For those of you who got started on Blackest Night last week and need your fix, don't worry because the new issue of Green Lantern is coming out this week! Couple that with some big Marvel milestone issues including Amazing Spider-Man #600 and Incredible Hulk #600 and you've got one hell of a week on your hands.

There's much more than that of course and you can take a look at the rest of what's coming out by checking out the list at the bottom of the mailer. We've also got some great upcoming events including an in-store performance tomorrow (Saturday, July 18th) by the Lady Manners who will be performing for free and some movie tailgates in the coming month.

And for you Magic players we're now stocked with the new 2010 Core Set and will be getting in even more stuff on Wednesday. Don't forget to come play in the tournament every Saturday!


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!


There's still time to get in on our latest raffle which is finishing up on Wednesday, July 22nd. We are currently 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!


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 list of the movie tailgates we'll be holding during the summer:

GI Joe Rise of the Cobra - Thursday, August 6th
District 9 - Thursday, August 13th
Halloween 2 - Thursday, August 27th

Still 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 9:00 PM for some food and drinks and a special sale where we pull a percentage out of a hat, 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 hold 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!


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.
