Captain America Age of Ultron Poster


So it seems like Marvel has been releasing the character posters for Age of Ultron via the actors' Twitter accounts, which is a pretty awesome idea. See other character posters and movie tidbits here!

Avengers: Age of Ultron is released on May 1, 2015!

50 Shades of Wayne

Not the parody we need, but the one we deserve right now:

Canadians honor Leonard Nimoy by putting Spock on the $5 bill

Okay, not officially, but just via the magic of currency-based vandalism:


The man who's really on the bill is Prime Minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier, but his stern looks are perfect for turning him into a Vulcan - and the Canadian $5 bill is blue, just like Spock's uniform! And luckily, defacing bills isn't technically illegal in Canada, though the Treasury Board does "strongly object" to the practice, because it means the bills have to be replaced sooner.

In honor of this trend, and FOR TODAY ONLY, we will accept Canadian pennies in our Take A Penny/Leave A Penny tray (because they're functionally indistinguishable from real pennies anyway).


(We miss you, Mr. Nimoy.)

New AVENGERS: Age of Ultron Character Posters


A few more character posters have been released for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

(See here and here for other Age of Ultron tidbits)

Thor (above), Black Widow, and Nick Fury have been released today [other two below]!

Live Long and Prosper


Today, the world lost a great man, and I lost a great friend. We return you now to the stars, Leonard. You taught us to "Live Long And Prosper," and you indeed did, friend. I shall miss you in so many, many ways." -George Takei

We've lost a great actor, humanitarian, and friend today. Leonard Nimoy, 83, who played Spock in the original Star Trek franchise has passed away from end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

"His zeal to entertain and enlighten reached beyond Star Trek and crossed genres. He had a starring role in the dramatic television series Mission: Impossible and frequently performed onstage, notably as Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof. His poetry was voluminous, and he published books of his photography.

He also directed movies, including two from the Star Trek franchise, and television shows. And he made records, singing pop songs as well as original songs about Star Trek, and gave spoken-word performances — to the delight of his fans and the bewilderment of critics." [New York Times]

He was also given a place in the rebooted Star Trek films by director J.J. Abrams. In these films he played an older version of the Spock, who's younger form had been recast as Zachary Quinto.

R.I.P Leonard, and thank you for giving us everything.

Live Long and Prosper everyone.

Archie Comics gets in on #TheDress controversy

Yesterday you probably saw people fighting about the color of a dress in a poorly lit photo. Today, Archie Comics reminds us that there's an even older dilemma that's yet to be solved:

State of the Store Address 2015 (First Half of Year)

Just a quick update on stuff going on at the store.

The biggest thing we have going on is the new POS and Comic Pull system. We are doing a complete store inventory this weekend and have plans to begin using the new system beginning this Sunday. YAY !!! As I may have mentioned please bear with us as we continue learning all the ways to make the system work. It is very different from our old DOS based machine (yes you heard me correctly).

March
Central PA Comic Con
Yes, we will be there and have swag bags for the first 25 purchases each day.
We plan on having massive amounts of back issue bundles, some CGC books, and some of our best selling games.
Stop by and say hi. Also talk us up at the con so everyone knows what the greatest comic and game store is in PA.

April
International TableTop Day is back on Saturday April 11.
We are working on details now but I'm hearing lots of good things planned for this event.

May
FREE COMIC BOOK DAY.
Some planning has begun here.
As you all know we try and change it up every year and this year is no different.
Way until you hear what we have in store for you this year :)

Some more stuff I am hearing rumors about but nothing official yet:
Weekly Star Wars X-Wing tournaments may be starting up again, monthly Imperial Assault and Star Wars Armada events, DC Deckbuilding League.

So that is the big stuff coming up with the store.
If you have friends or family going to other stores, tell them they should give us a try.
We love new subscribers.

p.s
We are looking for some GMs for monthly events at the store.
I'll work on an official posting soon to let everyone know what we need.

Thanks everyone.
Keep spreading the word.





TableTop Day - Saturday, April 11



Just a reminder to mark your calendars for Saturday, April 11.
It's International TableTop Day and it's looking like it could be our biggest one yet.

To early to reveal but we have some amazing stuff in the works for the event.

Don't forget Tuesday evenings at the store is now referred to has TableTop Tuesday. We play a large variety of tabletop games.

"Powers" trailer


The series premieres March 10. If you don't have a Playstation (or, on top of that, if you don't have the Playstation Network), you'll just have to content yourself with some TPBs of the comic series until it gets picked up by Netflix or FX or AMC or whoever. Fortunately, the first season (if that's how this series is being divided) seems to be based on the "Who Killed Retro Girl?" arc that kicked off the book. So if you like Bendis' other work and you haven't given Powers a try yet, now is as good a time as any!

Even More Avengers: Age of Ultron Tidbits


More and more things keep being revealed about Avengers: Age of Ultron, the follow-up to the hit 2012 film.

Director Joss Whedon, in an interview with Yahoo! said, "[Avengers: Age of Ultron] got larger than the first film," Whedon says. "I didn't mean for it to get larger, but the climax that I pitched was completely unhinged and nobody said no, so that's that."

That sounds absolutely insane, since there's a cast of new and returning characters: Peggy Carter, Heimdall, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, and the Falcon, as well as the original Avengers crew.

Anybody who has seen any of the more recent Marvel films is aware of some of the genre hopping that's been happening: The Winter Soldier was more of a spy thriller and there are rumors that Ant-Man is going to be like a heist film.

Whedon said, in the same interview, "To me, adventure film is the best way to put it," he says. "Then science fiction, action, western, war, woman's picture, horror movie ... I'm not kidding; every single one of those things is in there."

Avengers: Age of Ultron will be released May 1st!

Two more Age of Ultron morsels!


So, there's the official Hulk character poster. Below is the second TV spot that has started/will start airing!


This is getting so, so exciting!

HeroClix / Star Wars Miniatures Update

New HeroClix and Star Wars Miniatures have come in this week and much are already sold out.
We are working very hard to get more in ASAP and hope to have more HeroClix in a day or two.

Allocations of some of this product have hurt us as well as the West Coast Labor strike and a shipment that was lost in transit.

The HeroClix event for Sunday is still on, and is set to be a 2 booster sealed event.

Please consider reserving HeroClix and Star Wars Miniature items with us early so we can hold product for you when it first comes in. It will also help us in determining how much to order.

WarMachine / Hordes League Starting Monday



Western Immoren is plagued by ceaseless bloodshed, unspeakable atrocities, and constant strife. All nations and kingdoms are embroiled in armed conflict, enigmatic cults rise from the shadows to terrorize the citizens, and even the skies are filled with horrors. Life grows harder and harsher each day as these conflicts continue to intensify.

Though the strongest may survive, smaller and less resilient communities fall victim to any number of violent calamities raging across the land. Villages are wiped out, rural settlements vanish overnight, and many other residents are exploited by opportunistic villains once their protectors are slain or sent to fight elsewhere. A new apocalypse can be experienced each day in the regions less protected by the mighty Iron Kingdoms.

This season, you travel to broken lands that have fallen under the control of tyrants and warlords. The power vacuum left behind in these devastated regions has been filled by madmen and megalomaniacs. This upheaval has not gone unnoticed by the armies of western Immoren. It is time to gather your troops, call forth your greatest heroes, and march to take control of—or to protect—these war-torn areas.

Starting March 2 and running through March 29.
Stop in and sign-up today.

Robert Downey Jr is teasing us


So what's happening in eight days?
