New York Comic Con may have just ended, but it doesn’t mean people can’t find spaces to browse, squeal, and subsequently buy comic books around the country. Flavorpill rounded up the country’s 10 finest comic shops.
Here are our two hometown favorites: Forbidden Planet in New York City: They stock a wide variety of comics, Japanese Manga, and great comic-related items such as toys and t-shirts. Bergen Street Comics in Brooklyn: Dubbed the most “zen” comic shop, this store services comic fans in Park Slope.
Right down the street from Forbidden Planet is the huge Strand Bookstore. A little more walking brings you to the Union Square branch of Barnes & Noble where author events take place three to five times a week. After a short subway ride, you emerge in the Park Slope area of Brooklyn, close to cultural stops like the Brooklyn Botanical Garden and the Brooklyn Museum.
If a cross-country trip is more your style, the other names listed would make great pit stops.
