Cartoon afficionados will rub their eyes in disbelief over this tiny wonder-emporium of comic strips, graphic novels and the latest serials. Arkham Comics supplies a dazzling, tight collection of classics, independent editions, latest arrivals and a few of those rare, discontinued and bookish gems you might not find elsewhere. Best to drop in early, if you’re in the mood for quietly rummaging the overwhelming miscellany of comics, because the afternoons swell with cartoon-seekers, and Arkham’s six square-meters of a store can get rather packed.
The service and advice of the staff is sincere and considerate—they are cool, kind folks who read and love the books in their shop and will happily help the comics-clueless find a glossy about bandits or fairies, dead heroes or zombies. Arkham Comics is an indispensable stop for all forever-young cartoon nerds whose hearts beat for this delicate, colorful graphic art form; be sure to visit their über-sharp blog for all the latest.
