I'll let the flier do the talking here. Make sure not to miss this once a year event. I promise you that you won't be seeing anything on this scale until next November!


Alright, the rental program is finally in full force! We here at Comic Book Jones are now giving you the option of renting graphic novels and trade paperbacks. It's a very simple system and we hope that you become a part of it and help it grow into something great. This is meant as a way to get you into books you wouldn't normally read, try stuff before you buy and/or catch up on a series you might be behind on.

Here's the breakdown of how it all works. All you have to do is pay $20 to join. With your initial membership you receive 10 points. All rentable books have a point value assigned to them depending on their monetary value. All rentals are for 3 days. When you've used up all your points you can buy more. The more points you buy at once, the more points you'll get for your money. So, with that said:

$5 - 6 points
$10 - 12 points
$15 - 18 points
$20 - 26 points
$25 - 32 points
$30 - 40 points
$35 - 46 points
$40 - 54 points
$45 - 60 points
$50 - 68 points

If you find that you like a book so much that you have to buy it, get a load of this - the cost of the rental will be deducted from a BRAND NEW COPY! How awesome is that?

In addition, if you have any old trade paperbacks, graphic novels or collections you don't want just bring them in and you will receive points towards the rental program. As time goes on we'll have a large selection of books for you to rent so help yourself out by helping us and bring your old crummy books to the shop!


Now that the Batgirl lithograph has found a new home its time to move on to the next one. We return once again to giving YOU the option of picking what you like. This week we'll be raffling off any three (3) Marvel Masterworks or DC Archive hardcover books that you choose. Any combination is fine! For those unfamiliar with these books they are the ultra classy, beautifully presented hardcovers that line the top of the store. Essentially, they are older stories presented in a remastered format and go for $49.99 a pop. SO, that means you'll be getting a prize worth around $150! Not too bad if I do say so myself, as always tickets are just $1 and you can buy as many as you like.


Thursday, December 17th marks our two year anniversary. Last year's event was huge and this year its going to be even bigger! The first phase of the day begins at the store where we'll be having a killer signing and a special (yet to be determined) sale throughout the day. So far we've got down the following:
  • Evan Dorkin (Beasts of Burden, Milk & Cheese)
  • Ken Haeser (Living Corpse)
  • Mike Lilly (Black Terror, Detective Comics, Nightwing)
  • Stephen Lindsay (Ham & Eggs, Jesus Hates Zombies)
  • Lauren Monardo (Ham & Eggs, Venture Bros.)
  • Alex Robinson (A Kidnapped Santa Claus, Box Office Poison)
The list may grow because we're still in talks with other creators to see who can come down, we'll keep you posted! The day doesn't end there though! Once we close our doors for the evening we will then be embarking to Cargo Cafe for a couple of drinks and celebratory tomfoolery so if you're of age make sure you come down and hang with us. As we get more information on this special day we'll be sure to send it to ya!


We're very pleased to announce that our featured artist of the month is Evan Dorkin, here's a little bio we set up and keep in mind that all the books he's worked on, including the incredible Beasts of Burden is 20% off. That includes comics and graphic novels! Here's a quick look at his work:
  • Homegrown Staten Island artist and writer
  • Creator of Milk and Cheese and Dork Comics
  • Recipient of several Eisner awards
  • Worked on many animated shows including Space Ghost Coast to Coast and Yo Gabba Gabba
  • His new mini series, Beast of Burden (alongside artist Jill Thompson) is one of Dark Horse's best sellers
