Expanded Holiday Hours

Happy holidays from your friends at the Isotope!

For your comic booking pleasure this year, we’ve got expanded holiday hours, all the gift certificates you could ever ask for (and yes, we can also do those over the phone, just call us), free gift wrapping and of course the world-class personal shopping experience to help you find the perfect gift for your loved ones… or to celebrate Self Gifting Season!

And yes, you read that right, new comics are here on a Tuesday, Christmas Eve. It’s a true holiday miracle!


Happy New Year!

Thanks to all for a fantastic 2012!

We’d like to give a special thanks to all the truly inspirational creators who joined us for this year’s semesters of Isotope Comics University sessions, all our Isotope in-store special guest comic creators who helped make the whole year exciting (Jeffrey Brown, Viktor Kalvachev, Katie Longua, Ted Naifeh, Adrianne Ambrose, Tom Neely, Ed Luce, Jamaica Dyer), our featured guests and celebrity surprises from tour very own fresh new take on comic conventions MorrisonCon (Gerard Way, Robert Kirkman, Jonathan Hickman, Frank Quitely, Jim Lee, JH Williams III, Jason Aaron, Darick Robertson, Jenn O Cide, Akira The Don, James Gunn, Max Landis, Jimmy Urine, Ryan Keely & of course MorrisonCon’s co-creator Ron Richards, & our co-curator Grant Morrison), the extended Isotope family who helped us behind the scenes to create all those amazing moments, and most importantly, all of you wonderful folks. Sincerely, thank you all from the bottom of my heart for making our 2012 a truly magical time to be alive!

The Isotope will be closed New Year’s Day, Tuesday January 1st. You’ll be able to find us shaking our backsides at the “party of the year” Breakfast of Champions, see you then. And we’ll be open again on Wednesday, January 2nd… with new comic arrivals!

Extended Holiday Hours

We’re open some extended hours to ensure we’re doing our part to help make your holidays happy and filled with great comics and graphic novels. We will be open the next two Mondays (shocking!) and also an hour later than usual on the next two Saturdays and Sundays… and despite the holidays, we will have new comics available for you at the regular time of Wednesday morning. Yes, new comics still do come out on Wednesdays! It’s a true Christmas miracle!


Happy Mini-Comics Wednesday!

The Wednesday after Thanksgiving means that Diamond and UPS aren’t shipping comics in the United States until tomorrow… so as is tradition we’re celebrating with Mini-Comics Wednesday @ the Isotope and debuting a whole bunch of exclusive new self-published comics, minis, and zines today.

And I do each year, I’ve cracked open the Isotope’s extensive vault of rarities of yesteryear too. Where else are you going to find long out-of-print xeroxed and indy comics by the likes of Jeff Lemire, Jim Rugg, Paul Pope, Jim Mahfood and Charles Burns alongside new comics of the superstars of tomorrow like Andrew Mar, Breanne Boland, Matt Voss, Amy Martin and Agnes (her comic No! Bad Kitty! shown here)? Supplies are, as I’m sure you can guess, limited. But there’s some darn good stuff on the New Arrival rack today. Join us in celebrating indy comic creators today!

Tomorrow the Marvels and DCs arrive on the big brown truck and will be on the shelf by 11am, which we like too. Life is good, isn’t it?

Tuesday through Friday

11:00 am - 7:00 pm
