Overall
Villainous Lair comics is good...

Villainous Lair comics is good at being bad. Sexy supervillains lure you in from the street hand-painted by co-owner Sara Swieca. Once inside Sara or co-owner, Chris Mitchell, are quick to greet you and welcome you to their lair. You don’t have to buy anything. There are always some people around playing a CCG (Collectable card game) such as Magic, Pokemon or YuGiOh . Epic Nerd conversations are welcome, challenge their geek lore. Both of the owners have years of experience in the business and a lifetime in the community and have fostered an atmosphere that is neither home nor work, but a place to hang out.
Peruse their extensive subscription news rack for the latest issues, dig through their boxes and boxes of back issues or check out their graphic novels. Local artists are welcome to display their work or offer it on a consignment basis. Toys and merchandise are available including Comic Con exclusives. Don’t even think about buying the life-size Yoda. Sara has had it since she was a child, and it was cast from the original mold.
Community is more than a word to the villains here. They are fundraising for baby Leia, a local child stricken with an expensive but curable illness. They have a program for soldiers where if you pay for or donate comics they pay for the shipping overseas for these and other care packages. They also work with Wounded Warrior and Toys for Tots as well as other programs.
There are free movie screenings, panels, parties, workshops (for things like zombie makeup on a budget), and soon: CCG tournaments.
If they don’t seem that evil for villains you may be right. But if you suddenly don’t feel so well after a visit, you may have to come back for another dose of antidote.
