Went to Amalgam Comics in Philly over the weekend. Super awesome comic shop that also double as a communal space. They have couches up front, coffee tables and chairs with tables set up on the side, and in the back they have a giant conference table. The group up front seemed to be having some kind of meeting, the side tables were people drinking coffee and reading books, and the back table was actually a huge D&D group. I listened in to their session and realized they were playing the quest that I'm trying to get my group to play next!!! I had to leave lol.

Their ACTUAL comic selection was pretty standard and considering how big the place is, I thought there would be a lot more.

That being said, I did like the communal aspect of it. I think too many places in and around DC are just giant comic shops with no sense of community. I guess that's the way to culture has been bred. It was refreshing to have a welcoming place to just chill out and read comics and maybe meet some other nerds. Hard to beat the collection at Atomic City though!
