Comic-con season in NYC!

This week:
At Big Apple Con you can Meet Adam West AND Burt Ward, three Brady Brothers, Mark Millar, and take a class in digital art with Greg Horn. But tops on your list: meet the most infamous personality at the con, the one, the only, Midtown Back Issue Man ALEX RAE! Alex will sign autographs, pose for photos, wax philosophically, and BUY AND SELL COMICS, GRAPHIC NOVELS AND COLLECTIBLES. Got stuff to sell? Run your list by Alex in advance. We’re buying everything, and paying top dollar for Golden and Silver Age. Friday, October 1st – Sunday, October 3rd.

Next week:
NYCC: The mother of all comic-cons (take that, San Diego) rolls into NYC! Meet Blair Butler, Todd McFarlane, Garth Ennis, Andy Diggle, and enter to win the ONLY advance copy of Paul Levitz’s massive new hardcover book DC: 75 Years of Mythmaking, and that’s only at Midtown’s booth! We’ll take you on a roller-coaster ride of non-stop creator signings! We’ll be unveiling our new Marvel NYCC variant cover of Uncanny X-Force #1 by J. Scott Campbell and our exclusive Captain America t-shirt from Mad Engine this week in-store and online, and co-unveil (is that a word?) the new line of Atlas Comics at the con. We hate to brag, but we’re also the exclusive dealer at the con for New Era, and we’ll have a full line of their superhero baseball caps. We’ll announce other goodies shortly!
