I’m celebrating Thanksgiving in Omaha, and tomorrow, my 27-year-old nephew and myself will be visiting as many comics shops in the Greater Omaha area. (I have dubbed this “Le Tour de Bande Dessinée” and encourage others to do the same. I did my first Tour on the second Free Comic Book Day, when I visited every comics shop in Manhattan.)
So, I printed out my Google Maps, and noted a few stores which had closed in the past few years. (Capes Lounge, you are missed.) Texting my nephew, he asked me if Krypton Comics was offering a Black Friday sale. Not surprisingly, Dean Phillips and company will open early at 8 AM and offer 40% off everything in the store, as well as specific items heavily discounted.
So, this got me wondering… what other comics shops out there are offering specials tomorrow on Black Friday? If you’re a retailer, comment below! If you’re a customer, give a shout-out to your favorite store!
