Storm Chasers! We regret to inform you that this will be the last High Five where we give you our weekly picks for what you should pay particular attention to on the new release wall. But don’t despair! The video series is being retooled and renamed. Starting next week, the videos will be named The Storm Watch. One of our customers and a long-time contributor to our many artistic needs is working on the logo for it as we speak. We will still be providing our indispensable list of hot comic books you don’t want to miss.
Before we get to the changes, let’s cover what’s staying the same. Each and every week, we will still highlight the books from DC, Marvel and independent publishers that have something of interest to a large number of comic book readers. This could be a first appearance, the beginning of a story arc, a new series or some big event in a character’s life. Hot comic books come in all shapes and sizes.
There are two things that can cause The Happiest Day of the Week to become The Worst Day of the Week. First, coming into your favorite Local Comic Shop for that book you’ve been dying to get only to find a gaping empty space on the wall where it once resided. In order to prevent that from happening, we provide this list as a primer for you New Release Day. Second, getting a comic that may not have the appeal to you that you expected can cause The Happiest Day of the Week to be less so. Watching our video will hopefully help you get some additional information and make the right decisions for you. We know that you work hard for your money and always want you to get your money’s worth at Brainstorm Comics and Gaming.
But what about those changes we spoke of? First, we are breaking our list into three categories–DC, Marvel and Independent. After speaking to customers and looking over our High Five videos, we realized that not all three were equally represented. There is such an abundance of great content right now that it makes it difficult to do so, at least under the old format. So our second change in response to that is giving each category three picks. That’s right–you’re going to get four additional hot comic books for the same low, low price! Third, as we already discussed, the name is changing from The High Five to The Storm Watch.
To help prevent you from being a victim of Missing Book Syndrome on those hot comic books, we recommend you begin a subscription through our store or adjust your list accordingly. If you are not a subscriber, it’s easy and you can sign up from you house. Not only that, you can make adjustments on your own to ensure you are always ahead of the crowd. Why sign up? Well, not only will you get those books you want, you also get the following savings:
20% off new comics
20% off back issues
20% off graphic novels

Unlike other stores, we don’t require you to have more than one comic on your list in order to unlock those discounts either. The only requirement we have is that you come in at least once a month to purchase the books in your pull box. Of course, even that is negotiable as long as it is discussed with us in advance. We have several customers who live further away and can only make it every other month or so. Our goal is to provide a great experience in every way we can.
