Gamma Comics is a wonderful store, and the only real comic book store in the northeast area. I have read all the of previous reviews and some were quite disheartening. To judge someone by their appearance as "creepy looking" is just horrible. As for those claiming most of the 5 star reviews are from his friends, are wrong. There was just one and this was before he became close friends with Larry (the owner), and why? Because it is easy. He is such an easy going, helpful and kind individual. Often donating many items to local children charities. I am another real friend of Larry and feel I should explain why the store is disorganized/messy. It is the first year for a first time store owner, whose mother was diagnosed with cancer shortly after opening. He has spent every single cent he has made from the store and his personal savings to pay for her treatment, and weekly had to drive her out of town for treatment. Which explains why sometimes he wouldn't be there. Sadly she has passed just recently, and he has such dedicated customers many have come in to support and help him through this difficult time. I understand it is not up to the customer to know or care about this, but as with all things in life, there is a story behind everything. The store is currently being renovated, cleaned, and shall be sparkling by the end of this month! (Jan.2014). Gamma Comics has determined to turn things around and aims to impress! So please, those who doubted before, give it a second chance.

You have to go here. The next closest store like this is all the way by Decker and doesn't have this much stuff, and definitely doesn't have the same awesome prices. It has everything from cards to videogames to figures to books...and the list goes on. My friends and I love it and are constantly telling people about it. Before it opened I had to buy all that stuff online, like my cards and videogames, and now I can just run up the street and get it! They should totally hang some stuff on the walls (like wall scrolls :D) but other than that, we love it. I go in stores to buy stuff, not critique their interior designing skills. If you like the flea market so much better, then good luck trying to find what you want there for a good price. I saw a Gamecube game I had as a kid at the flea market for $50 and the guy wouldn't budge on his price at all, I bought the same game HERE for $13. The people are chill , prices are good, and they have a ton of stuff. I will be broke for as long as this store is in business. GOOD GAME. :P
I am an owner of another local collectible shop, but I do not consider myself a rival, since I send many of my customers here, if I do not have what they are looking for. I've known Larry (the owner) for a long time and he has bought numerous things from me to resell in his shop. That is what good businesses do, they work with each other! I'm not here to bash the store at all. It has so much potential, and I hope it grows to be one of the largest in the area. I do think that all these reviews have some things right, but also have some things wrong. I took two stars away for two reasons. One, the shop needs to get more organized. And two, Larry should be in the shop more often. I'm just trying to give constructive criticism. I recommend all comic and collectible collectors to check it out. There are some very cool things in there, and I hope to see Gamma Comics around for many many years! I'll be back in soon!
