Greetings! I hope that you all had a very happy holiday. Thanks so much for making the Source part of your holiday gift giving. Hans in his role of minister of misinformation, said that new comics would be out on Thursday instead of Wednesday. Hans is WRONG! New comics will be on the shelf this Wednesday! Have a safe and happy New Year. Thanks!

NEW THIS WEEK AT THE SOURCE!
“THE MASK IS WHO YOU ARE”
In a near future, a sprawling megalopolis sees the rise of “Boneheads” parkour-gangs that use neuro-linked helmets to augment their abilities and live for the thrill of physical risk. As a gang war threatens to tear the city apart, a mysterious Bonehead rises, a man with no past that might be the key to saving the city’s future. From writer BRYAN HILL (POSTAL) and artist RHOALD MARCELLIUS ( Marvel’s Contest of Champions ) comes a story about technological and human revolution.
We are NO LONGER buying Bulk Cards.
Thanks to you folks, we have all that we need for now..

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.
