Best store in the area! The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Great selection of new comics, back issues, and graphic novels. They also have statues, and action figures. Great place to buy gifts. If you like comics, or know someone who does, I highly recommend stopping in.

This is one of the best comic shops I’ve been too so far! They have a great selection of current series, back stock issues, and even other books such as manga or art books. If something isn’t in stock, they’ll gladly order it for you. They also have a good selection of toys, pops, and storage methods for comics. The staff is wonderful. They make my shopping experience one that I look forward too every Wednesday on New comic book day.

Fun place to go look at things. I would love to buy some of the figures they have but I would need to take out a loan for that lol. Very friendly employees with great customer service skills. I will be returning for Christmas shopping.

My favorite comic shop with all the new issues, a great back issue collection, good deals on trade paperbacks, and good selection of toys and collectibles. I also enjoy the events that hold throughout the year.

Classic comics, new comics, statues, graphic novels, action figures, and more. You can get lost in the back issues or find something amazing that came out this week. The staff is amazing, LGBTQ affirming, and they organize the best Comicon in the state for Raleigh and Durham. They can find a story you've been hunting for, or a Grail. They also do lay away and have the most knowledge about all things comics and pop culture. Go there frequently and see all the awesome sales and events they do and you will become family. They always know your name and love to chat.

I go to Ultimate every month. They save my titles for me in a box, and then recommend others that I might like. You can also find out about upcoming cons there. Super friendly staff. It's a cool place to get your comics fix.

See what goods and treasured findings are available at Ultimate Comics. Don't be shy! If you have a question or concern, ask the store associate and you will be amazed how helpful they are. Check the photos and see the "Ultimate" collectibles and merchandise on the shelves. Comics, graphic novels, action figures/statues and more. Hurry up or you may miss out!

This shop is normally top notch. But they were in the middle of a shop move. Can't wait to see the new shop next year.

Ultimate Comics is seriously a rad comic shop. Every employee is incredibly knowledgeable about popular and obscure comics and pop culture. They have one of the largest selections of comics and collectibles in NC. If they don’t have what you are looking for, they will work tirelessly to find it for you. I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend Ultimate Comics.

They have almost everything you can think of. Some of it is really expensive but worth it. They also have a section for $5 comics if you can't afford anything else in the store. Very clean and well kept. Cool employees were incredibly nice. They even had cardboard cutouts and figurines for sale that were well made. A lot of my money is gonna end up going to them. Would recommend

New place is a bit tucked away but it's worth finding. Big building full of comics and good prices with super friendly staff. Add this one to your comic lineup.
