We’ve put together a quick customer survey to gather customers opinions on our store. It would be great if you could fill it out for us! Your input will help us continue to make Chapel Hill Comics AWESOME!
Join us on Friday, Nov. 28th for our BLACK FRIDAY SALE! We will be open from 9am-9pm and the earlier you get here, the better the deals! The details are on the flier below! See you there!
Yeah, it’s been a while since we updated our web page. Now that the transfer of the store to the New Dude (that’s me, I’m Ryan) is pretty well complete it’s time to start getting the Chapel Hill Comics news and info up here. ALLONS-Y!
What has NOT changed?
-Let me assure you that all the things you love about Chapel Hill Comics are still here! We still intend to bring our customers a wide variety of comics and graphic novels. In the words of one customer, “I like your store because you always have…the weird stuff.” We probably prefer to say we have a great selection of eclectic, indy, small press, local and other alternative titles along with the mainstream DC, Marvel, Image, Dark Horse, Vertigo, etc. titles. Then again we could run with that quote.
What HAS changed?
We recently Change our hours to better accommodate our customers. Now we are open later and earlier on most days!
More Geek Stuff
We have been trying to get more geeky fun merchandise in the store like, action figures, keychains, buttons, jewelry, statues, mystery box figures, and more! We’ll keep looking for more cool stuff to bring in that not only relates to comic titles, but also other sci fi, movie, gaming, and other geekery…if that’s a word. Let us know if there is something you would like us to carry.
We have streamlined the special order process to get you the books you need as fast as possible. We can’t have everything in the store, but we want to be the go to source for your comics!
People offer to sell their collections to us all the time. During the transfer we put a hold on buying any back issues, but slowly we have been back at it. We have been bulking up the dollar comics, creating lots of new sets, bringing out recent back stock to the floor and even brought in some great key and high end issues of X-Men, Spider-Man, and more. Make sure to check out our back room and the new Back Issue Display Shelf to see what new/old/awesome stuff comes in.
Y’all, if you haven’t heard, I am selling the store on July 14. You can read about it right here. Before I pass the torch to the next generation, though, I’m having one last throwdown in celebration. I’m bringing in some of my favorite comics professionals for a big signing on Saturday, July 12. There’ll be comics, food (catered by our longtime friends at Mediterranean Deli!), and fun, so please mark your calendars now for the
GREATEST SIGNING OF ALL TIME!
Ed Piskor will be back in the store to sign more copies of the best-selling HIP HOP FAMILY TREE! This is the beginning of the definitive history of hip hop in ANY MEDIUM, with more volumes to come! All fans of Hip Hop Culture owe it to themselves to read this work.
Jim Rugg will return to the store to sign the beautiful new hardcover printing of STREET ANGEL, as well as copies of his other masterworks, AFRODISIAC and SUPERMAG. Street Angel is about a homeless teenage girl on a skateboard who fights ninjas and conquistadors. Afrodisiac is an incredible Blaxploitation art book/comic. You gotta cop these if you don’t have them already.
Tom Scioli will be at Chapel Hill Comics for the first time to sign the brand new TRANSFORMERS VS GI JOE #1! Tom is also the artist of GODLAND and the creator of the super-psychedelic AMERICAN BARBARIAN! His work is old school and super-futuristic all at once, and we’re very excited to host him at the store! We will have copies of Godland Celestial Edition Volume 1 and 2, and Godland TPB #5 (Far Beyond the Big Bang) and #6 (Goodbye, Cosmic), which all together cover the complete series. He’ll also be bringing his minicomics Satan’s Soldier 1-4, and Final Frontier!
CHRIS PITZER and his pal ANDREW NEAL
Chris Pitzer is the publisher of Adhouse books, which has consistently been the publisher of the best comics out there over the course of my ownership of Chapel Hill Comics. I love Pitzer and I love his books, so I’m thrilled he’s coming out. And I’ll be there too. If you want to come shake my hand before I hand the crown over to the new King of Chapel Hill Comics, come on by!
We’ll also have a special display of Jim Rugg’s art by super art collector Ben Huang, as well as the original cover art to Jim’s Walking Dead Ghost Variant, courtesy of me! It’s an art show too!
Please, please make plans to come out to get some incredible comics signed and to help me celebrate the twenty(!) years I’ve spent with the store and the eleven years I’ve spent as its owner. I’m thrilled and excited about the sale and about this signing; it should be a lot of fun!
