From opening at 10am until closing at 9am (or earlier, if we run out), Saturday May 6th is one of our favorite days of the year! It’s FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! A collaboration of stores, publishers, and the industry’s major distributor, FCBD is the perfect time to check out new offerings from your favorite publishers like Drawn and Quarterly, Image, Fantagraphics, Marvel and DC! Hub Comics will also have some choice books on-sale that day for an extra discount, but supplies will be limited!
We are pleased to showcase Dave Marshall‘s lovely poster for our 8th annual Dark Knight on Dark Night. Come to our opening reception on Saturday, December 10th from 6 to 8pm and see Batman-inspired works by local artists! If you miss this fun event (Snacks! Soda! People talking about Batman!), the art is on display through January.
