Owner Jim "Prince" Hughes has been imagineering the kaiju eiga mindsets of punk rockers, Japanese monster fans, and tin toy collectors for nearly three decades, and Atomic City remains the single coolest store in the state of Texas, bar none. Aisles upon aisles crammed with movie memorabilia, animé ephemera, Brit-punk T's, and shockingly brilliant gear for every rudeboy/rudegirl may make you want to lie down and take a nap afterward (or take the way-back machine to the nearest Clash gig), but we guarantee you your dreams will never be the same.
