SHADOWLAND IS UNDERWAY, MTG RELEASE & PRE-RELEASE THIS WEEK!
WOW, Shadowland kicked off this past week (along with a ton of other great titles) and I'm happy to report that it will continue with Daredevil #508 being released this week, summer comic fun for all! If you still haven't picked up issue #1 and/or you haven't been following the recent Daredevil story arc, do yourself a favor and start picking it up. Scarlet #1 was another great title that I highly recommend to anybody who is a fan of Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev, it's a fantastic original story and I can't wait for the next issue.
Anyway, a great big thank you to Dark Horse Comics for sending us a whole bunch of signed lithographs and posters in honor of us winning the "Best Comic Shop in NYC" contest they hosted on Facebook. There's some really cool stuff here so make sure you come and pick one up. They are completely free and it's on a first come first serve basis.
For all you Magic the Gathering fans don't forget that our 2011 Core Set Pre-Release Party is tomorrow, Saturday, July 10th and the Release Party will be held on Friday, July 16th. For more information on this and other stuff happening at the store, keep reading!
