It is said that teachers are the world's true superheroes, providing desultory villains with the book-learning and brain gadgets they need to hang up their masks and join the workforce. See masked defenders in action with today's Groupon to Pulp Comics in downtown Niagara Falls. Pulp Comics is a haven of dynamic drawings for the modern comic connoisseur with a large selection of comics, graphic novels, toys, and collectibles. The spacious and well-organized store includes comics ($2.99–$3.99) such as classic publications like Wolverine, Batman and Robin, and Of Mice and X-Men as well as new favourites like Brightest Day and True Blood. While today's Groupon is good for new comics only, patrons can peruse the "Back-Cave," where more than 10,000 back issues from the Silver Age to the Modern Age hang upside down. Pulp also offers a pull-and-hold service so that devotees will never miss a single issue of their favourite riveting rag. Free WiFi is also available.
- Tappay has collected comics for almost 25 years. His passion for the art, stories they tell and the super heroes portrayed are things he dreamt about as a young boy. With the help and support of his family, Tappay opened his dream store in the ever-evolving downtown. – Alison Bell, Niagara This Week

Pulp Comics traces its origins to a heroic act of kindness.
In 2009, Paul Tappay donated part of his liver to his father, saving his dad's life and leaving him plenty of time to read comic books while convalescing in the hospital. Hungry for a new adventure, Paul drew up a business plan built around his love of comics, games, and pop culture. Months after the Tappay family's life-altering and lifesaving surgery, Pulp Comics began welcoming visitors not to a crowded, dimly lit lair, but to a sunny, roomy space full of new and vintage publications and droves of like-minded hobbyists.
A sense of positive, fun-loving nerddom pervades Pulp Comics' main room, where you'll find collectibles, racks of comic books, and a life-sized replica of Harrison Ford's character from Witness frozen in carbonite. Guests read gripping graphic novels in the front room's comfy leather sofas or retreat to the Back Cave, filled with more than 10,000 vintage back issues, old-school arcade games, and free WiFi.
