Writing on The Wall: June 2013 Edition

13th June

Wow, been a while since I did this! I guess I’ll have to get a new picture for these posts, huh?

At any rate, I’m happy to report that the dust has settled, the shelves are up and the art is on the wall in our new home at 8364 Rue Labarre in Montreal.

It’s been an undertaking to get it all put together, but I’m happy to say it’s going well and starting to feel like home. We’ve seen a lot of old friends and new faces since we moved and I’d like to extend a hearty “Thank You” to all who have visited!

So what now? Well, I’d like to give back a bit to those who’ve supported us through the move, the only way I know how: With Free Stuff!

I’m happy to announce that every week The … Read More »

May 22nd Is The Big Day!

16th May

Hey Guys!

So, this is it! At 8pm May 15th we closed the doors at the St Jean location and are prepping to spend the next few days moving everything over to our new home at 8364 Labarre.

It’s going to take us a couple of days to get the new place up to snuff so as of May 22nd, we will be all set to go in our brand new, custom designed space at 8364 Labarre (H4P 2E7) in Montreal, just South of the 40, East of Decarie and right next to De La Savane Metro.

The West has been so very good to us, and we can’t thank everyone enough for all the support they’ve given us over the last few years as we tried to build a better mousetrap with our store.

The next phase of that starts now … Read More »

News and notes on upcoming events and products from The 4th Wall!

Wow! So much happening in the next couple of weeks, it’s hard to know where to begin!

First up, Gift Ideas. It’s so hard to shop for comics fans because chances are they have everything! Well, don’t worry we’ve got you covered!

If the person in your life is a long time comics fan, let me suggest the ABSOLUTE EDITIONS. These are over-sized, slipcased editions of some of the best comics out there. Crisis on Infinite Earths, Sandman, Watchmen, Batman: Hush and so many more have been given Absolute editions. The best part? They are so nice that even if your person has read these stories, theres so much extra packed into the Absolute Editions that it’s like a whole new experience.

What’s that? You need stocking stuffers? We got that … Read More »

News and notes on upcoming events and products from The 4th Wall!

Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas and I don’t just say that because I’ve had to wipe my car clear of snow twice this week.

Santa’s Elves (or Bee) have been hard at work decorating the store and getting it ready for all of your Christmas shopping needs. It doesn’t matter if the person on your list is a long-time comics fan, new reader or just curious about a series or character. I’ve always said, there is something at The 4th Wall for everyone, all you have to do is come in and ask!

Next week, I’ll have a more detailed Christmas List edition of WoTW, but for now here’s a few quick suggestions off the top of my head:

News and notes on upcoming events and products from The 4th Wall!

The store is hopping lately as we officially being the push towards Christmas! Yep, ready or not here it comes, and Mid-November always seemed to me like a good time to get the Holiday ball rolling. Halloween is over and we’ve got clear sailing in the Merriest of Seasons.

I love the holiday season because it brings in so many people who haven’t visited us before. Be it looking for a specific gift for someone, or looking for something a little different, or even just fun stocking-stuffers, chances are we have it. It’s always so much fun helping people find those gifts, but I’ll say this: if you need something ordered, sooner is better than later! It takes us minimum 2 weeks to get special orders in, so to guarantee … Read More »

Girls Night at The 4th Wall – Nov 15, 2012

22nd October

As a girl in Geek Culture I can understand how hard it can be to find other women that enjoy the same things as you do. There is an unspoken bond between us comic book girls that forms as soon as we meet one another. The problem is, opportunities to find other women who love Batgirl, or the Hulk as much as you can be few and far between.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a fun, safe environment to bond with other women about a love for comics? This is why I would like to happily invite you to the very first Girls Night at The 4th Wall.

Much like a book club, this will be an evening that gives you a chance to bond with other women about comics and geek culture, listen to recommendations and learn about books … Read More »
