The unsightly strip mall exterior betrays little of the wonders waiting inside Kapow! Comics. Most of the comics are filed away neatly in drawers, making this shop feel much more spacious than its counterparts. Kapow! also offers a much-needed selection of graphic novels as well as toys (Heroclix especially), rare comics, and long boxes of comics for $1 each packed tight. The people behind the counter are knowledgeable and welcoming (shout out to Shane!), and they might even offer you a first-time-buyer's discount. Look out for an entire wall devoted to zombie comics.
