Over the next couple of weeks we'll be proving to you once again that Comic Book Jones is not just a place where you buy your comics. Besides a killer week in comics (which includes the beginning of Blackest Night and the newest Dark Avengers title) we'll be having another movie tailgate party and a special in-store musical performance by our friends The Lady Manners! For all the news on these events and others as well as the list of all the new books coming out this week, READ ON!
HARRY POTTER MOVIE TAILGATE PARTY
This Tuesday, July 14th we've got our next tailgate party and, as usual, it's a good one! This time we'll be repping our boy Harry Potter. So go ahead and secure your ticket to the midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and come hang with us at the store starting at 9:00 PM (you can come before if you like!) for some free food, drinks and our special tailgate sale where everything in the store will be somewhere between 10%-70& off!
GEEK BOX COMIC DISPLAY CASE RAFFLE
Alright then, on to our next raffle which will begin on Saturday, July 11th and run until Wednesday July 22nd. This time we are raffling off a beautiful display case that measures out at 36 1/2" x 24 1/2" and is perfect for displaying your comics, action figures and any type of other collectible you may have. It has double wood shelves, a glass door and retails for $224.99. Raffle tickets, as always, are only $1!
THE LADY MANNERS IN-STORE PERFORMANCE!
We're pleased to announce that on Saturday, July 18th we'll be having another in store performance, this time by Katie Ballou and Beryl Davies who make up The Lady Manners! So, come couple your comic buying experience with some great live music or just come to hang out and watch them play at no cost to you whatsoever. They'll be beginning at 7:00 PM so feel free to come to the shop and check them out!

Still don't know about our movie tailgates? Here's the deal.

If you have any other questions just ask us by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling us at (718) 448-1234.
MAGIC THE GATHERING SATURDAY TOURNAMENTS
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.
YU-GI-OH MONDAY TOURNAMENTS
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 4:00 PM 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!
COMIC BOOK JONES TUESDAY TRIVIA NIGHT
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.
