Marysville Shop Closing

Dear Friends:

Due to the record gas prices and a sharp decline in economic growth and shutdown of serval Honda facilities, it is with great remorse that I will be closing my Marysville store and the last day of business there will be July 31.

Please note that the Hilliard store is still very very strong and continues to grow, so rest assured that I plan on being in business for the long haul. Getting through the rough economic times will ensure the future success of expansion as I do plan on returning to Marysville.

In addition, I am in the process of revamping the website for even more convienent online ordering from so please check it out soon.

I want to thank you for your support and I look forward to continuing my serivece to you in the future.



PS -
With gas prices at an all time high and slow econmic growth, we are sad to announce that our Marysville store will be closing July 31. And since we hate packing...from now until we close, take 40% off all items in stock (excluding trade paperbacks, new comics shipping this week and next). All comics on the wall other than new issues will only be $1.00! THIS SALE IS IN MARYSVILLE ONLY

Free Comic Book Day


The first Saturday in May represents a holiday for comic fans across the world know as Free Comic Book Day, where participating comic store retailers distribute free comics to anyone with no strings attached. A day where anyone can read about and dream of becoming superheroes, introducing millions to the unique art form and storytelling method that has delighted and inspired millions more.

This year however, Free Comic Book Day has a new meaning in the eyes of the local comic stores in Columbus, as they will all be honoring a very special local hero. On April 10, 2008 Diane Sharp, a crossing guard at Scioto Darby Elementary school in Hilliard, was killed saving the life of Christian Engle, a second grader. Sharp was very heroic and tried to protect the child with her own body and in the end, sacrificed her life to save another.

Jamie Colegrove, owner of Packrat Comics located near Scioto Darby Creek Elementary, said “It truly was amazing how quickly Diane reacted to protect Christian we wanted to honor her sacrifice and heroism.” Colegrove continued “Free Comic Book Day seemed like an excellent opportunity to acknowledge her as our own superhero.”

All comic retailers in the community whole heartedly agreed. Each of the participating stores in Columbus will be accepting donations on behalf of the Sharp and Engle families for both the Key Bank and Fifth Third Funds recently established. In addition, many of the stores will be contributing and offering other opportunities for all patrons to enjoy.

So on Saturday, May 3rd, stop by your local comic shop, get a free comic and support this true superhero and those she left behind.
