News & Events for 8/4/10

Shadowland & Brightest Day continues, Deadpool #1000!

Ahoy hoy! How is everyone doing this fine morning/afternoon/evening (whenever you happen to be reading this)? Oh, why we are splendid! Thank you for keeping us in mind. A few little highlights from this week and then it's on to all the news and new books coming at you this week.

First and foremost, a special thank you to John and Danielle Ruiz, Lou Manna, and Robert Agnello for coming down for their respective book signings. We hope you enjoyed their company as much as we did. Secondly, we would also like to congratulate local artist Evan Dorkin and his co-creator Jill Thompson on winning the Eisner award for their work on Beasts of Burden at this year's San Diego Comic Con. Congrats! If you haven't picked up their book yet, get on it! It's now available in a beautiful hardcover collection for only $19.99 and totally worth it!

Anyways, there are some great books coming out this week so make sure you survey the list on the right carefully before making your choices and remember that if you can't make it to the store week to week we do offer a pull list service. And, of course, special orders are always welcome out of the Previews catalog (the new one just came out this past week) so don't be afraid to ask us to order something for you. Have a great weekend and we'll see you at the shop!



One of the biggest books of the last few years is finally getting the big screen treatment and in honor of this momentous occasion we'll be having another of our very wonderful tailgate parties! The movie in question? Scott Pilgrim vs. the World! If you haven't read this epic 6 part series then you're really doing yourself a disservice. This is easily one of the most fun books to come out in a long time and I can't wait to see if this film can capture the book's magic.

SO, with that said, the event will be kicking off on Thursday, August 12th @ 9PM. All you have to do is get your ticket for the midnight showing of the movie that night and then come down to the store for some free food, drinks and of course our special sale where everything in the store will be between 15% - 70% off! This is going to be one of the best ones we've ever had, I can feel it in my bones I tells ya! So make sure you don't miss it!


It's been a few months since we've turned Comic Book Jones into a music venue but I'm happy to report that on Friday, August 13th starting @ 9pm we'll be welcoming back Martin Rivas for a special in-store performance in celebration of his newest EP, The Convalescence. For those of you who don't know Martin Rivas is Socko's brother and he's an extremely talented singer and musician. If you don't believe me, come and see for yourself! His newest record is fantastic and you'll be able to hear a ton of his stuff if you come and join us.

We'll be running this event just like a tailgate party with free food and drinks and a special sale so make sure you come down to the store, pick up a copy of the record, hang out and let Marty speak to your soul through his music!
