It’s on! Black Friday week is here, a week of sales to help off set the in store traffic at any one time. 

From Tuesday November 24th to Sunday November 29th we’ll have:

  • 75,000 books in the foyer at $1.00 each! (50 cents each for 100 or more!) Marvel, DC and Small Press!
  • 50% off ALL Back Issues!
  • 20% off Statues and Action Figures!
  • 10% off Everything Else in the Shop! (yes everything)
  • Wednesday is Local Comic Shop Day so come in and show you support of your LCS! 

Come in and clean out your file! Pick up a copy of Spawn #312, which has hundreds of comic shop names built into the artwork, including ours! (Only $2.99!)

We’ll be closed on Thursday for Thanksgiving!

Friday is Black Friday, but it’s a whole week now so whatever!

Saturday is Small Business Saturday and a great day to visit any small business you’d like to see live through the pandemic!

Sunday will be the last day to dig through the $1 books for quite some time, so make the most of it. 

Please be extra aware of you surroundings in the shop, and give people some space while they’re looking through stuff. Masks are required, we have our occupany rating posted, so don’t be offended if a staff member checks you on anything, they’re just trying to keep themselves and you safe. (as well as making sure we’re open through the holiday season.) Everyone’s been doing great in our shop so far, so let’s keep it up!

This week’s stand out new releases include one that seems like it came out of nowhere and took the staff by storm, The Other History of the DC Universe #1.

Written by John Ridley, the screenwriter of 12 Years a Slave, “it examines the mythology of the DC Universe in this compelling miniseries that reframes iconic moments of DC history and charts a previously unexplored sociopolitical thread as seen through the prism of DC Super Heroes who come from traditionally disenfranchised groups.”

From a classic comic collector, it really examines key moments from DC history with a different perspective, almost like Kurt Busiek’s Marvels did in the 90’s. This issue follows Jefferson Pierce, as he becomes Black Lightning. Each issue can likely be read alone or as part of a whole. It’s prose and artwork but really masterfully done. Great work. 

For fun DC also has the Death Metal Multiverse Who Laughs, a one shot with a lighter look at the Dark Multiverse. 

Evil Superpets anyone?

This is also the week to pick up your FREE DC Nation Future Slate preview book!

In January and February all of DC’s series will take a jump into the Future, with a series of 23 new mini series. This book will give you the low down as well as a checklist that you can turn in to manage your file. (We know how we’re going to adjust some of the books in your file based on what you already get, but we’d love to hear from you too!)

This week also wraps of X of Swords with the XOS Destruction one shot. 

Honestly, I haven’t read it yet, as we keep selling out of chapters, but I look forward to adding it to my pile as people have really enjoyed it here. 

That’s it. Again Please consider shopping small this week. Each small business has it’s own culture and by choosing to spend your dollars there you are making an active choice to keep that culture alive. I’m not just talking about us, I’m talking about any place you enjoy standing in. Thanks everyone! Stay safe this holiday!

We like to live in the moment but it’s time to start planning for “Black Friday Week” from Tuesday November 24th to Sunday November 29th!

In order to space out the in-store traffic we’ll be hosting a sale all week long!

We’ll start by filling the foyer with over 75,000 comics at only $1.00 each (50 cents each for 100 or more). We’ll also give you 50% off all back issues, 20% off statues and action figures, and 10% off everything else in the shop. (Yes, everything.)

During this sale a few other notable things are happening.

Wednesday the 25th is Local Comic Shop Day, and that really just means it’s a good day to stop by your local comic book shop and show your support, even if it’s not us. (this would also be a great day to help us out by coming in to clear out your file before the holidays.)

Oh yeah, there a few exclusive comics coming out that day too, the coolest of which is this cover to Spawn #312, which has the names of hundreds on comic shop built into it.

(we are actually on the back cover as our name is so long.)

The best part is it’s only $2.99!

Thursday is Thanksgiving and we will be closed.

Saturday is Small Business Saturday and another great day to decide to make a stand against big box and stop by to see us.

Can’t stop in? There’s other ways to help out, like helping to spread the word about the shop.

Sunday will be the last time the $1.00 books will be in the foyer for quite some time so make the most out of it!

We are starting to get covers back in for our holiday art show, like this one by Dave Wendt @doodlindave

Here’s a link to everything you need to know if you’d like to do a cover.

I’m just going to throw one new releases at you this week, and that’s Marvel’s Indigenous Voices one shot, a $4.99 book spotlighting some Native American comic book creators!

Here’s the Veregge Native American variant cover to Captain America #25 too!

As always, thanks for shopping with us during the current social climate. Rest assured we will continue to do everything we can to create a safe shopping experience for everyone!

It’s a quick and easy week at the comic book shop before the holidays start up.

Here’s the featured new releases coming out this Wednesday, November 11th 2020!

The big winner this week is the Punchline Special written by James Tynion IV.

Learn a little more about her back story and where she’s headed after the events of Joker War in this one shot.

Another fun ride is this week’s Dark Nights Death Metal Infinite Hours Exxxtreme one shot introducing the Dark Multiverse version of Lobo, the Batman who Frags!

It reads like old school 90’s Lobo!

Teen Titans Go has a new original graphic novel with the kids playing B & B. (Basements and Basilisks).

Robin as the “Dungeon” master!

Last Rites continues in Amazing Spider-Man #52.

Which will also have the previously mentioned Veregge cover for Native American Heritage month.

Taskmaster gets his own five issue mini series.

This week’s one dollar True Believer reprints are off the hook. The first appearance of Black Panther and the first Lady Liberators!

Last week we sent out an email and a call to arms for local artists for our annual holiday art show to benefit the Cleveland Food Bank. All the information on that is on our website now. Please share with people you think would be interested!

Art by @notsquid Craig Worrell!

We will also be having Black Friday week from Tuesday November 24th to Sunday November 29th. Expect the foyer to be filled with dollar books and all back issues to be 50% off. (as well as discounts on everything else!)

That’s it! Thanks everyone!
