BLOODSHOT #1 —
Acclaimed writer Duane Swierczynski and artists Manuel Garcia & Arturo Lozzi blaze a trail of destruction straight to the heart of the Valiant Universe when America’s one-man war on terror embarks on his deadliest mission yet! You are Bloodshot. You are the pinnacle of human technological achievement and the most dangerous weapon ever assembled. You’ve had countless missions, but none more brutal, more exacting than the one that now rattles through your skull. But the clock is ticking and if you don’t uncover answers fast enough, your old war buddy Apanewicz will die as a POW. No, wait — that’s not right. Apenewicz is fine. It’s your parents. Your parents are being held hostage by terrorists and they won’t make it out alive. Or was it…your wife and baby…? Learn the truth behind the most dangerous man in the Valiant Universe when Bloodshot #1 begins an all-new tour of duty this July 11th! And don’t forget to ask us about how to sign up for the one-of-a-kind Bloodshot #1 Pullbox Exclusive Variant by red hot artist Mico Suayan!

CREEPY COMICS #9 —
No rest for the wicked! Uncle Creepy doesn’t need a summer vacation when he can spend the time scuba-diving through comics’ darkest, murkiest waters. In this issue he’s surfaced with a batch of our most fearsome features to date, as Doug Moench and Kelley Jones (Batman: Unseen) continue their tale of Lovecraft insanity, Doselle Young (The Monarchy) delves into the murderous side of parallel universes, Emily Carroll (His Face All Red) brings horror from a spooky kitchen knife, and more, plus a classic reprint from Creepy magazine. (Emily Carroll is a Shuster-Award winning webcomics cartoonist from Vancouver, BC).

THE CROW #1 —
“Death and Rebirth,” Part 1. THE CROW is reborn—in Tokyo. Can a dark spirit fight for the light? THE CROW has always done just that—striking from the shadows, a kind of shadow himself. The spirit of the Crow is back, transfiguring Jamie Osterberg, an American studying in Tokyo and deeply in love with his Japanese girlfriend, Yumi… until the love of his life is stolen. The Crow must once more make the wrong thing right—but this time he might have to do it by killing his own true love…

FANTASTIC FOUR ANNUAL #33 — The Thing and The Human Torch investigate a mysterious magical paradox in space and time with the help of Doctor Strange! by ALAN DAVIS, this is the first in a series of summer annuals by the fan-favourite writer/artist and this should be a treat for old school Marvel fans like Kevin and Joe.

HARBINGER #2 — The hunt for Peter Stanchek intensifies after an epic battle with Pittsburgh S.W.A.T forces him to use his powers in an all too public episode. Now he faces the most difficult decision of his life – continue to put his friends in harm’s way or abandon them for the safety of Toyo Harada’s Harbinger Foundation? There’s a battle brewing for the fate of humanity – but just where do the lines between right and wrong, between revolution and all-out anarchy fall in the Valiant Universe? Peter Stanchek chooses his side as the definitive super-hero coming of age story for a generation with nothing to lose gambles on its future this July 11th in Harbinger #2 – arriving in stores the same day as Bloodshot #1!

HOAX HUNTERS #1 —
‘DIE OFF ANOTHER DAY,’ Part One The acclaimed backup begins its own series! A rash of mass animal deaths leads the Hoax Hunters to the Louisiana bayou. What they find is a mystery that harkens to Jack’s past – and a dangerous cryptid bent on revenge! By Michael Moreci and Axel Medellin.

THE MASSIVE #2 —
Hidden from pirates in the ice and fog of the Bering Sea, the crew of the Kapital weigh the risk of detection against the need to rescue their missing crewmates. Revealed are details about the events of the crash, including the Kapital’s resupply visit to an underwater Hong Kong and the new city that has, literally, grown out of the debris. Hyper detailed world building meshed with forward-thinking social sci-fi.

NEW AVENGERS #28 —-
an epic tie-in to Avengers VS. X-Men from the blockbuster creative team of Brian Michael Bendis and Mike Deodato! With the Phoenix Five pursuing and imprisoning Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, it’s up to the New Avengers to stage a prison break! But can Luke Cage, Hawkeye, and Spider-Woman escape from the heart of X-Men territory? It’s non-stop action!

REVIVAL #1 —
Written by Tim Seeley, art by Mike Norton, cover by Jenny Frison, variant cover by Craig Thompson. For one day in rural central Wisconsin, the dead came back to life. Now it’s up to Officer Dana Cypress to deal with the media scrutiny, religious zealots, and government quarantine that has come with them. In a town where the living have to learn to deal with those who are supposed to be dead, Officer Cypress must solve a brutal murder, and everyone, alive or undead, is a suspect. A beautiful “farm noir” that puts a new twist on the zombie genre.

SPIDER-MEN #3 —
Brian Bendis and Sara Pichelli bring you the next chapter in the ultimate Spider-Man event of the year! Now that Peter Parker and Miles Morales have met, can they both work together to defeat their foes, or will they require the help of Nick Fury and his Ultimates? Fans and critics agree, Spider-Men is a hit!

WALKING DEAD #100 —
“SOMETHING TO FEAR” CONTINUES! This extra-sized chapter contains one of the darkest moments in Rick Grimes’ life, and one of the most violent and brutal things to happen within the pages of this series. 100 issues later, this series remains just as relentless as the debut issue. Do not miss the monumental 100th issue of THE WALKING DEAD! Featuring covers by Adlard, Ottley, Phillips, McFarlane, Silvestri, Quitely and Hitch, plus an additional wraparound cover by Adlard in both regular and Chromium editions.

