An Ultimate Comics Announcement

If you’re a customer at Ultimate Comics, then I’m guessing that we’ve met before. I’ve been lucky enough to work at the shops for the past four years, first managing Ultimate Comics Durham, then moving over to manage the Ultimate Comics Cary location, and most recently serving as the Operations Manager for all three stores.

I spent my days chatting with all of you about our favorite comics, the heroes we admired, the writers and artists who left an impact on us, and our love of such an amazing medium. I’ve had the chance to work with amazing people. Everyone who works at Ultimate has an unparalleled love for comics and for this business; it’s been a privilege to work alongside them. I’ve made lifelong friends with my coworkers and with some of the customers at the shop.

Working together, I’m so proud of what we’ve accomplished. We’ve given out thousands of comics at some of the biggest Free Comic Book Day events in the state. We’ve given back, partnering with amazing charities and nonprofits like Magic Wheelchair and the Hero Initiative. We’ve helped save hundreds of lives through the blood drives run by the Blood Connection. And perhaps most importantly, we’ve helped build an incredible community right here in the triangle. A community that embodies one of my core personal beliefs, that comic books are for everyone.

Looking back on all of this, it is with mixed emotions that I announce that I will be leaving Ultimate Comics in February. I have been given an exciting opportunity in the comic book industry (stay tuned for more news on that) and will be moving out of state.

While I am excited to make this big change, I will miss my family at Ultimate Comics greatly. I will miss the shops as well, shops I truly believe to be some of the best in the country. I know that everyone will continue the store’s mission of serving it’s community and promoting the comic book medium. My Assistant Manager Harrison will be taking the reigns at the Cary store and I’m so excited to see what he and the rest of the staff have in store for you in the coming year.

I want to thank Alan, the owner of Ultimate Comics for giving me some incredible opportunities during my time here. He has been such a positive force for comics in North Carolina and it’s been an honor working with him. 

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be at Ultimate Comics Cary, so make sure to come by for one last comics chat!
