It’s the original run of “Captain Canuck” from 1975 to 1981!  Richard Comely, George Freeman and Claude St. Aubin’s work, including a full-colour issue #15, is presented along with a bunch of new, never-before-seen extras!

What event is big enough to bring together the 10th Doctor and Gabby, the 11th Doctor and Alice, and the 12th Doctor and Clara?  This one is!  The first of five weekly issues!

Sonic the Hedgehog #275 – Archie – $4.99

STK675717 Image

Of course you’ve been reading the “Worlds Unite” crossover story taking place in all the Archie Action books.  Part 11 (of 12) takes place in this issue.  Which happens to be issue #275.  This is likely the highest-numbered comic currently being printed by its one-and-only original publisher.  But just don’t buy it for the history.  Buy it cuz it’s damn good reading (and art)!

Here’s a look at things comic-related:

Attack on Titan TitanPlush – Great Eastern Entertainment – $19.99

STK679094 Image

Nothing more adorable than a chibi-esque plush representing the extermination of mankind!  You can choose from Armin, Eren, Levi, Mikasa, and the Colossal Titan (pictured above)!

Doctor Who: Weeping Angel Bookends – Underground Toys – $59.99

STK665730 Image

The upside to these Weeping Angle bookends is that they’re made of resin and look great!  The downside is you’ll be staring at your bookshelf to keep these ‘ladies’ ‘quantum-locked’!

The Walking Dead (Television Series) Michonne 1/4-Scale Statue – Gentle Giant Studios – $399.00

STK627948 Image

Okay, I don’t know what happened to Michonne in this week’s “Walking Dead” comic yet, but in case it’s something sinister, we can comfort ourselves with this 1/4-scale 18″ statue!  With real fabric costume and metal sword blade, this digitally-sculpted, hand-painted statue comes individually numbered and with a certificate of authenticity!

Finally, let’s check on Funko’s releases for the week!

Dorbz Guardians of the Galaxy Vinyl Figures – $9.00/ea
