"As for me, I am in pursuit of excellence. I have no time to get old."

- Will Eisner  


It has been my great honor to have received a few awards recently!


First, our store has been nominated for an Eisner!


The Will Eisner Spirit of Retailing Award is given to an individual retailer who has done an outstanding job of supporting the comics art medium both in the community and within the industry at large.


I am extremely humbled by this nomination. 


We have also won the 2011 Readers Choice Award sponsored by WickedLocal.com! 


We received a Bronze award for best bookstore in the region, and an honorable mention for Bellingham.  Since Barnes & Nobel is also in town, we need to constantly raise our performance.


We are currently working on our operations to improve point of sale, inventory control and special order management.


I am also taking a hard look at the physical layout of our store. We simply have too much in too small a space.  My hope is to offer cool stuff but display it in such a way that anyone interested can see why it is cool.


If there are any ways we can improve our service, please let me know. You can always catch me in the store or drop me a line via the "Contact Ernie" link to the right.  If we drop the ball in any way, I want to know and will do my best to make it right.


Also, if you know of any way that our store can be of service to the community at large, please feel free to pass it on.


Thank you for your continued support.




June Orders Due

I will be placing the store's June order soon.  If you have not updated your Comixology subs recently, please take a moment to do so.  Pre-orders ensure that you receive the books you want and help me to order in proper quantities.



The Customer Select Series!

Comics readers enjoy recommending their favorite books to others. Well now you can do that in the store. That's right, you will determine what comics, graphic novels and collected editions we carry.  Any genre, any story, provided that it's in print.


Here's how it works:


You tell me about a book you enjoy and would like to recommend to others in the FNC community.


If we don't already have it, and it is in print and available, I will order if for the store.


We'll set up a special section in the store for our Customer Select Series.


Ah, but here's the kicker:  You have to write out a shelf talker explaining why you enjoy the book and why others should read it.


This could be a fun way of turning others on to your favorite creators and stories, while learning about new stories you might be interested in.
