Hey there once again boys and girls! I'm happy to announce that the website is finally up and running once again and is currently in the process of being revamped piece by piece. As we work on it you can still check out the news of the week, Gore's review of comics, other mindless blogging types and of course the list of all the new stuff coming in each and every week!

With all that said, we have a HUGE week for comics coming up on June 24th. A lot of major titles are being shipped in what is easily one of the biggest deliveries we've ever had, so make sure you check out that list! Also, we will be having our first tailgate in almost a month this Tuesday for Transformers Revenge of the Fallen!


LISTEN UP! We'll be having our next tailgate extravaganza this Tuesday, June 23rd! Don't know about our movie tailgate parties yet? Shame on you! Here's the deal: grab your ticket to the midnight showing of Transformers Revenge of the Fallen for Tuesday, June 23rd (technically Wednesday morning) and come hang out at Comic Book Jones starting at 9PM (or before if you like) for some free food, drinks and our special tailgate sale where we pick a number out of a hat, anywhere from 10%-70% OFF EVERYTHING IN THE STORE! This should be a good one, make sure you don't miss it!


As you may know we recently started doing bi-weekly raffles. Our first items were a Anakin Skywalker Force FX Lightsaber and a Darth Vader Force FX Lightsaber. From now until June 24th, we'll be raffling off the Tonner Exclusive Joker Figure. This bad boy retails for $189.99 and is a limited edition made of vinyl and hard plastic, complete with 14 points of articulated villainous movement and high-quality details including rooted, green hair and hand-painted face detail. He comes dressed in a green shirt, orange corduroy vest, purple jacket, striped trousers, a black necktie, boots with white spats, and comes with his iconic cane. Display stand included. Raffle tickets are a buck a piece. Don't miss your opportunity to win this one of a kind collectible!


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!
