COVID update 8-20-21.

Hi pals…starting at midnight, August 21st, Ventura County is requiring masks on all people, regardless of vaccination status, for all inside public places. That includes retail stores like my own. This is due to the rising number of cases in the county…the order is in place until September 19th.

As such, I will once again have to enforce masks in the shop. Thankfully nearly everyone has been agreeable in the past, but I know it’s going to be hard going back to masks after being able to doff them for a bit. Hopefully this will all be over sooner rather than later. Thank you for your cooperation!

Free Comic Book Day on Saturday, August 14th!

Yes, Free Comic Book Day is happening this year, and Sterling Silver Comics will have all the free goodies (while supplies last) for your perusal! Drop by, pick up as many different titles as you want! Just want one or two, that’s fine! Want one of each? Go right ahead! No purchase necessary!

But if you do want to make purchases, we will have our usual great storewide sales, plus some extra surprises!

PLEASE NOTE: due to COVID precautions, the free comics will be displayed outside the store…we will have tables in front of our shop as well as in front of our neighbors Music Freqs, who generously offered up the space. Entry into the store itself may be regulated if it gets too occupied!

Masks are not mandatory, but highly recommended! Let’s all have fun, but it wouldn’t hurt to be safe as well.

Thanks, everyone, and we’ll see you on the 14th!

Happy New Year!


Let’s all kick 2020 out the door and welcome in the hopefully improved year of 2021!

The store will be closed for Friday, New Year’s Day, but I’ll be open again at 11 AM on Saturday! Everyone have fun and stay safe, and I’ll see you at the shop!

Some info for the week!

UPDATES FOR THIS WEEK!

New comics will be here Tuesday and Wednesday, Last week’s DCs (which arrived Thursday due to a FedEx error) will still be up on the new shelf.

I will be CLOSED for New Year’s Day this Friday.

I will be OPEN regular hours otherwise, with the exception of Thursday, New Year’s Eve, as I have a late-morning eyeball doctor appointment and may not be in ’til sometime between 1 and 2 PM.

If you have any comments or questions, please let me know…thank you!

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!

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!
