This small shop packs a mighty punch, thanks to its bright, inviting interior and well-organized selection. Eschewing the stereotype of the musty, dusty and cramped comic store, Detroit Comics appeals to both comic newbies and die-hard lifers by creating an easily navigated space stocked with the latest titles, and staffed by welcoming, comics-loving folks. The shop also offers occasional events and a subscription service that gives members 10 percent off new comic books, trade paperbacks and action figures.
