Whew. That’s only scratching the surface and doesn’t even cover a few pallets of new toys (Ahem, cough cough cough Er, that was formerly a link to Boba Fett from Hasbro’s new Star Wars Black 6″ figure series but you kids subsequently went ape and sold us out the same day). See ya tomorrow.
Electricity and running water have kicked in again for much of lower Manhattan and we are open for the first time since last Sunday.
Items of note:
We will be closing at 10pm every day until Wednesday the 7th. In fact, today, in the interest of safety for all involved, we may close slightly earlier. 9ish, depending on a few factors. Be sure to call in advance, please.
We do not have new comics and toys from this past week as UPS was not delivering to our area. We hope to receive the shipment from October 31st this coming Monday, but that is not guaranteed. Keep an eye out on this site, our Facebook page, and/or our Twitter feed for updates. We’re aware some of our competitors have gotten their shipments but we are deeply appreciative of our customers and will definitely make it worth your while to pick up your comics from us.
Everything in the shop is ON SALE!!! 15% Off everything for everyone through Tuesday the 6th. Well, not exactly everything. T-shirt deals and other discounts do not apply, but that’s not too shabby. Right?
CHARITY DRIVE: Obviously, the impact of Hurricane Sandy has left many in our area devastated. This has been a local tragedy of unprecedented proportions and we are fully aware life is not so great for a lotta people right now. That being said Forbidden Planet is holding a charity drive for victims of the Hurricane in Staten Island, The Rockaways, City Island, New Jersey et al. If you have canned foods, bottled water, fresh batteries, flashlights you can bring by the shop as a donation we will give you a bag of the free comics we prepared to give away on Halloween. You can see the list of freebies here.
On a personal level, many of my friends and family have it way worse than I do, but FP is my slight solace and I hope it will be for those who come by this weekend.
All my hopes and wishes go out to you and your families.
Thursday, December 29th and Friday, December 30th 10am-midnight
Saturday, December 31st 10am-6pmISH
Sunday, January 1st 10am-10pm
*Please note that New Comic Day IS Wednesday, the 28th, but our shipment will arrive that morning as opposed to the day before… Meaning that new comics and toys will probably not be shelf-ready nor racked until the mid-afternoon as we process them as quickly as we can. Most likely we will have everything out and good to go by 2:30 or 3pm.
Each week we offer our customers a limited, one-day-only (new comic day, to be exact) deep discount on a new graphic novel or comic book.
This week’s floppy for the frugal is Daredevil Reborn #1 for 50% OFF.

The apocalyptic events of SHADOWLAND have left the once-proud legacy of Daredevil in tatters. Now, far from the mean streets of Hell’s Kitchen, a new evil is rising, and the only man crazy enough to face it is a man with nothing left to lose. The road to Hell was paved with good intentions, but the long road to redemption is the far harder path…
We are selling this issue for just $1.99 until 11:59pm EST on January 12th.
