The earliest known comic book was called The Adventures of Obadiah Oldbuck. Originally published in several languages in Europe in 1837, among them an English version designed for Britain in 1941 Most comic book historians list the Clock as the first modern costumed superhero. He debuted in 1936, beating out Batman (1938) and Superman (1939). .
Captain Marvel proved to be one of the most popular superhero comics of the Golden Age, regularly outselling the adventures of Superman during the 1940s. The sales of comic books increased markedly during World War II. They were cheap, portable and had inspirational, patriotic stories of good triumphing over evil.

Couldn't be a better comic book store! Blows Bedrock City away! Very helpful staff. Rare books and comics abound. It will be the best comic book store in the Bay Area I'm sure of it. - William G
Came from out of town. Owners were very nice and helpful. Their vinyl collection ROCKED!! - Stacey S
Just left that place! Bought a handful of 80s comics and Choose Your Own Adventure books, and totally plan to go back for the rest (one day!) - Thom T.
Just gotta say today was the first time I ever entered into another Dimension.....it was nothing like the Anti-Matter universe, Negative Zone, Cancerverse, or even CSA's Earth 3! It was a warm and welcoming environment. I was greeted by Ben Jordan, a polite clerk/owner who did everything he could to make me feel welcome and apart of a community rather than a store that makes money. I have to say this is one of the better comic shops I've been to. There was an impressive array of comics (new and back issues), trade paperbacks, graphic novels, books, movies, TV seasons, card games, clothes (kids and adults), and records! This isn't just a comic shop, it's and entertainment shop! I was astounded by the size of the store itself! All in all, I can ask myself one thing "Will I come back to the store?" And I answer that with one response "hell yeah!" People check out this store, seriously. - Kevin H
This is a review of all our cool customers..........you all are the best...I love talking to all of you guys and hearing what you love in the comics and music world......biggest thrill is seeing the smiles on peoples faces when they find something cool to add to their collection. - Owner Ben Jordan
