Daredevil #1 (2023) – September 13
Daredevil is born again in this rebooted comic series!
Our favorite “man without fear” is back in an all-new series, starting with the first issue coming out in early September. Industry superstars Saladin Ahmed and Aaron Kuder have teamed up to bring Matt Murdock back into the ring as the protector of Hell’s Kitchen. In addition to the comic’s release, a new TV series called “Daredevil: Born Again” will be releasing on Disney+ later in the year.
Recently, Daredevil was portrayed by Charlie Cox in the 2015 Daredevil series on Netflix. After the series ended in 2018, Marvel reacquired the screen rights to Daredevil and decided to debut the hero in Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021), officially integrating him into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Upcoming Cards Releases
TCG: Pokémon Scarlet and Violet: 151 – September 22
Collect the original 151 Pokémon discovered in Kanto in reimagined styles!
In 1998, Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Blue Version were released in the US. No one at Game Freak or Nintendo expected the game to take off, especially since they had released it for the Game Boy, which was nearing the end of its lifespan. To everyone’s surprise, Pokémon was a phenomenal success that turned into a massive franchise, including more video games, toys, an anime and, of course, trading cards.
The new Scarlet and Violet: 151 limited TCG set features the original 151 Pokémon originally introduced in Pokémon Red and Blue, all reimagined with new artwork and abilities. Everyone from Bulbasaur to Mew will be there, with some favorites such as Charizard, Venusaur, Blastoise and Mew getting ex releases. There are also new alternate art cards to collect.

Valak is back to haunt Irene and the audience in this ninth installment of the Conjuring series!
Four years after the ending of The Nun (2018), a priest is murdered on convent grounds. One by one, other members of the convent are tortured by an unknown evil. Sister Irene must come face-to-face with Valak, the demon nun, once again in this thrilling sequel within the Conjuring series.
There’s a lot to look forward to with this installment, including Taissa Farmiga, Jonas Bloquet and Bonnie Aarons reprising their roles from the first movie, stunning direction by Michael Chaves and a script written by the team of Ian Goldberg, Richard Naing and Akela Cooper, all veterans within the horror genre of film.
