  • Really loud heavy metal music playing throughout store. I guess people like that. They have a great selection of comics and comic related stuff. Also have a good selection of games. As well as some really cool mini figures. 10/10, would recommend.
  • Honestly as a disabled person I would really appreciate if they had anywhere to sit. Sometimes it takes a while to decide whether or not to buy a graphic novel you've never read before. I understand they want to discourage people from reading and then not buying but I'd spend a lot more money there if it wasn't physically painful to shop.
  • In terms of toys, great selection. In terms of comic books and graphic novels, I wish they had more in terms of older material. Other than that, great location, very clean and well organized.
  • Will refuse to sell you comic books in stock on the day of release if it gets "hot" or has buzz which could lead to price appreciation in the near future. Good luck getting a book with hype at cover and forget about getting more than 1 copy of it if they are selling it. Just go get some action figures like a 10 year old.
  • Staff is friendly and helpful. Orginization on the new releases could be made easier to understand but not a big issue. They also have a variety of board/card games and nerd gear as well as monthly events and signings for different comics.
