After more than thirteen years as the Triangle’s premier source to fuel your comic book addiction, retailer Ultimate Comics will open the doors at its first ever Raleigh location on Saturday, October 1st. Fans are invited out to celebrate the milestone at the store’s Grand Opening, where they can get free comics, listen to live music, and meet some of the industry’s top writers and artists who will be on hand to do sketches and sign autographs.
The store is the latest addition to the Ultimate family of comic shops, which includes other locations in Durham and Cary, and owner Alan Gill says it’s an opportunity to bring the company’s community-focused approach to the Capital City.
“For us it’s not just about selling books,” says Gill, whose success with Ultimate has spawned both the Durham-based North Carolina Comicon and Raleigh’s Oak City Comicon. “It’s about being a place where fans of all ages and interests can come together to celebrate what they love. That’s what’s driven Ultimate all these years, and it’s what we’re really excited to bring to the comic and pop-culture loving community in Raleigh.”
The Grand Opening kicks off at 10am, when fans are encouraged to come in costume for a chance to win two weekend passes to this year’s North Carolina Comicon. More information can be found at http://www.UltimateComics.com
