July 2020 Preview
July Preview - Here's to July carrying on the June rebuild -#backthecomeback.
Our weekly comic shipments have resumed their reliable schedule (and I am optimistic the new DC distribution will roll on almost seamlessly – the litmus test will be next week).
Games Workshop's releases are ramping up with lots of new Black Library books and the big new 40K edition is due out early July. Our board game suppliers are all talking about big supply and transport problems which apparently will be the normal through to Christmas 2020! We are so-far keeping our Boardgame shelves full though - grabbing whatever we can get from as many sources as possible. Pokemon, Yugioh and Magic the Gathering all have big releases either on shelf now or arriving soon.
Keep an eye on our Funko Pop shelves with another big shipment due mid July.
COMIC VOLUME SALE
Lots of new stuff heading our way in July - before we get into that we had better make some room on the shelves! Here is a heap of new Graphic Novel/Comic Volumes marked down super cheap. Lots of good reads here - with a special focus on some nice runs of DC New 52 era books - check out all the bargains here https://mk1.co.nz/collections/graphic-novels/sale?sort_by=created-descending
