CORNWALL, Ontario – This February, Fantasy Realm and Randy Sauve will be celebrating 34 years in business. Randy has collected a lot of gems in his stockroom over the years, and now he’s willing to part with these treasures for the low price of a dollar.

From now until Feb. 2, Fantasy Realm is having a Dollar Days fundraiser. Randy has brought out boxes and boxes of comics from his stockroom out onto the store floor.

“When we renovated the store in ’91 we had just six years of storage,” he said. “I’ve had to shrink down my store size as stock has crept in, so this is to curb that.”

Randy explained that with the nature of the comic business, he has new items coming in every week, with older stuff being quickly pushed into stock.

Randy said that popular comics trending right now includes those about Firestorm, who is rumoured to be setup for big things in the DC Universe in 2019, and anything about Captain Marvel Carol Danvers who is teased to have a big role in the next Avengers movie.

He went on to say that he had done a review of his stock over the summer.

“Some of these I’ve had since I opened, and I asked myself why I’m holding onto this stuff,” he said.

All the comics that come in the white boxes in Fantasy Realm are a dollar. As boxes are emptied over this next month, Randy says that he has plenty more to replace them.

On Saturday, Feb. 2, Fantasy Realm will be celebrating it’s 34th year in business.
