Cautiously Optimistic – Wednesday, March 30th, 2022

Cautiously Optimistic – Wednesday, March 30th, 2022

Further notice has arrived. Bob has removed the mask requirement. Cautiously. It’s still out there, with a new wave picking up steam. Remember, you are only in our enclosed space for minutes, but Bob is there all day. We still need to be careful, people.

I am going to talk to the one person reading this. We have put a TON of effort into clearing out the aisles and getting things in order, especially the books and Pops. Please tell Bob you appreciate how the store looks and feels. And help us keep them in order.

Comics! Another smallish week, because it’s the fifth Wednesday of the month. I’m late and in a hurry, so that’s all.

If you are a regular weekly new comic buyer, you will find we tweaked the arrangement on the shelves again. All the Marvels are still on the left wall, as they have been for months now, but the DCs are all together on the right, and then the Not Marvels and Not DCs start on the second comic shelf and continue down the wall. There was a good reason at the time, and Bob says he likes it, so it will probably stay that way, unless we get a bunch of complaints.

Thanks to League Of Comic Geeks for this week’s images, which are in some unusual, non-alphabetical order, and 8 across. So it’s a somewhat random sample. I’ll keep searching. Use the list, and MAYBE the pictures will be useful.

Wednesday is Normally New Comic Day, no matter what you read on the internets. Watch this space and our Facebook page for the latest news about the rest of the month, season, year, millenium, etc. (And text messages from 5-Star.) The complete list is found below.

Also, you can go to     fb.fantasybooksandgames.com and you’ll be taken to our Facebook page. We also use our in-store 5-Star Rewards system to text similar announcements to your phone.
