New Year's Eve EVE!

Tomorrow, the last Wednesday of the DECADE, December 30th, go to your local Amazing Fantasy for fun and excitement! Each store will be doing something different, so if you are bored, take a trip to all four!

Here is the scoop for what is a happening at the Frankfort location:

FREE Marvel 2010 Calendars (quantities limited, arrive early to avoid disappointment)

Free Marvel Origins of Siege Comic (again, quantities limited)

Free Avengers ID cards (Marvel has not sent them to us yet, so if they do, we will have them available with the same disclaimer, quantities limited. Unless they show up tomorrow morning, it doesn't look like we will have these, sorry.)

Fall of the Hulks New Years Eve Eve Variant will be available for purchase (I bet you can guess that quantities are limited)

The only NEW book that day will be Green Lantern: Blackest Night #6, so that will be available for purchase. We plan on doing a live reading of Blackest Night #6 also, so that should be entertaining. Pick your favorite character!

There will be special sales and special pricing all day long!

FREE Champagne and wine for all of our customers over 21! And sparkling juice for the youngsters.

Cheese and crackers will also be available for snacking!

Karaoke all day long, and maybe Guitar Hero too, who knows!

Comic Book related trivia all day long!

Periodic raffles will be held throughout the day for 4 IPod shuffles, a couple of ITunes gift cards, Green Lantern Blackest Night variant covers and more!

Local horror author Shelia C. Johnson will be doing an in-store reading of a few of her stories from her collection: The People He Thought He Knew: Horror Stories from the Suburbs, including a special Christmas Horror short story. From 4pm-5pm. She will also be selling copies of her book for $10 if you would like to pick one up.

And last, but not least, there will be an assortment of FREE comics! (Limit of 3 free comics per customer, limited to a selection of comics. So, NO you can't just walk around the store and pick any three comics, they will be limited to what we have selected as possible freebies. So don't be a jackass and bring up the three newest issues of Green Lantern and say "these are Free right?")

I hope we see everyone there! Should be way too much fun for everyone! Come see Mike passed out behind the counter at the Frankfort store from drinking too much, come see your friends make fools of themselves as they sing for discounts, come on by and save money while you are entertained by your friendly neighborhood comic shop employees, and come by to get FREE stuff!

    I plan on attending but won't be there until about 5:30 PM so I hope the Origins Of Siege book and the Marvel calendar will still be available when I get there.

    Either way, it will be good to stop in and see people before the new year hits!

  2. I am limiting everyone to one copy per person on both of those items, so in theory there should be enough to last until you get there Tom!

  3. Wish I lived closer. You guys have too much fun.

    Just wanted to say thanks for having this event. It was a lot of fun, and a good way to help pass a mostly comic-less week:)
