Every comic collector has that grail book they are seeking out to complete their collection.  Brainstorm Comics and Gaming, Frederick's local comic shop for 40 years, has added hundreds of CGC graded comics to its inventory over the last two weeks.  Whether you are a Marvel, DC or independent fan, we have something for you!


We have 30 of the CGC graded books at our downtown Frederick, Maryland store located at 117 N Market St.  The remaining hundreds of books are on our eBay store.

  • Boys #1
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 Gamestop Reprint
  • Sonic the Hedgehog #0
  • Sonic the Hedgehog #1
  • DC Comics Presents #26
  • Much, much more!


The book that was so over the top that DC Comics directed Garth Ennis to find another publisher after the initial issue dropped.  Now, that story has been turned into the very popular television show on Amazon--The Boys! Add this part of comic book and now pop culture history to your collection.


The first issue of TMNT is out of reach for most collectors.  As a result even the "next best thing" books begin to rise in value and desirablity.  This book is a perfect example of that.  Here we have a high-grade copy for sale--the perfect stand in until you get that much coveted 1st print of TMNT #1.

Sonic the Hedgehog #0 and #1

With the ever increasing popularity of the speedy blue hedgehog, these books are sure to continue to garner attention from the video games' biggest fans.  Movies, television shows, Lego themes, and much more are guaranteed to continue to drive the market to frenzied levels.  Add this pair of CGC graded comics to your collection.

DC Comics Presents #26

If DC Comics has its version of Giant Sized X-Men #1, it is THIS book.  How does this book get bestowed that enormous distinction? The first appearances of Starfire, Cyborg and Raven, the core of the Teen Titans that fans have come to love.  If ever there was a DC book to add to your collection, this CGC graded comic is it. 

Amazing Spider-Man #4 J. Scott Campbell Exclusive

This particular book has a couple things going for it.  First, the first appearance of Cindy Moon as Silk.  With the growing popularity of all Spider related characters, she has found a niche all her own.  Second, the exclusive cover by the all-star artist J Scott Campbell.  His covers continue to be sought after by a large swatch of collectors that love his one-of-a-kind style.  This 9.0 CGC Graded comic is a must have for lovers of Spider-Man and for lover of the fan-favorite artist.

Stormwatch #4

We may be a little biased toward anything that has the word "storm" in its name, but we believe this book is a must-have for comic collectors.  As you can see in the picture, this is the first appearance of Apollo and Midnighter.  You don't know who they are?  Well, if you're looking forward to the James Gunn slate of movies and saw the title "Authority," you're going to want to know who these two are.  The excitement level is very high for what Gunn has in store, so this book is sure to grow a hot commodity in the comic collecting world.

Teen Titans #12

One of the hottest characters to be created over the last few years, Batman Who Laughs set the comic world on fire with his unique appearance and backstory.  Here is his first full appearance and the one you're going to want to add to your collection.  If you're a Batman fan, this needs to be in your collection.  This CGC graded comic book is available at our downtown Frederick, Maryland location at 117 N Market St.
