Welcome to the temporary website of


Site's first day of business: 1/21/03 / Site updated: 1/23/03

Here, is where you'll get the information about the most innovative new comic book store in the world. Be sure to bookmark this page and check back with us often so that you can see our time tables for new and/or collectible items, toys and, of course...comics.
When we're ready to open the official website, it'll be announced here first.
This site is meant not only to keep you informed, but to start giving you the opportunity to start ordering merchandise now.


This Spring, we will be opening our first store in Las Vegas, Nevada, which will establish our reputation as the newest concept for a comic book store because of certain things we're adding to the store which will make it unique amongst all other comic book stores We're not at liberty to say what those things are just yet because we are some paranoid geeks who think some espionage mission might commense to steal our idea. Our shrink tells us that we're too suspicious.


Already, for the Grand Opening of this store, we've acquired the time and presence of Lightning Bolt Comics President/lead artist, J-Bolt to sign autgraphs and sell his line of products which includes posters, t-shirts and much more. We plan on making First Edition Comics & Collectibles into the official Lightning Bolt Comics outlet for comics and merchandise.

Also coming soon, we've gladly invited (and been accepted by) Jackson Bostwick, the 1970's Captain Marvel, from TV's "SHAZAM!" to bring his own merchandise for all you fans to purchase and he can sign.


Items we're selling NOW:

FREE SHIPPING ON ANY ORDER OVER $150.00. See how nice we are?

OUR first FEATURED ITEM is this literally one-of-a-kind original artwork of Lightning Bolt Comics' When Lightning Strikes cover, as drawn by J-Bolt, in 1987, and was never used for the comic itself. J-Bolt was so excited about seeing the cover finished, that he mistakenly colored this original before getting black and white copies. On top of that, there was also a spelling error in the word "lightning", leaving out the "H" in the word.
The picture below shows it framed and never having been touched, itself, since the framing, in 1987. The label, and J-Bolt's signature, on back authenticate this as being the original art and identifying all the other facts we've stated about the piece. The front glass is also signed by him. Another great feature of this item is that J-Bolt signed his real name to it, since he had not established the J-Bolt name until 1989. That name will only be visible to the buyer of this artwork, but is blanked out here.
Obviously, this piece will cost a pretty penny so, first come first serve. You may purchase this item using PayPal, the most trusted e-commerce source in the World. Just click the button below the item to make your purchase.

Purchase this item for $1,989.95 (with $10 packaging, shipping and handling) using PayPal.

A NEW VARIETY SKATEBOARD: aIR-craft (NOT RELEASED IN STORES YET):
This ITEM was just picked up from a new products toy convention, in Las Vegas, on 1/22/03. It *HAS NOT* yet been released to toy stores yet, so we were told by the marketer. That's why it was at this new products convention.
The picture below shows it in all its glory, out of the box. You can also see the box behind it marked "PATENT" and with all the certifications necessary for a new toy.
This new variety skateboard was made by Achieva and this is your first opportunity to get ahold of it before anyone else does. If it does not sell here first, we will be offering it on eBay within a week or so and we're *QUITE* sure that it will sell for a heckuva lot more than we're asking for it here.
Quick note: We only have this *ONE* in stock, currently and don't know if we'll get any more of them in.

EXTREMELY RARE FIRST RUN "THE STORM" POSTERS:
We only have 4 of these posters on hand, right now, but will have more soon. There were only about 200 of them made.The first one was actually on the right where it was pencil shaded. The printer promised that it would look better if the pencil shading was erased (the left one), but it wasn't. The poster was drawn and autographed by J-Bolt. We only have 1 of the clean posters and the other 3 are pencil-shaded.

Purchase this item for $12.95 (with $2 each packaging, shipping and handling) using PayPal.

VINTAGE G.I. JOE MORSE CODE LIGHT:
Here's a perfect item for G.I. Joe collectors. It has been tested and works fine, even having its original decals (including the battery instruction decal inside the battery compartment), but the only problem with it is that the headset, that goes on the figure's head, is broken, but the remaining half is still well attached to this great toy..

Purchase this item for $14.95 (with $2 packaging, shipping and handling) using PayPal.

SIGNED "THE STORM" POSTERS:
There were only about 10,000 of theSE printed. The poster was drawn by Steve Carr and J-Bolt But is autographed only by J-Bolt.

Purchase this item for $19.95 (with $8 packaging, shipping and handling) using PayPal.

1990's Spider-man ACTION FIGURE:
This Spidey is in a bit of worn down shape, but that's mostly because it was used as reference by reknowned comic book artist, Steve Carr. We know Steve's work from all the major comic book publishers, basically, besides the fact that he is one of the creators partly responsible for the creation of the Kyle Rayner Green Lantern costume. This figure has some paint wear, is missing one finger, and is missing the suction cups from his hands (which we all know is easy to replace).

Purchase this item for $4.95 (with $2 packaging, shipping and handling) using PayPal.

BATMAN FOREVER AND SUPERMAN iii MOVIE NOVELS LOT:
These are the original novelizations, of the movies, in good condition and ready for purchase. The Superman III book even has still photos from the film. It's the best way to remember Christopher Reeve as we all do. Even though these movies weren't the favorites of too many people, the books are really well written.

WHITE LBC BOMBSHELL T-SHIRT:
