Godzilla - Kingdom of Monsters ON SALE NOW


This is the MUST have comic of the year.  Not only is it Godzilla but check out the EXCLUSIVE cover showing the big lizard crushing our Lancaster Store.

This cover is ONLY available at The Comic Store and Comic Store West.  Limited Quantities available.

Wonder Woman TV Costume CHANGED !!


I guess NBC got a ton of hate mail for the original concept of the blue boots and have thankfully listened to the fans.  The red boots are an huge improvement over the original design.
