Pop quiz, comic geek: What do fossil records and comic shops have in common? Answer: Both are a window into a time and place that have long since passed. The glory days of comic stores with their boxes jammed full of meticulously plastic-sleeved, cardboard-backed wonders may be gone, but you can relive the memories of them at Ash Avenue Comics. In this shop, spandex-clad superheroes continue their eternal quests to defeat the forces of evil (also in spandex) 24 pages at a time. Just be prepared to wait for the shop to open. There are posted hours, mind you, but they're a bit more like guidelines than hard-and-fast hours of operation.

Bravo, Ash Ave Comics!

But it must be said, despite rumors to the contrary, the Valley has a very healthy brick and mortar comic shop market: Samurai Comics, Pop Culture Paradise, Jesse James Comics, Gotham City Comics & Coffee, All About Books & Comics, Greg's Comics ... I'm probably leaving someone out ... yep... edited to add: Drawn to Comics, Hero Comics, and the brand, spanking new Dr. Fantasy's Comics and More.

Comic retailers are far from fossils around here!
