Hi, my name is David, and I own AK Comics. The "AK" stands for my kids first names, and yes, it does annoy them when friends at school ask them about their "dad's store". :) I started my store because I'm a huge comics and toy geek. They say you should try to sell what you know, and I know comics. No, I'm not the type of person who has encyclopedic knowledge in my head on the history of comics. But I do know a couple things.
Come in, have a chat, discuss what you're reading. I read ALOT of books, so I might know what you're talking about. Of course, if I don't know, I blame old age and cannot be held responsible. :)
I also see a ton of movies. Not only comic book related ones, so maybe we can chat about that. Don't worry, I'm not shy about my opinion. ;)
Speaking of movies, The Hangover was the best comedy I've seen in years, but The Hangover 2 sucked ass :o(
I've noticed the key to a hit movie in 2012....The Bow and Arrow...have someone shooting a Bow and Arrow, and you've got a winner this year. Hunger Games, Avengers, Brave. :o)
Oh, and if anyone can explain to me how Marvel can make so many movies (not all great of course...Punisher War Zone sucked so bad) and D.C., which is owned by a MOVIE COMPANY (Warners Brothers) can barely get ONE movie out a year, please let me know.
(I'm talking live action, not animated, they're usually 2 different divisions in a company)
Fingers crossed!!!! D.C. actually has a super hero movie coming out and it's NOT Batman.......SUPERMAN hits theatres in June. Henry Cavill looks good in the costume, let's all hope the story is great. The BIG bonus on this movie is Christopher Nolan is overseeing production. He killed with the Batman Trilogy, so I have high hopes. :o)
"The latest rumors (with anyone else it'd be a press release, with Warner Bros/ DC comics, it's a rumor) there's going to be a Justice League teaser at the end of the credits for Man of Steel....that's gonna be awesome"
Why am I not surprised that this RUMOR was proven to be false. Great old Warners brothers. How can a company drop the ball this often and still be in existence???
Looks like 2013 is going to be a another GREAT summer for Super-Hero movies!!
Ironman 3...Thor 2...Man of Steel. It's good to be a lifelong comic geek...FINALLY!!! :o)
Thank god the Mayans were full of crap cause I can't wait till 2015. We'll have Avengers 2...Guardians of the Galaxy...Justice League...STAR WARS 7!!!!!!
I don't have a problem with Disney buying Star Wars. Let's just hope they can keep George off the set. Yes George, you created an awesome universe, but you do a disservice to your legions of fans when you disregard all the literature that's come out when making your movies. You need to step back and ask for, and then ACCEPT, help when writing these things.
I, for one, expect to see the big 3 back in SW7. They've all come out and said they want to do it. Han and Leia married with kids and grandkids. Luke (and Mara maybe) also with kids and grandkids. Luke has already restarted the Jedi academy. He's obviously the master, Leia is also a master as are some of the kids. All teaching the newest recruits. Man I hope it's great.
Now let's talk about TV. I'm loving the Walking Dead. Season 3 and this show is still rockin'. AMC has already commited to season 4, AND they're saying that it'll be an even longer season with more episodes...wheeeeeee
PULLING OUT THE SOAPBOX...BUY LOCAL!!!
Yeah, it's nice that you might be able to save a couple bucks by buying through an online store, good for you. But you know when you come in looking for a comic book that you didn't order it through them, or a certain Magic card or a couple of boosters? You see how convenient it is to have a local store? Well, this local store won't be here for much longer if you people don't stop supporting the economy in other neighborhoods instead of this neighborhood.
Putting soapbox away
At AK Comics, I carry a wide selection of new & old comics, from DC, Marvel, Image, IDW, Top Cow, Aspen, Boom, DE & many others. I
have a minimum of 10 boxes of quarter comics at any time, and lots of back issues from the last few years. I
buy comic collections from the 1970's & earlier, but any collection will be looked at.
All new comics & books are 10% off. I have a subscription service available. All
subscribers get 15% off their books. There is no service fee for ordering out of stock items that are still available.
Everybody always gets a free comic book.
I have a limited number of D&D and other gaming books on hand. Most
books that are not in-store can be ordered and usually received within a week (sometimes within 2 days), if
they are in stock at my distributor. These are also 10% off.
I have a large selection of carded Super-hero Action figures, Star Wars figures & vehicles from the early 90's to Now. I
carry Hotwheels, Treasure Hunts, and a small selection of beanie babies.
Magic: The Gathering
I have held weekly Magic tournaments in the past. Unfortunately, over the last couple years weekly tournament attendance has evaporated. I'm open to holding sanctioned and non-sanctioned tournaments. If interested, just contact me and we can arrange something.
Pre-order a new box of Magic card releases at great savings. Normal pricing for Magic packs is $3.50 EA. $11 for intro packs. Many
single Magic cards are available for sale.
