Wow what a week! Don't you love it when every Marvel book in existence comes out on the same day? Insanity! Anyway, this week looks to pack a punch too. Steve Rogers is back and Batman & Robin continues along with issue #2. Throw in some Green Lantern and Fantastic Four and you've got yourself one hell of a week! This week we're also announcing another raffle as well as a list of this summer's movie tailgates, so don't miss it! For all that and a complete list of all the stuff we're getting in on Wednesday, keep reading!


Oh joy! Another raffle for all you silly peeps will begin on Saturday, June 27th! This time we'll be raffling off the Bowen designed Stealth Iron Man Statue. This is a beautiful piece and easily one of my favorite statues we have in stock. The pose is fantastic and it just looks great in general. This bad boy retails for $179.99 and can possibly be yours with the purchase of a raffle ticket for just $1! The raffle will begin on Saturday and end on Wednesday July 8th.


We've got some great movies coming along in the summer months and we'd love nothing more than for you to join us for our midnight movie tailgates. Here's the preliminary list of the movie tailgates we'll be holding during the summer:

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince - Tuesday, July 14th
GI Joe Rise of the Cobra - Thursday, August 6th
District 9 - Thursday, August 13th
Halloween 2 - Thursday, August 27th

Don't know about our movie tailgates? Here's the deal. Grab your ticket to the movie's opening midnight showing and then come down to the store at around 9PM for some food and drinks and a special sale where we pull out a percentage, anywhere from 10%-70% OFF EVERYTHING IN THE STORE! If you have any other questions just ask us by e-mailing or calling us at (718) 448-1234.


Taking place on Saturdays at 3:00 PM, come join us for our weekly Magic the Gathering tournaments. Play is open to all! If you don't know how to play come on by and we'll gladly teach you! Entry fees for the tournament consists of a purchase of a couple of booster packs or tournament/starter pack. If you're interested don't hesitate to come on down and join us.


You asked for it, you got it! Every Monday we'll be holding Yu-Gi-Oh card tournaments. The formula is very similar to our Magic tournaments. They take place every Monday at around 4PM and the entry fee is one booster pack of your choice. Prizes will be a couple of booster packs or a starter/tournament pack. If you don't know how to play come down anyway and we'll teach you!


Tuesday is Trivia night! The rules are simple and it's a lot of fun. Come down to the store around 6:00 PM for the sign up and choose to play by yourself or with a team (there is no limit to the amount of players on a team). There is a $2 buy in per person, all of the money going to the winning team. At 7:00 PM we'll begin the first of five rounds, each round containing 10 questions. Questions will generally hover around comic, sci-fi, TV, movie and other related trivia. After each round, points will be tallied up by the Quiz Master for that day and then we'll move on to the next round. At the end of the fifth round a winner will be crowned trivia champion. It's a ton of fun and I promise you that if you come once you'll want to come each and every week.


We're still your friends right? So then add Comic Book Jones on Facebook! We know you use it!
