Corporate book stores or online retailers don’t seem to offer the same feeling you get when picking up a comic book if you don't get it from a local shop.
Apparitions Comics and Books can be found at 2757 Ridgemoor DriveSoutheast
and has been there for the past 20+ years. Owned and operated by David Pirkola, with a small cast of comic book fanatics they supply comic books, graphic novels, toys, books, posters, and gaming supplies to the south east side of Kentwood. While other comic book outlets are around, Apparitions specializes in friendly service and helping you get what ever you're looking for, whether it be an old first printing of X-Men
or the off-the-wall type of comic such as S.C.U.D the Disposable Assassin
by Fire Man Comics.
Apparitions Comics and Books is a treasure troth buried in Grand Rapids, and with a signature banner on the front of the building sporting Wolverine himself, it’s hard to miss. When you get there, tell them that I sent you - and if you go on Wednesday, you'll be sure to see the new comics.
