It’s another week shuttered up with CNJComics!
Let’s see, where to begin. We actually got an article in the Wall Street Journal this past Monday about our efforts to keep the boys employeed while we’re closed up. The Wall Street Journal man! Both online and in print! America!
We also sent out a bunch of deliveries. Ben’s been busy bringing your comics to you through non contact delivery.
Please continue to email us with your comic book needs. Free delivery within the county for orders over $20 and we ship anywhere too.
You can also call us at 216-252-0606, either Ben or Jim is there most of the time. If no one answers go with email at firstname.lastname@example.org
To be clear: No one enters the store, no curbside pickup. We hope restrictions will lighten up on May 1st but who knows?
In general, we’re doing fine. Everyone is keeping busy. I even put a Lego Comic Shop set together in my spare time.
We are doing another Facebook Live Sale on Monday April 13th from 6pm to 7:30pm! This one will be all late Silver / early Bronze ags DC’s so I’m really going to have to stretch my knowledge base to keep it together. (I even dipped into my private collection to put some interesting things in there. Some minor changes after receiving some feedback from everyone.
There will be a gallery of the books going up early on Facebook as always, with no prices on them. During the live sale, when you claim the book, you have to give the price of the book in your claim along with the name of the book. So “Claim Justice League #55 $10”. Since I reveal the price when the book is presented this puts everyone on the same starting ground.
At the end of the show we will rewatch it and make the claims in the order in which the are put in through the time stamp. Then Ben will post of list of all the books with the name of the people who won them, so you’ll have confirmation that night! Then just contact us as always for payment and delivery/shipping options. We’ve had alot of issues with people thinking they won a book but they didn’t for this reason: when you type a claim, it always looks like you won on your computer. It’s like typing your name into Microsoft Word, it’s just there right away. This is not how we wind up seeing it on our end. The best way to see this for yourself is to watch the show after it is posted on our page and you will see the true claim times after your post makes it through cyber verse. We want this to be as fair as possible (shake the box!) and this is the best way to make sure everyone is treated fairly. (Respectfully, we cannot come into your house and speed up your internet.)
To be clear, we are grateful for every purchase you make and it helps to keep us afloat during this period in time. Thank you thank you thank you! The response to this has been amazing, in the last sale we sold 135 out of 139 books! (We even posted a pure gallery sale last week, with no live sale attached to it, and that did really good as well.)
The upcoming schedule for shows will be:
- Sunday April 19th 6 pm to 7:30 pm Late Silver / Early Bronze Marvels
- Monday April 27th 6 pm to 7:30 pm Late Silver / Early Bronze Marvels
There will also be another gallery only sale somewhere in between.
Then hopefully, we’ll be open on May 1st! I watch the Governor’s 2pm speech every day it’s on ans things seem optimistic, but again who knows?
Stay safe everyone and remember…
Ever working even as the ship is taking on water…
Yes, yes, we know we’re close to each other in the picture, but it was a rare occurance, and we are all properly sanitized up.
Happy Easter too!
