Jessica Jones loves her some alcohol


If you've watched Jessica Jones all the way through, then you know the titular detective has chosen a decidedly unhealthy way to try to fix her broken life: booze. She hits the bottles harder than she hits the bad guys, and she hits the bad guys pretty damn hard! Well, Buzzfeed has made a list of everything she drinks through the 13-episode series!


While most of it is just typical stuff you can buy at the store, there's one item that doubles as a very subtle Marvel Universe Easter egg. Go check it out, and give yourself an excuse to rewatch the series.

Black Friday Sales #blackfriday #blackfriday2015


FOOLED YOU.
I'm not ready to tell you the sales yet for Black Friday.

I will release all of the sales at 5PM tonight on our website and on Facebook.


Just a reminder we open at 7AM on Friday, November 27.

I'm sure there will be a line out front but we will not unlock the doors until exactly 7AM to let people in.  For those looking for the AEG Black Box, I understand we are getting somewhere between 2 and 6 copies.  It is looking like it's going to be closer to the lower number (sorry we tried to get more).

No pushing or shoving or hard feelings if you don't get one.

DOOR BUSTER sales from 7AM - 9AM.

After 9AM we will dial back the sales percent a little bit, but rest assured the sales will still be AMAZING !!

An official Civil War trailer? Well okay, if you insist!

"Legends of Tomorrow" first look

Well, not technically a first look, since there was the previous sizzle reel, but this is still something nice (and only minorly spoilery):

Creatureplica


The Creatureplica toys were listed in this month's Previews catalog on page 498. While some online stores are listing preorders, the figures are cheaper through Previews, and you won't have to pay shipping and handling charges. If you want some really cool monsters, come in and ask us to get your favorites!

New Comics On Sale This Week



Naughty or Nice ?


Santa is starting to check his list.
How can you tell if you are naughty or nice?

  • You are a subscriber with a bunch of comics that are months old and you have some other orders sitting around. - NAUGHTY

  • Not coming on Black Friday - NAUGHTY
  • Will you be coming to the store during our DOOR BUSTERS Back Friday hours? - NICE
  • No remember I just told you I'm not coming in on Black Friday - NAUGHTY
  • Will you be returning on Saturday for Local Comic Shop Day / Small Business Sat? - NICE

Please help us this holiday season and this end of the year by making sure you keep your box in good standing.  We CANNOT have old product sitting around collecting dust in customer's boxes.  We ask that you pop in and pick up your stuff at least once a month.

Have a great Thanksgiving, we'll see everyone bright and early on Black Friday (doors open at 7AM). Save the most from 7AM - 9AM.  If you miss the door buster sales don't worry we are having sales all day.  Stay tuned Wednesday afternoon / evening for the complete list of Black Friday Sales.

Don't forget we have Friday Noon Magic.  What better way to celebrate Black Friday then to shop early and then get into a Magic Draft at noon? We need at least 8 for the draft to fire.  If we don't get 8 then come and play casual.  FOIL PROMOS are available.

Finally we hope to see you back on Saturday for a totally different set of sales.  I have even knocked the prices down on our special LOCAL COMIC SHOP DAY variant covers so they will be more affordable to all.  We have very limited numbers of these so once again on Saturday shop early and shop often.

AEG Black Box for #blackfriday


Remember the AEG Black Box last year?
Wow, it was AMAZING and of course it sold out in the first minute on Black Friday.  Yes the first 60 seconds that we were open and they were ALL sold.

We are getting the 2015 Black Box Edition and once again there is an EXTREMELY LIMITED NUMBER available.

I'm sure the first people in line on Black Friday will be the people that want this box.  We open at 7AM on Friday, November 27.  This box will NOT be discounted with any other sales for the day.   We can not take holds on the box either, you must come in on Black Friday to purchase it.

Sorry only 1 box per customer also.

If we get our full order of this I may have one available for a special raffle.  More on that has the story develops.

REMEMBER - Shop with us on Black Friday, but make sure you come back for Small Business Saturday / Local Comic Shop Day which is the day after Black Friday.  We will have an entirely different set of sales going on that day.
