A huge THANK YOU to everyone that made this yet another aWeSoMe Free Comic Book Day! It was an incredible day and we blew through a huge amount of free comics. We gave away so many books that we’re going to increase our orders for next year by at least 25%!

As I was uploading the pictures it hit me why we not only host Free Comic Book Day, but also why we opened the shop nearly 5 years ago:  Seeing all the smiling faces and having a place where people feel comfortable to be who they are is what it’s all about.

Thanks again, we’re proud to be your local comic book store.

Avengers Infinity War: Will it live up to the hype?

It used amaze me when I would hear about a recent comic book movie being described as not good, or actually hearing someone say, ‘it stinks!’ I know it’s an age thing (rapidly approaching 50), I grew up watching Bill Bixby’s and Lou Ferrigno’s The Hulk. There’s definitely something to be said for the anachronistic feel when you go back and watch some of the 70’s and 80’s ‘superhero’ shows/movies, but they were slow moving and the graphics ‘stunk’. For me, Blade with Wesley Snipes was the first time I really thought, ‘wow, now this is a good comic book movie.’ Blade came out in 1998, fast forward 20 years and we’re about to witness a 10-year Marvel Cinematic Universe plan reach its climax. If I compare what I grew up with against even a current ‘flop’, like Suicide Squad, it’s no contest. The current ‘flop’ is still visually stunning and far surpasses Lee Majors running in slow motion.

Considering everything, maybe some of these current movies DO stink. Perhaps comparing movies to what I grew up with is just an old-timers problem. I suppose it’s important to compare the current super-hero movies to other current super-hero movies and not the under-funded, graphically challenged shows/movies of the 80’s and 90’s. I will go into movies with a more discerning eye, which I will do this Friday as I’ll finally get so see Thanos do what he is meant to do, kill and destroy.
