HAPPY FIFTH WEDNESDAY!

HAPPY FIFTH WEDNESDAY (and THURSDAY)!
It’s the FIFTH WEDNESDAY of the month — which means a BONUS New Comic Day for EVERYONE! And — for everyone who shops at FUNNYBOOKS — FIFTH WEDNESDAY means 15%-OFF all of this week’s New Comics & Graphic Novels when you stop by (Wednesday 10am-10pm) and wish us a “HAPPY FIFTH WEDNESDAY.” Plus! — Once again — FIFTH WEDNESDAY will be followed by FIFTH THURSDAY, and you can get the same 15%-OFF when you stop by on Thursday (10-7) and wish us a “HAPPY FIFTH THURSDAY” (which doesn’t have the same ring to it, but still gets you the discount). FIFTH WEDNESDAY (and FIFTH THURSDAY)… ONLY AT FUNNYBOOKS!


AIN’T NOTHING BUT A HEAT WAVE!
It looks like a HOT and STEAMY NEW COMIC DAY, and FUNNYBOOKS is more than ready with 15,000 BTU’s of climate changing AC! We’ll be keeping it cool so the comics stay all Nicey-Nice, and everyone can enjoy their NEW COMIC DAY shopping experience (you may even want to bring a sweater). #FREEZERBOOKS


TIME TO DINE WITH AZK#2!
Adding to the FIFTH WEDNESDAY FESTIVITIES this week is the release of the New, ACTION ZOMBIE KINGDOM #2, created written, illustrated, and lettered by Funny Steve Himself (that’s me, BTW), with color covers by FUNNYBOOKS’ very own, ZIGGY B. AZK#2 delivers the 24-Page, Action-Packed, Conclusion to the ACTION FIGURE KINGDOM spin-off miniseries, which pits the GOOD GUY duo of ACROBOT and SPARKINATOR, against some scary (and maybe slightly familiar looking) ZOMBIE BAD GUYS! I’ve worked hard to make ACTION ZOMBIE KINGDOM #2 the best AFK / AZK issue yet, and I hope all ACTION FIGURE KINGDOM fans have fun reading it!


NEW THIS WEEK AT FUNNYBOOKS!
Marvel’s STAR WARS #7 is easily the TOP TITLE at FUNNYBOOKS this week (that is if you’re not counting ACTION ZOMBIE KINGDOM #2), but there are some other FIFTH WEDNESDAY Goodies that may interest you as well including a bunch of Marvel SECRET WARS BATTLEWORLD titles (X-MEN ‘92 #2, THORS #2, DEADPOOL’S SECRET SECRET WARS #3 and more), a bunch of DC ANNUALS (BATGIRL, FLASH, DEATHSTROKE, LOBO, and GOTHAM BY MIDNIGHT), some nice Image reads (SEX CRIMINALS, SOUTHERN BASTARDS, LAZARUS, LOW, WAYWARD, and MANHATTAN PROJECTS), a lot of New Pop-Culture (GHOSTBUSTERS, TMNT, DOCTOR WHO, X-FILES, TRANSFORMERS, HE-MAN and more), and some great ALL-AGES (DONALD DUCK, SIMPSONS ILLUSTRATED, SKYLANDERS, and SONIC). Plus, there are New Issues of SUPERMAN, BATGIRL and DAREDEVIL, and a bunch of other cool Comics & Stuff. Check-out funnyrama.com for the complete NEW THIS WEEK List!

We hope you stop by and enjoy our 15,000 BTU Air-Conditioned environment as you shop for your favorite COMICS & STUFF!

THIS, THAT AND THAT OTHER THING!
Of course not ALL of FUNNYBOOKS Best stuff makes the TOP TITLES LIST, like this week’s FABLES #150 — which doubles as the FABLES Vol. 22 Graphic Novel, and ends the long running fan-favorite DC Vertigo series. Also not on the list would be this week’s new MERCH, which includes both the ARROW DEATHSTROKE and the AVENGERS AGE OF ULTRON BLACK WIDOW Pop-Vinyl Figures, and also includes the NEW52 JOKER Action Figure, as well as the latest MAGIC THE GATHERING Expansion “Origins.” Also not making the list — but worth mentioning — is the first issue of Stan Lee’s CHAKRA THE INVINCIBLE (previewed on FREE COMIC BOOK DAY), Valiant’s BOOK OF DEATH FALL OF BLOODHOT (written by FUNNYBOOKS FAVORITE, Jeff Lemire, and revealing he final fate of BLODSHOT), or perhaps we can interest you in ARCHIE VS. SHARKNADO???

