Hey there, my faithful comic art fiends! Time to once again give you the lowdown on some upcoming work from our talented creators, that's due to hit the comic shops this week. So, let us get to it!
This week, we have the release of Batman and Robin #3, featuring the inking prowess of Mick Gray, as DC Comics continues the "steamroller" know as The New 52! In this installment, as Robin does all he can to keep his own killer instincts at bay, Batman focuses his energies on Nobody, the deadly enigma from Bruce’s past who has arrived in Gotham and is hellbent on forcing him to accept a new world crimefighting view, even as he infiltrates the Waynes’ personal lives. The drama and action continues!
While many of these New 52 books are getting some nice buzz, Batman and Robin is certainly one of the most praised. Just look below at what some of the critics are saying around the weberverse:
"...Batman and Robin #2 is a fantastic follow-up to a spectacular issue #1." - Erik Norris of IGN Comics
"Batman and Robin #2 is simply a comic with a lot of soul. We need more of this." - Devon Sanders of Chud.com
"Batman and Robin #2 was another great entry from the team of Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason." - Kevin of Comic Book Revolution
"There's always room for a comic like 'Batman and Robin'..." - Greg McElhatton of CBR
" Gray’s work gives definition to Gleason’s pencils... It’s breathtaking work." - Iann Robinson of Crave Online
" Worth a look." - Alan Rapp of RazorFine Review
As you can see, the good word on this book doesn't seem to be slowing down. So, make sure to pick up a copy of the latest issue at your LCS this Wednesday. Just look for the cover image shown here. But if you are the impatient type, or simply need more convincing, make sure to check out this six page preview of Batman and Robin #3. You'll be glad you did.
Also, I have an update on the scanner issue. We soon might have a new one, which will mean better quality images of future art updates (not to mention better scans of some of the recent ones we've had). It's not a sure bet just yet, but I'm hopeful that by the end of this month Sequential Treasures will be back to full operating capacity, as far as providing great images of our comic art for sale.
And speaking of that, sales have been... how to put this... extremely dry of late. I'm really at a loss to explain this, especially as we've been updating new art for sale fairly regularly again. With the holidays just around the bend, I'm hoping to see amajor change on this, so we can end our year on a high note. We've even lowered the prices on most of our current inventory. So, if you've been pinching your pennies, now is the time to strike. Stop by our art gallery and place an order. Remember, all art orders of $150.00 or more get FREE SHIPPING anywhere in the world! Can't ask for much better than that, can you?
Well, that's all for now. I'll be back soon with more news and maybe even an art update. Until then, peace out!
