Local News - Comics and Toy Auction Saturday - Comics Prices Slashed Storewide
I want to begin today by mentioning that we will be hosting an awesome
this Saturday at our
Jason St. Mega-Store,
beginning at 11:30 AM. This
will feature 300 items from Mile High Comics, and (hopefully) 300 items that we will
be selling for charity. Our charities this time are
which together help the homeless teens of Denver find shelter. With the bitter winds of winter soon to be upon us, we are
working hard to try and put together a great auction for these desperate kids.
That having been said, I am sorry to report that we are quite short on donated items for Saturday's auction. Our good
friend, John Paul, who puts on comics shows in New Jersey sent us a dozen really nice Golden Age and Silver Age comics,
but we are otherwise scrambling for donations for Saturday's auction. If you might have some unwanted comics, toys, or
other collectibles taking up space in your life that you no longer wish to own, why not donate them to this worthy cause?
If it would help, we can get you a donation letter from the
Imperial Court of the Rocky Mountain Empire
for the fair market value of your donated items. We are a registered 501-C3 charity, so that letter might help you to
defray your taxes next April.

On a very positive note, I did want to mention that we will be giving away thousands of this year's limited edition
variants on Saturday. Anyone visiting any of
on Saturday can receive any 3
comics for free, while those who come in costume can receive their choice of any 6. If you want more, you can receive another
title for each $10 you spend with us that day, including what you might spend in the auction! There is a limit, however,
of one full set per person, as our supplies are truly minuscule this year on each of the
titles. Cover images of all 32 titles be viewed

In addition to comics and collectibles donations we are seeking for our auction, we are also seeking warm clothes and single
serving toiletries to pass out to the homeless kids forced to sleep on the sidewalk outside if
If you have a jacket, sweater, scarf, boots, or other good used clothes that you could donate, we will have a donation box set
up at the front of
You can also drop off donations at
our other stores,
and we will ship them to
If you can afford them, we are also seeking new boy's and girl's underwear and socks, as well as packages of those awesome
chemical hand and foot warmers. I buy them in bulk for the kids at Costco. Frostbite is a real concern! I did locate a source
for new cotton gloves at only $1 a pair, so cash donations to help me buy these would also be much appreciated. My goal is to
buy 300 pairs of those cotton gloves to hand out next month to kids.
So you know,
were chosen as our beneficiaries this month by Norrie Reyolds, Empress 43 of the
Imperial Court of the Rocky Mountain Empire.
As a part of her one-year reign as Empress, Norrie is entrusted with staging the awesome Empress's Snow Ball. This year's
enchanting formal ball will be held on Saturday evening, November 19th, at the
which is located just north of the I-70/Peoria interchange. Norrie's Snow Ball is open to everyone to attend, and I will
guarantee you that she would love to receive your support at her ball. I have tickets available at the discounted rate of
only $10 each, so if you would like to join us, please write to me at email@example.com. If you like, you can sit
at my personal table during the ball.

In other news, our next big
Texas Hold'em poker tournament
will be held on Saturday morning, November 12th, beginning at
11:00 AM. Our game this last Saturday helped provide the funds for two more custom poker tables, so we now have enough tables
and chips to allow us to have 100! players. This next tournament will be held to benefit Norrie's two Snow Ball charities (
), so I would ask that everyone who has participated in one of our past tournaments PLEASE sign up.
The deal for the November 12th
is the same as the last: pay $25 to sign up for the November 12th game at any of
and we will immediately issue you a
$25 gift certificate.
You can use that gift certificate that same day, or at any time in the future. In the meantime, we will donate all $25 of
your donation to the Norrie's
Imperial Court of the Rocky Mountain Empire
Snow Ball Charities Fund. Given that bitter cold weather is almost upon us, I want this next tournament to be a huge
success, so the top prize will be a $1,000 Mile High Comics shopping spree, 2nd $500, 3rd $200, and 4th-6th $100 each.
That's $2000 in free merchandise prizes (plus the combined value of all the $25 entry fees...) that I am personally
donating to help these poor kids who are forced to live on the streets. Any assistance that you might be willing to provide
to me in helping these unfortunate kids would be most appreciated.

I will close today's newsletter by asking if you have heard about our radically lowered
prices? I ask because news about this change in our pricing policy was only released on Saturday, and up to this point
in time has been reported only in my "National" newsletter. Simply put, this is the most radical pricing change to our
older comics that we have implemented in over ten years. As a direct result, we are receiving a deluge of new orders
from our online clients, many of whom have not ordered from us in quite some time.
So you know, we are also receiving an extremely positive response from all the local comics fans who have stopped by
this week, as they received exactly the same amazingly low
prices as are listed on
regardless of what those in-store comics may have been stickered in the past. Visit
to see all of our newly revised comics prices. I think that you will like them very much.
