Facsimile comics

 Both Marvel and DC are reprinting a number of their classic comics, such as the first issue of a notable comic or the first apearance of a character, though why Marvel decided the first appearance of the Puma, a second tier Spider Man foe, deserves a reprint is beyond me. Currnetly, both companies are reprinting their first maxi-series:  DC's Crisis on Infinite Earths and Marvel its Secret Wars. One thing I have noticed is that Marvel reprints their books on the slick coated paper used by today's books while DC is using the news print on which comics were commonly printed during that era.

Kevin Boerwinkle

 We do not get a lot of game authors or designers in the store, so it is a real treat when one stops by. Kevin Boerwinkle wrote a number of sourcebooks and adventures for 7th Sea and Swashbuckling Adventures back in the early 00s. He was on a roadtrip from the southeastern US to Overland Park KS and his route and Google brought him close enough to the store that he stopped off for a bit and even found one of his books in the used games section.

Vecna Eve of Ruin.

 Vecna Eve of Ruin goes on sale tomorrow. If you pre-ordered a copy, we have it on hold for you, otherwise stop by and pick one up.

40K Trades

 We are not taking trades on Warhammer 40K, Age of Sigmar or Fantasy Battle earlier than the current edition as there is little edition by players in older edition products. Nor will will take figures out of the box. We will gladly purchase or offer store credit for figures still in shrinkwrapped boxes or open boxes as long as they are still on the sprue. Unfortunately, we have had very little interest in loose figures and no good way to store them as bitz.
