Ssalefish GSO First Look #93 for 1.16.19

Posting a little late today because I was throwing some color on the homage to our Ssalefish exclusive Umbrella Academy Hotel Oblivion #1 variant by Francesco Francavilla that Chris Giarrusso drew for me as a Christmas present!*

Greensboro Comicon is really this weekend! We’re once again a co-sponsor of our hometown show, primarily presented by Ultimate Comics out of Durham, Cary & Raleigh. We’re rolling out our usual set-up, with thirty-one long boxes of $1 comics (or 20 for $10), six boxes of  $5 graphic novels (or 5 for $20), two boxes of complete sets (priced as marked), three master cases of $5 Pops (or 5 for $20), and the combined might of the GSO and Winston backwall!

Ssalefish GSO First Look #92 for 1.9.19

The thing I was most struck by when scrolling through our Instagram feed yesterday morning was just how many key books we bought and sold over 2018, and that’s just when I remembered to take pictures!

We’re happy to hunt down anything you’ve been after (there’s a Werewolf by Night #32 on that list that never made it to the sales floor, just straight on to a customer that had asked us to track it down)!

In case you ever wondered, we’re ALWAYS buying, so feel free to bring ANYTHING up here for us to look at and possible make an offer!

Despite the disclaimer jargon below, our new releases are already in-house, so no need to worry about delayed delivery due to New Years, and, as I stated last week, our hours of operation will be normal despite the holiday!

Which brings us to tomorrow’s festivities, The After Christmas Stan Lee Birthday Sale! Buy One • Get One FREE Funko Pops, Buy Two • Get One FREE graphic novels, statues and toys OR Buy Five • Get Five FREE graphic novels, statues and toys to mark what would have been Stan’s 96th birthday!

Ssalefish GSO First Look #90 for 12.26.18

Merry Christmas! Our holiday hours are as follows:

  • 12.24.18 • 11 AM - 3 PM

  • 12.25.18 • CLOSED!!!

  • 12.26.18 • Normal 8 AM - 8 PM

That’s it! Other than that, we’ll be here regular business hours, including on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day! But, next week’s new releases are what we call in the business a “skip week.” In other words, spend those gift certificates on a graphic novel, back issue or statue that you’ve had your eye on in addition to your sparse new releases and keep an eye out for a few flash sales!

I’m pumped to finally reveal our Black Friday & Small Business Saturday sales for 2018! Basically, I kept just pushing how deep our discounts were in an attempt to give Bret a heart attack, including increasing all of our back issue deals by 10% since sharing a proof of our ads with him last night, but he never said again, so here we are!
