You Decide What Books We Carry

Introducing 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.

Anya's Ghost - New This Week!

Anya could really use a friend. But her new BFF isn’t kidding about the “Forever” part . . .

Of all the things Anya expected to find at the bottom of an old well, a new friend was not one of them. Especially not a new friend who’s been dead for a century. Falling down a well is bad enough, but Anya’s normal life might actually be worse. She’s embarrassed by her family, self-conscious about her body, and she’s pretty much given up on fitting in at school. A new friend—even a ghost—is just what she needs. Or so she thinks. Spooky, sardonic, and secretly sincere, Anya’s Ghost is a wonderfully entertaining debut from author/artist Vera Brosgol.
