Acme E-Mail Update for 4.23.14 - Are You Ready to WarRock?!

ACME COMICS

As sometimes happens in the industry, three weeks ago all copies of All-New Marvel NOW Moon Knight #2 arrived damaged and unsellable.

Typically in these situations, we report the issue to our distributor, Diamond Comics, and they refill the affected books within a week. In this case though, the status came up “back-ordered” (no more copies currently available). We were not content with this outcome and we had to become creative in order to get copies to customers who “subscribed” (pre-ordered) in advance!

Enter the great comics community and network of retailers! We’ve been re-supplied by Challengers Comics & Conversation in Chicago, Midtown Comics in New York, Apocalypse Comics in Myrtle Beach and other great shops to get us the quantity we need to satisfy you, the customer! Thus, Moon Knight #2 subscriptions will be filled with your pulls tonight and they’ll be waiting with your regular new releases for pick-up tomorrow!

Sometimes things DO work out!

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.

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!
