Third Stephen King Midnight Release party a huge success!

WOW! That was completely awesome! Our "ALL COMIC IN THE BINS ARE ONE DOLLAR ALL DAY Sale" kicked things off at 10AM, and the "20% OFF EVERYTHING IN THE ENTIRE STORE FROM 9pm-1am Sale" wrapped things up in a nice, day-long celebration of comic book goodness! Thanks to all of you who came out to take advantage of the bargains, and special thanks to all of you adventurous types who braved the late-night after-hours counter monkey antics in anticipation of the release of Stephen King's DARK TOWER: TREACHERY #1 and THE STAND: CAPTAIN TRIPS #1! Linnen, you are a champ (and thanks Sarah for getting the pizza!), Manager Joe was his usual knowledgeable "Continuity Kid" self, and I have no idea where I was going with that bizarre sleep-deprived monologue about juice-glasses full of scotch. Thanks everybody!

Keep your eyes on this site for announcements about future events, including the long-rumored and highly anticipated "Artist Cookout" coming soon to the Mechanicsbug store.

(Oh, and special thanks go out to "Ma" Boyce for the peanut cluster thingies... they were delicious as usual!)

1st Prize - Stephen King autographed dust jacket - Michael Dimopoulos

Thanks for the kind words!

It was great fun pulling counter-duty till the middle of the night. I got to meet a lot of cool folks and fellow Stephen King fans.

Hopefully a good time was had by all!
