About Atomic Monkey

We're a traditional style store. Small but packed to the ceiling with comics, games, and toys.

We do our best to keep everything neat and organized, but the boss is always buying awesome collections people bring in, so you may catch us sorting through a pile of long boxes or stack of toys.

We don't limit ourselves to items you find in most comic shops. We love all things pop culture, so we also buy and sell all sorts of unique items like vintage records, classic sci-fi, fantasy and art books books, and even original posters and art.

Everyone is welcome here. We have a family-friendly staff and envoirnment.

We know you have a lot of choices when it comes to where you buy your new comics, graphic novels, and action figures. Our goal is to make Atomics Monkey your first choice by offering superior customer service, competitive prices, and a great selection of products.

Here's some fun facts about the store:

  • What you see online and what you will see in the store are different. We don't double dip. We've got stuff on Amazon and Ebay so check all three spots for maximum value. 

  • We don't overcharge on variants on new comic Wednesday. The variants we get are the same price as the 1:1 ratio books. We open at 11:00 on Wednesday so plan your lunch break accordingly.

  • Come in and shop. We sometimes like to sneak keys and variants into the bins because we know how aweome it is run run your fingers through a long box and find a little gold. (Please don't tell the boss. I'm serious.)

  • We offer the best subscription service in Houston. Come join our growing community. We're more than just strangers passing each other by each Wednesday.  (We don't have an online service yet, but we will make sure to keep one of the most unique and fun selection of products online instead.)

  • 10% off Graphic Novels and Trade Paperbacks all day long. Softcover and Hardcover.
