Store Expansion!
I'm proud that we are able to offer a diverse lineup of gaming and programing!  However, I recognize that he popularity of many events, especially the gaming, can make it difficult for those of you who just want to come in and browse.  And the expansion of our gaming has made it difficult to adequately display the vast array of interesting and different comics and graphic novels we offer.

I am thrilled to announce that Friendly Neighborhood Comics is expanding!

In January we will be constructing a new gaming room!  We are expanding into the back storage area of Primo Pizza.

The new gaming room will offer even more space for gaming, tournaments and special events.

We will also be able to expand our all ages section and improve the layout of the store.

I'm excited to be able to offer these improvements to the FNC Community!

One last secret behind these loathsome creatures will be revealed as "The Trench" thunders toward its bloodcurdling conclusion!


The trail of a missing child from a wealthy family leads Jonah Hex and Amadeus Arkham into the watery catacombs of Gotham City's still-under-construction sewer system -- but will they survive the many dangers that lurk in those twisty depths? Also: introducing the Barbary Ghost, a fireworks wielding mistress of vengeance, stalking San Francisco's criminal underworld.


Batman must race against time to save a friend's life. But his mission may prove impossible as he reels under the weight of three hundred chemically enhanced super-criminals who stand against him. All clues point to one psychotic criminal, and all roads to a solution that will lead to one secret location... but will Batman arrive too late to stop the rage let loose on his city?


The Blackhawks have a brutal, apocalyptic showdown in the Eyrie against their newest, most dangerous foe. Meanwhile, Canada and Wildman enact a desperate plan to escape their captors...but escape to where?


As Central City remains dark from the recent EMP blast, The Fastest Man Alive remains in hot pursuit of the one who set it off: Mob Rule! What does Mob Rule really want? Learn the rest of his origin right here!


This issue, the spotlight turns toward the Middle East and sinister forces that wish to get their hands on their very own Nuclear Men! But what is the mysterious connection to Ronnie and Jason? Plus, as the action explodes into all-out meltdown, the boys will have to deal with a wounded friend before time runs out!


Straight from the pages of JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK comes John Constantine! Problem is, rather than help Andrew in his war against the Queen of Blood, Constantine figures it would make more sense to just wipe out all of the vampires, including Andrew!


Madame Xanadu's plan is working! Zatanna, John Constantine, Shade the Changing Man, Mindwarp and Deadman are all being brought together. But will Xanadu's manipulations blow up in her face when she learns that Enchantress has grown too powerful to be controlled?


The exciting conclusion to the Savage Hawkman's first adventure is here! Hawkman battles his way through Dr. Kane's compound, where the alien monstrosity known as Morphicius is sheltered. But in his quest for alien knowledge, Dr. Kane unknowingly jumpstarts what Morphicius refers to as the Black Plague. Can Hawkman contain this deadly outbreak, or will New York soon become infected with lethal, fast-spreading alien organisms?


Discover the origin of the new foes who have been making The Man of Steel's life so painful and chaotic lately. What are their ties to the current ACTION COMICS epic? Plus, Lois Lane uncovers a tragic secret from Superman's past!


Wonder Girl has come to New York City to find Red Robin and fill him in on what she's learned about N.O.W.H.E.R.E., but it turns out she's going to have to go through the mysterious Superboy first! As two of DC's most powerful young metahumans battle over the streets of Times Square on New Year's Eve, Red Robin assembles his team to help Wonder Girl.


The mysterious Voodoo has left destruction in her wake since fleeing New Orleans. Her nemesis Special Agent Fallon remains hot on her trail as she heads for Metropolis...and Fallon isn't the only one, as a new, third player enters the hunt.
