FALL INTO NEW COMICS & STUFF!

STREET FAIR-WELL
Just a quick THANK YOU (!) to EVERYONE who stopped by FUNNYBOOKS on Sunday for the Parsippany Fall Festival and Street Fair! We enjoyed great weather (thank you, God!), fun times were had, and funnel cakes were eaten! Special Thanks to my many “helpers” that day including Matt, John, Sean, Kevin, Ziggy and Valerie (who returned from college for the event). And more special thanks to Melissa, Danielle and Stephanie who showed up in costume, and to the AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (and his photographer, Cheryl) who also swung by to JOIN THE FUN!

NEW FUNNYBOOKS LAYOUT PHASE 2.2
Last week, everyone who popped into FUNNYBOOKS for the 12-Hour New Comic Day, experienced an All-New FUNNYBOOKS’ floor plan, which seemed to go over very well with just about everyone. Unfortunately there was ONE person that was not satisfied with the new design… and that person was ME (hey, it’s me, Funny Steve!). The very next day we took the whole thing apart again (I have a problem) and then put it back together with an even NEWER look, just in time to really fine tune it for the Street Fair. The new look provides more space for FUNNYBOOKS’ ever-growing selection of amazing Graphic Novels, and even more space for all the crazy-cool new MERCH arriving at FUNNYBOOKS on a weekly basis (see below), while still offering the same amount of shelf-space for all of our weekly New Comics (how that’s possible is beyond me). I hope you enjoy our newest look during your trip to FUNNYBOOKS this week! Speaking of which…

SEPTEMBER GOES OUT LIKE A BOSS!
That isn’t supposed to be a reference to Bruce Springsteen’s Birthday (this past week), but we are in Jersey, so if it works for you, consider it a bonus!… But seriously, September’s fourth and final New Comic Week is a Giant-Sized Special, with the fourth and final wave of DC’s 3-D-Motion-covered issues (TEN more to choose from today, including FLASH, SUPERMAN, BOOSTER GOLD and HARLEY QUINN!!!!!!!!!), an unusual amount of cool new specialty merchandise (see below), and a New This Week List that took me forever to type (that used to be Valerie’s job!). Besides the TEN Holograms, you can look forward to more New DC’s, like SUPERMAN DOOMED #2, More Mighty Marvel including NEW AVENGERS #24, EDGE OF THE SPIDERVERSE #3, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #19, and the New GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY “ANGELA” Graphic Novel (collecting issues #4-10 of the new series), LOTS of New POP-CULTURE (including the first issue of the New ALIENS title, and the Newest G.I. JOE #1), LOTS of New ALL-AGES (including the New SIMPSONS TREEHOUSE OF HORROR) ,and LOTS from the “ALSOS” including the new RACHEL RISING #28, and the New BACK ISSUE #76 (a MICRONAUTS Special!). Meanwhile, It’s not a huge IMAGE week, but there are some real goodies hitting the FUNNYBOOKS’ shelves including SAGA #23, LOW #3, WAYWARD #2, CHEW #43, COWL #5, Robert Kirkman’s OUTCAST #4 and the New ROCHE LIMIT #1 (plus the New REVIVAL Graphic Novel and the final FATALE Graphic Novel). There’s a link to the complete list at the end of this E-Mail.

BRING ON THE MERCH!
It’s an unusually big week for comic book-related merchandise (Merch) with great deluxe items including the new BATMAN DEATH OF THE FAMILY Book & Mask Set, and the AWESOME MARVEL COMICS COVERS ARTISTS EDITION (which reprints the original artwork to all kinds of classic and modern-day Marvel covers from the original artwork — and to size!). Plus, there’s a sweet new DEADPOOL Plush Figure, and some cool new action figures including BATGIRL, RED ROBIN, and the New Marvel Select ZOMBIE MAGNETO! Good thing we moved things around in here!

