Run along now…time to follow the funny book store that you adore….I’ll wait….
Seems we’re pretty good at it….
“This seller is excellent. FAST shipping. Product was even better than I expected. If I see Brave New World as the seller Ill buy it with 1 click and no worries, Luv you guys, Thanx,Jim”
“I’m a big fan of high-caliber sellers with excellent communication skills… 🙂
Thanks again and be well, -jason”
Oh, my goodness gracious. What a week that was!! Lemme summarize: sprained ankle, jury duty, squatter, Deputies, FTA, Free Comic Book Day! You’ll forgive me if I don’t get you all the details (and costume contest winners!!) for a few minutes, yeah? Cuz mama needs a nap….
Suffice it to say that FCBD was AMAAAAHZING. We had a wonderful time, and truly hope you did, too. There are approximately 7 Brazilian pictures from the event right over here, and I swear on my ice pack that I will catch you up next time! Special thanks to all who attended, all who assisted, and all of you who make
EVERY day around here a super great time.
I forgot our anniversary.
Fellas, I know how you feel. OOPS. Thursday, May 1th was my 14th anniversary of being the head of this silly band of weirdos that make up the award winning, internationally renowned, and darn right keen funny book store that you adore. (That’s right: I’ve owned it since I was, like, 12. What of it?) I probably could have done it without you…but I sure never wanted to try. Thank you all for continuing to keep up with us, and trust that the silly ideas all amount to something in the end. You’re the very best customer/friends a girl could ask for. Now…about that nap….
MEET BEC DIXON!
Gorgeous and talented writer
will be here @ The World
Come meet her, grab a copy along with your new funny books, get a little Super Life Drawing in, and stay for Kogi BBQ.
Boom! Your Wednesday night just planned itself! See you there!
Look at these mugs! I don’t have a ton to say about them, other than A) They’re awesome. B) They’ve been some of our most popular Booty-Q items, so don’t sit around and stare at them: come get some! and 3) the Geek Boutique has just crossed an interesting threshold: now hosting art and goodies from around the world (Hi, Budapest!), and from more than 70 vendors. How you like them almas?

In related news, and knowing full well that I may get in big trouble for this….please consider contributing to this extremely well intentioned and worthwhile GoFundMe account.
It’s for our dear friend Paul…some of you know him as Roxy from our weekly HeroClix tournaments…who has been dealt one of the worst hands I’ve ever known in recent months.
I’ll make you a deal:
You contribute, prove it to me, and I will match whatever you send him in Brave New Bucks.
Deal? DEAL. Thanks for considering it, you guys. Few people have bigger, kinder, or more generous hearts than the Citizens of the Brave New World.
See? You know him. He’s the silly one who tends to win!
And we absolutely adore him.
Until next time, I’m still…
