Popeye # 1 – the book of the week at TCBL

Where have we seen this before?
Did you get your copy of Popeye #1 yet?

Here at the Lounge, we LOVE Popeye and IDW sure didn’t disappoint with the debut issue of this new (hopefully) ongoing series. Very much in the flavour of the work of Popeye’s creator E.C. Segar (and we know because we just finished reading the last and final volume of Fantagraphics amazing collection of the complete Segar Popeye).

We’re down to just a handful of copies of this great book, so if you have any interest in checking this out, make sure you get one while they are still available. We have some of the Fantagraphics collections in stock, including the final volume 6 – My Lil’ Sweet Pea.

It’s also a hit — Popeye #1 has outsold every book published on Wednesday, April 25th except Avengers vs. X-Men 1. Shows what happens when ya eats your spinach!

An Engaging Enlistment of Effortlessly Entertaining Entries to Excite and Entice you on April 25th, 2012 – here at The Comic Book Lounge

This week is an abundance of long awaited firsts and lasts – Popeye’s first appearance in a new Elzie Segar-styled release in possibly about 70 some years, JMS & Chris Weston’s five-years-in-the-releasing mini-series THE TWELVE finally sees it’s final issue, Jonah Hex starts off a Batman storyline for the first time in our memory in ALL STAR WESTERN, and the amazing AMANDA CONNER is featured for the first time in a nice high-end art book examining her career.  Get ‘em all come April 25th at THE COMIC BOOK LOUNGE AND GALLERY!

A Delirious Delegation of Dynamic Delights, Designated for your Delectation on April 11th!

Given the spectacular splash of Vaughn & Avery’s SAGA last month, many will be glad to see #2 out on time and ready this week. Looking forward to Johnathan Hickman’s SECRET #1 this week as well as more of the ongoing AVENGERS vs X-MEN excitement, BATWOMAN, BATMAN & ROBIN, FANTASTIC FOUR and CONAN – oh man – there’s a lot of good books this week…

SAGA #2 - think it'll sell out as quickly as the first issue did?
We just hope we have enough for everyone!