TV TIME!
The Barrage of FALL TV has begun! I have seen GOTHAM and I was really impressed with the first episode (with a Crime Alley scene straight out of BATMAN YEAR ONE, and a Kick-Ass Jim Gordon). I also saw the new AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. which I also really liked (especially the villain — one of my childhood favorites!). I’m sure there will be lots of TV-talk during the 12-HOUR NEW COMIC DAY today (no spoilers, please).

SUNDAY SHOPPING RETURNS!
It’s the first New Comic Day of FALL 2014 (GAH!) and FUNNYBOOKS has switched back to our SIX-DAYS-A WEEK Schedule by adding SUNDAY SHOPPING HOURS (12noon-5pm) back into the mix! Sundays are always Fundays at FUNNYBOOKS, so take advantage of the extra FIVE HOURS of comic book shopping goodness every week!

That’s All For Now! Hope 2 C U @ FUNNYBOOKS this week! Maybe even during today’s 12-Hour New Comic Day (10am-10pm EVERY Wednesday!) – Funny Steve

STREET FAIR SUNDAY DEALS START SATURDAY

STREET FAIR SUNDAY!
Join us both INSIDE AND OUTSIDE of FUNNYBOOKS this SUNDAY (September 21st from 12NOON-5pm) for the PARSIPPANY FALL FESTIVAL — A.K.A. The LAKE HIAWATHA STREET FAIR. FUNNYBOOKS will be bringing it BIG TIME with AMAZING DEALS out on the street — under our TWO TENTS of discounted ACTION FIGURES, BACK ISSUES, MANGA and other GOODIES from our infamous Storage Area — Plus SUPER IN-STORE SPECIALS to boot — including 20%-OFF EVERYTHING IN THE STORE OVER $10, and GREAT DEALS on BACK ISSUES and TRADING CARDS too! See the attached Graphic for the full scoop!

CAN’T MAKE IT ON SUNDAY? – HOW ABOUT SATURDAY?
If you can’t make it to the STREET FAIR on SUNDAY, we are offering everyone a second (more like FIRST) chance at the SAME IN-STORE SPECIALS Today (Saturday, 10-am-7pm). While you’re at FUNNYBOOKS, you can check out our ALL-NEW LAYOUT (and we mean Newer than Wednesday’s NEW LAYOUT!).

STREET FAIR SUPER HEROES GALORE!
FUNNYBOOKS is sure to be the HOT SPOT of the STREET FAIR when everyone’s FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD SPIDER-MAN swings by to say Hi, and to hang-out for photo-ops with all of his many fans (between 1pm and — at least — 3pm). SPIDEY will be joined by his fellow Marvel Heroes CAPTAIN AMERICA and THOR, and — if you’re lucky — you might also run into DC Comics’ trouble-making HARLEY QUINN!

THAT’S ALL FOR NOW! The rest is up to you! We hope 2 C U This WEEKEND! – Funny Steve

NEW LAYOUT PHASE 2.1

OUT OF CHAOS… ORDER? (And New Comics Too)
PHASE TWO of the New FUNNYBOOKS’ layout has gone down, and this time there were a couple of small miscalculations, and one BIG miscalculation.. Just how big of a job this turned out to be. I’ve done my best to put things back together for today’s 12-Hour New Comic Day, but this is in no way the final fall layout. One thing that I did make sure of is that this week’s New Comics & Stuff are front and center, including ELEVEN New DC 3-D-Motion, FUTURES END titles (we get that bonus one this week), MULTIVERSITY SOCIETY OF SUPERHEORES #1 — with art by Chris Sprouse!), Lots of BIG Marvels like AVENGERS #13, ALL-NEW X-MEN #32, UNCANNY X-MEN #26, UNCANNY AVENGERS #24, THOR GOD OF THUNDER #25 (with THREE Covers), EDGE OF THE SPIDERVERSE #2, SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #33, THREE New HULK Issues (HULK #6, SAVAGE HULK #4 and HULK ANNUAL #1), ORIGINAL SIN #5.5 (the ANGELA Fianle) and the DEADPOOL BI-ANNUAL (WOW! That is a lot of BIG Marvels!). IMAGE represents as well, with new issues of MANIFEST DESTINY, TREES, DEADLY CLASS, and a bunch more — You’ll have to check out the rest of the list at funnyrama.com because I am experiencing time-management issues (LOL?).

