It’s that time of year again! Winston World is our annual sale timed to coincide with that other thing that’s going on downtown.

Winston World is incredibly simple.

From Saturday February 29 to Sunday March 8th you will get:

  • 50% off all back issues
  • 10% off everything else in the shop. (Yes everything.)

We will be setting up at Wizard World this year, so we decided to start the sale a week early so that you can dig through the Silver Age comics for 50% off before we move them to the show on Thurday March 5th. We want you to get first crack at them, so please be sure to come in before the 5th if that’s what you’re into!

If you want to see us at that “other thing’ we’ll be at booth number 330. Stop by and say hi, we’ll likely need the moral support.

We’re actually launching the Wizard World in the tackiest way possible. On Friday February 28th we’ll be going Live on our Facebook site to open up some blind box cat hats, to see what Winston gets to wear during the week.

It’s not like we’re going to jam him into one of the hats on the spot so the APL hunts us down, but to be fair, this is a cat who enjoys a good cosplay.

Honestly, we’re all really hoping for the banana hat.

This Saturday I’ll also be going across town to set up at Lake Erie Ink’s Comicon for Kids, an all day workshop to help kids create their own comics.

They get a great turnout and we’ll be over their handing out free stuff to participants and providing some old school dollar bins for the kids to dig through on their breaks. More info on the here!

Alright, we hope to see you in some capacity or another over the next week, till then, MAKE MINE WINSTON!

Winston World 2020 at CNJComics

Just a quick email this week as I’m on the road at the ComicsPro meeting in Portland Oregon!

First up, Wolverine is back in his own ongoing series!

With the Mutant Island established what does Wolverine do when he’s….happy?

Art by Adam Kubert and featuring the return of Omega Red.

This week we had some speculator issues.  We’re happy to say that everyone who has it on their file will get a copy of Batman #89, and at cover price too. It’s going for $30-$40 dollars online and features the first appearance of Punchline, the Joker’s new sidekick. (So essentially the new Harley.)

We have no copies hitting the table as they have been scooped up with preorders. Second prints are on the way.

To be clear, we will never charge you more for a (non ratio) new comic.

This is also a good time to put in a commercial for starting a file. All you need to do is have five books held every month and pick them up once a month and you get 10% off ALL your new comic purchases. You need never miss a comic again! Just ask at the counter to set one up.

We do appreciate that some regulars don’t want to start a file, and it does suck when you can’t get a book that you want because they get sucked up. Ah, comic books.

We also have one more speculator book this week, Flash Forward #6, where Wally West becomes the new Metron who they’re saying is the DCU’s Dr Manhatten.

There was some lead time on this info so we do have copies on the table as of Wednesday morning.

There’s also two great DC Black Label books continuting this week, Wonder Woman Dead Earth #2 and Joker Killer Smile #3.

Oh yeah, and Archie meets the B-52’s!

Lastly, mark you calander for Winston World and a week of half off back issues and 10% off everything else in the shop from 2-29 to 3-8 to coincide with Wizard World downtown!

It’s Valentine’s Day at CNJComics, and every year we put some valentine’s in a bowl and let you pull one out when you check out. These can contain extra discounts, free graphic novels, all kinds of sweet stuff. Stop by on the 14th and see what you get! And remember…

This week in celebration of the release of Harley Quinn (and whatever they’re calling it now) we thought we’d featured female lead characters in our new releases!

(It goes withour saying that we carry a full compliment of Harley Quinn Graphic Novels, Comics and Action Figure. One to grow one.)

First up, appropriately enough, is the new Black Label Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey #1!

The big news is this four issue mini series and written and drawn by Amanda Conner! Supercool to see her back on the character. The Joker sends ‘every super villain in Gotham’ to go after Harley, and the Birds step up to help her out. The Black Label designation means an oversized format for mature readers!

While you can jump on the above at the ground floor, this week is also the final issue of the Harley Quinn / Poison Ivy mini series.

Issue #6 has some great Mark Brooks variant covers showcasing the two heroines. (er, villians.)

Over at Marvel, Gwen Stacy gets her own book with a J. Scott Campbell cover!

In a story that tells her ‘origin’ and predates her first appeance in ASM #31!

Also this week, Thanos’s other daughter gets her own title with Nebula #1.

This five issue mini series is from two up and coming female creators Vita Ayala and Claire Roe!

I don’t usually recommend Marvel Epic Collections, but this week’s Black Widow is fantastic. It reprints all her earliest appearances in order from the 1960’s.

Finally, one for the kids. Zatanna gets her own all ages original graphic novel from DC’s.

I get really excited when these come out, they’re perfect for early 2nd through 4th grade readers.

That’s it for this week! Happy Valentine’s Day! We love ya!
