Where does he get those wonderful toys! No Joke :)

Tucked away in a corner of our showroom is this shelf of wonderful toys, all for sale. Yep, those are Disney maquettes from Emperor's Last Groove and Tarzan. And we have a Nautilus. It's a guy thing, that Nautilus. I've seen guys spot it from across the room.... and the reaction ranges from a Homer Simpson-esque slack-jawed gaze to a this-close-to-genuflection slight bend in the knees. Stuart tells me every guy wants a Nautilus... well, here's your chance :)

Since we had to run an errand nearby, we allowed ourselves about an hour off last Sunday to catch the last day of this terrific exhibit at the Skirball Cultural Center. It had been up since Feb!

It was great to see lots of families there, and kids learning some of the history of comics and the early artists. They had a reading area to read hardback collections of comics, and a drawing area with instructions and artists' mannequins. Talk about a hands-on exhibit.

We couldn't linger due to backlog of shipping that needed our attention back at the showroom. We are shipping a 46 packages today. Not a lot by internet giant standards, but it represents "super powers" level effort by your small but dedicated crew here at SNB. We are working extended hours to service all the inquiries from around the world. Your patience and support is so appreciated. At least one of us is at the office seven days a week, so you can always contact us if you have questions about the status of your order.
