Trying to figure out how to spend your hard-earned cash this week? You know you wait with baited breath for your Tuesday Best Buy visit and your Wednesday comic shop visit! Well, here’s a list of the good stuff coming out this week – don’t waste your money on anything else!
Well…stop playing Killzone 2 for five minutes, because there’s plenty of good stuff coming out this week!
Have a seat and let The Pault Keeper help you figure out…
I probably don’t need to tell you to buy a ticket to see Watchmen this week (preferably in IMAX), but there are plenty of Watchmen-related goodies coming to your local DVD/Music store this week also!
Watchmen: The Complete Motion Comic (Blu-Ray and DVD)
Pretty much exactly how it sounds. This fantastic series premiered online last summer, and is the full telling of the original Watchmen graphic novel, given a full voice cast, music, animation, and featuring the amazing original art! If you get pissed off because the movie changed a whole bunch of stuff from the book, this one’s for you! And it comes with a free ticket to see Watchmen in theaters! Purchase from our Amazon link below!
Watchmen Score & Soundtrack (CD)
Early word is that the score to the movie, by Tyler Bates, is excellent. And the soundtrack contains a new song from My Chemical Romance, and some great classic tracks! Purchase from our Amazon link below!
Wonder Woman Blu-Ray
A pretty darn great animated movie starring DC’s classic superhero! Check out my review for more info, and purchase using the Amazon link below!

Sonic and the Black Knight (Nintendo Wii)
Yes, that’s Sonic the Hedgehog with a sword. No, I’m not sure why he has one. Probably to kick some Black Knight @$$! This is a sequel to the Sonic and the Secret Rings Wii game that everyone loved from a couple of years ago. Fingers crossed that this is the great Sonic game we’ve all been hoping for!
