UNCLE SCROOGE INFINITY DIME UP FOR ORDER!

WE’RE LOOKING FOR SOME FNM & PRERELEASE HELP FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS

Play for free, get free packs and hang out doing what you like anyway – or get paid $

Our main MAGIC #mtg #magicthegathering man, “Billy” QUENTIN “Madison”  has to go back to school for a bit so we need some FNM help.

What do you need to do? 

  • You need to know how to draft and play in a prerelease.
  • You need to be able to type into a computer.
  • You need to enjoy playing Magic.
  • You get to play in all of the events you run.

While we would prefer to hire one person to do this we’d be happy to  have a number of people switch off weekly.

The FNM / Prererelease Coordinator gets to play for free and gets  additional packs for running the event.

A regular FNM would get the coordinator a total of 10 play booster packs  (3 draft + 7).
A prerelease would depend on the type (ie a Masters event is more expensive than a regular prerelease).

Of course, if you’d rather get paid $ we can work that out as well.
FNM generally runs 6:30 pm (registration) to about 11 pm.  The game  starts at 7 pm and runs three rounds.
Prereleases on Friday run the same time.  Saturday events run about 3:30  pm to 9:30 pm.

If you’re already playing FNM why not do it and get rewarded?
FNM Organizers simply need to get the players registered, set the draft  pods and get the game rolling.
You enter the results, pair everyone off and eventually hand out prizes  and report the event.

Interested?  Reach out to Ralph at jetpackcomics@gmail.com.
(Don’t FB message him as he is social media challenged).

VAULT CONTINUES TO REWARD YOU WITH FREE COMIC BOOKS with a NEW BARBARIC SERIES

Yes, BARBARIC: BORN IN BLOOD #1 is FREE for the asking but you have to reserve your FREE copy NOW

Barbaric continues to be one of our best selling Indy books, selling more copies than 50% of the Marvel & DC line.
It’s not even worth comparing those other companies because there are few books coming out that compare to Barbaric.

Why do you want this one? If you’re reading Barbaric then you already know you want it.
It’s the ORIGIN story. If you’re not reading it, this is the perfect jumping on point.

About the Series:

A new era of Barbaric begins!
Worried Axe is going to find out you fell behind on a few issues? Scared to admit that despite all your friends raving about Barbaric for years, you still haven’t joined in on the fun? Rejoice! For Barbaric: Born in Blood begins the next season of Owen, Axe, and Soren’s tale. Yes, that’s right! We did it…the thing everyone says they’re doing, even when they’re lying through their teeth: a genuinely good jumping on point. How, you ask? Well, it all starts with a compelling new bad guy.
Meet Orrick, the tortured barbarian now turned master torturer, who will take us deep into Owen’s past, revealing secrets that should have stayed buried…like Axe in a chest cavity slurping up that sweet, delicious blood. Will the cursed-to-do-good barbarian finally do some actual good? Probably not! But some much worse guys will almost certainly lose their heads. Yummy!

WE HAVE SO MUCH FAITH IN THE GHOST MACHINE UNIVERSE THAT WE’RE MAKING IT RETURNABLE

That’s right. You buy em and don’t like them you can return them for something else.

The Ghost Machine universe promises to be one of the most important releases in comic book history, since the birth of Image Comics.

You’ve read Geiger. You’ve read Junkyard Joe. Why would you miss out on the rest.

Purchase each of these (cover A only)

  • GHOST MACHINE ONE-SHOT COVER A
  • ROOK EXODUS #1 COVER A REDCOAT #1 COVER A
  • GEIGER #1 COVER A Ghost Machine One-Shot:

Highly doubtful but Okay. Bring them back by 4/17, in sellable condition, and you get to spend that money over a again. We expect you’ll end up subbing to the entire line but if not, no worries. Ghost Machine. Top creators telling stores the way comic book stories should be told.

Meet the Sidekick Mini for Collectible Cards!

The problem?

You know it well. How to protect your cards in a half-full box?

Those precious trading cards are safe when your short box (or long box) is full. The cards remain upright and protected.

