MILK & CHEESE: DAIRY PRODUCTS GONE BAD HC!
"A carton of hate. A wedge of spite. A comic book of idiotic genius. The Eisner Award-winning dairy duo returns in this deluxe hardcover collecting every single stupid Milk and Cheese comic ever made from 1989 to 2010, along with a sh*t-ton of supplemental awesomeness. This has everything you need! Don't judge it-love it! Or else! " Also available...
GO THE F**K TO SLEEP HC!
"A bedtime book for parents who live in the real world. A few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don't always send a toddler sailing off to dreamland.

Go The F**k To Sleep is a perfect gift for parents new, old, or expectant. "

'TIS THE SEASON!

We here at BENT WOOKEE COMIX know how hard it is this time of year to find your favorite people in your life that perfect gift, so we've decided to help you out with a few suggestions!

* First issues are a great way to get people started collecting! And now with the DC relaunch and several other Marvel books releasing #1 issues, this is the perfect time to pick up something that may end up being a collector's item!

* Hardcovers and Graphic Novels are excellent gifts to give! You can give someone their favorite series collected all in one book or something you know they would love but haven't tried!

* 50 Cent comics are great stocking stuffers! You can pick out a ton of cool stuff as samplers (and they're cheap, too)!

* Action Figures and Collectibles are always great gifts to add something to some one's collection!

* Still not sure what to get for your that funny book fan? Like anyone serious about collecting, supplies are always in short supply. Pick up bags, boards, and boxes to make sure their investment stays mint!

* And if you're still at a loss being confused by all the pretty colors, just pick up a BENT WOOKEE COMIX GIFT CERTIFICATE and let them get what they really want!

We'll be posting some other cool items available and in stock soon, but if there is something else you're looking for you can still stop in THIS WEEK while it's still time to reorder before the holiday! It's in your power to make this the best Christmas Ever, so don't wait!

FCBD 2011 PICS

Better late than never! Here's some pics from Free Comic Book Day 2011 at Bent Wookee Comix!

Life-size Jawa!!
Skaar's sword! So of course it had to be sculpted in proportion for Hulk's son. Fortunately it didn't fall over and crush anyone.











This picture makes me feel short(er).







This was not a scene from an S&M film, but the rigging for Luke's Whiplash costume. Ya know, when I read that it doesn't sound much better...


...is Spidey my new daddy? After finally finding someone worthy enough to lift Mjolner... Luke ripped it from his hands!










...but as you can see Holly and Luke feel really bad about it.





Seriously, I wasn't drinking when I took this pic! The Jawa's eyes did some crazy voodoo!




Thanks again to everyone for making this a GREAT FCBD!! Make sure to keep coming back for great deals on cool stuff all year long! Sign up to have your favorite comics held back for you every month with our free subscription service! And if you liked Luke Miller's work, he is now taking orders for your own customized sculptures!
