Visiting my local comic book shopPosted: March 14, 2012
After watching an episode on Comic Book Men on AMC, I was inspired to visit one of my local Comic Book shops just to catch up on current DC and Marvel storylines.
After Scanner through their goods and asking for the store associate for recommendations, I decided to pick up issue #4 of the Avenging Spider-Man series (for $3.99). On the plus side. It includes a code that allow you to read a digital copy of the comic on a iPad, Android tablet or Computer. Avenging Spider-Man features stories of Spider-Man teaming up with other Marvel characters. Next issue is Spider-Man teaming up with Captain America.
The layout of the shop is quite standard. New releases near the entrance, Marvel and DC have their own sections. They have a display case full of statues of comic book and Pop-culture characters. More comics at discount prices in open boxes. Collected issues in trade paperback are also available. They appear to hold regular HeroClix games in-store Friday nights. The store associate the day I paid them a visit was very helpful. Store info is below.
