The future…

Hi,
It’s been quite the year so far hasn’t it?

Here’s an update of what is happening going forward. Please remember, things are changing quickly, some of this will change with little notice.

1. We are Open. We made a mistake earlier announcing we were closing, we are still open. Of course, that can change quickly, so stay tuned.

2. We are still receiving new stock. As we’ve mentioned before, we deal with many different distributors for our graphic novels and manga. Most of those supplies are continuing going forward.

3. Traditional floppy comics finish this week. Diamond Comics Distribution have made the difficult decision that shipment arriving Friday 27th of March 2020 of traditional pamphlet comics will be the last for now. This will affect all US pamphlet comics, and some of the graphic novels. This also means any restocks or backorders coming through this supplier will now not be available. When and if this changes we will let you know.

FAQs

Is Impact Comics Closing?
No. See point 1.

Does this mean you’ll have no new stock?
No. See point 2. Any product that is still in print and being distributed, we’ll do our best to find a supplier if we don’t already have one. and we’ll have it in store and we are trying to get as much of it as possible on our website too.

What happens to my standing order?
If you have comics waiting for you, they are still here. If there are comics in the shipment arriving 27th of March, they will be held for you. We won’t cancel anyone’s standing orders for late pick-up at this stage, but please note, prices do increase on 1st of April 2020, so please collect your comics before then to get the best prices. If we are forced to close the shop, there might end up being a postage cost to get your comics sent out.

What about automatic mail order customers?
If you are a mail order customer, the next delivery will be the last until further notice. It will be charged at the current pricing.

What about orders for graphic novels or manga?
As stated above, we have lots of different suppliers for a lot of these items. We’ll keep stocking them and filling orders as long as they are made available to us.

What about other fun stuff like Pops and statues?
We source most of those from other suppliers who are currently still trading, so they will still be available to us and you also.

We are still working everything out, please let us know if you have any questions, and we’ll do our best to get back to you.

Our opening times are shorter, check the box on our front page for the latest updates to our opening times.

Come in and see us (but please mantain appropriate personal distance. Or call us on 0262487335 or email us at info@impactcomics.com.au


Hey, one more thing, this last couple of weeks has proved to us that we have the most amazing customers anyone could ask for. Thanks for being awesome, let’s evolve the comics market into something amazing and share it with the next generation.

COMICARE SHORT COMIC BOX

Comic Price Changes in April


EDIT: Due to the suspension of new single issue comics, we’ve decided to delay the price changes for single issue comics. When new comics are available again, we’ll re-examine prices. In the meantime, any comics still in stock will be available at the March prices


Hi there gang!
What a crazy time we are in!
As you may have seen, the Australian dollar took a massive dive in value this week.
As a result, we’ve been forced to increase new comics prices for the first time in almost five years.

New Comics Prices from 1st of April

This price increase will come into effect on the 1st of April 2020 and will affect all new and recent single issues including comics that are being held, but are unpaid for. So, please collect all of your standing orders by 31st of March to get the cheapest prices.

Don’t miss out

Something else to consider, we will not be ordering many comics for the shelf. In many cases we will ONLY order for customers.
We don’t want to get stuck with back issues right now (our landlord won’t accept them as payment – we checked.)

So if you want to get a comic, let us know you are committed to it at least a month before it is due, or you will likely miss out.

If you don’t have a standing order, you’ll need one HERE>>
Check out the PREVIEWS CATALOG to stay ahead of upcoming releases.

What about manga and graphic novels?

We get lots of our graphic novels and manga volumes from a range of suppliers, so the prices on some of those will change similar to this, others might not change much depending on the actions of suppliers.

What about mail orders?

If you have an automatic mail order that contains books released before 1st of March, they will be billed at the old pricing. For this reason, your April mail order might contain two sets of prices.

Questions?

If you’ve got any questions, please let us know. This is happening pretty fast, so we might need to work out the answer and get back to you.

Covid-19 Coronavirus Update

A quick note to keep you updated on how covid-19 is affecting operations at Impact Comics.

We are open our regular hours.

Mon-Thu 9-6
Fri 9-9
Sat 9-5
Sun 10-5

We’ve got new stock

We are still getting regular deliveries of new stock daily, plus our weekly major comics shipments. If you are after something upcoming, be sure to get your orders in.

We’re Fresh As

We were already observing best practice regarding regular cleaning, sanitizing, and handwashing, but we’ve made an effort to pay extra attention to that.

Let’s all do our bit.

We can help each other out to keep getting comics while minimising social contact.

Come comics shopping alone.

Many of our customers like to hang out alone anyway. Honestly, who needs someone distracting them while they browse for comics? If you need someone with you, keep them close so the rest of the shop is free for others to shop with space.

Drop in at quieter times.

We’re open earlier and later than many other shops around here, and we’re open 7 days a week. Take advantage and shop when it’s quiet. Check our busiest times today on Google maps

Tap.

Pay with a tap card. If you use your card, fancy watch or phone to pay you can pay without needing to touch our counter or EFTPos machine, or handling cash.

Call ahead and have your comics waiting.

Give us a call on 0262487335 and pay over the phone and you can drop in and pick up your comics from the counter.

Stay at home and get mail order.

Most of our graphic novels are listed on our online store, you can order there, or give us a call or email to arrange mail order for an even wider range of goodies.

