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.
Tips from foursquare
Another great NYC comic shop, chocked full of great books and merch
I hate having to check my bag in when I go here(cus I had stuff stolen in other stores that did the same thing) besides midtown comics is nicer and u don't have to check ur bag at the counter
Mr. Cage was asking for Ghost Rider comics. Classic.
Find figures and toys here you will. Prices great they are. Yessss.
There's a second floor with manga, anime & DVDs. Go to the back right of the store for all this and more!
