Star Wars trailer debuts

That was just posted this morning. And what's even cooler is that in less than a day, it inspired artist Phil Noto to create this awesome piece celebrating it:


If you're getting hyped for new Star Wars, remember that now is the perfect time to subscribe to Marvel's upcoming comic. You know you're going to buy it, so you might as well guarantee yourself a copy by subscribing.

Happy Thanksgiving / FRIDAY Sale Update

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

A few quick updates regarding our Black Friday / Merry Krampus sale going on all day tomorrow.

1) Sales discounts do not apply on new product we just received in this week.

2) No rain checks.

3) Discounts do not stack.

4) On games that are already discounted (with a x% off sticker) we will take an additional 10% off. In other words for a game with a 25% off sticker you will receive 35% off the game (25%+10%).

5) RPG games and comics are NOT on sale tomorrow.

6) The BLACK FRIDAY EXCLUSIVE ITEMS are Extremely Limited. We actually found out late yesterday we got shorted on some. We have the exclusive Magic playmats and the AEG black box but we will sell out VERY quickly.

7) As always, no pushing or shoving. We open at 7am tomorrow. With the biggest discounts from 7 until 11. The after 11 sales will still be awesome so if you overslept you can still get some good deals.

8) Last sale of the year for us so make sure you get all the games you until our first big sale in 2015.

Scott and I were bored WEDNESDAY with the snow and we opened one.

I have a video of the opening but I'm not gonna post it until tomorrow 😃

HOLY CHRISTMAS IT IS AWESOME !!

BLACK FRIDAY EXCLSUIVE - Magic Playmat

Exclusive BLACK FRIDAY only Magic playmat.
Very limited quantities, only available on BLACK FRIDAY.

See you early on Friday for our big sale.

AEG BLACK BOX - Only available on BLACK FRIDAY


Need another reason to come on Black Friday?
The AEG Black Box will be available for only $49.95 (no the sales of the day do not count towards this).
We have very, very limited quantities available.

The retail value of the box is over $100.
It's a mystery (as of now) what the box contains.
Rumor has it that 3 of the 4 games are NEW and 1 may be a current game they sell but that's all I know.

Oh and on top of all of that now I hear every box contains different games.

Comic Store West Changes Are Coming....

Changes and some new exciting things are coming to Comic Store West in 2015.
We will be revealing the changes over the next several weeks so keep checking back.

The first new thing that we are planning in 2015 is that we are looking to have a booth at Baltimore Comic Con. I've discussed this with our sister store The Comic Store in Lancaster and it sounds like we will be doing a joint booth with BACK ISSUES BY THE POUND (among other things).  So if you ever wanted to go to Baltimore Comic Con and haven't you should consider going in 2015 to see us and support us.  This is a pretty big undertaking so I've got lots of planning to do but have 9 months to do it so wish us luck and look for us in Baltimore later next year.

I've got bigger updates coming soon.






CLOSED FOR TURKEY DAY



Don't forget that on Thursday, November 27 we will be closed for TURKEY DAY.
See you early on Friday for our Black Friday / Krampus Day Sale.

Katie Cook draws Deadpool

That's right, Katie Cook - writer of My Little Pony, artist of cute little things - drew Marvel's resident psychotic mercenary:


Amusingly enough, both those books came out this week, too: we have the newest issues of both My Little Pony and Deadpool as of this past Wednesday.

If you want to read them both? That's okay by us! Comic Store West is a judgement-free zone; we won't make you choose one or the other. Whether you enjoy the comic with the off-beat, fourth-wall-breaking sense of humor and a bunch of clever, pop culture Easter eggs, or if you enjoy Deadpool, we'll bravely let you give us money for it.

Introducing THE sensational character find of 2014!

A panel from Loki: Agent of Asgard #8, on sale today:


Leaving aside "The Tosser" for now, how awesome is it that the Marvel Universe not only has (at least) three juggling-themed villains, but that one of them is named "Chuck Stuff"?

"Hi, nice to meet you, I'm Chuck - Jan and Bradley Stuff's son." CHUCK STUFF!

Loki: Agent of Asgard is a pretty fun book. You should give it a try!

Foodmachine 2014



In this season of Thanksgiving, it is important to remember that not everyone in our community is blessed with the bounty that so many of us share. Studies show that one in seven households may not always have enough to eat. It?s time to do something about that.

It's time to crush hunger, one game at a time.

Comic Store West is proud to again host Foodmachine, a charity tournament to benefit the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank.

This how it works:
For every can of food you bring to the event (minus the 10-can registration fee) you will receive a token. During the tournament you will be able to ?cheat? in specific ways by spending tokens. Specific 'cheats' are outlined below.

As you might guess, this isn't a balanced, competitive tournament. This is a day of fun that will help others in need.

Other tournament info:

• Bring one (1) 50pt army list, either Warmachine or Hordes.
• Painted armies are not required.
• Casual Time Limits will be used (Base match length: 120 min; Turn Length: 12 min; No Time Extensions)
• A Mix of Foodmachine 2014 and Steamroller 2014 scenarios will be used
• The event will be either 3 or 4 rounds, depending on attendance.
• If there is no clear winner at the end, the winner will be the person with the best record and the highest number of scenario victories.


“Breaking the Rules”
At any point during a game, a player may donate a canned good to create an in-game effect. These canned goods are in addition to any canned goods that were donated for the registration fee. (Exact rules and donation costs are TBD)

Times:
10:00 Registration begins
10:45 Pairings begin
11:00 Dice Roll
RSVP

Cards Against Humanity knows the truth!


Remember, every Tuesday is Game Night, when you can come in and try out our selection of board games and card games for free. Also, we have Cards Against Humanity in stock, so you have a chance to create that matching pair, or many, many more.

Come in and get your bricks of FLASH to score either a guaranteed CHASE or PRIME figure.

Star Wars Armada Reservations and Pre-Orders Now


Star Wars Armada is coming.
Now accepting reservations and pre-orders.
All Wave 1 ships have been announced (see here).

Take advantage of our pre-order special and save 20%.

IMPORTANT - This is a Fantasy Flight Game, which means I expect a quick sell out both at the store and at the distribution level.  It also means that it could be some time until FFG reprints the game (I'm just going by FFG history).

Pre-orders get priority over reservations in the event of allocation (which also happens a lot with FFG games).
