Greetings! Did I mention that FANFEST is this weekend?  No?  Then you should check out the ad below for FANFEST!  You know who’s going to miss FANFEST?  Bob!  He’s at GENCON (which is also pretty cool).  Do you know who should miss FANFEST?  NOBODY!!!  The weird thing is, even with all this FANFEST action going on, Burl still finds time to run D&D Encounters on Wednesday night in the game room.  Check it out!  Thanks!

Shieldmaiden Sunday

We see women all of the time around here, but they don’t always see each other. And so, join us for Shieldmaiden Sundays. We’re open 12-6 on Sundays and during that time, if you’re a lady nerd seeking to hang out with other lady nerds to chat comics and cosplay, play casual magic or table top games, or start an RPG campaign, this is your day.

Other events in the game room will proceed as normal, under our every day, general game room guidelines. Our intent is to provide the common time and space for women who have asked about how to find other female members of the community. In the event of a special, large event that occupies the game room for the day it will be on the store calendar and anyone on our staff will be happy to help you reserve space on another night if you wish.

Tim

Also, from our inventory, I’ve restocked titles from Poison Elves through RoboCop. Come on in and get some comics before your summer reading time is over.

HOW ABOUT A SOME LIGHT ROLE PLAY?
STORYTELLER’S DICTIONARY
Hardcover-$24.99, 320 pages.
This is a great new book in the role playing section.  It has tons of useful definitions for words that are regularly used in role playing games.  Now, I know what you’re thinking, “ONLY A COMIC AND GAME CLERK LIKE YOU WOULD SIT AROUND READING A DICTIONARY!”, and you’re probably right.  But let me ask you this:  Have you ever gotten a stalactite confused with a stalagmite?  That’s what I thought.  You should by this book!

 

 See You In 30 is your monthly comics show! The last Wednesday of each month hosts Lisa Olson & Adam Vermillion deliver comic previews, news, and reviews from the Twin Cities! Hey you! See You In 30 on the Fancy Pants Gangsters Network!

Each week, they feature a local comic book artist’s wit and works, review the new books that hit the stands that day, meet a superhero or two, bring up a few of the country’s best comedians, and create a safe and welcoming space for anyone who likes comic books or is interested in learning about them to come hang, laugh, and enjoy themselves.
