FOUNDER'S DAY SALE
Aug. 20, 2014

FOUNDER'S DAY each month is the one day we set aside to celebrate two momentous events. The first being Dietz & Geoff (our founders) the folks who established the Chicago South Side's very first comic book store in 1975: the "Comicbook Emporium" at 10937 South Western Avenue. They hired Comicbookman to manage the store on February 20th, 1978. The Second is August 20th, 1994, the day Comicbookman opened Alternate Reality.

In honor these pioneering efforts we have a ONE DAY ONLY SALE ON THE 20TH OF EVERY MONTH!

Free Comic Book Day Sale
May 4, 2013

OUR BIGGEST SINGLE COMIC SALE OF THE YEAR!

After Christmas, the "Happiest Day of the Year" for comic fans is FREE COMICBOOK DAY! Unlike Christmas we're OPEN all day long on FCBD and the Alternate Reality "FCBD" DAY Sale features some of the biggest sales and events of the year!

As the name implies, Free Comic Book Day is a one day event when participating comic book specialty shops (like us) across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes into their shops. The first FCBD was in 2002 and this will be our 12th!
