HOW DO I FIND THE COMICS I WANT?

New comics are racked alphabetically by title. Exception: superhero titles are racked by the character’s name instead of title (“Amazing Spider-Man,” for instance, is racked under “Spider-Man”). This week’s new comics have a “New!” label in front of them for easy browsing.

Graphic novels are racked as follows:

  • DC Superheroes / DC Animation / DC Vertigo
  • Marvel Superheroes / Star Wars / Coloring Books
  • Fiction & Literature — publisher subsections:
    • Dark Horse Comics
    • Image Comics
    • Boom Studios
    • Dynamite Entertainment
    • IDW Publishing
  • Fiction & Literature (all other publishers)
  • Archival Collections (collections of newspaper strips and vintage comics)
  • Art / Reference (including “How To”)
  • Manga (Japanese comics, translated into English)
  • Young Adult
  • Kids & Animation

Back issues are filed alphabetically by title (as listed in the annual Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide).

WHAT DO YOU RECOMMEND?

Every week, the Emerald City staff each has their own recommended new comic displayed on the counter just inside the store, and we feature a selection of new comics at the register counter. We also have a “Featured Books” table of some of our favorite and best-selling graphic novels. We’re always happy to help you find a comics story you might enjoy, but we will not recommend any new comics for their potential future investment value — we believe the primary value in comics is the reading experience.

WHAT IS THE EC REWARDS CARD?

Sign up for our in-store Rewards Card — we promise not to sell your information or otherwise use it for nefarious purposes! Currently, back issue comics (non-vintage), graphic novels, games, and toys count towards their own frequent-buyer programs. After you buy so many, you get a discount on the next one equal to the average you’ve spent on the previous items. For back issues and graphic novels, it’s 10 items. For games or toys, it’s 20 items. You have a full year to purchase all the items you need to complete each program. Then you have another full year to use the credit you receive for completing a program!

Read all about it on our Rewards Card page here: http://emeraldcitycomics.com/rewards-card/

DO YOU OFFER A MILITARY DISCOUNT?

Yes we do! A discount is offered to all active military, retirees, and veterans with a valid military ID or proof of military service: 10% off new comics, non-vintage back issue comics, and books & graphic novels; 5% off everything else in the store, including toys & collectibles, games, vintage comics, collecting supplies, apparel, trading cards, wall art, and snacks & drinks (excludes consignment items). Just sign up for a Rewards Card and present it with each purchase, and we will add the Military discount to your account. This discount will supersede our Rewards Programs, as it is the better savings of the two. Our system always gives you the best discount available, so when we have a sale with a larger discount, you will be upgraded to that instead of your Military discount for that purchase.

WHAT IS YOUR IN-STORE COMICS SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE?

This service holds new comic books and graphic novels for you, so you never miss a chapter of your favorite stories. Here’s how it works:
• It’s FREE. You pay only for the merchandise as you pick it up.
• Just let us know which comic book titles and graphic novels you would like, and we will hold them for you when they arrive. Please subscribe to at least three titles.
• Please pick up everything in your file at least once a month. Delinquent subscription files will be put on hold, and the books will be returned to stock.
• We will gladly try to keep you informed about upcoming comics and merchandise, but we also recommend Previews, our distributor’s monthly catalog. You can use this catalog every month to order items that are not already on your subscription file.
• If you order an item that cost $75 or more, please leave a 50% deposit. This deposit is nonrefundable unless the item is canceled by the manufacturer or distributor.
You can sign up online here!

WILL YOU BUY MY COMICS AND COLLECTIBLES? WHAT COMIC BOOKS WILL YOU BUY?

We do buy comics and collectibles that we are sold out of, and that we think we can sell.

If you have a large collection, send or bring us a list we can review. For comics, email justin@emeraldcitycomics.com; for toys & collectibles, email dave@emeraldcitycomics.com.

If you have a small box of comics or collectibles, call ahead at 727-398-2665 to make sure a buyer is available before bringing them in.

For comic books, we do buy older “vintage” comics — those that were published before 1974, as well as select “key issues” that our Guests are always in the market for.

What we would recommend is to take a close look at the publication dates on your comics. The publication date is normally printed in small print on either the inside front cover or more commonly on the bottom of the first (or sometimes last) page of the comic.

You can also check the cover price of a comic to get some idea of how old it is. Vintage comics usually have a cover price of 20 cents or less, and the oldest ones have a cover price of 10 or 12 cents.

We would be happy to take a look at any of your comics that were published before 1974 as long as they are in relatively good condition; we have a hard time selling coverless, incomplete, or very badly damaged comics.

As mentioned, we do also buy “key issues.” Email our Back Issues Merchant at justin@emeraldcitycomics.com for a list of newer Key Issues that we will usually buy. If you happen to have any of the books from this list in your collection, we would be happy to take a look at those as well.

DO YOU MAKE CHARITABLE DONATIONS?

We are always happy to donate comics for a good cause. Please contact us about a week in advance so we can prepare a donation, and bring a letterhead or receipt for our records.

    GLOOMHAVEN

    Gloomhaven is a game of Euro-inspired tactical combat in a persistent world of shifting motives. Players will take on the role of a wandering adventurer with their own special set of skills and their own reasons for traveling to this dark corner of the world. Players must work together out of necessity to clear out menacing dungeons and forgotten ruins. In the process, they will enhance their abilities with experience and loot, discover new locations to explore and plunder, and expand an ever-branching story fueled by the decisions they make.

