I could use another comic shop...but after close to two decades- the service, knowledge, and attention to detail is worth the hour and half drive! These guys (and gals) know my preferences and are quick to let me know of titles and items I may be interested in...It's become so easy that my wife even enjoys going there (and that's saying a lot!)

Captain Blue Hen Comics has, over the past several years, become a favorite and frequent haunt of mine. The staff is courteous and knowledgeable, and the array of product, from vintage/current comics to niche comics and pop culture collectibles, is vast. If they don't have a given item, they likely have a means to get it for you, and they've always put the customer ahead of the custom when it comes to recommendations. When you want to talk with staff who's more current on comics culture than your average blogger or internet news site, you go to CBH.

Great local comic book shop. If you don't see a print available for newly released or current comic, these guys/gals have no problem ordering it for you.

Been going to Captain Blue Hen for over 2 years now and they are the best. Great selection of new and old books, plenty of trades, dollar books, etc. Staff is always friendly and know most of the customers by name. The store is big as comic stores go and they have creator signings a few times a year. Always make sure to show up on Free Comic Book Day because they have tons of fun stuff.
