Top 3 for #NCBD 12/30/15

Here's our picks of the coolest new stuff out this week:

Obi-Wan & Anakin #1 (of 5) (Marvel Comics) $3.99
Writer: Charles Soule; Artist: Marco Checchetto

Synopsis: Before their military heroism in the Clone Wars, before their tragic battle on Mustafar, and many decades before their final confrontation on the Death Star...they were Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan learner, Anakin Skywalker. It's been a few years since Obi-Wan pledged to train the young "chosen one," but even as they have grown closer through training, it has been a difficult road. Now, called to a remote planet for assistance, Master and Padawan may be pushed to the breaking point.

Why We Are Excited: The new movie has us jazzed for anything Star Wars again. And honestly, we never really saw these 2 at their best and working together in the Prequel movies before Anakin got lured to the Dark Side. So there is plenty of room for Soule and Checchetto to tell us a great Master/Pupil story and not step on the toes of movie continuity.

Deadpool & Cable: Split Second #1 (of 3) (Marvel Comics) $4.99
Writer: Fabian Nicieza; Artist: Reilly Brown

Synopsis: Call them a duo with a special kind of dynamics...call them the odd couple but with guns...call them 90s comics distilled down into two characters-DEADPOOL AND CABLE ARE BACK, BABY! That's right-The Merc with the Mouth and the Soldier with the Scowl are together again in this all-new series! When Cable gets a vision of a terrible future set off by the death of one man, he knows he must protect him no matter what! I'll get you three guesses who's been hired to kill that guy. Go on, guess. The fan favorite team of Fabian Nicieza & Reilly Brown have reunited to get the gang back together-and it feels so good!

Why We Are Excited: Fabian Nicieza knows these characters well. He wrote all 50 issues of the original Cable & Deadpool series from 2004. James from RCC Nashville says that run was his favorite stories for both of these characters, which is high praise given that Cable is his favorite superhero. So we are pretty stoked to see what further trouble these 2 can get into, even if it's just for a short 3-issue miniseries.

DC Comics Black Canary Bishoujo Statue (Kotobukiya) $69.99

Description: Kotobukiya proudly presents the next entry in its lineup of Bishoujo statues based on the Super Heroes and Villains of DC Comics with the long-awaited Black Canary! Based on a new character interpretation by Shunya Yamashita, Black Canary has never looked better! She wears her classic costume, complete with leather jacket and fishnet stockings. Standing nearly 9-1/2" tall in 1/7 scale as our heroine stretches her arms up and over her head.

Why We Are Excited: It feels like it's been a while since we've gotten our last Bishoujo statue. And this great looking Black Canary would be a great to add to our shelf along with the rest of this series great PVC statues.
