  • No, I would not go back!

This place confirms every awful stereotype about comic shops, and that's particularly true of the owner, a foul-mouthed cretin who thinks nothing of screaming about "f--king fa-gots" at 12:30 on a Wednesday with a store full of people. That aside, the store stocks lots of beat-up, shelf-worn trades and sells them as new, and the new releases are usually bent up and folded over on the racks. Go to Bergen, Rocketship, or any of Manhattan's better-run stores. (The girls who work there on weekends are helpful and nice, though!)

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
