We cannot say how much we miss all of you and hope everyone is doing well.
We have some good news!
We have reopened with an asterisk! New titles have resumed!!!
We are open Tuesday - Saturday 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM.
For safety, we will have a strict limit of 5 customers in-store at one time. We are also encouraging masks and social distancing for the safety of both staff and customers.
We will continue to offer curbside pickup.
At this time, Mondays will be appointment only to help accommodate our high-risk customers.
We will keep you all updated as things go forward, and look forward to seeing everyone (at a distance) again!
Alex, Bri, Josh, Joe, Brigid, Nancy and Steve
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!
