Thank you for you generosity...

We'd like to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who came out yesterday in support of the food drive we hosted yesterday. We filled 6 large boxes full with canned goods and other non-perishable food items that will be headed out to the Mid-Ohio Food Bank later this week. Thanks to Uko and M.a.d., Zone Troopers and Sean Fornery for thier time and sharing their art work with us. A speical thanks goes out to Matt & James for teaching all the kids how to play D&D and Heroclix during our demos. I'm sure we've begun to create several future gamers from the fun they all had Saturday. Also, thanks goes out to Donna and Chris for bringing in food for our after hours party and Chris W. for the Guitar Hero fun had by all (even though nobody wanted to play against him due to his skill.)

Again, thanks for all of your generousity, you have made hungry people happy, artists egos inflated and shop keepers satisfied with another wonderful party where fun was had by all.

And if you didn't get your free comics or superhero buttons, stop by Chick-fill-a on Monday, Oct. 29 when we will be there during the school spirit night spreading the joy of collecting and reading comics.

Marysville Store Now Open

The permits with the city have been approved, vendor's license has been posted and comics are on the wall. Packrat Comics at 109 E. Fifth Street in Marysville will be officially open for business on October 17 at 1pm. The normal hours will be from 11am-7pm Monday-Saturday and 12-5pm on Sundays. On Wednesday we will be opening at 1pm as the new comics will be sorted at the Hilliard location until further notice.

It just so happens that the 17th is Bobby's birthday so he has already claimed ownership to this store once we retire or should some horrific accident befalls both Jamie and I. So be nice to the 12 year old.

Hope to see you all there soon!

Come Game with Us

Come Game with Us

Established in 1993, Packrat Comics is a full service comic book shop on the Northwest of Columbus, in Hilliard, Ohio. As we've continued to grow our core product line of comics, toys, graphic novels and other pop culture related merchandise, we've realized there is a need for a family friendly gaming environment in Columbus. To that end, we are pleased to announce that effective October 1, 2007 we will be expanding our selection to include role playing games, from Warhammer to D&D and Heroclix to Magic the Gathering and more. The full line of games should be in stock just in time for our Free Comic Book Day Halloween Style scheduled for October 27 where we will be trading comics for canned goods. With the holiday season upon us we are working to help stock the local food pantry by collecting canned goods, the donation is not mandatory, but is appreciated. During the October 27 FCBD event we will be hosting a costume contest, gaming & demos (game entry fees will also be canned goods) along with a huge sale on comics, toys and statues. So mark your calendar for October 27 and come game with us!

Would you like to see a certain game demo or tournament, just let us know. The final schedule of events will be up by October 20, so get your requests in early.

In the mean time, join us September 22 from 10am to 8pm, for our TEN HOUR TENT SALE with action figures, statues and games up to 50% off and comics starting at $1.00 each. For additional information on this event and other fun stuff, check us out on line at
Packrat Comics, helping you let your inner geek run wild!!!
