From the vault - 20th Anniversary Edition Part 8

Here's a real knee-slapper... an unused cover for ALL-STEVE COMICS:


(I'll be posting more ALL-STEVE goodness soon!)

I'm pretty sure that Steve did this art when we were in the first Delco Plaza location... note Ned's glasses and rat-tail! And we have been faithfully vacuuming money out of Steve's wallet for twenty years now!

Our 20th Anniversary Sale is chugging along nicely... it was great to see so many familiar faces and reminisce... and remember you still have TWO MORE DAYS to soak up the 20% discount on EVERYTHING, and scoop all the back issues you can for a mere 50¢ each!

Speaking of SCOOP, we were featured on the pop-culture website SCOOP today... click HERE to see the entire article and while you're at it, sign up for their daily pop-culture newsletter! Thanks SCOOP folks!

HA! All Steve was great, I miss them! Please Steve, bring it back.

I agree, it was great fun to see so many familiar faces. I was amazed at how many of our customers have shopped at our various incarnations over the last 20 years. So many fun memories.....

What was YOUR first memory of Comix Connection? Do you remember the first comic you bought from us?

Thank you all for a fantastic 20 years, you guys are the best!

Congratulations on the 20th Anniversary. They should make a video biography or historical documentary to tell their story.

Best wishes,

I remember the first time I went in the Comix Connection was in either 1988 or 1989.. I bought an Uncanny X-men that Bookland was out of in the Secret Wars days. I can't remember the issue number (I would look it up in my collection if it wasn't several 2000 miles away.) I went into the old store beside the pizza place and was both enthralled by the comic goodness here. I think I signed up for a subscription that same night.
