Park Avenue Comics & Games
Muscled superheroes duke it out with zombies and vampires for prime shelf space at Park Avenue Comics & Games, whose vast inventory of trade paperbacks, comics, and board games was voted the most geek-friendly in City’s Best of Rochester 2011 poll. Perennial comic powerhouses Marvel and DC are well represented in the store’s catalog, from new titles that chronicle Batman’s crime-fighting story to back issues that recount Captain America’s quest to memorize all the words in the Pledge of Allegiance. A pull-list service ensures dedicated fans don’t miss the newest issues and even slices off 15% from the price of all new titles. Though board games fly off the shelves on casual in-store game nights for the whole family, little ones should stay at home on Friday nights, when players morph into card-munching werewolves for Magic: The Gathering tournaments.
