Time Out says

If you're looking for a shop with an alternative feel that still delivers a vast selection, than the NY-branch of this UK cult megastore is sure to make you happy. While you browse new comics, ranging from big-ticket publishers like Marvel and D.C. you may find yourself picking up manga DVDs and books, anime and sci-fi toys and action figures, offbeat horror and imported magazines like Gothic Beauty, role-playing games and quirky character T-shirts. And there’s no need to feel intimidated. If you’ve never heard of Neil Gaiman, the helpful staff is more than happy to give you a crash course. Be sure to check the store’s Twitter feed (@fpnyc) for updates on when artists and writers will be stopping by.
