Here's What's New

Andrea’s Meaty Picks for 05.22.2024

Hello there, Comic Shop Friends! Are you ready for some comics? MARVEL COMICS Blood Hunt and the Red Band Blood Hunt #2 are out this week! We did put a full issue list of all the mini-series and tie-ins on the counter that we’re marking off as they come out, so you can take a look at what you’re missing. Also, we should mention that if you’ve picked up a first issue of any of the Blood Hunt mini-series, please let us know if you want them added to your pull list. We want to make sure we order enough to cover everyone! Another great Blood Hunt tie-in! Do you like British horror films? This is giving me 28 Days Later vibes, but with bloodsucking vampires and superheroes! Union Jack may be the only hero left to keep all of England from falling into the darkness, and it doesn’t seem like he really wants the job. Especially after coming across a group of survivors. Now he’s sheltering them in his hideout, along with the thing chained in the basement. Written...

Andrea’s Unspooling Picks for 05.15.2024

Hi Comic Shop Friends! How was your week? I spent my vacation reading all of Saga, so I’m finally caught up and ready for its return in July! Now I have to catch up on last week’s and this week’s books… John will be sending out a Free Comic Book Day thank you email soon, but I want to say thank you to everyone who came out as well. It was a great day, everything was super smooth, and I got an original ALF drawing from Luna, so I don’t know how next year will top that. Lots going on this week, so here’s info on that, then onto new books! You should come out to the Grog Shop on Wednesday the 15th for the Midnight Rental Secret Screening and Ben-iversary celebration! It’s the first anniversary of Ben co-hosting with Lenora! It’s always a good time, so join us for a delightfully bad movie! $10! Doors at 7 pm, Movie at 8 pm! This Thursday the 16th is Late Nite Comics! We’ll have over 40 long boxes of all new...

Free Comic Book Day Wrap Up at CNJComics

Hey everyone, John here, and I thought it was appropriate to write a thank you email to all the people who helped make this year’s Free Comic Book Day a huge success for us. We’re calling it the best Free Comic Book Day ever, and that statement might not be to far off the mark. For some reason, everything just came together really well this year, and my gratitude levels are off the hook. First off, I’d like to thank the staff. Free Comic Book Day is run by a ten person crew. John Shearer, Ben, Kyle, Andrea, Kevin, MIsty, Mike, Rafael, Felipe and myself. This year’s attendance was over three thousand people, and when you think about that being run by ten people, it’s pretty remarkable. The fact that we had a good time doing it is part of what made this year so fun. Everyone knew their roles, we rotated positions regularly so everyone’s view of the event wasn’t pigeonholed, and everyone got a break to enjoy the event from the outside. I am always impressed with what...
