25 years young!

Brian Hibbs

April 1, 1989, I first opened the doors of Comix Experience.  I guess it’s now going to be a thing, finally? I made $117.42 on that first day. My deepest and most profound thanks to all of our customers over these decades. Clearly, I could not have done it without you. Let’s see if I can do 25 more! (Man, I wish comments were working here, *sigh*) -B

Tilting #231 is up: What do you do with 50k back issues?

You can, as always, find it on Comic Book Resources. I wish I knew why our comments weren’t working right here….   -B

Tilting #230 is live: BookScan 2013

Yay, the longest thing I write every year. Man, I didn’t AT ALL have the time to write this one, either. Go read it, then let me know what you think…… -B

James Robinson signing @ Outpost 2/26, 5-7 PM

Brian Hibbs

The first signing for Comic Outpost is a super-doozy: Industry legend James Robinson (who, fun fact, had his first GN release with LONDON’S DARK the same year I opened my first store) will be appearing to support FANTASTIC FOUR #1 (on day of release), as well as ALL-NEW INVADERS and his Image comic THE SAVIORS.  I couldn’t be more excited. Comic Outpost is located at 2381 Ocean Ave in San Francisco.  There is buckets of free parking north of the store, and we literally have a stop of the K line streetcar right in front of the shop; we’re all of 8 stops on the underground from downtown, it is a short and easy hop. (And thank you Jeff Lester…  Read More…

Hey, internet? Help me research?

Brian Hibbs

So I just got the 2013 BookScan data, but for me the biggest hole is ALWAYS “stuff that didn’t get categorized correctly” — supposed to be coded as “comics”, but, instead, it is listed as something else.  This happens the most frequently with “Memoir” books — I have to manually request things like Maus and Persepolis every year, because they’re not natively on the “Comics” list. Usually, I spend a few days combing through the previous year’s invoices, hoping to spot something obvious, but this year, with the second store, I barely have time to write the BookScan column at all, let alone being fussy about trying to find those 1-2 books that are worth reporting on, but got missed….  Read More…

A thought about “Free” Comic Book Day

Brian Hibbs

The first Saturday in May is coming soon, and with it Free Comic Book Day. I Love Free Comic Book Day. Adore it.  It’s the happiest day of the year, as far as I am concerned. But one thing it very much isn’t is “free” for the retailer. I count fifty-seven FCBD comics for 2014. If your retailer were to let you have one copy of each release, her cost would be $16.83. That doesn’t count the shipping, either. Figure about another $2.85 to get those comics into the store. The total, then? $19.68. It’s just something to bear in mind when you rush down to FCBD — Just three comics for you can be over a dollar (depending on…  Read More…

Tilting at Windmills #229 is up!

This is how you know I am beyond overworked right now — I totally forgot to link to the new column on CBR. My opening thoughts on running two stores. (GOD, I AM SO TIRED AND OVERWORKED, it isn’t even funny!!!!) Read it, love it, comment here, if you like -B

And below the jump will be this year’s list of best-selling books and graphic novels at Comix Experience!

There are those people who find this kind of thing interesting, and those who have no interest — I put it behind the jump for the benefit of the latter!

An Expanding “Empire”

Brian Hibbs

I’m pretty excited to say that I just completed the asset transfer agreement, and we’ll be taking over San Francisco’s Comic Outpost as of 12/16/13. It only took me 24 years to do it, but finally Comix Experience will have a second store! -B

Forgot to post this earlier — the newest TILTING is up at CBR, on liquidating books and stuff.  SEXY TOPIC! Comment and let me know that people do read what I write…   -B

Staggeringly Epic, part 2

Brian Hibbs

Just because I’m not seeing anything on any of the News sites, let’s print out today’s news release:   ************ Due to a production shortage, DC Entertainment announces an update on allocations to these Villains Month 3-D Motion Cover issues: • Batman #23.4: Bane (JUL130188) will ship at approximately 93% of your previous allocation. • Batman/Superman #3.1: Doomsday (JUL130184) will ship at approximately 84% of your previous allocation. • Superman #23.4: Parasite (JUL130183) will ship at approximately 90% of your previous allocation. All three of these issues are scheduled to arrive in stores on September 25. As a reminder, the standard editions of these titles are available for advance reorder   ************* If you don’t speak retailer, that says that…  Read More…

Must Watch Direct Market history video

Brian Hibbs

Follow this link to Mark Evanier’s site and watch this video of the Mike Douglas show and see video of DM founder Phil Seuling discussing comics on national TV in 1977. Astounding footage! I never had the pleasure of meeting Seuling, or, prior to this ever even seeing video of him — so this was a fabulous and fantastic find for me. Thanks Mark!! I especially like how they’re just taking the old comics and flapping them around — “Oh, look, a FAMOUS FUNNIES #1; here, catch!” Without that guy you almost certainly wouldn’t be reading blogs about comic books today… except maybe in the most nostalgic way.   -B

Kids these days!

Brian Hibbs

So, I’m waiting for UPS this AM, and because my driver is the most passive-aggressive one in the system (it’s a long long story) he’s way down on the far corner so he doesn’t park where I can instantly spot him (seriously, LONG story!) Then I see two gentlemen strolling down the street in front of the store, carrying  Diamond box.  I dream about Diamond boxes. I can spot one from a mile away, most likely. I walk outside. “Uh, excuse me, guys, but would you mind telling me just why you’re carrying my box down the street?” The one not carrying the box puffs up like a rooster, “Yo, bitch! This ain’t your box, this is OUR box, got…  Read More…

The staggeringly epic incompetence of DC Entertainment

Brian Hibbs

I’ve already written a great number of words on the subject of next month’s DC “Villain month” cover stunt, and I suggest that you follow that link for some reasoned background. Sadly, the real villain of the month is DC Entertainment. As some of you might know (though, not it would seem, from the actual comics press: CBR, Robot 6, The Beat, The Reporter, I’m not finding a single link as I write this at 8:30 in the AM the day after the announcement) DC announced that each and every 3D cover is going to be allocated, and that they’re doing a same-day 2D reprint for $1 less…. oh, and by the way, that’s the digital price as well. Below…  Read More…
