Thanks to all those that came down to "An Evening with Socko Jones," it truly was something special and absurd. If you missed it, we will have it posted up on the website in a few weeks but there's no way it can match the experience of actually being there. We will certainly do more in the future!
All that aside our big two year anniversary is finally here on Thursday, December 17th. It's hard to believe. A lot has happened in the past year and we feel that with each passing day we get better and better and are extrememly grateful to all of you for coming to our store, spending time with us and sharing your love of comics. We are eternally in your debt and so this day is for you. Come down, meet some awesome artists, writers and other creators, get some sketches, pick up some killer books and hang out with us for the day. After the day is done we'll be celebrating at the Cargo Cafe and would love for you to join us. All the information can be found below!
To wrap up the news for the week I would like to remind our Magic players that we are running a special anniversary sealed deck tournament on Friday, December 18th. Should be a whole lot of fun, we're expecting a good turnout. Once again, read on for more info!
