    June Product Review Contest Winners Announced

    FF #8 review at TFAW.comYou guys have once again out done yourselves by sending in so many wonderful product reviews to choose from last month, it was nigh impossible to pick just three of you for this month’s picks. However, after reading through the hundreds and hundreds of great reviews, we have hand picked three of our favorites as part of our monthly Product Review Contest. Below, you’ll find out who won from June’s Product Reviews. $25 TFAW gift certificates are on the way to the folks who posted them.

    Paco from Tucson, AZ stopped by with his five star review of Matt Fraction and Mike Allred’s FF #8 from Marvel Comics:

    To quote text from a word balloon on page four of issue #8: “Wow. Never a dull moment with those guys.” — Those guys, of course, being Antman, Medusa, She-Hulk and Ms. Thing. And there IS never a dull moment in this fun and subtly 1970s-infused comic book that manages to sneak in a serious blast from the distant pop culture past with the line, Thing rings, do your thing! Fun times.

    Superior Spider-Man #31 review at TFAW.comOur second winner is Ash from Houston, TX. He had this to say about the Wicked & Divine #1:

    I first picked out this book because the cover looked interesting, but I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. It definitely opens the door for some interesting stories to be told, and although the story in this issue is a bit predictable, the way the writers tell it makes me excited for future issues.

    My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic #17 review at TFAW.comLast but not least, Kevin from Golden, CO wrote a review for Strain – The Fall Part 1 Volume 3 TPB that we had to share:

    Great item excited for the next one. The rest of the story is also awesome. It also follows the books pretty well. I read the books before I got the graphic novels and I enjoyed them very much. Vol. 3 is just as good as Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. If you have these you must get Vol. 3. The color, drawings, and lettering is very good. Also, the story moves along at a great pace. Very well worth having. Get it and enjoy!

    February Product Review Contest Winners Announced

    Hawkeye #14 review at TFAW.comSweet Christmas! You guys have once again out done yourselves by sending in so many wonderful product reviews to choose from last month, it was nigh impossible to pick just three of you for this month’s picks. However, after reading through the hundreds and hundreds of great reviews, we have hand picked three of our favorites as part of our monthly Product Review Contest. Below, you’ll find out who won from February’s Product Reviews. $25 TFAW gift certificates are on the way to the folks who posted them.

    Marina from Quail Valley, Ca stopped by with her five star review of Hawkeye #14:

    Hawkeye #14 follows the ongoing pattern with Fraction’s run, the writing is witty and expressive in a way suitable to the character. In this issue, we follow what happens to Kate in California- and we see what it really means to be a super hero sleuth. The art and writing correspond perfectly to her viewpoint and, to say without spoilers, it was an amazing issue overall.

    Elfquest: The Final Quest #1 review at TFAW.comOur second winner is Candice from Carmi, IL. She had this to say about the Elfquest: The Final Quest #1:

    Been a fan since I was 13 yrs and it a very exceptional book in my opinion. It has a little bit of everything. I love to escape into the world of Elfquest; a vacation from the real world if you will. Can’t wait to see what happens next!

    Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi Vol. 1 TPB - Force Storm review at TFAW.comLast but not least, Chris from Campbellford, ON wrote a review for the for Dark Horse Comics’ Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi Vol. 1 TPB – Force Storm that we had to share:

    This graphic novel captivates its reader with its awesome art work and in depth descriptions of emotions and scenes. I am very happy to have bought this book and will continue to follow the series with great intent. If you have not read this series but are a star wars fan old or new it will not let you down highly suggest this!

    April Product Review Contest Winners Announced

    Zero Killer Nick and Dent TPB review at TFAW.comWe get hundreds of really great product reviews each month, and it’s our privilege to pore through them and pick three winners as part of our monthly Product Review Contest. Below, you’ll see who won from April’s Product Reviews. We’ll be sending $25 gift certificates to the people who posted them.

    Joe from Saint James, NY is the first of this month’s winners. Here’s his review of the Zero Killer N&D TPB:

    I picked this TPB up as a DOD, because the story sounded intriguing. I was not disappointed, the book has extra bonus documentation between chapters explaining more about the world the protagonist, Zero, lives in. An alternate reality to modern day NY, where atomic fallout and wars have taken their toll on the country and world in general. I put the book down once and read it in about 2 hours ’cause i found it that interesting. For a nick & dent deal of the day or for a low price i would say pick it up and add it to your collection. It’s worth a read.

    MIB 3 Agent G Bishoujo Statue review at TFAW.comOur second winner is David from Toronto, ON. David had this to say about the MIB 3 Agent G Bishoujo Statue:

    Beautifully designed sculpt and design. Sexy and alluring. The best part: storage under the “sidewalk” for the extra pieces she comes with (Different right arm with weapon and her black sunglasses). Too many statues do not have this feature in the base.

    Hawkeye TPB My Life As Weapon Vol. 01  review at TFAW.comLast but not least, there’s Lauren, from North Little Rock, AR, who’s review for Hawkeye My Life As Weapon Vol. 1 TPB really spoke to us.

    This book is very entertaining. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about Clint Barton/Hawkeye. The man cannot seem to stay out of trouble!

    Thanks so much to everyone who wrote reviews last month. You’re helping people decide what to get (or what to avoid) next.

    You’re Invited to the FF’s Pool Party

    FF cools down in June with a good old fashined pool party!I don’t know about you, but I’m in the mood for a funny book that’s actually — well, fun. Don’t get me wrong, books like Batman, Age of Ultron, Mind MGMT, Revival, and Aquaman are all amazing books that I look forward to reading each month (or each week with Ultron), but every once in awhile, I’m looking for a fun romp that won’t tax me emotionally. That’s why Matt Fraction’s FF is so great.

    One look at the Mike Allred’s covers, and you get a feel of what this series is. FF #9 is about a pool party — not really the high-stakes action and adventure of the newest issue of Justice League or Avengers, wouldn’t you say?

    You’d think that a team consisting of C- and D-list characters wouldn’t hold your attention for more than a few issues, but Fraction writes a hell of a comic here, and Allred’s unique artistic style complements the story really well.

    We want you to check out this Marvel NOW! title, so we’re offering FF #9 at 35% off the cover price when you pre-order your copy by April 30 as part of this month’s Featured Discounts promotion. We think you’ll dig this book even if you haven’t been reading along. Isn’t it about time you took a break from the doom and gloom and cooled down with a good old-fashioned pool party?

    PRE-ORDER YOUR COPY OF FF #9 FOR $1.94 THRU 4/30

    SAVE BIG ON ALL THIS MONTH’S FEATURED DISCOUNTS

    Have you been reading FF? How do you think of Fraction’s run compares to Hickman’s? Post your comments below.
