Time Out says

One of LA’s most legendary and influential comic book shops, Golden Apple is also one of its most comprehensively stocked. Opened in 1979 on Melrose, Golden Apple’s location on one of the city’s most classically hip boulevards drew in just about every celebrity with an interest in comic books. An old comics-scene joke suggests that know-nothing studio executives could always make money by stopping into Golden Apple and buying the rights to whatever was selling on that particular day. Though it has moved to a somewhat smaller storefront further east on Melrose, its shelves continue to hold multitudes and it reigns as Hollywood’s go-to comic shop.
