COVID update!

UPDATE: California is now back at the Purple Tier as of midnight Monday night/Tuesday morning, but retail stores still remain open! Every stay safe, stay distanced!

REMINDER: Sterling Silver Comics is still open for walk-in business, so long as all precautions are taken (social distancing, masks, etc.). Even if the county moves back to the Purple Tier restrictions, retail businesses such as mine may still remain open for business. However, mail order and curbside pickup has been, and will remain, available for any of our customers who prefer those options. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!

Today is the sixth anniversary of Sterling Silver Comics.

Just wanted to give a big thanks to all of my customers for the great support they’ve shown my store, Sterling Silver Comics, ever since it opened on November 5th, 2014. It means a great deal to me that you all have stuck with me this entire time, especially this year when things got to be quite difficult for all of us.

I appreciate everything you’ve done for me, and I look forward to providing top-notch funnybook service to you for years to come! Thanks again, and I’ll see you at the shop!

Still open to the public!

Just a reminder that Sterling Silver Comics is open regular hours for walk-in business, so long as distancing and masking guidelines are followed! New comics are coming in every week, and I offer mail order and curbside pickup options for those who prefer or need them!

If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email!

Yes, we are still open…and Free Comic Book Summer is happinging, too!

There’s been some concern with the recent reclosings of some California businesses, but I just want to assure you that Sterling Silver Comics is still open to the public! The new closing order does not affect retail businesses like mine, and we are allowed to still service the public so long as we follow the distance-keepin’, mask-wearin’ regulations!

So, drop on in…or if you prefer to keep doing mail order or curbside pickup, that’s okay too! Feel free to call with any questions!

And, as you saw by the pic above, Free Comic Book Day Summer is upon up! Every Wednesday from this week ’til the beginning of September, we’ll have a new batch of FREE COMICS for you to pick up! C’mon in and help yourselves!

Hours for Saturday, July 4th!

I will be open for at least part of the day Saturday, July 4th, from 11 AM ’til whenever it feels like it’s time to shut the doors for the day. I’ll be here at least ’til 4 PM.

Everyone have a safe holiday!

It’s s Free Comic Book Day SUMMER!

Free Comic Book Day will be happening this year, but it won’t be just one day, but a whole lotta days!

Every week, from July 15th to September 9th, a small assortment of free comics will be made available! All free to you, no purchase necessary! Just come in and say “GIMME THOSE FREE COMICS, PLEASE!” There will be new ones every week, so check back here to see what will be available each and every Wednesday! Also, I plan to have some kind of special deal/sale to coincide with each free comic book release, so also check back here for details!

As always, you can check out the official Free Comic Book Day site for more information!

A couple of reminders!

Just reminding you about two things:

1. Sterling Silver Comics is open for walk-in business (just wear a mask!) but if you prefer mail order or curbside pick-up, that’s still okay too!

2. I’m still listing newly-priced back issues (like those pictured above!) on this Google sheet…see anything there you’d like, just contact me and we’ll get those goodies into your hands!

Yes, we’re officially open to the public again!

SURPRISE! Just got official word from the city….my doors are now open, and you can actually come into the store again! All I ask is that you maintain recommended physical distancing and wear some kind of mask…we all still need to be careful and not get sick!

If you still prefer to get your stuff from me via mail order or curbside pickup, those options are of course still available.

Thanks for your patience, everyone, and I look forward to seeing your (masked) faces again!


Apparently if you Google up the store, it has us marked as “TEMPORARILY CLOSED,” but I promise you, I am open for pick-up and mail orders! I may not be allowed to let folks actually into the store, but I am getting new product and selling goodies to whoever needs them!

Already contacted Google to have them change that notification, but I am here! I’ve been here the whole time, working more or less regular hours processing your orders. If you need anything, either for curbside pickup or to be mailed to your door, just email me, message me, or give me a ring at 805-484-4708. Thanks!


As per the California goverment’s Phase Two for reopening businesses, Sterling Silver Comics will now be open for curbside pickup!

Which is, of course, good timing since I’m beginning to get new comic shipments at the store again! You already know that I’ve been receiving small shipments of new DC Comics for the last couple of weeks. Starting Wednesday, May 20th, I will begin to receive full shipments of new comics and goodies from Diamond, includig new Marvel, new Dark Horse, and new everything else.

I know curbside pickup isn’t as convenient or fun for comic shopping, but be sure to keep an eye on this website to see what’s new each week, and feel free to call me with your wants (if you don’t already have a pull box with me) and we can get your orders processed and ready for when you come to the store!

Thank you for all your support during this difficult time for all of us, and with any luck, you’ll be able to wander the aisles of my shop once again someday soon!
