Comics weren't on sale until 1PM today.
We open at 11AM.
Thank you, UPS!
Also, thank you for apparently losing the box containing the $100 Robotech action figure one of our customers special-ordered.
Thank you, all of our customers, for being very, very understanding about the fact that our shipment was very, very late today. I really appreciated the way you didn't stand there and stare at me as I unpacked boxes and counted comics to make sure we weren't completely shafted by the Diamond warehouse workers.
And thank you to all the people who decided that today was a good day to come in and go through all of our boxes of back-issues. It really made the job of unpacking all of those Diamond boxes and counting the comics so much easier, and faster too, because I had to continually stop to help you find a back issue you desperately needed right away.
And finally, thank you SDCC and the producers of comic-book movies. Every time you get any kind of attention from the mainstream press I get to deal with phone calls and walk-ins of people thinking they're going to get rich by selling their old comic books. I especially like it when you call me up and ask me how much a Hulk comic from the 70s is worth. Oh, no, don't give me an issue number or any realistic idea of what condition it might be in, so that I would be able to hazard a guess as to whether or not we might need it or be interested in purchasing it. It's much easier for you to hold it up to the phone so that I can peer at it through the phone-line.
