Cool Jerk signing at the SCC

This one’s for you, San Diego— I’ll be having a pre-holiday Cool Jerk signing at my favorite area comics shop, Southern California Comics in Clairemont Mesa! Come by SCC on Dec. 7, which is a Wednesday (also known as New Comics Day™®©). I’ll have all my books, Cool Jerk t-shirts, Canvas Panels, original art and the like… and will be offering on-site specials.

I’ve been shopping at SCC since geez, the late 1990s? They’ve thrived while many other area comics shops have shuttered their doors. Their inventory of Silver Age and Golden Age comics is without peer this side of Santa Monica. If you need new comics, recent back issues, statues and/or other collectibles, head here first. Owner Jamie Newbold and his staff have long been allies of Cool Jerk and I’d like to do what I can to drive new customers through their doors.

Trust me— you'll need this map!


Getting to Southern California Comics is a little tricky, if you haven’t been there before. Please use the map above, or log in their address into you smartphone. In general, it’s located in an industrial park on the north side of Clairemont Mesa Boulevard, two traffic lights west of SR 163. Drive all the way to the back of the driveway and it’s on the left. It’s well-worth the trip to find this hidden gem of a shop.

Here’s Southern California Comics’ Facebook page. Go ahead and give ‘em a Like and be sure to come by Dec. 7th to pick off some holiday shopping!

    I’ll be there! Southern Calif. Comics is the best shop in San Diego County by a wide margin. Comickaze has a lot of indies but the place is a rotting trashheap and the less I say about them the better. I loved Comic Gallery back when Dennis ran it. I’m sad they finally went out of business.

    Love that shop! Southern California Comics has so much comics, but not much in the way of indies or self-published stuff. Maybe when they expand they’ll devote some more wall/floor space. (I’m going to be out of town during your signing and I hope it goes awesome — but I hope you don’t sell out of OMG Color because I need that!)
