In 1991, comic experts Marv Brost and Steve Beard decided Seattle needed a new outlet for mainstream, underground, and adult comics, and Comic Dungeon was born. Now owned by family oriented enthusiast Scott Tomlin, the store focuses on new and vintage comics and has attracted visits from illustrators and writers across the business. The store's shelves host scores of inky adventures, ranging from the whiz-bang derring-do of superheroes from the Green Lantern and Spider-Man to the surreal grabbed-from-TV exploits of Finn and Jake in Adventure Time. In addition to newly featured merchandise, Comics Dungeon also honors time-tested plotlines in the form of anthologies, graphic novels, and etchings on the front of old VHS tapes.
