Seldom have I ever been in a comic book store that made me feel at home. The warm and inviting storefront is only excelled by the demeanor of the employees. Off of business route 22 in Monroville, PA. there is a friendly shop called "Phantom of the Attic".
I park my car in the lot and head upstairs to their warm and inviting retail space. Que the sounds of Angelic chorus! I am in GEEK MECCA!!!!
Gaming books, en glassed rarities and Geek Swag abound and entice me every where I look. With all of the geek joy swimming in my synapse fire and veins, it is only matched by the warm and friendly greeting I get from Tom and John who are working. Able to appreciate simple fandom and also relate, the guys know the store like the back of their hand.
I told them of the tragic loss of my collection and how I have to rebuild, and the boys were quickly on the job. I was able to replenish some of my stockpile with, not all together rare, but extremely sentimental issues from my now absent collection. Don't get me wrong, they have some issues that I would truly KILL for! The 9.0 rated "Walking Dead Issue #1 Monthly" REALLY Caught my Eye!
When they saw the joy in my eyes from the finding of several 'key' issues, the look of fulfillment was clear.
In the Pittsburgh area, there really isn't a whole lot of choices when it comes to Comic Shops, sadly. It is very refreshing to know that at least one, the Phantom of the Attic, is willing and able to serve. Great job, Tom and John! Your boss should give you a raise. I will most definitely be back.
Phantom of the Attic get's 5 STARS ***** In my Book!
