“ComicsPRO is thrilled that Marvel Comics is offering an exclusive printing of Dr. Strange: The Oath hardcover to Local Comic Shop Day® participating retailers,” said Peter Dolan, President of ComicsPRO’s board of directors. “We’re strongly encouraging retailers to register now. If you don’t register your store by August 19th, you’ll miss out on getting this item.”

Local Comic Shop Day® 2016 date announced!

Local Comic Shop Day® will be held on November 19, 2016 this year.

For 2016, the date has been changed to the Saturday before Small Business Saturday. “We polled participating retailers if they preferred to have Local Comic Shop Day® on November 19th or November 26th,” said ComicsPRO President Peter Dolan (Main Street Comics, Middletown NY). “By a margin of 73% to 27%, our retailers wanted to change the date to the earlier Saturday so it would have a distinct identity separate from Small Business Saturday.”

Local Comic Shop Day® is the only Comic Book Industry event created and run by retailers for retailers. “Last year nearly 400 storefronts participated in Local Comic Shop Day®,” said ComicsPRO Executive Director Marco Davanzo (Alakazam Comics, Irvine CA). “Each and every one of these retailers has a voice in how we grow the day – that’s why we polled them and will continue to ask their opinions as we go forward.”
