About Our Shop

Favorite Recent Comic Book: Steven Universe

How was your Halloween ComicFest event?  We just opened in October last year, so we had a VERY small event for it; hope it turns into a great annual event though!

What has been your best promotion or event?  Since we’ve only open a few months, our best event was definitely our grand opening!

What recent changes have you made in the store?  Everything!

What steps have you taken to expand your customer base or to reach out to individuals unfamiliar with your store or comics in general?  Our owner, Alan, owns and runs the NCComicon, which helps expose us to a whole new and different audience twice every year! We’ve pushing a lot a local movie theaters, and using our two older stores to get the word out about this location too! We’re also really starting to ramp up our social media advertising, and we think the FCBD will make a really big difference.

What are your plans for the near future?  NCComicon: Oak City is NEXT WEEK!

How did you choose your store name? Years and years ago, when Alan first moved to the area, after getting poor service from the local shops, he decided that he could just do better, and in doing so, deemed his enterprise the Ultimate Comic shop in the area.

What superpower would you most like to have?  Flying!
