Royal Collectibles will be hosting its fourth midnight release opening for Detective Comics #1000.

We’re very excited to announce that our next midnight release will be on Tuesday, March 26th in support of DC Comics’ Detective Comics #1000. Royal Collectibles will be re-opening at 11:45 pm on Tuesday, March 26th and we will be selling all main 12 covers being offered. The covers will be available while supplies last.

Detective Comics #1000

We’ve previously held midnight releases for DC Comics’ Doomsday Clock issue 1, Action Comics #1000, and Batman #50. To mark this special landmark occasion, the first 50 people to arrive will get a free Detective Comics #27 magnet. There will also be light refreshments for all those that attend.

So, be sure to mark the midnight release for Detective Comics #1000 on your bat-calendars, bat-phones, or wherever it may be that you take your notes and we’ll see you soon at the same bat-comic shop, same bat-time.

Captain Marvel Day

Captain Marvel Day!


Royal Collectibles to celebrate “Captain Marvel Day” on Saturday, March 16th!

This month looks to be quite the Marvel-ous one for us at Royal and all of our loyal customers. One of the biggest movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is opening, Captain Marvel, and we’ll be celebrating it by giving Carol Danvers the Royal treatment – a Captain Marvel Day! On Saturday, March 16th, get ready to go higher, further, faster!

Captain Marvel Day

Following the release of Captain Marvel on International Women’s Day, Royal Collectibles will be hosting Captain Marvel Day, the weekend after, which is promising to be one of our most fun events yet! We’re very excited to announce that we’ve collaborated with artist Keyla Valerio on an exclusive Captain Marvel print ($20) that will only be available at Royal. Keyla Valerio will also be here at the shop, signing prints from 1 to 4 pm. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to GIRLS, INC. We’re equally excited about GIRLS, INC. as they are a nonprofit organization that inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold through direct service and advocacy.

From 1 to 4 pm, Captain Marvel will be appearing at the shop. Professional cosplayer Samantha Leigh Catalano could be found on Instagram @samanthas_cosplay and, as you could see, she totally rocks as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel. As always, please be respectful and no one wants to see Captain Marvel tap into her binary powers, except when facing skrulls.

While we are celebrating Women’s History all month long at Royal Collectibles, we will be offering 20% off on any female character in Funko Pop, action figure, graphic novel, or statue form on Captain Marvel Day – Saturday. March 16th from store hours of 10 to 8 pm. So if you’re looking to catch up on Carol Danvers’ comic book adventures and maybe you even want to pick up a pop of Goose the Cat (she’s female), you get 20% off. Or maybe you just want to check out Mariko Tamaki’s masterful run on She-Hulk, that’s 20% off, as well. That’s what we’d call Marvel-ous and Sensational!

We hope to see you all on Captain Marvel Day (Saturday, March 16th) as it will certainly be a lot of fun.

Be sure to check out the “Upcoming Events” section for the latest on what’s happening this month at Royal Collectibles and be sure to follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.


LCSD Limited Items and Donation Information

The selection of this year’s Local Comic Shop Day exclusive items has been severely allocated. Most shops, including ours, received only a tiny portion of the items ordered for the event. There are 3 books in particular that were allocated down to only 1 or 2 copies:

Marvel Knights #1 Exclusive Variant: 2 copies

Green Lantern #1 Foil Variant: 1 copy

Blackbird #1 Foil Variant: 1 copy

Since we have received many requests for these items, we feel the best way to handle these limited items will be to have 3 separate silent auctions. We will have a sign up sheet posted next to each of these items on Saturday. If you’d like to bid on the item, you would write your name, phone number, and how much you would like to bid on the auction sheet. Then others may join in and bid higher in increments of $1.00.

The final bids will be taken at 7:45pm on Saturday November 17th. Since we have 2 copies of Marvel Knights #1, we will take the top two highest bidders.

50% of all proceeds for the silent auctions will be submitted as an online donation to the Wounded Warrior Project.

The other exclusive items are not as limited as the above ones and will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. For the full list of items, please check here: http://localcomicshopday.com/unique-items/

 

**ALSO** we have made an arrangement with Jamaica Hospital in Queens to donate some kid-friendly comic books for the children’s ward. If you have any kid-appropriate comics you’d like to donate, please feel free to bring them by this weekend and we will include them in our donation!

***LCSD UPDATE***

We’ve got some last minute talent added to our Local Comic Shop Day festivities this weekend!!

In addition to local artist, Tom Velez, appearing from 2-7pm taking commissions and selling art, we will also have the following two appearances this weekend: Keith Williams on Saturday and Bob McCleod on Sunday!
