Hallo everybody!

.
1) PENGUIN RANDOM HOUSE, MARVEL COMICS PROBLEMS & ME:

As most of you are aware, MARVEL left DIAMOND COMICS DISTRIBUTORS for PENGUIN RANDOM HOUSE earlier this year. This past week was the FIRST SHIPMENT from PRH and boy, was it a mess.

Many books were too DAMAGED TO BE SOLD, resulting in small amounts or NO copies available for the stands. I have heard back from PRH and they will be trying to get replacements copies out, but it does seem like there is little to no replacement stock available. With the current state of paper stocks here in the US, it’s possible we MIGHT NOT have replacements any time soon. I will be sure to forward the information as I hear back from PRH/MARVEL.

.
2) REGULAR HOURS, COVID & YOU:

We are OPEN 11a to 6p on WEDNESDAYS, FRIDAYS & SATURDAYS.

(We are CLOSED MONDAYS, TUESDAYS, and THURSDAYS for “back of the house” work.)

MASK MANDATES are BACK! You are required to WEAR A MASK in the shop. PLEASE be sure to wear one when you come by!

.
3) I WORK FOR YOU DEPARTMENT:

Missed a copy? It’s easy to reserve comics with us: Just ask. Many books sell out each week (it’s kinda the plan with some titles, as they don’t sell as back issues), so please ask in advance so I can hold a copy for you. Or, start a pull list with me.. Or fill out a PREVIEWS each month. If you ask me before it’s released, odds are I can get it for you.

If there’s a book or item that I don’t carry, or a special order that you’re interested in – PLEASE let me know so that I can get it for you.

It’s NOT ANY EXTRA WORK OR TROUBLE, so PLEASE LET ME KNOW. It’s LITERALLY MY JOB.
