Anyway, keep your eyes peeled here for more of the evolving reporting on that front.

In the meantime, Free Comic Book Day is THIS SATURDAY! We’ll open at 10:00AM and run until ??? – we got 20 BOXES of books to give out this year and we’ll be swinging heavy until we run out! Adam Warrock and Viet Hyunh will be slinging the jokes and the raps starting at 8:00. Find out more RIGHT HERE!!

Oh! And check it out, there’s new books coming out this week:

More C2E2 2013 to Come!

Hey Super-Flyers, Max here. We’ve had a lot of fun and took a lot of pictures today (a lot!) and we’re doing our best to format & post them as soon as possible. However, our wireless hotspot’s batteries are dying and it’s getting really late, so look for some content laden posts to come! Just be a leeetle bit patient with us! In the meantime, check out our Facebook page and Twitter feed for C2E2 and store news! Check out the C2E2 webpage! And don’t forget our Magic: The Gathering: Dragon’s Mage Pre-Release happening today at the store at 1 pm!!!

Brace yourselves, free comics are coming…

Free Comic Book Day is around the corner!
This year it happens on May 4th! We’re gonna be hootin’ and a hollerin’ all day, so come early and stay late!
The day will be hallmarked by in-store appearances of Rusty Shackles (artist extraordinaire behind this year’s poster – as well as our previous ones), Adam Hicks (Gigatoast on deviant art), Pat Baumgartner, and more!

Free comics while supplies last, we’re changing our hours to 10AM – 10 PM for the day, but be sure to come early as we tend to run out. In-store sales will be 50% off back issues and 25% off everything else!

AND OF COURSE, THE MAIN EVENT AS INDICATED BY THE POSTER ARTS:
FREE Performances by Adam Warrock (with the hippity-hops and the nerdily-oriented raps) and Viet Huynh (telling the jokey-jokes) will start at 8pm!
Further, you can obtain one of these posters for your very own for the low-low cost of $10 -OR- FREE with $50 purchase in-store the day of!

Below is a list of the comics we’ll have for FREE distribution:

All books everything! (Well, and some other stuff too – look, its a Trinidad James joke, alright?! Can’t we just appreciate some subtle humor in our culture anymore?! Jeeze!!)

Boyoboy, we’ve got quite the witch’s brew cooking hereabouts! Also, colloquialisms!
We’ve got six and a half longboxes of assorted back issue stock filtering out over the next couple of days. We’ve undertaken a minor major overhaul of our layout – my favorite game is “guess what Tony moved in the store since you were last in” – there’s no prizes but your own sense of self-satisfaction, but who could put a price on that?

You can and SHOULD buy C2E2 tickets HERE still. It’ll be the only way to see Jared DJ (unless you’re some kind of wizard and go to his other shows), as well as your only chance to witness our live panel, wherein we promise to make the biggest buffoons of ourselves the township of Chicago has ever seen!

If you keep your eyes REALLY CLOSE to this space, you may learn some fantastic things about our Dragons Maze prerelease tournament (that’s Magic: the Gathering for you layfolk) and our FREE COMIC BOOK DAY happenings!

Oh! And in case you were interested, there’s some stuff coming out next week too!
