30% off all Halloween costumes and accessories

This week I’m on a huge Thing kick. He’s better then the Hulk and he’s one of my favorite Marvel characters of all time. I mean come on; he’s the ever lovin’ blue eyed Thing, fer cryin’ out loud! At one point he was so popular that he had his own title, The Thing, and was in a bunch of other books, like Marvel Two-in-One, and the Fantastic Four. That‘s why in our super large upload of over 5,000 Thingtastic comics this week, I added all those great Thing books and about 500 Fantastic Four comics to the website! I also threw in a nice run of Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man mini’s to keep all of you web heads happy! We’ll round out this week’s update of large runs with Ka-Zar, Ka-Zar The Savage, and Robin. Check them out!

This Just in! Both our Times Square store and the Grand Central store got in some great runs of Legion of Super heroes and New Adventures of Superboy! Get into the store and grab ‘em before they’re gone!

Stay mint,

Alex Rae!
