Charlotte ComiCon This SUNDAY!

I probably should have blogged about this awhile back instead of waiting two days before the show. Anyway, the venerable Charlotte ComiCon is back for its first of three 2011 shows (the other two are on July 31st and December 18th) at the Charlotte Crown Plaza Hotel in uptown Charlotte, NC. Show hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Charlotte ComiCon is one of the very best one-day shows in the Southeast U.S.A. and do in no small part to the tireless efforts of Dave Hinson and Rick Fortenberry to grow the show over years.

Anyway, ol' Walkin' Willie will be there and will be BLOWING OUT trade paperbacks and graphic novels....and not the crap stuff either - we are talking main stream stuff and not the Diamond Comic blowout junk. Willie is gettin' out of the trade business to concentrate on a super secret website AND much older books. Just too much grunt labor and low margins to stay in the business - the subject of another forthcoming blog article...but I digress.

Well...the winner in this situation is YOU, the comic book fan, as Willie is discounting ALL of his merchandise to 60% OFF Retail....and "Retail" is not some made up number but the actual retail price that is normally located near the barcode on the back of trades and hardcovers. Yep, 60% OFF is what the normal shmuck customer... on the street will get but for any of you clever types that are reading this can clip the coupon below and get 70% OFF RETAIL for any size purchase. Whether you buy one book or 20, you get 70% OFF RETAIL! That means a $20 trade is a measly SIX BUCKS!!!!

So print the coupon below, get lots o' cash out of the ATM (because we ain't takin' cards on this type of deal) and go tear Willie a new one! Limit one coupon per customer - but remember, good for ANY size purchase and ONLY at Charlotte ComiCon.
