  • Looks like the store is going out of business. I ordered a subscription to "The Walking Dead" back in May 2016 and never received the comic. They will not answer the phone, email or their online conta...  more »
  • Sadly, the best comic shop in the area has become a spotty place to visit. Call before going as the store is often closed and the hours are no longer posted on the door. The website and facebook don't...  more »

  • Thief!! Cannot be trusted! He stole Incredible Hulk # 180,181 and 182 comic books from my children that were gifted to them. My family gave him comics to have graded by the CGC (that is a service he offers at his store). We paid him $150 over a year and a half ago. He said he would send them in and return them once the have been graded. He still has yet to return them. He has lied repeatedly to us about where there are. He cant supply us with the comics we trusted him him with. He will not give us any information on them. He will not return our phone calls and when we stop in his store to inquire about them he gets upset and kicks us out! Those comic books were MY CHILDREN's comic books to keep for their future and he stole them.
  • My husband and I walked in and there was hardly anything on the shelves, no music playing, and boxes covering the floor. The man workIng there said hi but did not explain what was going on so we awkwardly walked around for a few minutes before quickly leaving due to how awkward it was. It felt like we had walked into to them moving locations. My only question is, WHY WERE THEY OPEN?!
  • I love 1up collectibles! I came to this shop a decent amount for a year or two when i still lived in the area and i only have good things to say. The owner ( I believe his name is Lee) truly helped me to get a grasp on how comic books and their continuity (or lack thereof) worked; he helped me so much in that regard, and always offered advice on how to enjoy every issue of a comic for what it is. Comic shops arent inherintly geared for children, but anytime i brought my young son to the store, Lee and his employees made me and my son very comfortable and welcome. I have only fond memories of going here and try to stop in whenever im in town. I owe a lot of my knowlegde of contemporary comics to Lee and his awesome employees, and would/have recommend this store to anyone. Lee even remembered me on my last visit there even though its easily been 10 months to a year since i was there last! Id be there every week if i could be
  • I ordered a book from this place in May of last year it is now almost September 2017 and I have called multiple times to try to see about my order. When they did pick up the phone which was very rarely it was an excuse as to why it was pushed back which I understand a signed book being pushed back because they're only a certain number of them but it's been over a year. If you can't supply something to your customers, a refund should be given and an email notification should be given. This place is a scam. There are so many Facebook reviews online about people ordering things and never getting them. Just tried to call them during the day five times in a row and it says the memory is full and they don't pick up the phone. I want my book or a refund, this is absolutely ridiculous. The worst customer service I've ever experienced in any situation ever. I never complain about these things but this is just out right stealing on their part. If I could give zero stars I would.
  • I ordered 2 comic subscriptions from 1up Collectibles via their website, for for 12 months -- meaning they were contracted to deliver 2 comics each month to my home address. I guess I received the first one (of each issue), or possibly the first 2 shipments (so nothing wrong with address details), then nothing for ... 4-5 months. I tried contacting 1up Collectibles via email and messages ... nothing. They have not responded. Nor delivered my comic subscriptions. Nor refunded my money. Currently in dispute via PayPal, but the original 12-month subscription order was more than 180 days ago and so I am not confident of seeing my money again. DO NOT order on-line from them. Period. (If you search on-line, it seems I am not the first to have my money taken and nothing delivered.)
