UPDATE: Curbside Comic Service at Flying Colors

Want to Safely Get Comics and Other Cool Stuff 
During the Coronavirus Shutdown?

Please note: Curbside Comic Service pick up times are Wednesday from 11AM-3PM and Saturday from 11AM-3PM. To make sure we comply with social distancing,  we ask you to please set up your curbside pick ups as part of your "essential" errands.

It's easy as 1, 2, 3...
1) Make a list of the comics, graphic novels and other cool stuff you want to get!

2) Email coolstuff@flyingcolorscomics.com with your additions. Please include your phone number in your email.

3) Our Flying Colors Retailing Brigade will call you to let you know what we have for you, we might make suggestions based on what you like, we'll get payment for your order and then set a pick up time during our Curbside hours.

We have a wide selection of graphic novels, other new comics, comic supplies (bags and boards) and Other Cool Stuff. If you'd like to add that we have in stock, we'd be happy to add those to your order, too.

Hours for Curbside Comic Service will be Wednesday and Saturday from 11AM-3PM. If we receive enough orders, we'll add more hours
Thanks for your patience and please watch our social media channels for updates. Up to the minute info is always at our Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram (those channels reach far more people than this blog).

Please note: To comply with the social distancing mandates, we are NOT be allowing anyone into the shop!
Thank you, FlyCo Faithful!
You are the best comics fans in the world!

Ready to order for Flying Colors Curbside Comic Service!

Here's just a small sample of the cool stuff we have at Flying Colors.

No sports, you say! How about sports graphic novels?

Satchel Paige: Striking Out Jim Crow is not only sports, it's history! One of our fave graphic novels!

Graphic novels publisher First Second delivers lots of awesome entertainment. We're showing you just three of our RECOMMENDED First Second graphic novels!

 Zoom in to see all the Deadpool compilations we have in stock right now! 

Two very inspiring humans, Mister Rogers and Charles Schulz are featured in these books great for read-alongs with kids! 

DC Comics graphic novels for All Ages... that means kids 8 and up will love reading them. And if you're decades older than 8, you'll probably dig 'em, too

Marvel just recently celebrated its 80th anniversary with a series of compilation highlighting each decade. 

Zoom in to find your fave!

X marks the Marvel spot! Whether it's the new House of X/Powers of X hardcover compilation, the classic '90s Onslaught crossover or the ultra-kooky and fun X-Statix from artist Mike Allred, we recommend some mutant mania on your bookshelves!

With these photos, zoom in to see titles. Then email coolstuff@flyingcolorscomics.com with a list of what you’d like to order.

FlyCo Faithful: Now You Can Attain Angel Status!


Announcing FlyCoFaithful.com!

First... THANK YOU! There's no way Flying Colors Comics and Other Cool Stuff would still be here after nearly 32 years if it wasn't for your continued patronage of the shop and your enthusiasm for what we do at Flying Colors!

Everything at Flying Colors begins with our gratitude to you!

Thousands of current and former FlyCo Faithful stay in touch with us through social media on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter... and on our nearly 15 year-old blog right here at FlyingColorsComics.com.

Many have asked us if there's a way they can help support Flying Colors even though they can no longer visit the shop regularly. 
So for faraway FlyCo fans and our weekly FlyCo Faithful alike... we ask you to get ready to become a FlyCo Angel!

What is a FlyCo Angel?
First, it's not a GoFundMe or asking for a hand-out or any other plea for help. Flying Colors will be here for many more years (hopefully)... even with this unprecedented challenge of the Coronavirus shutdown. COVID is a challenge for ALL of us, not just small businesses owners and staff. 

Becoming a FlyCo Angel is a way for us to involve more of you in what we do best--- and that's to Bring Happiness Through Comics.

You're invited to become a FlyCo Angel once...and that's awesome! Or you can get new wings any time you're moved to participate and buy another package.

Whenever you become a FlyCo Angel, you'll receive a heart-felt THANK YOU... and who knows what else? Surprises are a cool thing, right?

If you prefer not to receive anything, please let us know at checkout and we will designate a portion of your FlyCo Angel package to donate comics and graphic novels to local schools.

We invite you to hit the link... and attain Angel status NOW!
Thank you! 😇

We Still Have Your Comics & Other Cool Stuff Right Here in Flying Colors!

Curbside Service is now available Wednesday and Saturday from 11AM-3PM or by Appointment Only, except for Sunday when no one will be in the shop.

We are hoping to continue receiving our shipments, but sadly even that is not guaranteed in these crazy days.

We do have lots of great stuff in stock, though, so shoot us an email at coolstuff@flyingcolorscomics.com and let us know the recent comics and graphic novels you're wanting to read during this shutdown!

RECOMMENDED: If you have comics on hold and want to wait until the shutdown is over to come get them, you can place a credit on your account to pay for your comics as they come in.

Thank you, FlyCo Faithful!

Thanks for your patience.
Please stay healthy, everyone!
Life is way too fragile!

Peace & Love from the Field Family and Your FlyCo Retailing Brigade

Flying Colors Curbside Service!

Announcing Flying Colors Curbside Service!
We've heard from our FlyCo Faithful! You want to get new comics during this shutdown!

* For customers who are "named" in our system
* And for those who regularly reserve comics in advance

Here's what we can do:
1) Hit the link to look over the list of New Comics for the week of March 18-24:
2) If you would like to add any of these new titles to the list of comics you regularly have us hold for you, email coolstuff@flyingcolorscomics.com with your additions.
If there are graphic novels or comic supplies (bags & boards) you'd like to add that we have in stock, we'd be happy to add those to your order, too.

(Please note: Some items are in limited supply and some editions may not be at cover price. If you only want regularly priced editions, let us know. We are not currently offering any more than one copy per item.)
3) Include your phone number in the email. Orders without phone numbers can not be filled.
4) We will call you to get your credit card info and charge your card only for the items you've requested. At this strange time, please understand we are not accepting cash payments.
5) We'll arrange an approximate time (a 30 minute window) for you to swing by the Flying Colors parking lot. We'll then package your order and deliver it to your car when you call the shop once you're in our parking lot. Our number is 925-825-5410.

Please note: To comply with the social distancing mandates, we will NOT be allowing anyone into the shop!
