We are now taking pre-orders for THE LONG CON from Oni Press, due out in July!
"Five years ago, a cataclysmic event obliterated everything within a fifty mile radius of the Los Spinoza Convention Center-including the attendees of Long Con, the world's biggest (and longest) comic convention. But unknown to the outside world, the con-goers not only survived, they kept the convention going. When proof of their survival surfaces, reporter Victor Lai is sent to investigate-after all, he was covering the con that fateful day and escaped mere minutes before everything went kablooie... abandoning his nerdy pal Dez in the process. So clearly he's the perfect person for the job, and he won't get trapped inside like some kinda idiot. Right?"

New versions of classics (like the upcoming Ninja Turtles cartoon) can be fun, but nothing replaces the charm of an original!! Classic Ninja Turtles and Turtles in Time are both available at Super Marion Arcade!! Who's your favorite Turtle??

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!
