The authority on comics in NYC. The walk up makes it memorable, and timing is important. The wall of new comics is located right at the entrance, and it's easy to get caught up perusing with the crowd. The rest of the first level is dedicated to popular back issues, trades, manga, and new (and/or relevant to movie release) collectibles. The second level has statues, action figures, apparel, posters, and more (and older) back issues. This is the 'midtown' location of the chain, and it is a really good showing. The staff is helpful, and generally knowledgeable with interesting recommendations.
