Attention Magic players.
If you are playing in tomorrow's midnight pre-release event please do not plan on showing up early.
Plan on arriving at 11PM.
We have other gaming going on and will probably not have room for you until 11PM.
If you are reading this and are not a Magic player, the store will remain open over night Friday in order to host a Magic Pre-Release Event. So if you get the urge to but comics at 2AM Saturday morning well come on in.
This is an experiment, wish me luck.
If you come in and I am asleep please make sure you throw a blanket over me.
That is all for now.

Do you remember a few years back, when DC did their whole Wednesday Comics thing? It was a vintage throwback to the days when newspaper comic strips would each get an entire page to themselves on Sundays - bright colors, lush artwork, ongoing serialized stories that you'd have to wait an entire week to see paid off... it's what your grandparents called entertainment.
Anyway, Wednesday Comics was DC's way of homaging comicbooks' newspapery roots. A new issue came out every week for 12 weeks, printed on a full-sized, 14" x 20" sheet of newsprint. It was a fun little experiment, with some really cool stories by amazing creators: you've got a Batman tale by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso, the guys behind 100 Bullets; Kamandi, the Last Boy on Earth, by Dave Gibbons (Watchmen) and Ryan Sook; a retro Teen Titans story by Eddie Berganza and Sean Galloway; Supergirl by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner; lots of outstanding stuff!
Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, the Flash, Hawkman. Paul Pope, Walt Simonson, Brian Stelfreeze, Lee Bermejo, Kurt Busiek, Michael Allred, Neil Gaiman, the legendary Joe Kubert. That's just a sampling of the characters and creators involved in Wednesday Comics.
Frankly, it was a terrific project. It was great in the weekly issues, but it's even better in TPB form. Not only do you get all 12 comics collected in order, you also get an entire section of notes, sketches, and other previously unseen material. If I didn't already own all the Wednesday Comics issues, I'd be all over this book!
But here's what's really great: we currently have a copy of the fancy hardcover available at 50% off the cover price. It's a big, lush book full of beautiful art. If you really wanted to, you could cut pages out and frame them, and you'd still get your money's worth for it! So don't worry about what DC's Rebirth might bring, come pick up this vintage bargain today and take home a visual treat.

Our first midnight release.
York, PA's only midnight release event.
Registration starts at 11pm.
Decks get handed out at midnight.
$25 for early sign-up / $30 at the door (if we have space).
We are only allowing 30 players for the midnight release so sign-up today.
The movie was good but DC has a long way to go before they are close to Marvel movies.
Ant-Man, a lower budget, 2nd tier Marvel movie was better.
Ben Affleck was THE BEST BATMAN EVER but even he could not save the poor story and terrible villain(s).
