Next Saturday, May 3rd, is Free Comic Book Day, and we will be participating! Since we got into the comics line very recently, we were not able to get all the books available, and only limited quantities of those that we could order, but we will have several titles available for free to anyone who wants them (though we do ask that you only take books you are interested in). You can find the full listing of books at http://www.freecomicbookday.com/Home/1/1/27/981
We should begin receiving our regular shipments of weekly comics starting May 7th, and are expanding our selection of graphic novels. If your impression of comics is simply superheroes, you might want to take a look at what we have to offer. Sure, there are superhero comics galore, but the medium isn’t limited to just one genre. You can even see the variety of stories among the first wave of graphic novels that we’ve already brought in, including such books as Fables, 100 Bullets, Saga The Strain.
You can guarantee getting your titles each month by joining our Pull and Hold subscription service. There is no charge for using this service, and we hold the books you want until your come in to pick them up! There are other benefits to the P&H service besides guaranteeing getting your books. For starters, if you “subscribe” to at least 10 books per month and keep your purchases current you will get the monthly Previews magazine for free. Previews is a GIANT (500+) page catalog that lists all the upcoming products for about two months out, giving you the opportunity to change your orders if something changes or you see a title that you want to add. It also contains more item than just comics, including action figures, collectibles, posters and more, all of which we can order for you. Additionally, when we have access to special variants or limited editions, as a P&H customer you will be given first access to these items as a reward for keeping your books current.
We are very excited to be bringing comics to the local community, as this has been something that we have wanted to branch into since we opened. It is an amazing opportunity, and we look forward to providing you with the best in comic entertainment for years to come.
