Attention Teachers, FCBD Is Now...
COMICBOOKMAN SEZ: One of the annual events I've come to expect every April is the pre-Free Comicbook Day (FCBD) arrival of teachers at the store wanting to know how they can get FCBD comics for their students. Especially in the week preceding FCBD, I usually get calls from not just teachers but also librarians and even some charities who want to get in on the "free comic action" for their patrons. They call me because the word has been out for over a decade now that Alternate Reality is the place to go on FCBD. No other store gives away more free books than we do. We would love to provide our facilitating educators, librarians or whomever with as many FREE COMICS as they want for their venues... except for one snag. By the week before FCBD: YOU'RE TOO LATE! Our orders for those books went in months earlier and the books I do have are for our customers. While we order FCBD comics in the thousands every year, we do no have hundreds of copies laying around to sell off to schools at the last minute. Just like the rest of our ordering, we track previous years totals per title and budget accordingly when we make our orders for the new year. While the per copy cost is extremely minimal, when you order the quantities we order do, it quickly turns into real money. So coming to us the week before FCBD is like showing up for dinner as the dishes are being washed and dried after the meal is over. Look in the fridge, there may be some green beans left in the red Tupperware.

That's the bad news but here's the good news: if you are a teacher, librarian or anyone who may want a bulk order of FCBD comics for your venue NOW IS THE TIME TO ORDER! And that's right now, as in this week or next week right now! If you look in the front section of the January Previews Catalog (also available now at the store) you'll see the listing for the almost fifty titles arriving on May 2nd for FCBD. Our orders (which means your orders) for these books have to go in on Wednesday January 28th and we will be happy to process your pre-orders for any of these titles in any quantities you wish. You can also pre-order them at our cost-so contact us about pricing, which is ridiculously cheap. So don't delay, because the time to order for FCBD is now!



 

 
  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.

IDW shipped out only one titles last week (Star Trek #40) and whenever that happens you know the dam is going to break somewhere in the schedule. This week Idea Works runs away with the top spot in the rankings with thirty five titles. The rankings then bunch up fairly close as DC takes a distant 2nd Place with twenty five titles, Marvel comes in 3rd with twenty three titles and Avatar bounds into 4th with twenty two. Avatar of course gets an asterisk next to it's name because its total of twenty two books for the week is made up of five actual titles and seventeen parallel variant covers to those five titles. Image is farther down the list in 5th Place with sixteen books. Indy Comics surge ahead over last week with sixty one books. In that total Dynamite, Boom and Dark Horse take 6th, 7th and 8th Places respectively.

THIS WEEK'S HIGHLIGHTS: This week's Book of the Week is again not a title most would expect, but deserves a look if you have a somewhat bent sense of humor. ZOMBIES VS ROBOTS #1 is IDW's attempt to push the the well established but eternally short run series into the forefront. If you ever cracked the book open you've found insanely crafted robots battling it out with the undead in package that drips as much black humor as carnage. I've always felt the beautiful Ashley Wood painted covers actually detracted from the package inside. Hopefully 40% Off will entice some new readers to give this overlooked gem a shot. Also from IDW this week (they're pushing a lot of product) is GALAXY QUEST JOURNEY CONTINUES #1 (OF 4). This is IDW's second outing into the Galaxy Quest franchise, the previous being 2008's Global Warning mini series. This time around a new creative team (writer Erik Burnham/artist Nacho Arranz) brings the original series crew together again for another bombastic journey into space. GI JOE SNAKE EYES AGENT OF COBRA #1 sees Destro and Snake Eyes breaking out of prison. MILLENNIUM #1 dusts off the old Fox series and explores whether the "Millennium Event" of fifteen years ago was actually avoided thanks to the efforts of Frank Black and FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.
Over at Marvel, POWERS #1 marks the fifth or sixth (it's hard keeping track) launching of the Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming buddy cop series. With the upcoming TV series this is a perfect jumping on point for both new and old readers. Meanwhile, in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #13 the final battle for the SpiderVerse begins here! No, it's not the final SpiderVerse-it's the beginning of the end of the storyline. BURNING FIELDS #1 from BOOM! is about a dishonorably discharged army investigator pulled back to the Middle East to discover that an unimaginable mythic evil being has been released in the desert oil fields. Valiant dug deep into their files of unused properties and dusted off IVAR TIMEWALKER #1 this week. He's a time traveler who takes clock-stopping trips into the distant past and far future, and this is his first history-ripping adventure! GROO FRIENDS AND FOES #1 is from Dark Horse and is a year long mini series which see the hapless barbarian encountering 12 different members of his cast (one per issue) over the course of the year. From the ridiculous to the blasphemous, this week's bad taste award (read: possible e-bay darling) is HOLY F*CK #1 from the folks at Action Lab/Danger Zone. it comes with three parallel variant covers (Jesus, Satan and a nun with a gun) and it's the heartwarming tale of Sister Maria who barges into a seedy Tokyo karaoke bar one night to find a sleazy naked man smoking meth. The man of course is Jesus, and Sister Maria needs him to help her and Satan stop humanity's mythological gods from messing up the Earth. Direct all complaints to Action Lab please and then check e-bay for the current auction prices on each cover. Finally, there's Dynamite relaunching their Twilight Zone license this week with TWILIGHT ZONE S&S #1 (Shadow & Substance) spinning more anthology tales in the vain of the classic TV series.
