Top 3 for #NCBD 1/13/16

Here's what we are excited for that's coming out this week:

Walking Dead #150 (Image Comics) $2.99
Writer: Robert Kirkman; Artist: Charlie Adlard

Synopsis: In the 150th issue, Rick Grimes finds himself... BETRAYED. Special extra-sized Anniversary Issue--40 pages for only $2.99!

Why We Are Excited: It's the comic book (and TV show for that matter) that constantly seems to defy the norm: the longer they go on, the better it seems to get. Twelve and a half years after issue #1 launched and the series still continues to find new fans while keeping the original fans as interested and invested as ever. Happy 150th issue (that's a rare thing to say in today's comic book world)! We can't wait to see what happens to Rick and Company for many more years to come! As long as it's not that alien invasion Kirkman has joked about in the letters pages...




Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers #0 (Boom!) $3.99
Writers: Kyle Higgins, Mairghread Scott; Artists: Daniel Bayliss, Hendry Prasetya; Cover Artist: Goni Montes

Synopsis: It's Morphin Time! The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers make their BOOM! Studios comic debut in this kick-off #0 issue that sets the stage for the rest of the series. After escaping Rita Repulsa's mind control, Tommy Oliver, the Green Ranger, joins up with the rest of the Power Rangers to combat her never-ending evil plans. Any semblance of a normal life is gone for Tommy now, but with his newfound family there lies hope for a brighter path. Includes the short story from the San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comics!

Why We Are Excited: The original Rangers are back! There have been several teams over the years, but none were as great as when Tommy, Jason, Kimberly, Billy, Zack and Trini were in control of their Dino Zords and putting a stop to Rita's evil plans. And if having the original Rangers back isn't enough to satisfy you, you have to check out the amazing covers for each Ranger by Goni Montes. It's Morphin' Time!

Secret Wars #9 (Marvel Comics) $4.99
Writer: Jonathan Hickman; Artist: Esad Ribic; Cover Artist: Alex Ross

Synopsis: GENESIS!

Why We Are Excited: It's finally here! After SEVERAL months of delays and even adding an extra 9th issue to this crossover miniseries, the final Secret Wars book is hitting our store shelves. And while the weekly comic buyers will complain for a little while about how long it took to get to this issue, all will be forgiven and forgotten over time (hey, this isn't the first late comic book ever) if the story remains strong and wraps up fittingly. Plus, now we can see how this universe became Marvel's All-New All-Different world of re-launched books that have been filling the shelves the last couple of months. If you've already forgotten what happened, or need a refresher of the storyline, Marvel released a nice re-cap video to help. We've posted it below, but please be aware that there are several SPOILERS in this video, so if you haven't caught up with your reading, wait to check out this video.
