Opened in 1978 by Geoffrey Patterson, Geoffrey's Comics delights aspiring superheroes with an impressive array of graphic novels, newly released comic books, and rare vintage comics from the Golden and Silver ages. A life-size Superman bursts through the wall behind the cash register as guests peruse bold, colorful covers or meander underneath the suspended Spider-Man as he quietly hums his theme song. Various graphic novelists visit the hallowed halls to sign original sketches, T-shirts, or comics or watch patiently as fans reenact recent story lines as interpretive dance. The passion Geoffrey holds for the graphic genre is reflected in his comic-themed cars and house, where every nook and cranny is covered with posters, figurines, bat signals, and colorful drawings, leading up to a jet-black Batman-themed pool.
