Comic Book Culture NYC

I don’t know how many readers actually frequent comic book stores (I don’t), but I recently visited St. Mark’s Comics with my little neighbor William, and we were both blown away (he more so than I of course!).  From the actual comic books to graphic novels, the action figures to the clothing, there is something in these stores for everyone, I guarantee it.  Whether you seek them out, or simply find yourself in the neighborhood and need to kill some time, go check out some of these great NYC comic book stores listed below and let your inner nerd run free!  I starred by favorites …
