Collector’s Paradise partners with Pacific Theatres for Green Lantern Giveaway

Official Press Release

Collector's Paradise





San Fernando Valley’s Leading Retail Comic Book Store partners with two West Valley branches of a popular movie chain to raise awareness of comic books by giving away a free Green Lantern Comic Book to movie goers who see the newest comic-related movie. 


CANOGA PARK, Calif., June 16, 2011 – Collector’s Paradise Comics & Gallery, San Fernando Valley’s Premiere pop culture store, is excited to announce that it has partnered with the popular movie theater chain, Pacific Theatres, to promote the latest Warner Bros. release, Green Lantern, with a FREE Comic giveaway, through the Winnetka 21 and Northridge Shopping Center branches.

Comic Book related movies are overtaking the popular culture, and Hollywood is the biggest beneficiary of the new trend. Already this year, we have seen releases of several comic-related movies, in Marvel Studios’ “Thor” and Fox’ “X-Men First Class”. Warner Bros.’ biggest comic release of the year, “Green Lantern”, opens this weekend, and Collector’s Paradise co-owner Edward Greenberg felt it was the right time to partner up with movie theaters to promote the store.  “I have always felt that working with movie theaters would present a fantastic promotional opportunity, but was never able to step up and take advantage of it.  This year, DC Comics offered us a chance to purchase a large quantity of a Green Lantern Secret Origin issue at a promotional price, and I felt it was perfect timing to do a big campaign around a movie release”, said Edward Greenberg, one of the co-owners of Collector’s Paradise.

Starting today, June 16th, and until supplies run out at the theaters, everyone who purchases a ticket to see Green Lantern, will receive a limited Edition Green Lantern Secret Origin comic book, part of a limited run produced specially for Collector’s Paradise.  The comic book is branded with Collector’s Paradise store information, and a fantastic coupon offer for a special discount on DC Graphic Novels, to be redeemed at the store’s Canoga Park and Pasadena locations.

Collector’s Paradise Canoga Park is located at 7131 Winnetka Ave. at the corner of Sherman Way. Collector’s Paradise’ Pasadena branch is at 319 S. Arroyo Parkway Unit 4, at the corner of Del Mar, in Old Town Pasadena.  For additional information, please contact Edward Greenberg, co-owner of Collector’s Paradise @ 818-999-9455 (business)  or by email, at


Collector’s Paradise Comics & Gallery has been a mainstay in the Southern California Comic Book scene since 1994. In recent years, the store has focused on offering their customers an exceptional experience that goes beyond collecting comic books, from monthly creator appearances, to the proprietary online subscription manager software, to the Art Gallery. For the last four years, Collector’s Paradise was picked by fans as the Best Comic Book Store in Los Angeles County, according to online polls done by Fox LA and LA CityVoter.  Earlier this year, Collector’s Paradise opened its second store branch, in Old Town Pasadena.
