  • Go for the comics, stay for the conversation
  • Cheap variants, if in stock
  • Super nice staff, will order you any toy or statue you want like 4 months in advance!
  • Best assorted comic book ever seen
  • Check out local zines and comics in the back
  • Passionate sales people. Lots of Manga translated from Japanese that still read right to left for some reason. My 8-year-old son loves it here though he was the youngest one here by 20 years.
  • It's definitely more comics/graphic novels, than games, but they have a large selection of the latter. And they staff can answer most questions.
  • Super friendly staff
