Guest blogger Joel here to remind you that you should come down to Legends to get the latest on what’s happening in the crazy world of comics. Check out this list of 5 awesome books released in the last couple years!
We are very pleased to represent a collection of stellar examples of the best days of the UNDERGROUND COMICS. Including a full run of ZAP as well as WEIRDO and ARCADE, not to mention those FABULOUS FURRY FREAK BROS. this collection represents the best of a halcyon era of comic art. From Crumb to Spiegelman the giants of the movement are jammed in our store. A rare chance to be enthralled and offended by the best.
What are my two favourite items from the 20th Century? Why, comic books and vinyl records of course! I guess this is why I spend all of my hard-earned money producing thousands of each. I’m only mentioning it here, because I guess that’s how a real sales pitch is supposed to work. But what do I know?
Come see us eat our words as we are forced to admit that the DC reboot of 52 new titles is more than a gimmick and more than an excuse to frustrate obsessive completist collectors. In fact we are ecstatically enthusiastic about Grant Morrison’s daring Action Comics (“Because that ain’t Superman!”),Batwoman with visionary art by J. H. Williams III (right), and the unholy wholly original writing of Animal Man by Canada’s genius boy wonder Jeff Lemire. “They” were right. It isn’t time to stop reading DC. It’s time to start!
