Thursday, June 21st, 2018 - Join Donovan Challenger for an evening of corresponding postally with your favorite comics via letter. Every month, we'll focus on sending mail (real, physical mail) to a specific comic and we're kicking it off with SAGA. Need to talk about your feelings on WHY WOULD THEY DO THAT THING? Or WHY DID THEY DO THE OTHER THING? Or HOW DARE THEY? Or even HEY, I LIKE YOU A LOT! We know you have opinions. Time to share them with the people who are actually responsible. No more excuses! We'll have stationery and stamps, envelopes and everything else you need to take the conversation out of the store and into the mail.
Correspondence Club meets the third Thursday of each month, from 7pm to 9pm.
Wednesday, July 4th, 2018 - We're doing it again! We'll be open at Midnight to sell you copies of BATMAN #50 and CAPTAIN AMERICA #1, as well as ALL of DC Comics' and Marvel Comics' offerings for the week!
EDITED: We will now be able to sell all the product from the following publishers at Midnight: BOOM! STUDIOS, DARK HORSE, DC, IDW, IMAGE, MARVEL.
BATMAN #50 written by Tom King It's the wedding you never thought you'd see! The Batrimony is real as Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle are set to tie the knot in a can't-miss, extra-length milestone issue that will reshape Gotham City. All their friends (and a few enemies?) will be party to a comic book coupling for the ages. Superstar scribe Tom King officiates the sure-to-be-offbeat nuptials, joined by an all-star lineup of guest classic Bat-artists doffing their hats to the lucky couple in a series of pre-wedding flashback scenes sure to set the romantic mood.
CAPTAIN AMERICA #1 written by Ta-Nehisi Coates IT IS WINTER IN AMERICA. For over 70 years, he has stood in stalwart defense of our country and its people. But in the aftermath of Hydra's takeover of the nation, Captain America is a figure of controversy, carrying a tarnished shield...and a new enemy is rising! Who are the Power Elite? And how do they intend to co-opt and corrupt the symbol that is Captain America?
We will be open right at Midnight, until roughly 12:45am, and then we'll re-open at 11:00am.
Monday, July 30th, 2018 - The next meeting of CHATTINGERS, the Challengers Book Club, is for MY BOYFRIEND IS A BEAR by Pamela Ribon and Cat Farris, published by Oni Press.
Bear meets girl.
Nora has bad luck with men. When she meets an (actual) bear on a hike in the Los Angeles hills, he turns out to be the best romantic partner she's ever had! He's considerate, he's sweet, he takes care of her. But he's a bear, and winning over her friends and family is difficult. Not to mention he has to hibernate all winter. Can true love conquer all?
Through July 29th, we're offering MY BOYFRIEND IS A BEAR at 20% off! Then, on July 30th at 7pm, come back to hang out and chat with other fans about it! Snacks and cheap beer will be served.
