Did you know that some of the most popular movies today stem from comic books?  
Spider-Man, Ironman, Batman, and Superman are only a few of the most popular comic book movie adaptations... Do any others come to mind?

Comics are so powerful because they unlock the imagination, connecting us to interesting characters and stories that commonly address serious societal and cultural issues. 

They are created by talented artists that help convey knowledge in a fashionable and enjoyable manner, with amazing visuals and a special format to help take in and remember information much easier.  Comics engage us in unique and challenging ways. 

Comic/pop culture is alive and well in Reno thanks to one of our gems, Coffee N' Comics, the only place in Reno you can enjoy comic culture life over good drinks, service, eats, entertainment, special guests, and an atmosphere that welcomes all and encourages guests to be themselves.

Come dressed up as your favorite comic character, come in to geek out with your friends and family over pop culture, get some pictures and autographs from some celebrities, come in for a nice cup of coffee and get lost in a book, or simply come in just to hang out and relax. 


My kids have an obsession with comic books (Omega Frog Comics has a great selection for kids at The Outlets at Sparks) and I'm so happy that I can take them to Coffee N' Comics so they can enjoy their comics in the best atmosphere ever and grow up in this wonderful world of fantasy.

There's also a big event coming up called Silver Age Comic-Con that will be on June 11, 2022 @ Circus Circus in Reno.  


For those who don't know about these types of events, they usually take place at convention centers where vendors, fans, and special guests come together to celebrate pop and comic culture.  

Silver Age Comic-Con, because of its size,  will allow for more intimate connections, and space to enjoy yourself, as opposed to being pushed around in bigger crowds such as the ones found at the biggest Comic-Con event in San Diego. 

BoxLunch at Meadowood Mall is a rad store that has tons of merchandise that caters to anime/comic/pop culture fans.  You can find clothing, bags, hats, dishware, toys, and more.  Omega Frog Comics also sells lots of clothing and collectibles. 

Thanks for dropping by. If you like this kind of content, you can follow me on Instgram where I post about more places and things to do and please feel free to share my website with anyone you think may benefit from it.

Peace, Love, & Kindness,
Kat

Sparks 2nd Location Kickstarter

Places like Coffee N' Comics help make life special by providing a welcoming atmosphere to hang out and be yourself, all over good eats, company, and drinks.  

The owners, Raymond and Alex, want to bring this magic to Sparks with a second location and have started a Kickstarter campaign to make it as epic as possible. 

Reno is a special city because of the support that is here that encourages individuals to pursue their goals as entrepreneurs.  

Like many other local business owners, Raymond and Alex are living out their dreams, creating businesses made of passion, dedication, love, and commitment to provide something unique and valuable for our small town.
