It all started in living room with glitter on the popcorn ceiling and shag carpet on the floor. I come sliding into my favorite place, directly in front of the tv, with snack in hand. I was a daring kid to be watching the tv so close....I could have went blind.

Growing up in the 70's with these awesomely cheesey but highly entertaining programs, my life was imprinted early with comics. I love the artwork, the colors and the underlying theme of good verses evil.

So we are sharing our love for comics and hope others will find their favorite superhero or villain in our shop.
