COMIC QUEST NEWSLETTER FOR 6/6/20!

COVID-19,CIVIL UNREST AND COMIC BOOK INDUSTRY FLIP FLOPS!

I am writing this now within the context of the viral pandemic we have experienced in which we were ordered by the State of Indiana to close for about two months, the social/civil unrest associated with societal problems many years in the making and now, in case you haven’t heard, DC Comics is turning the comic book industry upside down by terminating their contract with Diamond Comics.

JUSTICE LEAGUE #45 cover

We have all been stressed and scared by the global pandemic. We all have to be concerned and anxious about the social unrest and discord currently in our society.

By addressing DC Comics news is not to compare it to the upheaval created by Covid-19 and current civil unrest. But I want to allay any fears that all of these stresses and changes, CQ being closed for 8 weeks or so, for instance, may have on your concerns about CQ’s ability to function in this new world we are in. CQ is doing well and is very healthy. Without going into details, we have been fortunate to come out of the past several months in stronger financial shape than before the pandemic. Much of this is due to serendipity and grace. Suffice to say, our sales, confidence and resolve are strong. We are moving forward with better merchandising, strong product lines and professional staff. If you haven’t been in lately you need to see our new kid’s area, our improved tpb/graphic novel footprint, improvements in the organization of our back issues, many new fixtures, and our revamped vintage comic book area.

While DC Comics decision does not seem to make our work easier we will do what we need to do to offer you all the comic related products you enjoy including DC comics, toys and graphic novels. We will adjust to these industry changes.

What I want everyone to know is that we have seen many changes in the industry in the past thirty years. All of these changes has required a steady hand, resilience and adaptability. The sales environment we now offer is the result of responding to changing desires of our customer base and the various industries which supply us our product lines. We humbly submit to you that we are healthy, working hard to serve your collecting and entertainment needs and we look forward to serving you for many years to come. We continue to be grateful for your patronage and understand it is all about the support you provide that keeps us in business now for close to 30 years!

HOURS REMAIN THE SAME!

As a reminder we are open daily Sundays through Tuesday from noon to 6pm and Wednesday through Saturday 10am to 7pm.

Eighty years after his apparent demise, single mother Claire and her Adventurefan son Tommy seem to be the only two people alive that remember the thrilling ADVENTUREMAN sagas…but from that memory burns THE SPARK OF RESURRECTION! WHERE HIS STORY ENDED…HER STORY BEGINS! This sense-obliterating, earth-shaking, imagination-quaking adventure that spans generations comes to you from MATT FRACTION (SEX CRIMINALS, Hawkeye) and TERRY & RACHEL DODSON (X-Men/Fantastic Four, RED ONE)!!!

CIMMERIAN RED NAILS #1 CVR E CASAS SUPERMAN PARODY CVR (MR)

(W) Regis Hautiere (A) Olivier Vatine, Didier Cassegrain (CA) Fritz Casas             THE RETURN OF ROBERT E. HOWARD’S FAMOUS SAVAGE UNCENSORED!
  Robert E. Howard’s Conan is brought to life uncensored!  Discover the true Conan, unrestrained, violent, and sexual.  Read the story as he intended!
   In Red Nails, Conan finds himself in the Darfar region, whose territory is almost entirely covered by a huge forest.  Here he pledges himself a mercenary, promising his sword to the highest bidder, fighting alongside fellow mercenary and fierce female warrior Valeria.  After a clash against a terrible dragon, the two go to a strange fortified city, apparently deserted…but the duo will quickly discover that a civilization lives hidden inside, and that the citadel hides a heavy secret.
   Red Nails is one of Conan’s most beloved and sophisticated stories. Howard affirms his style, persisting in his mistrust of modern civilizations, consumed by passivity, laxity and cruelty. Régis Hautière, Olivier Vatine and Didier Cassegrain give substance to this tale in splendid colors.  
  “Howard’s writing seems so highly charged with energy that it nearly gives off sparks.”  -Stephen King
