About A-1 Comics
A-1 Comics is a full service comic and gaming store with two locations in the Sacramento area.
Our goal is to provide the very best in selection, affordability and customer service for the products we carry. We are dedicated to having the
largest selection of new comics, vintage comics, new and collectible toys, statues & busts, manga, board games, role-playing games, collectible
card games (Magic, Yu-Gi-Oh), collecting supplies, gaming supplies, specialty items and paper collectibles. In addition we host a large number
of tournaments for all the gaming products that we carry. Depending on location we can seat 30-80 players per event. We provide prize support, freebies
and giveaways for many of our events.
We host many special events at A-1 Comics with Free Comic Book Day being our largest event of the year. FCBD is always the first Saturday in May with this
years event falling on May 2nd, the same weekend that the movie Avengers II releases. We have been very fortunate to have the support of the Avengers
Initiative, a live costuming group, support our store each year. We then support them with donations for the local Children's hospitals. Halloween
is a great time at A-1 Comics as we host a costume contest every year at our Roseville location with an amazing amount of prizes! Regular sales at
the stores including our famous Patio Sales run out of the Sacramento location mean there are always bargains to be found.
Not only will you find great bargains on a wide variety of items at A-1 Comics but
the stores have the largest collection of vintage comics and collectibles in Northern California. We are always buying collections of vintage comics,
graphic novels, toys, statues and recent backissues so there is something new in the stores every week. We work particularly hard to have a good selection
of Marvel & DC Silver and Bronze Age keys, long runs of most major titles as well as the newest books with variant covers. At the Sacrament store
we always have a strong selection of Golden Age and esoteric books.
We have been very fortunate to have been in business for 27 years and realize the reason for this success is the support of so many customers who we appreciate
greatly. Because of this we have been able to give back to our communities. Twice a year, in partnership with Blood Source, we host a blood drive at
the Sacramento store. We have one each Fourth of July and on Black Friday. We conduct a Canned Food Drive each year between Halloween and Thanksgiving with the store matching all donations 1:1. Through the Avengers Initiative we support local Children's
Hospitals in the hopes of bringing smiles to faces with comics and toys. When asked, we have always supported local sports teams and school organizations
with items for auctions and raffles for their fundraising. Our community is very important to us; both the in store comic and gaming community and
the larger community where our stores are located.
Our goal is to provide and foster an environment pleasing to both our comic customers and our gaming customers as well as the casual customer visiting
for the first time. To that end we are always willing to listen to ideas for new products or events in the store. Please don't hesitate to speak with
any of the staff about ways we could improve our stores.
Best, Brian Peets
