Well, this is a little different! As you may or may not know by now (and quite frankly, you SHOULD know), this week is actually Indy Comic Book Week! All of the bigger publishers are taking a break to relax, enjoy some Mojitos on a beach, and not worry about the multiverse for a brief period of time.
However, since the big two are technically both releasing books this week, this article still comes out to let you know!
DC will only be publishing Blackest Night #6, for $3.99.
“The secrets of Nekron are revealed as darkness consumes the DC Universe. Everything else: TOP SECRET.”
Marvel will be releasing an exclusive Fall of the Hulks: Alpha variant, for $3.99. They will also be releasing a free comic book entitled Origins Of Siege.
“SIEGE is almost upon us! And this special giveaway issue contains everything readers will need to prepare themselves for the ultimate conflict to hit the Marvel Universe, six years in the making! Showcasing an ALL-NEW lead-in story featuring Loki, the God of Evil, ORIGINS OF SIEGE also contains an ALL-NEW origins section covering all of the major players in the battle, as drawn by the biggest artists at Marvel, as well as pinups and a checklist so you don’t miss a single important issue. All that and a preview of SIEGE #1! It’s time!”
Other than that, it’s all indy stuff! So go find a participating retailer and enjoy! Your wallet will also thank you for the break.
