Watching Jessica Nigri go from home town to world wide hero has been really cool! Plus we like that she likes us!! :)

Going through the Pop Culture paradise you tube videos if you can't tell! ;)
Sometimes we are passed up for awards that fall under Best Comic Book store.  A lot of the industry does not consider us a comic book store!  Among the reasons I have to believe it's because we choose to be more than that!  Who knows, maybe in the future there will be an award for best comics AND game store!  :)
Not changing the name to Pop Culture Paradise Comics anytime soon, cause we offer MORE THAN COMICS!!

Thank you for choosing us!!

Still one of our favorite videos!!

Thank you New Mutiny Media!!  

Looking for one more location!  Where to go? Well, three locations means comics is good!!  :)  Stay tuned.

Comics are on an all time high!
When you have a powerhouse like Disney at the helm, anything from an amazing movie starring the Avengers to this can happen:

In addition to an already announced radio advertising campaign (see “Marvel Announces Radio Ad Campaign”) Marvel Entertainment has announced a number of other gambits to raise the profile of its Marvel NOW launches, the latest of which will involve the appearance of the Marvel superheroes on America’s favorite quiz show Jeopardy during the installment of the long-running show that airs nationwide on Thursday, December 13th. 
According to information released by Marvel today, the December 13th iteration of Jeopardy will “feature a special category in which we’ll find out just how much the contestants know about Marvel NOW!’s most popular characters and their exciting new comic book series.”

For your Marvel and DC comics fix, Batman, Superman, Thor, Iron-man and Captain, you can get them all at one place..our place. :)

I-Pad's Play house trouble for Comic Books? I think not.

I'm going to call this blog, The I-Pad's Big Adventure!
Technology is an adventure that will continously fail, meaning that we will NEVER see the ultimate I-Pad or computer or game system because they will always be outdone! There has been several dozen inventions that have put the fear of "technological advancement" into comic retailers every time! For example Radio, TV, Personnal projectors, CD ROM, DVD, I-Pod and now the I-Pad! Even with all of these supposed "industry killers" comics are still around!

Why is that? Glad you asked...
Comics have had an adventure too, one that's lasted for thousands of years!
The comic media can be held close and are secure! Sure you can hold an I-Pad close to your heart, but when the upgrades are too costly or a new company makes a better gizmo where does that leave your incompatable collection of digital comics then? You guessed it, the digital graveyard.

Now let's take your comic collection that you've showered with Tender Love and Care. Maybe it was even passed down to you from your father, or mother, or brother or grandfather you get the pic, and you've got what I call a little TLC or a Tangible Longevity Collectible!
When was the last time your Dad came to you and said, "son, this here Radio has been in my family for 50 years! I want you to listen to your favorite comic book story on it..." or how about this, "daughter, I want you to take this here CD ROM that only plays on DOS and put it into your computer and read your favorite comics..."

Comic books are simply never going to go away. There will always be someone who conisders themselves an artist or writer and there will always be someone who wants to collect thier work without fear of losing it to the non stop digital upgrade change!

So retailers please keep your chin up and collectors keep your money away from the digital comic money pit!

Peace and chicken grease!
