    It looks like a great place to pick up “fights in tights” comics, but for my money they best comic shop in Pittsburgh is the Copacetic Comics Co. http://www.copaceticcomics.com/ It’s run by a single, eccentric, enthusiastic dude with his ear to the ground re: what’s new and exciting in the world of comics, and who sells everything at a mark-down from the cover value. I haven’t lived in Pittsburgh for about 7 years now, but I still rely on their monthly email list to keep me abreast of each month’s significant new releases, and still try to order stuff from them rather than Amazon when I can.

    I loved the video and God bless this guy for taking advantage of dirt cheap commercial space in little rust belt communities. 

    Western PA has a tradition of small town life that freely mixes Scotch/Irish,  Italian, Polish, Slovac, Russian Orthodox, and Jewish immigrants in a very European way.  You can be “bohemian” in a way that would never be possible in the Bible Belt. Whatever you do, people are like “That’s cool, we all mind our own business..”

    As the “good friend” at 1:01 in that video, I can tell you that a visit to the Ellwood store is an experience like none other. Go there for the basement sale, and submerge yourself in the smell and feel.

  4. That was very nice and educational.

    But if you’re southwest of Pittsburgh, then you should go to Pittsburgh Comics in McMurray.

    For comics in Pittsburgh you can’t go wrong with Phantom of the Attic in Oakland. Everything about that place is top notch. Plus, Ed is doing a signing there next week.