They’ve helped fight the Phoenix before, and this July – the Imperial Guard brings the might of the Shi’Ar army to Earth to take on the Phoenix Five!

The blockbuster creative team of writer Jason Aaron and artist Nick Bradshaw bring you high-stakes action AND the secret history of Warbird!

FEATURED BOOKS

BIG JOHN BUSCEMA COMICS & DRAWINGS HC — John Buscema has been called one of the finest comic artists who ever put pen to paper. His work for Marvel Comics on The Avengers, Thor, the Fantastic Four, and Silver Surfer are all classics, highly regarded by fans from around the world. The same is true for his definitive rendition of Conan the Barbarian-Buscema breathed life into Robert E. Howard’s legendary creation in a manner that has rarely been rivaled. IDW is proud to announce the first American publication of John Buscema: Comics & Drawings, a special edition of the fine art catalog created for the most extensive exhibition of Buscema’s art ever staged. Weighing in at nearly 300 pages, this gorgeous hardcover book is a dream come true for fans of the visual mastery of John Buscema, an artist who’s ilk we are unlikely to see again.

BLACKSAD SILENT HELL HC —
Detective John Blacksad returns, with a new case that takes him to a 1950s New Orleans filled with hot jazz and cold-blooded murder! Hired to discover the fate of a celebrated pianist, Blacksad finds his most dangerous mystery yet in the midst of drugs, voodoo, the rollicking atmosphere of Mardi Gras, and the dark underbelly that it hides! Features an extensive making-of section, with tons of prelim sketches and watercolor studies.

ORCHID TP VOL.1 — When the seas rose, genetic codes were smashed. Human settlements are ringed by a dense wilderness from which ferocious new animal species prey on the helpless. The high ground belongs to the rich and powerful that overlook swampland shantytowns from their fortress-like cities. Iron-fisted rule ensures order and allows the wealthy to harvest the poor as slaves. Delve into the first chapter of Orchid, the tale of a teenage prostitute who learns that she is more than the role society has imposed upon her. Written and created by musician Tom Morello with artwork by RAID studios’ SCOTT HEPBURN!

OUR VALUED CUSTOMERS CONVERSATIONS FROM COMIC BOOK STORE SC — The first Our Valued Customers book arrives next week! $11 for 96 pages featuring a bunch of your favorite OVC webcomic strips and 45 brand new comics appearing only in this collection! Our Valued Customers is a great webcomic that features illustrated comments overheard at comic book stores.

OVERSTREET COMIC BK PG HC VOL 42 —
Featuring two different covers — The Avengers by Joe Jusko and Catwoman by Adam Hughes. Available in hardcover and softcover versions. If you are a back issue collector, this is an annual must-buy. It’s also a great reference book for old and new comics published, and the market reports section is always an interesting read. Our own KEVIN BOYD is an Overstreet Price Guide Advisor and submitted a Market Report for this volume.

RICHARD STARK’S PARKER: THE SCORE — It was an impossible crime: knock off a huge plant payroll, all the banks, and all the stores in one entire city in one night. But there was one thief good enough to try — Parker. All he needed was the right men, the right plan, and the right kind of help from Lady Luck.The men and the plan were easy; Lady Luck was another story. She turned out to be a good-looking blonde with a taste for booze and eyes for Parker. And Parker knew this chilling caper could either be the perfect crime…or a set-up that would land him in jail-for life. Adapted and illustrated by DARWYN COOKE!

Here’s the official Press Release from the TOLI organizers:

COME TO THE TASTE OF LITTLE ITALY AND WATCH THE EURO CUP!
Mid-June weekend a celebration of Italian food, music and patio life June 15th to June 17th

College Street, Toronto – Italian villages celebrate life in the piazza, or town square, with music, food, a little vino and a lot of fun. From Friday, June 15 through Sunday, June 17, Toronto lives its own piazza experience, with the fourteenth annual “Taste of Little Italy”.

College Street, from Bathurst to Shaw, becomes a pedestrian square for the weekend, lined by local restaurants sampling their very best fare, music on every corner, shopping and exploring, and some of the best people watching in the city. Over 45 restaurants will offer expanded patios. And many of those restaurants have large screen televisions perfect for watching your favourite soccer team play during the Euro Cup!

The Taste of Little Italy is a salute to everything that makes this neighbourhood, and really the whole City of Toronto, such a great place to live,” said Lenny Lombardi,
President of CHIN Radio and Chair of Little Italy’s business improvement association. “Little Italy is an exciting area in which to live and to visit. Our retailers and restaurants are operated by families who delight in getting to know their customers. Drop in over the weekend, and you’ll see why people love this neighbourhood. And then you’ll come back, again and again.”

During the Taste of Little Italy, over 20 bands, choirs and other acts will perform from street corners stretching the length of College from Bathurst to Shaw.

Some 45 College Street restaurants will be sampling the pride of their kitchens, serving up pasta specialties, meats, seafood, desserts and other treats, all for between $2 and $7. Restaurant patios will offer Sambuca Ramozzotti, and ice cold Coca Cola.

“The Taste of Little Italy allows you to experience a little bit of Italian culture and cuisine. Try a Ramazzotti Fresco and enjoy the music said Lombardi. “There’s more to
see, more to do, and more than enough to eat and drink. You can check it out for yourself on www.tasteoflittleitaly.ca, or better yet – see you on the Piazza.”
