BEST Batman Day 2018 EVER

BATMAN_DAY_logo_2018cropped_5b4e7428dd34b9.34359119.jpg

East Side Mags is celebrating everything Batman and we want to cordially invite you to celebrate with us!

We've got some great Batman-related stuff going on ALL DAY LONG including a very SPECIAL guest appearance by 2 comic legends!!!

We'll have some FREE Batman Comics that we're giving out all day (1 per customer)! A special re-print of Batman White Knight #1 and a special re-print of Batman: Lil Gotham Batman Day 2018 Special Edition #1 (for all ages)! 

We'll also have a variety of FREE Batman and Harley Quinn masks that we're giving out (1 per customer).

We are also PROUD to announce that the legendary Tom Raney and Scott Hanna will be joining us from 1pm-5pm.  Tom and Scott will be sketching for customers and we'll have blank cover comics available as well!

Scott has worked on so many DC and Marvel comics that we literally don't have enough storage space on the website to list everything but if you've read a Marvel or DC Comic anytime between 1990 (ish) and today, you've most likely seen his work.  He is a HUGE addition to our Batman Day event and we're super happy he's able to take the time to come hang out with us.

Tom Raney, over the past 20 years has spent his time predominantly at Marvel and DC, he’s drawn a bit of everything, from XMen to Batman. Superman to the Hulk. Notably, he’s revamped Stormwatch with Warren Ellis, the Outsiders with Judd Winick, co-created Threshold with Keith Giffen, and co-created Mutant X. While still producing work for Marvel and DC he recently drew Dread Gods, for Ominous Press.

To top it all off, we'll be playing Batman movies ALL DAY and we'll have some Batman Dollar Raffles going on as well! Stay tuned for details and available prizes for our raffles!

Commander Cup Season 3 Week 8

Welcome to the East Side Mags Commander Cup: Season 3!

For 8 weeks, beginning June 24th - we'll be playing Commander as part of an 8 week tournament we're calling the Commander Cup: Season 3!

If you have a Commander deck, entry fee is $5 per week.  If you don't, you can buy a pre-made Commander deck from us - getting you FREE entry into the tournament with purchase that day - then pay $5 each additional week.

1st place each week will win (2) booster packs of choice.  Everyone else gets to pick (1) random card from our Magic Blind Box as a participation prize.

Meanwhile, we will track EVERY PLAYER'S POINTS through the 8 weeks.  At the end of all 8 weeks, we tally up the points and whoever has the most points get their name on the EAST SIDE MAGS COMMANDER CUP TROPHY (photo coming soon)!  The COMMANDER CUP CHAMPION also gets FREE ENTRY to COMMANDER CUP SEASON 4!!!*

*You do NOT have to be here all 8 weeks but you only get points when you show up and play.  If you can make it for all 8 weeks - great!  If not, it's totally OK.  You can miss a week here and there and not be counted out - it will, however, affect your ability to get maximum points.

The 8 dates for the Commander Cup are as follows:

  • June 24 (Week 1) @ 1pm
  • July 1 (Week 2) @ 1pm
  • July 8 (Week 3) @ 1pm
  • July 15 (Week 4) @ 1pm

  • August 5 (Week 6) @ 1pm
  • August 12 (Week 7) @ 1pm
  • August 26 (Week 8) @ 1pm

Think you have what it takes to be the Commander Cup Champion?  Show us what you got!

When a powerful enemy suddenly reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king — and as Black Panther — gets tested when he’s drawn into a conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk.

Commander Cup Season 3 Week 7

Welcome to the East Side Mags Commander Cup: Season 3!

For 8 weeks, beginning June 24th - we'll be playing Commander as part of an 8 week tournament we're calling the Commander Cup: Season 3!

If you have a Commander deck, entry fee is $5 per week.  If you don't, you can buy a pre-made Commander deck from us - getting you FREE entry into the tournament with purchase that day - then pay $5 each additional week.

1st place each week will win (2) booster packs of choice.  Everyone else gets to pick (1) random card from our Magic Blind Box as a participation prize.

Meanwhile, we will track EVERY PLAYER'S POINTS through the 8 weeks.  At the end of all 8 weeks, we tally up the points and whoever has the most points get their name on the EAST SIDE MAGS COMMANDER CUP TROPHY (photo coming soon)!  The COMMANDER CUP CHAMPION also gets FREE ENTRY to COMMANDER CUP SEASON 4!!!*

*You do NOT have to be here all 8 weeks but you only get points when you show up and play.  If you can make it for all 8 weeks - great!  If not, it's totally OK.  You can miss a week here and there and not be counted out - it will, however, affect your ability to get maximum points.

The 8 dates for the Commander Cup are as follows:

  • June 24 (Week 1) @ 1pm
  • July 1 (Week 2) @ 1pm
  • July 8 (Week 3) @ 1pm
