DC comics Tuesday!

The comics from the new DC distributor came in in plenty of time to actually try out a Tuesday release! Call it market research. I can’t promise I’ll always do it (Wednesday is the big day, there’s a pandemic, I’m a 1-man shop so not able to work 7 days a week) but I thought I would do it this time since we have a busy week for DC comics. Please follow all precautions as usual and I’m happy to do curbside or free delivery to North Portland. Thanks! Let me know if questions. Offerings include: Batman 94 Batman The Adventures Continue 2 Batman’s Grave DC Classics The Batman Adventures 2 DCeased Dead Planet 1 (of 6) Detective Comics 1023 Joker War Flash 757 Green…
