New comics for March 25th, 2020 (I hope)!

Hi pals! You probably saw my previous message, but I am getting one more shipment of new comics this week, I believe, before Diamond puts everything on hold for a bit. If you have a pull list, or are a walk-in customer looking for books, please give me a call or send me an email with what you’d like, and we’ll have to arrange to get them paid for and into your hands. I expect I am going to hear from a lot of people, so email is probably preferred, which will be more manageable for me. I’ll do my best to get everyone what they’re looking for, but it may be first come, first served on certain new products.

Here’s what I’m expecting:

And just so you know…my distributor is continuing reorder shipments, so I can continue to take special orders! Thanks, and see you…on the phone or in my email box!

Update on new comic shipments!

Just got word from my distributor, Diamond Comics, that starting with product with an on-sale date of April 1st, shipments of new product to all U.S. comic shops will be held until further notice. This means that this week’s shipment of comics will be the last batch of new goodies for a while.

However, I have plenty of old comics and graphic novels available, and am happy to special order items (since Diamond will still be processing reorders) so please feel free to put in your requests. Plus, this might me a good time to catch up on emptying out your pull boxes, hint hint.

This is just a temporary situation, and the comic shipments should resume once things begin to normalize.

I know stopping new comic shipments seems drastic, but this is actually good news for the store’s survival, as I now don’t have to worry about trying to keep up on paying weekly invoices with product going unsold. A lot of you have been helping out, having me ship out your comics and whatnot, but I need foot traffic, I need folks to be able to walk around and find new items they might be interested in…things that are kind of hard to have happen when the store is closed to the public!

Thank you for your continued patronage, and all of your generosity and assistance at this time. We’ll get through this!


Closed for walk-in business, but will still do phone/mail order!

I was hoping it wouldn’t come to this, but here we are. Due to the statewide stay-at-home order, all non-essential businesses are required to close. And as much as I’d like to think I *am* an essential business, that unfortunately applies to me as well.

However, I am still here, and with any luck, depending on my access to funding and cooperation from my distributor, I will continue to receive the new comic shipments. The trick, however, is getting those new comics to you.

It looks like I will have to go exclusively phone/mail order for the time being. I don’t think curbside pickup is *technically* allowed, but if that’s your best option, I’ll do it ’til someone tells me not to.

I am planning to stay at the store mostly regular business hours, so you can call me there at 805-484-4708…please leave a message if I don’t pick up, and I promise I’ll get back to you.

My personal cell phone number is 805-415-7808, and don’t hesitate to call me there if you need to.

You can always message me on Facebook, or via email at, or on Instagram at @sterlingsilvercomics, or on Twitter at @SterSilvComics.

I’ll be going through my pull list customers and calling them individually…if you already saw the message here, I apologize for the redundancy.

I will try to keep you updated here or at my website best I can. With any luck, I’ll still have a store for everyone to come back to after all this finally blows over. It’s going to be tight, but I’m reasonably sure I can make it.

Thank you for understanding.


Yes, we’re open!


Sterling Silver Comics is open and we have new product for sale. I’m willing to ship to you if you don’t want to go out, or I can take comics out to the curb for you if you want to drive over! Contact me and I’ll work things out with you! Everyone stay safe out there!

And if you need anything special ordered for you, just let me know. Thanks, and either see you at the shop or hear from you otherwise! Be safe out there!

Sterling Silver Comics is a Bad Idea Destination Store!

Yes, yes, I know, you’ve always thought I’m full of bad ideas, but this time I’m going to be full of Bad Idea Comics! Bad Idea is a new publisher that is distributing directly to comic shops rather than through the traditional distribution methods, and only a certain number of retailers nationwide will initially be able to carry their comics! And, as you may have guessed since I’m writing about here, I’m one of them! Their first comics, Enicac by Matt Kindt and Doug Braithwaite will be shipping out May 6th, and Sterling Silver Comics will be your local location to get your mitts on it!

You can find more information at the Bad Idea website…and if you’re intrigued, just print out this handy form and press it into my hand when next at the shop…or you can just call or email me, too, that’d work!
