DEATH OF WOLVERINE #1 Of (4)

MARVEL COMICS
(W) Charles Soule (A) Steve McNiven
IT'S THE BEGINNING OF THE END - 3 MONTHS TO DIE ENDS HERE!
The beginning of the end is now here ... THE DEATH OF WOLVERINE! THREE MONTHS TO DIE, the loss of Wolverine's healing factor--all led to this, the single most important X-Men event of the decade. Logan has spent over a century being the best there is at what he does...but even the best fade away eventually. Over the years, Logan has been a warrior, a hero, a renegade, a samurai, a teacher-and so much more. But now, the greatest X-Men hero will play a role he's never played before in this special weekly event brought to you by industry superstars Charles Soule and Steve McNiven.

Closed Monday/New Comics on Wednesday
COMICBOOKMAN SEZ: A few years back the monopoly all of us comic book stores get our comics from - Diamond Comic Distributors - finally eliminated New Comic THURSDAYS. For years, whenever there was a national holiday like Labor Day or Memorial Day all comic shipments for every store would be delayed by 24 hours because of the holiday. Then in 2011 Diamond phased out the shipping delay and POOF, no more New Comic Thursdays. New comics, every Wednesday, 52 times a year is now the industry standard from coast to coast. So when we say we're closing on Labor Day Monday... don't worry. At 7:00am on Wednesday 090314 the doors will open and everything listed below will be on the racks and for sale!

CLOSED MONDAY

NEW COMICS WEDNESDAY

THIS WEEK'S STANDINGS: Fewer new titles this week (152) compared to last week (177), but what a crop this week. DC remains on top with 32 titles, almost a third of which come from the return of the lenticular/motion covers as the New 52 Future's End month long event kicks off. Marvel ships 29 titles this week, but is number one in the cost department. Dynamite re-emerges in the Top 5 with 3rd Place and 17 titles. Nothing seems capable of moving IDW out of it's 4th PLACE funk with 12 titles and Image tumbles to 5th Place with a barely registering 10 titles. INDY COMICS remain at a collective 50+ units again this week with 52 titles - down just a bit from last weeks 55 titles. Avatar returns to the rack with four titles which translates into 18 slots on the shipping schedule this week. While each company is ranked in the TOP 5 based on the weeks total output of regular covers, parallel covers (Subscription/Standard) and 2nd prints, we aren't going to make the #3 shipper for the week a company like Avatar that only ships out 4 unique titles but lards up the New Comic Rack with 14 additional variants. We always try to weigh this list in favor of original output and not just multiple variants per title.

THIS WEEK'S HIGHLIGHTS:  As mentioned above it's Lenticular/motion cover month again at DC. In September of 2013 DC told the origins of the New 52 villains in their #23.1 (and .2, and .3, etc) titles which shipped out with both Standard and the much sought after Lenticular/motion covers. This year they are doing it again but this time around all the titles are tied into the FUTURE'S END weekly series. 41 first issues are all kicking the DCU five years down the road but for this month only. Meanwhile, over at Marvel, it's time to get serious about actually killing Logan off as the DEATH OF WOLVERINE #1, of the four issue weekly series, ships. It's also our Book of the Week which means it'll be 40% Off all week long. Marvel's also bringing back Stephen Kings Dark Tower saga with the five issue DARK TOWER DRAWING OF THREE PRISONER series which will be 40% Off all day Wednesday. Also of note from Marvel is the end of Original Sin with #8 and the teaming up of the two kings of the "B List" heroes in HAWKEYE VS DEADPOOL #0. Over at Dynamite the much anticipated ALICE COOPER #1 arrives as, does their latest "Creator's Unleashed" title EX-CON #1 (both 40% Off Wednesday). Around the INDY pit we have CLOAKS #1 from Boom, DEATH DEFYING DR MIRAGE #1 from Valiant, GRENDEL VS SHADOW #1 & CONCRETE PARK #1 both from Dark Horse andthe redundantly titled NUMBER ONE #1 from Aazurn. This last title is a one shot that tells of the trials and tribulations of running a Comic Book Store and the history of comic retailing. As the makers of the book put it: "Being a Comic shop owner isn't a job, it's a calling". Wow, that sounds so-o-o-o-o HEROIC! Finally, as mentioned above, Avatar ships 4 titles with 18 total covers this week and the Zenescope cheesecake factory ships out 2 titles with a combined 7 covers which wins them both this weeks "lack of originality" award for shipping a total of 6 titles with a combined total of 25 SKU's!
