Hello Melters, not a whole lot to bring you up to speed on, you know why you are here, I’m about to bless y’all with some knowledge right quick and no guac isn’t extra today.

Everyone loves the Ninja Turtles, you are lying and deceiving everyone around you if you say otherwise.  When you were on the playground everyone had a turtle to be, well, if you only had four friends but regardless you couldn’t go anywhere in the late 80’s-90’s without seeing the green Teenage Mutants.  Ever since Nickelodeon purchased the rights to the Ninja Turtles the reactions to a lot of the stuff they have put out under the Turtle brand have been met with mixed reactions.  While the new cartoon series does the brand justice, the Michael Bay reboot was abysmal to watch and the upcoming sequel doesn’t fill me with high hopes either.  While the Turtles are trying to find their place in 2016 we did get a new trailer for a video game coming soon and IT LOOKS AWESOME!  The game is called, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants In Manhattan” and it really looks like they focused on the original source material from the 80’s more so than the current Bay movies.  I can’t wait!

Tomorrow, here at Meltdown Comics, we are having a special book-signing for a book that I bought the MINUTE it was put on shelves.  The book is called “100 Things Star Wars Fans Should Know And Do Before They Die” and as you may have guessed its a topic I hold very dear to my heart.  The book contains a plethora of trivia, activities and events all things Star Wars and a very fun read that encapsulates all the movies including The Force Awakens!  Come tomorrow to Meltdown for the book signing or just come buy the book you won’t regret it.


Here’s some interesting news, you all remember the Show 24 right?  Starred a character named Jack Bauer?  The dude who played him was drunk all the time?  Anyway, a while ago Fox announced that they are rebooting the series but with a different actor than Keifer Sutherland.  It was recently announced that Corey Hawkins will be playing the lead in the new reboot.  Now if that name doesn’t sound familiar he was only the guy who KILLED IT as a young Dr. Dre in “Straight Outta Compton”.  I think he did a phenomenal job in the movie and can’t wait to see more from this kid.  I never was a huge 24 fan but this may have piqued my interest.


Now as you guys know, professional wrestling is my forte’.  I play WWE 2k more than I talk to my friends.  The most recent WWE 2k16 is a great game which I love and a new DLC package was dropped today.  The “Future Stars” DLC pack has new names (mostly NXT talent) that you can add to the already MASSIVE roster.  The wrestlers included in the pack are Samoa Joe, Los Matadors, and the former NXT Tag Team Champs Blake and Murphy.  While I could have done without Los Matadors I am a fan of the inclusion of more NXT talent.  Pick it up if you wanna drop some Muscle Busters with Samoa Joe.

It’s an age old statement, often exclaimed to the Comic Gods from within a sea of single issues: “I want to read a comic, but I have no idea where to start!”

You’re in luck! @MeltdownComics has shelves full of new titles, and we’re not only talking about the slew of Marvel #1’s released week-to-week.

Image Comics continues to impress with debuts of “Mercenary Sea,” “Fuse,” and the most recent “Undertow,” an Atlantis-meets-the-Matrix epic. How do those two go together? Read up and find out.

Dark Horse‘s “The White Suits” graduates from “Dark Horse Presents” into it’s own gritty title. If you’re a fan of noir and stylish assassins, check this one out!

With a successful @MeltdownComics signing in the bag, Oni Press’ “The Bunker” shook the shelves with a first issue that will literally break your brain (in a good way). Bunker Buzzwords: Future/Past-self, Presidency, Post-apocalypse, friendship!

From IDW, the character that’s permeated nearly every artistic medium and human heart out there, the swolest of the swole: Black Dynamite! Come join Byron Minns, Scott Sanders, and Brian Ash on March 1st, 2014 from 5-8PM @MeltdownComics, and get that #1 signed. Rumor has it Scott Sanders has soul music for us!

Out of the Marvel Comics bunch, “The Punisher” makes his way to sunny LA in his first issue, with a guest appearance from a Danny Trejo look-alike and many of the LA locales you know and love. But why stop there? Issue #2 introduces you to what could be Frank’s new mascot, and a surprise visit from a familiar Marvel villain.

Lastly, but certainly not least, “Black Widow” #1 delivers a rock-solid spy drama, written by the same writer of “The Punisher,” @NathanEdmondson. Want him to sign both those #1’s for you? Join us on March 12th, 2014 from 5:30-8:30PM.

Any of these titles grab your attention? Did you already pick one of them up this week? Let us know in the comments section which #1 titles you thought were the best/show the most promise, and we’ll give that title an in-depth spotlight review.

Guns. Acid. Cameras. School. 

The themes behind the controversial Hellblazer: “Shoot” merge with the attitude of the masterpiece of teenage revolt, “Kill Your Boyfriend”, delivering a story of magic, passion and disinformation – a story that already drew praise from creators such as JH Williams III., Douglas Rushkoff, David Aja, Jhonen Vasquez, David Hine and others!

Writer Ales Kot signs at Meltdown Comics on Wednesday July 11th from 7 PM – come for the comic, stay for the fun.
