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.

After more than a decade out of print, the original cyberpunk action classic returns in glorious 400-page hardcover deluxe editions, featuring an all-new translation, color pages, and new cover designs! In a dump in the lawless settlement of Scrapyard, far beneath the mysterious space city of Zalem, disgraced cyber-doctor Daisuke Ido makes a strange find: the detached head of a cyborg woman who has lost all her memories. He names her Alita and equips her with a powerful new body, the Berserker. While Alita remembers no details of her former life, a moment of desperation reawakens in her nerves the legendary school of martial arts known as Panzer Kunst. In a place where there is no justice but what people make for themselves, Alita decides to become a hunter-killer, tracking down and taking out those who prey on the weak. But can she hold onto her humanity as she begins to revel in her own bloodlust?

He calls himself “The Maker” – and his ultimate plans for this world are far more insane than anything Doctor Doom ever attempted! Now, Doom – as the Infamous Iron Man – is the only one who can stop the mad Maker. Victor is the hero? Reed is the villain? It’s a world gone mad! And as the impossible task of redeeming himself to the Marvel Universe begins to overwhelm him, the truth about Victor’s reincarnated mother is revealed! With enemies on all sides, how can Victor continue to carry on the legacy of Iron Man when the legacy of Doom haunts him at every turn? Collecting INFAMOUS IRON MAN #7-12. Rated T+

WALT KELLY PETER WHEAT COMP SERIES TP VOL 01 | Preview

(W) Walt Kelly, Thomas Andrae (A/CA) Walt Kelly
Walt Kelly’s Peter Wheat comics are renowned for their humor, artistic flair and appeal to both children and adults. The Peter Wheat comic books are extremely rare and have never been collected as a series before, due to their scarcity and rarity. Between 1948 and 1951, Kelly drew thirty-five issues of The Adventures of Peter Wheat, a 16-page comic book given away to bakeries to promote Peter Wheat bread. The stories were fairy tales starring Peter Wheat, an elf-sized boy who lived in a hollow tree on the edge of a wheat field where he and the Little Folk battle Dragonel, Queen of the Hornets. Reprints the first 16 complete Peter Wheat comic books; in-depth essay by comics historian and Walt Kelly expert Dr. Thomas Andrae; afterword by Trina Robbins. Available in Softcover and a PREVIEWS Exclusive Hardcover edition.

Holiday Sale!


The Million Year Picnic would like to wish you a happy and healthy holiday season! Thank you for another great year!

We have a little excess trade stock (we over-ordered a bit for the holidays), so we’re having a sale!


Monday and Tuesday only, 25%
off new trade paperbacks and graphic novels! PLUS 30% off all t-shirts!

ALSO, this week is NOT a skip week as it has been in the past! It’s a full week and includes titles like ALL STAR BATMAN #5, BLACK PANTHER #9, CIVIL WAR II #8, DARK KNIGHT MASTER RACE #7, HULK #1 (new series, great jumping-on point), MONSTRESS #9, and SAGA #41. And a brand new MOON GIRL DEVIL DINOSAUR trade paperback! (Volume 2).

The full shiplist will come out Tuesday afternoon.

We will be open normal hours this week, except for New Years Eve, when we will probably close a bit early.
(In past years, we’ve closed by 7pm, so that seems likely. Feel free to call before stopping by, however… 617-492-6763.)
And New Years Day, when we will also have shortened hours.

With much affection,

The MYP Crew
