HAPPY FIFTH WEDNESDAY!

HALLOWEEN COMICFEST THANK YOU!

Thank You to everyone who made a special trip to FUNNYBOOKS for Saturday’s HALLOWEEN COMICFEST! Those who stopped by left with a handful of FREE HALLOWEEN COMICFEST 2014 comics, and many also took advantage of our ONE-DAY COMICFEST Deals. Special thanks to anyone who came in costume! The HALLOWEEN-THEMED FREE COMIC BOOK DAY event is still in its early stages of awareness and promotion, but we are very happy with the results and look forward to growing the event in the years to come. If you missed out on the FREE COMICS (or want some more), we still have some extras to go around, so make sure to snag some during today’s 12-HOUR NEW COMIC DAY at FUNNYBOOKS!

HAPPY FIFTH OCTOBER WEDNESDAY!

OCTOBER has certainly had it all for fans of FUNNYBOOKS, so it’s only fitting that the final New Comic Day of the month is a Fabulous FIFTH WEDNESDAY at FUNNYBOOKS! Stop by during our patented 12-HOUR NEW COMIC DAY (10am-10pm EVERY Wednesday), wish us a “HAPPY 5th WEDNESDAY,” and you will be treated to a special 5th WEDNESDAY DiSCOUNT of 15%-OFF ANY and ALL Comics & Graphic Novels (also Hard Covers and Manga) that hit the FUNNYBOOKS shelves this week. FIFTH WEDNESDAY — Only at FUNNYBOOKS!

LAST CALL FOR HALLOWEEN COMIC TREATS!

It’s HALLOWEEN WEEK! Which means it’s your final chance to snag some bundles of our very cool ALL-AGES HALLOWEEN MINI-COMICS, and give comics instead of candy to the trick-or-treaters who ring your doorbell this Halloween (unless for some reason you don’t want to be one of the coolest stops in your neighborhood). We have THREE different MINI-COMIC BUNDLES to choose from (ANGRY BIRDS, BETTY & VERONICA, and a Halloween-themed anthology which includes ADVENTURE TIME, PEANUTS and FRAGGLEROCK). HALLOWEEN MINI-COMIC BUNDLES are also great for HALLOWEEN parties and events when you need a little something special for everyone. Each bundle contains 20 MINI-COMICS for $5 (that’s only 25 cents a comic!) so stop by, load-up, and get ready for HALLOWEEN this Friday!

NOVEMBER SALES ANNOUNCED!

Just because POPtober was a FAN-tastic-month of epic proportions, doesn’t mean November has to be boring! Actually, around FUNNYBOOKS, it will be just the opposite as our November schedule is already set, and we have a lot of good things planned to keep things FANtastic around here. This November we will be bringing the focus back to COMICS and GRAPHIC NOVELS with a couple of BIG-TIME early November Sales, and the whole month leads-up to Thanksgiving Weekend and SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY (November 29th) which has turned into one of the biggest shopping days of the year here at FUNNYBOOKS!

THE TIMES THEY ARE A’CHANGIN!

November starts this Saturday, and FUNNYBOOKS isn’t wasting anytime to get the November ball rolling. We will start the month off with our Annual FUNNYBOOKS FALLBACK BACK ISSUE SALE (which is always timed to coincide with the FALLBACK time change (YES! That happens this weekend – and this is the GOOD one where we all gain an extra hour!). Get your BACK ISSUE list ready because this weekend — SATURDAY, November 1st (10am-7pm) and SUNDAY, November 2nd (12noon-5pm) — ALL “BOXED” BACK ISSUES AT FUNNYBOOKS will be a WHOPPING HALF-OFF! Don’t forget to set your clocks back for FUNNYBOOKS FALLBACK SALE this Saturday and Sunday!

BRACE YOURSELF FOR “DESTROY ALL SALES”

MARK YOUR CALENDARS for this one! FUNNYBOOKS will be hosting a HUGE 3-DAY SALE — which may just be the BIGGEST in-store sale we have every had — on Friday November 7th, Saturday, November 8th and Sunday November 9th! DESTROY ALL SALES will feature SIX of FUNNYBOOKS’ most Iconic Annual Sales ALL AT THE SAME TIME! DESTROY ALL SALES will be a Special THREE-DAY-LONG EPIC SALE with extended hours including Late Nite Friday shopping (until 11pm) and a 12-HOUR Saturday (9am-9pm). One thing that separates FUNNYBOOKS from the other fine Comic Shops in our area, is the FUNNYBOOKS arsenal of HUGE trademarked SALES like NEW YEARS STEVE, LOVEBUCKS, FUNNY FEVER, LADDERS, FALLBACK and EPICFAIL, and now you will have the chance to enjoy ALL SIX of these sales at the same time! This is one FUNNYBOOKS SALE that you do NOT want to miss!

SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY

Finally, at the end of November, join us for SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY – which has emerged as one our biggest days of the year here at FUNNYBOOKS. Having an AMEX card will give you a bonus $10 to spend that day, but you will not need AMEX to enjoy the HUGE ONE-DAY deals we will be offering on SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY (which is THE DAY AFTER BLACK FRIDAY – TWO DAYS AFTER THANKSGIVING – Saturday, November 29th).

5th WEDNESDAY POTPOURRI

Okay, enough about November! We still have the FIFTH and Final New Comic Day of October to get to. Despite the “Skip Week” things are looking pretty good on the FUNNYBOOKS New Comic shelves!

RUB AND SMELL HARLEY QUINN!

FUNNYBOOKS’ TOP TITLE this week is DC’s HARLEY QUINN ANNUAL #1, which is poly-bagged to conceal its special “Rub & Smell” — they can’t legally say “Scratch & Sniff” — contents. The HARLEY ANNUAL comes in TWO editions (Standard and International) with the difference being one of the secret (kind of “counter culture”) smells inside. Each of these TWO editions also have special BOMBSHELL Variants, so HARLEY collectors may want to bring a bigger wallet to FUNNYBOOKS this week (and don’t forget to use your 5th WEDNESDAY DISCOUNT). Besides HARLEY, DC also offers new issues of its THREE weekly titles (BATMAN ETERNAL #30, NEW 52 FUTURES END #26, and EARTH 2 WORLDS END #4), a couple of annuals (JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK and JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED – featuring the LEGION OF SUPERHEROES!), and two issues with October “Monsters” Variant covers (SINESTRO #6 and WONDER WOMAN #35).

MARVEL 75 YEARS AND COUNTING!

Marvel has a more “regular” week of New Comics, with more AXIS action as two New AXIS miniseries launch (AXIS: REVOLUTIONS and AXIS CARNAGE), More “DEATH OF WOLVERINE” Aftermath issues (including D.O.W. LOGAN LEGACY #3, and D.O.W. DEADPOOL & CAPTAIN AMERICA #1), And more Marvel COSMIC action (GUARDIANS #20, FANTASTIC FOUR #12, NOVA #22, INHUMAN #7, and THANOS A GOD UP THERE #4 (of 4). Also look for the MARVEL 75th ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL (which includes tons of goodies including a Bruce Timm adaptation of Stan Lee’s first ever CAPTAIN AMERICA story), and check out first issue of Marvel’s New DEATHLOK series, and the finale of the “PUNISHER vs. THE THUNDERBOLTS” storyline in the final issue of THUNDERBOLTS (#32).

FIFTH WEDNESDAY GOODIES ABOUND!

It’s a nice IMAGE WEEK with new issues of fan-favorties like SAGA, BLACK SCIENCE, LOW, SOUTHERN BASTARDS, and WAYWARD, along with the new RASPUTIN #1. Dark Horse has the new MASSIVE #28 and the new GOON OCCASION OF REVENGE #3 (of 4). Avatar has the FUNNYBOOK FAVORITE, GARTH ENNIS WAR STORIES #2, as well as new issues of CROSSED, GOD IS DEAD, and UBER. There are some key small publisher titles like RACHEL RISING #29, LENORE II #11, ATOMIC ROBO KNIGHTS OF THE GOLDEN CIRCLE #5 (of 5) and Jeff “BONE” Smith’s TUKI SAVE THE HUMANS #2. There’s some cool pop-culture titles including DOCTOR WHO 11th DOCTOR #4, and DREDD UPRISE #1. And — on top of all that — it’s a Great All-Ages Week with new issues of BOB’S BURGERS, ADVENTURE TIME, and LITTLE NEMO IN SLUMBERLAND, as well as the debut of the new SONIC BOOM #1.

I could go on and on (obviously), but I think I’ve covered most of what I wanted to get to for this week’s 12-HOUR, FIFTH WEDNESDAY ,NEW COMIC DAY. For the complete NEW THIS WEEK LIST, please scroll downward. Hope 2 C U @ FUNNYBOOKS for FIFTH WEDNESDAY! – Funny Steve

We will be handing out FREE COMICS to EVERYONE who stops by on Saturday, October 25th from 10am-3pm+ (while supplies last). The FREEBIES include great all-ages choices like SCOOBY DOO TEAM-UP and MY LITTLE PONY, great Halloween-themed titles like AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE and BATMAN LONG HALLOWEEN, and great choices for “Mature Readers” like RACHEL RISING and Max Brooks’ EXTINCTION PARADE. Images of the FREE COMICS (which are FULL-SIZE Comics this year) can be found at funnyrama.com (there’s a link at the bottom of this E-Mail). We think this year’s choices are as good — if not better — than this year’s FREE COMIC BOOK DAY selections, so stop by and #GETSOME!

