Before you enter Forbidden Planet for the first time, take a deep breath. The aisles are going to be packed with people. You are going to have check your bag. And you’re going to want to buy everything. But what Forbidden Planet lacks in atmosphere it makes up for in pure breadth of selection. If you’re into Marvel and DC, they’ve got you covered. If you’re a toys and gaming freak, this is your stop, too. Manga heads will also find Forbidden Planet to their liking. There’s even a decent selection of graphic novels for any stray indie kids who wander over from The Strand, down the street. In the entirely likely event that you are the victim of brusque service, try to remember that this shop may well house the busiest comic shop staff in the world.
