Best Comics Or Specialty Books

TIE: Austin Books & Comics; Dragon's Lair Comics & Fantasy

It's like trying to figure out who'd win a fight: Superman or The Mighty Thor? Both these popular stores are stocked to the rafters with comics, comics, comics, and books about comics. Ranging from silly-animal fanzines and superhero compilations to adult-themed graphic novels and indie alterna-views, flanked by figurines of vampires and elves and robots, tended by folks who live this stuff and could easily tell you, for instance, the current market value of Journey Into Mystery #83. Looking for Eightball? Artbabe? Jimmy Corrigan? Seek, and ye shall find.
