About Our Shop

Favorite Recent Comic Book: The new Aaron run for Unworthy Thor has been awesome.  New Moon Knight as well has been so freakin’ cool!

How was your Halloween ComicFest event?  Halloween ComicFest was awesome!!  We saw old and new faces from other Coliseums and even met people who had never been in a comic shop before.  Aquaman and Negan even stopped in for an appearance.

What has been your best promotion or event?  Free Comic Book Day would have to be our best event as it was right after our grand opening.  We saw tons of new faces and even made some of those customers into subscribers.  It also helped us be able to help out special needs schools with the leftover comics.

What recent changes have you made in the store?  We recently moved around some of our trade shelves to help better open up the store and make our visibility better.  Also spread out the merch.

What steps have you taken to expand your customer base or to reach out to individuals unfamiliar with your store or comics in general?  It’s been a lot of social media presence via Facebook (pushing events, sales, new items/books); in-store events like Free Comic Book Day, Batman Day, and Halloween ComicFest; conventions also such as MegaCon help us well with newer stores.

What are your plans for the near future?  To keep making our store here in Altamonte awesome and to keep providing great customer service.  Also, more Coliseum Of Comics locations!

How did you choose your store name?  Personally, I think the name Coliseum Of Comics is great as it’s a name that stands out.  I don’t think I could have come up with as clever of a name.

What superpower would you most like to have?  Immortality so I can be destroyed and brought back.  HAHAHA – indestructible!
