Free Comic Book Day - Saturday 5 May (+ Sunday 6 May; see below) 2018

Posted on 27 April 10:04 (over 1 year ago)

Unsurprisingly, Copacetic will celebrate Free Comic Book Day differently.  First off, it will be Free Comic Book Weekend at Copacetic, continuing on through Sunday 6 May.  However, fair warning:  We only ordered seventeen different FCBD titles – out of the fifty-some offered – and, more to the point, we ordered such modest quantities that the supply on those titles will be exhausted fairly quickly –  only two are sure to last through the weekend: Street Angel's Dog by Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca and the Fantagraphics World's Greatest Cartoonists (featuring a wrapround cover by Sophie Goldstein).  BUT, here at Copacetic, in addition to this year's FCBD titles, we will have a decent selection on hand from FCBDs past.  Who knows what might be in there!  PLUS, we'll be having comic-centric sales and specials throughout the weekend – some of which are noted below the FCBD comics (keep scrolling, this is a long post!).







All the brand new graphic novels, comics collections, scholarly works, etc. from Fantagraphics pictured below  – as well as those from PictureBox and more – will be ON SALE for a mere $5 on Free Comic Book Day Weekend! Take a look.  Needless to say (but, of course, we'll say it anyway):  limited supplies available, come early for best selection.

More FCBD Specials to come!  Stay Tuned for further details... like:

Street Angel Mega-Pack Pre-Order Super-Special

The first week in May brings a big FOUR Street Angel publications by Jim Rugg & Brian Maruca - including the Copacetic exclusive Vol.2#1 Lineart Draft Edition. We’re selling all four together as a single package – at a great price ($22.75, if you must know) – in the shop on FCBD only (but also available on the site as a Pre-Order Special, which ends on FCBD).  Get a look and learn more, HERE.

AND… ALL back issues (including $5 Packs and $1 comics) will be 25% OFF!  FCBW only!!!

John Porcellino at Copacetic - Friday 13 April 2018!

Posted on 18 March 19:03 (almost 2 years ago)

We are pleased to announce that small press comics pioneer, John Porcellino will return to Copacetic on Friday 13 April 2018, from 6pm to 8pm, as part of his tour to promote his latest D & Q release, From Lone Mountain.  

Things will start off downstairs at 6pm at the newly remodeled Kaibur Coffee, with a comics reading, and then move upstairs to the Copacetic Realm at 7pm, for an hour (or more!) of comics and conversation , with John P. at the center. And, of course, copies of From Lone Mountain – along with all the rest of Porcellino's in-print publications – will be on sale, and can be signed by the author.

Mark it on your calendar!

The shop is CLOSED today, Monday, January 15 in observation the holiday.  

This article – which is filled with links – reminds us that MLK was a preeminent proponent of resisting, fighting the power and loudly proclaiming that black lives matter, and that we can best honor his memory by doing the same.
