New Comic Book Day releases for comics shipping Wednesday, November 15th! Be sure to watch the new episode of Comics Should Smell Good on Wednesday morning for a full breakdown of this week's best books by your favorite comic monkeys in all of Internet Land!
Lyyyyinnnngg!! Soo much lyyyiiinnnggg!! CSSG is graced this week with the presence of the all awesome talking Lying Cat plushy for your (and clearly Casey's) enjoyment!! Morgan tries to not be creeped out by Casey's weird feline noises and bring you the best books of the week! Because as we can see, Casey is a little preoccupied with the cat toy. Casey is easily amused. Morgan is not. This is why the comic monkeys of CSSG make such a great team!!
No excuses about the heat! Get your butts in here and get some comics!! Thanks for watching!
It is damn near officially spring outside today here in lovely Seattle, where the CSSG team is here to bring you another onslaught of awesomeness!! We've got time traveling bro scientists, rebel princesses, teenaged assassins, Russian spies and COPRA ROUND TWO!! ding ding!!
Rejoice fans of the mighty Morgan, for he has returned to grace us mere mortals with his presence once again!! In fact, the whole CSSG mech hype machine is here this week which is a good thing, cause there are lots and lots of shiny, new things to consume!! Kirby, Demons, brain cancer, samurai spaceships and yes, Sexual Gary!! Man, it's a good time to be readin funnybooks!!
BEWARE--the infection is spreading!!! Morgan, everyone's favorite video super-monkey has fallen victim once again to the dreaded, unrelenting TEKNO VIRUS from the far off future of 2099!! A rare and unique disease genetically engineered to destroy mutants and comic monkeys of all types, the TEKNO VIRUS (dramatic theme music should play in your head every time you read the words TEKNO VIRUS) can only be combated with the most powerful of chromium, lenticular or other shiny materials, so make sure to stock up on these new and awesome shinies of the week brought to you by the super team of ANNA-WILL-CASEY!!
MORRTAAAAAAAAALLL KOMMMBAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTT!!! den dan den den den dan (insert awesome theme music here)
The gloves come off in the second week of our low rent, video monkey-less CSSG as Morgan, Casey, Will and Anna face off to see who can do the most takes for their 3 min segment! Bloopers galore are in store for you, dear viewer, along with a solemn challenge for the robot heart man himself, Morgan!!
In the aftermath of Video Monkey and Lady Video Monkey's disappearance, things almost fell apart here at CSSG until Anna came through with the brilliant idea to do a "VLOG" as Morgan informs us that is what the kids are calling it these days... So while there might not be any pictures, titles or editing to speak of, there is no less excitement for the fantastic funnybooks that are hitting the shelves this super nice Wednesday here in Seattle.
And a BIG thanks to our honorary Lady Video Monkey Anna for staying up and editing these things together!!
Join Mr. Will Harris and Mr. J Howard Boyd for a special sneak peek at the biggest comic day of the year--FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!!! This Saturday is the big day so make sure you know the full skinny dilly with this handy dandy little video courtesy of your friends at Zanadu Comics!!
Free Comic Book Day is a single day - the first Saturday in May each year - when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE* to anyone who comes into their stores. (Limit 2 comics per customer) This is a family friendly event for comic fans of all ages, so bring the kids and get 'em hooked early!
* Not every comic book in the store is free. There is a specific selection of Free Comics available to choose from.
What better way to enjoy the summer-like sun than to stay inside and read comics??!! Ok, well for those of you who actually enjoy this shiny ass ball of burning gas that hangs above us then I suppose you can sit in the sun and read, but who'd want to do that? However you choose to enjoy your funnybooks, we have a ton of them for you this week, sit down, relax and prepare to be inundated with enough hype to fill your head like a balloon!
Welcome to another long winded rambling session from Casey and well thought out recommendations from everyone else on this gloriously rainy spring day here in Seattle! Seriously, you'd think we'd have found someone better to helm this sinking ship by now... Anyway, in addition to Anna and Professor Will, we duped local creator Arthur Wyatt, writer of the highly successful Dredd: Underbelly Movie sequel to stop by and give you a few terse words about the law and the joys of future swearing! Oh, and for some reason there is a lot of pink in this episode and a bunny that poops jelly beans...yeah, we may be running out of ideas here...
