One of the great pleasures of working at Comic Envy is getting to know our customers, both the occasional and the faithful weekly shoppers. Asheville is a wonderfully diverse, unique town - you never know who will walk through the door next!
We carry a huge range of comics, from the mainstream appeal of Marvel and DC to the growing popularity of independent publishers, such as Image, IDW and Boom. We also carry a great selection of European comics, through publishers such as Humanoids.
Our expansive back-issue section is replenished daily, and customers are free to pick through thousands of individually bagged and priced comic books. Books from today, from the 40's, and even older can be found on our shelves, and in our Silver + Bronze sections.
The Comic Envy Story
Comic Envy is Asheville's favorite family Comic Book Store! Our staff have a passion for the entire comic book industry that few can match, which is why we've dedicated ourselves and our store to bringing you the finest comic book experience in all of Western North Carolina!
We opened nine years ago, filling a much-needed role as a hub for all of the nerdy types that call Asheville home. As our wonderfully weird and unique customer base grew, we moved from our first location into a much more spacious building, tripling our space and our ability to deliver geeky goodness! At the end of 2017 we shed our skin once again, and moved to the middleof Merrimon Avenue - Asheville's nerd center!
Comics that appeal to (and are safe for!) kids are also a huge part of our store! Right inside the front door, you can find an entire wall full of the best kid-appropriate books currently being published.
Single issues, dollar comics, collected books and toys...we have everything a growing nerd could need! Our staff are always happy to review comics with parents, to make sure young readers aren't accidentally consuming something made for an older audience.
We are always happy to help new readers, both young and old, to discover something they love and can get lost in. Community is an important part of what we do at Comic Envy!
