SALE PRICING EXPLANATION
If you’ve been by the store this year, you’ll know that this has been a banner year for us in picking up great collections, including a ton of strong silver age books. Sales on our older comics are bizarrely stronger than ever before. Also, following last year’s BoxingDay Sale, we did an overhaul of all of our behind-the-counter books and marked down everything that remained by 20 to 50%, so prices are already lower than last year’sBoxing Day. With that in mind, here’s how the sale is breaking down:
BEHIND-THE-COUNTER BOOKS (WALL BOOKS)
This year we’ll be breaking down the discount based on the original printed cover price. We’re doing it this way because there is so much fresh material in the bins—some has been there for less than a month.
Cover Price: Discount
10 cent comics: 10% off sticker price
12 & 15 cent comics: 20% off sticker price
20 cent comics and up: 30% off sticker price
In addition, all Dell/Gold Key behind the counter will be 30% off regardless of cover price, and all Will Eisner’s The Spirit newspaper sections will be 30% off as well.
BACK ISSUE BINS & MAGAZINE BINS
50% off Comics & Magazines $15 and under.
30% off Comics & Magazines $15.01 and over.
Most back issues in the back issue bins ($15 and under) will be 50% off their stickered price, but there are a few bin-books that will be only 30% off. This discount also applies to magazine overstock bins, and recent and older Twomorrows Magazines.
50% off printed English-language smut in the back issue bins.
That’s right, all of our comics smut from the fine folks at Comic AG, Eros, Radio Comix, Class Comics, Etc.? All of it is 50% off the sticker price! Must be 18 or older to purchase.
25% off sticker price.
The only real exemption in the back-issue bins are Undergrounds, and they’ll be going for 25% off, which is still a great deal…!
– All Variants stickered at $39.99 or lower are now $5.00
– All Variants stickered at $40 or more are now 30% off
No variants released in December 2011 or later will be eligible.
– 25% off of the already intensely marked-down sticker price!
50 CENT BIN SALE:
“50 Cent Bin Comics” are now 25 cents each, with the purchase of 50 comics or more. That’s 50 comics for $12.50, a great deal! In addition, we’ll be cycling the 50 cent been stock several times throughout the sale.
Comic Sets are now 20% off the sticker price.
See you Thursday!
