Andrea’s Action Figure Packed Recs for 12.21.2022

Happy Holidays Comic Shop Friends! It’s a light week new comic-wise (There’s not even any new Image #1s!) but there’s lots of news!

First, thanks to all of you who donated, we were able to gift the Cleveland Food Bank enough to create 24,900 meals! This blows away our previous record of 20,360 in 2020! Thank you to the artists who donated covers for the raffle, thank you to all of you who purchased raffle tickets, and thank you to the community that has formed around the shop. We could not have done it without all of you! Thank you to all of you for stopping in and shopping at our Holiday Party, from all of us!

We also want to remind you that we are stocked, stocked, and stocked with action figures and trades! Our trade reorders came in, we have new action figures and statues hitting the table this week, we have a bunch of manga figures that came in late and most are half off, AND John just gave Ben the go-ahead to mark down most of our DC figures 50% off!

These giant stacks are half off!

Brand new for your last-minute holiday shopping needs!

What if . . . you bought these?

Check out this bad boy!

Even more new stuff!

It’s too late for Amazon, it’s too busy at Target, and online orders will be showing up after Christmas, but your local small businesses are here for you! We’ll help you find what you need for gifts (or something for yourself) and we can write you a gift certificate for any amount!

  • We’ve got comics! We’ve got books for all ages! We’ve got stacks on stacks of toys!
  • All back issues are 50% off! Yes, even the wall books!
  • All statues and regular-price action figures are 20% off!
  • All sales go through Saturday the 24th at 5 pm!

This brings us to the next bit of news: we’ll be closing at 5 pm on Christmas Eve, and will be closed on Christmas Day. Stay safe in this winter storm that’s headed our way, enjoy the holiday in whatever way you celebrate, or whatever way you don’t, and we’ll see you all again on Monday the 26th!


Marvel’s Dark Web is continuing this week with Dark Web: Mary Jane and Black Cat #1, Dark Web: Ms. Marvel #1, and Gold Goblin #2.

Set against the explosive backdrop of Dark Web, with demonic newspapers and evil appliances, Mary Jane Watson and Felicia Hardy find themselves thrown into one another’s paths and into Limbo! But there is something different about MJ, and she’s not the only one keeping secrets. With a backup story about Black Cat stealing Doctor Doom’s mask!

Kamala Khan is in her first few weeks as an intern at Oscorp, but she may be the last line of defense when dangerous experiments go haywire thanks to the Spider-Epic Dark Web! Things are even worse when Ms. Marvel finds herself in Limbo with no choice but to fight her way out.


The finale of Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths that launches the DCU into 2023 is here! The Great Darkness is defeated, but the final war has just begun between the remaining heroes and Deathstroke’s Dark Army. The Justice League and the Infinite Earths have returned, but at what cost?

And finally, just a head’s up that we will be closed on New Year’s Day, Sunday, January 1st, 2023 as well. We’re looking forward to seeing you all in the shop the rest of this year and into the New Year for more great comics!
