“Free Comic Book Day” is currently underway and I was on point at my local retailer of Galaxy Comics in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn nice and early to take advantage of the titles being offered before any of them ran out of the supply. Let’s head inside and start browsing and making some critical choices of what to fill our bag with.

Last month I did a quick overview of the titles that interested me the most and if you feel like checking that summary out just click HERE. Fortunately all of the issues that I wanted and then some were available. Let’s examine in visual together, I will not be saying much along the way.

Mapping Out Your 2019 “Free Comic Book Day”

As we are a few weeks away from the 2019 “Free Comic Book Day”, I wanted to take a few minutes of your time to talk up some of the issues that most interested me. Now I pretty much lean towards the superhero and science fiction titles if anything but as I glanced at the numerous free provisions that will be out there on that first Saturday in May, noticed some others that were a definite curiousity. I’ve snagged the images from the Official FCDB Website but if you want a deeper overview of what each title is about you should click over to them care of THIS LINK. My plan for this narrative is to group the issues into the “Must Have”, “Would Like To Have” and are “Somewhat Curious” about. Let’s go.

MUST HAVE: My “MUST” have list is a little longer than I anticipated for this years FCBD and of course I don’t know what my local retailer is limiting customers to. If I can snag “10” and these are all on the shelves I am good to go because with “Avengers” being a hot commodity thanks to the “Avengers: Endgame” film opening up soon this will likely disappear from the shelves. “Deadly Class” has a hot show, and “Spawn” is getting a new movie and who doesn’t love a little “Spider-Man” at the end of the day. A big list but that’s bound to happen.

Now Streaming: “Stranger Things” on Netflix (10/27/2017)

The show “Stranger Things” has become quite the hit across the interests of fans of Horror, Science Fiction and comic book stuff and beginning immediately on this date, the second season will be available for streaming on the Netflix service. Here’s the official season two poster which I’ve followed by the premise and some casting. Are you excited?

The nearby Hawkins National Laboratory ostensibly performs scientific research for the United States Department of Energy, but secretly does experiments into the paranormal and supernatural, including those that involve human test subjects. These start to affect the unknowing residents of Hawkins in calamitous ways.

Netflix Spotlights “Stranger Things” Season 2 “Homage” Posters

I guess it was about a month ago that I showcased some character posters for the second season of the Netflix Original Series “Stranger Things”. They were cool and showcased some new additions to the cast and here we are once again with a new batch of visuals. This time around, Netflix has given us posters that are done in honor of some classic Horror and Science Fiction movies of the past. I really liked these and think that you will as well. They follow the show premise and I’ll close up with some additional editorial thoughts.

Check Out Netflix’s “Stranger Things” Season 2 Character Posters

Back in July, I shared the “Thriller” trailer for the second season of the Netflix Original Series “Stranger Things”. It premiered during the Comic Con International: San Diego event and if you missed it just catch up courtesy of THIS LINK. When I shared the trailer, I admitted that I was asleep when the buzz began about this show and despite my desire to binge watch it I just haven’t managed to find the time. Anyway, so the other day a whole bunch of character posters were unveiled and since this is something that I love to share with the readership, I have included them right after the show premise. Take a gander. I’ll close up with some additional editorial thoughts.
