Comics have been a positive part of my life for as long as I can remember.  I picked up my first Transformers comic at a convenience store newsstand when I was nine. I was captured by the amazing art on the cover, then pulled in by the stories that brought a grand, imaginary world to life. I could not wait for the next issue to come out so I could keep reading. That was something for a kid who hated to read!  Comics opened my eyes to a world of possibilities where there is no limit to what one can achieve. 

My first job during high school was at my local comic book store that I shopped at weekly since discovering my love of comics. I have great memories of being surrounded by the art and stories lining the walls, being excited for each new release and making lifelong friends there. I met my wife of 20 years in that comic shop!

That love of comics continues today, but I haven’t been very happy with my recent comic-buying experiences.  Disorganized racks of thumbed-through comics, sold out and marked-up comics on day of release and unhelpful salespeople have left me disappointed.  Comics should be something magical that everyone can enjoy, and I feel there should be a better way to buy them. This led me to create The Bag ‘N’ Board, a premium service comic shop. Here I can offer you the personalized service and buying experience that comic book fans deserve.   

We believe that creativity, hard work and imagination, along with a positive attitude, are the keys to achieving greatness.  To help foster this belief, we will donate 20 cents from each comic we sell to The Stan Lee Foundation.  This foundation supports literacy and arts programs, mirroring the essential building blocks of our own beliefs.  Excelsior!

My goal is to make sure we stock exactly what you want.  If you do not see something you are looking for, please send us an e-mail at info@thebagnboard.com.  We will do what we can to make sure we stock your favorites.  And, don't forget about our monthly folder service to be sure you get your comics/collectables that release each week.

Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your comic book buying experience.  It is our pleasure to bring these great worlds and stories right to your door.
