Ssalefish GSO First Look #132 for 10.16.19

I never really talked about the new store logo when switched it on Facebook and Instagram back in September. Basically, as much as I love the Ben Towle image and even though I think it completely captures the spirit of the business, we needed something simpler for things like decals (coming as soon as I pick up some blue vinyl and FREE with any purchase of $25 or more) and doormats (also coming soon) that could also work in a square or circle, since that’s how most social media images are formatted.

It’s still 90 degrees outside, so it sure doesn’t seem like it, but it’s time to start thinking about Halloween, and more specifically Halloween ComicFest 2019!

Our guest of honor this year will be COPRA creator Michel Fiffe, who we’re flying in from NYC! Throughout stints on G.I. Joe (Sierra Muerte for IDW), Bloodstrike (Brutalists for Image), and All-New Ultimates (for Marvel), Fiffe’s been a tour-de-force, self-publishing one of the most compelling superhero books on the stands, and now he’s moving his efforts to Image to reach an even wider audience!

What is Marvel Comics #1000? If you shop at Ssalefish Comics in Greensboro, it’s just $5.99 instead of $9.99, that’s what it is!

Imagine that since Marvel Comics #1 in 1939, the House of Ideas had been publishing a monthly title literally called Marvel Comics for the last 80 years (approximately 960 issues, but it’s Marvel, so there HAD to be some double-shipping in there) and you get to 1,000. Marvel Comics #1000 will contain one page from each year of those eight decades. It is THE Marvel 80th anniversary celebration.

I’m pumped to announce to the world that after 2 1/2 hours on the phone yesterday and another half hour this morning, I’ve booked my perfect day at Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Those reservations and getting there for the 6 AM rope drop to hopefully ride Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run in all three positions before the sun is even up is all I can do to ensure my best possible time on Batuu!
