Looking for sketchbooks, artbooks, comics, graphics, trade, or specific collectible items? If so, take a look at Comics Factory.
Day 93 of 365 Things To Do In Pasadena takes us to a world of graphics: Comics Factory!
This is one of the best comic places in Los Angeles! They have a large, diverse, and organized selection of trades, comics, and even merchandise (t-shirts and toys)!
The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The employees are welcoming and make you feel comfortable (not overbearing!). How many stores can you walk in to… say a couple words about a collectible graphic, and have a staff recognize the particular one you are interested in. That just shows a true expertise in comics!
What’s even better is the fact that REGULAR CUSTOMERS RECEIVE DISCOUNTS ON THEIR PURCHASES! So, if you’re really into comics… take advantage!
Oh… and don’t worry about your age! Everyone hits this popular store. There is a book to satisfy everyone.
Comics Factory has mainstream comics in one section, independent ones on another shelf, Manga, and Anime titles in the front. They have almost every comic compilation one could think of.
Also, look for a large board above their magazines to see a list of upcoming comic releases! It can be very helpful.
My suggestion is you go buy a couple of comic books, and head on over to Zankou Chicken for a delicious meal and read. 😀
