DC: The New 52 Midnight Release Party & DC Comics Sale
Tuesday, August 30th 11pm-1am
@ The Beguiling, 601 Markham Street
Featuring Flashpoint #5 and Justice League of America #1


This September DC Comics will be relaunching their entire universe from the ground up, with 52 brand new first issues being released over the course of the month. But the fun starts the week before, on August 31st, with the release of the very last comic in the ‘old’ DC Universe, Flashpoint #5, and the very first comic of the new DCU, Justice League of America #1.

The Beguiling will be doing a special 12:01am release of these historic two comic books on Wednesday August 31st, the moment we are allowed to sell them! But why not come by a little early (say… 11ish?) and take part in our DC Comics sale! We’ll be offering 30% off of the regular price (generally U.S. Cover Price) of all in-print DCU comic books, graphic novels, and trade paperbacks. We’ll also be offering spot sales on various other books (and you gotta show up in person to see what those are!). It’ll be a fun little DC Comics party for those that would like to attend, and please let us know if that’s you!

The Fine Print:
– We are only allowed to sell Flashpoint #5 and Justice League of America #1 at midnight. . Every other ‘new’ comic, you gotta wait until 11am on Wednesday when the store opens.
– The sale will ONLY last from 11pm until 1am, so don’t miss out!
– Items put on hold prior to the sale will NOT be available for sale pricing.
– It’s also the last day to sign up for our DC 52 FOR ONE LOW PRICE deal! Read on for details…
