Time Out says

One of the most aesthetically unique comic shops in Los Angeles, Blastoff is brightly lit and filled with wood shelving and fixtures. The unorthodox setting highlights the shop’s smaller, curated selection of comics and graphic novels alongside original art, statues and framed classic issues for sale. These classics, dating to the early 20th century, come not only from the owner's stash, but from the personal collections of local comics creators, who trust Blastoff to sell these rare and unusual show-pieces. Anchored by the handsomely framed comics, all-wood interior and a sizable magazine rack filled with classic pulp novels, Blastoff exudes an air of old-school class fitting its trendy North Hollywood neighborhood.
