This is the perfect jumping-on point for new readers who can't wait to see the Green Lantern major motion picture from Warner Bros.! Discover how and why Hal received the power ring that changed his life forever with this reprinting of Green Lantern #30, a pivotal chapter of the Green Lantern: Secret Origin graphic novel by Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis.

 As we promised earlier,  here's another exciting, never-reprinted adventure featuring cowboys and aliens from Space Western Comics #40.

Don't worry, owlhoot.
There's lots more space-spanning, six-shooting action to come, so keep us bookmarked!

Design of the Week--Little Red Riding Hood

Each week, we post a limited-edition design, to be sold for exactly 7 days, then replaced with another!
This week...with a new, mature-oriented version of Little Red Riding Hood coming out...

...we thought it might be nice to see a retro, wholesome classic image of the child who outwits the hungry predator.
A vintage illustration suitable for all ages, and emblazoned on a slew of goodies including kidswear, womenswear, mugs, iPhone cases, etc.
Why not go "Secret Chic" and wear it to the theatre?
Better order NOW, before the Big Bad Wolf gobbles them all up!
