        Great selection of comics and memorabilia. Joe, the owner is very helpful and makes your visit worthwhile by sharing insights and suggestions. Although our family has stopped in other shops, we are loyal to Blue Hen because Joe always goes the extra mile. Those who haven't caught comic book fever should check out Free Comic Book day on the first Sat in May. Superheroes and Star Wars Characters are on hand to greet the kids. Always a fun event.

        I collect comic books and I have for many years. I always buy them at Captain Blue Hen comics. As you might know, the local college, University of Delaware has a mascot of a blue hen, and that is where this name comes from. For a small store they have a really good selection of comics, trading cards, and various collectibles. They do have promotions, like free comic book day, and meet the authors of comics for autographs, they do things like Harry Potter day, and things like that, but not just for kids. I should also mention the employees are also comic book collectors, so they can help you out a lot.

        I do not regularly buy comic books, so I'm no expert. But when I went in, it seemed like a well run store, with tons to choose from, and stuff ranging from kid to adult. They have a free comic book day a few times a year, so make sure you check that out! Lots of parking!

        I have seen this bookstore make enormous strides to become more relavant to the community. I just hope that the citizens step up to support the bookstore as it is trying to support their needs and their children's needs. Under the stores boss leadership the inventory and events calendar has grown immensely. Nice place but is a bit expensive.