Stay informed

We are following any advice from the authorities and experts. You should too. https://www.health.gov.au/ https://health.act.gov.au/

Wash Your Hands

Wash your hands with soap for at least as long as it takes you to recite…

Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before. Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.

Capt. Jean-Luc Picard

No contact

No handshakes, hugs or glomping.
We prefer a vulcan “Live Long and Prosper” salute or a Wakandan “Wakanda Forever” salute.

Stay home if you are unwell

If you feel crook, stay at home and send someone else to grab your comics or get it posted to you.

If you fit the criteria for getting tested, get tested.

If anything changes, especially regarding our deliveries, we’ll let you know.

5 Graphic Novels Perfect for Spending a Couple of Weeks Alone

5 Graphic Novels Perfect for Spending a Couple of Weeks Alone

We’ve all heard and seen how the coronavirus has led to people stocking up on some basic grocery items – toilet paper, tissues, pasta, rice etc. Presumably, this is to make sure they’ll survive if they have to isolate themselves for a couple of weeks.

More important than food and medical supplies is of course, reading material. What is everyone going to do when they can’t get their daily* or weekly fix of comic story goodness from Impact Comics?

Madness. It will be utter madness.**

Fear not – we’ve got you covered with 5 graphic novels perfect for spending a couple of weeks alone, that’s five amazing big, chunky, graphic novels that will make sure the time passes quickly and enjoyably, through these long, dark, lonely times.***

So without further ado, here’s…

5 Graphic Novels Perfect for Spending a Couple of Weeks Alone

Note though – these aren’t necessarily for young graphic novel readers. Another blog post will cover long-form comics for all ages and different genres. The ones listed below though are perfect to dive into while the kids hog the tv with Mario Kart or your housemate spends their time off work learning the harmonica.

1) Watchmen

Published by DC, writen by Alan Moore and illustrated by Dave Gibbons

An oldie but a damn goodie. You’ve probably heard of it, maybe you’ve seen The TV sequel TV series or the movie (shudder,) but perhaps you’ve never read it. Or maybe you have. Either way, now is the perfect time to get lost in Moore’s alternative reality, alternive superhero, murder-mystery story. 

Its themes – good v evil (and where the line is,) political and social crises looming over the world – speak to current political and economic situations in Australia and internationally. With just the right amount of doom and gloom. Also, it’s a beautiful book with a structure and depth of imagery that you’ll appreciate. 

This is a comic book classic that you’ll revisit again and again. Plus if you rip through that and want more (legend!), there’s also the comic book sequel Doomsday Clock too!

2) Uzumaki, Junji Ito

This one is for the horror fans (especially ones like me who are too chicken about watching horror movies). In the city of. Kurōzu-cho, a supernatural curse has taken over and a spiral pattern is haunting the town and sending the people mad. It’s main character is a high-school teenager so you could say it’s a YA story, but really it’s for anyone into horror stories and beautiful books.

This series was orginally published weekly in Japan between 1998-1999, and since then it’s been published as sweet English language omnibus. We’ve got the Delux Edition for only $39.99, which will cover your own curse-avoidance/isolation period nicely. 

Also, there are bunch of other Junji Ito manga to work your way through. Each one is essentially self isolated… er stand alone, so you can read them in any order.

3) Akira

by  Katsuhiro Otomo.

Some of you might (rightly) be saying hang on, Akira is a series of books not one chunky work. This is true, however each of 6 volumes are chunky reads themselves. It covers a range of genres and themes,  as a Japanese manga, cyperpunk, mental illness, superhero, story with political/social commentary. Kaneda, a teenaged biker and his crew try to stop their telekinetic friend, powered friend from reawakening Akira, the entity that turned Tokyo into the post-apocalyptic world they know. 

4) Blankets

by Craig Thompson

A cult-classic, best selling graphic novel so beautiful that you’ll read it again and again. Set in Wisconsin, USA, this is a autobiographical, YA, coming-of-age story about Craig finding his first love with Raina while also navigating his Evangelical, devout Christian family, his rivalry with his brother, and discovering his own beliefs. Black and white illustrations give the story a wintery tone and depth to match the quality of writing. But don’t just believe us when we say it’s amazing, believe Time magazine who ranked it #8 in it’s Best Comics of the Decade (2000-2010) and #1 for 2003. Plus Thompson’s other work has received four Harvey Awards, three Eisner Awards and two Ignatz Awards, and nothing says quality like institutional recognition. 

5) The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers

compendium, by Gilbert Shelton

We’ve given you horror, coming-of age, manga, alternative political superhero stories – now we give you iconic San-Francisco stoner alternative culture. The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers are not actually brothers, they’re three guys who, along with their cat… well, Fat Freddy’s Cat, are trying to find more drugs. It’s a product of 1960’s counter-culture having first been published in 1968 and at a deeper level, it critiques government, politics, and the establishment (i.e The Man), and counterculture itself, through a comedic, pantomime style.

The original 13 issue run was kept in print for decades, and now this volume contains the entire run in one book, so your mates can’t lose one issue down the back of the couch.


Of course, that’s only 5 graphic novels perfect for spending a couple of weeks alone. We’ve got plenty more chunky graphic novel goodness to get you through two weeks (or more) alone, so get in touch if these ideas don’t grab you or you just want to chat about them further, either through our socials or the Impact Comics website (where you can also shop online and get delivery to you).


*Yes daily. Some people shop with us daily. We love them. 
** Maybe madness is too strong a term
*** Times may not be as long, dark, or lonely as indicated.
