As always, we have FREE COMICS every day at the Escapist Comic Bookstore. First 2 comics on the sidewalk sale table are FREE. 50 cents per copy after that.
Check out the new INDIE Comics.
Get together with a group of people who (like you) read comics and want to talk about them. Each month we discuss a different graphic novel. It is a great way to expose yourself to a comic that you might not have tried if were not for that friend who suggested it. The reading selections are nominated by group members and chosen by the group, and all of us are (yes) friends having met at the group.
This month we are reading:
The team behind the critically acclaimed revamp of Batgirl returns with an exciting sci-fi action-adventure series! By day, Domino Swift competes for fame & fortune in a worldwide motorcycle racing league. By night, she cracks heads of rival gangs in brutal bike wars to gain possession of a rare, valuable contraband: an engine-boosting "machine narcotic" known as Crush.
Our selection for the next month is
After having risen from the rubble of the Civil War, Jennifer Walters reenters the world a very different kind of hero. Fueled by a quiet rage, Jen is determined to move forward with her life - but the pain of the past and all that she's lost is always there. An undercurrent, a pulse waiting to quicken - and can trigger her transformation into the one thing over which she has no control. As Jen returns to legal practice, her newest client struggles with her own dark secrets. What happens when a fear is so strong, it becomes a destructive force in its own right? Jen is about to find out - and a string of murders may leave her in over her head as a mere lawyer. Must she give in to her anger...and become the Hulk?!

Hosted by Escapist Comic Staff (Jessica Balboni and Jesse Hett), the Escapist Comics Podcast features reviews of the current week's comics and insightful and often comedic looks at comics today, comic book movies, tv, celebrities, and sometimes a bit of gossip. If it looks like a comic and smells like a comic, it's fair game. Many of the podcasts feature comic creator interviews. Those who have appeared on the podcast include Rick Remender, Brian Wood, Alex de Campi, Becky Cloonan, Matteo Pizzolo, Matthew Rosenberg, Babs Tarr, Jason Latour and countless others. (well maybe it's a number you can count to but that doesn't sound anywhere as good as "countless", does it?)

This is directed to the contestants of our "When Does Wolverine Come Back to Life" contest. We still have the ballots and the prize but, according to the contest definition of what qualifies as back to life (actual Logan, no clone, no fauverines), he is still DEAD. All New Wolverine is a woman ,Old Man Logan came from another universe, and Secret Wars solved nothing. Keep waiting... Rumors abound.Back to top
