A Timely Opportunity for my Fellow Procrastinators

by Wyn Buckley (You call tell because there's a pun in the title.)

So very many Marvel titles came out post-Secret Wars, I had a few that I had to say "I'll try it in trade" and I know more than few people were in a similar boat. I ended up passing up on titles like Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch, which I've only heard praise for, but jumped too late to get in single issues.

Lucky for me and others, Marvel is bringing back Timely Comics to reprint the first three issues of many of their hot new books. These Timely Comics #1 issues will contain the first three issues of titles like All-New All-Different Avengers or Totally Awesome Hulk, letting us all try out the books for less that the cost of a trade.

Way less.

These reprints will be available for $3 each, in line with the already popular $1 #1 reprints that several comic publishers have put out. I personally have already put in orders for books I missed out on, specifically the aforementioned Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch comics as well as Web Warriors. I would also highly recommend trying out Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur and The Ultimates, which I've been reading in single issues.

These $3 issues, although labeled as #1s, contain the first three issues for the series.

Saturday, February 27th marks our official rebirth as Magic Mirror Comics. In the Neverending Story, the Magic Mirror Gate is the trial that shows a hero their true self. We feel that the same can be said of finding the stories that really resonate with you, and we take inspiration from that to help us get those stories into your hands!

For all intents and purposes, the Everett Comic Stop no longer exists. As a result, any future endeavors and associations made by those at the Redmond Comic Stop will be done independently of us. If you are a box customer, your subscriptions will not be affected or interrupted. As a customer, this transition should have very little impact on your experience, except that we're taking strides to do better and provide even more great services and products. Stay tuned for more information as things unfold!
