  THIS WEEKS HIGHLIGHTS
The List Is Life...
COMICBOOKMAN SEZ: We're hip deep in the Christmas rush as our regulars are mixing in with an equal number of friends and relatives with "Christmas Want Lists" clutched tightly in their fists and a look of terror washed across their faces. If you've made out one of those lists for a mom or sweetheart or worst of all, Aunt Sally, let me thank you from the bottom of my heart. Nothing helps us out more at this time of year than your Christmas List of specific items. The person with the list may not know what a "Dungeon Masters 5.0 Handbook" or a "Sandman Volume 5 Game of You" trade paperback is, but we sure do and with lists like that we can navigate in just a few short minutes. The nightmare begins when Aunt Sally come in the door with no list and tells us they are looking for "something with the Hulk". That's when things quickly degenerate into Monty Python's Cheese Shop sketch: "Hulk Comic? I don't know what issues he has at home, Hulk Trade? Ditto and they are so expensive, Hulk Action figure? Are these two the only ones you have? Hulk Poster? No, I just became an art critic and I don't like any of those three posters." On and on until they ultimately either buy a Spiderman Bust Bank (yeah, I don't get it either) or they go "Somewhere Else". Somewhere Else is a magical place that has exactly what they want even though they have no clue as to what they want, except of course that it's Hulk related. So when the 28 year old nephew gets the plastic Hulk wallet from Aunt Sally, you probably should have made out a list.

MORE INFORMATION ON THIS SALE HERE!

  At Alternate Reality we order 99.9% of the comics PREVIEWS solicits each month. Keep that in mind as you read the numbers below; they not only break down our week, but they're also a pretty accurate representation of the week in comics nationwide.

For the last full shipping week of 2014 the "Top 5" rankings break down into a fairly accurate snapshot of the year overall. In terms of product sent out the doors, DC was consistently the #1 shipper for the year and Marvel was the consistent #2. While IDW comes in third for this week, when looking at the year overall Image was actually in third place-especially with their performance in the last quarter. Dark Horse, IDW and Dynamite have all been interchangeable in the 4th and 5th place positions over the course of 2014.

For this fourth ship week of December specifically we're seeing ten fewer titles from the previous week making for an overall $18.00 lighter load on your wallet. As mentioned DC retakes the top spot this Wednesday with thirty eight titles (just one more than last week). Marvel pulls up in a distant 2nd Place with twenty-seven titles and IDW trails behind in 3rd Place with fifteen titles. Dark Horse comes in 4th Place with fifteen books (with tied ranking being decided by cost differential) and Image with a surprisingly week 5th Place showing with only thirteen titles. Indy Titles finish out the year with a twelve issue up tick over last week.

For the coming week there are 161 NEW COMICS  shipping with eight price points again ranging from $1.00 to $7.99. The largest concentration of books again falling into the $3.99 price point with the $2.99 price point trailing a very distant second. Remember, no matter what the price point, you save 15% OFF of ALL of this week's New Comics all week long only at Alternate Reality!

THIS WEEK'S HIGHLIGHTS: The last full shipping week of the year (as opposed to next week's partial releases) brings a solid selection of entertainment for all tastes. The week's 1st Place shipper: DC Comics, is once again "Bat-Heavy" with ten Dark Knight related titles: ARKHAM MANOR #3, BATMAN 66 #18, BATMAN ANNUAL #3, BATMAN ETERNAL #38, CATWOMAN ANNUAL #2, GOTHAM BY MIDNIGHT #2, GRAYSON ANNUAL #1, HARLEY QUINN #13, RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS ANNUAL #2, and finally our Book of the Week-ROBIN RISES ALPHA #1. They all arrive this Wednesday. That's almost twenty Bat-Books in two weeks! Also from DC this week is the next chapter in the Masters of the Universe saga: HE MAN THE ETERNITY WAR #1 by writer Dan Abnett and artist Pop Mhan. The handling of the She-Ra character has of late been getting some good feedback by the fan press plus this book comes with a Darwyn Cooke variant, so you may want to check it out. The House of Ideas serves up part two of Eva Bell's journey through the ages in ALL NEW X-MEN ANNUAL #1 by Bendis and Sorrentino. Marvel also continues the comic adaptation of their previous cinematic triumphs with MARVELS AVENGERS #1 (OF 2) which adapts the first Avengers film. We assume the only reason Marvel has for going back and doing a comic adaptation of a year and a half old film is there is an omnibus trade paperback out there somewhere entitled "Marvel Movies-Phase One" collecting all these adaptations under one cover. IDW is responsible for our Kids Book of the Week: GARBAGE PAIL KIDS COMIC BOOK PUKETACULAR #1
proving once again there is no fallow intellectual property that can't be dusted off and trotted back out into the markets collective conscious.
Image has two offering of note this week. THEY'RE NOT LIKE US #1 is about our disaffected youth and how they may be more connected to events than they appear. The other is GRAVEYARD SHIFT #1 about a homicide detective and his girlfriend who find their love put to the ultimate test when they run afoul of a gang of vampires. Gazing into the Indy Pit finds Dynamite shipping three specials featuring their bloody pulp heroes: DOC SAVAGE SPECIAL 2014, THE SHADOW 2014 ONE SHOT and THE AVENGER SPECIAL ONE SHOT. Each comes with a matching pseudo fifties trade dress to artistically unify them together. Zenescope takes their third and final foray into pissing off Rudyard Kipling's spirit with GFT JUNGLE BOOK FALL WILD #1 (of 5) which will end their Mowglii trilogy. Finally, we have the runner up for our Kids Book of the Week as Bongo finally gets around to giving their marble mouthed, Austrian, action movie superstar his own Simpson's One-Shot Wonders feature with MCBAIN #1.

Remember mullets and teased bangs? Stonewashed denim jackets and jeans? Well, not everything about the '80s was lame, because that's when the Garbage Pail Kids ruled the world! Those irreverent, satirical stickers quickly became a pop-culture phenomenon, but they never had their own comic book...until now!
