Meltdown Comics & Collectibles
What it is:

Why it's cool:
Unlike some specialty shops, Meltdown has a legacy of meeting customers where they are. In other words, even someone looking to buy their first comic is welcome.
You should know:
In addition to the selection of comics and collectibles, Meltdown hosts a variety of live events (screenings, stand-up, podcast tapings, talks, etc.) almost every day of the week. Check their site to find one that suits you.
