Welcome to another installment of Monday Telemetry, a weekly blog from The Launchpad that covers some of the more interesting releases or events that are coming to the store this week.
ITEM! Siege continues with Siege #3 and Siege Embedded #3. Specifics on the March Siege Deal will follow in another blog post. FYI, numerous Siege-related title have been delayed by two weeks, probably to keep the whole schedule in alignment.
ITEM! Dungeon & Dragons Encounters starts this week on Wednesday after the shop closes. D&D Encounters is a weekly one-encounter session that will span a 12-week Spring season.
ITEM! The D&D Player's Handbook 3 is out this Tuesday. Just in time for D&D Game Day this Saturday, the 20th. We'll be running a short D&D adventure set in the Far Realms to commemorate the release of the PHB3 after the shop closes.
Witness the birth of a brand new species of vampire in this new ongoing series that begins with five extra-sized issues featuring back-to-back stories by exciting new writer Scott Snyder and the master of horror himself, Stephen King! When notorious outlaw Skinner Sweet is attacked by an old enemy (who happens to be a member of the undead), the first American vampire is born... a vampire powered by the sun, stronger, fiercer, and meaner than anything that came before. Plus... Pearl Jones is a struggling young actress in 1920s Los Angeles. But when her big break brings her face-to-face with an ancient evil, her Hollywood dream quickly turns into a brutal, shocking nightmare.
Issue #1 is highly recommended. This series has been a pleasant surprise!
Doctor Doom's latest power play has the Marvel Universe up in arms. Wakanda has been conquered and Storm faces execution in the next 48 hours -- unless the X-Men, the Fantastic Four and the two Black Panthers can rally to the rescue! With Doom only minutes away from stealing enough Vibranium to help him conquer the world, T'Challa faces the most dreadful decision possible: let Doom win...or let Storm die!
Desert survival is hard, even without a cannibal cult in the mix. Five people will find that out as they embark on the most terrifying journey of their young lives...only none of them are what they seem--and neither is anything else!-- in this gut-wrenching horror miniseries.
The $2.99 rollback continues! We're knocking a dollar off this ish!
X-23 has spent her short life being used by those in power, from the military to the X-Men. But when she is forced to confront a being who can control her life with nothing but a thought, will X-23 finally learn how to fight -- not for others, but herself? Guest-starring NYX!
