Where's Sven...?
COMICBOOKMAN SEZ: If you look in the store's display window you'll notice something's missing-WHERE'S SVENGOOLIE'S COFFIN?!?!? It's back home with it's owner, builder and all around good guy Brian Bernardoni. As fans of the window and fans of Sven know, our "Svengoolie Tribute Window" is made up of 85-90% of Brian's Sven memorabilia, the centerpiece being his massive reproduction of Svengoolie's original coffin. The deal is Brian lets us display all his wonderful memorabilia for about 48 weeks out of the year. For the balance of that time he needs the stuff back for his celebration of the Halloween Holiday. So the window is currently "on the road" but will be returning sometime after All Saints Day. And on a related note: a great big congratulations to Rich Koz for being recognized by the Museum of Broadcast Communications for his decades of outstanding work in local television. I hear the museum has it's own Svengoolie tribute display made up of Rich's original props. I wonder if they know about ours?

SVENGOOLIE TRIBUTE WINDOW

    

THIS WEEK'S STANDINGS: Considerably fewer titles this week (30% fewer!) and an unexpected Top Five define your week in comics. Everyone takes a breather as the industry ships 62 fewer books this week than last, translating into over $230.00 less comic product on the racks. Leading the pack in 1st Place is the historic industry shipping king Marvel Comics with twenty-seven titles. Coming in 2nd Place (both this week and historically) is DC Comics with twenty one titles. Dynamite moves up to 3rd Place this week with fifteen titles. Boom re-emerges into the Top Five taking 4th Place with twelve titles. Images drops from last week's second to 5th Place this week with eleven titles. The biggest change comes in the Indies as last week's record high of 77 titles is met with an almost record low of 46 titles, a 40% drop off in output. For the fist time in quite a while the fifty title Indy shipping floor has been broken as well. For the record 6th and 7th Place are respectively held by Dark Horse and IDW this week who each turn in total of less than eight titles each. Lighter weeks like this are excellent opportunities to try a new title or pick up a series or book you may have skipped over the last few weeks.

THIS WEEK'S HIGHLIGHTS:  Two endings and two beginnings lead us off this week as we start with the leader of the pack in terms of shipping: the House of Ideas. It finally happens this week as Logan will not only be merely dead, but really most sincerely dead as DEATH OF WOLVERINE #4 (OF 4) finally ships with two 50:50 parallel variant covers. Someone call Hugh Jackman and tell him not to quit those musicals. Also ending is the altered reality (see what I did there) Spidey mini-series/magical mystery tour that is EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE #5 (OF 5). Starting this week at Marvel is an unexpected annual and a gimmick to make every hero's head shake in disbelief. ORIGINAL SIN ANNUAL #1 reveals some final, untouched on "sins" from the summer long event series and DEADPOOLS ART OF WAR #1 (OF 4) has the Merc with a Mouth take a shot at Sun Tzu's Art of War - really, it does. Over at DC the Phantom Stranger and Pandora have been homeless on the racks for a few weeks now but by buddying up with the Question the three can have become the TRINITY OF SIN, the first issue of which is our Book of the Week and 40% Off all week long. Three new tales of the strange and unsettling can be found in the extra sized Dynamite special: TWILIGHT ZONE LOST TALES ONE SHOT. Valiant makes your wallet happy this week by shipping four Dollar Comics and they will make fans of the original Quantum and Woody even happier with Q2 RETURN OF QUANTUM & WOODY #1 (OF 5). Legendary creators Christopher Priest and M.D. Bright return to tell the tale of the original team meeting up with their current incarnations. Ever wonder why we keep the adaptations separate from the rest of the comics? Because there are so many of them! Boom this week brings Fox-TV's Ichabod Crane adventure series to the racks with SLEEPY HOLLOW #1 (OF 4) and in the CN animated series comic adaptation of UNCLE GRANDPA #1 contains a Mad magazine pastiche of short strips, games, and more goofy things. Why isn't DC doing this adaptation? Speaking of kids books - the videogame and toy sensation, Skylanders makes its comic book debut this week in SKYLANDERS #1 (OF 5) from IDW with the usual 50:50 parallel variant covers. The Brit comic company Titan has two adaptations of their own debuting this week: EVIL WITHIN #1 (OF 4) is an all-new prequel to the Bethesda Softworks videogame and DOCTOR WHO 12TH #1 which gives the current Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and his school teacher companion Clara even more ongoing adventures in time and space. Someone get John Hurt and Christopher Eccleston into the batter's box and tell them to start warming up!
