Helpful staff, lots of comics.
Not as epic as the one in Dublin but still TONS of comic books and other nerdy books to be found!
T-shirts are cheaper if you buy them in pairs.
A old fave since forever, always a fun place to visit for comics, graphic novels, and toys.
There are just so many wonderful things to look at and pretend to buy. Still looking for dat classic millennium falcon tho
Some of the bigger fandoms like Game of Thrones and Doctor Who have their own product sections near the front near the glass displays if you're looking for something specific
Geeks paradise! Saw a lot if Walking Dead, Dr Who, Supernatural goodies, plus lots of vintage memorabilia and shelves and shelves of books and comic books.
At the top of the mecha comic shop food chain. So much wonderful comic book/pop culture goodness.

Forbidden Planet is pretty amazing! :)
Pretty much everything here is awesome. Nice way to spend some time if you're a tourist
I guess if your not caucasian you won't be greeted and you might (if your lucky) be followed...
You HAVE to come here for Free Comic Book day
Not what it used to be. Singles selection can be tricky, but most desirable trades are in stock. Seems to focus more on toys, accessories, etc. lately, and feels less homey than their old location.
Take a deep breath of the chronic
Comics are great and tons of figurines! And action figures! Very nerdy store!
This place is the worst. Overpriced tourist crap.

Nerd heaven in NYC.
Great comic shop, lots of merchandise.
Too many backpacks in too narrow aisles, but fills a big nerd hole in the Union Square area. Better than their old corner lot, but wish they'd open up the basement level for back issues.
Great spot for T-shirts, service is also good
Great range of comics. Check out the second floor
One of the largest and best comic book stores in the NY area. Lots of comics but also all kinds of merchandise to waste your money on.
One of the better comic shops in NYC. Great selection.
Forbidden Planet no longer gives students a 10% discount :(
Cool store. Bored? Come here
The best comic/sci-FI store ever...hands down!
Got a MLP mystery mini fig that turned out to be broken. The manager was super nice and understanding and let me get a new one! Great place and great people!
Next to Union Square, it's a fantastic scenic spot for comic fans and geeks! A must in NYC!
Awesome spot. Super organized wide range of collections. Can get lost easily here, you may enter but escape is futile!
"New" location is smaller than previous, but better organized. Great selection!
Ask for DANI 👉👉the wiz of Books ! :)
It's incredible I love it
Fun store and some of their figurines are actually at a really great price.
The female associate who wears the fedora everyday is not only really cute but knowledgeable as hell. Very helpful, knows her stuff, anyone know her name?
So much more than your basic comic bookstore, Forbidden Planet carries many types of genre literature, including some special editions of the greats that you can buy for lower prices!
