Windup robot figure, $18, at Hypnotronic Comics
Geekiness and girl power unite at the first female-operated comics store in the five boroughs. Former HR administrator Joy Ghigliotti aims to make the shop chick-friendly by offering quirky jewelry ($3–$50) and bags ($4–$45), alongside comics ($1–$20), action figures ($2–$70) and memorabilia ($5–$20). The 800-square-foot space is packed with an assortment of new and vintage sci-fi, horror, fantasy and pop-culture artifacts ($1–$2,400). Catch up on the latest issue of The Walking Dead ($3) before shopping for Blue Q recycled bags ($18) and windup robot figures ($18). Mention TONY for 10 percent off most items (some vintage exclusions may apply) through December 31.

Best sci-fi / comics collections in NYC, not just Staten Island. Worth the ferry ride just for this store, and it's just steps from the ferry terminal.

This is the best tiny comic shop ever. They have something for everyone, from the old school comics (including the rare, vintage, and hard to find goodies), old board games, and more. They are up to date with their current modern shows and comics too, and they cater to the nerdy and geek alike. Go visit!!!

Hypnotronic is the real deal. Rock star owner Joy Ghiglliotti has true love for comic culture : )

Very good customer service. Very kind staff and great selection. If they don't have something, they can easily order it. Also, good bargains too!

Best Comic Book shoppe on the island. They have the best prices also and some of the coolest and rarest collections. Joy is also such a wonderful person and fun to talk with. It's a must stop shoppe even if all you're doing is getting off the boat to see saint george and then getting back on it.

This is the best place to get your comics and Joy and Ed are great people who make everyone feel like family.

I'm simply amazed at the amount of toys from my childhood they had behind glass. It's rare to get those moments when you are transported back in time when you would poke your dad and point at the Robocop action figure and say Pleeeeease! Hypno Tronic Comics have just a great selection from Zombies to Inflated Nun Punching Dolls (Sister Discipline!!!) Their inventory gets bigger and better, they prices have always been fair (especially on the 10th Doctor Who Screwdriver). It's a sanctuary for freaks, geeks, nerds and book worms alike. The owners are there to help you find anything or find it online for you. I personally blame them for my obsession with the graphic novels, The Preacher!
