  • As far as cartoon of the comic, its goods, games, t-shirts, Japan... The shop people. Premium book is so pretty and I Hey. Than the normal children of so-called American geek and girls were coming. So it's a mania can be enjoyed without. While the clerk who also really comic seems like, in the back of the plastic parts out and grooving. Is also nice souvenirs to buy. NAA is an American, too. I think it carries meaning to say interesting.

  • 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.

  • Fantastic comic shop for new books and merchandise. There doesn't seem to be a back-issue section however. Beyond that, the store is huge (for Manhattan) and the staff from my interactions are friendly and approachable. I work around the corner and stop in a few times a month. Make mine Forbidden Planet.
  • Not all it's hyped up to be. Can get quickly overcrowded with people who don't actually read comics, but don't let that discourage you. The staff is very knowledgeable and there's an excellent selection of comics books and memorabilia. They also have a nice collection of rare B-movies, if that's your bag. Best times to visit are weekdays, before or after Comic-Con/Holiday season.
  • Terrific Place, lots of merchandise. Fairly busy when I went. I wish it was larger. It seems like it could use more space for all the merchandise that they have there. The staff was very knowledgeable about a variety of Pop Culture items.
  • The place is full with comics, books, figures and board games. Its the perfect place to let you inner geek flourish. But be careful, prices (at least on board games) me be a bit higher here than in other places. Still a great place to go
  • Their well organized inventory and layout make finding what you need an easy task. And even if you don’t go in looking for anything in particular, you’ll probably find something worth impulse buying. The only problem would be that it can get very crowded very quickly, but don’t let that discourage you from making the trip.
