About Atomik Comiks

Hi Folks! If you’re reading this you must be wondering what this site is all about…or extremely bored and we can definitely help with both.

If you’ve never been to our store before this handy-dandy website is here for us to introduce ourselves to you. Once you are done skimming this brief how-do-you-do and decide you want to pay us a visit you can find a nifty little map over on the LOCATION page to help you find us.

So who are we? In a nutshell Atomik Comiks is the largest comic book store in Tennessee. Established in February of 1990 we quickly grew from a tiny little shop on the corner of East Main St in Johnson City to a 5000 sq foot building where we currently reside. We proudly offer new and vintage comics as well as some related collectibles like toys, t-shirts, posters, and other cool geeky knickknacks.

Are you a backissue hunter? Has that lone issue of (fill-in your favorite title here) on your checklist been taunting you for years? With over eleventy million backissues on hand (hyperbole aside we have A LOT) we probably have what you are looking for. If not (slim chance) we can get it for you.

Backissues aren’t your thing but you really like to read the classics? Well, we can help with that too. We keep our trade paperback inventory fully loaded. And IF we don’t have it in stock just ask and we will get it for you.

Questions? Never hesitate to inquire about anything we have to offer or what my favorite inker was from the silver age.

I am an avid (abbynormal) collector myself of most anything that reminds me of my incredibly happy and lost youth. I proudly own the entire Marvel comic line from 1961 to 1982 along with most Marvel memorabilia from the 60‘s & 70’s. Still waiting for the super powers I always imagined I would manifest due to these possessions. I Dig on comics in general, Sports (the three real ones hoops, football, and our glorious national pastime), 60’s & 70’s music, and generally anything retro.

Best wishes to you in all your endeavors and may this plane of existence be kind to you and your loved ones. As Tiny Tim said God Bless us everyone.
