Comics & Items Shipping This Week

There’s a whole lot of stuff to do to get ready for this year’s Free Comic Book Day. It’s this Saturday, May 1st, and we’re running a 25% off everything sale, plus half-off on all back issues AND we’ll also have a ton of new clearance graphic novels hitting the shelves that day for the first time. Did I mention that? Probably. Plus, for every $50 you spend, you can get the next in our line of Super-Fly FCBD Original T-Shirts. This year it’s the Avengers “Get the Band Back Together” Tour shirt, featuring art from Rusty Shackles (pictured at left). Rusty will be in the shop, selling prints, doing sketches and being awesome. In addition to all that Free Comic Book Day madness, you have the following books and cool stuff to look forward too, all of which listed after the break. Also, don’t forget another Super-Fly Live art show Saturday, May 8th from 2pm to 7pm. Resident DJ JFX316 spins the tracks while artists do their thing to the shock and awe those around.

A one-two punch of special events: Next Super-Fly Live Art Show May 8th

With all the talk and hype about Free Comic Book day, you’d think that we’d be focusing on solely on that. But we here at Super-fly are an ambidextrous bunch. That’s why the week after Free Comic Book day, May 8th, we’ll be hosting our second Live Art Show in store. The first one went over very well and we’re doing it again. Starting at 2pm and going all day, artists will be creating artwork of various styles and genres, all to the eclectic soundtrack of our resident DJ, JFX316. We invite you to come out and enjoy the event, either as an artist, a music fan or just an interested party. If you are interested in participating as an artist, please email us at SuperFlyComics@gmail.com and let us know what type of art you’re planning on doing so we can have an appropriate idea of how much space we need.

Hope we see you soon.

Free Comic Book Day 2010! Free Comics & the Biggest Sale of the Year!

We all know what time is coming up: Free Comic Book Day! Same as every year (well, except for the first few years they had it), the first Saturday in May (and this year it’s May 1st) is the happiest day in a comic book living person’s life! This year we’ve got more comic books than ever, for a wide range of interests. This year we’ll have 28 books that will be given away, one per title per customer (yes, that’s right, you can take up to 28 unique Free Comics!) and they are:

ARCHIES SUMMER SPLASH, ARTIFACTS FIRST LOOK, BONGO COMICS FREE FOR ALL, DOCTOR SOLAR MAGNUS ROBOT HUNTER, FRACTURED FABLES, GREEN HORNET, IRREDEEMABLE #1, KIZOIC SHREK & PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR, MOUSE GUARD FRAGGLE ROCK FLIP BOOK, SIXTH GUN #1, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG HIDE SEEK DESTROY #1, STUFF OF LEGEND & MORTAL INSTRUMENTS
TICK #1 SPECIAL EDITION, TOY STORY, SUPERMAN: WAR OF THE SUPERMEN, WEATHERCRAFT, WORLDS OF ASPEN, YOW THE JOHN STANLEY LIBRARY, ATOMIC ROBO AND FRIENDS, DC KIDS MEGA SAMPLER 2010 EDITION, FEARLESS DAWN ASYLUM PRESS SAMPLER, GI JOE A REAL AMERICAN HERO #155 1/2, IRON MAN/SUPERNOVA, IRON MAN & THOR, LIBRARY OF AMERICAN COMICS #0, ONI PRESS FREE FOR ALL, OWLY & FRIENDS, RADICAL BIGGER BOOKS BIGGER VALUE.

In addition to the Free Comics, we’ll also be running our biggest sale of the year: 25% Off everything in the Store! Yup, free stuff and an awesome sale, you can’t beat that! OH WAIT, YES WE CAN! We’ll also have 50% Off all of our Back Issue Comics and 50% off select clearance graphic novels, many of which will be hitting clearance for the first time that day! Yes, that’s half off! Yes, I am in fact that serious!

I’m not even going to do the whole “Oh hey, that’s it” thing and then go “BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE,” because there is more and I’m not going to sit here and be disingenuous when it comes to Free Comic Book Day. We will, as always, have our loyal troops in uniform: the 501st Storm Trooper Legion, led by Lord Vader himself. This year we’ll also have artists in the shop drawing, selling sketches and doing commissions, including Rusty Shackles, of Comic Alliance.com fame and Oni Press’ Resurrection series. Rusty has also set us up with a whopper of FCBD promo, the Avengers “Getting the Band Back Together” image, celebrating the return of the classic line-up of Avengers in this May’s Avengers #1. For every $50 you spend, you’ll be able to get this commemorative tour shirt, a retail value of $19.99, for FREE while supplies last.

