AFAIK, the eastern part of Hollywood into downtown has been lacking a good comic shop for a long time. Not so anymore, as Secret Headquarters apparently opened a few months ago on Sunset. While the vibe is a little bit ominous (think Sam Jackson in Unbreakable), it’s a classy place with a decent stock of cool books. From the looks of things, they lean toward the literary and/or arty and they have a selection of original art hanging as well. Definitely not a place to dig through long boxes to fill out your back issue collection, but then again I don’t think that’s the kind of comics consumer they’re catering to. If you’re looking for a more local place to get your weekly fix filled or somewhere you can discover a new writer or artist, Secret Headquarters is probably the place.
