Best super-heroic comics shop

Heroes’ Haven Comics

What’s in a name? When it comes to this comic book shop, it’s all you need to know. Heroes’ Haven is the place to indulge in virtually every corner of comic book, collecting and geek culture imaginable while feeling like a part of a community. Since opening in 2008, the shop has become a staple, with a large selection of new and back issue comics, collectibles, toys, statues, and much more. One of the shop’s main draws is its slew of successful events. Their Free Comic Book Day celebration has grown into something huge (this year with a line wrapping around the entire plaza); they regularly bring in local and national artists for signings and custom art commissions for customers; they offer game and movie nights, and are a strong presence at Florida conventions. If you’re interested in dipping your toe into the world of comics, the awesome staff will point you in the right direction to start your new obsession. 4339 Gunn Hwy, Tampa, 813-269-8859,
