Hello, all…

Did you know today, Saturday 11/18 is LOCAL COMIC SHOP DAY! It’s true! This is a national initiative to celebrate the best places to buy funnybooks, from the people who (ideally) live and breathe this stuff and love getting good reading material into your hands. To commemorate, we have limited quantities of highly collectible variant covers for some great books! Maestros, Captain America and Rick & Morty are but a few of them! Come on by if’n you’ve got the time!

DOOMSDAY CLOCK is coming… and we’re having a MIDNIGHT RELEASE PARTY so you can get it as quickly as possible! We’ll be opening up for just an hour on Tuesday night 11/21 11:30 to 12:30! We’ll have 4 different covers available, as well as lithographs and pins! What a party!

Next Saturday. 11/25 is SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY! And we’re having our GIGANTIC TWICE YEARLY SALE! Here’s what we’re doing:
*from 10-12 it’s the EARLY BIRD sale-- 30% off EVERYTHING!
*for the rest of the day it’ll be 25% off everything.
*There’ll be extra sale bins throughout the shop with deeper discounts!

LAST CALL! Here they are, subscribers: the books set to debut in a couple weeks, for which our orders lock Mondaynight. If you could tell us before that what you’d like to add, that’d help us order the correct amount and ensure everyone that wants copies can get them.

GIANTS (Dark Horse) It’s always nice to see some newcomers throwing down and trying to make cool comics. This one’s about giant monsters!

RUMBLE (Image) Weird gods and weirder monsters roam (and fight in) the modern world in this returning series… this time with A-list artist DAVID RUBIN!

TALES OF SUSPENSE #100 (Marvel) Marvel brings back the ol’  title as a vessel for Winter Soldier and Hawkeye to track down the considered-dead-by-most Black Widow! Note: this only runs for 5 issues.

MONSTRO MECHANICA (Aftershock) A new series starring Leonardo Da Vinci, his lady apprentice, and their wooden robot.

JUDAS (Boom!) An exploration of the biblical character in the vein of Preacher and The Goddamned. With stunning art by Jakub Rebelka!

UNDER (Titan) Another giant monster comic! This time, underneath our feet in the sewers! Ew!

Hello, all…

As I type this the city is under siege by a  brightly clad army of deranged speedsters whose idea of a good time is to project themselves through frigid tundra for the sake of personal glory. Nope, they’re not filming the Flash movie here, it’s just the marathon. I wish all the participants their fastest times ever, so we can reopen the streets of Richmond to its citizens.

In other news, I goofed! I thought TODAY was LOCAL COMIC SHOP DAY, but it’s actually next Saturday 11/18. Which is better for everyone since there’ll be nothing keeping you from coming (see above). We’ll have a bunch of LCSD exclusive books from a variety of publishers. They look sharp!

LAST CALL! Here they are, subscribers: the books set to debut in a couple weeks, for which our orders lock Monday night. If you could tell us before that what you’d like to add, that’d help us order the correct amount and ensure everyone that wants copies can get them.

BATMAN/TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES II (DC) You dug the last one so much, here’s more of that!
 
PARADISO (Image) This looks pretty beautiful, with a promising premise: Centuries after the Midnight Event changed the world forever, a man arrives to Paradiso City with a device powerful enough to change everything… AGAIN.
 
SLEEPLESS (Image) A new ongoing fantasy romance by Sarah Vaughn (Alex + Ada) and Leila del Duca (Shutter)!
 
WITCHBLADE (Image) New character, same weapon, probably new costume?
 
MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE (Marvel) One of Marvel’s most anticipated new series in years, by great creators Chip Zdarsky & Jim Cheung-- The Thing and Human Torch reunite to solve the mystery of the missing Richards family. Probably the lead-in to a new Fantastic Four comic!
 
JUPITER JET (Action Lab) The closest high concept pitch I can offer: if Squirrel Girl, instead of talking to squirrels, had the Rocketeer’s jetpack.
 
THE MIGHTY CRUSADERS (Archie) It’s time for Archie to dust off their superhero properties! This might be great, too much is unknown, but if you want it please tell us because we will be ordering conservatively.
 
KLAUS AND THE CRISIS OF XMASVILLE (Boom!) Grant Morrison’s take on ol’ Chris Cringle returns! What a beefcake!
 
ROCKO’S MODERN LIFE (Boom!) Is there a market for a comic if this beloved 90s cartoon property? You tell me!
 
BARBARELLA (D.E.) I picked the cover showcasing the interior artist, Kenan Yarar, so you can get an idea of what this’ll look like. But there’s like 30 covers. Because it’s Dynamite and that’s what they do. How can they afford that?
