Collector’s Paradise Comics & Gallery, San Fernando Valley’s Premiere pop culture store, is excited to announce that it has purchased the famous Pasadena hobby landmark, Comic Odyssey, and has turned it into the second location of the company’s store brand, Collector’s Paradise.
Everyone knows that with the current economy, consumers are spending less than before on their hobbies. Collector’s Paradise believes that as the economy changes for the better, the comic book industry will recover and with the proliferation of comic-based movies, a whole new audience will continue to grow for our products. “Opening a new location has always been a dream of mine, and bringing more business to such a fine area as Pasadena is an exciting opportunity we just could not pass up”, said Edward Greenberg, one of the co-owners of Collector’s Paradise.
The timing of the opening of the new store could not have been better, as it gives Collector’s Paradise the opportunity to unveil the new location during the most exciting day of the year for the whole industry, Free Comic Book Day. An annual event that happens every year on the first Saturday in May, Free Comic Book Day has become the most attended day of the year for most stores participating in the celebration.

One of the season’s most anticipated hardcover releases will be making its West Coast debut at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles, and New York-based writer Jim McCann (HAWKEYE & MOCKINGBIRD, NEW AVENGERS: THE REUNION) will be on hand to mark the occasion!
Advance copies of RETURN OF THE DAPPER MEN, illustrated by Janet Lee and published by Archaia, will be available for purchase, and Jim will be happy to autograph your copy for free…!
RETURN OF THE DAPPER MEN is set in Anorev, a world in between time, where children have played so long it’s almost become work, machines have worked so long they have begun to play and all the clocks have stopped at the same time. This is how this land has remained, until 314 dapper-looking gentlemen rain down from the sky and set off in different directions to start the world again. Now Ayden, the only boy to still ask questions; Zoe, the robot girl all other machines hold dear; and the Dapper Man known only as “41” must discover what happened that made time stop, understand what their true places are in this world, and learn what “tomorrow” really means. The sun is setting for the first time in memory, and once that happens, everything changes.
RETURN OF THE DAPPER MEN is a visually stunning fairy tale that combines steampunk with fantasy and science fiction with Renaissance style. Jim McCann and Janet Lee have created a world where J.M. Barrie, Lewis Carroll and Maurice Sendak meet Jim Henson and Tim Burton. All sharply dressed in a pin-stripe suit and a dapper bowler hat. Tick tock, time is about to start.
Featuring a foreword by the original dapper man, Tim Gunn, and a pin-up gallery by some of the hottest talents in comics, RETURN OF THE DAPPER MEN is a great gift for anyone this holiday season. Publishers Weekly placed it on their Graphic Novels As Gifts Guide, and USA Today praised it as an “instant classic.”
Come and get your copy of RETURN OF THE DAPPER MEN and have it autographed by Jim in his only West Coast appearance of the year!
