This was the only place in town that sold comic books and had a little bit of everything which was a wonderful addition to Terre Haute. However, in the recent years they have dramatically cut back their stock and they no longer have comic books, very little music or videos, and mostly have only used books. This is fine if you are looking for a book store, however, if you are wanting comic books, movies, ect, you are almost better to look elsewhere. Although they do have some movies, they are very high priced for the used condition and you are honestly better off going to disc replay which is less than a mile a way and much cheaper. As a long time buyer from this store, I am now finding myself go there less and less. I suspect unless this business changes back to the format they were many years ago, they will not be in business to much longer.

When I first moved here in 1999, I drove by this place almost every day, but I never went in. "New Concept Books" sounded like a New Age, Christian, or some other kind of specialized bookstore, and I wasn't interested.

Turns out, it's a huge store full of new and used books, comics, movies, video games (including hardware)...heck, they even had used clothing last time I was there.

Since I usually look at the video games and comics when I'm there, I don't have much to say about the book selection. Suffice to say it's monsterous! The video game section is amazing. I don't care what kind of system you've had in the last 20 years, you'll find games for it here.

Considering that this is really the only "comic book store" in town, it's not bad. Decent selection of new comics.

The biggest drawback is the prices. Maybe I'm just a cheapskate, but their prices for used stuff seem a little high. That's the only thing keeping me from giving this place 5 stars.
