Bergen Street Comics – Brooklyn, NY

Bergen Street is not a big store, but it is perhaps the most “zen” comics shop we’ve ever had the pleasure of frequenting. Only a few years old, it’s located on a Park Slope street, where its polished wood floors and exposed brick recall the interiors of the neighborhood’s brownstones. There’s a steady supply of indie comics and graphic novels, although folks looking for a place to take their subscription or to grab the latest issue of a mainstream favorite won’t be disappointed. Perhaps the best thing about Bergen Street is that it’s a labor of love for two Brooklynites, Tom and Amy Adams, who are friendly as hell and always happy to make a recommendation or chat about a purchase.
