Best Comic Book Store: Alliance Comics

904 Light St., (410) 685-0021,

Why, having been open for less than a year, is Alliance Comics is the best comic shop in the city? For starters, Alliance’s Federal Hill, less-than-two-blocks-from-the-harbor location is refreshingly easy to get to. Then there’s the knowledgeable, friendly staff; the expansive library of graphic novels and trade paperback collections (with special sections for big-name creators like Will Eisner and Brian K. Vaughan); the impressive and frequently updated $1 comics bin; and the fact that Alliance has a clearly defined kids section right in front of the store. Add to all that its sponsorship of comics-related events, such as July’s Super Art Fight show, and it’s not hard to see why we’re so blown away by Alliance’s freshman year of operation.
