Definitely one of the biggest stores in Maryland.

Huge store, one big room for comic books and another for gaming. They have 9+ tables for gaming and a big selection of games to buy - and miniatures for Warhammer, etc. Door closes between the gaming & comic rooms so the gamers can be loud 🙂 Big selection of back comics and graphic novels. Good selection of CGC graded books too. Plenty of parking. Definitely one of the biggest stores in Maryland.

Great addition to Walkersville!

Great addition to Walkersville! I went in to check it out and the person at the desk was friendly and helpful. I found great age appropriate comics for my littles and they had a great selection of table games and even family board games. They have a huge gaming room and a very nice friendly feeling to the place.

Everything a local comic and game store should be.

First, I’ll always be grateful that I found my d&d group here, we’ve been playing about two years together now and have all become great friends. That happened because the shop hosted a beginners dnd campaign. Never would have found these great people otherwise.
Second John and staff are not only knowledgeable but they make everyone feel welcome. Their shop is the type of place as a gamer or comic nerd (of any level) you want to hang out not just pop in and out to make a quick purchase. I think they are really trying to build something special for gamers at the new location. I’m looking forward to bringing the whole family here for lots of events and game nights.
