Welcome back to a fantabulous…NEW STORE IN NYC!

Midtown Comics opens its new store Downtown on Wednesday, November 10th, serving up all the comics, graphic novels, collectibles, and all the other great swag you’d expect, all nestled within NYC’s historic financial district. There are lots of iconic NYC locations to visit while you’re down there, including Ground Zero, Wall Street, South Street Seaport, and Trinity Church (remember the cool scenes in the basement in National Treasure?). It’s all happening Downtown!

To commemorate the grand opening, we offer 40% off ALL back issues (Downtown store only), starting November 10th. Also, we’ll present Jonathan Layman, signing Chew, on Thursday, December 16th, and Jim Lee signing Icons: The DC and Wildstorm Art of Jim Lee, on Sunday December 19th, at the new Downtown location (purchase of book is required to attend the Jim Lee event, and tickets are given out in all three of our locations, free with purchase). We’ll also give away valuable coupons at our Times Square and Grand Central stores, valid for special savings Downtown.

Store hours: our Downtown store will be open from 8:00AM to 8:00PM, Monday-Friday, which comes in handy for early bird shoppers, especially on Wednesdays. On Saturdays we’ll be open from 11:00AM to 9:00PM, Sundays from 12 noon to 7:00PM, just like our other locations.
