Greetings!  How’re you?  The Source would like to wish you and yours a very happy Labor Day in advance!  We will be closed on Monday, September 4 in observance of the holiday, but we’re definitely open the weekend leading up to it.  Who knows?  If you’re heading to the Minnesota State Fair, you could swing by the Source and say “Hello”.  While you’re here, check out some of the new games that are being released post Gen Con.   Unlike our previous location, we actually have parking during the State Fair!  We also have that great game room space with events going on almost all the time.  Thanks!
Wolverine is still dead.

HAPPY 100TH BIRTHDAY JACK KIRBY!!!
THE SOURCE WOULD LIKE TO SAY THANKS TO COMIC ARTIST EXTRAORDINAIRE, BRENT SCHOONOVER, FOR HELPING US CELEBRATE JACK’S BIRTHDAY ON MONDAY.  BRENT CRANKED OUT 100 SKETCHES OF JACK’S GREATEST COMIC CHARACTERS OVERALL.  THANK YOU BRENT, AND THANK YOU JACK!
BY THE WAY, THERE’S BEEN A LOT OF JACK KIRBY REPRINTS HITTING THE SHELVES LATELY.  IF WE DON’T HAVE ENOUGH, IT’S BECAUSE HANS IS A STUPID HEADED BLORK WHO DIDN’T START READING COMICS UNTIL THE LATE 1970’S.  SHEESH!  AS ALWAYS, WE WILL BE HAPPY TO PLACE AN ORDER FOR YOU ON ANYTHING THAT WE’RE SOLD OUT OF.  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
Welcome back to Tim’s corner. 
Hello from Tim’s corner. The summer is sure going by fast.

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.
