ZANADU COMICS NEEDS YOUR HELP!!

The CRISIS is upon us!!
(and we're not talking about the next big comic book crossover event!)

After 41 years of fighting in the trenches of comic book retail, Zanadu Comics is in danger of losing the battle against economic downturn, increased rent costs, and unfortunate city developments which includes a possible relocation due to building renovation late next year. These factors have dealt a deadly blow to the mighty Zanadu, but with YOUR help, we can continue to provide Seattle with the kind of comic book shop it deserves while still maintaining the level of service that our customers have come to know and love.

It's hard to admit when help is needed, even harder sometimes to ask. So it is with a heavy heart that we reach out to YOU, our loyal customers and ask for your understanding and support in these dark times. Let's keep this gateway to imagination open for you, your family and future generations of comic book readers!!

This Gofundme campaign will allow us to pay down our lines of credit, increase advertising/marketing efforts, fund moving (if necessary) and establish a solid baseline for continued growth while continuing to successfully pay our suppliers and employees on a timely basis. Spread the word by telling your friends, co-workers, pets, neighbors, hell, even your kid's imaginary friends, because none of us wants to have to find a real job...
 
Much love to all our customers for their continued support over the years—it has meant everything to us who call Zanadu our home.

LONG LIVE THE ZANADU

For those donating at the "Savior" ($1,000) level, we are not only offering our utmost love, admiration and 10% off all purchases for life, but one of the boss' super special, limited edition, hand painted, hand crafted vinyl models! For years, Perry has had these one of a kind models on display at the store as glorious eye candy, but finally the time has come for them to find a good home! All models are pick up only or local delivery by the boss himself. All bases, backgrounds, extra bits were assembled by hand from scratch and the artist has since passed away, making these truly unique peices of art that will never be replicated again. Sorry, we can't ship them out of state because they would most likely break into many pieces and then nobody would be happy. There are 9 models total to choose from, first donated, first served, etc.

Creature From the Black Lagoon
Amazing Spider-Man
Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer from Batman: Returns)
Green Goblin
Joker
Batman (Michael Keaton fom Batman/Batman: Returns)
Predator
Alien
Rocketeer
