We’ve planned our biggest lineup of Back to the Books of all time! Remember discovering your first comic, playing games with your family, imagining yourself in grand adventures, and, best of all, finding friends who shared your feelings? Paradox returns you to those memories this September with our biggest Back to the Books lineup of all time! In addition, we're announcing a special promotion: shop at Paradox in person between now and through Back to the Books for the opportunity to get exclusive “1st 50 “giveaways.

Every fan will find their hobby and a celebration. This blog post ties together all our events and sales so you can participate in any or all of them!