But when it’s not full?

What happens when you start a new box, with too much empty space?

Your cards slide, slouch, flop,  bend, and crease. And your NM+ cards pick up dents and dings.

The Solution

The SideKick accessory hooks onto the sidewall of any typical card box, gripping the cardboard snugly to stay put. This gives your valued cards the RIGHT fit in any box, holding them upright and damage-free.

No more wads of bubble wrap. Or cardboard, backing boards, or whatever else you’ve been using. And no need to spring for another expensive plastic box!

From Our New DM, Gavin:
Greetings Rochester, I’m Gavin, a high schooler looking to start a new campaign at Jetpack on April 5th, and all are welcome!

Welcome to the Thwenvyn Cup, a fantasy race that takes place once a century for those brave enough to make it! Inspired by the stories of the Cannonball Run and Rat Race, this tale of heroes takes its own magic-filled twist! Geared towards beginners, students, and first-time players, this family-friendly campaign needs players ready for adventure. For the race only has two rules; you have one (in-game) week to get across the treacherous island of Borlovia, and not to get caught!

I will be accepting 3-6 players ages 10 and up. We will be (as of right now) meeting on Wednesdays from 6  to 8.  If you’re interested, here is my email at gavinboudreau@hotmail.com.  Please be sure to reach out to me so I have an accurate count on how many people will be joining us.

I like to also mention that there is inevitably going to be violence, mild and in traditional D&D style, but combat and violence nonetheless. Also references to the dead, undead, pirates, bugs, swords, vampires, and potentially alcohol. y’know, things that could an eleven-year-old up at night.

Character creation will take place on 4/5.

Game play is FREE.  The only requirement is that you show up weekly or let the DM know when you can’t make it.  If you miss more than 2 sessions in a row we may have to replace your spot.

Please keep in mind that Jetpack requires a guardian be present for anyone under the age of 16.

SideKick Comic Box Dividers Now at Jetpack!

The problem?

You know it well. How to protect your comics in a half-full box?

Those precious back-issues are safe  when your short box (or long box) is full. The books remain upright and protected.

But when it’s not full?

What happens when you start a new box, with too much empty space?

Your books slide, slouch, flop,  bend, and crease. And your NM+  comics pick up spine creases and color breaks becoming F/VF or worse.

The Solution

The SideKick accessory hooks onto the sidewall of any typical comic storage box, gripping the cardboard snugly to stay put. This gives your valued comics the RIGHT fit in any box, holding them upright and damage-free.

No more wads of bubble wrap. No more heavy TPBs. Or cardboard, backing boards, or whatever else you’ve been using. And no need to spring for another expensive plastic box!

THE SECRETS OF PARKING AT THE MEGASTORE

Rochester is getting bigger & better but there will be some growing pains

Pretty soon you’re going to see some changes to our parking lot. There  will be less of it.  But that’s just the heralding of a new era for downtown Rochester and the Megastore.  Improving the city means changes  to everything, but you don’t have to worry.  We’ve got the dates on  where all the prime Rochester parking is. The map you see shows you ALL  the places you can find the best Rochester parking.  Be sure to watch  for signs.  Much of it is all day parking but some may be 2 hour.

  • NO  MATTER WHAT, if there is a sign that says you will be towed expect that  the sign is true.
  • DON’T PARK IN A TOW AREA.

Thank you for your support  during this incredible transition. The growth of our downtown just  means that Free Comic Book Day is going to get even bigger and more fun.

The city of Rochester created a page on the city’s website called Discover Downtown. The page includes parking information, a place for construction updates, and links to various resources/things to do downtown. Check it out!

Comic Review: The Last God

The Last God #1 (DC Comics) TLG_Cv1_promo_5d150a35e3be99.37759382

The second new Black Label title this week, The Last God is decidedly different from the other Black Label titles on the shelf. For one, it doesn’t feature The Joker or any other DC heroes, and for two, it’s an original dark fantasy series. One would argue that this is the first real test for the Black Label line, where if Last God can succeed as a book without the help of established DC properties, then the title could really flourish. And after reading the first issue from Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Riccardo Federicci, I see no reason to think that the book and the line as a whole won’t be a big success.

