The Comic Monstore is Rowan County’s premier destination for comic books, games and toys.  Since 2003, The Comic Monstore has catered to fans of super heroes, fantasy, science-fiction and horror.  While the store has a wide variety of collectibles for kids of all ages, it has also become a gathering place for gamers.  Weekly events (when there isn’t a pandemic) usually include Magic: The Gathering, Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, and a variety of other card games and board games.  

Store Hours: 

Monday – Thursday 11am – 6pm

Friday and Saturday 11am – 6pm

Sunday 1pm – 6pm

The Comic Monstore opened in May of 2003.  Conveniently located near exit 75, off of I-85, the shop is easy to locate.  The store is owned by Ray & Karen Franks, and the store manager is Shane Peoples.  If you are hungry, we are near several locations for food, including:  Wendy’s, Massimo’s Sandwich Shop, Casa Grande Mexican Restaurant, and Ichiban’s Japanese Steakhouse.

Free Comic Book Day 2020 is morphing into Free Comic Book Summer. Due to that pesky virus, we’re stretching out our annual event in an effort to keep crowds smaller, while still giving away thousands of free comic books. Masks will be required and we’ll make efforts to limit the number of people in the store at one time.


Starting on Saturday, May 9th, we will once again allow customers inside to shop but we understand that the worst of this crisis may still be ahead of us. We will be wearing masks and we would appreciate our customers wearing masks, also. If you do not have one, we usually have some handcrafted, cloth masks for sale. Hand sanitizer will be available. We will also continue to gladly assist you by offering curbside & sidewalk pickups. We’ve scaled back our hours to Monday through Saturday: 11am until 6pm and Sunday: 1pm until 6pm.

Since March, we’ve been focusing much of our time toward creating a larger online presence. We’re updating and adding to our Square Online Store and our Ebay Store, daily. If you see something that interests you in either of those stores, let us know and we can make it available for you to pick up in person. That’ll save some shipping fees.
