The owner & staff are very educated in their respected fields (be it comics, collectibles or gaming) & are very polite & easy to get to know. Have had many enjoyable gaming & shopping experiences here with hopes of more to come. Don't listen to aman2468's trolling of this store.

Ran out of money before I was able to hit the non-sale stuff. Tons of back issues, all priced at a buck! Trades for under 5 bucks, New trades at 15% off. Affordable pricing on full boxes of Magic. Would also mix and match on some packs. The owner is a wellspring of information. He even advised me not to buy something because he said he read it and didn't like it.
The back of the store was loaded with folks of all ages playing magic. They looked like they were enjoying themselves. Well behaved and no gamer-smell. Has a free pull-and-hold for weekly comics and does special orders. Going to be back for Throw-back Friday for magic this week.

Great store with a good selection. Lots of different comics and games. Great Magic the Gathering crowd on Friday nights and Saturday afternoons. Very good at hunting down hard to find books and special orders. A must stop for anyone who wants to support local business

Good selection of the popular Super Hero genre. Free subscription service. Cheap back issues as well as a big selection. Friendly employees and customers. Well behaved gamers on Friday nights. Quite a diversity of ages playing and all seemed to be having a good time. Offered to find items if I couldn't scrounge up what I was looking for. Smoke free environment. I always enjoy my visits to get my weekly comics or Magic fix.

I'm just getting around to my review, but I saw that my counter to another review was answered. At least he was honest about holding a grudge.
However, I didn't have any problems with any of the Magic players and there was more than enough room. I had more fun on Sat. because it was a draft with some newer players, which I am one of.
As for comics they have all the main stream and then some. Could use a few more independent publishers, but other than that I think this place is a fine establishment.
To aman2468 grow up. If you don't like the place don't go. No need to slam a place. Just go find a new one.

No complaints from this corner. Hope this little shop can keep going in this economy. I'm rooting for them

I think this is one of the best little comic stores around. You don't see many shops of this size around anymore. Big business is cutting into too many little shops.

Not sure what was up with the other reviewers but I think this place is a super place to game and get books. Could use a little more in the indie dept. but you can special order anything out there.

Employees are very knowledgeable and helpful. Willing to go the extra mile.

I would go back for sure and I would bring friends. A must stop for anyone who likes comics and games. Even some sports card stuff too

Yhis store was pretty miserable. The owner was ignorant, and didn't have lots of knowledge. The place is extremely jammed, with a 2 table for gaming and has a low number of comics, other then older junky ones that would be found in dollar bins. It is not the ideal place for a gamer or a collector.

Had a good selection of current issues. Asked as to why there weren't a lot of Independents. Was told that the customers only seem interested in the main stream super heros. Had a decent selection of back issues. I counted 12 long boxes full. Prices started at 99 cents with a large amount at $1.25. Staff (one person) stopped what he was doing and asked if I was looking for anything in particular. Engaged me in conversation about current comic related issues.
Had a decent selection of trades and hard covers. Mostly Marvel/DC. Again, a reflection of what the customers wanted. Good amount of current board books. Was told the old stuff doesn't sell anymore. Has a free pull and hold service.

Enjoyable atmosphere with friendly employees. New comics easy to find. Good selection of supplies. Lots of trades and hard covers to choose from. Had a" buy two, get one free" on trades going at the time. The owner and customers brought me into a conversation about the industry which was rather enjoyable.
Logs of Magic and Star Wars gamers in back of store going about their business. Seemed to be enjoying themselves. Well behaved. Carries select gaming products based on sales and owners personal favorites.
Had a good time.

Tiny store on the side of a strip mall - I counted 4 boxes of overpriced back issues, one wall of moderns (which is a lot less than all the other stores I've been to), a couple of variants in the glass counter. No indies, no wall books, not worth a second trip.
