Scranton, PA – You know what makes Scranton so great? It’s the variety. I’ve written about the Rose Garden and Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen. Today, we add Scranton Comics to the list of places that makes CH great.
Now, I must admit, I don’t lie in bed surrounded by a stack of comics. I have my own eclectic tastes that run more to Motortrend Magazine and classic authors like Alexander Dumas.
But the store on West Franklin is a fabulous place to visit. It’s easy to lose an hour browsing the titles, looking at the artwork and flipping the pages of some of the stories. Great place to stop after taking the kids to Kidzu, the Planetarium or the farmers market.
Sometimes, I just stop in on my own when I’m in the neighborhood. The artwork in comics and graphic novels is so incredibly vivid and full of life. It’s a collector’s paradise with something for every taste.
Events are a scene and attract young and old, boys and girls, folks tall and small, beautiful and sublime. In short, a cross-section of all the people who make Scranton a great place. You’d be surprised a who’s a comic book fan.
Scranton Comics, proudly independent, claims the mantel of “oldest comic book specialty store in the Triangle.” They also carry books and gifts.
