Let it snow! Christmas is getting closer. Use us for all your Christmas needs.
Gaming has increased here. Our first Dicemasters game was hosted here and others have asked when the next one will be. I will try to work out a date and time when it would work best for the most people. Right now roughly Fridays at 6:30 looks to be be working.
I have even managed to have the oldie but a goodie Star Trek collectible card game make a come back here. I spent many hours playing that game with Jeff and friends when he owned Dragonfire over at Jeff’s place. The good old days. If interested in playing let me know. We are hammering out a time when best to play Star Trek CGC here at the store. I miss playing that game. Had fun playing it again Friday night.
Of course more gaming was not what I wanted before Christmas. But what the heck.
D&D is still going every Thursday at 6. Trying to work out a second group.
Also working on being open again on Sundays and Mondays for the holidays. Not working to hard at it since it will be more work for me. Just being honest. Even when I am not here odds are I am doing something for the store. Such as typing this newsletter up. Just a matter of finding a good schedule for everyone involved.
And after typing that I have found someone who is willing to work Sunday. Starting this Sunday we will be open noon to five till at least till January 3rd.
Who knows. Maybe Mondays will be next now. Christmas is getting close.
DC has announced that February their variant theme will be Harley Quinn covers. The popular sidekick of Joker looks to be featured on some cool covers come then. Newsrama.com has featured them. The one I am most interested in is the Jim Balent Catwoman variant. Been a long time since Jim Balent worked on Catwoman.
Next year Star Wars returns to comics. Marvel is doing a major push of their new Star Wars comics. Lots of variants. One in 300 variants and more.
Marvel next year will also launch a sixth Guardians of the Galaxy spin off. Guardians Team Up. Groan. Team up books do not sell these days thanks to all the characters crossover with one another all the time. Superior Team Up, Brave and the Bold, ect. all have been canceled. The Guardians of the Galaxy main book is getting ready to do a crossover with the X Men. Venom was even on the team for two seconds and looks to be returning to the team. Star Lord leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy is dating Kitty Pride of the All New X Men. Iron Man was featured in the first few issues of their series. The Guardians of the Galaxy’s regular series isn’t even to issue 20 yet and the have already teamed up with a lot of the current Marvel characters.
AXIS, Marvel’s current crossover where the heroes are flipped into a more evil side. Marvel super heroes acting like villains? I think that has been going on for years now. The Illuminati in New Avengers destroy whole universes to save their own but not telling the other heroes. Mind wiping Captain America. Superior Iron Man. Civil War. Ect.
The Flash Heroclixs have arrived. As a long time Flash reader these are pretty cool. Lots of cool characters from Waid and Johns Flash runs. The Tornado Twins as a heroclix? Never thought I would see that.
Wizkids looks to take a break till at least February for major new sets for heroclixs. I say at least since a majority of heroclix release dates are delayed badly. It’s Wizkids. For them to be on time would be unexpected.
DC’s Convergence next year could be interesting. People who have been wanting the pre 52 characters to return will get their chance. Was hoping Ron Marz would return to write some more Green Lantern. Loved his and Daryl Banks run on Green Lantern.
Jim Lee will be teaming up with Grant Morrison in February for the one shot THE MULTIVERSITY: MASTERMEN #1.
This Saturday for Magic players we will be playing at 8 for a play mat for Standard. A Commander will be the prize for Commander play.
Thanksgiving weekend (November 28th and 29th) there will be no Magic gaming due it being a holiday weekend. And we will do the same for Christmas weekend (December 28th and 29th). Spend time with your loved ones.
Watched Gotham again Monday night. Very cool. The seaon finale looks great. Alfred kicking butt. Thankfully it is on Monday nights so I can watch it. I haven’t recorded a show in years.
Diamond has announced where they will hold their next summit next year come September. And it will be in Baltimore. Not Las Vegas. Nothing against Baltimore but I doubt I will be going to the summit.
Lots of good books out this week. Wonder Woman 36 is out this week. The start of David Finch’s run on the book. Batman Eternal, Future’s End, and Earth 2 World’s End keeps up the excitement in their books. Justice League 36 has the team battling Lex Luthor’s Amazo virus. Amazing Spiderman is still kicking butt. Spider Woman received her own brand new title this week.
