Super Team @ Kings Comics Annual Sale 2014!

We woke up nice and early yesterday to travel into to Kings Comics – for it was the start of their Annual Sale!

This means 50% off all back issues and Variant Covers, $10 for standard paperback manga, and 20% off everything else (including tpbs, statues, omnibuses, and more!)

We wanted to get the low-down on what everyone was buying, so I’ve decided to pop down and interview some of the customers – and get some of my own loot, too. The Kings Sale is still on for the rest of the weekend, so if you need to get that early Christmas shopping done, or just wanna treat yourself, make sure you head on down soon!
