THE BIG QUAD CON NEWS:
Quad Con returns to Cedar Rapids this weekend, and Krypton will be there! If you’re down in the area, stop by the booth and say hi! The show takes place on Sunday, May 16th!
More information available here: https://quadcitycon.com/
THE BIG FREE COMIC BOOK DAY NEWS:
Apparently, some news organization in town advertised that FREE COMIC BOOK DAY was last Saturday. That is incorrect
The industry moved the date to August 14th. We are going with that date to allow for more people to be vaccinated and prepared. Cool Comics are on order and so on.
THE BIG STORE OPERATION NEWS:
We understand that this is a very strange time right now. It seems like things are changing by the day all over the country. We’ve got a few things
we wanted to say here:
1) As of today, Krypton’s temporary hours are:
Sunday: 12 PM – 5 PM
Monday: 10 AM – 6 PM
Tuesday: 10 AM – 6 PM
Wednesday: 10 AM – 8 PM
Thursday: 10 AM – 6 PM
Friday: 10 AM – 6 PM
Saturday: 10 AM – 6 PM
2) We will be offering curbside pickup for your comics, if you just want to drive by and pick them up. We’ll pack them up and you can call in with payment, or other methods will be available based on whatever you’re comfortable with.
3) All of our gaming events have been cancelled for the foreseeable future.
Our primary concern at this time is the health and well-being of our customers and staff. We know that this is a tough time for many of you and we want to be at our best in serving your needs. We understand that everyone needs a distraction from the world and we think that comics are the perfect fit for that, so please let us do that for all of you if we can. And most importantly, stay safe and healthy, all of you!
Every week, PREVIEWS world announces which comics, graphic novels, toys and other pop-culture merchandise will arrive at your local comic shop. The products will be on sale in comic shops on the indicated date.
This list is tentative and subject to change. Please check with your retailer for availability.

Under Sinister’s direction, they are sure to become productive members of mutant society.
