Join us in welcoming Bob to Iowa. It is the first time he has set foot in Iowa.
We will have prizes, give a ways, and more to celebrate the 4th Anniversary of the store on October 4th.
And we will have cake. From the same place that I ordered cake from last year.
Saturday the 20th we had three Prereleases for the Khans of Tarkir MTG game. It was hit. Went very smoothly. No one left early during any of the games. Very solid prerelease. Wish all of them were this way.
Friday at 12:01 in the morning we will be open for one hour to sell Khans material. Feel free to stop in and pick up some cool new stuff.
We will then re open at noon our regular time that Friday.
Heroclix this Saturday at 4 will be for the new X Men prize support. Eight counter top buy in. And no Pacific Rim can not be used.
DC’s 3 D Covers wrap up this month. I have read online some stores less than impressed with their sales of the 3D covers. Here at Rodman Comics that have been selling very well. Not the level of last years 3D Villians month covers though that is due to the Villians covers being “limited”. Meaning the whole supply issue from last year was not a problem this year. This years 3D covers look over all better than last years. Birds of Prey, Batwoman, Infinity and the Forever People received a massive bump in sales over their regular monthly books.
Death of Wolverine issue 3 being delayed till next month is a disappointment to everyone following that limited series. Marvel waiting till the Thursday before it was suppose to be released I think was Marvel hoping to save face that the limited series that was suppose to be weekly couldn’t sat weekly for more than two issues. I was mostly annoyed by the lack of a heads up by Marvel so I could have let my customers know ahead of time instead of some customers assuming I sold out already of issue three. Which is perfectly understandable.
We do have the Death of Wolverine 1 McGuinness Mortal Variant covers in this week. The variant cover that comic stores could get by returning Wolverine issue 1. For every two returned we could receive one variant.
Lots going on here and everything is going pretty good. Knock on wood. Survived the prerelease. Getting ready for Bob Layton’s arrival.
Nothing “bad” to report.
Was shocked to learn that a Deadpool movie is indeed good to go. I read the news hours after posting about if a Deadpool movie became a reality how his first appearance would be worth even more. And how Deadpool’s second appearance is is roughly going for around $3 and now would be a good time to pick up a copy for $3.
