Splash Brothers Are Back, as a Trio – Wednesday, April 20th, 2022

Splash Brothers Are Back, as a Trio – Wednesday, April 20th, 2022

With Klay and Steph back, the Jordan Poole show has changed its name back. The TV commentators are struggling to describe the offensive power of the current Warriors playoff lineup. But there is so much talent around the NBA, that luck (avoiding injuries) is going to determine who wins more than anything else. Cross your fingers. I want to enjoy a long run into June.

Well, it’s time to ignore the war, watch the NBA and get ready for Free Comic Book Day.  In 16 days, the Warriors will be in the second round, and people will be lining up to get FREE comics (from a limited selection) on the biggest day of the year in fandom.  We’ll try to make it as “normal” as possible. Be ready to wait outside longer than usual. We are not going to have 100 people at a time in the store for 8 hours. YOU should hope we don’t allow that.

The list of official FCBD comics will be posted here by tomorrow, Friday, Earth Day, April 22, 2022. And as it used to be, Bob will sweeten the pot for anyone who chooses to actually spend money, instead of grabbing the freebies and running, by matching your paid receipt with a same-dollar value from another big pile of books out on the sidewalk. FREE BOOK DAY! Get ready to FREEP out on May 7th, right here in Livermore.

Back to the present, we got some comics, some books, and some toys and Pops yesterday. That’s enough. List below.

BTW. The Russian ship did sink.

Further notice has arrived on one front, anyway. Bob has removed the mask requirement. Cautiously. It’s still out there, with a new variant being created somewhere. 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.

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.
