    I wish that the comics had been divided into groups based on publisher, not just alphabetically by title.

    Bonus to signing up for their pull list: All the comics you get within the time frame are 20% off! And all comics in the store will be 10% off, no matter what!

    They're popular so they tend to run out of new issues quickly, but you can sign up for their pull list (for free!) and they'll hold all your comics for two weeks.

    It can get crowded at night with people in line for NerdMelt just picking thru the comics killing time. If ur there on a mission for books try to be patient an not kill anyone. They are still ur ppl.

    The best place to buy comics and see live comedy in L.A. I moved to the neighborhood to be closer to Meltdown and it was worth it.

    Debate which superhero is best, then venture to the back room for a cheap comedy show at the NerdMelt Showroom.

    The displays they have set up throughout the store were fantastic. I was that nerd walking around pointing out things and giving the history on it to friends. Was there for Greg Proop's podcast.

    Fun fact: their little alien logo was designed by Dan Clowes (hence the collection) - great place for events but not for actual comic books.

    Amazing, the store is still in business! They sell the SAME book and comic merchandise that Barnes&Noble does, or Japanese Kinokuniya bookstore at the high price. Warning, NOT a discount place, sorry.
