New York comic shops / August comic cons


Im taking my wife to NYC end August for her 40th.
We are both sci fi and comic con fans.
Is there any members from there that can recommend comic shops to visit.
Also is there any comic cons to visit end August / beginning September ?



Midtown Comics has three locations including one at West 40th Street just south of Times Square, one next to Grand Central Station, one one in the Wall Street area. They have a huge selection of comics, manga, trades and back issues, and lots of collectible stuff from action figures to shot glasses.

St Marks Comics is on St Marks Place on the Lower East Side (my favorite neighborhood for food, drinks, and just enjoying the ambience). Very old-school in a good way.

There’s a Forbidden Planet on Broadway just south of Union Square, but I wouldn’t recommend it unless you’re also visiting The Strand two doors away. The Strand is known as a used book store, but it carries a lot of graphic novels usually at generous discounts.


Yeah that’s pretty much the long and short of it.


Hi thanks very much for this.
Any comic cons end august ?


New York Comic Con (the big one) is in October.


Speaking of NYC comic stores, some sad news…
