Sadly, the best comic shop in the area has become a spotty place to visit. Call before going as the store is often closed and the hours are no longer posted on the door. The website and facebook don't reflect the hours either.

Love the shop and love the people in it. They always have the newest titles, a good collection of back issues, and a ton of statues, tabletop games, and card games. All around great experience!

I get all my comics and figures here, and no other place has the customer service Lee has. I've been going here for almost 3 years and have not had a single bad experience.
