Happy Canada Day!

Captain_Canuck_Day_AnnualPlease note that the Comic Book Lounge (but not Temple of Toys) will be open on Monday, June 30. We are normally closed on Mondays.

Both the Comic Book Lounge and Temple of Toys will be closed on Tuesday, July 1 because of Canada Day.

Anyone that comes in today gets a copy of the FREE Captain Canuck Canada Day Special.

Wishing everyone all the best on this Canada Day.

Please note: our Canada Day(s) sale continues until July 10 – buy any two older graphic novels or back issue comics and you can get one more of equal or lesser value for FREE!

 

Please note: hours advisory and an apology re: Sunday, June 8

The Comic Book Lounge is generally open from 12-7 every Tuesday through Saturday, as well as 12-6 on Sundays. Both the Comic Book Lounge and Temple of Toys are closed on Mondays.

On occasion we will stay open later on weeknights – if you would like to come by after hours please contact us during working hours at 647-345-1035 or email info@comicbooklounge.com

We also exhibit at a lot of Toronto and area conventions, so on some weekends that coincide with these events we may close because we cannot staff both the retail shop and the convention. We will do our best to notify you in advance when this is the case.

On Sunday, June 8th we had to close early (2:30 instead of 6pm) because I (Kevin Boyd, the owner) had a personal matter to attend to and I did not have an available staff member to cover the store for the remaining 3 and a half hours we were advertised to be open. This is a special apology for Patrick and anyone else who was inconvenienced by our closing early that day. We strive to maintain our advertised hours, and will do our best to notify our customers and the public if an emergency comes up that requires us to close early or if a convention is on where we choose to close the retail shop.

Francis_Manapul_001

batman_66_vol_1_1_textless7PM – 11PM – BATMAN ’66 HC BOOK LAUNCH with TY TEMPLETON!

Put on your go-go boots and get ready to “Batusi” back to the Swingin’ 60s as DC Comics reimagines the classic Batman TV show! In this hardcover collecting issues #1-5 of the hit series, The Dynamic Duo takes on The Riddler, Mr. Freeze, The Penguin, The Mad Hatter, The Joker, and more of the world’s most colorful Bat-villains!

Please join us for a special bat-party at a special bat-time at the Comic Book Lounge (and our neighbours the Temple of Toys) with the one and only Ty Templeton!

On display will be original artwork from Batman ’66 #2 and #6. Ty Templeton will have his Batman ’66 prints available and original artwork for sale!

Feel free to come dressed as your favourite hero or villain! Come and do the Batusi — we’ll have someone there who can teach you how! Neil Hefti’s swinging jazz on the stereo, and some Batman ’66 on the small screen!

bmLibations will be available for purchase. A tall glass of milk helps build strong bones and teeth in case you need to catch the Bat-rope in your teeth!

Plus –
Spring.
Saturday night.
Good times with friends.
Batman.

All the right ingredients for a good time for all.

Come and see the back space before it becomes The Back Space!
