Alliance Comics coming to Federal Hill

alliance comicsA new comic store called Alliance Comics is opening in Federal Hill Sept. 2.

The store, at 904 Light St., will be the third location for Alliance Comics, which also has stores in Bowie and Silver Spring.

I wasn't able to get a hold of the owner(s) of the store, but according to the Web site, Alliance Comics will offer graphic novels, toys, cards and, of course, comics. The site also lists a number, 410-685-0021, but I called it a couple times today and nobody answered.

The space formerly housed Theodore's Cleaners and Tailors, is about halfway between the Maryland Science Center and the Cross Street Market.

Thanks for coming by Sam! I hope you'll come in after we open September 2. Federal Hill seems like it will be a great fit for us, the neighborhood is very vibrant and upbeat.

As a correction, we are actually moving our Bowie location to Baltimore. So we will be fully stocked from opening day with comics, graphic novels, shirts, toys and cool stuff like bacon beans!

Our phone line isn't up yet, but feel free to email me; it's linked off our website.

I am so excited! For a comic book nerd like me, this is huge news - within walking distance to my house, yay!

it's nice to see another comic shop open up in this city. i'll check alliance out when it opens, but i'll send my regular business to amazing spiral in hampden. nothing personal, i just don't wanna drive across town in traffic every wednesday. but that's conversely awesome for fed-hill comic fans who hate doing the same to get to hampden.
