    What about Chuck’s Comics??? Eastern Ave

    Cosmic Comics in Catonsville is also really good. They have a great selection and a knowledgeable (patient) staff.

    I was going to say what about Chuck’s Comics too? I haven’t been to any of the comic shops in the city but Chuck’s is the best one I’ve found nearest to my house and I live in Harford County.

    Collectors Corner on Harford Rd in Baltimore, is regarded as one of the best comic stores in the country probably the biggest & best in Maryland, how is that overlooked? No way that they aren’t on this list.
