Hope everyone got everything they asked for!
If not… we have a sale for you!
Our annual BOXING WEEKEND SALE Â starts Friday, December 27 @ 12 noon!
Don’t miss out! See you HERE!
I mean a whole week without comics! It’s unthinkable!
Well, the comic gods smile upon this week and everything has arrived (including the missing shipment from November 19)! So, this week we have a double dose of comic goodness!
Hope to see you all soon and thank you so much for your patience and understanding!
Just got an email from Diamond Comics (our distributor) stating the comic shipment scheduled to arrive Wednesday, November 20, 2013 has been tentatively delayed until Friday, November 22, 2013! =(
What happened was this: the truck that all of our comics were on got into an accident and the insurance company is holding onto the truck to assess damage. Diamond and everyone involved is doing the best that they can and this is a problem that ALL comic stores in Edmonton will have (not localized to just us).
Again, very sorry for the delay and hope to have all of the comics on Friday (but it may not be until Monday before they arrive).
Here is a link listing all of the delayed comics: http://www.previewsworld.com/shipping/newreleases.txt
And, here is a copy of the email that got sent out to all Edmonton comic stores:
********** UPDATED EDMONTON SHIPPING ADVISORY **********
Dear Valued Diamond Customer:
The truck carrying this week’s shipment to the Edmonton drop point is
still being held by the insurance company to assess damage and the
safety of the vehicle.Â We currently estimate that it will deliver to
Edmonton in time for customers to be able to pick-up sometime on Friday,
November 22.Â Please be advised that this information is subject to
change and Diamond will email you with any new updates as we receive
If you receive store delivery via courier, our current estimations of
arrival dates means your shipment will not deliver until early next
week.Â Therefore, if you would like to pick this shipment up at the drop
point (assuming the current Friday pick up estimation holds) so you have
it before the weekend please notify your customer service representative
and we can arrange that for you.Â
If you have any questions please contact your Diamond customer service

Our SUMMER SALE starts now and ends August 1! We will be adding items each week! For now, here are two BIG sales:
*SOFTCOVER and HARDCOVER collected editions/graphic novels/tradepaperbacks are on sale for 20% OFF!
*Warmachine Hordes MODELS and BOOKS are 20% OFF!
Keep an eye out for upcoming specials!
“Amazing Spider-Man” #700 First Printings, scheduled to ship January 2, 2013, are completely SOLD OUT!
We will haveÂ a small shipment of Second Printing (set to arriveÂ 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.
Our shipment scheduled for the week of December 28 will NOT arrive until the first week of January.
Just got this email from my sales rep:
Hello folks, if you are receiving this email, that means you are one of the affected people by the Edmonton drop point truck delay that occurred on 12/24/12. A truck had broken down on Christmas Eve on the way from the states to Edmonton. Since it was Christmas Eve and the next day was Christmas Day, this provided a difficult task for the driver to get parts to repair the truck. I have been told the truck’s replacement parts were shipped today and are due to be there tomorrow to repair the truck. The truck is estimated to arrive in Edmonton on Monday 1/31/12 on New Year’s Eve. Please contact the drop point after or on Monday to make sure the truck is there before making the trip. If you are using a courier service to receive product from Edmonton, don’t expect delivery of product until at least Thursday 1/4/13. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause you and rest assured we will do our absolute best to get your product delivered to you by these estimated guidelines. If you have any questions feel free to contact me and I will do everything I can to help clarify any indiscretions you may have. Thank you folks for your time!!

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!
God bless Marvel/Disney!
Arriving this week is limited supply of FREE comics from the good folks at Marvel/Disney!
Not to be confused with the Marvel revamp of Spider-Man in 2000 written by Brian Michael Bendis and drawn by Mark Bagley, this new “Ultimate Spider-Man” series is targetting a younger audience and is actually a great “All Ages” comic! Inside, we find Spidey meeting up with Ultimate Nick Fury and fighting the new Frightful Four (The Trapster, The Wizard, Klaw and Thundra)!
We have a limited supply of these great comics on hand and they will begiven away on a first come-first serve basis. One per person.
Ever wonder which team would win in an all-out battle: Avengers or X-Men?
Now you’ll be able to find out!
Starting with issue Zero which came out today, Marvel launched a maxi-series (12 parts in all) featuring their two biggest team titles against each other: “Avengers Vs X-Men” is here and it is amazing!
We’re all setup and ready to create subscriptions and accounts for anyone new (or old) to comics that wants to collect the entire series!
To help promote this landmark title, Marvel has sent us a few lithographs and a handful of AvX buttons to give out!
It’s not too late, but we do have a limited quantity of issues #0 and #1 on hand so don’t delay and reserve / purchase your copies today!
Need background on the two teams orÂ haven’t read comics in a while and want to catch up? We have a selection of Trade Paper Backs (TPB)Â that will bring you up to speed!
