UPS / Holidays / Comic Books


The Holidays are here and ups is unable to keep up with the increase in shipping traffic, so this weeks [also the week of New Years] will arrive on New Comic Book day.  [versus a day early]  That means, I will need time to process the comics once I get them. [usually 2 hrs]

Again, I am sorry for the delay and any inconvenience that this is going to cause.

If you have any questions, please call at 916-357-5615


UPS dropped the ball .. again

It would seem that the shipment did not make it on the truck [holiday volume is up.. or something like that], so once again.  I have to wait for UPS to deliver and that means, new comics will not be read when the doors open tomorrow 12/2/2015.

VADER DOWN #1 Unites STAR WARS & DARTH VADER for Epic Crossover!


New York, NY – July 15th, 2015 – Two of the biggest comics in the world collide as STAR WARS and DARTH VADER cross over for the first time! Today, Marvel is pleased to present VADER DOWN – a blockbuster six-part crossover beginning this November! Chartbusting writers Jason Aaron (Star Wars, Thor) and Kieron Gillen (Darth Vader, Young Avengers) join forces with blockbuster artists Mike Deodato (Original Sin) and Salvador Larroca (Darth Vader) combine both ongoing Star Wars titles for a crossover in the mighty Marvel manner!

“This is a true crossover in the classic Marvel Style,” says Editor Jordan D. White. “Kicking off in the Vader Down one-shot, the story then bounces between DARTH VADER and STAR WARS, telling a story that is essential to the plotlines of both books, that takes the casts from each and smashes them together in one epic tale!”

Vader’s TIE Fighter has been shot down. Seeing this as their one, best chance to take Vader down once and for all, the Rebellion is ready to throw everything they have at him. Alone, outnumbered, and outgunned, Darth Vader now must face down the entire might of the Rebel Fleet. But the Rebels are about to learn the true unrestrained power of the Dark Side of the Force. With the Rebellion putting it all on the line, could this risky gambit cripple their forces in the fight against the Empire?



Comic-Con News:  At the San Diego Comic-Con Dark Horse Comics announced an agreement with Nickelodeon to create a series of comic books based on The Legend of Korra TV series.  When The Legend of Korra debuted on Nickelodeon four seasons ago, it set a new cable record for a kid’s show.  The critically acclaimed Legend of Korra series, which was a follow-up to the hugely successful Avatar, The Last Airbender focused on a new Avatar, Korra, who mastered the four elements and her struggle to protect and bring balance to the world.

The fact that the new Legend of Korra comics, which ICv2 has learned will be digest-sized, will feature Korra and Asami, takes place after the conclusion of the events in Season 4 and is being written by the co-creator of the show means that these comics (like Dark Horse’s Avatar volumes) will become part of the Legend of Korra canon.

Dark Horse’s Avatar graphic novel collections did exceptionally well in both the comic book and bookstore marketplaces, and its Legend of Korra books are well-positioned to continue that success.  Details about the creative teams and the launch date of Dark Horse’s Legend of Korra comics should be forthcoming in the next few weeks.

GamersCircle Comics Shipment for 7/1/2015


This week’s [7/1/2015] comic order is on time and will be available Wednesday morning, but due issues with data between the distributor and the shop, the emails will not be accurate again this week.  It would seem that any comic book / graphic novel that was ordered back in April is being impacted.

If you think that you should get comics, but don’t get an email.  Please feel free to call 916-357-5615 and we can tell you.

Sorry for any problems that this might cause.
