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!)
