Here Ends NEW AVENGERS #33 On The Wednesday Run

New Avengers 33Sometimes, I get things wrong. Release dates and such.

That’s what happened two weeks ago in this very column, when I anxiously suggested that Avengers #44, the last issue of the acclaimed series, was the one comic book you had to run out and get!

Problem is, that issue got pushed back by Marvel Comics to…today’s date.

I still stand by that issue – and that you should make the run today to pick it up. You can read all about why you should do that right here. But today it’s joined by its sister comic book: New Avengers #33 – also the last issue of the series! You see, everything’s leading to a cataclysmic conclusion – for both our heroes and the entire Marvel universe!

Follow me after the jump for some not-so-secret but still great news!

Free Comic Book Day At Comics And More With Archaia, Andy Burns And His Princess

Today is Free Comic Book Day around the world, along with the Toronto Comic Arts Festival in downtown T.O. at the Reference Library. My plan was to hit my local comic book shop, make my way down to TCAF and then a trip to the Royal Ontario Museum, all with my little Princess beside me. However, today I feel like crap, a cold having caught up to me, clogging my ears and causing constant coughing. So out was TCAF* and the ROM and plans cancelled with the friends I was hoping to meet up with. However, the Princess and I did make the 15 minute walk from our house to our local shop, Comics and More to see what books I could pick up for Free Comic Book Day.
