Some good news, some bad news.

First the good news: We (the comic store) will be operating in a limited capacity starting next week. The book store is already open and the record store should be open any time. We should be getting new comics like normal, and we plan on filling subscriptions as usual. Since the basement is in shambles, and needs extensive remodeling work, the new comics will be displayed in either the record store or the book store in some fashion. There will be very limited space, but we hope to make the best of it.

The bad news: Any and all comics that were on hold previously have been pretty much destroyed. We also had to skip this past week, so some people will be missing issues. You can request special orders, and we will try to fill them, but we will understand if you go to another shop to fill in these holes. Also, about 50% of our back issue stock has been trashed, as well as a good portion of our graphic novels (although, most of the GNs are easily replaceable).

So, please, PLEASE come back in and support your favorite comic store next week. It won’t be perfect, but it will be something. And tell your friends!

    I’m super-stoked that Von’s will be up and running again. Comic Shops are a personal thing, and you guys rock.

    Markdowns on water-soaked books?
