Midwest Living Review
A Marvel fan since the '60s, I love bringing my 9-year-old son to One Stop Comics in Oak Park (10 miles west of the Loop) for my--I mean his--superhero tales. We buy the classic Batman and Spiderman series for bedtime reading. One Stop Comics stocks 500,000 comics and 5,000 graphic novels, plus a huge back-issue inventory, from classic to contemporary comics. Owner Rick Manzella also gives out freebies for national Free Comic Book Day.
