Hello, all--

So, yeah… snow. It was a little too much to open today. As of right now the plan is to open up for regular hours tomorrow… we’ll confirm our status on our social media platforms as early as we know for sure what’s up.

LAST CALL! Subscribers: these debuting titles ship Wednesday, February 1st. If you want anything added to your sub list, please tell us by close of business on Monday 1/9, as our orders lock. We base the quantity we order on interest from subscribers, so the more info you can give us up front, the better.
PLANETOID: PRAXIS (Image) The sequel to the highly regarded lost-on-a-weird-planet sci-fi mini!
ALL NEW X-MEN #1.MU (Marvel) A Monsters Unleashed tie-in-- we’ll be ordering very lightly on tjhese, you MUST tell us if you want. Will not be pulled with regular titles.
BULLSEYE (Marvel) Part of marvel’s growing Daredevil umbrella of comics. This looks like it has potential.
DARTH MAUL (Marvel) He’s red! He’s mean! He’s got a double-pronged light saber!
PLANET OF THE APES/GREEN LANTERN (Boom!/DC) Yeah, I’m curious about this one.
STEVEN UNIVERSE ONGOING (Boom!) Judging on the perpetual sellouts of all the other stuff, I’m guessing this’ll do pretty well.

Hello, all--

A last minute reminder-- we’re OPEN all weekend, regular business hours. That means Rawn will have to climb out of his swimming pool filled with Jell-o shots he passed out in, find his tuxedo pants (they’re in a tree 4 houses down), drink a gallon of Red Bull and be here to sell comics at noon tomorrow like any other Sunday. Let’s honor his commitment by partying on NYE as responsibly as he does!

BEST OF 2016, PART ONE: It was so hard to narrow my list down to 10, for comics this year it’s going to be TOP 15. This was just about the best year creatively for comics in a decade or more, and a lot of the credit there can go to Tom King & Rick Remender. I hope 2017 keeps the charge going!

SAGA #41! There was some confusion about what happened with this issue last week, so here’s the scoop: the cover was printed too darkly, so Image is sending out replacement copies this week. If you haven’t gotten one by Tuesday, you’ll get the corrected edition. If you’d like to swap out the darker cover for the correct one, you’re welcome to do that as well!
