For that hard-to-buy-for comic fan
Thursday, November 27, 2008
I give thanks that Ben Franklin didn't have his way because I would feel weird eating the national symbol of the United States of America, although apparently Franklin wasn't really serious. Thank goodness. Now pass the gravy, the creamed onions, the oyster stuffing and a nice slice of that pumpkin pie!

New STAR TREK TRAILER!
Saturday, November 15, 2008
This is a brief reminder to everyone of Comix Connection's Subscription Box policies. As you are probably aware, if you buy comic books on a regular basis and want to be certain that you don't miss any of your favorite titles, we PULL them when they come in on delivery days and HOLD them for you until you come in and pick them up! There is NO CHARGE for the service and we pull our subscriber's orders BEFORE we put the new books on the shelves... this ensures that the subscriber's orders are filled first.
Just a couple of points:
1) We ask that the comic books you requested to have held for you be picked up at least ONCE EVERY FIVE WEEKS. If you do not pick your comics up in a timely manner, we will attempt to call you to see when you are planning on picking them up. If you do not appear within SIX WEEKS, we may put your box on hold or cancel your subscription box and put any comics that we held for you back on the racks for general sale. Subscription boxes will be reinstated on a case-by-case basis. YOU NEED TO KEEP YOUR PHONE NUMBER CURRENT with us! Please check with the Staff to see if all your information is up-to-date!
2) Additionally, anything "Special Ordered" through the PREVIEWS catalog (T-shirts, toys, graphic novels, statues, etc.) will also be held for you when it arrives - you will be notified of its arrival by a NOTE in your Subscription Box. These "Special Orders" also need to be picked up WITHIN FIVE WEEKS of their arrival. If they are not picked up in a timely manner, they may be returned to the racks for anyone to purchase, and you will lose your ability to place Special Orders with Comix Connection without a deposit.
Again, this is just a reminder to all subscribers. Thanks for your business, and we will continue to do our best to serve all of you!
--Bill, Ned, Joe, Jared and the Comix Connection Counter Monkeys!

X-Rays from... Scotch Tape?
Yes, X-Rays from Scotch Tape:
Although that may be the lamest power EVER for a superhero, I guess all the Comix Connection Counter Monkeys (who have taped a LOT of comics let me tell you) have the ability to produce X-Rays... if only they would use their power for good...

Halloween Sale Recap Comix Connection - York!
Huck Finn/Tom Sawyer and Spider-boy came by to claim some free bees, and to scare off any riff raff. Huck/Tom was happy because it didn't involve any whitewashing.
Everything was good and we had our usual morning sales rush. So one of the cops from Chips, Rorschach, a Skrull invader and an average man decided to do a celebratory dance!
Ned embraced change after seeing how much he and the Skrull both loved the Village People dance.
But oh no...a fight broke out!
With election day so close tensions were high.
And then out of nowhere a Mexican wrestler!
Then Spider-Baby showed up and reminded us that we are the adults and we need to be good examples for the impressionable youngsters out there...because with great comic sales comes great retail responsibility!
And to show you that Comix Connections sales bring people happiness and bring people together Wolverine and Rorschach took a photo together.
Thanks again to everyone who came out!
