Best selling graphic novels.

June 18, 2006

Here are the three best-selling graphic novels of the past few weeks. I can vouch for them all – they’re good and cheap.

ACTION PHILOSOPHERS: GIANT-SIZE THING VOL. 1 TP (Evil Twin) – A kind of Philosphy For Dummies comic that is pretty funny and you learn something at the same time. This volume collects the first three sold-out issues and is only $6.95. (That’s $2 dollars cheaper than buying the individual comics!)

DMZ VOL. 1 TP (Vertigo) – This isn’t the first time I’ve talked about this book on here, but if you still haven’t caught on, then now is the perfect time. Only 10 bucks and it collects the first story line of a future civil war-torn America.

FIVE FISTS OF SCIENCE GN (Image) – An original graphic novel that pits Mark Twain and Nikola Tesla against and evil Thomas Edison and J.P. Morgan. If you liked LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, then you should check this book out.

If we are ever sold out of these books, or any of our other graphic novels, just put in a reorder request with us. There’s no extra charge and subscribers still get their 15% discount!


A day in the life…

June 18, 2006

Ever wondered what it’s like to run a comic shop? Check out this article. While it’s not exactly the same as what I go through (that shop is in San Fransico and orders triple what we do), it’s pretty close. Every time I think I’ve got comic orders down to a science, something like 52 (or CIVIL WAR) comes along and mucks it up.

Don’t feel sorry for me though, I brought it upon myself.

Ultimate Off-Schedule

June 6, 2006

For those of you that are waiting for Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk and Ultimates 2 #12, well, you can keep on waiting. According to Newsarama, both have been pushed back: July 12 and August 2, respectively. I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of these late books.