The kingdom of Cain Anuun has known peace for decades, thanks in part to the defeat of the Last God by their king, Tyr. Flourishing under the new rule, King Tyr has grown pretty weary, watching over gladiator matches that depict his great defeat of the evil he and his allies fought against. Eyvindr, the crowd favorite of the gladiators, is on his final match to win his freedom. But that chance at a free life is cut short when the fabled Last God arrives once more, creating a host of gruesome creatures to do his bidding.

It’s always hard to start up a brand new fantasy story, but Phillip Kennedy Johnson’s on the right track with Last God. While it does get a little info dumpy, Johnson uses his script to pepper in some revelations about the story of Tyr’s rise to power that already cast a lot of doubt on the validity of his story, which makes for a pretty intriguing narrative. There’s not quite as much character development as I would have liked, but it all makes for a pretty engaging story regardless.

Riccardo Federrici’s art really pulls you into this world, and his dark colors highlight some truly unique and original fantasy creature designs. I was pretty stunned by some of the art in this book, and it really makes for a comic that looks like nothing else on the stands. It’s really a sight to behold, and should this title make an impact, I expect Federrici to be in high demand for future projects.

The Last God has a lot riding on it for the future of original Black Label content, but it’s off to a pretty strong start, and only shows signs of improving from there. As much as I’ve enjoyed a lot of the Black Label line, it’s refreshing to see a title from the imprint that isn’t just another out of continuity Batman or Joker tale. If anything, Last God shows off the potential of the Black Label line, and could be an indication of where the line will go from here.

$75 first comics & $45 each one after.

Turn around time can be up to 45 days or longer. It all depends on how busy CGC is.

(costs include fast track on comics [not applicable to magazine size] shipping & insurance to & from CGC)

Jetpack Comics LLC is an authorized CGC submissions vendor.

Do you have books you’d like to submit for CGC grading?

Just follow these simple instructions and we can provide a quote for you.

Email us the following details about your comic books

1 – Exact Title, Issue # & Date of Publication.

  • This can all be found in the indica, inside of the comic book.
  • Do not use the date on the cover of the comic book as this is not the publication date.

2 – Any special attributes about the comic book.

  • Variant, printing other than first print, pedigree, etc.
  • COAs are not a special attribute nor a signatures. Signatures on a comic book will actually bring in a lower grading unless you have made use of a CGC signature witness, in which case we would not be submitting it for you as the witness would.

3 – The value you place on the comics book for insurance purposes. 

  • This is the one that rips everyone up so pay close attention.
  • The amount you value the comic book affects how much it will cost to grade and how much it will cost for shipping each direction.
  • The amount you value the comic book is the amount you would get if it was damaged in transit, in the possession of CGC or in the possession of Jetpack Comics.
  • For legal reasons we can not advise you on this.  You have to determine the value yourself.

4 – Do you want to pay extra for faster service?

  • CGC can take up to 2 months or longer, at times.  There are options to have it done faster.  Of course that comes with a price.
  • With that information we can provide you a quote.
  • Please do not bring books for CGC to Jetpack until you have received and confirmed your quote.  Once this is done we can accept your books for CGC submission.

EMAIL JETPACK

IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW

Please note that once books are shipped out we have no way to retrieve them until the process is complete.  Plan on a minimum of 2 months.  All CGC inquiries are handled via email.  DON’T BUG THE CLERK CAUSE HE DON’T KNOW.
CGC does not return mylar, bags, boards, COAs, or any other trinket or bauble you send with your submission.

About CGC
Certified Guaranty Company® (CGC®) revolutionized the comic book marketplace when it was founded in 2000 by providing clear, objective and impartial assessments of authenticity and grade. Today, CGC is the world’s largest and most trusted third-party grading service for comics, magazines, concert posters and related collectibles with more than 5 million collectibles certified since 2000.

