'The Walking Dead' Fans Flock to New Comic Book Store in Trenton
One of the most popular comics available at Comic City in Trenton is also the basis for a popular television show of the same name on AMC.
Stephanie Smethers said the most popular comic book at Comic City in Trenton is the graphic novel "The Walking Dead," by Robert Kirkman, which was the basis for the hit television show of the same name.
"'The Walking Dead' is an absolute staple at all of our locations," Smethers said.
Smethers and her parents, Bob and Jill Smethers, opened their fourth Comic City location at 3410 West Road in late February.
Those who shy away from the zombie genre of comics can find plenty of other comics to read including Superman and Batman.
Trenton High School freshman Bradly Drabczyk said recent films based on Marvel Comics characters brought him to the store to find out more about the superheroes he'd seen on the big screen.
"Ever since the Marvel crossovers like The Avengers came out, I think we're starting to get more into it," Drabczyk said.
Drabczyk said he has a particular interest in Captain America comics because his favorite superhero fought against real-life enemies, Nazis, and used historical facts to tell a fictional tale.
Fans of superheros of all types are likely to find something of interest at Comic City. The store has everything from comics to action figures.
Comic City will also have Ford Motor Company products exclusive to the Trenton location.
