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

    Final Reminder for Eisner Q&A

    Hello folks,

    One final reminder that TOMORROW (Thursday, 3/6) is the official start of our Will Eisner Week events (including a sale of 20% off all Eisner-related books). It also happens to be the 97th anniversary of Eisner’s birthday. The start time for our evening event has been variously reported, but since it was in the BOSTON GLOBE as starting at 6:30pm, it will be starting at 6:30pm.

    At the invitation of Stephen Weiner, director of the Maynard Public Library in Maynard, MA, Harvard Square comic shop The Million Year Picnic will participate in Will Eisner Week 2014 as its Boston metro-area representative, hosting or co-hosting a series of events, notably two at the Cambridge Public Library. First, to honor the 97th anniversary of Will Eisner’s birth, there will be a Q&A session between cartoonist Paul Hornschemeier (author of MOTHER, COME HOME; THE THREE PARADOXES; the NEW YORK TIMES best seller LIFE WITH MR DANGEROUS; LET US BE PERFECTLY CLEAR; and ALL AND SUNDRY) and underground comics legend Denis Kitchen (cartoonist; author; founder and publisher of Kitchen Sink Press (1969-1999); founder of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund; and Mr. Eisner’s friend, publisher, and agent for decades) at 6:30pm on Thursday, March 6th, 2014 at the Cambridge Public Library. Books by both authors will be available for purchase, and there will be a book signing after their presentation.

    Hope to see you there,
    Your friends at the MYP
