Arcane Comics, Seattle

Open since 2004 in funky Ballard, Arcane Comics lives large as Seattle's come-as-you-are, Cheers-like clubhouse for all kinds of geekery. A weekly subscription program in which preordered titles get put into a personal box is a draw for die-hard fans; subscribers also have no deposit or title minimums, an easy online account for requesting new issues that are automatically bagged and boarded, and a 10 percent discount off everything else in the store. Monthly “Best Reads” (40 percent off the first volume of a new series), nerdy gadgets (Batman bottle openers, Dr. Who boxers, Game of Thrones figurines), and stock that runs the gamut from surprising back issues to local indies to popular trades is a boon for the more casual browser. arcanecomicbooks.com
