THE BIG QUAD CITY CON NEWS:
Krypton will be venturing out on the road again (though not too far out of our backyard) to the Quad City Con in a few scant weeks! Please check out details at their website and be sure to follow all safe practices (masks, social distancing, etc) to ensure that cons can slowly return to our world! And be sure to stop by our booth while you’re there!
Quad City Con takes place at the Mid-America Center on Sunday, September 27th, and entry is only $5 – get more info here: https://quadcitycon.com/
THE BIG FREE COMICS NEWS:
Well, Free Comic Book Day didn’t work out this year so far, but you can still pick up some of the free comics! Continuing this Wednesday, stop by Krypton and pick up to 5 titles from this year’s Free Comic Book Day! The new list this week includes:
Enter the Incal #1
Legend of Zelda Princess Splatoon
Sue and Tai-Chan Preview
Again, we ask that you limit to 5 titles per customer. Come on by!
THE BIG STORE OPERATION NEWS:
We understand that this is a very strange time right now. It seems like things are changing by the day all over the country. We’ve got a few things
we wanted to say here:
1) As of today, Krypton’s temporary hours are:
Sunday: 12 PM – 5 PM
Monday: 10 AM – 6 PM
Tuesday: 10 AM – 6 PM
Wednesday: 10 AM – 8 PM
Thursday: 10 AM – 6 PM
Friday: 10 AM – 6 PM
Saturday: 10 AM – 6 PM
2) We will be offering curbside pickup for your comics, if you just want to drive by and pick them up. We’ll pack them up and you can call in with payment, or other methods will be available based on whatever you’re comfortable with.
3) All of our gaming events have been cancelled for the foreseeable future.
Our primary concern at this time is the health and well-being of our customers and staff. We know that this is a tough time for many of you and we want to be at our best in serving your needs. We understand that everyone needs a distraction from the world and we think that comics are the perfect fit for that, so please let us do that for all of you if we can. And most importantly, stay safe and healthy, all of you!
Every week, PREVIEWS world announces which comics, graphic novels, toys and other pop-culture merchandise will arrive at your local comic shop. The products will be on sale in comic shops on the indicated date.
This list is tentative and subject to change. Please check with your retailer for availability.
