We’ve Moved!

Due to the downtown renovations, we have been forced to relocate our business. We have settled into a spot in the Olive Avenue area, near Merced High School. We are very happy with our new location, a newer building, and have also been able to update our look. Come visit us in the same shopping center as Bagel Tyme. Our new address is 3040 Park Avenue, Suite A.

We still host D+D games and other events. Follow us on Facebook to stay updated.

We are also happy to announce that we offer discounts to subscription holders. If you have ever thought about subscribing to comic titles, special ordering graphic novels as they are announced, pre-ordering POP vinyls so that you never miss out, or ordering from the PREVIEWS catalog, and therefore getting the scoop on all the books, toys and games that are coming out in the future, you should come talk to us about what it takes to get a subscription box! You may be eligible for discounts. Let’s talk!

Thanks for supporting local business. It is vital to our community. Have a great day!


Contemporary illustrator and comics creator MALACHI WARD will be in our store Sunday, May 15th. He will have beautiful, limited edition prints and original artwork for sale. Or, just come in for an autograph on one of his comics, and talk about art making.  Join us!tumblr_o5v1ricm4M1rth6jao1_1280

Art Hop was amazing

Well, personally, I thoroughly enjoyed myself at this winter’s Art Hop, held on 1/16/16. A favorite painter and ‘zine artist John Thomason came down to do some live painting and sketching. We painted our faces and painted some kid’s faces. Great time, as usual! Art Hop is held quarterly throughout the downtown area. See their facebook for details. -Elaine

Hi folks, Red Sky Comics will be traveling to STOCKTON-CON this coming Sunday, 8/9/15. The shop will be closed that day. Apologies for the inconvenience. See you at the con!

We will be bringing a great collection of books that we have either supported on Kickstarter, or are otherwise independent and not available through normal distributors. We are proud of our commitment to supporting independent and emerging artists, especially those local to the central valley.

We support local artists by stocking their books, and also by hosting shows during Merced’s quarterly ART HOP- a downtown art event in the evenings. If you are a local artist with comic sensibilities, please get in touch with us to discuss showing your work.

Thanks, The Red Sky Team

Thank you so much for your patience.

After a few years in limbo, we are pleased to present our new website for Red Sky Comics; the central valley’s best selection of comics and graphic novels, as well as gaming spot for Magic: The Gathering and tabletop games. Here, you can find several features to keep you updated on what’s going on in the shop, including;

our NEW RELEASES tab: a weekly-updated list of all the new comicbook titles available in the shop each Wednesday (which is new comicbook day, each week)

EVENTS CALENDAR: to keep you up to date on when we are playing Magic, or hosting Demo Day– where we present the newest in tabletop gaming for you to try out, or when there are events in downtown Merced that we participate in, such as Art Hop. And, of course, Free Comicbook Day in May, as well as it’s sister event, Halloween Comicfest in October

and our VISIT US tab: where we will keep you updated on our seasonal hours changes.

You, our loyal customers, are what is most important to us. Please let us know, by email or in person, what features you would like to see here, on our facebook page, or any special requests you have of us at the shop. We pride ourselves on going out of our way to find you what you need, and on keeping up the central valley’s best selection of books. Thanks again for sticking with us. We are privileged to continue serving you in the years to come.
