Happy Thanksgiving, Comic Shop Friends! We’ll be closed on Thursday for Thanksgiving. This is my second favorite holiday because I love a day of feasting and watching the MST3K Turkey Day Marathon.
Our Black Friday weekend sale is this weekend! Friday the 25th through Sunday the 27th, we’re doing 50% off all back issues, 20% off statues and action figures, and 10% off everything else! And the foyer will be filled with Marvel and DC $1.00 stock!
Also, on Sunday the 27th, Ben will be set up at Genghis Con from 12 pm to 5 pm! Stop by to check out a bunch of local artists and creators!
This year’s Holiday Art Show theme is Spider-Verse! We have the sign-up sheet and blank covers out for you to pick up now, and the art is due back by Sunday, December 11th. The art will be on display Wednesday, December 14th, through Saturday, December 17th, and winners will be pulled at the Holiday Party on the 17th. Raffle tickets can be purchased for $1 a ticket or six tickets for $5, benefiting the Cleveland Food Bank.
I also wanted to give everyone another reminder that we are able to text you when your special or standing orders are in. This is the fastest way to be notified, so if you’d like to switch over to text notifications, just let us know!
It’s not a huge week this week, but we have new action figures and trades on the table to start off your holiday shopping, and the Local Comic Shop Day variants are here!
Doctor Strange: Fall Sunrise #1 from writer/artist Tradd Moore is like a psychedelic fever dream. Doctor Strange awakes in a world that is not his, surrounded by danger and deadly horrors. How else to describe this? Just check it out and let it wash over you. I’ll have to read it again to really take in the details.
Marvel has a new ongoing Star Wars: Yoda series written by Cavan Scott with art by Nico Leon. In the swamps of Dagobah, Yoda is all but forgotten and living in exile, but when he hears a familiar voice, he must revisit the lessons he’s given in the past. This is the start of the first of three story arcs, covering the days of the High Republic to the Clone Wars, and follows Yoda as he responds to a plea for help received by the Jedi Council.
The Star Wars: Revelations one-shot is also out this week, written by Marc Guggenheim and featuring a team of artists: Salvador Larroca, Pere Perez, Emma Kubert, Wayne Faucher, Justin Mason, and Paul Fry. Amid Hidden Empire, Lady Qi’ra and the Crimson Dawn crime syndicate plot to destroy the Sith and seize power from the Empire. Witness the next step in the legacy of Star Wars.
It’s Damian Wayne vs. The Darkness in the Dark Crisis: Dark Army one-shot written by Mark Waid, Delilah S. Dawson, and Dennis Culver, with art by Freddie E. Williams II, and Jack Herbert. Damian Wayne thinks he has an answer as to why Pariah is able to control the most dangerous cosmic villains of the Multiverse. He builds a team, including Red Canary and Dr. Light, to stop them. This Dark Crisis tie-in has direct connections to the present and future of the DCU, and continues in Dark Crisis: War Zone and issue #7 of Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths.

Once Upon a Time at the End of the World #1 is an epic 30-page story set in a post-apocalyptic, garbage-filled world ravaged by environmental catastrophe. Maceo is hidden away in a trap-filled tower. Mezzy is surviving out on the water. They meet, and their lives will not be the same. This trilogy, created by Jason Aaron with three unique artistic partners, first being Alexandre Tefenkgi, is a tale of the end of the world that is both brutal and whimsical.