JOIN US ON SUNDAY FOR THE BIG FAIR!
Before I go, I HAVE to remind you thag SUNDAY SHOPPING returns to FUNNYBOOKS this weekend, just in time for Sunday’s PARISPPANY FALL FESTIVAL (which we call THE LAKE HIAWATHA STREET FAIR) which is always a big deal at FUNNYBOOKS. And speaking of Big Deals, Look for big STREET FAIR deals both inside FUNNYBOOKS and outside under of our tent, where we will be featuring all kinds of goodies (especially ACTTION FIGURES) from our infamous GARAGE! The fair is from 12noon-5pm and North Beverwyck Rd. is closed for the Fair. Rumor has it a FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD SUPER HERO will be swinging by between 1pm and 4pm for photo opportunites, and other costumed characters may also be onhand! I’m hoping to send a more detailed E-Mail about this later in the week!

GOTTA GO!
Okay, everyone, that’s all for now! Have to get to FUNNYBOOKS early tomorrow to do some damage control before opening for the 12-HOUR NEW COMIC DAY (WOO-HOO!). Hope 2 C U There! – Funny Steve

DEADPOOL JOINS THE HOLOGRAM PARTY

NEW LAYOUT PHASE ONE!
Rumors (started by me) about a big change to the FUNNYBOOKS’ floor plan are now confirmed. As a matter of fact, Phase-One of the Two-Phase plan has already gone down, and Phase-Two is set to go down by next week. The goal of the new plan is to create a more open comic book shopping experience at FUNNYBOOKS, with better lines of sight, and an even greater focus on FUNNYBOOKS’ well-maintained selection of Graphic Novels, and more space for all of the great new Comic Book Merchandise that now we have coming in just about every week. The Two-Phase move is timed to get FUNNYBOOKS pumped-up and ready for the upcoming PARSIPPANY FALL FESTIVAL — which we call the Lake Hiawatha Street Fair — on Sunday, September 21st. FUNNYBOOKS will have a big space outside under a tent, and will be filling that space with all kinds of Back Issues, Action Figures and whatever else we can find in our infamouse storage area — and ALL will be offered at BIG discounts! PLUS! Inside FUNNYBOOKS, we will be having a Special, STOREWIDE SALE! Remember! That’s Sunday, September 21st (something like 12noon-5pm). Even more details Next Week, we have to get to this week’s New Comics & Stuff…

BATMAN AND HARLEY in 3-D MOTION!
It’s week TWO of DC’s 3-D-MOTION Covers month and this week you can add the next TEN 3-D Motion Hologram covers to your collection, including TWO BIGGIES… BATMAN FUTURES END #1, and SUICIDE SQUAD FUTURES END #1 (with HARLEY herself on the cover — Thanks DC!). Each of the TEN FUTURES END one shots take place five years in the DC future, and ALL TEN titles combine to make-up FUNNYBOOKS’ TOP TEN TITLES LIST THIS WEEK #cleansweep! Also from DC this week, check out Scott (BATMAN) Snyder and Jim (Awesome Artist) Lee’s SUPERMAN UNCHAINED #8 (OF 9), and other randomness including INJUSTICE, SMALVILLE, ASTRO CITY and the SUPERMAN #32 “DIRECTOR’S CUT,” which showcases JRJR’s uninked pencils, includes the original script by Geoff Johns, and has extra bonus material.

