  • If you like comics or gaming or anyth sci-fi, you'll love it. They have tons of mainstream and unique merchandise and all kinds of cool stuff to satisfy your geek side. Staff was awesome as well :) at least walk past the entrance and check out the Terminator skeleton in the window :) (Florida tourist)
  • I love this place! I remember when it was in a different location down the street. They have added a bunch more cool stuff and merchandise. The store was also kept pretty big, so I'm happy about that and they do have a good amount of books on sale. A great place for the comic book and movie lover to browse.
  • Massively busy, but for good reason. Huge range if comics and collectables for sale here. Worth a trip.
  • Small comics store with decent selection. IMO the place could you an overhaul of the layout. At this point it feels hard to navigate and the prices/selection leave much to be desired.
  • I always really enjoy going into Forbidden Planet. Their (newer) location is really pleasant to be in even with the usual crowd of people. The staff is always friendly and knowledgable. Even if I am not looking to buy anything there is always something I want.
