The Stories on West Broad is the West End’s only real full-service comic book store. New titles arrive each Wednesday, and an extensive collection of back issues awaits those in search of something in particular. Allows a customer to get a subscription box with a minimum of five regular titles. A great source for independent comics as well as the mainstream DC and Marvel titles. They also sell vintage toys and paperback books. The only real detractor is the “Playboy Room.” Clearly visible from the rest of the store, this room feels like something smutty covered in a brown paper bag, and is why the store won’t allow children to enter without an adult.