EVEN MORE JULY ON THE WAY!
We promised a BIG JULY here at FUNNYBOOKS, and we’ve been doing our best to keep up our end of the bargain, with 7-DAYS-A-WEEK shopping hours, earlier opening times, and our Huge Summer Reading Sale, LADDERS (not to mention the New AC, another New Bookshelf, and a thorough Graphic Novel restock), but we’re not done yet! There’s still plenty of July left, and more action and excitement is headed your way with this weekend’s GARDEN STATE COMIC FEST (Saturday and Sunday at the Mennan Arena), Next week’s FIFTH WEDNESDAY CELEBRATION, Funny Steve’s 24-page ACTION ZOMBIE KINGDOM #2, and — to cap off the month — A MASSIVE, GIGANTIC, HUGE SALE headed for FUNNYBOOKS next weekend (more on this next week). Plus, LADDERS are still “climbable” through this Saturday! #SOTHERE!

SPECIAL WEEKEND HOURS
This weekend, FUNNYBOOKS will have a booth at the GARDEN STATE COMIC FEST and will divert much of our man — and woman — power to that event. Due to the Con-mitment FUNNYBOOKS’ hours will be slightly impacted this weekend… We will be open 10-5 on Saturday (normally 10-7), and will be closed this Sunday. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes. See you at the Con!

That’s All For Now! Hope 2 C U @ FUNNYBOOKS! – Funny Steve

FLOPPY LADDERS!!!

LADDERS EXTENDED (yes, that’s a LADDDER PUN!)
This weekend (starting Today/Friday at 10am and ending Monday at 3pm), FUNNYBOOKS will extend our 2015 Summer Reading LADDER SALE to include NEW COMICS still on the FUNNYBOOKS shelves (also called “floppies”)! FLOPPY LADDERS can be made with regular issues from the same series (not annuals or specials), and can not be combined with other LADDER CATEGORIES (such as Bagged & Boarded Back Issues). FLOPPY LADDERS can be built using any comic series on the FUNNYBOOKS’ shelves including Marvel’s SECRET WARS BATTLE WORLD titles like the New ARMOR WARS SERIES (issues #1-3 on the shelves would be 10%-OFF, 20%-OFF and 30%-OFF), and the New DC-YOU launches like the New JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA, or GARTH ENNIS’ SECTION EIGHT (get issue #1 at 10%-OFF and #2 at 20%-OFF). PLUS! The LADDER can be exteneded to EVERY other comic book SERIES on the shelves at FUNNYBOOKS including the New BLOODSHOT REBORN (4 issues on the shelves for 10%, 20%, 30% and 40%-OFF), and even on our TOP SELLERS like WALKING DEAD (currently 4 new issues on the shelves) and even SECRET WARS (also four issues on the shelves for 10%, 20%, 30% and 40%-OFF!). FLOPPY LADDERS can also come in super-handy when shopping for ALL-AGES Comics because our ALL-AGES BACK ISSUES are not Bagged and Boarded, so they can be combined with our ALL-AGES COMICS still on the shleves to build some nice FLOPPY LADDERS! Floppy Ladders make THIS WEEKEND one of the BEST weekends of the Summer to stop by FUNNYBOOKS for your summer reading!

BONUS POWER HOURS ADDED TO FRIDAY NIGHT!
To help kick-off the “WEEKEND of FLOPPY LADDERS”, FUNNYBOOKS be adding 2 BONUS HOURS to the tail end of FRIDAY NIGHT (tonight) and will now remain open until 9pm (THIS FRIDAY ONLY). This gives everyone some bonus time to get to FUNNYBOOKS and build some LADDERS before the weekend officially begins. While the Graphic Novel, Back Issue, and Variant Cover categories of the LADDER SALE will continue thru Next Weekend, FLOPPY LADDERS will only be offered THIS WEEKEND (Friday: 10am-9pm, Saturday: 10am-7pm, Sunday: 12noon-5pm, and Monday: 10am-3pm), so stop by and get some New Comic LADDERS while you can!

