FREE COMIC BOOK DAY ENCORE THIS SATURDAY
Please join us THIS Saturday, May 21st, for the FUNNYBOOKS’ FREE COMIC BOOK DAY ENCORE! We will be bringing back ALL of this year’s FREE COMICS (with a couple of exceptions) and — once again — will be offering them for FREE to anyone who stops by (this time from 12noon-5pm). Besides the FREE COMICS, we will also have several COOL DOOR PRIZES (including more CAP and IRON MAN CIVIL WAR “DORBZ”) and we will be bringing back our FREE COMIC BOOK DAY Storewide Sale! ALL this plus, right next door — you can experience THE FINAL SATURDAY AT THE FUNCAVE with an event we’ve nicknamed, MINNYRAMA!

MINNYRAMA THIS SATURDAY 12noon-5pm
Help kick-off FUNNYBOOKS 24th Birthday Celebration this Saturday from 12NOON-5pm at the FUNCAVE! We have several local COMIC BOOK CREATORS lined-up, including our headliner, CHARLES PAUL WILSON III — the artist of the New York Times Best-Seller STUFF OF LEGEND. Charles will be appearing from 2pm-5pm, and we will have copies of STUFF OF LEGEND available for you to have signed. Also on the bill is Funny “Action” Steve (ME!) who will be making a “rare appearance” to sign copies of the Newly-released ACTION FIGURE KINGDOMs #5 & #6. Plus, FUNNYBOOKS First Customer EVER, ZIGGY, will be there too, doing sketches and signing copies of his OPERATION PAJAMA PANTS Hard Cover (and probably being goofy!), and several other local comic book creators and artists will also be there displaying their creations!

COSPLAY PHOTO OPS!
Several COSPLAYERS will be joining us for MINNYRAMA, and you can get some great photos with CAPTAIN AMERICA, TINKERBELL, and MINNYBOOKS (between 12NOON and 3pm). If you want to cosplay with us, put on your best costume and JOIN THE FUN! All this, plus the THOUSANDS of HALF-PRICE COMICS that the FUNCAVE has to offer, will make MINNYRAMA the place to be this Saturday!

THE END OF THE FUNCAVE?
Time flies when you’re having FUNCAVE! Our Finally-Named , HALF-PRICE, Comic Book Outlet (located right next door to FUNNYBOOKS), is closing for GOOD next week. So if you haven’t had a chance to stop by and SHOP our THOUSANDS of HALF-PRICED COMICS, Hundreds of GRAPHIC NOVELS, Tables of DISCOUNTED ACTION FIGURES, and all kinds of other goodies (T-shirts, Posters and Manga just added this week!), you’re running out of time!!! Your next chance to shop will be during today’s 12-HOUR NEW COMIC DAY (the FUNCAVE will be open from 3pm-9pm). We will also be open this Friday (probably late-afternoon into the evening — call ahead), and ALL-DAY SATURDAY 10:30-6ish (with MINNYRAMA between 12NOON and 5pm). Having a Huge Space filled with half-price Comics & Stuff right next to FUNNYBOOKS is a very rare occurrence, so please try your best to check it out before it’s gone — NEXT WEEK!

MIDNIGHT REBIRTH NEXT TUESDAY!
We don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves, but we wanted to let everyone know that FUNNYBOOKS will be taking part in the MIDNIGHT RELEASE of DC’s REBIRTH #1, next Tuesday Night! Look for a Special REBIRTH E-Mail, early next week, with all the details!

That’s all for now! See you at FUNNYBOOKS, and at the FUNCAVE! – Funny Steve

BONUS FREE COMICS!
Stop by FUNNYBOOKS this Wednesday (10-10), Thursday (11-8), or Friday (11-8) for the FINAL FREE COMIC BOOK DAY BONUS VOUCHER which will score you an EXTRA TWO FREE COMICS on FREE COMIC BOOK DAY — THIS SATURDAY, May 7th (9am-9pm). Although you DO NOT NEED A BONUS VOUCHER to get FREE COMICS on FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, you’re probably going to want to pick at least an extra TWO after checking-out our list of FREE COMIC BOOK DAY titles at funnyrama.com

BIGGEST FREE COMIC DAY EVER!
We are SUPER EXCITED to bring everyone the most ambitious FREE COMIC BOOK DAY we have ever attempted, with COSPLAY (join us beginning at NOON), SKETCH ARTISTS (beginning after 10am), and a whole EXTRA BUILDING filled with thousands of HALF-PRICED COMICS and Discounted Action Figures. All this plus — of course — FREE COMICS FOR EVERYONE!!! This FREE COMIC BOOK DAY is going to be so epic that even NEWS12 New Jersey will be including FREE COMIC BOOK DAY in their weekend coverage during this Friday Morning’s shows. Our very final FREE COMIC BOOK DAY Info (including FUNNYBOOKS’ SALE details) will be included in a one last FUNNYBOOKS’ FREE COMIC BOOK DAY E-mail at the end of the week. … Because right now, it’s time for the FIRST NEW COMIC DAY in May!

MAY THE 4th BE WITH YOU!
What a week for FANS OF FUNNYBOOKS! Not only are both FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, and CAPTAIN AMERICA III CIVIL WAR, just days away, but this week’s NEW COMIC DAY happens to fall on STAR WARS DAY! MAY THE 4th be with EVERYONE! — The only one not caring about STAR WARS DAY today, is apparently FRANK CASTLE, because Marvel’s All-New PUNISHER #1 (by Becky Cloonan and Steve “PREACHER” Dillon) is FUNNYBOOKS’ TOP TITLE this week, just beating out this week’s STAR WARS title, POE DAMERON #2. The PUNISHER also sits in our THIRD spot this week, thanks to the new DAREDEVIIL PUNISHER #1 – which should be snatched-up by everyone considering how popular the DAREDEVIL PUNISHER stuff on Netflix is. Marvel completes a Sweep of our TOP FIVE with the New THUNDERBOLTS #1 (Starring WINTER SOLDIER), and INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #9 (a CIVIL WAR II lead-in). Both titles are hitting the shelves at the perfect time considering WINTER SOLDIER and IRON MAN are big players in this week’s CAPTAIN AMERICA III (which we can’t wait to see!). Check-out our TOP TITLES LIST below to see what else we are expecting to be in-demand this week (including the new WALKING DEAD #154), and for this week’s COMPLETE NEW THIS WEEK LIST, please scroll down.

NOTE: If you are thinking about snagging this week’s New Comics during this weekend’s FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, you may want to avoid that plan, and instead stop by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday for this week’s stuff, as we will be re-merchandizing the store on Friday night, removing all NEW THIS WEEK tags, and taking down a bunch of floppies in favor of displaying our best Graphic Novels and other Merch on FREE COMIC DAY.
