What to do with all the AABC overstock? Well, offer it first to my loyal customer base before putting it into cold…er…warm storage! Ashley and I broke down two shelves of JLA overstock this morning and in its stead we placed a really nice assortment, as in 1,500 or so books, of SUPERMAN related issues. The selection includes: MAN OF STEEL, SUPERMAN/BATMAN, ALL STAR SUPERMAN, ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, and SUPERMAN. This is all new stock the Professor has culled from the backroom in the last two weeks. So bring in your want lists and have at it all for cover … Continue reading

Ok, so I have to get this missive done before running off to “spin” class to keep this 56 year old body going! Cardio, cardio and more cardio. I get my weight lifting done by hauling 50 pound boxes of comics around the store all day! Onto comic book matters, our Florida source for mostly Silver Age DC’s just sent a really nice batch of mid to late 1960’s books. Nicely represented in this collection is BATMAN and DETECTIVE, and some great condition FLASH! All will be priced tonight, and displayed tomorrow on the north wall behind the cash wrap … Continue reading

Hey Gang, I know this is starting to sound like the same old song, but I just completed another 60 or so packets to add to the store mix. I wouldn’t be adding new selections if they didn’t sell, so bare with me. Added this week were astoundingly discounted runs of FLASH (Vol 2), ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, ANIMAL MAN, DETECTIVE, and obscurities such as OUTCASTS and FRIGHT NIGHT. The collector that owned this 1,500 piece collection wasn’t much of a Marvel buff, so not much was added in that department. If you peruse the packet selection when you shop the … Continue reading

Hello all! Writing from the beautiful city of Los Angeles, Marsha and I are here to see a new theater show, produced and starred in by our son, Ben. It’s in a gorgeous area of Hollywood, containing tons of cinematic history. The air is clear today thank god, since the California fires are just about contained! We will definitely be back for new comic day, which because of the Labor Day holiday, won’t be until Thursday, Sept 10th this week. However, if you happen to stop by the store this Wednesday, last week’s deals are still in effect until 8 … Continue reading
