The Charmery X Atomic Books

Image
We've teamed up with our friends at The Charmery!

We picked two of our favorite books, and asked The Charmery to come up with new flavors.  Now you can pre-order a pint of the ice cream and a copy of the book!
From The Charmery:
How lucky are we?
The best bookshop in the entire galaxy happens to be right down the street from us in Hampden! Our Master Creamer David got together with Owner and Book Guru Benn Ray to pair some essential summer reading with essential summer ice cream. These flavors are available first only as a Pints & Pages combo. $25 gets you one book and one paired pint.

For the Kids:
Book: Unstoppable
Ice Cream: Black Forest Brownie
About the book from Benn Ray:
With irresistible art by Laura Park, Adam Rex's clever book is about the importance of cooperation and environmental protection. It's a book about community.

About the ice cream from David Alima:
Inspired by the love and respect given to the natural world this flavor is a chocolate and roasted cherry bas…

Comics Are Back - Here's How To Get Them!

Image
In mid-March, Diamond Comics Distributors (the exclusive distributor of most comics) temporarily ceased distribution of new comics due to the COVID-19 crisis.

This coming Wednesday, May 20, new comics start regularly coming out again.

If you do not have a comics subscription box with us, will need to order comics from our website. You can choose to pick them up via curbside pickup, use free local (3-mile) delivery or select our regular mail-order.

HOW TO GET YOUR OWN COMICS SUBSCRIPTION BOX AT ATOMIC
If you want to set up a comics subscription box with us, email benn [at] atomicbooks [dot] com with a list of titles you would like to get every month. You must get a minimum of 3 monthly ongoing comics. You get a 15% discount off of every title you subscribe to, but you must buy every title you subscribe to and you have to pick them up at least once a month.

If you are already one of our comics subscribers...
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOUR SUBSCRIPTION
Ideally, this will be seamless for your co…

A SPECIAL MESSAGE ABOUT COMIC BOOKS: A month ago, Diamond Comics Distributors threw stores like us under the bus when it decided to cease the distribution of new comics, even though every other regular book distributor we work with found a way to safely (albeit slowly) continue to distribute printed material. Since Diamond was, at the time, the exclusive distributors of Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Image and a number of other monthly pamphlet-style comic books (some might call it a "monopoly"), this essentially put th…

The Last New Comics For A While

Image
NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Atomic Books is not currently open to the public. But while we are closed to the public and browsing, you can order in-store/curbside pickup, you can have things shipped, and we're doing free local delivery within 2 miles of the store. Subscribers can also still pick up your books between 11-5 (Mon. - Sat.). 

These are all the comics arriving Atomic Books this past week. Typically, most new comics are available on Wednesday AM. However, due to the current situation, Diamond Comics Distributors has ceased distributing new comics and printers have stopped printing them. So this means these are the last new regularly occurring comics for the foreseeable future.

Quantities are limited. Some titles go fast.

Atomic Books COVID-19 Update

Image
Due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, Atomic Books is not currently open to the public and won't be again through the end of March (when we will reassess the situation).

It is our intention to keep everyone at team Atomic employed, so we are at the shop from 11-5 daily for the duration.

And while we are closed to the public and browsing, you can order in-store/curbside pickup, you can have things shipped, and we're doing free local delivery within 2 miles of the store (just select In-Store Pickup and in the comments section write "Please deliver" - again, this only works for people within a 2 mile radius of the store and orders must be placed by 3PM for same day delivery).

Comics subscribers can also still pick up books between 11-5 daily.

We're still getting in new releases and shipments everyday at the shop.

Also, Eightbar sells to-go in case you need a local craft beer add-on (which we can also deliver).
