Alright , I've been keeping this under my hat (what hat?) for almost a week now, blabbing it to a select few...but Scott Riley just gave me the official okay to freakin' tell everybody!!!

Main Street Comics And Games is opening a new storefront!

Scott Riley, owner of the store and a guy I consider myself fortunate to know, to call a friend, and to have worked along side for over a year is opening a MUCH LARGER store!!!!

Scott is moving the store to 2125 East Main Street....actually in the same exact shopping center but around the corner actually facing Main Street now...in between the Family Dollar and the Sav-A-Lot stores. This is the same store front Scott wanted from day one but just couldn't afford until here just recently. This is also the same store front he and I used to "fantasize" about somehow getting.

Well the dream has come true! The store is easily three times bigger than the old store...perhaps even more than that....allowing Scott a lot more room to display everything in the entire store as well as host guests much better and accomidate the ever growing Hero Clix and Magic gaming tournaments.

The old store at 2031 E.Main Street will close it's doors Monday May 2nd and Scott and crew will be open at the new store the next day but working around the moving process.

The "Grand Re-Opening" will be Saturday May 7th.....FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!!!!!!!

The perfect day to re-open a comic store!!!

And on hand helping Scott celebrate the occasion

DUSTIN CARSON!!!!
MIKE WATSON!!!!!!
STUDIO AKUMAKAZE!!!!
TWILIGHT STAR STUDIOS!!!!!

Yes! This new store does have THAT MUCH SPACE!!!!!!

Twilight Star will be passing out FREE copies of Brit and Ivy Collected Edition and Twilight Star Annual #1 and I'm sure these other guys will have something cool on hand as well.

A special event involving Mike Watson!

Magic Tournament!

A bunch of comic book geeks heading to the theatre later to catch THOR.....

ALL THE SAME DAY.

Saturday
May 7th!

Congrads to Scott and crew on continuing to shatter all the comic store bad karma in "The Field"!!!!!

Feel free to contact Scott for more info at 937-324-2400 or riles@mainstcomicsandgames.com

We can make room for one more creator. Want to make the first road trip to the shop for this event?

Wow! Absolutely!!! I may have to work, but maybe I can hash something out with my employer. Just being there would be motivation enough, but it would be an be honor to share the stage with Dustin, Mike, Akumakaze, and Twilight Star! Can I get back to you on it Monday night?

By all means...but it would have to be by e-mail. That Raynor guy and I will have the phone line tied up for a while Monday night.

Hope to see you there.
