Did you know we'll be open completely regular hours over this last weekend of 2017? Yep, we're too old to party too hard, so we'll be here today (Saturday) 10-7, Sunday 12-6 and 10-7. I bet there's a pretty good chance we've got something here you'd like to check out, come on by!
RESTAURANT INDUSTRY DAY! We're going to start something up on Monday 1/1/18, a shout out to the restaurant industry folks out there-- the bartenders, the cooks, the hosts, the servers-- you guys work your butts off day in and day out, in a largely thankless way. Both my daughters and my special ladyfriend work in the industry, so I hear on a daily basis the highs and lows. And I remember during the bike race that shut the city down a couple years ago, it was the restaurant industry folk who made it a point to get in here and spend money when very few people were willing to leave the house, even though they weren't making any money either. Anyway, to the point: from now on, every here at Velocity will be for you-- you get an extra discount on anything purchased as a THANK YOU for taking such good care of us whenever we go out!
As it's the end of the year, and some of you have asked, here's my list for TOP TEN COMICS of 2017-- I typically only include stuff that's at least 4 issues deep, so we can have a good sense of how things are shaping up. Which is why MAESTROS and DOOMSDAY CLOCK are not up for consideration. But these comics rocked my socks off this year:
10. Invincible (Robert Kirkman & Ryan Ottley, Image Comics)
9. Midnighter & Apollo (Steve Orlando & Aco, DC Comics)
8. Paper Girls (Brian K. Vaughan & Cliff Chiang, Image Comics)
7. Detective Comics (James Tynion IV & various, DC Comics)
6. Generation Gone (Ales Kot & Andre Araujo, Image Comics)
5. Deathstroke (Christopher Priest & various, DC Comics)
4. Black Hammer (Jeff Lemire, Dean Ormston & David Rubin, Dark Horse)
3. Batman (Tom King & various, DC Comics)
2. Kill or Be Killed (Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips, Image Comics)
1. Mister Miracle (Tom King & Mitch Gerads, DC Comics)
LAST CALL! Our orders lock on these books , and they ship out in a couple weeks. The sooner you tell me you want them, the better we do ordering enough for everyone. Don't miss out!
VINEGAR TEETH (Dark Horse) Visionary comic artist Troy Nixey's new horror/crime/humor mash-up!
GEAR OF WAR: THE RISE OF RAAM (IDW) Video game people! Tell us if you want it, we'll be ordering tightly.
