Great place to find old comics and vintage toys. Lots of great stuff from my childhood past, like The Jetsons, The Flintstones, Planet of the Apes, Dr. Who, etc. Very large place with tons of merchandise. Definitely worth checking out if you're in the area.

We really loved this place. Breath of fresh air amoungst all the witch shops. My husband loved the huge never ending supply of comics. Really large selection of everything: anime, manga, comics, books. You name it! Really relaxed and laid back vibes!

A TV geeks paradise with a slant towards Japanese anime and Manga. Mind you it'll be cheaper to fly to Toyko and stock up. Take it from me. I was there last year.

Great shop for nerds. More than just comics, there's a lot of memorabilia and merchandise for TV shows and movies (Star Trek and Star Wars, for example), Japanese comics and anime, and of course American comics (Marvel, DC). Many interesting things to discover, and buy.
