Attention WizKids Fans

We have just received our WizKids Convention Weekend Kits in and are prepping everything for Saturday, Feb 2 and Sunday, Feb 3. We received THREE kits so have THREE of the ULTRA RARE PURPLE PANTS FOOMS and 6 of the ULTRA RARE Johnny Thunders. We have loads of Thors, Batmans, Pirate ships, Vladd the Impaler and Halo Clix LE figs too. Make sure you stop in to the store Feb 2 and Feb 3 to get these hard to find items.

On a side note those who saw the WizKids announcement that WizKids is sold out of the next HeroClix set - CRISIS before it even ships have no fear. We have ordered a total of 10 cases of CRISIS and should have plenty to satisfy everyone's need for the RARE (limit to 5000) LE figure that you get for purchasing a brick. If you are worried you may PRE-ORDER your BRICK today (PRE SALES do not count toward purchase requirements for WizKids Convention Weekend).

Roadtrip to Gemstone Publishing

Brett and I went over to Gemstone Publishing this morning to visit them and tour the place. Gemstone Publishing does the Disney Comics and the Overstreet Price Guide. They used to be based in Maryland but now are only 5 minutes from the store. We met some great people and saw some awesome Vintage Pop Culture items. We even held a copy of Amazing Fantasy #15 (the first appearance of Spider-Man). We had a great time and look forward to working with them in the future.

Check out their website here.

BACK ISSUE EXPLOSION !!

We have recently purchased several large collections and have been going through and loading both the regular back issue bins and the BARGAIN BINS with new material. Keep checking the bins weekly because I still have several THOUSAND comics to sort through.

Also check out our back room inventory (even though it is in the early stages) you can see what we have in the back that may not be out on the floor. I am half way through the Marvel Comics and am making good progress. Click here to see the list so far.

Magic City Championships

Here is a link to the 'OFFICIAL' DCI standings for the store championships. I'm still awaiting word on our 12/22 event.

Magic City Championship Event #4 Update

Apparently since our Event #4 only had 7 players DCI declined the event and results. I have an email into our contact to double check on this. It sucks and I am very sorry. The results may need to be removed with the store standings updated to reflect the declined event. I will post an update when I learn more.

Mutants & Masterminds Game Day

Session 1 had two fine games. 4 players enjoyed a Paragons Campaign run by Jason Altland. Paragons is a world of normal people with paranormal powers. Game 2 was the "Liberty Corp" a Golden age adventure set in 1938 America. The Gamemaster of this game was Bill Jordan. Four players battled Nazi's on a moving train. Session 2 saw 5 players assume the identity's of the Justice League. Jason Altland led this DC adventure. Six other players portrayed new hero's in Kevin Hakes "Time of Crisis part 2" adventure.

Back Issue Inventory

I've decided to take on the task of taking an inventory of our back issue collection. Yes, I may be insane but I'm gonna try. I have added a link to the right under the COMICS section that will take you to the page that will list our back room inventory. It's gonna take a while but as I get a box counted I'll post it to the page.
