Comic Book publishers are working hard to earn your business, and authors and artists are teaming up and reaching deep to create exciting new story lines!  Highly recommended titles are coming from all sides, including an amazing Red Sonja and Tarzan team up.  Eson Duul is an evil man. The mere mention of his name makes powerful quake with fear. He has no regard for life, including that of man. But he may finally have met his match when he finds himself up against Red Sonja and Tarzan!  Talented comic book creators Gail Simone (Birds of Prey, Red Sonja) and Walter Geovani (Red Sonja, Clean Room) reunite to bring us the crossover event featuring two of fiction’s greatest heroes side by side at last!  Lauderdale Comics believes that this title will be a top-notch effort, and we encourage you to pre-order and subscribe.

In the world of collectible figurines, can you believe that Tim Burton’s A Nightmare Before Christmas is 25 years old?  The nightmare continues! With Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas still capturing hearts around the world 25 years after its release, Diamond Select Toys has announced Series 5 of its acclaimed NBX action figure line. Three new two-packs – Easter Bunny with Igor, Wolfman with Melting Man and Vampire Jack with Batboy – each come with a work table for building their horrible toys! Each pair comes packaged in the famous Select action figure packaging, ready for display with side-panel artwork for shelf reference.  These are sculpted by Dave Cortes, and we know they will be incredibly high quality and detail.