The CSSG team does an about face and shoots straight this week to bring you a slightly less confusing 20 min long, hyperbole filled barrage of non stop awesomeness in the form of shiny four color nonsense!!! It's a great spring day and what better way to end the long long long work day than with COMICS?!!!!
At all things a beginning and at all beginnings an end. This is the theme of the week as Bizarro world takes over in our special April Fool's edition of Comics Should Smell Good!! Okay, yes we know that it is April 2nd, but whatever we shoot these things the night before so shut your big face Mr. knowitall!! AHEM, I mean, uh, well- just watch the damn video.
AND DON'T FORGET ALES KOT WILL BE HERE SIGNING THINGS FROM 4-6PM!!!!!! (yes that needed to be in all caps)
Prepare for a dark time in CSSG as we attempt to put the camera in the hands on non professionally trained monkeys!! Cringe at the low light levels, squint at the fuzzy non focused frames, question where the hell all the pictures are and MORE--this week in "Wow, Video Monkey actually does do some work around here..."
Wow, talk about sh*t show...not only is this video super late in going up, but Morgan and Casey flub it through another colossal week of comics amidst the Seahawks frenzy that engulfed downtown Seattle today. Will brings you a full onslauight of Marvel #1's, including the much talked about Ms. Marvel and Anna chimes in with some great hardcovers that are weird, scary and just downright bizarre!
Quality over quantity is the theme of the week as Morgan, Casey and Will bring you the choicest cuts of funnybooks for this surprisingly nice Wednesday here in Seattle. Big thanks to everyone who contributed to our awards show and especially big thanks to those foolish enough to watch our half hour nonsense!! Have a great week!!
Ok, so we're a day late and a dollar short (maybe more than a day late, but whatever) but it is finally time to unveil the winners of our 1st ever customer fan awards!!! The full CSSG crew turned out for an evening of elegance, extravagance and of course, trained koalas! So strap on your jammy pack, clear your schedule for the next half hour and prepare to be razzled and dazzled like never before!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! Yes it's that time of year where everyone needs to pose that age old question--how drunk can I get before midnight?! For those on the sober (or just I don't wanna deal with that crap) path, we have the perfect cure for your NYE blues...COMIX!!! We've got giant bugs underneath California, dead boy detectives, teen cops from the future, monster fighting baseball teams, dead would be popes and much more!! That's right, we know we're you're spending your extra Christmas money...
It's a special holidaZe edition of out weekly youtube-y nonsense and what better gift to give than comics?!! While there may not be a whole lot of releases this week, that doesn't mean the CSSG team is any less excited about the books, especially Will who was the only one foolish enough to don that goofy ass Santa hat Perry has kept in the bathroom since 1980 something.
All kidding aside, a very happy holidays to you and yours from the CSSG team and ZANADU COMICS!!
(oh, and we drop that old school Sprite/Voltron knowledge on you unsuspecting folk-- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QdrnqRKNJSo (in case you don't know)
It's the most stressful time of the year (for some people) but here at Zanadu, its always groovin and movin' with another week of fantastically shiny NEW COMICS!! Escape the crazy holiday reindeer slay of consumption with the CSSG team as they bring you everything from evil science weed to club hopping mech pilots to the Avengers party at the end of world! More bubblegum for the brain and soul courtesy of the mighty Z!!!
It's the eye of the storm so to speak before the holiday shopping madness engulfs us in full force, but for those with geeks on their list, you've come to the right place for the weird, bizarre and the down right questionable oddities that fill every square inch of the mighty Zanadu!! As usual, Casey and Morgan are joined by the ever lovely, Ms. Anna Pederson and the ever elegant, Mr. Will Harris who bring us the very best in both main and not so mainstream comics of this fabulously cold ass week of December!!
Also, if you were given a ballot for the 2013 fan awards or downloaded one or whatever, please drop it off to the store by December 18th to be counted in our first annual experiment of 'audience participation.' Mind control is next, so be ready! Obey the Z, obey the Z obey the Z obey the Z!!!!!!!!
