Our copyeditor Hal has some words to share about the passing of our friend Perry Moore:
Midtown mourns the passing of a dear friend Perry Moore, who died last Thursday. Perry is best known for producing the Narnia movies, a labor of love for him, but he would probably want to be remembered as the author of the wonderful young-adult superhero novel Hero. We remember him as a warm, generous, and fun-loving Wednesday regular. His favorite character (“Don’t snicker,” he’d say) was Colossal Boy. We’ll miss him.
-Hal Johnson, Midtown Comics

Dwayne McDuffie will be missed.
Beloved comic book, film writer and film producer Dwayne McDuffie passed away this Tuesday. Dwayne was best known for writing the Justice League Unlimited animated series and creating the series Static Shock, and was one of the most prominent voices for diversity in comics. Dwayne wrote the script for the well-received animated film All-Star Superman, and it was great to have the opportunity to interview him at the film’s premiere. Our condolences go out to Dwayne’s friends and family. You can find the beat’s coverage here.

-Thor Parker, Midtown Comics

Believe it,
Thor and Gerry G., aka G-Man

CGC Don Winslow of the Navy!
It’s convention season! We were at the New York Comic Buyers Market Place this past weekend and it was great! We had a special codeword for our twitter and facebook followers and they got 50% off our entire booth! It was a blast, but I never forget about our awesome back issue section on our website. This week in our giant upload we added great runs of DC’s 80-Page Giant, Iron Man, 52, 100 Bullets, 30 Days of Night, Superman Batman, Avengers, Flash, Firestorm, Deadman, Deadpool, Teen Titans Vol. 3, Fantastic Four Vol. 3, Strangers In Paradise, Usagi Yojimbo, Concrete and Morbius. We love comics! I can’t add great stuff without buying great stuff, so if you have some doubles you need to get rid of, don’t forget I am always buying comics!

This just in! Our website got in an amazing run of CGC Don Winslow of the Navy. These are golden age books, and are among the highest graded Don Winslow books in existence. Don Winslow was an early Fawcett published book (you know, the people who invented Captain Marvel! SHAZAM!) and these copies are part of the rare Crowley Pedigree and some are even file copies!

All three of our locations got new CGC books. Check out our Times Square, Grand Central, and our new Downtown store to see what they’ve got. Our Times Square store also got in nice runs of Ms. Marvel, Incredible Hulk, Aquaman, Spider-Man, Peter Parker the Spectacular Spider-Man, Star Wars, Marvel Premier and various Venom minis. Yay comics!

We buy comics, graphic novels and collectibles! If you’ve got books you want to sell, e-mail me!

Stay mint,
Alex Rae!
