What People Say About Us?

This comic book shop has amazing prices. I would recomend it to anyone. The prices are very generous and there always seems to be something new waiting to come home every time I go there. I highly recomend it.

Score T.

This is shop is so cool. John has some great collectable figures and oddities, along with a big selection of comics and “old school” sci-fi books. Plus he’s an awesome guy. He also is the vanguard promoter for the Comic Con that is twice yearly, Albany Comic Con, in Colonie and Wolf Rd.

Jac G.

The guy was awesome. It may be a small store but he has a lot of older comics.

Bobby L.

Great place for anything vintage.

Michael C.

Matt and Jon are the best. Always a pleasant experience in here.


I love going into EA. The only comic store you need!

Matthew F.

Been visiting for over a decade. Always a great selection and always happy to see us, from out first visit to our hundredth. If I lived closer I would be a weekly pull lister here. Been to comic shops from Massachusetts to Ohio and this is my favorite!
