8 Great Comic Book Shops in the Quad Cities

Comic Books and accessories have always been something that “collectors” have loved hunting down–seeking out the newest release or digging for a rare gem in a sea of cardboard boxes. This alongside the booming popularity of superhero films and television shows, the art of comic is alive and well in the Quad Cities.
