Avengers Day, May 19th!
Avenger's Day is Wednesday, May 19th at all four Amazing Fantasy locations: Frankfort, Lockport, Tinely Park, and Calumet City.
What is Avenger's Day? Excellent question! This is a nationwide event held at all comic stores that choose to participate, so of course we want to be part of the festivities! This event is in honor of the relaunch of all the Avengers titles.
We are still working out all the details, but I wanted to give everyone enough notice so you can mark it on your calendars NOW.
The officially sanctioned AVENGERS DAY PARTY is sure to be the must attend event of May (wait that's Free Comic Book Day), um I mean, the must attend event of Summer (wait that's our annual Sidewalk Sale coming up in June), er....it's the MUST attend event of Late May, yeah that's it! Be sure to stop by your local A/F for Avengers fun.
There will be a raffle at each location for the special Avengers Party Exclusive Avengers #1 Romita Jr. Gatefold Variant.
You can purchase your copy of Avengers #1 that day of course, along with one of the Avengers #1 I Am an Avenger Blank Variant if you so choose. Blank Variants are pretty cool, especially if you enjoy going to comic conventions. You can bring one of the Blank Variants to any artist at a con for him/her to customize for you. Of course said artist will most likely charge you for the sketch, but it's almost always worth the money. Limited copies of the Blank Variant will be available that day, so arrive early to avoid disappointment.
Special Limited Edition Avengers #1 Romita Jr. Prints will be available on a first come basis.
I believe they will be FREE with your purchase of Avengers #1. (These are strictly limited so again, arrive early to avoid disappointment). Details are still being finalized on this item.
There will most likely be some kind of Marvel or Avengers related sale/promotion too. Details to follow in the next few weeks.
I'll keep everyone posted on how this Marvelous Avengers Event shapes up. Again, more details as they become available.
There might even be a cake to celebrate Avengers Day, anything is possible!
