Unlike reading novels, reading comic books doesn’t require you to learn any new words that aren't onomatopoeias. Revel in the loud world of graphic storytelling with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of mint-condition or sentimentally valuable comics at the Comic Vault in Ravenswood.
The Comic Vault is a vast storehouse of multipaneled excitement. Its well-read, personable staff can help you find any series or special issue you’re looking for, and if they don’t have it in stock, they’ll order it right away via standard shipping or Pony Express. Though prices vary greatly depending on the make, model, and mileage of each issue, the Vault receives impressive shipments of new comics weekly, so you can decide between hidden-gem budget items or justifiably expensive graphic novels composed of tears. Each issue is cordoned off with an individual plastic bag and a bend-protecting board, so they’re guaranteed to remain in good shape in case of short- or long-term storage.
In addition to its impressive collection of new, old, and teenaged comics, the Comic Vault is home to an inclusive community of funny paper aficionados and superhero-savvy thought-bubble interpreters. Check out the oft-updated blog to hear updates on the latest court-mandated cage match between DC's and Marvel’s CEOs or head to the store to meet any number of loyal customers and brothers and sisters in comic-filled arms.
- Excellent store. If they don't have, they'll get it for you. As a newbie to the comic book world, I find the staff very helpful with suggestions and they haven't given me a bad suggestion yet. Definite must visit for all comic book lovers. – Nicolle V., Yelp
