Profile

This tiny shop peddles a vast array of comic books, action figures, posters, T-shirts, and intricate figurines—or statues, as the staff respectfully calls them. Floor-to-ceiling shelves are packed full of action-figure boxes and comic-book spines, almost completely obscuring the wall. The devoted clientele spans children to grown men, who pop in to drop a few bucks on a Spider-man comic book or a few hundred on a one-foot-tall Superman statue. Though the store’s selection of contemporary graphic novels is limited, its extensive stash of vintage Marvel and DC comics and paraphernalia caters to throwback-superhero fans.
