Best Local Comic Store to Appear in a Major Motion Picture Phoenix 2010 - Atomic Comics in Kick-Ass - CLOSED
If you dig on movies based on comics, chances are good you saw Kick-Ass, the film adaptation of the comic by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. And why not? This film gives comic fans what they want: fistsful of action, a parody of Batman, and even an 11-year-old who drops the "C" word. Hell, Kick-Ass even gives a nod to local comics empire Atomic Comics by including it in the film. No, seriously. Check out the film. The producers could have come up with a random comic store name, but instead, they gave a shout-out to Atomic Comics.
