    They have awesome merchandise, and they do special orders. The decor is the bees knees, and I highly recommend stopping in!

    Hands down one of the best comic book stores. If you feel unwelcome in ABC, you don't like pop culture.

    Love this shop and it's great for geek girls! There are tons of nice female employees who can answer any question and aren't intimidating. If you see a Ladies Night event, don't hesitate to go!

    Ten percent off all trades and graphic novels. Plenty of items for non-comic reading friends to browse. Also check out their discount Sidekick Store open only on weekends.

    Let your frea– we mean, geek flag fly while your eyes behold indie comics, 1st editions, figurines, manga, trade paperbacks, and graphic novels. The dedicated staff are friendly and know their stuff.

    We are now almost exclusively a comic book store, although we still have our old sign with a unicorn on it out front and we are comfortable with that.
