We Have a New National Hero – Wednesday, June 29th, 2022

We Have a New National Hero – Wednesday, June 29th, 2022

Cassidy Hutchinson will go down in history as a hero of our time. She has bravely sworn to tell the truth under penalty of perjury and is now the target of 10’s of thousands of rabid maniacs who have guns, malice, and blind fealty to a disgraced former president who wants to be king and implies they should do his dirty work. That’s IF there is real public education in the future where they teach real history. That future is at grave risk in the November Election, btw.

The relationship  between Tony Stark ande Patsy Walker takes center stage in IronCat #1 and the Iron Man Hellcat Annual #1 today. Star Wars is flooding the racks with 4 titles, and in the ultimate Meta reference, they have a new title called Variants. And issue number one, you will surprised to hear, has variant covers, so now people can ask “Do you have Variant variants?” and not be crazy. That’s enough.

July 4th is 4 days away. Bob will not be having any special sale or promotion, but will be open every day with regular hours. Livermore is having fireworks Monday night, so streets will start getting blocked around 5 pm and so you might want to park, shop and move your car before then. Official closing will be at 6pm, but Bob tends to hang around and take his time. Be safe.

We are still encouraging and welcoming masks, but not requiring them. 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. If you want to know about the next sale or store event, or whether or not WE ARE EVEN OPEN click here. Sign in here to get an email reminder for ALL sales and other events. 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.

Warriors Win NBA Championship 50% of the Time – Wednesday, June 22nd, 2022

Warriors Win NBA Championship 50% of the Time – Wednesday, June 22nd, 2022

Twelve years ago, the Giants began a dynasty and  won three even-year World Series in 5 years, so adding one odd one either side, they won half the championships over 6 years. Six months after the third  one, the  Golden State warriors started their new dynasty and have won half the championships over the 8 seasons. There is no compelling reason to bet against them having a great season next year! I miss hoops already. Going to miss Kevon next year.

A big comic week for once. Lots more pops, and the Manga shelves are slowly filling in the back number holes.

The Jan 6 Committee True Crime Drama of the last 2 weeks was a masterpiece of detective work and storytelling. No matter which way you lean, all American citizens need to watch all of these hearings.

Alameda County has reestablished an indoor mask mandate, until further notice. 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.

Pride & Prejudice, War & not so much Peace – Wednesday, June 15th, 2022

Pride & Prejudice, War & not so much Peace – Wednesday, June 15th, 2022

It’s Pride Month, we still have discrimination, Russia is still killing in  Ukraine, and we have threats of civil war at home.

Meanwhile, last week’s DC’s showed up Friday, and are on the top row of the new comic wall, followed by this week’s. Diamond had one of the most accurate packing jobs I have seen in months, so almost everything we ordered for this week showed up on time! Warriors play tonight at 6 for NBA Champs #4 in 8 years. Exciting day! But no lack of drama….

The Jan 6 Committee True Crime Drama last week was a masterpiece of storytelling. It’s amazing how gripping the Truth can be when you tell about a cabal of criminals led by a crime boss to effect a Coup d’etat of the pillar of democracy in the most powerful country in the history of the world. It had everything: scumbags, plots, back-stabbing, lies, shills, con-men and marks, violence, cowards covering their tracks, enablers who found their conscience, and lots of bona fide heroes. If we hadn’t seen it on TV with our own eyes over the last 20 months, we would think it was too far-fetched to be believed. No matter which way you lean, all American citizens need to watch all of these hearings.

Marvel and DC were even smaller than last week, and everybody else was pretty small, too. I have no comment or recommendation.

Alameda County has reestablished an indoor mask mandate, until further notice. 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. If you want to know about the next sale or store event, or whether or not WE ARE EVEN OPEN click here. Sign in here to get an email reminder for ALL sales and other events. 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.

Pictures and list are from this week only. For last week’s DC’s and pictures, just scroll way down to find June 8th.

Watch Testimony on the Insurrection Thursday Night – Wednesday, June 8th, 2022

Watch Testimony on the Insurrection Thursday Night – Wednesday, June 8th, 2022

Our entire DC shipment is lost in the Midwest, along with 2 by other pubs. Latest info is arriving Friday. Sometimes, you just can’t catch a break.

As I write this on Thursday, June 9 around 9am, the most important event in 50 years of American History will be revealed on most of the news and entertainment networks tonight. Fox will not carry the Jan 6 Testimony because they are not news, they spew propaganda, and the truth about Jan 6 does not help promote their political fiction. No matter which way you lean, all American citizens need to watch at least this first night of hearings. (I think that will sell you on wanting to see more. What’s more dramatic than an attempted coup?) Find someone from the other side, if you want to make it interesting.

Go Warriors.

Marvel and DC were even smaller than last week, and everybody else was pretty small, too. Pics interspersed. I’ve got a really sore back and don’t have the energy for anymore.

Alameda County has reestablished an indoor mask mandate, until further notice. 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.

Another Massacre – Every Day – Wednesday, June 1st, 2022

Another Massacre – Every Day – Wednesday, June 1st, 2022

As I write this on Thursday, June 2 around noon, there have been 46 gun deaths this month.  A day and a half. 36 hours. Thoughts and prayers. That’s low. The 2021 average would have been more like 80. The guy in Tulsa had back pain, blamed his surgeon, decided to buy an automatic rifle, went to the hospital, shot his surgeon, another doctor, a receptionist, another patient, then himself. What do you think a 3-day waiting period might have done for him and his victims?

America! We’re number one! True, in at least one statistic.

Go Warriors.

Marvel and DC were even smaller than last week, and everybody else was pretty small, too. Pics interspersed. I’ve got a really sore back and don’t have the energy for anymore.

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. If you want to know about the next sale or store event, or whether or not WE ARE EVEN OPEN click here. Sign in here to get an email reminder for ALL sales and other events. 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.
