History

Brainstorm was established in 1984. We moved into downtown Frederick after nearly 30 years in business. The previous location was a mortuary/funeral home in the 19th century. Our newest location in Walkersville has quite a history and once sold “beverages.” Come visit and experience the personalized customer service you have come to expect from Brainstorm Comics and Gaming.
