Over on his Marvel blog, Tom Brevoort asks:
If you were given the power to make a single change at Marvel to make things better, what would it be? This can involve story, creators, personnel, direction, anything–but you only get one. What would it be?
Here’s mine: for one month, every issue Marvel publishes has a price tag of $1. All ages, Marvel Knights, Icon titles, the works. If you really want to make it useful, try it around October, when people can buy extra copies to give them out at Halloween.
In that vein, Challengers Comics is throwing a party this Saturday, April 4th, 2009 at 5 pm. As a way to say thank you to their customers and the city that gave them a home, Challengers is having a party complete with food and drink to celebrate the one year anniversary of the store officially opening. In addition to the party, all back issues will be $1.00. The store encourages all interested to swing by and say “hello” or simply search the back issue bins for great deals. Challengers is located at 1845 N. Western Ave #2R, Chicago IL 60647 — and they have a loyal, loyal following at that store.
