Don't listen to the print media naysayers: Now is a great time for comic books — maybe the best time. More diverse comics are being printed than ever before, and the quality's never been better. Doubt it? Stroll into Ash Ave Comics & Books in Tempe. The neighborhood mainstay has all the big names — check out the Wonder Woman and Spider-Man titles if you dug those silver-screen blockbusters — but also a heady selection of underground, autobiographical, sci-fi, horror, and left-of-center fare. Owner Drew Sully has a distinct grasp on it all — he's the kind of guy who can clue you in on obscure Marvel trivia as well as dive into Japanese manga and Alan Moore's legendary run on Swamp Thing via the Ash Ave Comics Book Club, which meets monthly.
