Acme First Look #337 for 4.23.14

Dealing with a situation this morning in which Envy jumped through the kitchen window last night because she was so excited to see our next door neighbor. Luckily, she got through the ordeal with just a cut on her paw and piece of plywood in the frame until next week, but I’m working from home at the moment.

Acme First Look #336 for 4.16.14

If you’d like to come help us stamp the Free Comic Book Day books and earn some store credit, THE TIME IS NOW!!!

The majority of the 35,000 Free Comic Book Day issues, or 1.75 tons of comics, we purchased to give away on May 3rd arrived yesterday around 2 PM! We got them all counted before quittin’ time, but didn’t have the energy to stage them for volunteers until this morning.

Now we’re gonna try to knock out a Cap Winter Soldier podcast and get on to seeing about ordering books for June!

Resolution WEEK 16 Accountability: 17 this week! If things have settled into such a comfortable pattern, doesn’t seem like there’s much reason to keep this running tally going.

ACME COMICS

FREEDOM PREVAILS!

Based on the weekend box office numbers on Captain America: the Winter Soldier, 95 millions dollars on top of 207 million dollars overseas, we can tell the movie was a blockbuster hit!

Almost every customer has wanted to discuss the movie and due to that level of interest, our Captain America display was hit incredibly hard, but we’re looking to restock before FCBD! It is not too late for new fans that want to see how Ed Brubaker & Steve Epting’s controversial introduction of the Winter Soldier unfolded in the comics!

Tune in to this Friday’s Acmecast #192 for all of our thoughts and insights on the Winter Soldier! And tune in tonight for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which will deal with the game-changing events of Captain America!
