Well the BIG day is finally here. Astonishing X-Men #51, featuring the wedding of Northstar arrives, and I can only hope the public remembers all the hype from last month and comes looking for it.
I'm tempted to rack it alphabetically under "A" instead of with the X-Men as usual just so it would be sitting beside Before Watchmen The Comedian #1.
I've  had a few people come in off the street lately to ask if there are really new Watchmen stories. So it looks like this thing could actually be reaching lapsed readers like the new 52 did.
Mars Attacks #1 ships with a record breaking 55 different variant covers, 1 for each of the original card set. Of course trying to find specific covers when few stores would buy anywhere near 55 copies...
Great week for Lemire fans as the first volume of Frankenstein ships along with a new printing of Lost Dogs, his first original graphic novel.

Remember when you pick up your Walking Dead #99 to reserve a copy of #100. DON'T MAKE THE MISTAKE OF THINKING  THERE WILL BE LOTS TO GO AROUND. Orders so far are about 4-5 times normal numbers...but if just a few people decide to grab all 8 covers,  they won't last long.
