Andrea’s Romantic Picks for 02.07.2024

Hey, Comic Shop Friends! First up, big news! Winston, and by default, the shop, is now on the ShopCats app! You can give Winston virtual scritches, log your visits to the shop, and add pictures of Winston! There’s also a map to help you find other shop cats in the area. My favorite thing is when I open the app, it tells me when there’s a shop cat nearby! Cats! Now onto the news you actually care about: It’s Take Your Mom to Work Day at CNJComics on Wednesday, February 14th! John’s going to bring Carol into the shop to hang out for her 80th (!) birthday! She’ll be here when the shop opens at noon and plans to stay until at least 4pm. (Maybe later, depending on how she feels.) Stop by and say hi! Coming up on Thursday, February 15th, it’s Late Nite Comics! We’ll be bringing out boxes and boxes and boxes of dollar stock, and because it’s the (day after) Valentine’s Day edition, we’ll be doing something special. Pull a valentine out of our bin and...

Andrea’s Bizarro Picks for 01.10.2024

Hi Comic Shop Friends! It’s another small-ish week, so we’re having a quiet start to the year at the shop, which is a nice break after a busy December. A couple of things coming up: Late Nite Comics is back! Thursday, January 18th from 8pm to midnight we’ll be pulling out dollar boxes, and those books will only be 50 cents each! Grab some deals and fill up your collection! You can’t beat 50 cent books!e We have a temporary setup until the new back issue bins are built, but dollar books are out in their new home! There are still a few action figures left, but that’s it, since we won’t be carrying action figures anymore. We will still carry statues, and Ben just did a reorder on those to fill the case back up! Ben is also co-hosting with Lenora at the Midnight Rental Secret Screening at the Grog Shop on Wednesday January 10th! Doors at 7 for an hour of vintage trailers and commercials, then the secret film starts at 8pm. Lenora finally got me with one...

Andrea’s Pre-Christmas Picks for 12.20.2023

Merry Christmas, Comic Shop Friends! We had a great time at our Holiday party, thanks to all of you who made it out! And a huge thank you to everyone who donated to the raffle! Our total was $6296, which creates 18,888 meals! Another huge thanks to everyone who submitted a cover, we couldn’t do it without your help! We had a record number of covers to raffle off, 156, so keep that in mind for next year so we can top that, and beat this year’s donation amount for the Cleveland Food Bank. This is also a good time to remind you that the Cleveland Food Bank needs donations all year long, so if you are in a position to do so, send some money their way throughout the year. Some photos from the night: John Shearer is bummed he didn’t win the Short Box King cover I did, but John’s daughter won it, so there may be some deals in play to get it into the hands of SBK. Especially since John Shearer won the original painting of...
