trenchcoatedson: Comic books!

I've recently taken an interest in comic books. So, I was wondering, what are some good comic book shops in the area? Does one even exist?

I'm also interested in shops that sell manga.

Sorry if this has been asked before!

Rock Bottom Comics has been around a long, long time. Alan, the owner, is quite the "comic book educator" should you find yourself in need of tons of reading material.

They're located on N Garland Ave across the street from Harp's in that little shopping center. Next to a laundry mat, I believe.

Also, there's Vintage Stock, but they only supply new releases and various popular items.

"Vintage Stock, but they only supply new releases and various popular items."

Now that they've moved to Fayetteville anyway - they used to be semi-awesome in Springdale. *pout* Not sure, but Vintage Stock in Rogers might still be worth checking out though.

Yeah, it's not a bad place. But if you're looking for a huge collection/variety of comic books/manga, Rock Bottom is your place.

Every time I come home, I go there just to marvel. ^^

They also have a used paperback collection. Not bad either, and I believe you can sell your old paperbacks to him. Dunno if he still does that.

Oooh, North Garland- I know exactly where that is! It's only like 5 minutes away from my apartment! If I wasn't disabled, I could walk there, haha.

Really good to hear that the owner is knowledgeable about comics. I could use that, considering I'm really new to the world of comic books and don't know much about them. :)

Thanks!

Been to both places. I'm currently am shopping at Vintage stock. If they don't carry what your looking for they will order it for you. The staff are pretty nice and they have a lot of other cool merchandise.

By the way, what titles are you looking to get?
Peace.

I'm not sure really. A few of my friends gave me a laundry list of titles and I'm still picking through them, figuring out what I want to read. The one title I know I want to read so far is the Batman title Arkham Asylum. :D
