I always love going into the Dark Side! They have a huge inventory, and friendly staff. The gaming area in back is large. A great place for friends to play whatever game they are into!

Large and spacious store, massive amount of space for gaming. Decent array of singles from Magic in the case, prices however are quite high and they use the same computer based inventory that drives m...e nuts from some other stores. The person behind the counter was friendly and tried to help me find a common I wanted from an old set, but their boxes behind the counter were completely disorganized and he couldn't find the box for the set I was looking for. There was no buyer in the store who could buy cards at the time. There were still cards in the case that apparently had already been sold. Overall, definitely a great space/venue for gaming but not a location I would necessarily want to do a lot of business with. :-/ See More

The store itself is very pleasant and I've always received great help/advice on purchasing comics. They let you create a pull list so you don't have to ever worry about missing out on a comic come rel...ease day! The gaming part of the store is nice and spacious. A lot of the players seem like regulars and when its packed in there, it can be a bit intimidating to new comers. Everyone I've talked to though has been very nice. They can get busy at times, but It doesn't take away from customer service. I've needed help while they were busy and the employee never made me feel rushed or a burden and assisted me until everything I needed was resolved before moving on to the next customer. Thanks guys! You rock. See More

These folks are always good to me. I come from out of town, & they hold my stuff for weeks before even asking. And they are always accommodating. People in the store always seem to have a bit of knowl...edge & if they dont, there's usually someone there who does. Best around See More

I've been a long time regular and will continue to be for years to come. The store is not only great at keeping games and items well stocked with a friendly staff to assist you, but is also striving to be even better.

The real selling point of this store isn't it's products in my opinion, but the community. What good are games without people to play them with? There are groups for almost anything you could want to play, such as dnd, magic the gathering, Warhammer and much more.

If your in Sarasota and looking for comics, tcgs or games. Look no further!

Went for the begining of their lecture series last night and it was very interesting! Not once did they try to push product on you to buy, it was just a genuine let's learn and discuss what we know ab...out comics and heros we love.

I really like the new location as well. Nice and big for everything they have!

I will definitely be back for the discussions and excited for the book club. And will definitely be back to purchase :)

Thank you for a fun filled relaxed environment.

Came by on vacation to scope out the local comic shop scene and wasn't disappointed. It's a huge store with a good selection of new and old comics, lots of board games and plenty of room to play games.... This seems like the kind of store other shops aspire to be. See More

Visited this store yesterday and was very pleased. Aside from the great atmosphere and large selection of items, the staff was very friendly and was eager to help my family and me find games when ther...e is so much to choose from. There were things for kids to look at and play with which was very nice. Overall, this place is very fun and we can't wait to return and play game night! See More
