    So much more than your basic comic bookstore, Forbidden Planet carries many types of genre literature, including some special editions of the greats that you can buy for lower prices!

    Chances are they'll have exactly what you're looking for. If you don't know what you're looking for, they probably have that, too.

    Do you love comics? This is the spot to go to when its downtown part of the city. If you're in midtown Manhattan, check out The Midtown Comics at 200 W 40th Street New York, NY 10018.

    Get organized and keep stocked! FP while a great institution needs to work on keeping graphic novels in stock. I hate going and seeing the same books over and over. Like The Boys novels 2,4, and 6.

    Best spot to check out newest issues or latest merch from your favorite Comic hero. Travel light, save the staff the hassle of having to check your crap. Ideal place to get last minute gifts for guys.
