Our Black Friday sale has become our longest running shop event.
While it’s easily our biggest sale of the year, it has actually become sort of an anti Black Friday Event. We have our event from 7pm to midnight on Friday evening, so that we are not a part of prying you away from your family during the holiday. Our goal is to provide a fun shopping experience and not some epic consumer battle. We also know that quite a few of our customers work retail themselves, and this late night event gives then a place to unwind and do some shopping themselves before heading home. (Quite a few people sneak out after the kids are put to sleep too!)
So here it is, On Friday November 28th from 7pm to midnight we’ll be having our annual Black Friday Sale.
For this sale we pull out over 50,000 comic books from the back room and put them at $1.00 each. These boxes are (mostly) IN ORDER so be sure to get your want lists together. There will be new boxes from collections we have purchased and not got around to processing. Have at it!
Also that night:
- 20% off all Graphic Novels and Hardcovers
- 50% off all Back Issues
- 20% off the New Comic Wall
- 20% off Statues and Action Figures
- Discount Graphic Novel Bins reduced to 75% off.
- 10% off EVERYTHING else in the shop. (you know, stuff like supplies, pints glasses, everything!)
And most importantly…
THE RAFFLES! This has become the most popular part of the night.
We’ll be raffling off 50 hand picked Hardcovers and Graphic Novels at a rate of 5 every half hour starting at 7:30pm.
You get a raffle ticket for every 10 dollars you spend and the tickets stay in there all night long. YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN! This greatly increases your chance of winning if you stick around. We also do other random raffles throughout the night when the energy is up! Tickets are non transferable and you can win up to three times.
At midnight we raffle off a $100 gift certificate. You must also be present to win that. Lots of people head out for a few hours and return at midnight for a chance to win.
We will provide cool holiday music, some movies to watch in the back ground and drinks and snacks throughout the night. (word is a couple of those drinks become adult beverages around 10 pm)
So if you’ve been thinking about making a trip to the shop from out of town, this is the night you’ve been waiting for. A lot of the dollar stock is only pulled out of our storage locker for this event.
We will have sales all weekend from Friday to Sunday, but nothing as amazing as Friday Night. We’ll also keep the $1.00 bins out all weekend too, in case you can’t make it up for the event.
Saturday is even Small Business Saturday as well as the inaugural year for LOCAL COMIC SHOP DAY!
Local Comics Shop Day is a first year event and we are one of the only shops in the area that will be participating. Find out more about that day here: www.localcomicshopday.com

Our Black Friday event is one we’re pretty sentimental about. This is where our business model began to become event driven all those years ago. Ask anyone who’s been to one how strangely fun it is. Beyond the shopping there’s a feeling of everyone being on the same page and hanging out and talking about comics.
Have fun with your family on Thanksgiving and then stop by to see ours on Friday Night!
