About Our Shop

Favorite Recent Comic Book: Hillbilly, Reborn, Rebirth Batman, All-Star Batman

How was your Halloween ComicFest event?  It was phenomenal.  We had so much fun and cannot wait until next year!

What has been your best promotion or event?  Halloween Comic Fest was our most enjoyable event.  We had Anthony Carrigan (Victor Zsasz), 3 walkers from The Walking Dead, Dan Way (Deadpool), Brockton McKinney (Gingerdead Man), metal band Against Their Will, local artists, and an amazing support from our community.

What recent changes have you made in the store?  We are constantly upgrading fixtures, comics, services, events, and product.

What steps have you taken to expand your customer base or to reach out to individuals unfamiliar with your store or comics in general?  We have a series of fun commercials that we air through 2 local cable companies, host events at the local movie theater to promote comic movies, assist in community projects, run online promotions, and take every opportunity to have fun!

What are your plans for the near future?  Continue to grow the business, community, and the comic book industry.  We will continue to re-invent and have lots of events and opportunities for the community.

How did you choose your store name?  We combined our love of horror and Batman villains.  Arkham is the perfect blend of Lovecraftian horror and incredible Bat villainy.

What superpower would you most like to have?  Bill – invisibility; Tiffany - telepathy
