Hello boys and girls. As I'm sure you can see Black Friday is almost upon us. Last year was insane and we weren't even a year old. This year I expect it to be even bigger, which is why we've increased the 40% off sale to two hours instead of one! Make sure you get here early! Be advised that anything that is on hold will be put out this coming Wednesday out of fairness to everyone. If you have a pull list don't worry, you're safe and your books will be left alone. Obviously, nothing can be put on hold for Black Friday as a result of this so don't try it!

All that aside we've got a killer week coming up (the delivery will be on time on Wednesday). A lot of really good stuff including a ton of Blackest Night tie-ins (+ #5) and some of those sought after 2nd printings, New Avengers, more Spider-Man Gauntlet, JLA, Iron Man, The Goon, etc. It's hard to look forward to a better week than this. So save up those hard earned dollars, pick up your books and get ready to swing into the holidays. From all of us at CBJ, have a Happy Thanksgiving!


As I mentioned above, this is going to be big. Make sure you get here as early as you can to save the most money and assure that you get what you want before it's gone!


It's been so long since we've had a tailgate party and the one we wanted to do conflicts with out 2nd anniversary bash (Avatar) so we figured we would do one just to do one on Thursday, December 10th since it's been so damn long. So here's the deal, we're going to have "An Evening with Socko Jones" in which he'll essentially have his own talk show at the store. There will be dramatic stories, interviews, tales of love lost and an undying passion to bringing comics to the masses. So join us for this special event. We'll have free food, drinks and of course our obligatory special sale where we pick a number out of a hat and everything in the store will be anywhere between 15%-70% off! Don't miss it!


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 (yet to be determined) special sale throughout the day. We've just added some more creators, here's the full lineup:
  • Mike Cruz (Million Dollar Eyes)
  • Evan Dorkin (Beasts of Burden, Milk & Cheese)
  • Bryan J.L. Glass (Mice Templar)
  • Ken Haeser (Living Corpse)
  • Buz Hasson (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 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!


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!
