Its something I've wanted to try ever since I first opened the store nearly 25 years ago.

Mostly for curiosity sake, just HOW many people would actually show up at the store in the wee hour of the a.m. to save a few bucks?
The main thing was finding an excuse to try it, and the NEW DC 52 event is just such an excuse.

Now normally NO store is allowed to sell any of it's NEW comics before 9:00 a.m. on the Wednesday they are scheduled for. But DC Comics is only sending out 2 books for Wednesday August 31st. Flashpoint #5, the wrap-up to the hugely popular crossover, and Justice League #1, the first comic set in the NEW DC UNIVERSE. And the distributor has authorized the advance sale of these 2 books as of 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday.

So for just this one time(unless it proves popular enough) I will be opening the store at

11:00 p.m. on Tuesday August 30Th for a special 2 hour sale ending at 1:00 a.m.

Now you have to understand that ONLY those 2 new comics, Flashpoint #5 and Justice League #1, will be available for sale. -AND NOT UNTIL AFTER MIDNIGHT-NO other new comics for the week will be on the shelves until 10:00a.m. when the store opens as usual.

BUT, everything in the store will be on sale at 20% off, and as a special reward...anyone who pre-ordered ALL 52 titles(or signs up to buy them that night), will be given a special discount of 52% off any DC trade paperbacks on the shelves.

So come by TUESDAY AUGUST 30th at 11:00 p.m. to help us make history and usher in the NEW DC UNIVERSE, and pick up some great deals for yourself while you're here.
