Downtown Mesa has welcomed all sorts of geekery with open arms and Gotham City Comics & Coffee is no exception. Owners Kevin Johnson and Miguel Vega have made a haven for comic book lovers, the video game obsessed and anime aficionados at this comic book shop and coffee bar. The shop hosts video game tournaments, book-signings and plenty of other events to keep fans of sci-fci, super heroes and card games coming back for more. They've got a decent selection of comic books, graphic novels, action figures and art – all of which they invite you to enjoy in-house. Grab a spot in any of the couches, tables or chairs to read the hottest new thing or just check out some anime on the T. V.s. In the back room you'll find more seating and flat screen T.V.'s for your X-Box gaming pleasure. If you're planning on staying late be sure to caffeine it up with a cup of house-brewed coffee or an energy drink.
