Join Chip Zdarsky (Sex Criminals the Duck [sic]) and Kagan McLeod (Infinite Kung Fu [sic]) as they put the “fi” back into “sci-fi” and pretty much disregard the “sci” part in this epic story of punching and love!

Convergence #2The epic, world-shattering Convergence event continues! And the fate of the entire DCU - past, present, future and beyond - is at stake!

The end begins here for the DCU!

Wednesday, April 1, 2015

Convergence #0Where do worlds go when they die?

The Earthquakes felt round the Multiverse, Superman’s lost days after “Doomed,” the World’s End - all these points will converge as the history of the DCU is spun from a new perspective, the perspective of a mad god and his arrogant child.

Alex Braith is on board retracing her sister’s steps to the refinery moon, hoping to collect her remains and find some answers. The questions keep coming though…

How did her sister die? Where did her cabin mate disappear to? Who is that creep across the hall? And why does she always feel like she’s being watched?

Inspired by classic mysteries and weird fiction, Southern Cross is a crucible of creeping anxiety and fear as Braith struggles with the ghosts of her past on board a ship that holds secrets best kept buried.

Written by Becky Cloonan. Art by Andy Belanger.

When her rescue came, she grabbed a blaster and joined the fight, escaping back to the Rebel Alliance and helping strike the biggest blow against the Empire - the destruction of the Death Star.

But in the aftermath of that victory, the question remains…what is a princess without a world?

Matt Price’s best graphic novels of 2014!

Wednesday, January 7, 2015

Itching for something new and different to read to start the new year? Then check out Matt Price’s picks for the 10 best graphic novels of 2014!

True-life stories of aging parents, up-and-coming rappers and superstar wrestlers mingled with fictional tales of alternate worlds and 1940s detectives and superheroes in a wide selection of graphic novels worth reading in 2014.

Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant?1. “Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?” (Bloomsbury)
Roz Chast’s memoir about dealing with her aging parents is honest and heartbreaking. But Chast manages to find humor and poignancy as she recounts her time as a conflicted caretaker for her parents.

2. “Seconds: A Graphic Novel” (Ballantine Books)
“Scott Pilgrim” creator Bryan Lee O’Malley returns with a full-color graphic novel about Katie, a chef who finds magic mushrooms that give her second chances to change her decisions in the past.

3. “The Shadow Hero” (First Second)
Gene Luen Yang and Sonny Liew look at the Golden Age comic-book hero the Green Turtle and extrapolate a possible origin of the character, who may have been comics’ first Asian-American superhero.

4. “Kill My Mother” (Liveright Publishing)
The 85-year-old Jules Feiffer has created a graphic novel tribute to the likes of Chandler and Hammett that examines and explores noir tropes in a fresh new way. The cartoonist, who has won an Oscar and a Pulitzer Prize, likely doesn’t need more accolades. But with this excellent graphic novel, he’s due them. Kinetic, insightful and instantly engrossing, “Kill My Mother” is one of the top graphic novels of the year.

5. “Here” (Pantheon)
In “Here,” Richard McGuire tells the story of a single space. The graphic novel follows the events that have occurred in one room over the course of centuries.

6. “Sugar Skull” (Pantheon)
“Sugar Skull” is the conclusion of Charles Burns’ graphic novel trilogy that began with “X’ed Out” and continued in “The Hive.” The journey of artist Doug and his avatar Nitnit, an anagram for and homage to Herge’s Tintin, is completed in this volume, as Doug has to confront his own self-deception. It’s a deeply psychological look at modern life.

7. “Doctors” (Fantagraphics)
In “Doctors,” Dash Shaw crafts a science-fictional story of a medical marvel with a dark downside. The Charon is a device that allows a doctor to enter a patient’s afterlife via a memory in the patient’s mind. The Charon can guide the patient back to life, but the process leaves the patients deeply disturbed, as they are pulled from the perfect afterlife they have created in their minds. Psychologically moving and unsettling.

8. “Over Easy” (Drawn and Quarterly)
Mimi Pond transports readers back to the early 1970s in California, as hippies gave way to punks and Pond was a waitress at the Imperial Cafe, which hosted an oddball yet endearing cast of characters.

9. “Andre the Giant: The Life and Legend” (First Second)
Box Brown has researched the life of one of the best-known professional wrestlers of all time and crafted a compelling story that looks at the impressive yet flawed man behind the charismatic TV persona.

10. “Hip Hop Family Tree Vol. 2: 1981-1983″ (Fantagraphics)
Ed Piskor continues his comic strips examining the early days of hip-hop. In this volume, hip-hop begins to evolve into an industry, with the pros and cons that implies. Piskor brings these stories to life while at the same time invoking the style and braggadocio of early 1980s Marvel Comics, which seems strangely appropriate. Rappers including RUN-DMC, NWA, The Beastie Boys, Doug E Fresh, KRS One, ICE T and Public Enemy appear in this volume’s stories.


Matt Price’s best comics of 2014!

