Andrea’s Blasphemous Picks for 02.21.2024

Hello Comic Shop Friends! It’s a little bit of a weird week for us, because ComicsPro is this week, so John, Ben, Kyle, and I will be in Pittsburgh for that for a few days. Stop out and see Raf on Thursday because he’s covering for us! And John Shearer will be covering Friday as well, so come hang out with him too! Don’t worry, Winston and CJ-90 will be keeping an eye on things. We’re excited to see some of our cohorts from other comic shops, and get the scoop on new stuff from comic publishers. And bring back some exclusives for yinz! Come out to the Grog Shop on Wednesday the 21st at 8pm for the monthly Midnight Rental Secret Screening! It’s a big one! It is: the one-year anniversary show, the post-Valentine’s Day show, Rachel from the Grog Shop’s birthday show, and the return of Lenora’s original co-host, Joe. Ben will be co-hosting like usual, and there will be a tape swap! I picked out three legitimately great movies to trade. Bring a wrapped VHS to swap!...

Andrea’s Valentine Picks for 02.14.2024

Happy Valentine’s Day, Comic Shop Friends! If you’re reading this before 4pm on the 14th, stop in the shop and say hi to Carol! She’ll be here from noon to 4pm on Wednesday the 14th, maybe longer depending on how she feels, and she’s excited to be back in the shop and see all of you! And if you’re reading this before the 15th, come on out for our Valentine’s Day Late Nite Comics! We’ll be staying open until midnight, with 60+ long boxes of dollar stock coming out, and if you get 100 or more, they’ll be 50 cents each! We’ll also have a bin with Valentines, and each one has a number for that many free dollar books! Everyone’s a winner, and you could get 1, 3, 5, 10, 20, or 50 free books! Back issues will be 50% off as well, including the wall! It’s our Valentine to all of you, and who doesn’t love dollar books and discounts? Also, keep an eye out for a full Bronze Age Marvel rerack going up early Friday afternoon, and...

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...
