  • The comic book store looks like one of a series (e.g.,). The big bang theory). Our daughter wanted to get there a souvenir for her colleague, which is a big Marvelfan. Once there, there was a huge selection of different comics. By Marvel and super heroes to the Japanese manga. You can buy also figures and cup of the comic figures. The shop itself has two floors. The only trouble is, if not so well known, it is perhaps a bit unmanageable, you will find not so fast because it's not really assigned editor or even the alphabet the selected folders.

  • Mandatory stop, if you're a geek! I would think that it is the world's largest and most recognized comics shop. Offers a range of all the comics that may exist and those who attend can help you to find that rare item that can feed your collection. If you like comics, figures, or collect this is the perfect place!

  • When we arrived in Manhattan, I didn't know that we would be just two blocks from Midtown Comics. Oh my goodness, it was a shock and treat! Not as big as the one in Times Square, but the staff was eas...  read more »
  • The authority on comics in NYC. The walk up makes it memorable, and timing is important. The wall of new comics is located right at the entrance, and it's easy to get caught up perusing with the crowd. The rest of the first level is dedicated to popular back issues, trades, manga, and new (and/or relevant to movie release) collectibles. The second level has statues, action figures, apparel, posters, and more (and older) back issues. This is the 'midtown' location of the chain, and it is a really good showing. The staff is helpful, and generally knowledgeable with interesting recommendations.
  • Really enjoyed the selection of comic found here. Staff is friendly and knowledgable. Recommend a visit to any comic fans. There is a flight of stairs you'll need to climb to find the bookstore. Not sure if there is an elevator on property for wheelchair access.
  • My fellow collectors say that I've got to check out this place if I'm in New York. They were right. I just love this place! In fact, I went here twice in 48 hours to make sure I didn't miss anything. If you're into action figures like me, then this is the place to be. They have stuff that you won't find anywhere else in brick-and-mortar stores. Take your time poring over their merchandise as they're open until 12 midnight.
  • Love the store, and has a great selection. It's a go to for me and my son. Always makes me smile to me my boy happy. Staff is great and friendly. It's a must stop for any pop culture fan.
  • Great selection of comics, both individual issues and trade prints. Great collection of back-issues. Employees are very knowledgeable about most prints. Employees are always very helpful for both beginners and those who've been reading for a while.
