It’s the largest retailer of comic books, graphic novels, Manga (Japanese comics) and related collectibles in the country, if not the world, and it has the alternate universes its customers crave.

Midtown Comics celebrates the release of The Dark Knight Rises with a very special signing with writer Brandon T. Snider for his book The Dark Knight Manual at Midtown Comics Downtown Thursday July 26th from 6-7pm. Don’t miss it!
The Dark Knight Manual by Brandon T. Snider
In 2005, filmmaker Christopher Nolan redefined Batman for a new generation with Batman Begins, followed in 2008 by The Dark Knight, and now 2012’s conclusion to the trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises. Here, for the first time, is an in-world exploration of Christopher Nolan’s Batman: The Dark Knight Manual, the definitive guide to his tools, vehicles, and technologies.
Following the destruction of Wayne Manor, Bruce Wayne began to assemble key sketches, diagrams, observations, and other top-secret documents germane to becoming Batman; he then entrusted this manual to his faithful butler, Alfred. Every defining moment is detailed here, charting Wayne’s collaborations with Lucius Fox at Wayne Enterprises on the latest cutting-edge technology.
Featuring removable documents, including the design and capability of the famed utility belt, the hi-tech functions of Batman’s cowl, and every detail of his amazing arsenal of weapons and gadgets, The Dark Knight Manual reveals how Bruce Wayne operates as Gotham’s greatest protector.
This month’s book will be The Art of Betty and Veronica, and editors Craig Yoe and Victor Gorelick will be there to discuss the book with the club! If that’s not enough to entice, free donuts will be served!
