Don’t Miss Out On CASANOVA, The Most Mind-Blowing Book Of The Century!

August 20th, 2010 Comments off

It’s the sold-out book everyone’s talking about, the series every critic is lauding, and the most mind-bending comic of the century—it’s Casanova! Eisner Award-winners Matt Fraction, Gabriel Bá and Fábio Moon are the masterminds behind Casanova and if you’ve missed out on a single issue of the series, now’s your chance to get caught up as Casanova #3 hits stores alongside new printings of Casanova #1 and Casanova #2.

Chronicling the mad adventures of everyone’s favorite terminally directionless, morally-unhinged secret operative, Casanova #3 finds the world bracing itself for a real-life miracle man in the form of a Buddha-imitating street magician…and Casanova Quinn swoops in and snatches the would be savior!

Here’s what the critics have to say about Casanova:

“One of the greatest and strangest comic books of the last decade…” – GQ.com

“Matt Fraction’s agile blending of hyper-dense plot and substantial characters, concepts of sexuality and identity, robots and metaphysics makes Casanova that rare comic that can use genre conventions in new and exciting ways. It crosses genre boundaries and rises above any perceived limitations. In Casanova style is not substance, substance is the new style, and what a beautiful style it is: human, thrilling, transcendent.”—Timothy Callahan, ComicBookResources.Com

“It blew my mind so hard that I have never stopped picking up the pieces.” – Laura Hudson, ComicsAlliance.com

“Casanova is a delightfully crazy sci-fi romp and a great addition to the Icon line. Don’t make the mistake of passing it up a second time.” – Jesse Schedeen, IGN.com

“Fraction doesn’t waste a single panel. In fact, he fills his pages with them, but it never feels cluttered or forcibly compressed…And Gabriel Bá handles the script perfectly with his tight, highly detailed artwork.” – Danny Djeljosevic, ComicsBulletin.com

“I am tremendously grateful to Icon for giving me so many reasons to jump into the zany world of Casanova, and will be sticking around to see what happens next. Matt Fraction and Gabriel Bá have created a comic that is supremely energetic and unique…pick Casanova up and give it a look.” – Majin Fu, AintItCoolNews.com

With Casanova’s wicked sister Zephyr in tow on the new mission, will Quinn be able to get the job done without Zephyr stabbing him in the back? Find out in Casanova #3, out this September! Plus, don’t miss your chance to catch up on the whole series in one jaw-dropping sitting when Casanova #1 Second Printing Variant and Casanova #2 Second Printing Variant hit store shelves the same day!

The End Of An Era For The New Avengers

Marvel is pleased to announce that New Avengers: Finale #1 has sold out at Diamond (though copies may still be available at the retail level) and will return with New Avengers: Finale #1 Second Printing Variant! Superstar writer Brian Michael Bendis and renowned artist Bryan Hitch bring readers into the light of The Heroic Age! The New Avengers may have made it through Siege, but they will need to come face to face with their arch enemy before they can call it a day! With two new covers featuring the lush interior pages of Bryan Hitch, and with a retrospective of the New Avengers throughout the ages from some of the industry’s top artists, fans can’t miss this!

See what fans and critics have to say about New Avengers: Finale #1:

“Bryan Hitch is a fantastic choice of artist to accompany this celebration. Much of the issue involves widescreen action and punchy, dynamic splashes, all of which Hitch excels at.” —Bryan Joel, IGN.com

“Bryan Hitch is the last in a long line of all-star artists to work on “New Avengers” and he really makes the issue breathe. He has a habit of taking an issue and expanding scenes, and that shows here as the normally relaxed Bendis-written comic is even more so here, and it helps with the celebratory feeling of the issue.” —Chad Nevett, Comicbookresources.com

“If this is what we have to look forward to for the rebooted Avengers lineup, I’m thinking that the Heroic Age might be a place that we all might want to live in for awhile.” —David Pepose, Newsarama.com

“This was the series where Bendis shaped the fate of the Marvel Universe, which is the big dog in the comics industry.” —Josh Flanagan, iFanboy.com

Now that the smoke of Siege has cleared, will the New Avengers be able to triumph and usher in a new era? Find out in New Avengers: Finale #1 Second Printing Variant!

PunisherMax #1 Sells Out & Returns With New Printing!

November 20th, 2009 Comments off

PunisherMax_01_SecondPrintingVariantFrom Frank Castle’s War Journal:

Marvel announced that PunisherMax #1 sold out at Diamond (though copies may be available at the retail level). So what? You know how low crime rates have been since I came to town? I’m not taking any breaks, neither should the criminals. The PunisherMax #1 Second Printing Variant should help them out…maybe. But even I’ll admit they’ve got some heavy hitters on this one. That Jason Aaron kid might be a little young, but he’s got skills, I’ll give him that. And Steve Dillon (you say iconic, I say battle-tested)…I think I can trust him after 70 plus issues. He’s got a variant of his original cover in the works–the new one’s black and white, my kind of color scheme.

The Rigoletto Family’s got a new bodyguard. He’s not just another schlub with a taste for the big time though. No, Wilson Fisk may just have what it takes to make himself Kingpin. That’s if I don’t take him out first.

I strongly urge (don’t make me repeat myself) that retailers check their orders on PunisherMax. I don’t think I should have to explain myself but the press think it’s good enough. And the people who listen to those reporters think it’s even better. Fisk has got his heart set on moving up but it’s about time that I put him down in the PunisherMax #1 Second Printing Variant!
