These updates are becoming quite the regularity, aren't they? We hope everyone is safe and healthy where they are.
We know that many of you have questions about where things are here at Alpha Comics. Our policy for this crisis has been that as long as it is safe and lawful for us to remain open, we will. We have been strict in adhering to the guidelines set forth by the CDC, yet our growing concern for the health of our community has caused us to take additional steps.
Our storefront will now be open only to curbside pickup and delivery orders. We will have someone available to offer these services Tuesday – Saturday from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM. We will also be able to take orders if you email us through our website alphacomics.com.
We are fortunate at Willow Lawn to be located in the same plaza as a grocery store, pet supply store, and very close to a pharmacy. At this time, while travel is limited to many of these essential services, we are happy to offer some much-needed escapism delivered safely to your car while you are out collecting these necessities. While you are staying safe at home we are offering $5.00 shipping for all orders - everything from subscription boxes to graphic novels, to vintage comics! If you want us to put together a bundle for you, give us a call and let us know what you like. We will be happy to recommend something to suit you.
We know there is a lot going on right now, and it is overwhelming- but we are going to get through this, and we are going to get through this together.

Bri says: The United States is fractured, literally, due to several natural disasters. All B.B. Free wants is to explore this dystopian world with her best friend, document her travels on their own radio station, and find where she fits. I love the color choices with the art it makes everything feel so warm and unique. It is only on issue 2, but it seems like it will be a great coming of age story!
Josh says: The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Power Rangers were a staple of my childhood so when I came across this cross over, I had to get it. From the first page I was hooked by the beautiful art, and then the story grabbed me and never let go. From the turtles being their usual turtle selves, to the twist, I never thought I needed this in a series I will follow until the end. If you love the Power Rangers and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles check this one out! and grab your copy so we can talk about it.
Joe says: This is my favorite comic! Nowhere Men is set in a world where "science is the new rock and roll". It follows a group of four innovative individuals who create a company that revolutionizes the world with technological advances. The lore and world are fun and unique, the characters are well written, and the art style is very unique and colorful! Definitely check this one out!
Alex says: Everyone knows I am a super huge Dungeons and Dragons nerd, and I am always looking for cool new things to help me build my campaigns. This incredibly beautiful book- while it doesn't contain any stat blocks- is an incredible resource for learning about cool creatures. The lore of this bestiary is simple, but offers a lot of great inspiration for side quests and campaign arcs. The art is clean and delightful- I was excited to see eastern interpretations of traditional swords and sorcery staples- such as the Lich, the Mimic, and the Redcap. "Dungeons & Drawings" is for sure my recommend for this month, especially if you're looking for something different for the RPG fan that already has everything.
I watched the Locke & Key series on Netflix and immediately wanted to read the books that spawned the series. They are definitely a bit darker but the story line is SO much deeper and interesting. Check it out for an incredible ride!
