Come Buy With Us!

Hey there folks,

We hope that you are having a great holiday season and we’d like to ask a favor.

Things have been a bit slow for us around the shop and we’d appreciate it very much if you could stop in and do some of your holiday gift shopping with us.

We’ve got some things on sale (see below). And we’ve got some back issues packaged up according to story lines that we’re selling for cheaper than their trade paperback counterparts. Plus, Tony is always bringing in interesting back issues from our warehouse, so there’s some turnover there.

We are loaded with lots of trade paperbacks and hardcovers for both kids and adults. We’ve been adding to our biographical section with books in hardcover like Monet: Itinerant of Light (other art biographies include Gauguin: The Other World and Vincent on van Gogh); Glenn Gould: A Life Off Tempo (about the Canadian pianist who was a child prodigy); Economics in Wonderlandd by former U.S. Secretary of Labor Robert Reich; Run For It: Slaves Who Fought For Their Freedom; Billie Holiday; and Thoreau: A Sublime Life.


Plus, we have plenty of copies of the trade paperback Mad About Trump from the writers and publishers of MAD Magazine if you want to delight (or annoy) your relatives.

We have quite a few DC & Marvel omnibuses and hardcovers at 40-50% off. If you like Ms Marvel written by G. Willow Wilson, you may also enjoy one of her earlier books, Cairo, for $9.99 in softcover (regularly $17.99) and $10.99 in hardcover (regularly $24.99). We have The Authority volume 2 by Mark Millar and Frank Quitely in hardcover for $14.99 (regularly $34.99). And we have Django Unchained hardcovers for $9.99, regularly $24.99.

And we have some special signed books, including signed copies of Amulet by Kazu Kibuishi (a featured guest at this year’s MICE: The Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo) and various fairy tale retellings by Metaphrog. We also have a very special deal we made so that we are only one of two shops in the United States with signed and numbered bookplates for SATANIA, the new NBM book written by Fabien Vehlmann and illustrated by a couple of friends of the Million Year Picnic, Kerascoët.

Kerascoët is the pen name of the charming couple Marie Pommepuy and Sebastien Cosset. You may have met them during their signing at the Million Year Picnic or during their attendance as special guests of MICE in October of 2016. Kerascoët is also known for the books Beautiful Darkness, Beauty, Miss Don’t Touch Me, and their work on the Dungeon series. They also illustrated Malala’s Magic Pencil by the Nobel Peace Prize-winning young author Malala Yousafzai.

Finally, a note to our friends who are subscribers. If you haven’t been into the store in a few months, picking up your subscription before the end of the year would be a GREAT holiday present to us, your friends at the Million Year Picnic.
