Food Machine 2012

Some of the War Machine and Hordes players have already started bringing in their food donations for Saturday's Annual Food Machine tournament. Good luck to all the players on Saturday and thanks for helping make this annual event a huge success every year.

Special thanks to the Magic, HeroClix and D&D players who also brought cans in for the food drive.

MARVEL NOW - Indestructible Hulk #1


I'll be honest, I've never been a huge fan of the Hulk. Especially recently, I've tried reading some Red Hulk and some Hulk by Marc Silvestri. I still could not get into it. However I worked Tuesday night and decided to give the Marvel Now title - INDESTRUCTIBLE HULK #1 a try.

I was pleasantly surprised. I like the direction they are taking and with guest appearances by Maria Hill and Agent Coulson (yeah you knew he wasn't really dead) I'm thinking about adding it to my monthly pull list.

So pop in, it's the perfect time to add it to your pull list.

Amazing Spider-man #698 (NO SPOILERS) !!


Wow. I just read Amazing Spider-man #698. What a twist !!
This issue will probably sell out by close of business Wednesday.
As always the line starts to the left of the front door and we open at 11AM sharp. You do not want to miss this issue.

Now would also be a good time to let us know if you want us to save a copy of #699, 699.1 and #700 for you.

FoodMachine - A Charity Tournament to Benefit the Central PA Food Bank

Just a quick reminder that Comic Store West will be hosting a Warmachine and Hordes food drive event this Saturday.  Even if you can't play or don't play those games we will be happy to receive your donations and make sure that they get to hungry people in our region that need them.

Do not bring any items that require refrigeration before opening.
Cans containing significant proportions of meat or fish will count double toward earning tokens. They do not count double in determining our standing versus other stores.
All determination of the token value of a given food item will be determined by the TO and CSW staff at the time of donation and is not subject to debate.

The following items are considered the most desirable by the food bank, so please keep this in mind when shopping:
-Canned tuna
-Canned meats and stews
-Soup
-Peanut butter
-Canned fruits and vegetables
-Packaged meals
-Packaged pasta and rice
-Canned and dried beans
-Pure fruit and vegetable juices
