Eat, and Love Yourself

Written and Illustrated by Sweeny Boo
Publisher: Boom! Box, 2020

Twenty-seven year oldMindy is struggling- with her job, with her relationships, and with her own self-worth. But when a chocolate bar she buys on a whim gives her a chance to revisit her past, Mindy sees a chance to confront her regrets, make peace with difficult memories, and finally get a new start. Life is rarely that simple, though, and she soon realizes simply accepting the past is not enough. If she truly wants to find happiness, she must also embrace her future.

Writer and artist Sweeny Boo, known previously for Love is Love, strikes another skillful balance between realism and emotion. Poignantly written and dynamically illustrated, Eat, and Love Yourself is relatable to anyone who has struggled with self-acceptance and positivity. A great gift for anyone going through a rough time, or for when you just need a reminder to “love yourself!”

Fire Power Vol 1: Prelude

Writer: Robert Kirkman
Artist: Chris Samnee
Publisher: Image, 2020

Fire Power follows the story of Owen Johnson as he travels through
China in pursuit of the truth about the identity of his birth parents. A long
and grueling search leads him to the mountaintop sanctuary of the Temple of the
Flaming Fist. There Owen, alongside his fellow students, begins to study under
Master Wei Lun to reclaim the lost art of throwing fire. But there are secrets
even more precious than the ability to wield flames safeguarded within the
walls of the Temple of the Flaming fist, and Owen will be forced to reckon with
his family’s past if he is to preserve his future.

Whether you’re new to comics or a longtime fan of Robert Kirkman’s work, Fire
Power has something for everyone! Action packed, funny, and self-aware,
Kirkman’s latest series is the perfect summer reading companion and a great
primer for the release of the first issue of the Fire Power comic, on
August 5th. If you enjoy the graphic novel, make sure to add the series to your
subscription list!

Not Free Comic Book Day

FCBD Soon

Today was supposed to be Free Comic Book Day. Nature had other plans, but Free Comic Book Day will still happen at some point in the future, and we hope you’re still looking forward to it as much as we are!

Although the world we now live in is different from what we were used to, a “new normal” will, inevitably, arise. We look forward to building the “new normal” with you once we can fully reopen! (Looks like June at the earliest.) In the meantime, check out the webshop Graphic Novels (Marvel and Boom are close to being good) and Funko POPs sections, please! (I’m working diligently on Back Issues.) 

Sometime Monday (5/04/20) afternoon, we’ll be installing our new “Pullbox” utility to help you have more direct access to your subscriptions and orders. More details once we’re more familiar with the system.

Until next time, stay safe and healthy, be kind to each other, and read more comics!

“New” New Website

 

Many comic book publishers are doing everything they can think of to keep this hobby alive! Diamond Comic Distributors have pressed a giant “PAUSE” button on the shipping of new comics for the foreseeable future. We will, of course, keep you apprised!

 

With all of the craziness of the last several weeks, I’ve been working to get a new e-commerce website up and running. ComicHub seemed like a good choice because of the Subscription and Pre-Order functionality. Unfortunately, everything else was a horrible fit for me. I had to scrap 60 hours of work and have moved back to something I can handle better, hopefully! There are quite a few items in the shop (shop.twilightcomics.com), but not many pictures, yet. We also continue to list more and more on eBay (eBay.com/str/twilightcomics).

 

Please check out the listings, make suggestions, ask for pictures, and/or descriptions. Let us know what you want! We will be adding PreviewsWorld PullBox, as soon as we can, for all of the Subscription/Pre-Order stuff! If you see anything in the PreviewsWorld catalog you might want, we CAN still get the older stuff, and we could sure use the influx of income so I can keep up with payroll! (No word yet on either of the disaster loans for small businesses — PPP and EIDL.)
