stand-alone-yet-interconnected stories all written by Dirk Manning and each illustrated by a different art team. With a cover by Jason Pearson!
Barack The Barbarian GN JUL161522 The ultimate commemorative send-off for the Commander-in-Chief. An all new short story "No More Fs to Give" joins this satirical collection of breakout hit comics that were launched in tandem with the Obama presidency, to international acclaim: Barack the Barbarian: Quest for the Treasure of Stimuli and The Fall of Red Sarah. Told as a tale in a distant future ice age, the details behind our current POTUS (and world) have been slightly skewed.

TALES FROM THE CRYPT #2 FEATURES TWO STORIES FROM LEGENDARY COMICS ARTIST BERNIE WRIGHTSON “LOST CLASSICS” FROM LATE CREATOR APPEAR IN COLOR FOR THE FIRST TIMEfrom the official press release . . . . . . .NEW YORK - (March 21, 2017) - The entire comics industry was saddened to learn of the passing of legendary comics artist Bernie Wrightson this past weekend. Wrightson’s name was synonymous with the best the horror comics genre had to offer and he often spoke of the lasting influence EC comics titles such as the original TALES FROM THE CRYPT and VAULT OF HORROR had on his work.So, it seems only appropriate that two of Wrightson’s stories are included in Super Genius’ new revival of the TALES FROM THE CRYPT series.Issue #2 (in comic shops this Wednesday) features two “lost classics” from Wrightson, “Stake Out” and “Feed It!”, both appearing in color for the first time. The two stories had originally appeared in black and white in other publications but when CRYPT editor Jim Salicrup rem…
It was a cold night, but it didn’t stop the faithful from spending some time on the main drag in Oxford PA for the monthly First Friday celebration. This month, the theme was Super-Heroes and employees (and sometimes customers) at several establishments went along with the theme and dressed appropriately. (We had our Batman tee shirt underneath our sweater but spared the innocent, only flashing it to friends.) It was the perfect theme for the recently opened MAROON HORNET COMICS shop at 45 South Third Street in Oxford. Owner Randy Grace employed the mercenary-for-money Deadpool as a store greeter, and local writer Greg Cox was in attendance, signing his new book. The store is fully stocked now, and has an impressive assortment of comics, games, posters, and related toys and accessories. Randy and Lori Grace are very friendly and happy to be able to provide a comics outlet in Oxford for local pop culture fans.Greg Cox is a best-selling author, who’s earned a deserved rep…
