The title of this week's newsletter wasn't lying-- BATMAN DAY is next Saturday, September 15th! What's going to happen on Batman Day, you ask? Well-- DC has printed up some recent DC Bat-books that we'll be GIVING AWAY for the day! Additionally, anything that has anything to do with the Caped Crusader at the shop will be 25% off! And we're planning to be pretty liberal in our assessment of what has to do with Batman...
The RICHMOND ZINE FEST is approaching, and we just caught wind of the schedule! It'll be at the Main Branch of the Richmond Library on Friday October 12th & Saturday October 13th. Friday is a day of workshops and panels, and it looks like our pal Dash Shaw will be giving a talk on Comics & Storytelling! He knows his stuff, so if you can make it I'd recommend it.
And finally, we are accepting donations on behalf of Barack Obama Elementary School for the next week or so. Looks like the kids need pencils, colored pencils, crayons, glue sticks, scissors... typical school fair like that. If you'd like to drop something in there, come on by!
LAST CALL! Here are the books debuting in a few weeks that we need to know if you'd like! Our orders lock on them Monday, so don't be shy-- speak up and get them added to your sub lists! And if you don't have a sub box and are interested in finding out more, reply to this email and we'll get you all the info you need.

SHATTERSTAR (Marvel, 5-part mini, $3.99) I guess after Deadpool 2 people were clamoring for more?
SUPERIOR OCTOPUS (Marvel, oNE-SHOT, $4.99) He's back! I gotta say, the Superior Spider-Man run is one of my favorite Spidey stories of all time. Happy to explore this stuff more.

X-MEN BLACK: MAGNETO (Marvel, One-shot, $4.99) ...aaaand here's the other one. 5 weekly one-shots featuring X-Men baddies. It's fitting Magneto's up first, he's the oldest.
SPARROWHAWK (Boom!, Ongoing?, $3.99) A young woman gets pulled into saving her world from an evil faerie queen, and by the looks of it she'll be bloodying her fists in the process.
LONE RANGER (Dynamite, Ongoing?, $3.99) From the writer of FLINTSTONES, EXIT STAGE LEFT: THE SNAGGLEPUSS CHRONICLES, and JUDGE DREDD: UNDER SIEGE! He's amazing so I'll be checking this out!
RAINBOW BRITE (Dynamite, Ongoing?, $3.99) I have no idea what the interest level will be for this one, so I really need to hear from you if you want it. Thanks!
ALBERT EINSTEIN: TIME MASON (Action Lab, mini, $3.99) Good score on the Dave Johnson cover, Action Lab. This looks like my kind of weird.
