Join us for an IN-STORE EVENT with artist MITCH GERADS!

We’re excited to announce that MITCH GERADS, celebrated Eisner award-winning artist of Strange Adventures, Mister Miracle, and Sheriff of Babylon, will be joining us for an in-store event on SATURDAY, 1/29 from 2:00-4:00 pm! Mr. Gerads’ visit coincides with the release of his latest work, the Batman/Catwoman Holiday Special, for which he stepped in to complete the story begun by his friend John Paul Leon before Mr. Leon’s tragic passing last year. Mr. Gerads will be signing copies of that issue and other books featuring his art.

This will be our first in-store event since the onset of the global pandemic, and we hope to see you all there. Please note that if you plan to attend, we ask that you please respect the following requests:

      1.  All attendees must wear masks. This is not up for debate. Guests without masks will be barred from entry. If we can see your nose, you are wearing your mask wrong.
      2. You may bring books from your collection for Mr. Gerads to sign, but all attendees are required to purchase a copy of the Batman/Catwoman Holiday Special to participate. Pre-orders are available here.
      3. All attendees must challenge and defeat Mr. Gerads in a contest of wrestling before he will autograph your books. You must pin Mr. Gerads until the count of three atop a makeshift mat we have constructed out of old Deathmate back issues before you are deemed worthy of his signature. Edit: Owner Drew has just informed us that there will be no mandatory wrestling match requirement as a condition of an audience with Mr. Gerads, and, indeed, any attendees who challenge Mr. Gerads physically or otherwise will be ejected from the store immediately. We regret this error.
      4. The event will end promptly at 4:00 pm, or at Mr. Gerads’ discretion. Don’t be late!

Pre-order Cut-Off Dates for 12/13/21

Back and more ready to rip up all your X-Men than ever.

The weekend approaches! What could be finer? A chance to throw off the cares of the week and turn our thoughts to higher things without petty concerns of the workplace to weigh us down. Thoughts like:

  • Am I in this thing with King Shark to the limit?
  • Should I roll the dice on Pantha? What if it lets me down? Am I brave enough to be vulnerable?
  • Is two issues enough to decide whether or not I like Newbern, or will issue 3 point the way? Do I trust myself? Can I trust myself?

No pressure, but come up with those answers toot suite because Monday, 12/13 at 5:00 pm MST is your last chance to pre-order the following books before final order cut-off:

UPDATE (11/22/2021): We have some good news and some bad news. First the bad news: The final order cut-off date has passed for Nightwing #87, and so we’ve taken its page down for now lest we accidentally oversell the issue and wind up on the business end of some terse e-mail exchanges with people who paid good money to not get their Nightwing comic.

But the good news is, we were so pleased with the results of this pre-order experiment that we’ve made not only Nightwing #88 available for pre-order, but the entire range of DC Comics solicited for January and beyond! And if that’s not enough, you can also pre-order comics from Marvel, Image, Dynamite, and Scout, with more of your favorite publishers to come in the days ahead!

Thanks so much for supporting Ash Avenue Comics!

Our pre-order initiative for Batman #118’s Todd McFarlane homage variant was so successful, we’ve decided to push our luck and try it with December’s Nightwing #87! You may well ask, what’s so special about Nightwing #87, every issue of Nightwing flies off the shelves as it is and why do I not already have a pull list at Ash Avenue Comics to make sure that I get my copy every month? And we would say to you, My good friend, these are fair hypothetical questions that deserves fair hypothetical answers.

It’s because Nightwing #87 is a bravura effort by artist Bruno Redondo to tell a 22-page comic book story as one continuous image—one giant, 22-page splash image through which he unfolds the story sequentially! You’ve never seen anything like it—because no one has! Everyone’s going to be talking about it, so strike a blow against FOMO and reserve your copy today! Reserve lots of copies for your loved ones, too, they make great holiday gifts!
