Forbidden Planet New York
I went to the Forbidden Planet comic store in NY. It was a nice bookend to my Forbidden Planet visit in Dublin.
Didn't even venture to the anime/manga second floor,
but the first floor was packed with comics, graphic novels, and lots of figurines. I didn't see any back issues, which is the mark of a *great* comic store.
Only bought 2 comics (but got a 10% student discount)...Banana Sunday #2 and Smoke and Guns, recommended by Yet Another Comics Blog. The main character in S&G is a cigarette girl, and I've always wanted to be a cigarette girl for Halloween.
