UPDATE: Acme Comics Presents is now located INSIDE Acme Comics at 2150 Lawndale Drive in Greensboro NC’s historic Lawndale Shopping Center!
Young readers are very important to us and we believe that age appropriate comic books can be incredible educational tools. Comic books contain fun stories with imaginative artwork, but they can assist with strengthening reading comprehension, reading speed, spelling, vocabulary, and many other skills that will give readers an educational advantage.
Part of the ongoing Acme Comics Presents mission and ideal is to proudly present a large, specially curated selection of comic books and graphic novels appropriate for and of interest to our young readers.
Some of our best selling graphic novel series include super hero stories like Dogman, 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.
 Also Acme Comics Presents a variety of collectibles for fandoms like Transformers, Godzilla, Robotech, and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. If you love those lines, stop in to find out why people come from very far away to see what we offer!


We do purchase collections of comic books from individuals and in many cases action figures and collectibles that work within our store. 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 collections, so it may take time for us to get back to you. All collection purchases are final.
