A few months ago in a post that was swallowed by our website revamp, we regrettably announced a hiatus for many of our side projects here at Variant Edition… including our weekly newsletter, which was never quite weekly. Well folks, we’re proud to announce that The Variant Edition Regularity will be back starting bright and early on Wednesday, January 30th. Once again, it will be functioning more like a comics industry...
Variant Edition is your comic store. And now, you can help program the music we play there.
We like sharing news from companies we feel are trying to push the comics medium into interesting areas – and Ahoy is one of those companies, who not only have very interesting concepts for their books, but add a hefty amount of stories, cartoons and etc in their back pages. Check these out! AHOY Comics Announces a New Way of Comics Starting in April
Here’s a few new graphic novels that have hit the stands over the past 24 hours! See anything you like? Let us know!
Each and every Monday, we provide our awesome customers with a list of all the comics and graphic novels that are hitting the shelves for the coming Wednesday, with bits of commentary on some of the titles. (Usually.) As always, if you see anything you like, let us know and we’ll set a copy aside for you!
Intern Jim is hard at work this morning, making sure Brandon and Danica eat their breakfast. You can’t sell comics on an empty stomach! And you can’t drink the milk when the bowl is still filled with Toasted Oat-Os.
Bittersweet news. We’re glad George is taking care of himself. George Pérez Announces his Retirement from Comics
A new kind of comic book company has arrived... and you're not going to find them in most comic stores.
As of today, Variant Edition Comics will be taking over WTF+YEG’s book club. I’m honoured to have been involved with the group for almost 3 years. During that time, we developed a close relationship between not just myself, but the store. They held meetings at the shop and I gave them access to graphic novels, both in paper form and suggestions for future discussions.
The dude version of Atomic Blonde gets a third installment, and we’re so, so, SO excited. Just… don’t show this to Danica yet, because we haven’t watched John Wick 2 together yet. I’m a bad partner. I will do better, I promise.
A fine intern. Would hire. Though I suppose helping save the universe might be a higher priority. Thanks for looking out, Goose!
