Ssalefish GSO First Look #87 for 12.5.18
I’m glad everyone enjoyed the Black Friday & Small Business Saturday sales last weekend! We’ve fully re-stocked all of the graphic novels that you guys picked up, but it will take us a couple of week to recover from being cleaned out of every Dragonball figurine we had on hand and John’s record-setting Buy 6 Get 6 Free statue purchase!
That’s it for markdowns through Christmas, but we’ll probably do something for the week of December 26th due to the “skip week” nature of new releases, so get though gift certificates ready!
I know I plugged it last year as well, but the Elon University Festival of Holiday Lights is this coming Tuesday, December 4th at 6:30. Luminaries all around the beautiful campus, Christmas carols, FREE hot chocolate and apple cider, and great eating at The Root Trackside, Mediterranean Deli, Pandora’s Pies, The Oak House, or Tangent Tacos. Much more low-key that Greensboro’s Festival of Lights this Friday, which I will also be attending.
The following titles are scheduled to ship on Wednesday, December 5th excluding some re-orders and providing nothing changes by the time the final invoice arrives on Monday:

Defenders Immortal Hulk #1 - the first in a series of one-shots focusing on the team comprised of the Hulk, obviously, Namor the Sub-mariner, the Silver Surfer and Doctor Strange!
Defenders Namor #1 - why wait for part 2?!
Die #1 - Stephanie Hans brings her gorgeous work to the interiors of a comic for the first time that I can remember since Journey into Mystery with Kid Loki, described by series co-creator Kieron Gillen as “Goth Jumanji!”
