Stories has recently opened in Colonial Heights, and with Metropolis Comics gone, it is the only comic shop in the city. They have a good selection of titles ~ your standard Marvel & DC books, as well as quite a few independent titles and manga too. They also sell used DVDs, but I don't know if they buy them back or how that works. There wasn't much merchandising that I saw, but then again it's a small store compared to some, and it's good to see dedication to the comics themselves and not the additional toys and t-shirts, etc., that seem to go along with them. They keep a few of the most recent back issues in stock, and seem to have quite a collection for customers looking for specific back issues. I really like it.
