Description: Thankfully they do not sell defective Acme products!

First off, this place has closed since my visit. 😦 But I think it was more the owner just wanted to retire. I can respect that and I would rather hear that news than know it was due to the economy.

So my friends and I popped in here to see what they offered. They offered a large selection of comics, graphic novels, action figures, odds and ends. They seemed to mostly specialize in DC/Marvel/Superheros, so if you were in to that, you could easily find something in here that would suit your needs.

We took photos with a soccer fan storm trooper that greeted you when you walked in the door. Overall, a great little store if you needed that geek itch scratched. On a side note, this place is not related to the Acme Comics in Peoria, IL. Same name, very similar stores, completely different owners. I thought they were the same and the cashier told me it was just a coincidence.

Hopefully a new comic/thrift store will come along and take it’s place. I truly believe the world needs more geeky places. 😀
