Mike’s New Comics Day Lunchtime Update 3004.

§ November 7th, 2007 § Filed under lunchtime update Comments Off on Mike’s New Comics Day Lunchtime Update 3004.

1. Today’s sales: everybody wants the Heroes hardcover. Nobody wants the Dark Tower hardcover.

2. If you ever thought I was kinda sketchy…well, here’s proof.

3. We were shorted several items in our Diamond shipment this week, including the new non-Gerber Howard the Duck. I don’t think I’ll miss it.

4. “Mike, you’re not serious about playing Arlo Guthrie’s album Alice’s Restaurant at the shop every day ’til Thanksgiving?” “Yes…yes, I am.”

5. And this week’s winner of the “Whoops, Forgot to Put A Price on The Cover” is Witchblade #111! Take a bow, Witchblade #111! Whoa, don’t bend over too far, you’ll pop out.


6. Why do we have an “Essence of Buffy the Vampire Slayer” statue? Where did it come from? Why is it here? What shadowy motivations drove us to order it? Is it actually a special order for a customer or (gulp) did our finger slip when entering the orders?

7. Hey, Diamond, where did our case of McFarlane Dragons (AKA “the McFarlane figures that still sell”) go?

7a. Speaking of McFarlane figures, I imagine that all the pieces from the Twisted X-Mas set that had the misfortune of not being the “Mrs. Claus” figure will be available at extremely reduced prices very shortly.

8. Best comic this week: Groo: Hell on Earth #1. Instead of buying one of each cover of Astonishing X-Men, just buy one ASM and buy a Groo, too. God will smile upon you for doing so.
