Happy Americaday everybody! And what better way to celebrate the day that The United States became a thing that everybody was saying, than with a gigantic sale! And what better way to kick off a gigantic sale! than with a gigantic pile of comics! And as luck would have it, that’s precisely what Dan and I, your humble director Morgan, have in store for you today. What comics, you ask? SO MANY COMICS I blurt back while flinging Cape 1969 #1, I Told You So, God and Science, and Avengers Vs X-Men #7 in your general direction.
That’s right. We’re discounting EVERYTHING in our store on Wednesday, July 4th. We don’t do this often (maybe once a year… maybe), so come on by and take advantage!
Plus, this year the 4th of July falls on a Wednesday… New Comics Day! A ton of great new comics and graphic novels are scheduled to come out that day, and you’ll be able to apply the discount to all of ’em to boot.
Please note, store hours will be 9am-9pm that day, rather than the usual Wednesday 9am-12am.
UPDATE: Mail order customers, be sure to be on our email list (you can join in the upper right-hand corner of this page) before Tuesday July 3rd. That day we’ll be sending out a code for extra discounts on our webstore!

Happy 4th of July FPNYC faithful. If you’re anything like me, you’ll be drunk by 2, bbqing and watching Battlestar Galatica on Netflix. Maybe some fireworks. I dunno, Battlestar is really good and fireworks may require me to leave my apartment. Either way, with less than 20 days until Marvel Studios’ “Captain America“, today’s the best day to do your patriotic Nerd duty and swing by the store or the website and pick up some Cap swag. We have a huge selection of comics, shirt, toys and other Cap-based merch in stock, so finding something relevant to your all-American interests won’t be too hard! Also keep your eyes out for the upcoming “Captain America” #1 by Ed Brubaker and Steve McNiven, continuing Ed’s fantastic run on Cap’s book. The current Cap series is getting a new co-writer Marc Andreyko with pencils by the underrated and awesome Chris Samnee. Both books are definitely worth the money, but I have to admit I’m more excited for the Bru/Andreyko/Samee book for the insane amount of talent attached to the title. Continue reading
If E.T is listening I hope he’s listening to WKCR’s (Columbia University) annual Louis Armstrong 4th of July birthday broadcast… comma baby… If you can get down with 39.5 hours of Satchmo (1/4th of which you may have to sit through Phil Schaap, but trust me it’s worth it) the live feed can be found here.
