So much news! We are open today, December 24, from 11 to 5 or so! If you need last minute presents, stop on by. We will be closed December 25, but back to regular hours Wednesday, and we WILL have new comics! Not a lot is coming out this week, but there are some big ones: The last issue of The Amazing Spider-Man, the new Brian Wood scifi volleyball series Mara, the first two parts of the Aquaman/Justice League crossover, a new superhero fight to the death in Deathmatch, plus a few more!
We will also have a special short podcast up on Wednesday with reviews (and spoilers!) for the comics coming out this week.
Then next Tuesday, January 1st, is our annual 20% off everything New Year's Day sale! So don't forget to come by and see how tired we all look! Noon to 5, all locations!
We've got another list up on our facebook page, asking for input for our Best of 2012 lists! If you have any suggestions for the best kid's comic, let us know!
The crazy Doc Ock storyline comes to an insane conclusion in the LAST ISSUE of Amazing Spider-Man ever! The story is super long, with two extra Spidey stories in the back. I cannot say more about this, but whoa! (We will review with spoilers on our next podcast.)
