Huge Week Ahead, Double Tailgate Set For the End of the Month!

Welcome again! What a great week it was. Chaos War is in full swing, and it is Fantastic. What a huge week coming up. This week marks the return of one of our personal favorites, Strange Tales. Also this week, does Bruce finally get back to Gotham? Doubt it. While the NYCC is going strong we have some 'spooky' events to lay out for you. Keep on readin' for the details!

First off - Halloween / Zombie Prom Night / Walking Dead Celebration! This is going to be an insane event. A ridiculous Halloween party topped with zombies, a costume & dance contest, food, drinks, and a one of a kind sale. Insanity!

Secondly - A super special show is in the makings for October 31st, Halloween night! Not much can be said yet, but look on for as much info as I can pass on.

All the information on all these events and more, including the Picture Books Anonymous Graphic Novel Club can be found below. As always if you have any questions or comments on anything shoot us an e-mail at or give us a call at the store - 718-448-1234.



It's finally arrived, come and join our new graphic novel club entitled Picture Books Anonymous! We'll be meeting once a month (one book per month) next on November 1st at 7:00pm. October's book choice was 100% by Paul Pope. Come down to see what the next book will be and join in on some great conversation. Any books that are chosen for that month will be discounted for book club attendees and we will also be offering a blanket special for book club members - buy any three trades, hardcovers and/or graphic novels and get the fourth one free. SO, with that said, if you are interested in being involved in the book club, send me an e-mail at with your name and information.


We are totally geared up and stoked for the premiere of Walking Dead on AMC this Halloween. The comic series is a store favorite (employees & customers alike) and we can't think of a comic that would make for better episodic television. If you haven't been reading it, then you've really been missing out! Anyway, in honor of the release and with Halloween right there alongside it we thought what better time then Friday, October 29th to throw the baddest Halloween Party around. Come down around 9pm for some extended hours eating and drinking, a special sale and a dance contest hosted by a certain DJ Socko Jones. Dress as a zombie, bring a date, bring a friend, bring whoever you like. We'll be having a contest for best looking zombie and all zombies will receive extra discounts on anything bought. DO NOT MISS THIS!

Special Halloween Show!

Like I said above, not much can be shared at this time except this; It will be a tailgate party with a very special band playing for your enjoyment. Like always, free food and drink. It will start at 9 p.m. Halloween night. Stay tuned as we release the full details next week. The only other hint I can give you, though, are two simple words: Spinal Tap.


Taking place this Sunday, October 3rd we will be conducting free open play of Heroclix down at the store starting at 3pm. It will be casual play and will happen every other Sunday. We've been getting a nice group of people and as we gather even more participants we will start conducting tournaments. Come down if you're interested in playing or learning how to play!


Many of you always ask us if we buy old comics and as you probably already know, we don't. But, we decided that we would give you an opportunity to try and sell some of your stuff at the store in a once a month thing we are calling the CBJ Sunday Swap Meet. Ideally, we would like this to take place one Sunday a month. For those interested in selling there would be a $50 fee which gets you a table and some space to display all your stuff. Obviously we would promote the day and you are welcome to handle the rest in any way you see fit. This could be a great opportunity to unload some books you've been sitting on or if you're a buyer find some key back issues or other stuff at a friendly and familiar location! If you're interested in either buying or selling, send us an e-mail at and sound off!
