Hello, all--

We're coming up on that time of year... that's right, it's 'high school graduation ceremonies at VCU's Siegel Center' season. Trust me, I'm at least as excited about it as you are. There are some silver linings to be had this year, and I wanted to go over some bullet points about the whole ordeal in case you're newer here or got a lobotomy to forget:
*JUNE 5th through JUNE 16th. Those are the dates.Generally there are graduations around 10am, 3pm and 7pm.
*Some good news: There are NO GRADUATIONS happening on SATURDAY, JUNE 9th and SUNDAY, JUNE 10th. Come on down!
*I will be giving daily updates on our facebook page and instagram re: the schedule. You can also call or email us before you come and we'll give you the skinny.
*On days with graduations, we're going to stay open until 8PM to give you guys some extra time to get here.
*USE ALTERNATE STREETS! This is important. Broad St will be very congested a half hour before and after the ceremonies. Pretty okay around that. If you're coming from the East, use Main, Leigh or Clay. From the West: Monument/Franklin or Grace St. And you might have to park a block further away.

We appreciate you working with us through this... we still very much need your business, this is the toughest period of the year for us.

LAST CALL! Here are the titles debuting in a few weeks, for which our orders lock on Monday. Telling us NOW if you want something is the best way to guarantee you'll get it. No guarantees after that, we'll do our best. 
BEDTIME GAMES (Dark Horse, Mini, $3.99) A group of high school seniors unwittingly release an ancient evil as they explore their school's mysterious past. Looks promising!
 
MODERN FANTASY (Dark Horse, Ongoing, $3.99) I think the cover says it all-- if you like the looks of that you'll be into this. 
BATMAN PRELUDE TO THE WEDDING: HARLEY QUINN & JOKER (DC, One-shot, $3.99) I think this is the last one of these? It'll be a good one.
TEEN TITANS SPECIAL (DC, One shot, $4.99) This kickstarts the next chapter in the Teen Titans story, looks like Damian's not looking to be beholden to his dad any more...
JOE HILL'S THE CAPE: FALLEN (IDW, Mini, $3.99) Returning to the hit miniseries from several years ago! 
LOWLIFES (IDW, Ongoing?, $3.99) Seedy underbelly of LA crime/noir. Looks very good. 
THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN: THE TEMPEST (IDW, Mini, $4.99) Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill are getting the band back together! 
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (Marvel, Ongoing, $5.99) A new era dawns! The big news is that Ryan Ottley of 'Invincible' fame, one of the best action artists in comics, is the new art guy! Nick Spencer is def channeling his best work (Superior Foes of Spider-Man, The Fix) for his gig as writer. Can't wait!
MULTIPLE MAN (Marvel, Mini, $3.99) Great character, great costume, great cover. Glad he's back! 
SENTRY (Marvel, Ongoing, $3.99) Jeff Lemire is back writing at Marvel, with great up-and-comer Kim Jacinto on art! Very interested to see from what angle they'll approach this controversial character.
WAKANDA FOREVER (Marvel, Mini, $3.99) This one's a no-brainer... a team-up book featuring Okoyo, Ayo and Aneka from Black Panther teaming up with other Marvel characters! Up first is Spidey! 
X-MEN GRAND DESIGN: SECOND GENESIS (Marvel, Mini, $5.99) If you're late to the party on Ed Piskor's streamlined retelling of the X-Men Origin, worry not! We have plenty of the early stuff, and here's the second chunk!
OH S#!T! IT'S KIM AND KIM! (Black Mask, Ongoing, $3.99) Now ongoing! Written by former Richmonder Magdalene Visaggio. 
CHARLIE'S ANGELS (D.E., Mini, $3.99) We'll be ordering very tightly on this one, no idea the interest level. Tell us if you want it!
VAMPIRELLA: ROSES FOR THE DEAD (D.E., Mini, $3.99) Drawn by the well-regarded Joseph Michael Linsner!
SHADOW ROADS (Oni, Ongoing, $3.99) A sort-of sequel to THE SIXTH GUN! It's set in that world, it its aftermath. 
MIKE HAMMER (Titan, Mini, $3.99) Adapted from an original Mickey Spillane story by Max Allan Collins, one of the all-time greats of comic book noir!
