From Our Editors
With two tan leather chairs and a small reading table as a window display, plus shiny wooden floors and a sophisticated décor, Secret Headquarters in Silver Lake isn’t your typical comic book store. Instead, expect rows of neatly organized shelves containing a wide selection of both independent and mainstream comics, as well as graphic novels and art books. They also sell original art, prints, sketchbooks and zines, and frequently host events such as collection releases that showcase local artists. There is also a buy-sell-trade element to Secret Headquarters, meaning the simple storefront will purchase comics, pulp magazines, art magazines and other desired collectibles from patrons, as well as accept direct submissions from comic book and zine publishers who want to be carried in the store.
