Pre-order Cut-Off Dates for 12/13/21

Back and more ready to rip up all your X-Men than ever.

The weekend approaches! What could be finer? A chance to throw off the cares of the week and turn our thoughts to higher things without petty concerns of the workplace to weigh us down. Thoughts like:

  • Am I in this thing with King Shark to the limit?
  • Should I roll the dice on Pantha? What if it lets me down? Am I brave enough to be vulnerable?
  • Is two issues enough to decide whether or not I like Newbern, or will issue 3 point the way? Do I trust myself? Can I trust myself?

No pressure, but come up with those answers toot suite because Monday, 12/13 at 5:00 pm MST is your last chance to pre-order the following books before final order cut-off:

UPDATE (11/22/2021): We have some good news and some bad news. First the bad news: The final order cut-off date has passed for Nightwing #87, and so we’ve taken its page down for now lest we accidentally oversell the issue and wind up on the business end of some terse e-mail exchanges with people who paid good money to not get their Nightwing comic.

But the good news is, we were so pleased with the results of this pre-order experiment that we’ve made not only Nightwing #88 available for pre-order, but the entire range of DC Comics solicited for January and beyond! And if that’s not enough, you can also pre-order comics from Marvel, Image, Dynamite, and Scout, with more of your favorite publishers to come in the days ahead!

Thanks so much for supporting Ash Avenue Comics!

Our pre-order initiative for Batman #118’s Todd McFarlane homage variant was so successful, we’ve decided to push our luck and try it with December’s Nightwing #87! You may well ask, what’s so special about Nightwing #87, every issue of Nightwing flies off the shelves as it is and why do I not already have a pull list at Ash Avenue Comics to make sure that I get my copy every month? And we would say to you, My good friend, these are fair hypothetical questions that deserves fair hypothetical answers.

It’s because Nightwing #87 is a bravura effort by artist Bruno Redondo to tell a 22-page comic book story as one continuous image—one giant, 22-page splash image through which he unfolds the story sequentially! You’ve never seen anything like it—because no one has! Everyone’s going to be talking about it, so strike a blow against FOMO and reserve your copy today! Reserve lots of copies for your loved ones, too, they make great holiday gifts!

UPDATE (11/22/2021): We have some sadness and some gladness to share, as Marge Simpson once put it. First the sadness: The final order cut-off date has passed for Batman #118, and so we’ve taken its page down for now before we oversell the issue and invite the attention of some masked avenger who’s concluded that comic book retailers are a cowardly and superstitious lot. (Which is half true… but which half?)

But the gladness is that this pre-sale experiment has proven to be such a success that we’ve decided to offer not only the milestone Detective Comics #1050 (with its many, many covers) for pre-order, but DC’s entire range for January and beyond! And that’s not all: Marvel, Image, Dynamite, and Scout books starting from January are now all available for pre-order, with more great publishers going up in the coming days! Wow!

Ash Avenue Comics: Not cowardly and superstitious… cowardly or superstitious! Thanks for being there!

The comics world is all abuzz about Viktor Bogdanovic’s upcoming Batman #118 variant cover, a fun, fond homage to Todd McFarlane’s classic Spider-Man image from the cover of 1990’s Spider-Man #1! Originally a 1:25 retailer incentive variant, it quickly captured the imagination of the comics community, and DC has responded to the demand by making the issue available as an open-order variant.
