Dec 8th, the rejoicing return of The Amazing Screw-On Head, a true marvel of fun in comics. Meanwhile, Marvel tries to see if Wilson Fisk is as big a menace as Norman Osborn in "Devil's Reign" (not to be confused with the Dark Reign from 2009). More holiday stuff rolls in, the Big Sale continues along with several favorites. See you soon.

Thanks for the cool crazy draft last friday! I'll definitely be there for the next one! ♥️♥️♥️
Hello! I'm Eli Powell, a comic book artist and creator. This year I completed a solo comic book called Ravage 88, which I wrote & drew all myself. I self-published it and put it up for sale on Amazon.com and I was wondering if you might consider ordering some and selling them at your store. Here's the link to the book on Amazon— https://www.amazon.com/Ravage-88-Eli-Powell/dp/1717986986 I can also send you a link to the full PDF if you wish, just let me know if you're interested! Anyway, just trying to promote it and get it out there any way I can. Thanks for checking it out and taking the time to read this. -Eli Powell
