A few weeks ago, A Comic Shop and its companion business, The Geek Easy, decided to seize the opportunity to renovate and expand.
To do this, they have turned to Indiegogo in hopes the community who enjoys these businesses, will help them achieve their goals. There are incentives and rewards for donations, based on the level of your donation, which start as low as $5.
Surely Orlando geeks can spare at least the price of a Starbucks visit to help out A Comic Shop and The Geek Easy with their plans for world domin…er… expansion plans.
A Comic Shop has won the title of “Best Comic Shop” seven times, and been nominated for an Eisner Award. The Geek Easy was opened next door in 2013, but is already well known for its geek trivia nights, concerts, and Friday Night Karaoke.
For more information on how you can help, visit the Indiegogo page. Be sure to watch the video at the top of the page.

Most comic book fans are familiar with the series Y: The Last Man.
Written by Brian K. Vaughan and illustrated by artist Pia Guerra, the comic tells the story of the only man to survive the apparent simultaneous death of every male mammal (barring the same man’s pet monkey) on Earth.
The comic ran for sixty issues via Vertigo Comics and received five Eisner awards.
If you’re a fan of the series, then you’ll want to be at A Comic Shop on February 25, 2011, as the store will be having a special appearance by Pia Guerra.
According to the shop, Guerra will do a Q&A about the series starting at 5:30pm, followed by an autograph session and a party with the artist.
Best of all, the whole event is free.