That’s All For Now! Hope everyone enjoys ANT-MAN! And Hope 2 C U @ FUNNYBOOKS this weekend! – Funny Steve

TRADING CARD, MYSTERY BOX AND POP VINYL SALE!

FUNNYBOOKS will KICK-OFF our new schedule (BELOW) with a SPECIAL MONDAY (10-3) AND TUESDAY (10-7) TWO-DAY-SALE on all of our TRADING CARDS (Wacky Packs, Garbage Pail Kids), TRADING CARD GAMES (Pokemon, Magic the Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh — Packs AND Decks), and Any Game of ANY KIND (Heroclix, Dice Masters, etc.). Plus to help celebrate, we’re also throwing in a 20%-OFF Discount on All MYSTERY BOXES and ALL POP-VINYL FIGURES in the store! ALL THESE ITEMS will all be 20%-OFF MONDAY (10-3) AND TUESDAY (10am-7pm).  Now, here’s our New July Hours…

NEW JULY SHOPPING HOURS!

Starting TODAY (Monday July 6th that is) FUNNYBOOKS will begin our Bold NEW — 7-DAYS-A-WEEK — JULY SHOPPING HOURS! Not only will we be OPEN EVERY DAY, but we will now be Open for business EARLIER — at 10am! — Every Day of the Week (except Sunday when we Open at noon). That’s OPEN 10am Monday Through Saturday! Our NEW EARLIER JULY OPENINGS will be very convenient indeed for those getting an early start to their days. Moms and Dads are notorious early shoppers during the Summer months, and FUNNYBOOKS is responding in kind by getting an earlier start ourselves, so everyone can get all those Summer Goodies (like Summer Camp Comics), and get on their way to the next stop! And — by adding Mondays (10-3) to the schedule — now everyone can also get an early start to their weeks!

7-DAYS-A-WEEK

Did you hear? FUNNYBOOKS IS NOW OPEN EVERY SINGLE DAY! Our New 7-DAYS-A-WEEK JULY SHOPPING SCHEDULE begins just in time for the HUGE MONTH of Comics & Stuff that JULY has become known for every year!  THIS JULY looks exceptionally awesome for Fans of FUNNYBOOKS, with Marvel’s SECRET WARS going strong, the upcoming ANT MAN MOVIE looking good, FEAR THE WALKING DEAD about to start on TV, The SAN DIEGO COMIC CON NEXT WEEK, and the GARDEN STATE COMIC FEST COMIC CON in Morristown at the end of the Month. Not to mention there’s a MEGA-GIANT SUMMER READING SALE going on RIGHT NOW at FUNNYBOOKS (involving LADDERS or something), and Funny “me” Steve’s newest comic, the 24-Page, Action-Packed, ACTION ZOMBIE KINGDOM #2 is also coming your way this JULY!  WOW! — Is that all in ONE MONTH? Good thing FUNNYBOOKS is now OPEN EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK! Tell your friends!

THOSE PESKY CLOSING TIMES

Now that our OPENING TIMES should be easy to remember (10AM EVERY SINGLE DAY except Sunday when it’s at noon — Remember?), take a shot at our closing times which we think we have made Extremely EASY to remember (but if not they’re also on our website (funnyrama.com), as well as on our Facebook page, our Twitter page, our Comic Shop Locator Profile, our Yelp, our Front Door, and on our Answering Machine (Note to self… have to remember to change all of those). Wednesday is of course FUNNYBOOKS’ patented 12-HOUR NEW COMIC DAY (10-10 EVERY SINGLE Wednesday). FUNNYBOOKS will now be open until 7pm FOUR Days-a-Week (Tuesdays Thursday, Friday AND Saturday). Sundays will remain the same (12Noon-5pm). Maybe the trickiest day to remember is our Newly-Added 5-Hour Mondays, which offers the “Early Start to the Week” Shopping Hours of 10am-3pm Every Monday (beginning TODAY!).
