Best Comics Store

Strange Adventures Comic Bookshop

“It’s akin to theatre, film and to prose, but it’s a little different,” says perennial winner in this category, Strange Adventurer Cal Johnston, about his trade, comic books. He says that despite graphic novels and trade paperbacks finding their way into bookstores, the name “graphic novel” is something of a misnomer, and a hurdle to be cleared. “A graphic novel is just a comic book with a spine,” he says. But the “mainstreaming” of comics is a good thing, in most respects. “We’ve been opening a lot of eyes to what the medium has to offer." 5262 Sackville, 425-2140
