HALLOWEEN COMICFEST AT FUNNYBOOKS!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN WEEK!
Halloween may be a full week away, but FUNNYBOOKS will get things rolling THIS weekend by hosting HALLOWEEN COMICFEST 2014, right here at FUNNYBOOKS! 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. Starting at 11am on Friday, ALL GRAPHIC NOVELS, HARDCOVERS and MANGA — Basically ALL books in the store $10 and up — are BUY ONE – GET ONE HALF-PRICE! PLUS… ALL BAGGED & BOARDED BACK ISSUES, ALL DC 3-D COVERS, ALL BLANK COVERS, and ALL “NON-WALL” VARIANT COVERS, are also BUY ONE GET ONE HALF-OFF! The Same SALE will be offered ALL-DAY SATURDAY during HALLOWEEN COMICFEST!

SPECIAL DISCOUNTS FOR COSTUMES AND COSPLAY!
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!

FREE COMICS, COSTUMES & COSPLAY, AND GREAT DEALS THROUGHOUT THE STORE! Hope U can join us for HALLOWEEN COMICFEST AT FUNNYBOOKS! – Funny Steve

POPTOBER STILL POPPIN!

OCTOBER has been Action-Packed indeed, with Back-to-Back-to-Back weekends of Local Pop Culture events. First it was the the Huge Happening that was the New York Comic Con, Next it was the big 2-Day TOYCON NJ (right here in Parsippany), and now — this weekend — we get a Comic and Pop-Culture Double-Header with The Chiller Theater Horror Convention right here in Parsippany (I think at the old Tara Hotel), and HALLOWEEN COMIC FEST (which is sort of like a HALLOWEEN-THEMED FREE COMIC BOOK DAY) right here at FUNNYBOOKS, this Saturday from 10am-5pm! Costumes and Cosplay are encouraged! We will be handing-out special FREE COMICS — produced especially for HALLOWEEN COMICFEST 2014 — to everyone who stops by (while supplies last), and will offer great deals throughout the store all day, and even bigger deals to those in costume or wearing some form of costume accessary. More details will be sent in a second E-Mail in the next day or two. In the meantime, you can check-out the FREE COMICS (along with this week’s “NEW THIS WEEK” List) right here at funnyrama.com. Hope to see you Saturday!

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!

1-tie) Avengers and X-Men Axis #2 (of 9)

1-tie) Death of Wolverine #4 (of 4) (TWO covers)

3-tie) Justice League #35 (With Monsters Variant)

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).

UP NEXT! TOY CON and HALLOWEEN COMIC FEST!

Catch your POP-CULTURE breath while you can, because this weekend we will be jumping right back into it as the PARSIPPANY TOY CON returns to the PARSIPPANY P.A.L. 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!).

That’s All For Now! Please scroll down for this week’s complete NEW THIS WEEK LIST! Hope 2 C U @ FUNNYBOOKS! – Funny Steve

THOR IS A WOMAN AND SAM WILSON IS THE NEW CAPTAIN AMERICA!
October means a changing of the status quo at Marvel Comics, and despite a very strong DC Week, Marvel steals the show with their BIG MOVES involving some of their most popular and recognized characters. This week’s TOP TITLE at FUNNYBOOKS is the All-New THOR #1, which features the highly anticipated debut of the New, Female THOR! Besides the standard cover, the special collector’s item #1 issue is also available with a “draw your own – blank” cover, and a “Marvel baby” variant by artist, Skottie Young. Other more limited THOR #1 variants can be found on the wall behind the FUNNYBOOKS front counter. THOR isn’t the only AVENGER getting a Marvel Makeover today as there’s also an ALL-NEW CAPTAIN AMERICA in town! SAM WILSON (also known as THE FALCON) puts on the stars and stripes in today’s CAPTAIN AMERICA #25, becoming the first ever African American CAPTAIN AMERICA! (there’s bunch of Variants with this one too). And that’s not all!… After a two-week delay, the DEATH OF WOLVERINE continues today in DEATH OF WOLVERINE #3 (of 4), THE WINTER SOLDIER begins an All-New adventure in BUCKY BARNES WINTER SOLDIER #1, and the “classic” GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY return to star in their own new series as GUARDIANS 3000 #1 arrives with an Alex Ross cover! Adding to the Marvel bounty this week, are UNCANNY AVENGERS #25 (an AXIS tie-in), EDGE OF THE SPDER-VERSE #4 (of 5), SILVER SURFER #6, and LEGENDARY STARLORD #4, plus lots of MOON KNIGHT (two Graphic Novels and a new issue), and a new creator-owned Marvel Icon series begins as well, as Jason (Original Sin, Southern Bastards) Aaron’s End of Wrath #1 is also New This Week.

