Ghent’s only comic book and graphic novel store. We’re located at 1905 Colonial Avenue, right next door to Cogan’s pizza. We carry a great selection of mainstream and independent comics, as well as the best selection of graphic novels in Virginia. We also have a wide variety of comic and pop culture related toys and gifts.
Local Heroes aims to create an environment that promotes comics as an art form and gives people a place to share and enjoy their hobby. This is your comic store, but everyone is welcome. Stop by and check us out, we’re here Mon–Sat from 11–8 and Sunday from 12–6.
