Howdy!

Life continues to be frenetic here at Mile High Comics. The rush of online orders that I mentioned that we were receiving on Wednesday has not abated, and we're seeing an amazing number of new customers coming into our Jason St. Mega-Store. To quantify that statement a bit, our sales at Jason are running at 180% of last year, through the first sixteen days of this month. That is remarkable growth, by any standard...

As regards why our online sales are increasing at such a fast pace, I attribute it to a combination of factors, with our having slashed so many of our back issue comics prices in half in late February being the number one consideration. As word of our across-the board price decreases has spread throughout the comics world, we are seeing experiencing unprecedented growth in our online sales, both via our website, and also through eBay. Many of these new orders are clearly from fans who have never purchased from us before, as they are not taking advantage of our ongoing 50% off SWEETHEART codeword discount.

Another reason why our sales are increasing right now has to be attributed to the huge surge in interest in comics reading resulting from the recent success of the CAPTAIN AMERICA movie. With so many references to different Marvel heroes and villains in that one film, we are seeing growth in sales in titles featuring what used to be relatively obscure Marvel Comics characters. I would be hard-pressed to think of even a single back issue Marvel comic that has not benefitted from the CAPTAIN AMERICA movie.

Finally, the main factor that we believe has our sales jumping at Jason St. is the fact that we have been adding 1,000 - 2,000 back issues a day into our back issue bins from those very large private collections that I purchased on the East Coast during late March. Some of the comics in those collections were relatively mundane, but there were also many titles and issue numbers where we previously had not a single copy in stock. With our entire Jason St. inventory team now focused on beefing up our comics selection, we are making huge progress toward creating the single most comprehensive in-store back issue comics inventory in the entire world. Actually, if the great feedback that we have been receiving from our out-of-state visitors is any indication, we have already met that lofty goal...

All of the above having been said, my 44 years of experience in retailing comics has taught me that there are many ebbs and flows. Just because our sales are great today, there is no predicting how they might be tomorrow. As a result, I will keep our extremely low comics prices in effect for you indefinitely, and also keep our 50% off SWEETHEART codeword running for another week. Please do enjoy this period of exceptionally low comics prices, with my personal thanks for your support of Mile High Comics

Before I go, I have two other topics to cover. First, I am seeking to buy entire collections of comics, books, and toys for additional expansion of our Jason St. stock. I will be buying in Michigan during the first week of May, and then traveling to the upper East Coast during the period from May 19th - May 31st. If you know of anyone living in those regions who might have a larger collection for sale, please have them write to our head buyer, Pam Brandle, at pamb@milehighcomics.com, or have them give her a call at 303-455-2659 (weekdays 9-5). Pam has already set up three home visits for me, but I still have room in my schedule for several more...


Deadpool vs Carnage #1


Deadpool vs Carnage #2

Finally, our new comics buyer, Will Moulton, let me know yesterday that we just received a surprise reorder of DEADPOOL VS. CARNAGE #1. Coming in the same week as the second issue of the series arrived, that allows me the opportunity to offer you both issues for free as a bonus for placing any minimum $75 order with us over the weekend. Or, if you prefer, you can request just a free copy of DEADPOOL VS. CARNAGE #1 for a minimum $50 order, or a copy of DEADPOOL VS. CARNAGE #2 for free as a bonus for a $40 order. Let us know your preference in the "notes" section of our online order form...

Happy Collecting!
