A COVID-safe Halloween at Flying Colors


We invite you to visit Flying Colors on Halloween, Saturday October 31.

Finally, a day we can all actually look forward to wearing masks!!

Even during this strange COVID-era, we know many kids and adults will want to dress up and have fun.

We'll have FREE comics for anyone visiting Flying Colors while also maintaining safe protocols, including hand sanitizer at several stations around the shop, limiting the number of folks in shop and maintaining some distance.

We hope you can join us!

Flying Colors Comics in the San Francisco Chronicle!

Flying Colors is featured in the San Francisco Chronicle's October 25 Culture section. The topic is FEAR... and this year, we've had to face our fears head on!

Read the article HERE! 

And I was asked to give a few reading recommendations, some dealing with fear and some just because I think they are terrific reads!

FlyCoJoe's "Shirt Off My Back" Fundraiser!


Join us Saturday October 24 for a very low-key COVID-aware event.

This one is simple: Donate to our fundraiser for The Hero Initiative and the Book Industry Charitable Foundation (BINC) and, YES!... you could go home with a well-worn t-shirt from the personal archives of FlyCoJoe and/or a copy of the new edition of STAN'S SOAPBOX: The Collection featuring the wit and wisdom of the late great Stan Lee, signed by FlyCoJoe (a contributor to the book).

All proceeds from the donations will go to benefit The Hero Initiative helping comics creators in need and the Book Industry Charitable Foundation benefiting our nation’s independent booksellers and comic retailers in their time of need.

The thing is, at Flying Colors we've been so blessed to get this far!
2020 has been a nightmare year for most of us...but between the help received from government programs, BINC and especially YOU, our FlyCo Faithful, we WILL make it through to the other side of COVID. Brighter days are ahead!

To be honest, the shirts you'll get from FlyCoJoe's collection for donating are indeed well worn... and some have seen moments of comics history. We will be supplementing FlyCoJoe's collection with more tshirts from comics and movies from the last 30+ years.

The important thing for us is to help give back to the charities giving a lot to the comics industry.

We hope you'll join us.
