Join Us For A Judicious Jamboree of Joy and Jubilance (in comic book form) on June 5th, 2012

Once again a HUUUUUGE week here at The Lounge with a wide variety of new releases and a good number of old favorites finally available for purchase again. It would be foolish to pretend the biggest event in new comics releases this week isn’t BEYOND WATCHMEN: MINUTEMEN #1 – so take your sides as to whether or not it’s an aberration of creative bankruptcy or another example of a great comic by our pal Darwyn Cooke (for the record – we’re in the Great Comic camp).  Kev seems to be really excited by the arrival of Valiant’s HARBINGER #1 as well as the second issue of X-O MANOWAR. LOUNGE favourite POPEYE finds its second issue on our stand, as well as works by LOUNGE -pals Ramón Pérez (A TALE OF SAND – back in stock!), and Micheal Cho (BACK ALLEYS AND URBAN LANDSCAPES). Did we mention LOXLEYS AND THE WAR OF 1812 by Allen Grant, Claude St. Aubin, and Lovern Kindzierski? Because we sure should – historical drama and a kid-friendly storyline makes for one of the best indie books we’ve seen in a long time.  Top it off with a broad variety of books on drawing by ANDREW LOOMIS, BURNE HOGARTH and other assorted artbooks and there’s a little something for everyone

An Intriguing Itinerary of Incredibly Interesting Imaginitive-Illiads and Illustrator Interviews, Incoming May 30, 2012

The following new comics, magazine, books, statues, etc. are slated to arrive at the Comic Book Lounge on Wednesday, May 30th. The list below includes some reorder items, so please let us know if there is anything here you want us to set aside for you!

The obvious must-see item is this week’s history making and fan-head-exploding DOCTOR WHO and STAR TREK franchise cross-over, ASSIMILATION [SQUARED], but other books well-worth checking out include WALKING DEAD #98 (a key issue leading into the upcoming 100th issue extravaganza), and the New 52’s rebooted RAVAGERS in its first issue. We have art books available such as FLESK PRIME and books devoted to the work of JOHN CASSIDEY, GENE COLAN, JOHN ROMITA Sr and GEORGE PEREZ.  All for the taking, so don’t be shy!

A Herculean Hodge-Podge of Heroic Histories and Helpful Handbooks Honourably Hoarded and Handed-Out to those Who Have A Hardy Hankering on May 23rd, 2012

Not a bad week at all on May 23rd, and we have a remarkably good number of non-fiction works coming in that are likely to be of interest for comics fans.  The COMIC BOOK HISTORY OF COMICS takes a look at the medium, in comic book format, from it’s earliest beginnings to the present day with a special emphasis on the significant moments and creators who influenced the industry – by Fred Van Vente and  Ryan Dunlavey who brought us ACTION PHILOSOPHERS!   Andrew Loomis’ SUCCESSFUL DRAWING is a wonderful text for artists and comic fans interested in anatomy and expressive illustration.  Toronto’s son and longtime LOUNGE-friend Scott Robins’ PARENT’S GUIDE TO COMICS FOR KIDS showcases the most kid-friendly entries in the market today and outlines the ingrediants that make for something that is entertaining and appropriate for younger readers.  Meanwhile, as far as the ongoing periodicals are concerned, the machinations of the Parliament of Owls are still happening in DC’s Batman titles, the Avengers are still laying the smackdown, and vice versa, on the X-Men, Darth Vader gets his own title from Dark Horse Publishing, and Wil Wheaton’s character in THE GUILD gets his own spin-off comic while GODZILLA, the King of All Monsters gets his own ongoing from IDW.

Poor Alan, back when he was poor.
An accurate, if irreverent, look at Alan Moore’s beginnings from THE COMIC BOOK HISTORY OF COMICS — wait’ll you see how they handle Stan!
