UPCOMING STORE/WEB EVENTS + MAGIC & HEROCLIX SCHEDULES!


THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE KING OF COMICS

Jack 'the King' Kirby
is the undisputed KING of comics and
Friday Aug 28th would have been his 98th birthday!

Jack's youngest granddaughter, 17 year old Jillian Kirby is getting  comic stores involved with remembering the Kings legacy and raise some funds for the HERO INITIATIVE at the same time!

Graham Crackers Comics is happy to participate and will
contribute 25% of all KIRBY sales on FRIDAY Aug. 28th towards the HERO INITIATIVE - both in store and on-line.

Buy any JACK KIRBY back issue/trade of Captain America, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Kamandi, Jimmy Olsen, Black Panther, Super Powers, Avengers, New Gods, Mister Miracle, Hulk, Forever People, Omac, the Demon, the Losers, Devil Dinosaur, Machine Man, heck what didn't the man help create or work on?

More than any other creator in the history of comics, we all owe a great debt to King Kirby without whom the industry would most likely no longer even exist.
