It's been awhile since I have posted one of these, the last few months in The Hall have been...interesting
to say the least.
In no particular order -
A set of shelves collapsed on me back in October and it took me close to an hour to free myself. Ended up with some minor nerve damage and have been rehabbing since. Not quite back to 100% but I'm getting there. Ouch
Because of that -
I am undertaking a massive reorganization of my comic storage room to prevent an accident like that from happening again and also doing some Inventory maintenance at the same time. That is going to take some time and might affect the swiftness of shipping that you are used to. On the plus side, as per my store policy, any order that takes longer than a day to ship will include a free comic.
Another project that I have undertaken hasn't turned out as well as expected yet but we are still working on it. The Bijou Cafe has had a few events but progress has been slowed because we are waiting for the City of Richmond to approve the proper permits. The Bijou is an independent movie house that has been operating downtown on Broad Street for several months now. As soon as we are allowed, I will operate a mini food service business to complement the experience. The Bijou Cafe
Taking up a lot of my time lately has been the addition of two new kittens to my menagerie. Full story here: Chronicles of the Crazy Cat Man
Long story short - I crawled up under somebody's house and rescued two kittens. Planned on finding someone to adopt them and that someone turned out to be me.
Last but not least, I just got called back to act on the television show Turn: Washington's Spies
. I have appeared in all 3 seasons and now should be alright for season 4, the last one. Not taking it for granted yet, I have learned not to get my hopes up too much as I've been shot down before. It is a good sign that they have called me for Episode 1.
As far as my plans for CCL go, the goal is to add at least 2 long boxes a month to my inventory. The intention is to keep a good mix of the Big 2 and Independent , all of the different Ages (Gold/Silver/Bronze/Modern) and anything Hot that I come across. I don't mind adding Reader Copies at low prices and will continue to do that as well.
I'm also going to try to help keep the Forums alive! We can have a lot of fun there and I encourage you all to browse and comment. If you have a question or something that you think is interesting then start your own thread. It's easy. I don't run sales in my store but I do offer giveaways through Forum Posts sometimes so keep watching! and posting!

- I do my best to grade judiciously and impartially. If you have a disagreement with a grade I have assigned to a book then please contact me with your concern. I am not perfect.

If you are a Newsstand collector feel free to PM me and I will let you know if my copy for sale is newsstand or Direct.
I return Feedback when I receive it. My reasoning behind this is until I hear back from you I don't know if you have received your package and if you were happy with it or not. If you leave me a Rating and I don't reciprocate please remind me. I stay on top of it as much as I can so it's usually not a problem. If there is a problem that causes you to consider leaving non Hero feedback PLEASE contact me and allow me the chance to make things right.
I will provide scans upon request. If you want one be sure to send me your e-mail address and I will get it right out.
