Updates & Quick Hits

ITEM, OBAMA-MANIA: The craziness continues with the Amazing Spider-Man issue featuring President Obama. Flying Colors will be receiving more copies of this comic book each of the next two Wednesdays--- on January 28 and February 4.

We are still taking reservations in person in Flying Colors' store only--- for this fun issue. Don't miss your chance to grab a piece of political and super-hero history! You did know that Prez Obama is a Spider-Man fan and a confessed comic book reader, didn't you?

ITEM, CUTE: Now in-stock at Flying Colors--- Exclusive and Limited Edition Infant T-Shirts designed by cartoonist JB Bonivert. Sweet!

ITEM, COOL: Talk about an "exclusive"! Check out the customized Captain Four-Color action figure shown here. It's the terrific work of FlyCo Retailing Brigade member Andy! In the pic along with Andy is the designer of Captain Four-Color (and the designer of the infant t-shirts above) JB Bonivert!

If you're still in the dark about who Captain Four-Color is, FlyCoJoe suggests you check out the web-comics link HERE, or better yet, pick up a copy of Flying Colors 20th Anniversary Special Edition comic book.

From the comments we've received to date, we realize this action-figure version of Captain Four-Color may be something of a stretch from the "real" Cap FC.

As we've heard, the real Cap FC isn't quite so muscular (Yet! C'mon, there's still time!), and he's not smiling (Cap FC is always smiling, but you'd probably have the same expression if you were being hoisted like that!)

ITEM, ONE MORE THING: Flying Colors still has a quantity of our 2009 poster/calendars ready and waiting for you. We are also happy to give a quantity of these poster/calendars to teachers and librarians, so please inquire within!

ITEM, SWEET! FlyCoJoe received another wonderful visit from one of the former FLying Colors Retailing Brigade members who helped to build the FlyCo empire into what it is today.

Here's a pic from my visit earlier this week with Anne Goodrich, her lovely mom and Anne's three beautiful kids. Anne was on staff here from Day One--- October 3, 1988, when she was a student at Carondelet High School. Anne is now a school teacher in Mountain Home CA. Great to see you, Anne (and fam!). Please stop by whenever you're in the area.

And if there's any of the other 45 or so former FlyCo staffers who'd like to stop by, I'd love to see you all, so don't be strangers.

Peace 'n' Good People!
