Here’s the featured
new releases for the final week of January!
Marvel has been making
a series of one shots chronicling the final days of their heroes and heroines.
This week we’ve got books for Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel and Deadpool!
It’s also a really big
week for X-titles, with new issues of X-Men, Fallen Angels, New Mutants, and
We’ll also be getting
in reprints of alot of X-titles that we’ve sold out of.
If you were a fan of
the original Old Man Logan, this week’s Avengers of the Wasteland #1 shows the
lives of the heroes living out in the, well, the Wasteland.
Luke Cage’s daughter
is the new Thor!
DC and Watchmen News
We’ve been a big fan
of DC’s all ages original graphic novels, and this week Cassandra Cain returns
to one as Batgirl.
We just restocked all
of out PVC Gallery statues, they’re in the case where the pub glasses were.
We’ve got a few brand new ones this week too, like the Joker Killing Joke.
Finally, it’s getting
close to our second book club on Thursday February 6th. At 8pm that night we’ll
be discussing Doomsday Clock and the Watchman TV Show.
The ramification of
Doomsday Clock are just being felt in the DCU, specifically in Wonder Woman
#750 last week, so it’ll be a fun topic to discuss. The TV show had an
incredibly satisfying ending, so catch yourself up and come on in.
Lasy time we had some
cool raffle prizes and this time is no different. I’m going to raffle off my
Watchman Portfolio at the end of the book club! Looking around online prices
vary but it’s worth at least $150, and it’s pretty rare too.
Just a head up way in
advance that we will be setting up a Wizard World this year.
We want you to get
first shot at the half off Silver Age we have before we take it to the show. Winston World (Our in shop sale to coincide
with Wizard World) will start the weekend before the show on Saturday February
29th and last until the end of WW on Sunday March 8th.
While the 50% off back
issues will be for the whole week, be advised the Silver Age will only be in
the shop from the 29th to the 4th. You get first crack before we take it Down
Saturday is the big

We expect to be busy right at 10 AM when we open because we are offering an incredible 50% off ALL back issues, including the collection of 1960 and 70’s Marvel’s we just bought. That is eleven long boxes of incredible books, as well as our regular back issue inventory at 50% off! Here’s a look at some of the keys that are still up there as of today!

I have been diligently
drinking beer and grading comics over the past couple of weeks to get ready for
What kind of beer?
The beer that we’ll be giving out FREE Saturday Night at our Christmas Party!
Thanos’ Ginger “SNAP” Christmas Ale by Ben and Raphael!
As well as
Spider-Man’s “Shitter’s Full” Christmas Ale by yours truly.
These beers go fast at the party starting at 8 pm! (So yes, you do have to make a decision between sniping that item with your 50% off coupon and getting in line for a beer, BUT IT CAN BE DONE!)
Here’s that coupon
again, good for 50% off one item AT THE PARTY ONLY!
The really big part of the day is the ART SHOW! Thank you artists for all the amazing work that has been turned in! We have a really fun display to check out this year! Bring your food items (and extra money) to donate to the food bank for a chance to win one of these one-of-a-kind prizes!
We would also like to thank Jason Fitch and his family for taking responsibility for getting all the food items collected in the right place! Word is the Cleveland Food Bank is even sending representatives to thank everyone at the party around 9 pm!
And as always,
there is … RICK.
Carol will be there
too, and I think I have Ben convinced to dress up like Uncle Eddie for photo
ops for a bit.
and now…. for some reminders from the previous messages…
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.
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 the above 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.
The 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!
As we mentioned before, 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!
