  • Just a short walk from the subway, this is a marked out by the full size Terminator in the window - pretty awesome! Good display of new and vintage comic books, as well as all other geek items inside ...  more »
  • Huge selection of comics, replicas and collectibles. A pleasure for every collector. (N) again feels like a child. Large selection of T-Shirts with film and comics motives.

  • The truth is that, compared with the one in London, this store of Forbidden planet is small. It has funkos, comics, board games, figures, etc... but in small amounts. Best to visit during the week and in the morning because there are less people. It is good because they have some bargains and because it is always entertaining to see merchan geek, but there are better stores, such as Toy Tokyo, in Manhattan.

  • 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.
  • It's practically senseless to even post a review. If you're reading this because you did a search, then you likely already know of Forbidden Planet's reputation in the graphic-novel circles. This is the B&H of comics - which is to say that you can buy virtually everything online, but coming to the "Superstore" is a hajj that makes believers out of the fringe players. Oh - whatever you do - don't even THINK about sitting down on the stairs straight ahead (in back of the store). The help will be around swiftly to remind you of the "Don't sit here" sign that's located right behind your calves. Don't forget to buy the t-shirt. (You'll get a back with your purchase of over $50.00 UNLESS you check in with Yelp - in which case the threshhold is reduced to $20.00!)
  • Great place to shop for all your Justice League items! Great Retail Staff especially Jeff the best! He is very knowledgeable!
  • 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.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
