Wednesday October 25th is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Day, this Saturday the 28th is Halloween ComicFest, and we’ve got Facebook sending out a photographer to document a new comic book day!
Here’s the featured new releases coming out this Wednesday, October 25th, 2017.
As some of you may know, we had the honor of being chosen to be a part of Facebook’s Small Business Council, an honor that only 40 businesses out of 70 million on Facebook have received!
Well this Wednesday we’re asking for your help to be extra awesome, as Facebook is sending out a photographer to document us and a new comic book day at the shop. They’ll be setting up shop between noon and 5pm, and If you stop in during that time period expect to sign a release form on your way out if you don’t mind being in some of the photo’s. This is a huge opportunity for us so please think about scheduling your visit to the shop during this time period. Make sure your demographic is represented in our shop during this time period. (Whatever that may be, we love everyone.) The reality is that YOU (yes YOU) are what makes our shop successful, so come and be a part of this with us! Thank you thank you!
To give the day a little direction and another reason to stop in, IDW has declared it Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Day, so we’re just rolling with that.
Basically we have a free TMNT Sampler to give to everyone who stops in, recapping the last 5 years of the book, and helping you get into the series if you’re interested.
It’s also the release date for TMNT #75, as well as the TMNT Ultimate Collection Volume One, reprinting the classic first seven issues with annotations. We also restocked every single Turtles graphic novel available.
We’ll be having a raffle all day long with lots of TMNT prizes, the highlight of which is this original sketch cover by Kevin Eastman himself!
You’ll get a raffle slip with any purchase, and we’ll draw the winner at the end of the day. You need not be present. (So we’ve basically got you filling out all kinds of paperwork this Wednesday)
Did you realize the Turtles are based on classic archetypes that go way back in literature and still pop up repeatedly today? Leader – Wild Card – Tech – Party Guy.
Think about it. (Winston is Splinter.)
Yet another great reason to stop by this Wednesday is that we’ll have huge stacks of the second printings of those Batman Metal One-Shots you’ve been missing out on! These one shots include tricked out evil versions of Batman/Flash (Batman: The Red Death) Batman/Cyborg (Batman: The Murder Machine) Batman/Aquaman (Batman: The Drowned) Batman/Green Lantern (Batman: The Dawnbreaker) and Batman/Wonder Woman (Batman: The Merciless)
These one shots can be enjoyed individually or together, and you will enjoy them. The latest Metal offshoot begins in Flash #33 this week with “Bats Out Of Hell” part one! Barry Allen verse The Red Death!
Finally, we have to point you back to Halloween Comic Fest this Saturday, October 28th!
We’ve got 50 copies of a limited edition of Walking Dead #1 that were donated to us by Wizard World, as well as 150 copies we procured of a great Thor graphic novel to give away with the first sales that day, (You get to pick one or the other when you check out.)
