THE TRADITIONAL COMIC BOOK STORE WITH A MODERN FLAIR
The day I read my first comic book at the age of 14, I had the dream of my very own comic book store. In the past, the comic book shop or comics in general, were seen as an underground kind of medium. Today comic books have become part of popular culture, I have brought the comic book shop from the background to the foreground. My passion for the art that is comic books, drives me to continue to showcase comic books to everyone, not just the enthusiast. The comic book and the graphic novel has crossed mediums many times, Movies, TV shows and they have been the subject pieces of artwork, all interpreting the source material in different ways. They are cemented now into our pop culture and I would like to invite you all to experience what I have experienced since that day I picked up my first comic book.
