Publisher: Marvel
This June, the most dangerous corner of Battleworld is born in WEIRDWORLD #1 — a brand new entry in the Secret Wars! Today, Marvel is pleased to present your new look at the exciting first issue from blockbuster writer Jason Aaron (“Star Wars,” “Thor”) and critically acclaimed artist Mike Del Mundo (“All-New X-Men,” “Elektra”). Venture deep into the strangest domain of them all as a lone warrior embarks on a savage quest. It is a world of swords, sorcery and all things bizarre. A land of gods and monster. Where perverted science and arcane magic run rampant. It is Weirdworld, the land where lost things go. Among its twisted and crazed landscapes walks Arkon, the barbarian king. With a sword in one hand and a battle bolt in the other, he ventures through Weirdworld in a desperate attempt to get back home. Yet each bend in the road brings new horrors, new monsters, new awful ways to meet your end. If Arkon is to find his way back to his homeland, he must first survive the Secret Wars! But can he? A lost man in a lost world, Arkon’s quest begins this June in WEIRDWORLD #1!

    I thoroughly appreciate you pointing out that if a girl is uncomfortable in a comic/game shop that half of the customers are isolated. There is a shop about an hour from me that has a great selection but good lord is it awkward for me to walk in there. One more thing to add to having a welcoming store is clean friggen bathrooms. I swear sometimes comic/game shops have bathrooms that look like they haven’t been cleaned in years.
