ACME Comics, Cards, and Collectibles is an incredible comic shop with an even better backstory. Owner Terry and his wife built the now massive superstore from a one table dream at a local flea market. What started from small beginnings in the 80’s has transitioned into one of the top comic shops in the country. With a selection like none other and an amazing layout to display it, watch as Terry, Todd, and Enzo call on some of their superhero friends to give you on a guided tour around the ACME Superstore.
The shop was nominated for an Eisner award in 2014.
The Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards are considered the “Oscars” of the comics world. Named for the pioneering comics creator and graphic novelist Will Eisner, the awards are given out in more than two dozen categories during a ceremony each year at Comic-Con International: San Diego. -From comic-con.org
