The Captain America shield used as a door handle is your first clue that Forbidden Planet is no ordinary comic book store. You’re about to experience one of the world’s largest collections of comics, graphic novels, science fiction, anime, posters, games, movie memorabilia, and more, and that little tickle you feel is just your inner child jumping for joy. Bring your friends, because whether you’re with a Doctor Who fan or an X-Men aficionado, you’ll all find something you just can’t live without. Keep up with the latest issues of all the hottest comics, or fill in the gaps in your collection with a stroll through the classics. There’s nothing wrong with reminiscing with your friends over Batman comics from a bygone era. When you come here, it’s hard not to start acting like a kid again, so you might even find yourselves duking it out with Spider-Man and Green Goblin figurines.
