About Our Shop

Favorite Recent Comic Book: Black Murder Mysteries

What has been your best promotion or event?  Free Comic Book Day

What recent changes have you made in the store?  Expanded into a whole new space!  We opened a new flagship store one mile from our Freret store that’s 3 times the size, so we’ve been able to keep expanding comics and GNs.

What steps have you taken to expand your customer base or to reach out to individuals unfamiliar with your store or comics in general?  Facebook advertising for product lines like Gundam models and our increasing Silver Age selection.

What are your plans for the near future?  Keep tightening up the new Calhoun St. space, expand our gaming and other product lines at Freret St.

What superpower would you most like to have?  To either multiply myself or to add another 12 hours to the day.