Wednesday, December 31, 2014

Speeding Bullet Comics owner Matt Price wrote about his top 10 comics of 2014 for NewsOK! Check out the list below, then stop in the store to check out some of these great issues!

The following are Matt’s selections for the 10 best comic book series of 2014!

Wicked + Divine1.”Wicked + Divine” (Image Comics). Writer Kieron Gillen and artist Jamie McKelvie crafted this story of gods returning to Earth. In the mythology of the series, every 90 years, 12 gods incarnate as humans, to live among the people of Earth. But two years later, they are dead. This time around, most of the gods have incarnated as musicians or performers, as they still seem to crave the adulation of the masses. But these aren’t benevolent gods; Gillen looks at the relationship between art and artist as well as artist and celebrity culture through a scathing metaphorical lens here, while at the same time providing a thrilling and at times disturbing tale. Colorist Matthew Wilson brings a warm palette that provides a poppy glamor to the series. McKelvie’s layouts and designs are likewise brilliant.

2.”Saga” (Image Comics). Writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Fiona Staples continue the story of parents from opposite sides of an intergalactic war. This mature-readers comic mixes space opera with family drama, as the relationships between characters are the true “Saga” within.

3.”The Multiversity” (DC Comics). Grant Morrison works with a variety of artists to tell the tales of many alternate worlds in the DC Comics pantheon, all apparently at risk from a coming apocalypse. There are epic ideas, heroes at the brink, and all kinds of metatextual hints to analyze.

4.”Shutter” (Image Comics). Kate Kristopher is a famous explorer in a line of famous explorers in a fantastic world in “Shutter,” from writer Joe Keatinge and artist Leila del Duca. Though she’s left that life, a family secret forces her back in this imaginative tale.

5.”Lumberjanes” (BOOM!). Writers Noelle Stevenson & Grace Ellis are joined by artist Brooke Allen in this story of five best friends at a decidedly unusual summer camp. It’s an all-ages title that really will appeal to all ages.

6.”The Fade Out” (Image Comics). The death of a movie starlet in 1948 Hollywood kicks off this noirish mystery series from Ed Brubaker and artist Sean Phillips.

7.”Transformers vs. G.I. Joe” (IDW Publishing). Writer/artist Tom Scioli, with co-writer John Barber, mixes 1980s action toys with Jack Kirby-style dynamism to create one of the most oddball, yet amazing, action titles of the year.

8.”Astro City” (DC Comics-Vertigo). Kurt Busiek and Brent Anderson (with occasional guest artists) examine the superhero genre from a variety of viewpoints in the always-excellent “Astro City.”

9.”Ms. Marvel” (Marvel Comics). Writer G. Willow Wilson and artist Adrian Alphona introduced one of Marvel’s most popular new characters in quite a while in Kamala Khan. She’s a Pakistani-American teen from New Jersey who finds herself in over her head when she receives superpowers. The character-driven drama is reminiscent of the best of early “Amazing Spider-Man” while at the same time being thoroughly modern.

10.”Low” (Image Comics). Writer Rick Remender joins artist Greg Tocchini in a beautifully drawn aquatic fantasy. After the expansion of the sun, mankind has been driven underwater to survive. While probes search for a safe haven on another planet, mankind dwindles into decadence below.

Son of Batman AFStill doing your shopping for the holidays? Don’t worry because Speeding Bullet has you covered!

This week we have a ton of products in this week for the action figure aficionado in your life.

Based off designs of the much anticipated Son of Batman animated movie comes the next wave of action figures from DC Collectibles!

In 2013, Hasbro took collectible Star Wars action figures to the next level with the introduction of the 6″ Black Series action figure line! This exceptional collection of figures features incredibly accurate design and a high level of articulation of the greatest characters from the Star Wars universe. This week we have Anakin Skywalker!

Captain Kirk is the fearless young man who leads the U.S.S. Enterprise and will not bow to any threats. Accessories include the communicator, to pose him as if he is contacting the Enterprise, his phaser and utility belt, to enjoy a style unique to the captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise.

Spock’s impassive personality and unique look can easily be identified as an icon of the STAR TREK series. With this PLAY ARTS KAI iteration, we have incorporated various pieces and parts to recreate his style to the utmost. Accessories include a communicator, phaser, utility belt, and an alternate hand that replicates a Vulcan salute.

Both figures come with a display stand.

We have all these figures and more! And if action figures aren’t on your shopping list, we also have some new statues out this week…

The Mistress of Magic Zatanna weaves a spell of transformation on John Constantine with this stunningly stylized statue of the magical heroine based on the popular pinup style of the 1940’s and 50’s from the DC Bombshells collection of art. Very limited run!

The Emerald Archer appears, posed with a wide stance as he scans for enemies and prepares to draw an arrow. With reinforced boots, a padded chest piece, and armored gauntlets Green Arrow is ready for anything, and the gold accents shine on his buckles and arrow emblem belt buckle. Wearing his trademark green hood and mask, the focused hero still shows off a bit of his blonde hair and scruffy beard.
