Things must have changed since the last reviews, or perhaps as with many other things it was written by the owners of the business. Stopped by today, near the end of the day & asked about the Free Comic Book day and if everything was gone ( because I saw nothing on the table or even a sign), got an attitude with the owner asking if I was hopping between the different comic books shops. I didn't see why justify the question, but the answer is no and by the way don't worry I'll simply continue buy from "Jokers Child" & Paradox who are truly customer friendly.

Comic Explosion is a great local place for comics new and old with a wide selection. Located off the main street (Franklin Ave.) it is not too far or hard to get to. Parking is a little difficult as they are many business in that area. Also offered are collectibles and other nice related items.

PROS: Great Store for Locals
CONS: Parking Availability

Comic Explosion in Nutley, NJ moved into a bigger space thanks to its popularity. They used to be in a little store before the move, but now they really look like a major place. They carry the big two companies--DC and Marvel Comics--as well as a lot of independent comic book and small press publishers. In fact they advertise themselves the most "Indy Friendly" store in NJ!

The range of comic books include new and back issues, imported comics, manga comics, both Golden and Silver Age comics, graphic novels, and trade paperbacks. They also have posters, t-shirts, magazines (both national and international), trading cards, toys, games, books, DVDs, Anime videos, and so much more.

The staff is super friendly and always ready to help out, especially going out their way to find what you want. If they don't have it in stock they will definitely hunt it down for you. I think they really enjoy the scavengetr hunt. It makes things very interesting.

The clientele base is very steady and keeps growing, thanks to the easy-to-use customer subscription that guarantees you get what you ordered. This way you don't miss an issue or item especially if they sell out.

Definitely stop by whenever you get the chance because they service is great. Comic Explosion fills a need in its area and I'm know for sure the denizens are happier because of it.

PROS: Bigger place, more to see, friendly staff
CONS: none

This shop is tucked away on Centre Street just a few blocks up from Franklin Ave. They have a huge selection of new and back issues with alot of the store dedicated to action figures and collectibles. They also carry all the back issues of Weird NJ which is a plus.
