Every summer, we look forward to a happy comic book buyback day. It's great to know that you can pick up an issue of your favorite superhero comic on the first day of every summer. Whether you're a lifelong fan or just looking at new titles, it's important to make the most of this opportunity to spread the love. Today, we're going to tell you about some of the best places to go for a comic book buyback sale.
Marvel Comics: Marvel Comics has been one of the most successful comic book series ever in the past, so you'll want to check out what's new in this summer's releases. If you haven't read any of the main series, you'll find dozens of books from the popular titles that you can purchase in advance and save money on future purchases. Marvel's newest launches this fall will include the new movies Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk, as well as the upcoming Civil War movie starring Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson. Happy Comic Buyback Day!
DC Comics: For DC Comics fans, there is no better way to get a jump into the comics than to pick up a backup of Green Lantern and Green Arrow issues that you can simply browse through online. This means that you'll have even more comics to read in the months to come! If you love both characters, you may want to start collecting the entire Justice League line of comic books as well. DC's most recent event, Dark Knight, is sure to be a huge hit this June. Between the highly anticipated movie and the positive buzz around the comics, you've got everything you need to meet nick sax's delightful little team.
DC has a few different strategies for keeping their comic books in print. One is publishing digital versions of the monthly books, which are perfect for smart phones and tablets. For those who are more interested in a physical copy, they usually have two choice. Either wait for the second printing to hit store shelves or grab a hold of some of the backup graphic novels that you can find at any book store or on specific online retailers. You should always check to see if the current storyline has been finished before grabbing a copy, especially if it hasn't been a while since your last issue.
Marvel: A popular choice for many people who like comics and like to talk about them with others, Marvel has a number of different formats for celebrating their comic books, including a free convertershow. This special event is a special edition of the company's comic books, showcasing all of the latest issues. It is always free to enter, and the first 100 guests to bring a comic book can get a free signing event, featuring one of the main characters from the cover of the issue. If you've never been to this kind of show, it's an amazing opportunity to meet the creative team behind some of your favorite storylines, and it gives you a rare chance to see what goes into making a Marvel comic book issue.
DC Entertainment: Another huge event in the comic book world is DC Entertainment's Free Comic Book Day. Every year, DC holds a special free event for fans to show their love of their comics and get free comics. The events run monthly, and you will receive a large assortment of issues in whatever specific genre you choose. This is a great chance to get an in depth look at the behind the scenes action of some of your favorite characters, and to get introduced to some of the new faces that are starting to become household names. As with the Marvel event, this is a free event and runs on a different schedule every month, so you will need to make sure you show up for this one on the exact date it falls.
DC Universe: The event known as the New York Comicon is also taking place during the same time as the free convertershow. This is another chance to get an in depth look at the comic book world. This is a chance to meet the latest talent that is shaping up in the comics industry, and it gives you an opportunity to learn about some of the lesser known characters that are featured in the big comic books. You can meet many of your favorite creators, and get some exclusive information on upcoming projects that they are planning. This is definitely a great place to go if you enjoy hearing about the latest in the DC Universe, and just want to learn more about what is happening.
One Happy Comic You Day will not be complete without the annual fathom event. For those who have never heard of it, fathom is the common name for the yearly publisher's meeting that takes place at the end of September. It features nearly every comic creator you know, and provides you with an opportunity to go on a "gathering" where you get the chance to learn about where the industry is going. It is truly an amazing event that I would recommend anyone give a shot at.
