Starting today, we are having a special two-week only sale here at Cosmic Comix! We are calling it the Tweener Mini-Sale because it falls in between our last big sale (action figures) and the big December Sale.
The deal is, Prestige Format comics (the oversized spined comics that normally run $5 or $6 each) will be $2.00 each or 3 for $5.00. Plenty to choose from including Batman, Wolverine, Punisher, JLA and various Elseworlds titles. There are also a few magazines, trade paperbacks and action figures. Whatever you can find on the two tables located in the front and rear of the store will be $2.00 each or 3 for $5.00, but only for two weeks!
