Well I said I would take some pictures but I'm home for break right now and happened to stumble upon a video, this is Ravenswood Comics in Utica, NY, where I attend the little sister school to Syracuse University, Utica College... Great store, great people, if you are in Utica ever you should pop in and see what you can grab... If they end up stumbling upon this post, I better get some store credit :P lol

I miss The Comic Stop in Lynnwood, but my all time favorite shop in the PNW was Golden Age Collectables (even though it tends to be bursting with tourists because of the location).

Hi everyone,

My favorite resource for all my comics and graphic novels that I buy and enjoy reading is eXpertComics: www.expertcomics.com/. I suggest you guys to take a look on their website, I always have a great experience with my shipping and stuff. I would have loved to show you pictures, but I always buy my comics on the internet, so at least I am showing you guys a good website.

I hope you guys will enjoy it as much as I do !

Have a nice day !

I love this thread and have gotten much more out of it than I thought possible. Me and the Mrs. have actually talked about doing a road trip vacation someday where we stop at some of the interesting stores we've seen posted here. As always Thank You everyone who has participated in this thread.

I don't think it really matters if you have a 'local' store, I go to the same store as up there and it takes around an hour to get there.

Damn! You people got some awesome shops you go to! Mine is pretty decent. Imagine a small brick rectangle that is half comics and half coin and jewlery pawn shop, that's Collector's Palace! Haha...it's not that bad, but compared to many of the pictures on this thread it looks like some guy's basement. The guys there are nice, but only one of them really knows anything about comics. I never really see more than one person there for comics as the jewelry shop seems to be their big draw. I've talked to a few other comic buyers who go there, but I rarely run into them. It's the closest one to me, though there are a few 30+ minutes away I'd like to check out, but this one does me just fine! Here's the best two images of it found online!

Richard's Comics and Collectables in Greenville, South Carolina.

It's good to see Richard's Comics and Collectables represented on this thread, and it's especially nice to see them mentioned so early in the thread. For the mystic minded and insanely curious among you, here's a couple of handy links, one to the store's website and the other to the store's Facebook page.

http://www.richards-collectables.com

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Richards-Comics-Collectables/146085475454721

I only visit the store very infrequently, bordering on the rare. It is better men and women than I, that keep Richard in business. Thank God for them!

I am no fan of the store front. It's definitely got a better - and more believable - disguise than Clark Kent. Fortunately, they've got a Bat Signal in the window, beckoning unto comic book passers-by. And that sign - oh, that main sign that looms over the store from above. It's legible. I'll give it that. But, it's just too small, and lacks imagination. Of course, signs don't come cheap, these days. They remind me a lot of comic books, in that regard. But, hey! At least the sign is there. At least Richard keeps flying the colors of Comicdom. Just be careful not to miss it, if you drive by.

While I'm playing the role of the villain, and critiquing a few things that I don't like about the store, let's take those powers of criticism inside. That's right! Right past that plain Jane front door, into the inner sanctum of The Richard, himself.

It's just so small inside.

Or maybe it just seems that way to me. There's just soooOOOOooo much stuff inside, that it really just cries out in collective screams for more space to manifest itself in. Through his manipulation of the mystical arts, Richard has apparently managed to contain an explosion of interesting stuff in an artificial shell that is coincidentally just exactly the same amount of space as the inside of this store. It's strange. It's bizarre. It's inexplicable. But, by God, he's done it!

It really is a wonderful little place. I wish that it were a little more brightly lit, but it's not dark, if that's a concern. It's not a place of gloom. The staff isn't populated by freaks straight out of some second-tier rogue's gallery. They've always let me browse to my heart's content. I always feel a little guilty when I leave without buying something - which, thus far, has been always. It's fortunate for me that it's about a twenty minute drive to get there. Even now, I hear it calling to me.

It's located inside the city limits of the City of Greenville, South Carolina, for those souls who like to wander. That city can always certainly stand to have a few more superheroes. That's for sure! But, then again, what city couldn't?

I live in a small town and I dont think a comic book shop ever existed here. Come to think of it, we got about 20 in this country and they mostly contain 30 year old The Phantom, Donald Duck and Beetle Baily comics anyway. Sad really..

So heres mine..

Nice seeing all these wonderful comic shops!

Comicxhub here in the Philippines is my source for all things comics:

But even though I've been buying from them for more than a year now, (they opened just in 2011) I've never actually been to their store!

It's because I live on a separate island around 300 miles away, so I've had my comics shipped to me from them. Thankfully, they have an online service. And they give free shipping! How awesome is that?

Plus, they hold events! Homegrown artists like Dexter Soy, Mico Suayan, and Leinil Yu show up a lot for signings.
