INTRODUCING - Comic Store West Web Forums



We've had several people ask us to create web forums for local players to be able to post if they are looking for games, or rules questions, or just chat if you can't connect with each other at the store.

With help from Adam and Angry Scott we now have a pretty nice store forum established. Next task is to get players to join us in discussions and postings.

Check out our NEW forums at http://comicstorewest.freeforums.net

Dice Masters Update



Stop in and check out this great new dice game from WizKids.
Starters have been drastically allocated, but more will be arriving very soon.

We have plenty of 99 cent boosters for sale now.
Stock up, as soon as more Starters arrive we will get them to you.

If you want to get on a waiting list let us know !!

As a result of this news WizKids has moved the MONTH 1 OP event. There WILL NOT be a Dice Masters event at the store this Saturday as previously scheduled. Check back here for future updates.

Really not cool, guys

So, this happened:


Yeah. Just in case seeing that didn't reflexively make you put your fist through your computer monitor, here's famed writer Greg Rucka explaining just WTF is wrong with it:

My daughter, she’s a lot like her mother and me. Which makes sense, but where our son seems to have inherited his mother’s even keel and gentle soul, my daughter got the short straw, and drew my emotional volatility. She’s smart, maybe too smart, and she runs hot like I do, and she feels deeply, and passionately, and she sees more than maybe a lot of kids her age see. And she’s a geek (hell, she’s practically a hipster-geek, as she informed me she’d been reading Divergent before anyone even knew about the movie, let alone the book), she reads comics, she dresses up as Captain Marvel and Black Widow and she swings a lightsaber and uses her Nerf guns to shoot vampires just the way Buffy taught her.

So she doesn’t fit in. She’s in a school that’s a pretty good school, to be honest, but the ratio of boys to girls in her class has been 2:1 for the last five years. That takes a toll. And some of those boys? They’re not that far from Neanderthal in their thinking about gender (and what is going on at home with those boys I am forced to wonder…). And the girls in her class, they’ve pretty much made her odd-girl-out for five years now, because that’s the game they’re playing.

It's worth reading his whole post, so here's that link again. And if you know someone who would unironically wear that shirt, ask them what the heck is wrong with their priorities.

Well, except for the "hating coffee" part. Because that I can 100% get behind. Fell free to yell at me about that in the comments.

For those viewing from Facebook, click here.

Happy 75th birthday, Batman!

Remember last year, when we showed you that awesome Superman animated short? Here's something similar, this time starring Batman Beyond:


If you miss Batman Beyond (the cartoon), remember that you can buy Batman Beyond (the comic). You can also sign up for Future's End, the upcoming time-travel miniseries that looks to feature him pretty heavily.

Watch out as they will be sure to capture you but don't freak out you will be held captive to allow you to take all the photo ops you want for free! But this is also for a good cause as well any donations will be for the American Cancer Society.

Become an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. - for free!

Marvel Comics has teamed up with CafePress to offer free(ish) S.H.I.E.L.D. ID badges.


Granted, the official Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. website offered something similar, but that was just a digital file - this is a real, honest-to-goodness physical ID badge. Impress your friends! Intimidate your enemies! Earn the pity of your non-nerdy family members!

Now, it's not "free" free: you have to pay $1.25 in shipping (and any applicable taxes), but that's fair. They're sending you a real item! So just go to the site, upload a photo and fill out your information!

Free Comic Book Day 2014 - Details Part 6


Please help us raise money to the York Martin Memorial Library.
