the book club we hosted on the matter.
This week is also a
new volume of Dog Man!
Laugh all you want,
Dog Man is the best selling graphic novel on the market, by far. Dav Pilkey,
the creator of Captain Underpants, is a genius with an incredible backstory.
You may have heard
that we got a great new collection in, Marvel Comics from the 60’s and 70’s.
We’re working our way
through the books but the stuff we have out is now is 25% off as always.
There’s about nine
long boxes out right now with more to come. For the Christmas Sale on December 21st (the day of the Art Show
and Holiday Party) to the 24th, these books WILL be 50% off. This is our thank
you to you for a great year.
Oh yeah, you also get to use this coupon at the PARTY ONLY from 8 pm to 11 pm on December 21st. (No joke, we love you but there’s no sustainable model for us where we allow 50% off one item whenever.)
Here’s all the info on this years’ annual Holiday Party / Art Show / Sale / Fundraiser to benefit the Cleveland Food Bank!
Art and Fundraiser
December 21st from 10 am to 7 pm we’ll be hosting an art show featuring local
artists who created custom covers to benefit the Cleveland Food Bank. These covers can be won in
a basket raffle system where one food item or one dollar gets you a ticket. You
pick which cover your ticket goes to so you can win a one you really like. This
year’s art show theme is a comic book character / Christmas movie mashup, which
we’ve been having a lot of fun with.
Here are some of the covers from previous years, all based on Uncle Eddie from Christmas Vacation:
We will shut down the store at 7 PM only to reopen at 8 PM for our annual Holiday Customer Appreciation Party! The party lasts till around 11 PM and features snacks, beverages, and the required holiday cheer. Winners of the basket raffle are drawn promptly at 10:30 PM. Winners need not be present but if you’re there you can take your artwork home with you.
All the money
collected during the art show will go to the Cleveland Food Bank, who have the
amazing ability to turn one dollar into four full meals for those in need
during the holidays.
We will also be having a holiday sale from Saturday, December 21st to Tuesday, December 24th. (We thrive during this time period when it’s too late to successfully order stuff through online. We always have gift certificates!) This sale will absolutely be in effect during the art show.
This sale includes:
50% off all back issues (yes all, even the new collection we just bought. Hey, it’s Christmas right?)
20% off all graphic novels
20% off all action figures, statues and pop funs.
10% off everything else in the shop
All are welcome to our holiday party which, as previously stated, runs from 8 PM to 11 PM on Saturday, December 21st. Our first party gift to you is this coupon good for 50% off any one item in the shop! Please print this image out or show it to us on your smartphone when you check out.
Coupons MUST be used at the party between 8 PM to 11 PM period. (sorry, no exceptions.) Limit one coupon per person.
We have also brewed
two beers just for the party, Thanos’s Ginger “Snap” Ale and Spidey’s
Shitter’s Full Christmas Ale.
Labels are being designed by Craig Worrell and will be revealed soon!
These beers are free and go pretty quickly starting right at 8 PM. We’ll also have other beers as well as non-alcoholic refreshments. (For the record, our holiday party is and will always be an all-ages affair.) While refreshments are free, our bartender Macklin works solely on tips, so please do the right thing.
Chocolates will also be provided by Fear’s Confections in Lakewood, one of our favorite small businesses in the area. Thanks Cassandra!
Carol will be there, and hopefully Santa Claus will stop by too! Honestly after a few drinks, anything is possible. We always have photo op areas set up around the shop so be sure to wear your Christmas finest. Wearing stupid holiday clothes makes everything more fun. I know I’ve got my outfit ready. (From Lansky Brothers!)
This is our way of bringing all of our favorite people together to give something back to the community. Over the last six year’s we’ve been able to assist the Cleveland Food Bank in creating over 60,000 meals. All this is only possible with your help, which we are always grateful for. This party is our way of saying thank you for your support year-round! (and it’s a lot of fun to put together too!)
So spread the word
Cleveland, and we’ll see you on December 21st!
