We really enjoyed the store and staff as well as the eclectic selections. Kate Mooneyham the manager is exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly. Anyone who likes books will appreciate this alternative to Amazon and B&N.

Nice selection of back issue DC & Marvel. A fun place to just stroll around in and check things out. Friendly staff unafraid to smile and chat with customers. Winner, winner, read a book after diner!

Great bookstore for young and old. In addition to the comic books, there is a great treasure of books. Staff was incredibly nice. And the cat was there waiting. It is a must.

Personally, I just loved the fact that the book store had a cat inside :) I did buy some artwork related to the children's book, Corduroy though. It was nice to stop by and check out the selection.

Very wide selection. They even had some hard to find records. They had a lot of comic books, which would probably be nice if I knew more about comics.