MARVEL HAS COOL STUFF TOO YA KNOW?
It’s hard to compete with HOLOGRAM covers, Scott Snyder and Jim Lee, but Marvel does a good job this week with Cool Comics AND Stuff, including the “shiny” DEATH OF WOLVERINE #2 (which looks pretty awesome), and the much-talked-about SPIDERVERSE storyline begining in EDGE OF THE SPIDERVERSE #1 (of 5). Also look for AMAZING SPDER-MAN #6, AVENGERS #34.1 (with art by Dale “The PITT” Keown), and a whole lot more. Marvel treats us to some nice new merch too including the 2015 Vintage Marvel Comics Calendar (always a favorite around here), new HULK, and WOLVERINE Posters (both by Alex Ross!), nifty new GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY MYSTERY MINI-FIGURES, and a one of a kind DEADPOOL Variant Cover (read on!).

DANCING DEADPOOL JOINS HOLOGRAM PARTY
WADE WILSON gets in on the 3-D Action this week in the form of a very limited “Dancing Deadpool” Variant Cover (to go along with today’s new DEADPOOL #34). Unfortunately, FUNNYBOOKS only has ONE of these special variants so we will have a SILENT AUCTION for Dancing Deadpool. The minimum bid is $50, but we expect this to go a lot higher. We will accept bids beginning today and until the end of Street Fair Sunday (see above).

IMAGE HAS THE WRITE STUFF
Image does a great job keeping up with the big boys this week with an impressive week led by Robert Kirkman’s New WALKING DEAD #131. Image’s writers shine today with INVINCIBLE #114 (also by Kirkman), as well as Ed Brubaker’s VELVET #7, Greg Rucka’s LAZARUS #11, Jonathan Hickman’s EAST OF WEST #15, and Mark Millar’s MPH #3. Also look for new issues of titles that are just getting started like IMPERIAL #2, SPREAD #3, and the New COPPERHEAD #1.

TIME’S UP!
I’d love to tell you all about the “OTHER” Comics & Stuff hitting the shelves this week, but I’d be here all night (plus, I vowed to try to keep these E-Mails shorter). You can always find the complete list by scrolling down, or you can see for yourself while you check-out Phase-One of our new layout during the 12-Hour New Comic Day (Today and EVERY Wednesday, 10am-10pm!), or during our many other convenient shopping hours. Speaking of Hours, FUNNYBOOKS will remain closed on Sundays for only ONE more Sunday, and will “reboot” FUNNYBOOKS’ SUNDAY SHOPPING HOURS on Sunday, September 21st, for the Lake Hiawatha Street Fair.

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

HOLOGRAMS R US!

SEPTEMBER TO REMEMBER BEGINS!
Happy September 2014! And get ready for (literally) the HOTTEST New Comic Day of the year, with a MEGA TOP TITLE LIST that includes the first TEN (of 41) DC “Hologram” covers, the FINAL ISSUE of ORIGINAL SIN (#8), and THE DEATH OF WOLVERINE #1.

HOLY HOLOGRAMS BATMAN!
This week’s TOP TITLE LIST is dominated by the TEN titles that comprise “Wave One” of DC’s September “Motion Cover” event. All-in-all, there will be 41 titles in 4 waves. Each of the 41 titles (which are $3.99 each) takes place FIVE years in the FUTURE, and each cover features a cool “3D-motion” cover that changes between two images. This week’s wave includes some BIG DC titles like ACTION COMICS, DETECTIVE COMICS, GREEN LANTERN, AQUAMAN and GRAYSON. FUNNYBOOKS 3d-Motion reserve system remains OPEN for those looking for a discount plan or who are worried about missing-out on a particular 3-D cover. But that’s not all that DC has to offer this week… There’s also the impressive FOREVER EVIL HARD COVER, which collects the entire 7-issue series starring some of DC’s best Villains, written by Geoff Johns and illustrated by FUNNYBOOKS FAVORITE, David Finch (240 pages for only $25). Plus, look for the new JUSTICE LEAGUE #33 (with a BATMAN-75 Variant), and BATMAN 66 vs. GREEN HORNET #4 (with another unbelievable Alex Ross cover).

