Amazing Spider-Man #700 (First Printings) Are Sold Out!

Amazing Spider-Man” #700 First Printings, scheduled to ship January 2, 2013, are completely SOLD OUT!

We will have a small shipment of Second Printing (set to arrive at the end of January), if you’d like a copy, please come by the store and prepay for one. Quantities are limited. Please, no phone calls.

Last weekend, we had our After Christmas Sale and we were very, very busy. We also received many, many phone calls for “Amazing Spider-Man” #700. I dealt with each request in the same way: I was open and honest- I told all who asked that “We’re sold out and could not get anymore First Printings.” Surprisingly enough some felt that if they asked me the SAME QUESTION multiple times over, it may yield a different answer. Very sorry, but if you ask me for something and I reply, “Sorry, I don’t have anymore- we’re completely sold out.” Asking me the same question (doesn’t matter how many times), isn’t going to get me to change my answer.

The reality is: we had a preorder which ended two months ago. We usually order a few extra copies, but those were quickly eaten up by some of our subscribers that missed the order deadline. We’re very sorry we couldn’t help you with this item.

Other early appearances of the new Spider-Man:

*Daredevil #21 First Printing

*Avenging Spider-Man #16 First Printing

*Superior Spider-Man #1 First Printing

Are also Sold Out.

God Bless, Marvel Comics!

Just got our Retailer Incentive issue of “Avengers VS X-Men” Round One (or issue #1) and low and behold on the inside front cover, Marvel Comics PERSONALIZED this comic to us!

I’ve seen crossover events come and go, but man it is so incredible to see a comic addressed directly to your own store.

Thank you, Marvel (Axel Alonso and the powers that be!) for this beautiful gift!

Comic Quiz!

Take the comic quiz!

Blaine has put together a very challenging comicbook quiz. Just follow the link and click on either “Marvel” or “DC” to take that specific quiz!


Blaine informed me earlier that I scored 75% on the Marvel quiz, I’m sure there are people out there that can beat that!

If you’re familiar with the Marvel universe, give it a try (and if you can remember the day and time you took the test, I can ask Blaine how you did!)
