A pioneer of modern comic retailing, Secret Headquarters was one of the first shops to create an inviting environment to buy, read and talk comics. Refusing to rest on its laurels, SHQ maintains one of the best-curated collections of cutting-edge English language comics in the world (just across the wall from your favorite superhero books). With sections spotlighting up-and-coming artists and shelves dedicated to the absolute latest in odd and beautiful comics, SHQ sells stuff that can’t be found anywhere else. This Silver Lake shop hosts signings and gallery openings featuring comics’ best and brightest, and even maintains its own publishing program.

I love browsing around this shop. You can pretty much read anything you want in here for as long as you want (there are even comfy leather chairs near the window), and the staff is incredibly knowledgeable about comics ad graphic novels. It's a great place to kill some time and an even better place to find a gift—though I usually always end up buying something for myself, too.
