Christmas Party December 20th at CNJCOMICS

ChristmasBannerIt’s time again for that most amazing of holiday traditions, the Carol and John’s Comic Book Shop Customer Appreciation Christmas Party! (or C.J.C.B.S.C.A.C.P. !)

On Saturday December 20th from 8pm to 11pm we’ll be pulling out all the stops to express our gratitude for another successful year in business. Our old school Christmas Party features freebies, exclusives, free drinks and food, sales and a little art show to benefit the Cleveland Food Bank.

First off, stop by the shop to pick up an invite which is good for 33% off any one item of your choice. (Guess what? We’re also letting you just print one off this year too.)

You don’t need an invite to get into the party as ALL are welcome, but you do need it for the discount. One coupon per person and it MUST be used at the party. You can print this image out and use it:

PosrcardfrontWe’ll also be having deals ALL DAY on the 20th, such as:

  • 50% off ALL Back Issues
  • 20% off ALL Graphic Novels
  • 20% off ALL Action Figures, T-Shirts and Statues
  • 10% off EVERYTHING else in the shop

This is your day to power shop for the holidays!

At the party we’ll be serving up FREE beer, wine, and other refreshments including our exclusive CNJComics Christmas Ale from Cleveland Action Brewery

Beer_LabelThis year’s beer is a Ginger Bread Stout. We’ve made 80 of them and they’ll be tapped right when the doors open at 8pm.

We’ll also have treats from Darkside Desserts, including their tequila filled margarita cupcakes. (they are the bomb)

Non alcoholic options will also be made available.

Carol will be making an appearance as Mrs. Claus with our very own Bad Santa Rick. Be sure to get your picture taken with these two holiday legends. Tip: wearing tacky Christmas clothes makes holiday pictures better.

IMG_5570TSure we’ll be listing to holiday tunes and playing Rankin-Bass holiday specials, but the heart and soul of the event is our food drive with Pop The Comic Culture Club.

Quite a few local artists have helped us out by creating custom comic book covers that will be on display the entire day on the 20th. These covers can be won through a basket raffle system, where you can earn tickets from donating food items or money. One food item, one ticket. One dollar, one ticket. All this money will go to the Cleveland Food Bank. Winners will be drawn live at the party at 10:30pm. You do no have to be present to win.

Here’s one of Ryan Finley’s contributions

GrootIn addition to being able to view the covers and power shop early, we’ve got a few other reason to stop in the shop early that day.

We’ll be giving out a FREE Marvel Comics Holiday Magazine with any purchase. This is a $9.99 value and it’s got some great content including stories from Stan Lee, Deadpool, Squirrel Girl, Dr Doom, and content from the 1970’s Marvel Holiday Treasury Edition. We have 200 of these to give away. Hopefully these books will last till the party.

Christmas_magazineWe will also be giving away a free lithograph created by Rust Belt Monster Erin Schechtman. This lithograph was created for us as our Christmas present to you this year, and is also free with a purchase. This 11×17 peace features all the Marvel Women out on ladies night, and is a sign of respect to our female customers and their important place in our growing hobby. There’s a lot going on here. 🙂

Christmas_EventEvery time you share this image, an angel gets his wings, somebody who’s hungry gets a meal, and another comic book fan gets a free beer.

Thanks Cleveland, and we’ll see you on Saturday!
