THIS WEEK AT FUNNYBOOKS...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR REALZ!
Yesterday — on June 20th — we celebrated our actual 25th BIRTHDAY, and are now officially 25 years young! I guess time flies when you’re having FUNNYBOOKS! Thank you to EVERYONE who has been a part of this AMAZING run!
BIRTHDAY BASH THANK YOU!
Thank you also to everyone who joined us at the FUNNYBOOKS 25th BIRTHDAY BASH, this past Saturday. Both FUNNYBOOKS and the FUNCAVE were packed all-day-long, and we really appreciate the strong turn-out. Everyone displayed great patience as they waited to meet superstar comic book creator, Amanda Conner. We apologize if anyone could not stick around long enough to get an autograph. Other than the longer-than-anticipated wait to meet Amanda, everything else seemed to go as planned. Thank you to the FUNNYBOOKS BIRTHDAY BASH CREW (see attached photo) who all did a SPECTACULAR job! If you have any photos from the BIG BASH, please share them with us, and we look forward to hearing some BIRTHDAY BASH feedback during today’s 12-HOUR NEW COMIC DAY. Speaking of which...
NO POST BIRTHDAY BASH LET-DOWN THANKS TO EPIC NEW COMIC DAY!
Thanks to a WHOPPER of a NEW COMIC DAY, the Comic Book Party that is FUNNYBOOKS rolls-on today, as all kinds of Amazing Comics & Stuff hit our shelves, including FIVE extra-sized 25th issues from DC — AQUAMAN #25, BATMAN #25, GREEN ARROW #25, GREEN LANTERNS #25, and SUPERMAN #25 —which are specially timed to coincide with FUNNYBOOKS’ 25th BIRTHDAY!

THE FUNCAVE SHORT BOX DEAL IS BACK!
With only one week left for FUNCAVE FUN, it’s time to kick things into high gear with the return of the FUNCAVE SHORT BOX DEAL. Beginning today, you can purchase a short comic box for $55, and then you can head over to the FUNCAVE and FILL IT with all the Comics & Stuff you can fit into it (The lid must fit securely, and no doubles are allowed). Make sure to allow yourself some extra time as this can take a while! If you don't have time to Fill a short box, we still have all the other FUNCAVE DEALS in place (including 50¢ comics). The FUNCAVE will be open from 12noon-8pm today, on-demand tomorrow, and this Saturday from 11am-around 4pm. Stop by and fill 'er up!
TRY THE VR! IT’S DELICIOUS!
Besides the TEN THOUSAND BARGAIN COMICS and other great deals that can be found at the FUNCAVE (for just one more week!), our friends at POP-UP GAMING are running some really amazing Virtual Reality games out of the back rooms of the cave. In particular we’ve heard great things about the STAR WARS game and the ZOMBIE GAME (which has some great jump scares), and there’s also POP-UP GAMING’s own 4-player “Escape the room” game. The VR will be running today, and tonight, during our Wednesday FUNCAVE hours, so stop by and experience the future of gaming, before the FUNCAVE closes next Thursday!
That's all for now! We hope to see you at FUNNYBOOKS as we kick-off our 26th year of Comics & Stuff! - Funny Steve