OCTOBER MEANS DC MONSTERS COVERS!
Now that all Forty-One of DC’s September FUTURES END 3-D-covered titles have made their way to the FUNNYBOOKS’ shelves, it’s time to make way for DC’s October Comics and their MONSTER Variants. Like the BOMBSHELL, BATMAN 75, and SELFIE variants, ALL MONSTER Variants are available on the FUNNYBOOKS New Comic shelves, right next to their standard counterparts, while supplies last (for cover price). This week’s first wave of MONSTER Variants can be found on the New DETECTIVE #35, ACTION #35, GREEN LANTERN #35, and GRAYSON #3. Besides the New Monster Variants, also look for a couple of straggler “SELFIE” Variants on todays JUSTICE LEAGUE #34, WONDER WOMAN #34, and BATMAN SUPERMAN #14. DC fans can also snag THREE New #1 issues today (GOTHAM ACADEMY #1, LOBO #1 and FLASH (the New TV Show) SEASON ZERO #1), and can also get in on the GREEN LANTERN / NEW GODS storyline, GODHEAD! Meanwhile, fans of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s “NEW 52″ BATMAN can snag the New BATMAN ZERO YEAR Graphic Novel (Vol. 4). The 176-pager collects BATMAN #21-24, and includes the moment the Bruce Wayne becomes BATMAN!

OCTOBER MEANS WALKING DEAD!
It’s also a pretty nice Image Comics week with Ed Brubaker’s FADE-OUT #2, and GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS #2 (with 2 covers). Also, look for TWO New Image Graphic Novels, NAILBITER Vol. 1, and Jason Aaron’s SOUTHERN BASTARDS Vol. 1 (only $10 EACH!). And best of all, get your hands on the New issue of WALKING DEAD (#132) to help you get ready for WALKING DEAD to return to your TV sets on (NYCC) Sunday, October 12th!

OCTOBER MEANS COMIC CON!
The New York Comic Con is just a week away (Oct.9th – October 12th) and NOW is the time to get ready for the biggest Comic Book event this side of the Mississippi (if you have tickets that is). One of the things you can do to prepare is to study the Guest List, and start getting stuff together to have signed by your favorite writers and artists. If you need some help with that, FUNNYBOOKS has lots of Comics and Graphic Novels by NYCC guests for you to choose from including lots and lots of those cool “blank” covers (a Comic Con Favorite!). The last thing you want to be doing at Comic Con is searching for something to buy to have signed, so PLAN AHEAD!

OCTOBER MEANS NJ TOY CON II!
October will mean “No Rest For the Weary” as the weekend immediately following Comic Con will feature the return of TOYCON NEW JERSEY to the Parsippany P.A.L. Building. The BIG, Local, TWO-DAY event will take place just minutes from FUNNYBOOKS, on Saturday October 18th (10am-6pm+) and Sunday, October 19th (9am-3pm). FUNNYBOOKS will be at the show with tables full of Action Figures from our infamous GARAGE (and who knows what else). The last TOY CON NJ (in June) was a blast (it’s where we met HARLEY and our New FUNNYFORCE GIRL, Melissa) so add it to your October Calendar!

OCTOBER MEANS HALLOWEEN!
We don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves, but of course, October also means HALLOWEEN is on the way and HALLOWEEN is always HUGE at FUNNYBOOKS. This year, FUNNYBOOKS will once again take part in HALLOWEEN COMIC FEST (an industry-wide event, like FREE COMIC BOOK DAY). FUNNYBOOKS will be hosting HALLOWEEN COMIC FEST 2014 right here at FUNNYBOOKS on Saturday, October 25th and will be handing out an assortment of specially-produced HALLOWEEN “mini-comics” to everyone (young AND not so young) who stops by — costumes are extremely encouraged!

GIVE COMICS, NOT CANDY!
Now YOU can hand-out COMIC BOOKS at your house for Halloween (just like we do here at FUNNYBOOKS)! This week we will begin offering special 20-count bundles of special mini-HALLOWEEN COMICS — Choose from ARCHIE, ANGRY BIRDS, and the BOOM HALLOWEEN SAMPLER. Each 20 count bundle is $6 (that’s 30 cents a comic — your cost). With all the bad things we now know about sugar, candy is slowly going out of fashion as a HALLOWEEN TREAT, Mini-Comics are a great healthy alternative that’s still FUN (plus, you may just introduce someone to their first ever comic!).

I think I covered just about everything super important! We hope 2 C U @ FUNNYBOOKS for the 12-Hour New Comic Day — 10am-10pm EVERY Wednesday (or during our many other convenient shopping hours). – Funny Steve
