New Collections Arrives including Spider-man, New Mutants, Deadpool, and more...
As I mentioned on Saturday, I was commanded by Nicole the Great, Queen Mother of the Americas,
to attend this weekend's Coronation of the new Monarchs of the
San Francisco Imperial Court.
As it turns out, the Coronation ceremony (while quite nice...) was secondary to my participating
in an annual Sunday morning pilgrimage to the grave of
the founder of the
Imperial Court System.
At Jose's grave site Nicole awarded me the honor of being an Heir Apparent, which elevates me to
being a member of the 40-person International Court Council, and also puts me in her personal line
Jose' Sarria Headstone
To give you a bit of perspective, the
Imperial Court System
has been active for 52 years. It currently has 70 active chapters in the United States, Canada,
and Mexico, with approximately 30,000 followers. During that span of more than half a century, very
few non-Monarchs have ever been elevated to Heir Apparent, and even fewer who identify as straight
allies. I am humbled beyond words to have been chosen by our Queen Mother for this amazing honor.

I will have more information and photos about my elevation to Heir Apparent in my next newsletter,
but before I leave this topic today I did want to quickly mention that there will be a 3-part ABC
miniseries that begins this evening entitled:
"When We Rise...,"
which will include segments about
and his efforts to organize resistance against the vicious oppression of the Drag Queen performers
of the LGBTQ community in San Francisco during the 1960's. I am very much looking forward to
watching this series.

Moving on to comics news, Will Moulton and Pam both came in to work on Saturday, and they added even
more hard-to-find issues for you into our online
comics and magazine
for last week to see the huge numbers of comics that we have been adding for you. So you know, one
factor that we have seen as a consistent trend over the past few months is that many titles and
issues from the last ten years (that some comics dealers treat with remarkable disdain) are actually
quite scarce in the secondary market due to very low print runs. "Common" issues are oftentimes not. Just saying...
I will close today's newsletter with a quick mention that our 30% Off GREATDEAL! codeword sale is
still in effect for you on all of our
back issue comics and magazines,
including those just listed in
Only new issues, a few variants, and our CGC's are excluded.
