Rebel Base Comics & Toys
- Open Now
In my opinion the best comic shop in Charlotte, maybe even North Carolina. Great selection of back issues, alternate covers, action figures, imported goods, graded comics and more. The staff is friendly and can tell you about obscure stuff that you don't think is even popular. I was looking for a certain cover or a certain recent mini series. They offered to order it for me. The only downside is it is kind of claustrophobic in there when there is a lot of people. Maybe try to go at the less busy times. However the small location makes you feel like you are in a comic book shop. It does become a pain when you want to dig through boxes, but this really isn't their fault. They did some recent moving around which made it a lot better. Even though there is a lot of cool stuff, it's still a clean place to shop. I seriously recommend anyone to check out Rebel Base, even if you aren't into comics. They can get you started for sure.
Kinda easy to miss until you realize you have to go downstairs to get inside. A lot of stuff in the space they have here. Good selection of figures, statues and comics and especially loose figures. Also I would say the prices are very fair compared to most comic book shops. I came here on vacation but if I lived in the area, I would come here 1 or 2 times each month to keep updated on what they have. If you are into geeky things and collectibles, I highly recommend this place.
These folks are super helpful and knowledgeable. The comics selection is immense and don't get me started on the toys! The store itself is like a treasure trove of nostalgia for me! If you were a child of the 80s and 90s, do yourself a favor and make this place a destination to visit!
Stopped in on 03/31/23 to check this place out since we are from out of town and had a good experience there. The amount of stuff is overwhelming here so be prepared. From comics, pops, action figures, and statues it's a lot to take in. I was able to find some comics I couldn't find unless I went to ebay and they were cover price which was a huge plus! They also carry cgc/cbcs books which if I had more time I would have bought some but time was not on my side. The girl that was there was friendly and was able to help me locate a comic my daughter was wanting so props to her. Overall the experience was nice and I hope that they expand their space to lessen that claustrophobic feeling when you are in the aisles cause there isn't much room to look thru the boxes without bumping into people. Definitely check out the Rebel Base and don't let the Empire know!
Absolutely amazing store, great customer service and great deals for free comic book day. Everyone was nice and helpful. I highly recommend coming to this comic shop.
