Small space, but the best selection of comics in the DC area. Always impressed by what they have in stock, and I'm always walking in and finding something new and interesting here.

Only took off a star because there aren't any back issues to speak of. Otherwise, this place is great. Friendly staff and a very broad selection, from Big Two to underground.

Every now and again you travel to a place that lets you know how fortunate you have been in life. I have grown up with comics and have spent countless dollars at comic book stores across the east coast. Every one of the shops that I went to were awesome because each one of the owners/workers has been polite, helpful, funny, and/or fun. I make it a point during my vacations to find the local comic book shop and try to spend somewhere between $50-$100 to support them. That all stopped the day I went to Big Planet Comics.... I looked on-line for a comic book shop while I was in DC and Big Planet was the only thing that came up. Immediately, I picked up a cab and spent $15 without a care because of the excitement of another comic book shop. After spending a few minutes browsing the current comic section (which was OK, not amazing) I started looking through the trades. I was excited to find that they had Warren Ellis' Gravel, and I was about to pick up the first three trades (about $75). Then I noticed that they had Brian Woods (note the W in the last name) Demo Volume Two. I sat down because since Wood begins with W, he was on the bottom shelf, and since I am 6'3, it was much more comfortable to sit down briefly to peruse through the other Wood titles. I could not have been sitting for more than 3 minutes before the lady working behind the counter rudely said "could you not sit on the floor, thanks" and added an expert roll of the eyes. I understand that comic shops make money when people buy comics, and i was not sitting on the floor free-reading comic books, I was looking through their Brian Wood collection seeing if there was something new I might want to buy, and I wasn't sitting there long enough to even get comfortable. (WOOD, Why must your last name begin with a letter near the end of the alphabet!?!?! J/K) The one thing I did like was that they had some of the trades arranged by writer. I loved this because I saw some things that Grant Morrison and Alan Moore wrote that I am going to go out and purchase, SOMEWHERE ELSE OF COURSE! If you are a comic fan, save your money and support stores that appreciate, hell maybe not appreciate but at least respect your business.

Pleasant store, nice tpb selection, although no back issues, no bins and not many older or unusual finds.
