In 2019 our store was selected by our fellow comic book retailers as having the best graphic novel section in Diamond Distributors Best Retail Practices Awards. The Diamond Retail BPAs seek to identify and honor comic book specialty retailers that demonstrate best practices in their stores, thereby offering their patrons and community a consistently appealing shopping experience. We feel honored to receive this award.

Hey, come check it out the selection for yourself. See why some customers refer to us as the "Graphic Novel Store."
