Hey folks, it’s crazy how time flies, but January 2, 2016 is our 13th anniversary as a comic shop. To thank all of you, we’re holding an anniversary sale from 11 AM to 8 PM on Saturday, January 2nd. Everything in the shop will be 20% off with the exception of consignment items or items previously discounted.
Last year was awesome, we had great growth in sales and in our customer base as the industry continued to impress with scores of new titles bringing in new readers and bringing old readers back as well. We gave away thousands of comics for the wildly successful Free Comic Book Day, had a hit with Local Comic Shop Day, and gave out hundreds of free titles for Halloween Comic Fest. We comic conned.
We were voted “Readers Choice” for Best Comic Shop by readers of the Phoenix New Times. We attended Image Comics’ Image Expo in San Francisco. We visited comics shops in Greece and Turkey to see a very different comic industry, but also a very familiar one.
Our afterhours programming continued to be a hit, we held three storytelling nights in collaboration with Untidy Secrets, and our Comic Book Club discussion group met 22 times(!) this year to discuss monthly picks and for longer reads such as The Invisibles and Preacher. There’s more to come this year as we hope to offer more programming at the shop, in addition to our usual engagements. Thank you to everyone for the support this year, and over the years. We hope to keep providing you all with a great selection of comics in 2016.
