Neighborhood: Park Slope
Address: 470 Bergen St.

2014 is a great time to be a comic book fan. Titles like Saga and Pretty Deadly have put creator-owned comics back on the map, big names like Hawkeye and Moon Knight have gone in fantastic new directions, and longtime favorites like The Walking Dead continue to go strong. Unfortunately, while comics themselves are doing just fine, brick and mortar shops are struggling. Enter Bergen Street Comics, a beautiful little store located between Prospect Heights and Park Slope. The staff is always friendly, the selection fantastic, and there's none of the creepy old-school vibe that some comic book stores still cling to. Whether you're a lifelong comic book lover, or just curious about getting back into them, you owe it to yourself to visit Bergen Street Comics. — Nathan Reese
