So, we’re giving away two extra large (XL) copies of this shirt away today on our Twitter feed. Don’t worry. Neither of these freebie tees are the one I’ve worn on and off to bed for the last eight years. Unless you want it to be. Follow us and RT. And good luck, creeps!
On Hobbit Day 2012, here’s to my father, who I’ll be forever grateful to for reading THIS edition to me when I was 4 years old on a warm spring afternoon in front of my living room window in The Bronx. What’s your favorite Hobbit memory?
Forgot to post these new Google+ Hangout videos from last week. Here’s Matt and Alec talking Sons of Anarchy, WWE, NYCC, re-creating telephone calls Alec receives from customers, Just Us League MAD toys and a whole lot more… And here’s me from my desk… “Haven’t even had time since the move to put pictures of [...]
So this has been released: I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. Seriously though, I’ve watched the current trailer about fifteen times now and I can’t tell if I’m jazzed for these films (3?!) or if I’m eager to watch a beautiful, elegant disaster onscreen. Either way Jackson and co. are gonna separate some [...]
Got 28 minutes of your life to spend on Matt and I talking new arrivals, Happy #1, Space Punisher, crappy old Image Comics, movies, Star Trek the Next generation, comic cons, Mark Hamill and Corvette Summer? Like hearing me say “um?” Have I got a video for you! Sorry if it’s a little dark this [...]
Some goofs on our first take. The store’s wi-fi cut out for about five minutes, thus making us late for the 4pm Hangout On Air. We missed a chance to have a prominent celebrity customer join us because of the delay in setting back up, and I still have a lot to learn about the [...]
We are indeed on Google+. Come share wonderful, geeky stuff with us! I’ll be Hanging out On Air at 4pm today… fingers crossed. Still working out the logistics, but the plan is to chat from the new shop’s basement as we process this week’s shipment, discuss some of tomorrow’s new releases, make a really neat-o [...]
Hell, we practically are already. Take a look around the shop sometime and you’ll realize our customers and staff comprise our own rather large Invisbles cell. The uninitiated will ask, “What is The Invisibles?” Well, it’s way way too complicated to describe here properly and succinctly, but I’ll give you the publisher’s copy: Follow the [...]
Have you seen this yet? It got out earlier today and I gotta say I’m really digging it!!! E.T. tends to vacillate into my top 5 favorite flicks list every few years, and this new poster definitely has rekindled my enthusiasm for the Spielberg masterpiece. Praise Jeebus! Has it been 30 years since I saw E.T. [...]
The New York Comic Con is this weekend, and I shall not be attending. I feel I have let myself down; and should you find yourself in the same boat, you should feel the same way. After all, this is not San Diego, Monteal, or Tokyo. My excuse is that I live in a cave [...]
Unca Grant as one angry, frilly-shirted badass vs. My Chemical Romance Redemption: The sequel to one of the most ambitious SF cinema flops of all time is expected to become one of the biggest films of all time. What’s happening to my special purpose? Action Flick Chick as The Baroness NYCC Vanity: Jeff Ayers on [...]
The Weekly Planet, FPNYC’s newsletter for in-store customers, celebrated its four year anniversary last week. Since that first sweltering summer night we hand-copied and stapled a coupla hundred 8×11 sheets of copy paper on which I wrote an impassioned letter to members of our comic book subscription program back in 2006, to that sweltering summer [...]
For those of you who’ve not experienced NIGHTMARE’s annual haunted houses the last few years here in NYC you’re really missing out. Those in the know will tell ya, the productions are top notch, the creatives involved dedicated and intensely passionate, and the whole shebang is usually a scarifying adrenaline rush rarely obtained outside of an encounter with a Lamia (watched Sam Raimi’s Drag Me to Hell last night, hence the reference… Man alive was that neat-0). NIGHTMARE creator Timothy Haskell and his crew work on this show all year long and it shows.
Umbrella Academy vol 02: Dallas TP- A fractured team gets thrust into new adventure involving a plot to kill JFK. An FP bestseller, The Umbrella Academy Dallas maintains the vibrant cool of volume one with Dallas well. Written by Gerard Way (lead singer of My Chemical Romance and a former guest of FP and an overall swell fella) with glorious art by Gabriel Ba (Casanova), who never disappoints.
