... If you ever go to the video library, make sure the store's owner is not there, because he'll try to sell you everything but the kitchen sink with quite a cocky attitude, definitely not a place for somebody who likes good comic books or a good movie.

I used to go to school at Penn and would come to this store to get everything from blockbusters to artsy foreign films. I came back to work in the city I fell in love with after 5 years abroad and the place was in complete disarray. I asked for several movies that should have been in but were rented out.

Finally, I got a film to take home thanks to the staff which bent over backwards to help but sadly it was scratched to the point of no return. Funny, because that's the point I'm at.

I've been trying to get into comics after reading Sandman, and after coming to Philly for grad school I found out my local video store also sold comics. Cool, right?

Not so fast.

Don't bother looking for alternative comics, you'll be lucky to find volume 1 of Sandman, Y the Last Man, or even the continual bestselling Fables. Even people who like superhero comics are sure to be disappointed, as everything looks like it was pre-read: Dingy books with bent covers, stuck together pages, and even serious water damage on one trade of the surprisingly-great-for-mainstream comic 52.

Nice place in west philly, where many students and residents can go to rent a movie on DVD or VHS. They offer quite a wide variety of movies, although sometimes they may run out of a popular title. Their prices are resonable in comparison blockbuster or Hollywood video, but the location is key, as it is very convienient to reach.

This Video Library is set in University City and frequented by many College students. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The do not have as many New Titles or as many copies of them as Blcokbuster, by any means, but it's a nice place to go for videos.

If you're the kind of person that would rather watch an Italian film than Charlie's Angels, then this is the rental place you're looking for. Located two blocks off UPenn campus, a lot of young folks frequent this shop. Even though they're a little disorganized, they have a great selection of alternative movie choices.
