MEDICAL UPDATE: 06/04/2010

Another week! Sometimes I wish time would go by at Marvel Universe speed!

The backroom slowly begins to empty as I dig through boxes of collections that have piled up. The last several days have been spent pricing comics and filing them into our back issue inventory. Dio and Kim-Mei are very excited to be able to walk into the backroom and turn on the open sign, instead of climbing over a mountain of boxes.

Last week we held our first Rhymefest: Independent Thinkers Album Listening Party. Pictures to come soon! We hope to do more in the future, so more people can participate. Watch here for more announcements.

JUNE 14th, we start opening on Mondays for the summer. Lieutenant Dio has committed to working on Mondays 11:00 to 7:00! So look for us to be here 7 days a week. WooHoo!

AREA 309 Visits First Aid Comics:
Most importantly check out Area309’s story on First Aid Comics! Thanks Kevin! And his site too: area309.com.

SATURDAY
June 5th YuGiOh Tournament!
Our second meeting of YuGiOh! Thomas Matthews will be here running the games on Saturdays: 12:30 – 3:00. To start we will be unofficial, but hope to add official KONAMI prize support quickly.

As always, I appreciate your business and support.

The Comic Guy,
