Ssalefish GSO First Look #24 for 9.13.17

I'd like to take the time to encourage our faithful non-subscribing customers to consider pre-ordering your books. It's absolutely free, you still get your rewards points for everything you buy, and you have the piece of mind that the books you'd like to read most will be waiting for you whenever you come by!

There's no pre-payment necessary, and you can either sign up on an ongoing basis by speaking to myself, Jay or Bret next time you're in, or you can stay ahead of the game a-la-cart by clicking your picks each week via this very website!

Ssalefish GSO First Look #23 for 9.6.17

This weekend I'll be taking off two days in a row for the first time since last Christmas and heading down to my parents' place in North Myrtle Beach. It's probably my favorite place in the world (it is for sure if you ask Carly, who claims my entire physical and emotional demeanor changes as soon as I smell the ocean air). It'll be the perfect break before a madcap stretch of events from Greensboro Comicon through New Year's!

There's gonna be a LOT going on this coming Wednesday!

First off, there's my 33rd Birthday/ 33% OFF Backstock Sale (my birthday is actually on Tuesday, but I'll gladly accept any well-wishes or goodies on New Comic Book Day)! Nothing is held back (well, except the backwall), the regular Buy 5, Get the 6th FREE deal will still be in effect, and we're putting out new books as we speak! It's our first sale on the back issue bins, and we need some room for a big changing coming up when September rolls around.

Then there's the double signing, Frog Days of Summer, from 11 AM - 6 PM with Brian "Smitty" Smith and Chris Giarrusso! We'll be celebrating Smitty's book Tree Mail winning the Kids' Comics Awards at the Ann Arbor Comic Arts Fest in June, as well as welcoming G-Man & Mini Marvels creator Chris G. to the neighborhood, having relocated to Greensboro over the 4th of July weekend!
