Status Report for Saturday, 28 March 2020

Tony will be in the shop on Saturday, 28 March 2020, from noon-5pm. You can call 617-492-6763 during that time or email us before/during ( with your phone number and he will call you. It might be Sunday if he runs out of time on Saturday. Tony is delivering comics to Cambridge, Somerville, Medford, Arlington, and Belmont with a minimum purchase of $15. He’s going farther afield for larger orders. We’re also packing comics to ship to remote locations! Unfortunately, we’ve had to discontinue curbside pickup for the time being.

You can buy a gift certificate via our PayPal using (but DO NOT EMAIL that address; you will not get a response). Just put the details in the note section PayPal provides. You have THREE options: (1) we can mail out gift certificates via the United States Postal Service, (2) we can hold them at the shop until we’re open again, or (3) we can put them in with an order of comics/graphic novels and deliver them to your house… let us know your preference in the note.

If you’re looking for prose books, we may be able to order them as well since we have access to a couple of distributors that are still open who do both graphic novels and prose books.

Unfortunately, voicemail is still broken, sorry! Tony did a bunch of deliveries this week, while I (kjc) have been on the phone with Verizon, trying to get our voicemail working. Third time’s the charm right? (I’ve been trying to get it working since Tuesday.)

There’s all kinds of other stuff we’re trying to fix or organize or sort out as well. It feels like we’re busier than when the shop was open.

Well do a more detailed announcement soon, but I think we — and the lovely Jason Wiser — will be running another iteration of our online comix class for kids week after next (4/6-4/10).
