Carnage & Kick Ass are back, details on Halloween weekend extravaganza!

Another week chock full of comics is upon us. We hope you all had a great time at NYCC which seems like it's quickly rivaling San Diego for biggest con in the country. It was packed! Hopefully you picked up some good stuff and are pumped about comics from your favorite comic shop! Pretty good week of comics coming up including Carnage #1, the newest Batman & Robin and the return of Kick Ass! For those who are fans of Kick Ass be sure to check out both Nemesis and Superior (both are just as awesome).

Comics aside we have two incredible events happening at the end of the month so make sure you attend! First is the Zombie Prom Night & Walking Dead Release Party happening on Friday, October 29th quickly followed by a very special Halloween show featuring a Spinal Tap cover band (with two original members of Blue Oyster Cult)!

Finally, if you're still interested in joining Picture Books Anonymous (our new graphic novel club) then come by the store and pick up our first book 100% by Paul Pope at 25% off and come to the next meeting on Monday, November 1st. And 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. See you at the shop!



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) and our next meeting will be held on November 1st at 7:00pm. The first book is 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 that night. DO NOT MISS THIS!


This will quite possibly be one of the most ridiculous events we've ever held. Right off the heels of our Walking Dead Party we'll be showcasing the baddest cover band around (featuring two original members of Blue Oyster Cult) playing Spinal Tap songs. Yes, Spinal Tap. We can't wait! The Spinal Tap cover band will be joined by Morning Starlett. The festivities kick off on Halloween, Sunday, October 31st at 9pm. There will be food, drinks, a special sale and a costume contest so come in your best costume! As a quick note, if you've never seen Spinal Tap you really have no excuse at this point - watch the movie before you come.


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!
