Anyway, I’ll open at noon and will have a bunch of good comics out! Aquaman 62 (& variant) Batman 97 Joker War Catwoman 24Dark Nights Death Metal Guidebook Mad Magazine 15 (Al Jaffee tribute) Metal Men 9 Nightwing 73 Joker War (& variant) Scooby Doo 105 Teen Titans 44 Wonder Woman Dead Earth 4 (of 4)

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…

Heaux Stories: Part Deux at Polaris Hall

We invite you to attend what some people anticipate to be the “steamiest night of the year”- Heaux Stories:Part Deux. This show is the sequel to sold-out storytelling showcase Heaux Stories.
