Spa City Comics is a quaint little comic shop where the average comic book reader is likely to find almost anything they?re looking for when it comes to new or back issues. They also have a decent selection of TPBs and a large selection of manga, which is probably the biggest in the Capital District, ironically enough.


This store is all about customer service because they offer a great discount of 20% off nearly everything for subscribers. They are also big on making special orders, too. If they don?t have what you?re looking for, they seem willing to get it.


NEW COMICS: For such a tiny store, Spa City has a surprisingly large selection of new comics. Naturally, they carry all the titles by all the mainstream publishers and a select few indies. You?re likely to find any new or recent comic here, which is pretty standard for comic shops these days.


BACK ISSUES: I have to say I was genuinely impressed with the back issue selection at this store. The majority of their library is made up of Modern Age comics with a few key Bronze Age and older books tacked up on the walls around the store. I found the prices to be totally reasonable and maybe even slightly cheaper than average. Again, for such a small store their selection is quite varied (when it comes to DC and Marvel, that is).


DISCOUNT: Spa City Comics is easily the smallest comic book store in the Capital District and yet they have one of the biggest discounts for subscribers - 20% off everything in the store (with some exceptions). I really respect stores that offer a flat discount to subscribers; it makes the shopping experience more streamlined. You already know you?re getting a good deal on your new books, but the fact you get a discount on back issues and trades is like knowing the store is having a sale every time you shop there. If I lived in Saratoga I?d probably subscribe through them.

Pros: Good selection of new and back issues and manga, good prices

Cons: small, cramped store; not as big of a selection as most stores.

Have always been helpful to us Navy boys in the area. Subscriptions, member discounts, large selection, these are just a few examples that set this store above the rest.

I will be making my first trip to this shop tomorrow. I phoned ahead to get business hours of operation. I'll be there between 10 am and 7 pm tomorrow evening.

An actual review will be written tomorrow.

This store has two things going for it. One, the guy who runs it is pretty cool. And while the selection he carries isn't all that great, you can always special order stuff through them. Two, it's the only game in town. Seriously, it's the only comic store in Saratoga. What are you reading a review for? There's no other option.
