First time in there the past weekend and the whole experience was great, I can't believe I haven't been there before. It reminded me of the old school comic shops during my days in Chicago where the ...staff is cool, no pressure, music was just the right vibe and the deals were great. I'll be back soon. See More

Unfortunately I have never shopped here. However, having known the proprietor and her infectious endearing passion for everything she does. How could Alter Ego Comics not be 5 STARS!

Bad news friends! Due to some nasty weather near the warehouse, we will *NOT* be receiving comics tomorrow, and it's quite possible that we will not be receiving them at all until next week. As of right now, they are stuck in Mississippi and no UPS trucks are moving in or out.
We will keep you posted when the boxes are on the move and we have a better idea of when they may arrive.
Sorry for the inconvenience!
