New comic book store

How cool is a downtown comic book store? Way cool, I say!

In addition to the Marvel, DC and other well-known comic book publishers, Southern Fried Comics also features graphic novels and indies, including those from the Scott Pilgrim series and Border City: One Man Army.


Posters, T-shirts and other items are available at the store, located at 136 East Front Street, Hattiesburg, MS.

I went to the grand opening today — which was well attended even with the crazy rain — and had a great time.
Food and wine was provided by Bianchi’s Pizzeria next door.


A group of artists (Will Brooks, Marcus Howell, Dustin Parker, & Monty Smith) were scheduled to be there to sketch live and talk about their work, and there were freebies, door prizes and more during the event. A band played later in the evening, and there were children’s activities earlier in the day but I missed both of those events.


I hope you get a chance to stop by and check out the store if you are ever in Hattiesburg.
