Returns on Border Town.

Due to recent events involving the writer of the series, the DC/Vertigo series Border Town has been cancelled, and DC Comics is taking returns from retailers on all prevously published issues (#1 through #4, plus the second printing of the first issue).

If you bought this comic from me, and no longer wish to have it in your possession, feel free to bring it back and I will give you full store credit. I am going on the honor system here…I am asking you to return your copies to me only if you bought them from me. I can only return as many copies to DC as I’ve ordered. (Like, if you walk in with 10 copies of #2 to return, I’m going to know you didn’t get those from me!) If you bought them from another store, please contact them and ask what their policy on this comic is/will be.

Please make your returns by the first week of the new year. Thank you!

Notice for Monday, December 10th.

As some of you folks may already know, I have been having some vision trouble with my right eye for which I have been undergoing treatment over the past few months. This Monday, December 10th, I will be going in for surgery to hopefully correct this issue once and for all. As a result, I won’t be in the shop that Monday, but I will still be open that day as I’ll have someone filling in for me.

The store will be open the rest of the week as normal, and new comics will be out for sale Wednesday as usual. I may be a little slow responding to email and Facebook messages as I try to catch up from missing a day, but I’ll get back to you, honest! I’m doing my best to make sure my medical shenanigans don’t interfere with your shopping experience!

Thank you for understanding, and hope to see you (with *two* working eyes!) at the shop!

Notice for November 30th!

Rock City will be holding a benefit concert for the victims of the Borderline shooting on Friday, November 30th. While I will be open that day, the parking lot will be closed off for the event, which starts at 6 PM. There is plenty of other parking in the area, if you don’t mind talking a little walk to come to see! I’ll be there and open, honest!

You can learn more about the event right here.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Sterling Silver Comics will be closed for Thanksgiving, but we’ll be open again Friday for all your comic book needs! Enjoy your holiday and we’ll see you afterwards!

It only seems like 1,461 days!

Today is the fourth anniversary of the opening of Sterling Silver Comics! I recently made a long post tooting my own horn about my 30 years in the business, so rather than re-toot myself at length again, let me just thank all of you for the success of my store. Opening my own shop was something I’d been wanting to do for a long time, and it wouldn’t have gone anywhere if it weren’t for my great customers.

Thank you again, and here’s to the next four…or even forty years of serving you at Sterling Silver Comics!

Also available are “blind bag” variants of several other issues from the run of the series, wrapped in black covers disguising which version of the cover you’re getting! Every issue a surprise!