WOE IS WOLVERINE!
It’s hard to get excited over the (apparent imminent demise) of a beloved hero, but at the same time, at least it looks like WEAPON-X will be going out in style because today’s DEATH OF WOLVERINE #1 (of 4) looks really good (as soon as I saw it I ordered even more). The first issue of the WEEKLY series that everyone has been asking about, is available NOW at FUNNYBOOKS, and it has a nifty, semi-reflective cover, and absolutely amazing artwork by Steve McNiven (CIVIL WAR, OLD MAN LOGAN #notabadresume.

ORIGINAL SIN EPIC FINALE!
If TEN HOLOGRAMS and THE DEATH OF WOLVERINE aren’t enough to satisfy your Fanboy, Fangirl or FanFamily needs, perhaps we can also interest you in today’s ORIGINAL SIN #8 (of 8) which presents the epic finale to the well-crafted “Death of the WATCHER” storyline — which has also been a NICK FURY tale. Artist Mike Deodato has really impressed us (meaning me) with this one (I haven’t been so into the panel layouts and page design of a comic book since Jae Lee’s BEFORE WATCHMEN OZYMANDIAS. #Hollah!) So just who will wind up on the WALL? Find out today! Also from THE HOUSE OF IDEAS this week look for the ORIGINAL SIN tie-in UNCANNY X-MEN #25, along with CAPTAIN AMERICA #24, SPIDER-MAN 2099 #3, MIRACLEMAN #10, and more WADE WILSON in the form of DEADPOOL VS. X-FORCE #4 (of 4), and HAWKEYE vs. DEADPOOL #0. Plus… GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY fans can snag the third issues of both LEGENDARY STARLORD and ROCKET RACCOON!

SO, WHAT ELSE IS NEW THIS WEEK?
Even though this week is dominated by BIG titles from the BIG TWO, there’s still a whole lot more to choose from including Image Comics’ GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS #1, SOUTHERN BASTARDS #4, and NIGHTWORLD #2 (written by Friend of FUNNYBOOKS, Adam McGovern). There’s also the new DEATH DEFYING DR. MIRAGE #1 from Valiant Comics, lots of Pop-Culture and All-Ages, and enough new Manga to warrant its own section on our “New This Week” list, which you can check-out by scrolling down.

WELCOME JOE KUBERT STUDENTS!
September means Back to School, and that includes Back to School for the art students of the Joe Kubert School in nearby Dover! FUNNYBOOKS welcomes back all returning “Kubies” and welcomes for the first time all the new, first-year students (who are in for a boat load of work). We can’t wait to see you all again and to meet the new guys and gals who may be drawing our comics someday!

SAVE THE DATE! THE STREET FAIR IS SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 21st!
The Parsippany Fall Festival (which we mostly refer to as The Lake Hiawatha Street Fair) is just weeks away. This year the Street Fair will take place on Sunday, September 21st, and FUNNYBOOKS will be open with GREAT DEALS both inside AND outside the store (including a huge selection of Action Figures from our infamous off-site storage area) and lots of FUN to be had! Save the date for now! More details in Next Week’s E-Mail! Note: FUNNYBOOKS will remain CLOSED ON SUNDAYS until the Street Fair on September 21st!

SWEAT SHOP!
We have been having a tough time keeping this old log cabin (it really is a log cabin under the fake brick!) cool during these HOTTEST days of the year so far. Between the hours of 5pm and 7pm the store is at it’s hottest. We are working on a long term solution, but for now, dress accordingly for a more comfortable shopping experience.

That’s all for now. For the complete New This Week List, please keep scrolling. Hope 2 C U @ FUNNYBOOKS this week! – Funny Steve
