Last Day For Free HALLOWEEN COMICFEST Variants
Ever since we dropped all of our list prices for
older comics and magazines
by 50% - 70% off, we have been receiving a steady stream of orders from both entirely new clients, and from clients
who ordered from us in the past, but have not utilize our services in quite some time. What this is telling me is
that my recent decision to forego codeword promotions in favor of simply listing our low prices on the
was a good one. Our sales volume has certainly reflected that fact, as we are exceptionally busy right now, during a
period of the year that is typically not robust in the comics world.
A few of the comics entered in the last couple weeks.
If you have not yet perused our new
prices, I urge you to do so as soon as you can. With the price inflation spurred by codewords now completely removed from
many of our online pricing levels are remarkably attractive. Especially in light of the fact that we continue to also
offer free shipping on comics orders over $50 heading to addresses in the USA, and on require a $125 minimum for free
shipping to International destinations. Books and oversize items do still incur per item fees because of their extra weight,
but our baseline free shipping offer is still the very best in the entire comics world.

We also continue to offer free Bonus Book items to our online patrons. Today is the last day, however, that you can request
free copies of this year's 32 different
2016 HALLOWEEN COMICFEST
specials. As of 10 AM tomorrow, we will be giving away any uncommitted copies of these fun holiday variants to fans visiting
our three retail stores.
If our response from Free Comic Book Day is any indication, we'll completely run out of half of these
comics by tomorrow afternoon. If you hurry, however, you can still request an entire set of all 32 be included in your package
for free if you place a $150 order, or you can request single issues for every $10 increment of a smaller order. Just let us
know in the "Notes" as to which issues that you would like to receive. Cutoff on these requests is noon, on Saturday.
SCOOBY APOCALYPSE & HANNA-BARBERA HALLOWEEN COMICFEST (2016)
In other news, I slept quite fitfully last night, as I spent most of yesterday working with the awesome volunteers at
"Feeding Denver's Hungry."
Stuffing 800 bags with snacks and creating 200 sandwiches was fun, but when we hit the streets to actually pass out the bags, it
was an emotionally wrenching experience. I grew up relatively poor, so I know what it means to do without some comforts, but
seeing how absolutely desperate many of these older and disabled people are today is the stuff of nightmares. I could not stop
imagining how horrible it would be to find yourself at age 80 sleeping on a sidewalk, and having to hobble between soup kitchens
and homeless shelters seeking food.

In addition to older and disabled folks, there are now well over 1,000 teens also forced to live on the streets of Denver. There
are also a dismaying number of entire families who have lost their only shelter to Denver's rapidly rising rents. Our economy
here in Denver is booming, and for those who have found ways to benefit, life is actually getting quite a bit better. But for
those who have missed out on this new economic bonanza, the realities of day-to-day living can sometimes be unbelievably harsh.
It is those people that I am personally seeking to help, both through my involvement with
"Feeding Denver's Hungry,"
and also in my role as Prince Royale 42 of the
Imperial Court of the Rocky Mountain Empire.
More disabled homeless people seeking food.
In any event, I did want to mention that my latest fundraising effort for Denver's homeless has already spurred 30 readers of
this newsletter to order
$25 gift certificates.
The sum of their actions will already allow $750 be donated to
Empress 43 Norrie Reynolds' two Snow Ball charities of
specifically helps all homeless teens in Denver, while
to fulfill the more specialized needs of the hundreds of LGBTQ youth who find themselves homeless. My sincere personal thanks go out
to everyone who has already purchased a
$25.00 Gift Certificate
If you would like to help me with this effort, it is quite simple. Just order a
$25 gift certificates
from us, and we will then either mail you a certificate, or (if you prefer) simply e-mail you a registration number that you can use
on your next order. Your cost is then effectively nothing, as you get back $25 in merchandise for your $25 donation. In addition, you
will then also be automatically registered into a drawing for a $1,000 Mile High Comics shopping spree. We had only 151 people register
last time, so your odds of winning this awesome shopping spree are actually rather good. Our Empress's annual Snow Ball will be held on
November 19th, so that will be the final cutoff for entering this drawing.
The line for food.
In closing, I want to thank everyone who has supported us in any way lately. This includes everyone who has shopped in
been a member of our
new comics subscription service,
or shopped via
I am acutely aware that we are only able to offer $1,000 shopping sprees as incentives for helping the poor because of your kindness
and continuing support of our efforts. May all the blessings of Providence be upon you...

P.S. if you live anywhere near Denver, we will be hosting a huge
Texas Hold'em Poker Tournament
on November 12th, starting at 11 AM. We just raised money through our last tournament to expand to seven
regulation tables, and purchased new clay chips for up 100 players! The entry fee is $25, but if you register in advance at any of
you get your money back immediately in the form of
$25 gift certificates.
All proceeds will then be donated to the
and Snow Ball charities. Our
are incredibly fun, as we raise the blinds every 15 minutes. As a result, most games last only about 3 hours.
Mile High Poker!

check to Jim Scharper, the founder of
"Feeding Denver's Hungry,"
for $3,975.00. We are joined by
Emperor 43 Manny Sexton and ICRME Empress 43 Norrie Reyonlds. This check is the net of what we raised at our last Mile High Comics poker
tournament, and our last
no-minimum-bid auction. Leveraged through the discounted prices offered to non-profits by
The Food Bank Of The Rockies,
our donations should help Jim to purchase over $50,000 in food for the poor. That should help us to provide meals until at least Christmas.

With the bitter cold of winter just weeks away, and many of our newly homeless never before having lived outdoors in the cold, frostbite
is now our biggest concern. That is why I am heading to the army surplus store immediately after finishing this newsletter to buy 300 pairs
of steeply discounted pairs of gloves. We will give them all away to the poor next week, just as the weather is projected to begin
turning. Any help you can provide us in this effort would be most appreciated,
