"Tucked away in the heart of Chicago's historic Andersonville, AlleyCat Comics provides a friendly atmosphere where everyone feels welcome. If you're ever board, come hang with us...we can't wait to meet you!"
"For too long comics have been relegated to be for a certain type of person, whether it be through Hollywood stereotyping or self-inflicted by drawing figures with unrealistic body types. Did you know that there have been comic books that are not about superheroes, and that are made for people who aren’t caricatures that appear on the Big Bang Theory; made by people like you or I, with discerning interests. Anyone Comics wants to introduce comics to everyone."
"Fantom Comics was established in 2005 with twin goals. One: To offer a wide selection of comic books and graphic novels to comic book fans. Two: To introduce this under appreciated yet quintessentially American art form to the public at large. Fantom Comics is an open, inclusive store that welcomes all people, even if you've never read a comic book in your life. So whether you're a fan who wants to talk comics, a novice who wants to learn comics, or you're just looking for the right gift for the comic book devotee in your life, we are always ready to help. Fantom Comics is located in scenic Washington, DC, and easily accessible by Metro's Red Line via the Dupont Circle stop."
"We welcome collectors and players of all ages and experience levels. Nurturing new collectors and players is one of the points we pride our shop on the most. Not only is our collection of comics and cards for sale, but we also buy collections you may not want anymore. Russ, owner of Mill Geek Comics, will tell you what they are worth and will either trade, pay or provide store credit for things he is interested in. Russ and everyone who works here at the shop have been geeks their entire life! We celebrate all that is geek and are always eager to meet others who share our interests. Mill Geek Comics is a haven for geeks! Please come by the shop and see for yourself what an inviting place it is."
