Speeding Bullet to close to public for 3 weeks

Wednesday, March 25, 2020

It’s an unusual time, and things are changing quickly to help stop community spread of the coronavirus. (We’ve altered the deal — pray we don’t alter it further!)

Wednesday, March 25, will be the last day we are open to the public for the next three weeks, in order to comply with Stay at Home recommendations from the mayor and governor. Additionally, this Wednesday, March 25, will be the last week we — or any comic shop — will receive new releases from the larger publishers for the immediate future.

But even though the showroom will be closed, we’ll still be selling comics!

Don’t worry about going stir crazy at home. We are happy to ship comics and other merchandise directly to you. (Did we mention we have THOUSANDS of graphic novels that you haven’t read yet?)

For the next three weeks, we will be offering flat $5 shipping, or free shipping with every purchase of $50 or more. To make shipping arrangements, call or email Dan at (405) 360-6866 or ricochetsales@aol.com. We accept PayPal and credit cards. Dan dutifully ships Mondays through Fridays.

We hope to reopen to the public April 15. Follow our social media, e-mail and website for updates.

 

Speeding Bullet temporary changes in hours and operations

Tuesday, March 17, 2020

Speeding Bullet Comics has always prided itself on serving you and our community, and we are making some changes in our operations to help stop community spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Starting tomorrow, Wednesday, Mar. 18, we will curb our hours to 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesdays and noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays. We will be limiting the number of people in the store to 10 at a time, based on advisement from the Centers of Disease Control. If you arrive during a high-traffic time, you may be asked to wait outside or in your car until the traffic in the store clears. This is intended to give everyone plenty of personal space.

If you would like to pick up comics other than Wednesday or Saturday, reach out to Dan at ricochetsales@aol.com for an individual weekday appointment time.

Alternatively, we are happy to ship comics and other merchandise to you. We send out shipments daily and can take payment via PayPal or credit card over the phone. While our hours are shortened, we will be offering flat $5 shipping, or free shipping with every purchase of $50 or more. To make shipping arrangements, call or email Dan at (405) 360-6866 or ricochetsales@aol.com.

During this time, we will be ordering fewer shelf copies of comics for sale, so if there is an item you know you want to pick up, please ask us to add it to your hold list ASAP to ensure we don’t run out. You can follow a list of our new releases each week on the right column of our website here: www.speedingbulletcomics.com. Send all hold requests to Dan at ricochetsales@aol.com. Requests will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

From our family to yours, thank you for your valued patronage.

Speeding Bullet Comics Pop Art and Graphic Novel Signing on Oct. 6!

Monday, October 1, 2018

Meet Michael Garrett of Art by MG and Robert Soul, writer of the Set-In-Tulsa graphic novel, Ruined My Rhythm from noon to 3 p.m. on Oct. 6! Talk art and writing with the creators and get original art and graphic novels signed.

Rob has acted in several musicals, starring in three, including Esther and the Banquets of Susa, for which he co-wrote the music, lyrics, and the book. His non-fiction articles have appeared in Green Country’s PreviewMagazine and TulsaPets. His short fiction, under the pen name ROBERT SOUL, has appeared in Dark and Dangerous Things III.

Here’s a description of “Ruined My Rhythm”:

Maria’s pen and ink sketches always seem to cause things to happen. Six months after a stray bullet from a drive-by kills her mother, she steals from a foster family and leaves town in search of answers and her estranged father.

A snarky, intelligent outsider, Maria is hard, edgy and tough, a combination of Lisbeth Salandar, the angry, volatile main character from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and cynical, witty, coming-of-age Enid Coleslaw from Daniel Clowes‘ Ghost World.
