Comic Book Store

Destination Comics! spotlight in CBG
The Comic Book is the second comics specialty store opened (in 1989) and operated by Michael Tierney, an Overstreet Price Guide Advisor and also a Trendwatcher for The Comic Buyer's Guide. He was a finalist for the 1987 Star*Reach Retailer of the Year Award, and the 1999 Will Eisner's Spirit of the Comics Retailer of the Year Award. For more details, see the Bonus section.

Along with Michael's original store, Collector's Edition in North Little Rock, The Comic Book Store was a Destination Comics! feature location in issue #1664 (April 2010) of the Comics Buyer's Guide magazine. The Comic Book Store first opened in Little Rock, Arkansas, in June of 1989, moving to the Treasure Hill address in June of 1990.

Michael was also featured in a 2005 Comics Buyer's Guide article about comics retailing, and again in 2009 the High Profile section of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette newspaper, in an article that focussed as much on his publishing (see the Wild Stars History) as on the stores.

How to find us:

You'll find The Comic Book Store in the popular shopping area of West Little Rock, on Treasure Hill Road just off of Rodney Parham Road, two blocks West of Resevoir Road.

Take the Rodney Parhap exit off Highway I-430 and go East (turn left if you're headed South, or right if you're headed North).

From I-630, take the Rodney Parham exit and go to the light at Treasure Hill. If you're headed West, you go straight across the intersection at the exit light, and that's where Rodney Parham begins. If you're headed East, you'll have to take two left turns to get to that point. Also, if you're headed West on I-630 and miss the exit, you could just continue on to I-430 and take it North to Rodney Parham.

From either direction, continue down Rodney Parham Road until you get to the light at Treasure Hill. Then turn between the Taco Bell and Advanced Auto Parts store (on the corners), and you can't miss us on the right.

For those taking the Central Arkansas Transportation (CAT) bus, they do make a stop at the corner.
