Village Voice's Description

If action figures, comics, and other toys enable kids to acclimate to, claim some control over, and even improve on the adult-ruled society that surrounds them, Forbidden Planet might as well be their real world. The store thoroughly represents the cartoonish, sci-fi, fantastic, freaky, furry, squeaky, and scary milieu shared by Pokemon, Star Wars, Nightwing, and countless other (sometimes even better) outcast hero narratives. Sex, violence, community, and loyalty will never make this much sense again.

    Mr. Cage was asking for Ghost Rider comics. Classic.

    There's a second floor with manga, anime & DVDs. Go to the back right of the store for all this and more!
