Previously signed affidavits from Diamond and/or DC do NOT qualify retailers for participation. A new signed affidavit is needed to participate. A special item code will be assigned for these copies.  The electronic affidavit may be accessed at the FOC page that includes BLACKEST NIGHT #6. The FOC for BLACKEST NIGHT #6 closes on December 3, 2009. This FOC is for all copies of BLACKEST NIGHT #6, including copies ordered by non-participating retailers.

Retailers may offer BLACKEST NIGHT #6 for sale beginning December 30 at the start of normal business hours.  Retailers with Tuesday delivery privilege will receive a separate reminder to hold BLACKEST NIGHT #6 until December 30. Any violation of this date will forfeit their future Tuesday delivery privileges for at least six months. This remains in force even if their competitors violate the on-sale date.  DC Comics and Diamond will log compliance violations. Participating retailers who follow the December 30 on-sale date and receive no compliance complaints by January 7 will receive a FREE copy of the Diamond Retailer Summit BLACKEST NIGHT #1 Variant Edition or another short print run BLACKEST NIGHT Variant of DC's choosing.

DF REVIEW: MIGHTY AVENGERS #13

By BYRON BREWER

I hope when The Mighty Avengers becomes Captain America and the Mighty Avengers, it maintains the level of quality, continuity and human character that is in the current edition.

Of course, the writer will be the same and that will ensure that I will follow this team I have grown so fond of into the next volume.

I am a great fan of Jonathan Hickman and Rick Remender, but if I had to choose my favorite Avengers scribe of the present, it would definitely be Al Ewing.

Through event after event, crossover after crossover, Ewing has not been deterred from keeping the unique flavor of these Avengers alive. Having been raised on the Roy Thomas Avengers, probably the best period of this franchise's existence, I am impressed with what Ewing has done with story, subplot and of course character.

I just hope Marvel's enthusiasm to promote Sam Wilson will not interfere with the quality of this book and his team.

As far as issue #13 goes, another solid one for Ewing. The slowly brewing plot of the Deathwalkers is delightfully retro, and the climax is straight out of a 1970a book. Loving it!

The extension of the storyline with Luke and his father, the Mighty Avengers of the 1970s, even the development of Power Man all hit the right notes.

The wonderful art by Salvador Larroca was just icing on the cake, but I did miss Greg Land. He has done so much for this book.

I look forward to the new edition of the Mighty Avengers mag with a winged Captain America.

As long as Al Ewing is here, I will Make Mine Marvel and Make Mine Mighty Avengers!

THE FADE OUT COMES INTO FOCUS

Source: Image | Categories: Image | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


THE FADE OUT #1, the debut of the latest series from Ed Brubaker, Sean Phillips, and Elizabeth Breitweiser, uncontested noir masters, has sold out immediately at the distributor level with fans, media, and top industry professionals praising the series as the hottest new crime book on shelves.

"This is amazing. I'm totally overwhelmed. I mean, really, whoever thought me and Sean's most lo-fi idea, a noir within the world of noir films, would be our biggest hit ever?" said Brubaker.

Set in 1940s Hollywood, THE FADE OUT begins with a suspicious murder and kicks off an intricate mystery involving a noir film stuck in endless reshoots, a writer plagued with nightmares from the war and a dangerous secret, and a maniacal studio mogul and his security chief who will do anything to keep the cameras rolling before the Post-War boom days come crashing down.

The series launched with a 40-page issue that featured exclusive back page articles. For fans wishing to experience noir fiction in true ‘40s style, an oversized "movie magazine replica" variant edition with 8 extra pages of behind-the-scenes art and articles graced store shelves as well. “I dug The Fade Out by Ed Brubaker, Sean Phillips, Elizabeth Breitweiser and Image Comics so much, I had to buy both versions,” tweeted Tony Guerrero, Editor-in-Chief of ComicVine.

Entertainment Weekly featured THE FADE OUT #1 on its “Must List” while IGN called it “Mad Men but with more sex and murder.” Paste Magazine said of the debut, “Hollywood has never looked so dark, so sinister and so seductive. It’s a story that only a Brubaker/Phillips comic could tell.”

In an in-depth interview with USA Today Brubaker hinted, “Everybody wanted to come to Hollywood and be rich and famous, and very few people are going to get rich and famous. There's going to be a lot of people dashing themselves against the rocks.”

THE FADE OUT #1 has completely sold out at the distributor level, but may still be available in comic stores.

Image Comics is pleased to announce that this first issue will be going back to print to meet customer demand. The second printing of THE FADE OUT #1 (Diamond Code JUL148170) will release on 9/24.

THE FADE OUT #2 (Diamond Code JUL140545) hits shelves on 9/24.

Long distance relationships can be tough--especially when said "distance" covers several galaxies.

Nevertheless, Kitty Pryde of the X-Men and Guardians of the Galaxy leader Peter Quill have decided to make a go of it, challenges be damned. Fortunately, if Paco Medina's cover to LEGENDARY STAR-LORD #7 gives any indication, they'll at least make it to December...

"You know, if a girl braved space to save my butt despite some serious traumatic history with space-bullets I’d probably fall for her too," shares STAR-LORD editor Xander Jarowey. "Especially if she had some good mixtapes. I can feel the love tonight, can you?"

Will Kitty and Peter be able to make it work through the holidays? Find out this December in LEGENDARY STAR-LORD #7 by Sam Humphries and Paco Medina!

By BYRON BREWER

Writer Greg Pak sure knows how to tug at the heartstrings.

Those who never knew the "all-new, all-different X-Men" the first time around got a great story in Storm #2. For those of us who were readers of Chris Claremont's beginnings of this wonderful character, it was old home week.

Of course, the Morlocks have been involved in many dramatic stories, especially with their mass destruction at the hands of the Marauders. But that first personal battle between Storm and Callisto with Storm NOT able to use her powers. And all the while during the knife fight, Storm holds back on her emotions and her claustrophobia.

It was out of that battle that the haircut she sports now was born.

Her relationship with Callisto has evolved over the years, and I was glad to see that, now depowered and no longer a leader, Callisto has kept with her journey down the straight and narrow. Her concern for the lost kids was the same as it was for the lost mutants, the ones who could not pass for ordinary people on our surface world.

Storm found her now exactly as she found her years ago: a concerned caretaker of those less fortunate. With a blade.

What a wonderful tribute to Storm's life and past history worked into today's storyline. Pak does a wonderful job, and I cannot wait to see Storm's life examined more under his pen.

The art by Victor Ibanez held everything together. It was not spectacular (except in the scene with Storm blasting Callisto). instead, everything was dank and dark and gritty, like the long long saga of the Morlocks themselves. Along with it, the art seems to get smaller, almost claustrophobic. This really added to those underground scenes.

This is a great book about a great character who has been shunted into the shadows for far too long.

Let's add one more title to Storm's plethora of monikers: long-time solo comic book star!
