---- The amount we will have available of each book will be based on popularity. Example: Marvel and DC books will have a substantial more available than "The Smurfs". We also do not order every book available due to some being very obscure or cause we don't carry the book normally. If there is a book(s) that you wanted and we aren't getting, let us know and we will try to special order it.

Feel free to share this event and invite anyone. If there are any questions feel free to message us on the Comic World & Games facebook page.