HALLOWEEN COMICFEST SALE BEGINS TODAY!
Since not everyone will be in the neighborhood and able to make it to FUNNYBOOKS tomorrow for HALLOWEEN COMICFEST, beginning today (FRIDAY 11am-9pm) FUNNYBOOKS will begin our SPECIAL HALLOWEEN COMICFEST “BUY ONE GET ONE HALF-OFF” SALE a day early.

Besides the Special DEALS offered above, if you come in COSTUME for Saturday’s HALLOWEEN COMICFEST, you will enjoy an EXCLUSIVE discount of 20%-OFF EVERYTHING IN THE STORE — including NEW COMICS! We are hoping to see some great costumes throughout the day and rumor has it that both HARLEY QUINN and CAPTAIN AMERICA will be stopping by for some Costumed Photo-Ops! (Note: the 20%-OFF “in-costume” discount can not be combined with our BUY ONE GET ONE HALF-OFF SALE).

FUNNYBOOKS COSPLAY CLUB!
We’ve been wanting to start a COSPLAY CLUB here at FUNNYBOOKS for a while now and HALLOWEEN COMICFEST seems like a great chance to get things started. We will have a special sign-up sheet for the COSPLAY CLUB here during HALLOWEEN COMICFEST and we welcome your ideas and suggestions!

LIFE IS ALL GOOD AFTER COMIC CON!

SO THERE WAS THIS THING CALLED COMIC CON!

It’s the Post-New York Comic Con New Comic Day at FUNNYBOOKS, which is always FUN as we get to hear everyone’s Comic Con stories, and the Comic Book and Pop Culture excitement is amped-up, thanks to all the big announcements that come out of the big show (Like the return of Marvel’s SECRET WARS!). Plus, there’s the season premiere of WALKING DEAD to talk about — YES, I’ve seen it (OMG!). I for one am very excited to get back to work, filling FUNNYBOOKS new layout with all the great Comics & Stuff that everyone is looking for. If you are suffering from Post-Comic Con withdrawal, FUNNYBOOKS has the cure — and it’s called the 12-HOUR NEW COMIC DAY!

THIS WEEK’S TOP TWENTY-ONE TITLES AT FUNNYBOOKS!

NEW THIS WEEK AT FUNNYBOOKS!

This will be a shorter than usual New Comic Day E-Mail but rest assured, FUNNYBOOKS is all set and ready to go for a Big-Time New Comic Day (Rain OR Shine!), and — as you can see from this week’s TOP TITLE LIST — there’s a LOT going on on the FUNNYBOOKS shelves! Marvel Comics pretty much steals the show this week with AVENGERS AND X-MEN AXIS #2 (of 9) and DEATH OF WOLVERINE #4 (of 4) tying for the TOP SPOT on the FUNNYBOOKS’ TOP TITLE LIST (Look for a special Greg Land “DEATH OF WOLVERINE” Variant Cover for cover price on the FUNNYBOOKS shelves — while supplies last). DC takes the next TWO spots with New issues of JUSTICE LEAGUE (#35) and BATMAN AND ROBIN (#35) both hitting the FUNNYBOOKS’ shelves with their October “MONSTER VARIANT” counterparts (other MONSTER VARIANTS can be found on this week’s BATMAN SUPERMAN #15 and TEEN TITANS #3).

R.I.P. WOLVERINE :(

Marvel may have killed WOLVERINE, but his LEGACY lives on today as DEATH OF WOLVERINE: LOGAN’S LEGACY #1 hits the FUNNYBOOKS’ shelves alongside WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #10 (a DEATH OF WOLVERINE tie-in). Speaking of “tie-ins,” today’s MAGNETO #11 ties-in to AXIS, and SPIDER-MAN 2099 #5 ties-in to Marvel’s SPIDER-VERSE storyline. AND… Speaking of SPIDER-VERSE, Look for EDGE OF THE SPIDER-VERSE #5 (of 5) today. We caught the tale-end of the SPIDER-VERSE panel at NYCC and this is one storyline every SPIDER-FAN will want to get in on! We (Valerie and I) also got to meet SPIDER-VERSE writer, Dan Slott, at the CON (and were dressed appropriately as Dan also writes the New SILVER SURFER title).

Building (on Smith Road) THIS SATURDAY AND SUNDAY! FUNNYBOOKS will be there with THREE Tables of discounted Comics & Action Figures (we will most likely send a second E-Mail reminder about TOYCON later this week). THEN — On Saturday October 25th, we will host an event called HALLOWEEN COMIC FEST (right here at FUNNYBOOKS) and will be handing out FREE COMICS to everyone (Kids and Kids at Heart) who stops by (Cosplay and Costumes are ENCOURAGED!).