Benefits of CGC Grading
Accurate, consistent and impartial grading from CGC has made the hobby safer, more transparent and more vibrant. Collectors and dealers trust that any collectible graded by CGC has been authenticated, checked for restoration and graded according to widely accepted standards by multiple professionals. They also know that it has been encapsulated in a tamper-evident holder designed for long-term preservation. This added confidence and protection has made it easier and safer to buy, sell and collect comic books.

Notes:

In the event that CGC, at its sole discretion, determines that the fair market value of a collectible is higher than the value stated by the submitter, CGC will move the collectible to the appropriate higher tier and the additional charge will be the responsibility of the submitter. For more information on determining fair market value, review the Declared Value Policy.  please make that a link leading to a page with the following.

CGC Declared Value Policy

Submitters to CGC are required to list a declared value for each collectible in their submission. By submitting a collectible and listing a declared value, the submitter agrees that the declared value represents the current fair market value (FMV) of the submitted collectible. The declared value must represent the FMV of a genuine collectible of that same issue and variety in the same approximate condition.

If you do not know the collectible’s current fair market value, you can assign a declared value based on the price you paid for the collectible (if purchased recently), a value you found in a price guide, the price a dealer offered to pay you for the collectible or other reasonable determining method.

CGC does not assign values to collectibles. If CGC determines that a collectible is undervalued and does not qualify for the tier or services selected, it may adjust the tier and charge the appropriate difference in CCS services, grading and/or services fees based on its determination of the collectible’s current Fair Market Value. (Note: CGC will adjust the tier even if the collectible is later determined to be not genuine, altered or otherwise ungradable.) CGC will not, however, change the declared value originally assigned by the submitter.

The declared value is used to insure a collectible while it is at CGC’s facility. In addition, in the extremely rare event that a collectible is lost or damaged while at CGC’s facility, the submitter will be compensated based on the collectible’s current Fair Market Value (as defined below) in the condition in which it was received by CGC; provided that in no event will the compensation exceed the declared value listed by the submitter on the CGC Submission Form. It is therefore very important that the declared value listed by the submitter represent the collectible’s current fair market value.

Fair Market Value: For the purposes of this Policy, the “current Fair Market Value” is the value of the collectible if it were to be sold, as determined by CGC in its sole reasonably exercised discretion. CGC will determine the current Fair Market Value of a collectible based upon what CGC believes, in its sole reasonably exercised opinion, to be reliable current market information. CGC may use actual pricing and sales information available to it, including prices in the actual transaction history of the collectible in question. However, due to the volatile nature of the collectible market and Internet auctions/sales as well as the differences in buying habits of different individuals, such information may not necessarily represent the accurate current Fair Market Value of any particular collectible, which again, will be determined by CGC in its sole reasonably exercised discretion. CGC reserves the right to use the declared value listed by the submitter on the CGC Submission Form as the current Fair Market Value, and in no event will CGC’s determination of current Fair Market Value exceed the declared value listed by the submitter on the CGC Submission Form. CGC’s determination of the current Fair Market Value will be absolute and binding on all parties.

Please note that this policy also applies for submissions to Classic Collectible Services (CCS), an affiliate of CGC, if CCS services are selected on the CGC Submission Form.

How FCBD Helps Children in Hospitals

On May 5th Children who are in hospitals across the US that have signed up with Free Comic Book Day For Children in Hospitals will not only receive a free comic book like the ones handed out at the comic book stores on Free Comic Book Day, but will also receive Fly Like An Eagle Comic , written by John Wilcox. Fly Like An Eagle comic was not just a comic book project under Rise Above Social Issues Foundation but a story designed to be a project for the children who are in hospitals. This 12 page story requires the children to be an inker, colorist and cover artist! The children who find themselves in the hospitals will hopefully feel included in Free Comic book day as well as feeling a sense of normalcy for a day – I do hope Free Comic Book Day For Children in Hospitals will make a difference.

On May 5th Nancy Silberkleit co-CEO of Archie Comics will be at a John Hopkins Children’s Hospital in Florida skyping into other hospitals speaking on How Comic Books are created!!
