This Saturday!
See you there!
Only 3 weeks away!
Up and running today?
Stopped by Daydreams Comics today. They are doing only curbside delivery. I gave them a long list of "wants" and they looked through their back-issue stash and provided me with a stack of books I'd been looking for. Dropped everything to help me, and maintained social distancing to keep me safe. And they had a ton of what I was looking for at great prices.

Love this LCS. Will be back again soon.
Thanks Zach for dropping off the Terry Moore, Alan Moore, and more. I better start reading!
The store made bleeding cool.

That’s right! Overstreet Advisor, comic dealer and all around great human being @goldenageguru is flying in to Iowa City this weekend to host a live Instagram claim sale with myself! We will be live Saturday and Sunday starting at 1pm CST on his account, and offering up hundreds of graded comics, variants, out of print graphic novels, and some more surprises! Should be an awesome time! You won’t find the majority of this stuff at the shop, so tune in 😏 #goldenageguru #daydreamscomics #iowacity #shoplocal #supportlocal

We are proud to announce we are co-hosting @freecomicbookday with @englerttheatre this year! With our new location being much smaller and given covid concerns, there’s no way for us to host it in the shop. We are thankful to have the opportunity to host it just down the block with a long standing fixture of downtown Iowa City. It’s going to be a new way of operating for us, and it’s also Arts Fest weekend, so we ask for your understanding and patience as we make our way through the day! We are committed to hosting the event as safe and accessible as possible. We will also have all of last years FCBD comics available, as well as the biggest selection of donation graphic novels we’ve ever had to support @icanimalcenter and @iowafarmsanctuary Should be a fun time! More announcements to come. As always thank you for all your support 💪🏻🙌🏻 #freecomicbookday #daydreamscomics #englerttheatre #downtowniowacity #shoplocal #supportlocal

Well, looks like I’ve finally made it 😬 I, along with my comic shop @daydreamscomics, have been included in issue seven of the Image Comics series Crossover! Phil Hester, long time customer/friend, needed a comic shop in this issue, so he asked if he could model it after our new location…obviously the answer was yes! It’s so perfect. He couldn’t use the Daydreams Comics name, but incorporated my last name into the shop name, as well as the thought balloon from the logo. One of the best parts is the framed poster that’s on the wall behind the counter: it’s the original Daydreams Comics hall poster that he drew back in the 80’s when the shop originally started in the Hall Mall! I’m glad he incorporated it into the drawing even though he hates looking at it now 🤣 Also a subtle nod to one of my favorite bands/best friends was included 😏 Pick up a copy at your local comic shop today, I’ll even sign it if you want 🤪 #crossover #imagecomics #daydreamscomics #philhester #shoplocal #supportlocal #comicbooks #iowacity

Finalized the purchase of an epic comic collection this morning! Haven’t had an X-Men #1 in years!!! Collections of this caliber don’t come along often these days, so I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to add these to the shop inventory (and some for my personal collection)! We are working diligently to get our back issues reorganized and priced, many of these will be available once we get to that point. ALSO, if you have a collection of similar material you’re thinking about selling, LET ME KNOW! I’m always looking to bring new stock into the shop and will pay a premium for quality comics 💪🏻 #xmen1 #marvelcomics #backissues #daydreamscomics #shoplocal #supportlocal #selllocal #iowacity

We FINALLY got in a large shipment of comic bags and boards! Sourcing all comic book and trading card supplies has been harder and harder over the past 12+ months, and prices have also increased. We haven’t raised supply prices in years, but now is the time. We will continue to do our best to keep all supplies in stock as much as possible. We are also looking into doing a Drawer Box order in the near future, if there is enough demand to make the shipping worthwhile. Reach out if you would like to be put on the list for short, long or magazine size drawers!

At long last, the move is basically done...however, we left a ton of product at the old shop! We will be having an overstock inventory sale starting Friday, March 19th and ending on Sunday, March 28th.

Days and times are as follows:
March 19th - 21st: open noon - 5pm
CLOSED MARCH 22ND & 23RD
March 24th - 28th: open noon - 5pm

*The new location will continue to be open normal business hours during this time frame.

*Sale only applies to inventory at the old location. There will be over 100 long boxes of comics and close to 5000 graphic novels (from mainstream super heroes to oddball indie titles and everything in between), along with some pop culture items. Everything will be on sale, so get there early, because once it’s gone, it’s gone!

*PROPERLY WORN MASKS AND USE OF HAND SANITIZER WILL BE REQUIRED TO ENTER! We will also be limiting the number of people in the space at one time.

As an added bonus: since we haven’t been able to fund raise over the past 12 months for @icanimalcenter and @iowafarmsanctuary as well as we typically have in the past, we will be donating a portion of revenue from this sale to each institution to make up for lost funds!

So come down, get some great deals, support some great causes, and keep reading comics!

As such, we will be opening around noon tomorrow (it’s a decent size one so we will do our best to process quickly). Thanks for your patience while we deal with this!
