That’s probably what you’re thinking right about now. “Jetpack Comics?” Who are these guys? What gives them the right to post some blog about comic books? And where the hell is Rochester, New Hampshire?
Well buckle up, Chachi, cause it’s time to kick things into high gear.
We’re Jetpack Comics & Games, and we’re the NH Seacoast’s greatest comic book and board game store (the Seacoast is a bunch of towns that aren’t really near the ocean, but they say they are so they sound cool). Sure, there are other places in New Hampshire that sell the same stuff that we do, but how many of them have bullied the President of Dark Horse Comics to come to their store, or gotten into a twitter feud with Kevin Smith over his show Comic Book Men? How many stores in New Hampshire have had the world famous creator of Kick-Ass and Kingsman Mark Millar travel OVER THE ATLANTIC for a store signing?
Only one. And that’s us.
We’ve been smart-assing the comic book industry for over ten years, and this? This is just one more stop on the Jetpack train, baby. Hop aboard, ’cause we’re going to give you inside tips on collecting and selling comic books that no one else is going to tell you. We’ll give you so much information that you won’t even know what to do with it.
Got a collection that you want to CGC (that’s Certified Guaranty Company grading for those not “in the know”), but not sure if that’s the way to go? Not sure if you should trust the Overstreet Price Guide or eBay? Wondering WTF a “Gwenpool” is?
Then you’ve come to the right place. Here, we’ll help you turn that collection into something that’s worth some serious COLD HARD CASH… but we won’t tell you how to open a store. We’re not THAT nice. We’ll probably even tell you some fun stories too. Jon’s got a great one about becoming best friends with Pa Kent from Smallville, and there’s always the time Al dressed up like Red Sonja at a convention (the pictures are out there…but we don’t recommend looking them up).
So, stay tuned for updates on all the nerd stuff that you should be paying attention to. Consider this your invitation to the “cool kids” table.
