The little Wilmette space may be short on space, but makes up for it with taste. The Gallery can not compete with the selection of a comic book megastore, but part of the charm of shopping at quaint neighborhood spot is talking comics with the owner, Vern. The longtime reader smartly curates his shop, leaving the dumb filler titles from the Big Two publishers to others (though Vern will politely order your Deadpool spin-offs for you). This is the kind of place to grab all the cutting edge Image stuff and debate how it compares to the Silver Age. The bundled back-issue collections run deceptively deep, and are values.
