Diamond Distributors BEST GRAPHIC NOVEL SECTION AWARD for 2019






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.

Escapist Comics Podcast

Have you listened to it, yet? LISTEN






Hosted by Escapist Comic Staff:Jessica Balboni and Jacob Rubin (who bears no resemblance to Jesse Hett in the picture), the Escapist Comics Podcast features reviews of the current week's comics and insightful and often comedic looks at comics today, comic book movies, tv, celebrities, and sometimes a bit of gossip. If it looks like a comic and smells like a comic, it's fair game. Many of the podcasts feature comic creator interviews. Those who have appeared on the podcast include Rick Remender, Brian Wood, Alex de Campi, Becky Cloonan, Matteo Pizzolo, Matthew Rosenberg, Babs Tarr, Jason Latour and countless others. (well maybe it's a number you can count to but that doesn't sound anywhere as good as "countless", does it?)



Start a Pullbox






We'd like to than everybody for your support during this hard time. Another way you can help the store is to start a pullbox. Having a pullbox guarantees that you will get the comics you want. They will be waiting here for you when they arrive. This allows us to order better, which will help us greatly when re-open.

Program Details:

  • We pull and hold the comics for you every Wednesday.
  • Free bags and boards
  • No minimum, but if you order 5 or more titles per month.......
  • You get a FREE copy of Previews and ...
  • You can pre-order from Previews and get a 20% discount on those pre-orders except for new comics and selected toys.
