What You'll Get
The comic book offers escape to its readers, allowing mere airline pilots and professional bodybuilders to imagine what it's like to fly or have superstrength, even if only for a moment. Read your way out of a ho-hum daily routine with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of graphic novels, comic books, and more at Mission: Comics & Art.
Mission: Comics & Art is dedicated to aligning the world of illustration's myriad factions, situating graphic novels beside art books, comic books, T-shirts, and original artwork for sale on the walls. Customers can tread among the store's colorful aisles, leafing through finds such as The Walking Dead TPB Vol. 1 ($9.99) or learning about the neighborhood’s history through its murals and graphic mythology in the Comic Book Guide to the Mission ($15). Other comic collectibles include Nonplayer #1 ($2.99) and The Ultimates: Ultimate Collection, Vol. 1 ($34.99). As they peruse, customers are encouraged to converse and ask questions such as, "Is this Wonder Woman outfit appropriate for my errands?"
Hosting periodic series of events, Mission: Comics & Art offers itself as a forum for film screenings, appearances by comic-book creators, art shows, and book-release parties. The shop also sponsors a book club, picking a different graphic-novel or trade-paperback comic-book collection each month and allowing anyone to join in as long as members don't use their special powers to skip to the end of the book.
