Comic Shop - Book, Marvel, DC - Online
Comic books, or in more technical terms 'sequential art' or 'graphic novels', are a form of visual art that was originally meant to illustrate caricatures and to entertain through stories, but today comic books have evolved to include many subgenres.
A comics shop provides customers with the newest comic releases as well as back issues, rarer collector's comics, and underground editions. A good comics shop has something for everybody. Kid's comics like Tin Tin, Batman Adventures, or Asterix, not to mention Archie comics are very popular. But comics are not necessarily humourous as the name might suggest. Comics can be serious and dramatic, both thematically and visually. For example, the general dark color scheme of Batman comics, and the emphasis on shadows, creates a highly dramatic and tense atmosphere for the action to unfold in. Also, the literary suspense technique of breaking the action off at the best part was a common comic book device, and still is today across many mediums and genres, meant to entice people enough to want to know what happens next and to buy the next issues of the comics.
Apart from the obvious mountains of comics, some comic shops may also sell merchandise, role playing game cards (RPG), and 'How To' Comic book drawing guides for beginners. They may also supply popular graphic novels such as Dark Horse, Marvel, DC, Spiderman or Manga series. Whatever book or art style you like best, online comic shops provide an extensive selection of books, including Spiderman book, Superman book, Marvel and DC to satisfy newbies and comic experts alike.
Shop at an online comic shop or visit your local comic shop for the newest releases of your favorite comics, newspaper comic strip collections (like Calvin and Hobbes, Mutts, Dilbert, Zits, and Peanuts), archive editions, superhero reprint collections, and cool merchandise.
