Ssalefish GSO First Look #109 for 5.8.19

Happy Free Comic Book Day Eve Eve! At this point I think we’ve empowered everyone with all of the knowledge we can about who’s coming, when to be here, what to expect, what you can get for free, and what you can buy via our Instagram countdown and Facebook event page!  All that’s left to do now is grab a friend or family member, come on out, and marvel at the fact that Lois is the cutest X-Wing pilot ever, in the Rebellion OR the Resistance!

Ssalefish GSO First Look #107 for 4.24.19

I was impressed this week, both by the positive public reaction to Colton being force-choked for an undisclosed slight against me, and the quality of the Black Series Darth Vader helmet replica from Hasbro! That and the new aluminum Factory X Captain America shield at the back have renewed my love of props, so we’ll once again have the Marvel Legends Infinity Gauntlet, Black Panther helmet, and Ant-Man helmet back in stock on Tuesday, and we’ll be carrying the Luke Skywalker X-Wing helmet and more moving forward!

As usual this time of year, there’s a LOT going on in the world of comics! On Monday we announced our plans for Free Comic Book Day 2019, auspiciously taking place on Saturday, May 4th this year, Star Wars Day (“May the 4th be with you!”)! Then moments ago I announced our FCBD lead-in signing with Chris Giarrusso on Wednesday, May 1st for his new book Hashtag: Danger from Ahoy Comics! Add to that premiere events for Avengers Endgame at the AMC Classic 18 on Thursday, April 25th and the RED Cinemas on Friday, April 26th and book drops at Pilot Elementary on Monday, April 29th and Sedgefield Elementary on Tuesday, April 30th and you’ve got yourself a stew going!

I’m looking forward to seeing all of you guys out at Twin City Comic Con this Sunday! I think we put on the biggest and best little show in the state, and even though it’s a long day from sun-up to sundown, it’s great to have such a perfect mix of creators and dealers, fans and pros, accessible to everyone with very little stress on the patron’s part! And you can’t get much better for a 2nd anniversary party!

Ssalefish GSO First Look #101 for 3.13.19

Normally we would go over to our neighbors at the AMC Classic 18 on Koger Boulevard for the release of a new Marvel movie and pass out free coinciding comics, but for the first time in the two years we’ve been open, they’re not getting the new Marvel movie! That plus the distinguished competition having the only other theater on this side of town covered means that here at the shop (while supplies last) we’ll be giving away a reprint of the first issue of Kelly Sue DeConnick’s character-defining run and a preview book with glimpses at the current ongoing series, the Life of Captain Marvel origin story, and Ms. Marvel’s adventures in Marvel Rising.
