It was no secret that May was super busy with the convergence of Free Comic Book Day and the North Florida Comic Con. It was great to see those that we did, and we hope you had as much fun as we did. We wanted to take a moment to say hello, let you know what is going on at the shop, and point out a few of the interesting items in the latest PREVIEWS catalog. As always, be sure to make it all the way to the bottom for a fun little give back from the store to you.

GOT A REPORT CARD? WANT A GIFT CARD?
Altered Egos Comics & Games believe in scholastic achievement, and we want to do our part to encourage our community of learners. Our program is simple: show us your report card and we will give you a store gift card.
Many educators believe there is a valuable power to self-selected activities, especially self-selected reading, such as:
Doesn't matter how old the student is, elementary to graduate school, if they are getting grades, we want to see them, give them a Gift Card for there effort. And, congrats to Stephanie, the first to take advantage of our program. Check out her tweet here.
DC Comics is bringing another wave of its very popular Bombshells in all forms, including variant covers for August. There will be 21 variants to popular titles featuring Bombshell-inspired images.

The following items are listed in this month's PREVIEWS catalog but might be overlooked. We wanted to make sure you knew about them. If you see something you like, just let us know before June 24th!
AGE OF ULTRON HULKBUSTER 6IN BOBBLEHEAD
There are a whole series of bobbleheads coming to celebrate the Avengers: Age Of Ultron film, but Jonathan's favorite by far is the Hulkbuster Iron Man.
He is sorry.
TWO BROTHERS HARDCOVER
Josh is too excited for this one! The same Eisner winning fraternal team of Gabriel Bá and Fábio Moon that brought you Daytripper are back. Two Brothers is strangely enough about twin brothers, family secrets, identity, love, loss, deception, and the dissolution of blood ties.
DC COMICS BLACK CANARY BISHOUJO STATUE
The Bombshell line of statues might be getting all the attention, but Black Canary fans aren't going to want to miss this Kotobukiya Bishoujo version.
DC COMICS COVER GIRLS CATWOMAN STATUE
Carey has recently dipped into collecting statues, and this one is noteworthy because it isn't Poison Ivy. Normally it would be limited to 5,200 numbered editions, but Carey is guaranteeing that you will only have 5,199 available to you.
HE-MAN & MASTERS OF UNIVERSE HC MINICOMIC COLLECTION
When He-Man was first introduced, the toys came with mini-comics, written and drawn by then unknown people like Tim Seeley, Robert Kirkman, Mark Texeira, and Bruce Timm. This collection includes all of the Masters of the Universe and Princess of Power mini-comics from the eighties and nineties.
MULTIVERSITY DELUXE HARDCOVER
For those of you that were waiting for Grant Morrison's Multiversity to be done and over and collected in a nice hardcover edition, the wait is over!
NEVER MISS AN ISSUE!
To ensure that you don't miss any of your favorite titles, Altered Egos Comics & Games has a pull list service. You tell us what titles, teams, or characters that you are interested in following, and we make sure that they are set aside for you. New items arrive in the store each Wednesday, and all we ask is that you make arrangements to buy your requested items at least once a month. Can't make it to the store? We can invoice and ship your books to you.
Besides the benefit of no longer having to worry about your favorite book selling out before you get to the shop, subscribers can also enjoy our Empty Box Discount. At any time that your pull box is empty (you cleaned it out or nothing came in yet from the last time you cleaned it out), you can buy trade paperbacks, graphic novels, and collections at 15% off and buy backstock at 50% off!
Adding and removing titles to your list is easy, just tell us what you want. You can start a subscription with as little as a single comic. So stop going from store to store to get that sold out title you missed. Start a pull list with Altered Egos Comics today, come in to the store, or email Josh or Jonathan or directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Phrase That Pays...
You want the phrase that pays? All you have to do is sign up for our newsletter! We mail it out at the beginning of the month to highlight the latest books and goodies in the catalog. And to help you out, we include a code that is good for your purchases all month. It is that simple.
