Get your geek on at these stores where the comics and collectibles come with a hefty dose of camaraderie.

Laughing Ogre Comics, Columbus, OH

1 of 15

Is it any surprise that the capital of the state that birthed both Superman and Calvin and Hobbes and hosts the world's most comprehensive research institution devoted to the art form—the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum at Ohio State—would also have a kick-ass comics shop? If it is, let the excitable and friendly folks at Laughing Ogre school you in everything from classic superheroes to of-the-moment indies and labors of love by local artists. Clean and organized, with tons of space for eclectic, obscure back issues and related merchandise (apparel, games, collectible toys), the shops do their pedigree proud. Two offshoots opened recently in Virginia, not far from D.C. laughingogrecomics.com
