Acme Comics is a locally owned and operated, full service comic book store. Established in 1983, we are the oldest and largest comic book store in the Greensboro, High Point, Winston Salem North Carolina area known as The Triad.

We are a full service comic book store offering weekly new releases of comic books from major and small press publishers, over one hundred thousand back issues dating back to the 1980s, and a variety of vintage comic books from the 1940s through the 1970s.

In addition to new comic books, we carry a vast selection of paperback and hardcover collections as well as original content graphic novels. Not only material from Marvel Comics and DC Comics, we support a variety of publishers such as Image Comics, Dark Horse Comics, IDW Publishing, Boom Studios, Dynamite Entertainment, Oni Press, and many more!

Our goal is to use all of our experience and resources to connect you with the best comic books and graphic novels available. If what you are interested has sold out, we are happy to re-order or even make a special order for you.

Whether you’re making changes to the titles on your free subscription list, searching for that elusive back issue, or just asking questions as a comics new-comer, our friendly, knowledgeable staff will be happy to help you.

At Acme Comics, young readers are very important to us and we believe that age appropriate comic books can be tremendous educational tools. Comic books contain fun stories with imaginative artwork, but they can assist with strengthening reading comprehension, reading speed, spelling, vocabulary, and so much more.
Not content to have a small kids section, Acme Comics Presents exists to proudly present a large, specially curated selection of comic books and graphic novels appropriate for and of interest to young readers.
Some of our best selling graphic novel series include super hero stories like G Man, fantasy stories like Bone and Amulet, and adventures stories like Lumberjanes.
We also regularly stock educationally focused graphic novels popular with parents and teachers such as Human Body Theater, Reading with Pictures, and the Science Comics series.
Acme Comics Presents is located at 2148 Lawndale Drive in Lawndale Shopping Center immediately next door to Acme Comics.
UPDATE: As of December 31st the Acme Comics Presents storefront at 2148 Lawndale Drive will close for business and the main Acme Comics will Present the product lines that have proven themselves to be successful and you have come to look forward to from us! That means Funko Pop Vinyl figures, Transformers, Godzilla related collectibles, and, of course, the finest selection of all ages material possible! We thank you for your support of our venture and we look forward to continuing to refine the Acme Comics Presents mission in all new ways beyond the storefront!


We do purchase collections of comic books from individuals. Our main interest is in super-hero comics from the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. There are exceptions to that rule from other time periods, of course. If you’re looking to sell your collection of comic books or action figures here are the steps we ask you to complete. 1.) To the best of your ability, make a list of your comic books by title and issue number. 2.) Email your list to us or bring it by in person. Once we have checked your list against what we have available, if we determine that we have need of anything you have presented, we will follow up with you. Be aware that an average of twenty people per week approach us about evaluating their collections, so it may take time for us to get back to you. CONTACT US
