In one way or another, we are asked, “Which comic books should I be reading?” or, “I’m new to comics, what’s a good place to start?”  Longtime readers and most definitely those newer to the awesome world of comics can find the Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions overwhelming. Well, where do you begin? There answer. The options are endless, but we are here to make finding your place a less daunting and even more exciting and fun than you may have expected.

Every Wednesday, we open the shop with new issues for comic books and graphic novels. Check in with us each week to see what is new and we'll even through in our thoughts and recommendations. Because we'd like to consider ourselves more of a community than a store, we hope to hear your thoughts too.

OK, so first off: that ending of METAL #1 — FREAKIN’ HUGE, right? We gotta tell ya now: if you’ve never read THE SANDMAN, and are wondering just why we’re so crazy excited about how issue #1 ended; then do yourselves a favor and pop by the shop this week and scoop SANDMAN VOL.1 when you grab METAL #2! Just trust us!

OK, now, moving ahead here — METAL #2 is totally crazy awesome in every way you could imagine.

The dream team of SNYDER, CAPULLO and GLAPION (BATMAN: Court of Owls and so much more!) continue to deliver what is easily the biggest, best DC Comics event since BLACKEST NIGHT, and we are PUMPED for what’s coming next!

As Superman and Wonder Woman hunt for a missing ally, Batman investigates a mystery spanning centuries.

When the World’s Greatest Detective discovers a foe even greater than the Justice League could possibly imagine, will Earth’s heroes be ready?

What’s METAL all about? Spinning out of a mystery that Batman has been investigating ever since the very first issue of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s run that began with THE COURT OF OWLS, and has continued into Rebirth with the recent revelations from THE BUTTON storyline, METAL is the culmination of everything that all star BATMAN creative team Snyder and Capullo have been building towards for the last few years.

Whether it’s Nth Metal or Doctor Fate’s helmet – there’s a lot of strange and mysterious metals in the DC Universe that do strange and mysterious things.

And, there’s something about them that’s connected to the entirety of the DCU Multiverse in a big way.

You better believe BATMAN has been on top of this from the get go — but, now, the very DARK MATTER that he’s been investigating is beginning to seep into the reality of the current DC Universe… and with it, it’s bringing something very interesting: the Dark Multiverse.

Just like there’s 52 Earths, and a different reality for each – there’s a dark side to these worlds, a dark multiverse, and as it’s tentacles extend into the DC Universe.. they’re changing it in a very frightening way.

All the mysteries you’ve been waiting to see come to light, from the myster of the THREE JOKERS, to the long-time intrigue surrounding things like Hawkman and Nth Metal.. it’s all going to be explored here in METAL!

Even more exciting — this storyline delivers the first real crisis of the Rebirth era, as the DC Universe finds itself terraformed into a horrific mirror of itself.

Didn’t think Gotham couldn’t get any scarier? Wait until you see it after the Dark Matter has had its way with it.

Wanna get caught up? We’ve got issue 1, along with the preludes DARK DAYS: FORGE and CASTING, in stock now!

The superstar BATMAN team of writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo reunite for a massive, universe-spanning event!

DARK DAYS: THE FORGE and THE CASTING hinted at dark corners of reality that have never been seen till now! Now, as DARK NIGHTS: METAL begins, the Dark Multiverse is revealed in all its devastating danger-and the threats it contains are coming for the DC Universe!
DARK NIGHTS: METAL is a DC event unlike any other-one that will push Batman, Superman and heroes of the Justice League beyond their limits to take on threats unlike any our world has ever seen! It will take the combined might of the World's Greatest Heroes as you've never seen them before to face what's coming their way!

"I haven't been in a comic store in about 6 months before I started coming here, and so glad this place is in Columbiana.  Even if you are not into comics and just looking for a gift for someone who is, staff will help you find something great. It's apparent that they love comics as much as we do!"
