Picks & Grins

Another week, another bunch of great suggestions for cool summer reading.

I'm in full prep mode for the monster of all comic conventions--- Comic-Con International: San Diego is next week--- and I'll be there scouting our more New & Cool stuff for FLYING COLORS' Faithful, as well as doing a bunch of behind-the-scenes business.

In my role as president of the retailer trade organization ComicsPRO, my Friday at Comic-Con will be spent here. I know a number of Bay Area comic and pop culture fans head to San Diego for this huge event---so if you see me there, make sure to stop and say hello!
As for the grins, here are FlyCo staffers Jazmine and Melissa enjoying another tough day on the job!

Peace 'n' Smiles!

Limited Sale Items!

Just a couple of quick notes as we head into Wednesday's NEW RELEASES' DAY---
From the pix here, I wantt o alert you to the fact that FLYING COLORS has some very special prices on select in-stock items right now, including Series 17 McFarlane National Hockey League action figures.

The deal here is that I blew it when I ordered these. Plain and simple. So my goof is your gain. Instead of the regular price of $13-$15 each, these hockey figures are $6.99 each. And the more you buy, the cheaper they get---buy foru or more and get them for only $2.99 each! Way below cost!

We've also marked down, for a limited time and only on these in-stock items, a selection of statues and busts, including the ones you see here--- with sale prics that are well below original wholesale cost. Grab these deals while you can!
Finally for today, a tip of the FlyCo fedora to Mike Fantastic for the work he does in preparing our Weekly Staff Picks board. He carefully reproduces the logo lettering for each of the staff picks---and it's this Weekly Staff Picks board that becomes a starter for lots of comic talk here in the store.

Be here for the buzz of New & Cool tomorrow on NEW RELEASES DAY!

Just a quick reminder that our NEW RELEASES' Day this week will be on Thursday July 10, a one-day delay due to last Friday's 4th of July holiday.

We are open 11AM-7PM through Saturday this week, but with new comics & other cool stuff hitting the racks, we will stay open an extra hour until 8PM on Thursday.

Lots of good stuff is being released this week, including the Skrull-laden SECRET INVASION #4.

Peace 'n' Comics!
