Indie Interview

Comics are great and it’s socially acceptable to be a nerd and for girls to like comics in this modern day. Movies have helped a little, too.

Sharing our love of comic books with the communities we exist within. Being here for two decades has allowed us to watch people grow from children to parents and bring it back full circle with their own little comic fans.

Staying plugged in to the comic world is a full time job of reading and learning. As we’ve grown and opened new stores, managing growth and making sure our employees are taken care of has become a great consideration.

Ann Arbor is a book town and we think that comic books are as vibrant and varied as all of the storytelling mediums. Our goal is to put them front and center with all the other bestselling paper paged entertainment and learning choices. It’s important to keep people engaged with the real physical world in a day when it’s so easy to just fall into the internet.

A bright, enthusiastic funhouse teeming with art and writing, working in concert, to dazzle your heart and mind. We love comics and we love you.