    This is a game with a persistent and changing world that is ideally played over many game sessions. After a scenario, players will make decisions on what to do, which will determine how the story continues, kind of like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book. Playing through a scenario is a cooperative affair where players will fight against automated monsters using an innovative card system to determine the order of play and what a player does on their turn.

    Each turn, a player chooses two cards to play out of their hand. The number on the top card determines their initiative for the round. Each card also has a top and bottom power, and when it is a player’s turn in the initiative order, they determine whether to use the top power of one card and the bottom power of the other, or vice-versa. Players must be careful, though, because over time they will permanently lose cards from their hands. If they take too long to clear a dungeon, they may end up exhausted and be forced to retreat.

    CASTLES OF BURGUNDY: THE DICE GAME

    As influential sovereigns, expand your estates through trade and commerce. Combine the dice to your advantage and find the strategy that will lead you to victory.
    The famous strategy game now in pure dice game!

    A "dice version" of The Castles of Burgundy.

    The game comes with 5 dice: A timer die, 2 number dice, and 2 color dice.

    Like the board game, the idea is to fill as many things on your board, and get the most points, mostly by completing color regions.

    One player rolls the dice, and then everyone picks 2 dice to use: A color die, representing a type of hex on the board, and a number.

    A hex can only be filled on the board if it's adjacent to an already-filled hex, or your starting castle, and each type of hex has its own rules for which number can be used to fill it, and its own reward.

    When completing a region of hexes, you get points, as well as a reward that you can then cross off to activate, such as workers and monks that let you treat a number or color die as having any value, and silver that lets you use a second combination of dice on a turn.

    The timer die sets the pace of the game, and also triggers a "shipping" action, where players can cross off collected crates for points.

    There are 4 different board layouts included. Solo mode is included.

    HUNT FOR THE RING

    In Hunt for the Ring, one player takes the role of Frodo and his companions, who are journeying from the Shire to Rivendell, while up to four other players represent the Nazgûl who are trying to hunt down the hobbits. While traveling, Frodo and others must resist being corrupted by the Ring that he wears.

    Hunt for the Ring is a hidden movement game played in two chapters, with each chapter being played on a different game board. In the first chapter, the Frodo player attempts to move from the Shire to Bree, gaining corruption points if they fail to do so after sixteen turns. If the Frodo player succeeds, they can either record their exit point (and other game details) to play the second chapter at a later time, or they can continue immediately, with the second chapter having the Frodo player move from Bree to Rivendell. In this chapter, the Frodo player doesn't control the hobbits directly, but instead draws cards from a journey deck, with each card showing one of many paths to Rivendell.

Or you can join us for Open Play of the featured game, or any of our gaming demos during that time!

    NO ONE gets you into the game like Emerald City Comics!!!

    The featured game for this session is... UNFAIR

    Build the city’s greatest theme park, whatever it takes!

    Mix your favourite themes, from Pirate, Robot, Vampire, Jungle, Ninja, and Gangster. Build attractions and upgrade them to match blueprints, stack up towering rides, or simply make the most cash.

    But watch out - your competitors may pay off the safety inspectors to close your rides or hire hooligans to vandalise your park! How will you get revenge?

    Whatever happens, it’s bound to be Unfair.

    Over the course of 8 rounds, you play Event cards to help yourself and hinder your opponents, build Attractions and Upgrades using Park cards, and match your park to Blueprints.

    You might hire staff to help you, or build a Super Attraction with a unique ability. Bribing officials and blackmailing politicians is also possible, but entirely

    STAR WARS DESTINY: LEGACIES

    Expand your Star Wars: Destiny collection with Legacies, a new set of booster packs for the collectible dice and card game!

    Legacies continues the evolution of Star Wars: Destiny, expanding on classic archetypes while introducing new mechanisms, including a new die symbol and a new card type. As a new Base Set, Legacies is a solid starting point for Destiny newcomers while introducing innovative new concepts that challenge classic gameplay and tactics.

    TOPIARY

    In Topiary, players try to position their visitors on the outer edge of a beautiful topiary garden in order to give them the best view possible. Visitors can see the closest topiary sculpture to them and any behind that, in the same sight line, that are larger. You can score bonus points for visitors who see multiple topiary sculptures of the same type. Players slowly fill in the garden by adding tiles until everyone has placed all their visitors.

    DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS: DUNGEON TILES REINCARNATED

    VALERIAN: ALPHA MISSIONS

    Valerian: The Alpha Missions gives fans of tabletop gaming and the Valerian franchise the opportunity to discover Alpha, a vast metropolis in which species from across the universe gather over centuries to share knowledge, intelligence, and cultures. After assembling a team of agents, players must cooperate to explore a contested zone of Alpha, race to complete objectives while battling and evading enemies. Complete the missions and get to the extraction site in time to win!

    The game board consists of randomly placed tiles that are revealed as agents move around the map, creating a unique experience each game. Players will never know who or what they might encounter – enemies could attack or players may discover valuable resources to power their mission gear. Each player must decide whether to split up and accomplish their objectives faster or sacrifice valuable resources to save their teammates. As the clock runs down and enemies gain ground, only the most skilled team of agents will complete their missions to return as heroes.

    One story spanning eight timelines - told by Europe’s mightiest comics creators (examples from the original French editions)

    Infinity 8 #1 (pages 378-379) - The deep-space cruise ship "Infinity 8" encounters a field of debris of unknown origin, and eight of the ship's top security agents are sent to investigate in eight separate parallel time-loops. But secrets lie within the inter-species population on the ship, some of whom may know more than they lead on. The debut of a far-out, pulpy, sci-fi series of parallel adventures in the tongue-in-cheek tradition of the original Heavy Metal, but for a new generation (Newsarama).
