With the city’s overall scarcity of comic shops, picking the best isn’t all that difficult. Nonetheless, Chicago Comics consistently stands as the go-to shop for its wide range of titles and welcoming, knowledgeable staff. From mainstream to independent to small local presses, Chicago Comics has a myriad of regularly stocked single issues, graphic novels and trade paperbacks to choose from. And with an impressive overstock of twenty-five-cent comics—including some Alan Moore “Tom Strong” treasures—it’s tough to leave empty-handed.
