    There are some items tgat are suposed to be exclusives (comic-con for an instance) that you can actually get here. Other than that, Anazon or Barnes and Noble carry the same TPBs

    membership discounts are A+, but avoid the Times Square location if you don't want to deal with crowds of tourists.

    The customer rewards points only apply to comics and books--not other merchandise, which is bizarre. Store credit should be store credit.
