Fantastic Shop. Great staff. A huge collection of back issues and all the most recent titles. The owner works the desk most days and is always ready to help. I'll be going back Wednesday!
Friendly environment, great selection, loads of books and merchandise on sale. Been going for almost a year now, and have been using their subscription service with wonderful results. Lots of events, good rep with local Artists and Conventions. I have recommended this shop to friends and family, Vets and Active duty. If you're looking for a comic shop staffed by good people who look after you and your books this is the place to go.
Cosmic Rays is a great shop to go to. Ray knows what he is doing and if you ask him a question and he doesn't know the answer he will find out. He always has the stuff I want and if he doesn't he will find it. He has a huge selection of records, comic books, toys, statues, and other items you would like to collect. Take your kids there too they will have fun in his arcade he has setup. greatly recommend.
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.
I have been in the collectible business for over 25 years. I always pride myself in not only being fair, but being brutally honest! This place is how a collectible shop SHOULD be! Great selection of music, toys, comics and more, with new stuff being added every time i walk in! Ray is personable and works hard to not only answer your questions, but to find what you are looking for. I'd give more stars if this review would let me. You can not go wrong spending your money here on your collectible itch!
NICE PLACE, CLOSE TO HOME, ORDERS ANYTHING I'VE ASKED, PRICES ARE THE SAME AS ANYWHERE ELSE. AS FOR ORGANIZED, ASK IF YOU NEED TO. HALF THE FUN IS LOOKING AND FINDING THAT SOMETHING NEW WHILE YOUR LOOKING.
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!
This is where you can find Yugioh tcg, pokemon tcg, Magic Tcg, new comics, great new and vintage toys, classic video gaming systems, and also a great selection of Heroclix. The store if fairly new. The owner Larry was very helpful in getting what I needed and was willing to work with me on finding what I was looking for. Great comic shop. This is my new hang out spot.
I honestly love this store. It may not be the cleanest place around but it's a really great place. The owner is really nice and his staff are really fun people. I go every Friday I can to Dr Who club and I've never left without having an awesome time. The people there are really good friends to me now and I love shopping there. To the people who are hating on Gamma Comics, why don't you try it if you're going to be rude and mean about the store and its employees.
I have been in this shop a few times. It looks just as bad now, as it did when they first opened. I actually hoped it would have improved some, but the owner is not concerned with getting his shop in order! Prices are too high on MANY items. I read the other reviews, and you can tell that the owner's friends are putting the &quot;good&quot; reviews on here. I went back in to see, after the last one star review was given, and that person is right, it is dirty and unorganized. The nicest area in the place is where the tv is, and even that has trash laying around. I laugh at the reviews that say &quot;Best Comic Book Store I've Been To&quot;! That tells me the person has been to very few, if any others! Or, &quot;yeah they have a lot of boxes, but there is only one dumpster&quot;. How would a customer know about that, or even care? Let me say, I have been in over 100 different comic shops in over 30 different states, and this place ranks at the bottom in appearance, first impression, organization, and customer service. I saw numerous items in here that are priced higher then other shops in the area. And the one reviewer was correct when they say the owner is creepy looking. I felt very uncomfortable in there, and I'm a man. And since we seem hooked on flea markets...... this place looks more like a thrift store. Comparing it to a flea market is just insulting to flea markets! Bottom line..... I recommend you go see for yourself. Then you will leave knowing who is telling the truth! Even my son asked as we left, &quot;Do they not know what a trash barrel is?!&quot; Just to reply to steven.rasmussen84, I'm not associated with ANY rival store as you suggest. And I'm not a nerd, I've been collecting comic books for over 31 years. But nice try! I will say, the employees that work there are helpful, but even one of them said, you should see the owner's house. So you can tell that the people giving the good reviews are friends or actually work there!
