Here’s a few links thanks to Pegasus News that give you a list of haunted houses and Trick or Treatin’ Spots around the DFW area. Enjoy and send me photos.
Neal has got some great things planned for this Saturday, so bring the kids and get some great deals and show off that home-made Spiderman costume!
On Saturday, October 31st (Halloween, coincidentally) we’ll be having a big ole Halloween shindig here in our store! We’ve got tons of free comics, including special Halloween comics published by the major publishers, plus tons of swag, chances to win the Super Spooky prize pack, and if you show up in costume you'll get 15% off your purchas!! Pluusssss, since it's Halloween, we’ll have some trick-or-treatables!
But coolest of all, this year we’ll be having a Halloween Costume Contest in our store! Come by in costume, Halloweeners of all ages, and we’ll snap your photo and enter you into our contest! At least one winner per category will win sweet freebies, including gift certificates to the store! NOTE to parents–we will post these photos on our store’s website, so let us know if you’d prefer not to have your child’s picture included!
Don’t miss this sweet event! I’m sure Denisha and Dania will whip up some last-minute surprises for those of you who are value-minded, so there will be plenty to do for young and old!
I have to work that day, so if you go and get photos or score some great swag, send me an email or post it here bragging about it.
Cruised through PegasusNews and found these little tidbits for the upcoming weekend. Enjoy.
I forgot to mention in my earlier post that also this Saturday, the 24th, that Marty Longoria will be having a going-away party and art sale at the comic book shop.

I Will be having an Going away/Art Sale at Boomerang Comics in Lewisville this Saturday the 24th from 1-4pm, Boomerang is in The Target Shopping Center on 3040/Round Grove RD. Neal has a great store, so come by and say GoodBye or Buy some Art, I'll have some Originals and Artcards stuff starting at 8 bucks Great Deals!!!! I probably won't be able to do Commission work.
So, please stop by and say bye and buy a few things. I just had to do that.
Hope you folks got to visit Boomerang Comics today and got your chance to win tickets to ‘Star Wars in Concert’ which is happening Friday night. Also, Star Wars Fan Days is this weekend so be sure and visit. Lots of actors, celebrities, artists, etc. will be on hand so do a little sight-seeing and get those autographs. I’ll have to make it on Sunday, the wife and I will be in child-birthing classes all day Saturday. Also, on Saturday there will be a children’s costume party at the Borders in Lewisville at 2pm. Bring the little one’s for games and crafts. If anyone knows of anything else going on this weekend, feel free to post it in the comments section.

Had to shoot this out before I left for work. Boomerang Comics is giving away a pair of tickets to ‘Star Wars in Concert’. Today is the only day to try and win so head over to the shop and try your luck. I already have mine, so if you’re going let me know and maybe we can meet up before the show.
Star Wars In Concert Tickets!
Enter for a chance to win tickets tomorrow!
DATE: Wed. Oct 21, 2009
TIME: We are giving away a pair of Star Wars in Concert tickets tomorrow (Wednesday)! The show is Friday night at 7:30pm. All you have to do, to enter is come in and purchase something (which is not hard on new comic book day). These are great seats on the first level, directly in front of the stage.
At the end of the day we will draw the lucky winner.
So the new job has put a major damper on my blogging time. It’s not really the writing part that I don’t have time for, but the finding of material to write about. I completely missed the ‘Paranormal Activity’ screenings which did really well in theaters. It takes a lot of time to sift through all the blogs and websites that I track to get all the local events. I need to work on streamlining that a little.
I also have to try and keep up with my reading. I have met a few authors over the last few months and I am trying to catch up with their offerings so that I can give an honest review on them. Included with all of that is the artist page, the author page, the comic page, etc . . . that I have yet to finish.
Though I complain about not having any time for the blog, the new job does give me a lot of joy. For one thing, I work at a bookstore. How cool is that! To be around books all day long. To know when the new ones are coming out. To meet new authors, through reading their books and in person. One of the “in-persons” being local author, A. P. Stephens. Check out his new title ‘The Stolen Moon of Londor’ in stores now or listen here. I’m reading it and will give you my view in a few days. He will be at the store
Borders 2403 S. Stemmons, Suite 100
Lewisville, TX 75067
on October 23rd at 7pm. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend his signing for I will be in the 5th row of Cowboys stadium watching Anthony Daniels narrate ‘Star Wars in Concert’ that night. Hope you have your tickets.
Don’t forget that Star Wars Fan Days is that same weekend. I might get to go on Sunday, but it’ll be close. They seem to have a lot of great celebrities showing up, so hopefully things will work out.
I’d also like to send a howdy out to all the fine folks that I have met over the counter at the store and thank them for coming by and looking at the website. I have met a wannabe ghost hunter and will be putting together a post of local haunt websites and hauntings in the next few weeks, hopefully in time for Halloween.
If you didn’t get a chance to see this show in August, it will be shown again on October 8. Check here for participating theaters and don’t forget that after the show they will give codes for free swag through the RiffTrax website. I had a blast last time and will probably go again, just for the fun of it!
