Once again, Challengers is willing to test the limits of sanity and Santaty by staying open for 30 STRAIGHT HOURS this December. Starting Wednesday, December 23rd at 11am and running straight through to Thursday, December 24th at 5pm, Challengers won’t close. Not for tiredness, not for hunger, not for more tiredness, not for nothing. So stop in any of those 30 hours for some good ol’ fashioned sleep-deprived comic book store holiday cheer.
Or, if you want BIRTHDAY cheer, come in Thursday, December 24th between 2am and 4am for ART BALTAZAR’S BIRTHDAY BASH! That’s right, December 24th is “Tiny Titans” co-creator Art Baltazar’s birthday, and he’s spending it at Challengers! At 2 in the morning! Really! We have no idea what Art’ll be doing for two hours in the middle of the night, but it’s his birthday, and we’ll be loopy and sleepy, so expect some truly crazy birthday bashery.
It’s okay to be scared.
