30% Off Codeword Sale Ending
The 30% off NANETTE3 codeword sale that I put into effect for you on Wednesday accomplished exactly
what I was hoping. That additional 30% discount off of our already drastically lowered
back issue comics
prices has prompted an unprecedented surge in orders over the past 36 hours. I would like to
personally thank everyone who has placed an order with us during this NANETTE3 sale, as you have
done much to ease the mind of my wife, Nanette, about our company finances while she is in the
hospital. With her hip-replacement surgery now only four days away, anything that makes her feel
more at ease is very much appreciated.
If you have not yet taken advantage of the NANETTE3 codeword, you have only a limited time left in
which to do so. Because demand has been so strong, I will need to be ending this special 30% off
sale on Wednesday, at noon. Simply put, our shipping capacity is already committed through next
Thursday. That means that orders received today will ship at the end of next week at the earliest,
and orders received over the weekend will begin shipping during the week following. Please be
accepting of this delayed shipping if you place an order with us this weekend. While no one likes
shipping delays, I would think that receiving an extra 30% off would be excellent compensation
for waiting a bit longer for your order to arrive.
In other news, we just received Mike Deodato's awesome cover to our exclusive
Mile High Comics variant
STAR WARS (2015) #26.
If you do not already have a subscription set up to our
variants, I urge you to do so right away. Contact Mario in our
new comics subscription
department via firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
STAR WARS #26 Mile High Exclusive cover
So you know, we only print 3,000 copies of each of our
variants, and they tend to melt away quickly. That is why we never wholesale our variants to anyone,
and limit our clients to only three copies per issue. Advance ordering on our variants only costs
you $19.95 each, which is not bad at all when you consider that they are among the scarcest
comics ever released. We have quietly been publishing a
Mile High Comics variant edition
to every single
STAR WARS (2015) #1-#25,
which is the first time in history that this has ever been done by any third party with an ongoing
Marvel Comics series. FYI, our next five covers (#26-30) will all be Yoda & A Jedi Knight cover by Mike Deodato...
My final item for today is a plug for my good friend, Jim Shooter's, first new story in several years.
After a decade spent as Editor-In-Chief at Marvel Comics (1978-1987), Jim founded
and wrote stories for every publisher in the comics world. Jim has since been living a quiet life in
upstate New York, but the siren call of his many friends in the comics world has finally coaxed him back
into writing new comics stories.
BEDTIME STORIES FOR IMPRESSIONABLE CHILDREN #1
is in the current DIAMOND PREVIEWS (December) magazine, and can be ordered through Mario in our
or via your local retail comics shop. It will ship on February 22nd. Here is a synopsis of Jim Shooter's first issue:
Former Marvel Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter at American Mythology? You bet! The legendary comics writer behind
Secret Wars and Unity and fellow DEFIANT alum (and acclaimed storyboard and development artist) Joe James
(Dark Dominion, Knights on Broadway) join creator-writer J.C. Vaughn(Zombie-Proof, Vampire, PA), newcomer
writer-artist James Nelms, and cover artist Mark Wheatley (Breathtaker, Frankenstein Mobster) for a new take
on the classic horror anthology, Bedtime Stories For Impressionable Children. American Mythology's Year of Horror
begins right here!

P.S. We are now about halfway to our goal of being able to purchase 1,000 pairs of socks for homeless teens
and disabled elderly people forced to live on Denver's streets. If you would like to contribute to this goal,
$25 gift certificate
from us. We can either send you the certificate (free of shipping charges) or simply e-mail you a registration
number. You can then use 100% of that credit on your next order. In the meantime, I will contribute your entire
$25 towards the socks fund. You will also be entered one time into a drawing for a $1,000 gift certificate for each
that you purchase. I will give out that $1,000 at the end of December.
$25 gift certificate
Below is a photo of me helping Jim Scharper's
"Feeding Denver's Hungry"
organization distribute $2,500 in donated gift cards yesterday to the homeless in downtown Denver. We also gave
out 175 pairs of brand new gloves, which I purchased from gift certificate money that came in after our $4,320.00
Snow Ball donation check had already been written. Nighttime temperatures are supposed to drop into single digits
by Tuesday, so warm socks and gloves are a critical need for those sleeping outside. My sincere thanks go out to
those of you who have already helped.
Passing out gift cards to a huge crowd!
