A great spot for late night enthusiasts – being from queens, you don't really get to see a lot of comic book stores open past 7pm. i was out on a date last week and while waiting for my date, i passed by st. marks. i had heard about it but never got to frequent it before. i was surprised that there was such variety and selection for a place so small. the staff was extremely helpful. they should really advertise more or something that way people will get to know that they're open till
1 AM on the weekends (if you love comics, tell me that's not awesome) all in all, a great place to shop with plenty of things to do after your done getting your geek on.
Pricey for older stuff, decent for new – the shelves aren't well managed and the back room (where they scope you like you're a criminal which I sort of understand but they need to be more discreet about it) is messily crammed ith really overpirced stuff. I once asked the owner (annoying) why an old price guide was selling for $50 or something ridiculous and he said "well, it's certainly of its time..." Hey EVERYTHING is "of its time", that doesn;t mean it's worth anything. They're also so zealous about you checking your bag that you'd think they'd be better about getting it back to you when you're ready to leave. They seem to employ only teenagers so they can pay them nothing and this is a plus and minus, depending on the situation. Overall, there's better.
Bleah – Errr... cant much about this place. Its about as well lit as a dark alley and about as well spaced as one, ie. watch your elbows folks. Their selection was alright, nothing much to talk about. Not much in the way of collectibles. Browsing wouldnt be bad if their werent a secuirty camera on your face every where yo u stepped. Maybe its a Greenwich Village thing but I dont see this place as being all that good.
