The geekiest spots in Philly.
Geeky Philly: What to do once you've seen the lightsabers and droids at the Star Wars show.
It wouldn't be a geeky trip without at least a look inside a comic book shop. Fortunately, Philly has two stores worth a visit, each with its own flavor.
Brave New Worlds in Old City keeps its focus on new releases as well as graphic novels and other alternative works. The shop also has tons of toys and figurines from tiny up to a full-size Darth Vader statue/model. While the amount of stuff seems overwhelming at first, the selection is actually well edited compared to some comic stores we've been to. It all adds up to an easily browsable experience. 45 N. 2nd St.
Fat Jack's Comic Crypt on the other hand seems to have just about every comic ever published. But fear not! The store's not a disorganized den. All the back issues are neatly tucked away in crates toward the back. Newer stuff is up front, along with trading cards and other collectibles. The staff can help you find what you need; the resident cat is just for fun. 2006 Sansom St.
