EDWARD SCISSORHANDS #1 (Of 5)

IDW PUBLISHING
(W) Kate Leth (A) Drew Rausch (CA) Gabriel Rodriguez
An all-new adventure revisiting Edward Scissorhands five decades after the end of the fan-favorite movie!
In castle just outside a sleepy suburban town, a brilliant inventor created Edward Scissorhands...but left him tragically unfinished. Two generations of exile have left Edward digging through abandoned experiments, but once he wakes up a creature left buried, he discovers he isn't the only one missing a vital piece. As Edward tries to fix a grave mistake, he comes face to face with a teenage girl who was sure he was only myth... despite the stories her grandmother told her, about the man she could never touch.

It's Halloween Comicfest Time...
COMICBOOKMAN SEZ: Halloween Comicfest is coming That's right, Halloween Comicfest is the comic industry's attempt at creating a "Free Comicbook Day" (FCBD) event in October. For years, publishers like Archie and DC have created "mini comics" for retailers to purchase an give away as a non-food alternative to Halloween candy for "Trick or Treaters". The mini-comics promote the industry and remind parents, "yes, they still make comics for kids". Since last year they have added a selection of full sized free comics to the mini-comics and together it all adds up to about half of the usual Spring FCBD slate of books. This years Halloween Comicfest free books will be available on Saturday 102514 starting at 9:00am and like FCBD you are welcome to come in and grab one copy each of as many of the 20 titles as you wish. First come/first served, they will last as long as they last. In addition to the Free Comics, on Saturday we will also be having our day long GREAT PUMPKIN SALE. Stop by and get: 20% Off storewide "Founder's Day" savings, a Rafflemania drawing in which we'll raffle off three prizes of $25.00 worth of "Back Issue Bucks", and a special Clearance Books Sale which you'll just have to stop by to find out about! Halloween Comicfest & the Great Pumpkin Sale: no rocks just treats!

THIS WEEK'S STANDINGS: A 25% increase in titles over last week and an unexpected 1st Place shipper are the headlines for your week in comics. 33 extra total titles over last week translates to an additional $102.00 more in comic product on the racks. At the top of the standings sits IDW shipping out over three times the amount of books they published last week with thirty five titles. That number is cut in half if you eliminate all the double covers (almost every title they are shipping has a parallel variant). In spite of shipping considerably more titles this week DC remains in 2nd Place with thirty-three titles. Image moves up to 3rd Place with twenty-two titles and Marvel tumbles from first to 4th Place with eighteen titles. Bringing up the rear is Dynamite at 5th Place with thirteen titles. Indies drop slightly to forty-three and the total cost this week is almost a wash compared to last week. Extending out the list finds Zenescope in 6th Place with twelve books (four books with twelve covers) and Dark Horse in 7th Place with ten titles.

THIS WEEK'S HIGHLIGHTS: Parallel variants fill up the racks this weeks like falling leaves in your front lawn. Our Book of the Week is a testament to the fact that intellectual properties never really die and can always find a second life in comics. IDW gives Tim Burton's cult character a second life almost a quarter century after his film debut in EDWARD SCISSORHANDS #1 (OF 5). Also back again is the gaming property D & D in DUNGEONS & DRAGONS LEGENDS OF BALDURS GATE #1. Two great tastes that may taste great together is TMNT GHOSTBUSTERS #1 (OF 4) as the Turtles and the Busters meet up for the first time. All three of these titles come with parallel 1:1 variant covers. While we're on the subject of parallel variants DC's Monster Variants grind their way through seven of this weeks New 52 titles. One of those seven titles is DEATHSTROKE #1 which is notable for being the first New 52 character to have it's ongoing series cancelled and restarted (thank you CW). One of the oddest Bat-concepts since Bat-Mite debuts in the pages of ARKHAM MANOR #1 which sees Wayne Manor being turned into the new Arkham Asylum. Over at Image FIVE GHOSTS #13 begins the "Monsters and Men" story arc in which Fabian travels to eastern Europe for an all-new adventure. Marvel's AXIS event heralds the return of a long missing Spidey villain in AXIS HOBGOBLIN #1 (OF 3). Also AXIS related is ALL NEW X-FACTOR #15 and of course AVENGERS AND X-MEN AXIS #3. Around the shrinking Indy pit this week Avatar ships CROSSED SPECIAL 2014 with three parallel variants (regular, wrap and torture). Dark Horse ships out the last of their 20th Century Fox Jedi replacements with PREDATOR FIRE AND STONE #1 (OF 4). Also from the Horse this week is the crime drama FATHERS DAY #1 (OF 4) which sees a hit man deep into witness protection running into his abandoned daughter along the way. Over at the Zenescope cheesecake factory the war of the fantastical fairy boobs ends in GFT VS WONDERLAND #4 (OF 4) and GFT INFERNO RINGS OF HELL #3 (OF 3)while GFT DARK SHAMAN #1 (OF 4) gets off the ground. Three books, nine covers-what a company!