When you put all of these together, I don’t think you’ll be able to find a better Free Comic Day around. That’s right kids: Super-Fly Comics & Games: A Free Comic Book Day you can believe in!

Gem City Comic-Con Tomorrow! Huge Deals!

For all you folks in the Dayton area looking to dip your toes into the convention scene, this weekend is your chance to see what all the fuss is about. For those of you already in the know, you’ve seen how much fun the Gem City Comic-Con is and can’t wait for tomorrow. If you’re fans of us, in addition to being smart and pretty, you’re going to want to find us there tomorrow! We’ll have 25% off Back Issues and Back Issue comic sets, Graphic Novels up to 50% off and Magic Cards 25% off (including 1/2 off our $1 rares!). We processed tons of new boxes that haven’t hit the regular store floor yet for this show so this is your first chance to grab some goodies before they’re all gone. For more info about the Con itself, here’s organizer Jesse Noble…

Can you believe that this is the 5th annual Gem City Comic Con? It seems like it was just yesterday. I asked the question, “Do ya think Dayton can support a yearly comic con”? Five years later the answer is still a resounding YES! So fans, this is your show. Congrats and thanks for making it a success. Now let me tell you about this year’s Gem City Comic Con!
We have an outstanding group of featured guests this year: Jim Valentino (Image Comics Co-founder), Don Rosa (Legendary Disney Ducks artist and writer), Steve Scott (X-Men Forever, Green Lantern, New Warriors), and Tom Nguyen (Army of Darkness, Ghostbusters).
But that’s not all! We have brought back fan favorites like Dan Davis, Terry Huddleston, Chad Lambert, Mike Maydak, Kevin Meinart, Sean Forney, Scott D.M. Simmons, Andy Bennett, Dave Aikins, WAC, Josh Medors and Dara Naraghi, for your enjoyment.
Don’t forget our “Creator Room”. Creators like Molly Durst, Stratos, Dustin Carson, Linda Chute and Dan Taylor represent the cutting edge and dissident voices of sequential story telling.
This year we have a number of great panels for you to attend and learn something about the hobby we all enjoy so much! First, Dara Naragh presents “How to Break In (and Stay In) the Comics Biz”. This will feature a number of comic pros who know what they are talking about. Then later today Matt Zoleman will present “Creating Digital Comic Art – Exploring the benefits and limitations of using software to create comic book art”.
Sponsor Bell Book and Comic are back again this year with a great slate of tournaments for you to enter and win some prizes! Plus, there will be game demos and all day gaming!
This year Gem City Comic Con and Comicrelated.com are teaming up with the Hero Initiative to bring you the Comicrelated.com Live Charity Auction benefiting the Hero Initiative. The auction will raise money to help the Hero Initiative help comic creators in need. This is a great chance for you to give back to the creators who have given you so much enjoyment over the years.
So the only thing left for me to tell you is , follow this link (http://www.gemcitycomiccon.com/uploads/images/WebSiteCoupon.jpg) for a coupon to the Gem City Comic Con website. Print that off and redeem it at the door for $1 off your admission. Be sure to forward this to all your friends so they can share with the fun and savings!
Doors open from 10 am til 5 pm at the Wright State University Student Union (3640 Colonel Glenn Hwy. Dayton, Ohio 45435-0001). Regular admission is $6, children under 10 get in for free. A limited number of VIP tickets are still available. A VIP ticket package comes with a ton of GCCC Premiums and Exclusives. Call Fearless Readers (937)252-3036 to reserve yours today.

As we head into the Heroic Age, Jonathan Hickman takes a look back into the past of the Marvel universe’s most mysterious and important organization, S.H.I.E.L.D! How far back? Dawn of time, perhaps? Early encounters with Galactus, we think? Connections with a family with the last name “Richards,” I wonder? And hey, who is Leonardo DaVinci, and why is he an agent of SHIELD? Also this week, we shed some much needed light on the Flash in a 2010 SECRET FILES AND ORIGINS SPECIAL, BATMAN & ROBIN delve deeper into the mystery that is the Return of Bruce Wayne, the MARVEL ZOMBIES won’t…stop…coming, Jeph Loeb continues the renaissance of mutants in the Ultimate universe in ULTIMATE X and everybody is Hulks in WORLD WAR HULKS.
