 >>  MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND SALE
       ... BIG, BIG SAVINGS!
________________________________________________________________
That's right, we're having another of our big holiday sales!
This SATURDAY, SUNDAY, and MONDAY (MAY 25-27), we're offering 
the following discounts:
     - 50% off ALL IN-STORE BACK ISSUES
          (including our famous $1.00 comics!)
     - 20% off almost EVERYTHING ELSE in the store!
          (Well, O.K., it really *is* everything else!
          No "almost" to it -- except that we're not paying
          our employees 20% less ... .)
As usual, sale prices do not apply to items listed on the web
site or up for auction at eBay.  If an item is marked "MAX
DISC" or "NO DISC," the sale does not apply.  Items in the
convention display case are not on sale.  (Those few items
will be clearly marked.  So if you don't see a sticker or
sign on it -- YES, IT'S ON SALE!)
For complete details, visit http://www.heroesanddragons.com
or http://www.heroesanddragons.com/ComingEvents/MemorialDaySale.htm.

 >>  MORE STOLEN COMICS, THIS TIME IN ILLINOIS
________________________________________________________________
A couple of weeks ago, I asked you to be on the look-out for 
comics stolen from the New York City store Action Comics.
Now we have another instance of comics being stolen from a
store, this time from Books & Comics of Lansing, Illinois.
Among the stolen books were AMAZING FANTASY #15 and two copies
of INCREDIBLE HULK #182.  (One of the HULK #182s was missing
page 23 from the interior.)
