We’ll be participating in Montgomery County Association of Realtors (MCAR) first annual REALTORS Night Out on Thursday, September 12, and will stay open until 8pm. Whether you’re a realtor or not, stop by, say hello, and do a little shopping!
The month of September is DC’s Villains Month, and so far, we’re digging it!
I just read two of this month’s villains comic and both were great. They’re straight origin stories. I knew nothing about Count Vertigo, so knowing his origin will add to my reading of the Green Arrow series. The Joker story touched a bit on Joker’s childhood and revealed part of the reason for Joker’s insanity.
Whether you’re looking to enhance the current series you’re reading or to enjoy a stand alone story, these books are great!
Hello, Super Friends!
We hope you’re enjoying the last few weeks of summer and looking forward to a fun fall. We’ve been busy at the shop since we opened in June, adding and learning about new products, scheduling and hosting events, and the best part, getting to know all the great people who walk through our doors 🙂
A couple announcements for today:
* Today is new comic day and all of this week’s books will be on the shelf by 1pm.
* Tonight is game night, starting at 6pm; bring whatever you’d like to play or come in and learn a new game.

What’s a pull list?
If you’ve been in the shop, you’ve likely heard someone talking about a “pull list.” Whether you’ve been reading comic books for a week or a decade, a pull list is a great tool for any comic book fan. A pull list is just what it sounds like: A list of the comic books you’d like us to pull for you from our shipment each week. It’s like a subscription of your favorite reads.
The primary benefit of maintaining a pull list is not missing an issue in a series that you’re reading. When we get our books in, we fill the pull lists before anything hits the shelves, guaranteeing that you’ll have a copy even if we sell out. Another benefit is not having to come into the shop every Wednesday and not having to remember which of your favorite books are coming out each week. We’ll keep your pull list items behind the counter and you can pick them up whenever you’re in the shop. Finally, when you have a pull list, we’re better able to make personalized recommendations and suggestions for your reading pleasure!
You can put together your pull list the next time you’re in the shop — just stop by the counter and we’ll get you all set up. Call us at (610) 222-9200 or email us with any questions.
What we’re reading this morning: Kurt Busiek and Brent Anderson‘s Astro City #1 — which finally found a new home at Vertigo. Featuring new and old characters, this book is a great opportunity to jump into the series. The narration and humor makes this a fresh and fun read. In addition to adults, we think teens/young adults will also particularly like this one. Stop in for your copy!
