Where to buy comics?

Asked by bmhit1991 (246 points ) May 25th, 2009

Where is a good place to buy comics? I never was into them, and don’t know what places around me sell them. I think they could probably be very cool. I might want to pick up a few issues of something just to see if I like it. So are there any big name stores around me that have them that I never knew had them? Thanks!

Where are you? We have no idea where “around me” might be.

i mean just a big name store. Like, I don’t think Wal-mart has comics. Or books a million. But are there any big name stores like those that do carry them?

I’ve heard of these crazy things called comic book stores. And another crazy thing called google.

Where I live (Northern California) there are small specialty shops that sell comic books. They may be combined with other things such as magazines, games, and hobby items. It varies. I don’t know of any large chains. But the category of “graphic novels” seems to be broader and might extend to chains such as Barnes & Noble, as well as to Amazon (for example, the Sandman series).

As others say, researching your own area will get you further than posting a question on a global resource without specifying a location.

I am in Nor Cal as well. We have Flying Colors comics here.
Pick up “The Dark Knight Returns”. It’s 20 years old, but it is the best graphic novel ever.

Try Discount Comic Book Service.

They gave all sorts of stuff including current issues at discounted prices. They have a flat shipping rate too.

I think it’s dcbservice.com
