David Huang goes to this comic book store because he feels the owner, Dan, is going the extra mile to serve his customer, earn their business, and demonstrate his reliability and loyalty.

He writes:

There is always some form of significant discount or sale or promotion going on to keep bargain hunters on their toes and entice impulse purchasers or lower the barrier of entry for someone trying to get into something new. There’s also a game scene and events, but when Dewey’s puts on an event they bring in creators like Joe Kubert, Paul Levitz, and Jamal Ingle! However, aside from my own positive experiences shopping there, what really left an impression on me was watching Dan deal with a woman who came in with some comics found in their basement looking for a payday. He was patient, polite, informative, and offered earnest condolences to someone who would have likely been scorned, mocked, or rushed away elsewhere. She wasn’t going to bring him business or product, but he treated her with dignity and courtesy regardless, which really shouldn’t be noteworthy except that it sadly is in the comic retail biz all too often. Great service, selection, and presentation.

A Little Shop of Comics in Scotch Plains, NJ

Posted on 09 November 2011 by admin

A Little Shop of Comics

Featured Comic Book Store: A Little Shop of Comics
Where: Scotch Plains, NJ
Website: http://www.facebook.com/ALittleShopofComics

David Huang goes to this family owned and family friendly comic store because, they go out of their way to have events, raffles, and giveaways to create excitement about comics and their store.

He writes:

They have a vibrant game scene, lots of merchandise, and participate in things like having a store-exclusive IDW Godzilla variant cover or helping local creators out by giving them space to do signings and promote. Lately they’ve been discounting Marvel’s relaunch titles (like X-Men, Hulk, and the Point Ones) to help people get into them like they have with DC’s relaunch. It is the model retail store looking to cater to old fans and new comers alike without intimidation or neutering your store (okay, there’s no long boxes of moldy fifty cent back issues which the hardcore will miss, but they make up for it by clearly organizing and collecting entire runs and arcs in nice and neat sealed and sanitary bags sold at a reasonable price!). A great store for ANYONE to go to!

Comix Connection in Mechanicsburg, PA

Comix Connection

Featured Comic Book Store: Comix Connection
Where: Mechanicsburg, PA
Website: http://blog.comixconnection.com/
Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/comix.connection

Jon Fertenbaugh goes to Comix Connection because of their amazing and friendly customer service and selection.

He writes:

My local shop is called Comix Connecition in Mechanicsburg, PA. It’s been my shop since I started collecting comics in the early 90′s and one of the best shops I’ve ever been to. All the staff are really great and friendly, the selection is top notch and they will always help you find hard to get issues, and the sales and special events are always awesome. Whenever I travel I always try to check out local shops. I’ve been to Salt Lake and visited Dr. Volt’s and Back Cat Comics, both of which are nice, but I always check Comix Connection when I get home to make sure I didn’t miss anything.

If that wasn’t enough reason to check out Comix Connection, John shared with us this story:

On a personal note the guys at Comix Connections helped me out with the decorations for my wedding,. I’m getting married to my nerdly lady in October and she wanted to have comics be a big part of our the theme for our decorations. I bought a few issues out of the 2 for $0.99 bin and I was having a hard time reconciling my love of comics with my need to destroy comics for awesome decorations. I mentioned this off-handed to my Wednesday comic purveyor, Joe, and he promptly went to the back and gave me a huge stack of returns that were going to be destroyed anyway to do with as I pleased. Now I have tons of paper garlands, collages, and other fancy pants arts and crafts made out of various issues of Green Lantern, Batman Inc., and S.H.A.D.E. Everything looks really great without me having to feel too bad about destroying something I love. Needless to say it was super awesome of them and just reinforces the need to spend money at cool places like Comix Connection that actually care about there customers.

Chris Bradley highly recommends Brave New Worlds in Philadelphia because it is his favorite shop to talk about comics, amazing staff and great selections. They also select TPB’s weekly or monthly and mark them 1/2 off.

He writes:

Brave New Worlds is my absolute favorite shop. They’re doing things differently then a lot of other stores in the city. Last year they had a great scott pilgrim midnight sale/gathering for vol 5, they also have a midnight sale for Justice League #1 & Flashpoint #5 coming up. Monthly they have Comic Art Shows in they’re entrance hall, always with new and interesting art. They also do a weekly book club. It’s a great shop with great people and deserves to stick around.

Chris Bradly couldn’t leave out the other great comic book stores in Philadelphia and had this to say:

Showcase Comics [Bryn Mawr, just outside philly] – Great everything, environment, indie books, great random tpb sales, nice staff.

South Philly Comics – awesome talkative staff, 5 or 10% off subscriptions [I forget] good weekly DC & Marvel some and a fair share of indie stuff.

Atomic Comics - Great TPB selection, also good indie book selection. 10% off subscriptions

Fat Jacks Comic Crypt – the city favorite. great back issues, friendly staff, great indie selection.

Ontario Street Comics – strangest shop ever, has almost everything Marvel & DC no indie books but they bag and board everything and don’t charge tax or for the bags and boards. They also get a ton of every issue they order. Lots of other crazy memorabilia as well.
