Save on Marvel #1s at Ash Ave Comics in October!

If you’ve been paying attention to Marvel’s solicits for the last few months, you have seen that Marvel is planning to introduce a wave of new series beginning in the first week of October. Many of these series are highly anticipated and feature some of the industry’s most popular creators matched with Marvel superheroes. To help deflate the costs of these titles for fans who want to check out the new #1s, we are offering a 20% discount to customers who buy all of the Marvel titles listed below.  We offer a smaller 15% off discount to customers who only want to purchase a specific week’s releases.  There will also be a large slate of variant covers for each release, including the hip-hop variants.  Please contact us if you would like to participate in this offer, or have any questions about reserving variant covers.
