Hallo everybody!

 

1) BOOKS ARE PULLED AND AVAILABLE FOR SALE!

HUZZAH! Books have been pulled for subscribers and are out for sale. THANK YOU for your patience this morning!

Another week, another (small) problem. 2020 RULES are still in full effect, people.

DIAMOND COMICS has informed me that I can expect books from them to be delivered ONE DAY LATE this week.

As is becoming the new normal, I will work as hard as I can to get them out as quickly as possible this week and will inform you all via the usual avenues (this website, Twitter and Instagram).

Hey, on the PLUS SIDE, we should have the DC COMICS out for sale on WEDNESDAY when we open.

 

2) CURRENT HOURS:

We are currently OPEN 3 days a week, from 11a to 6p on WEDNESDAYS, FRIDAYS & SATURDAYS.

PLEASE be sure to wear your MASK at all times in-store and keep a respectful safe distance from your fellow shoppers. The Alameda County Health Department requirements for SOCIAL DISTANCING and MASKS are still in full effect at this time and we don’t want anyone getting sick.

The current ALAMEDA COUNTY guidance allows us to operate at only 25% CAPACITY for indoor retail sales to help in reducing the spread of COVID-19. We are observing the mandates and will limit folks as needed. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

If for any reason you cannot or do not want to come into the shop, I am still offering CURBSIDE PICKUP, DELIVERY or MAIL ORDER options. PLEASE let me know how I can accommodate your needs.

 

3) FREE COMIC BOOK DAY IS DEAD! LONG LIVE FREE COMIC BOOK SUMMER 1 WEEK LEFT!

Obviously, we all missed FREE COMIC BOOK DAY this MAY as we were in the middle of the BIG SHUT DOWN. The powers that be have decided that we will have a FREE COMIC BOOK SUMMER instead.

FREE COMIC BOOK SUMMER will now be a 9-WEEK EVENT, already in progress and ending the week of 9 SEPTEMBER.

Be sure to come in for your books early as QUANTITIES ARE LIMITED.
