The kids are back and they're wearing black (becuase that's how they feel on the inside, lol). Anyway, enough Morrisey, team CSSG is here to get you excited about this week's new comics, not mourn for our eternally damned souls. Thankfully, there are lots of good shinies this week including Chuck Palahniuk's first new work since 2014; death defying inter dimensional escape artists who just might be insane; terrible Super-Villain fathers trying to do the right thing and downbeat boxers looking for luck in all the wrong places. Plus, tonight is the monthly meeting of all things comics, so join us at 6:30 pm for conversation and candy with your fellow Seattle comic readers!!
New Comic Book Day releases for new comics shipping Wednesday, October 11th! Be sure to watch the new episode of Comics Should Smell Good Wednesday morning for a full breakdown of this week's best books by your favorite comic monkeys in all internet land!
We're a little later than usual, but still full of fresh new comics as your favorite comic monkeys bring you the best books of the week!! DC continues to dominate the market with METAL and the bizarre crossover of Harley Quinn & Poison Ivy/Betty & Veronica! Riverdale will never be the same after these girls get their hands on Archie, Jughead and who knows who or what else!! In addition, this is the first week of the Marvel Legacy rebirth which Professor Marvel and Casey are covering in our second video, so be sure to catch a double dose of Comics Should Smell Good this week!!
IT ALL STARTS HERE! NOTHING WILL BE THE SAME!!
Yeah yeah, we've heard that 10 times from Marvel in the last few years, but this time might really be the kicker. Poised to uproot everything we know about the Marvel Universe, LEGACY will bridge the gap between old and new; between the heroes of yesteryear and the heroes of today to bring you the HEROES OF TOMORROW!
Featuring the return of Marvel's regular roster of beloved characters, LEGACY starts with a brand new, stand alone one shot by Jason Aaron, Esad Ribic and a host of guest artists, then envelopes the entire Marvel Universe with new numbering, creative teams and storylines that are sure to intrigue even the most jaded or lapsed reader!
Prof. Will and Casey are here to break you down on who/what/when and why--answering all your questions about this historic event! Please post any comments you might have about stuff we missed or more importantly, what YOU are excited to read in the all-old-is-new-again era of MARVEL LEGACY!!

We survived ECCC 2015, did you??!! Now that the storm has passed and life has resumed its usual revolution around New Comics Day (for us anyway) the CSSG team is back and while maybe not fully charged, still ready to drop that new new on you! Especially that new LOCAL stuff you need to know about!!
As I'm sure you've gleamed from the first few seconds of this video, our venerable Video Monkey is not here this week, but we here at CSSG persevere!! It's usually at this point where we realize just how much our little Video Monkey actually does each week (other than y'know, fling poo and eat flies) and should be given due recognition for all his hard work. Yeah, right...what the hell kinda place you think we're runnin' here, boyo? Anyway, here's Morgan and Casey with COMICS!!!
