2009-07-16 12:10:20   I made hour-long trips with friends to E.C. decades ago, as a teen. Back then it was just a store with a lot of comics. Older now, as my kids have started collecting and I have restarted; I want a place with quality service, a knowledgeable and helpful staff, good policies, good selection, great price, and that kind of "family business" atmosphere - like Norm walking into Cheers. I want a place where I feel my business is appreciated. Empire Comics is that place (both of them - I work near #1, and live near #2). —ShannonClingerman

2023-03-16 00:11:05   I just added a comic to my store that has their stamp on the back of the comic. Sorry to hear that the brothers passed. I was looking up the store to see if it was still in business. The comic I just listed was a Marvel Comics Brute Force comic from 1990. The stamp on the back cover was from their Mt Hope location. https://www.ebay.com/itm/175652682811Seibertron
