The Comic Store

Welcome to The Comic Store where “We don’t just sell comics”. In addition to our comprehensive selection of new and classic comic books, we pride ourselves on providing our customers with an array of comic related memorabilia. We have a large selection of graphic novels, role-playing games, trading cards, collectible card games, and miniatures. We look forward to seeing you in our store and hope that you can come to visit us soon!

The Comic Store first opened in 1977 (the same year Star Wars was released). From the beginning we have been proud to bring all the new comic books to the readers in Lancaster County and the surrounding regions. Over the years the store has grown from a small 2 day-a-week operation to the large 7 days-a-week business that is now one of the oldest comic specialty stores in America. This website is the next step in the evolution of The Comic Store and we welcome your feedback and comments.
