On Sale Today: Fantastic Four

Quick, before you get the latest issue of Fantastic Four spoiled for you by CNN, NPR and Yahoo News, stop on by the Isotope today for a very special Tuesday Pre-Release made possible by the folks at Marvel Comics, Diamond Distributors, and of course your friends here at the Isotope!

This issue is shipping in a sealed commemorative bag, but if you ask nicely, I’ll let you sit down and read my open copy so yours can remain as pure and pristine as you want it.

Those of you who can resist the internet can expect some shocking revelations this issue… just look at that expression of concern podcast guest superstar Kyle Minor makes reading it!

Today = Comics! Tomorrow = Thanks!

William DeVaughn was right on message when he wrote one of the greatest songs ever recorded and in a week that’s all about being thankful, today we’re giving thanks for a great week of comics on the New Arrivals rack today. But don’t take my word on it, look at that shipping list that has everything from Batwoman #0 to Chew volume 3 to Ex Machina volume 10 to Fantastic Four #585 to the complete Al’s Baby to Chaos War: Alpha Flight #1 to Madame Xanadu #29 to Stan Lee’s The Traveler to the awesome Uncanny X-Force #2 to that anticipated new story in Detective Comics #871 to Walking Dead volume 13 *and* Walking Dead #79 on it. Nice!

The Isotope will be rocking our regular hours today and Friday, but tomorrow we’re taking the day to spend some time with our loved ones for Thanksgiving… I hope you all have a wonderful day of sharing life’s happinesses with your friends, lovers, and families. We’ll be spinning the soul classics William DeVaughn loves here all week long, because he and I think we all have a lot to be thankful for. 

Today, comics. Tomorrow, thanks.

Oh No! Warehouse Fail

While it doesn’t happen all that often, it looks like this week a few books will be delayed here on the West Coast due to some mechanical difficulties at Diamond’s west coast warehouse. Including Namor: The First Mutant, Shadowland: Moon Knight, Gravel, and the latest issue of Garth Ennis’ Battlefields.

But worry not, true believers, 90% of this week’s books are in, on the shelf, and ready to make you smile! And these missing titles will happily be arriving next Wednesday!

Not To Be Missed: Scarlet #1

Due to shipping changes because of the recent holiday new comics arrive on store shelves this week on Thursday, July 8th. And with them is Brian Bendis and Alex Maleev‘s new creator owned series Scarlet.

A bi-monthly series (that is sure to be downright gorgeous thanks to Maleev) focuses on corrupt governments, a generation on the edge, a woman named Scarlet, and revolution in the streets. According to Bendis, the book is in part inspired by author Paddy Chayefsky‘s excellent 1976 film Network.

Bendis’s first creator-owned project since Powers, this sounds like it has the potential to be one of his best works. And although I ordered a truckload of them it’s pretty certain that it’s going to sell out everywhere. If you dropped the ball and didn’t place a pre-order with us chances are Scarlet’s going to end up being a bit difficult to get your hands on… so you might want to email hidden; JavaScript is required to reserve one right away!

See more Scarlet here.
