How was your FCBD event? Our event gets bigger and better every year. We always have the Batmobile from the first movie along with the local Star Wars 501st. Last year we had a Batman and Catwoman, and Pepsi came and gave out free soda all day. Financially, it was the biggest day in the store’s history.
What did you like about the Retailer Summit? I always like comparing notes with fellow retailers. I’ve made many lifelong friends at these things, and it’s always good to stay informed with everybody’s future publishing plans.
What aspect of your store makes you most proud? We have the best selection of graphic novels in the state and our employees are incredible.
What do you do that is innovative within your store? Recently we purchased fixtures from Borders and have revamped our whole store. With better organization, I’ve finally been able to add a section for award winners, another one for media tie-ins, and another for employee picks of graphic novels. I am going to highlight different creators soon too, which is something I have been wanting to do for years.
What has been your best in-store promotion? Our best in-store promotion every year is always FCBD. It’s always my favorite day of the year. It’s fun to give back to the community, see the joy on the kids faces, and make a lot of money at the same time.
What has been your best out-of-store or cross-promotion? I’ve been involved with the convention scene here forever, and currently am involved with a group – Comic Book Classroom, that is getting kids in middle schools writing and reading comics. In the last year or so, that’s been taking more and more time, but is incredibly rewarding. I also supply the college bookstore with graphic novels and do outreach in the local schools to make sure they have comics in their libraries.
What recent changes have you made in the store? Adding new bookcases from Borders was the most recent improvement. I’ve been mixing and matching fixtures for years, but now everything looks much more professional.
What are your plans for the near future? The thing I love about my store is that it is constantly changing and evolving. I’m never satisfied, I know it can get better. The Comic Book Classroom is building and I’m involved in the Denver Comic Con, Denver’s first ever three day show, coming June 15-17 this summer.
How did you choose your store name? Back in the day, we carried sci-fi and fantasy books too. I also used to play a pinball machine at Colorado University called Time Warp and right around that time an obscure movie called The Rocky Horror Picture Show had a catchy tune by the same name. Everything just all came together at the same time, and thus, Time Warp popped in my head and I knew instantly that is was the perfect name. Our dinosaur riding a spaceship logo says it all. We’re where the past meets the future.
