Welcome To AK Comics

I BUY COMIC COLLECTIONS!!!



I also buy Hotwheels and other toys. Action figures, etc.
 


Hi, my name is David, and I own AK Comics. The "AK" stands for my kids first names, and yes, it does annoy them when friends at school ask them about their "dad's store". :) I started my store because I'm a huge comics and toy geek. They say you should try to sell what you know, and I know comics. No, I'm not the type of person who has encyclopedic knowledge in my head on the history of comics. But I do know a couple things.

I still have a subscription service available, if this is something you’d be interested in, please contact me for details. I’ll be changing my phone number so I can get texts, the new number is 608-927-7848
I currently have someone working to put together a website for me. If not for my first person getting Covid, this would have been done already. Please be patient and keep checking back. This has been a very frustrating process for me. 

After you get ahold of me, I'll send you an email with the various links for the comics publishers

I want to say thanks to EVERYone who’s ever spent a penny with me. By the time I close, I’ll have been open for almost 18 years. I’ve met a lot of great people over the years (and a handful of not so great people too). It’ll be very sad for me not to have the interaction on a daily basis with my customers. I’ve made some lifelong friends in these past 17 ½ + years, had some fantastic conversations, and some that were just plain weird. :) 

After some regrouping, I’ll start showing up at local cons with crap (uh, valuable merchandise) to sell. Come by and say hi :)

New customer subscription guidelines.

Minimum number of comics per month to start a pull list will be 5.

The first 2 months will be paid in advance. If you’re reliable and easy to meet up with, then we’ll take it from there.

All payments will be cash or paypal only!

New comics discount will be 25% off cover price. If you use paypal, discount will be 22%.

I order out of the monthly Previews Guide. You can access it online at

www.previewsworld.com

I can order anything out of the catalogue. Everything will be discounted off  MSRP. That includes comic books, Trades, Graphic Novels, Toys T-Shirts, etc. The discount will depend on my cost and shipping. Bigger items will have a cost closer to MSRP, mostly because my cost and shipping is usually higher.

I won’t be dealing with coins, so all totals will be rounded off. When you have new comics, or items, come in, I’ll send you a text, or an email, with your total.

We’ll decide where and when to meet up when necessary.

 

 I will STILL be buying collections. 

 

So, it’s been awhile since I’ve updated this. I’ve been sooo busy, I just haven’t had a chance. (yeah, that’s a lie, I’m lazy and haven’t felt like it) What amazes me is how many people have commented to me that they’ve actually read my ramblings. Trust me, no one is more surprised than I am. J I can’t even get my kids to listen to me for this long.

I’ve also had some people (well “some” is more like “a few”, ok, ok, ONE person, one, stop nagging me!!) tell me that I also needed to update my movie reviews. So without further ado, we have to start this off why a journey to a galaxy far, far away….(btw, there WILL be spoilers)

My daughter and I have an agreement that we can’t see a Star Wars movie the first time unless we see it together (my son betrayed me when Force Awakens came out and saw it first with friends, he’s now disowned…thinking of changing the name to K Comics)

Can we PLEASE stop showing so many damn trailers?!?! Every movie does it nowadays, but Disney/ Marvel really seems to have a problem with it.

Justice League.  I know there’s a lot of DC movie haters out there, but I really liked this movie. It was great seeing all these guys together. Aquaman was great “That dude isn’t right!” Superman coming back, grabbing Batman and saying “Do you bleed?” Awesome J I liked the Flash, “You guys are all ready to do battle, but I’ve never done battle. I’ve just pushed people and run away” Why couldn’t they get the movement of Flash better? His “running” looked terrible, he looked like he was figure skating. Also, how did he run off to save civilians before Sups was fighting, only to not find any until AFTER Superman showed up to help him? He’s so fast, he should have been done and looking for more.

Ready Player One.I really liked this movie. My advice, if you haven’t read the book, don’t. See the movie first and then read the book. I think if you read the book first, the movie wouldn’t be as satisfying to you. Luckily, I waited until after I saw it to read it. That way I enjoyed both equally. The cool thing about the movie was all the kid flashback scenes for me. I remember playing Adventure, and I remember finding the dot and going to the first “easter egg”. I didn’t see what the big deal was at the time, it was just some guys name. It was a bit of a disappointment at the time. J

Aquaman.  Loved this movie. Jason Mamoa is great as Arthur. My only gripe is the inconsistency with Justice League. In Justice League, Arthur and Mera meet IN Atlantis. In Aquaman, they “meet” for the first time, and Arthur states he’s never been to Atlantis before. Now, you could explain this away saying this happened before Justice League, but in Aquaman, he references helping say the world with the league.

Shazam.  What a fun movie. I liked how Freddie was “testing” Shazam’s powers without always telling him what he was testing him for. JI was pleasantly surprised to see the entire Marvel family make an appearance. And yes, Shazam’s name is actually Captain Marvel. He had that name LONG before Marvel started using it. That’s why Marvel named their character Mar-Vell. Speaking of which…

Captain Marvel. Another Marvel hit. I thought it was a solid movie. Not the strongest movie Marvel has made so far, but still good and entertaining.

Avengers, Infinity War. Wow, this movie was great. Just to be clear, the entire ending was Starlord’s fault.

Avengers, End Game. Another great movie. I loved this. Seeing all the heroes fighting together, Falcon saying “Cap, on your left”, Spiderman finally getting his hug from Tony. Tony’s death scene. Just awesome. But, time travel in a movie will ALWAYS leave way too many plot holes. Time travel, bad. DON”T DO IT!!! Oh, and I was NOT a fan of fat-Thor. They also seemed to have dumbed him down for this movie. It annoyed me. Here’s a battle-hardened warrior who falls apart after personal tragedy? I didn’t care for it.

Spiderman, Far From Home.  So, Spidey has always been one of my favorites (along with Superman) and I really enjoyed this movie. He was in way over his head with the elemental creatures and he got his butt handed to him, as he should have. I like how MJ “67%” figured out Pete was Spidey. I was surprised with the credit scene with his i.d. revealed, and was thrilled with JJJ being back. JK Simmons is perfect in the role. J

Btw, to ALL of you people who think that Greedo shot first, again, you're WRONG. I saw the movie in the theatre when it was new (yes, I'm old as hell), Han shot first. Deal with it and move on.


PULLING OUT THE SOAPBOX...BUY LOCAL!!!
Yeah, it's nice that you might be able to save a couple bucks by buying through an online store, good for you. But you know when you come in looking for a comic book, one that you didn't order through them, or a certain Magic card or a couple of boosters? You see how convenient it is to have a local store? Well, this local store won't be here for much longer if you people don't stop supporting the economy in other neighborhoods instead of this neighborhood.
