Best of Pasadena: Comics Factory

by Patrick on April 9, 2009

The second in our series of “Best of Pasadena” videos features the Best Comic Book Store in Pasadena, Comics Factory.  In this video, store manager Sean Jackson talks about the evolution of comic shops, the rise of manga and recommends a few titles, as well.  It’s a little bit longer than some of the other videos we’ve done, but we think it’s pretty interesting.  Sean really knows comics.  Enjoy.

    Nice work, Patrick. One other good reason to visit Comics Factory: It’s right next door to Zankou Chicken (and down the street from Book Alley).

    I love it! And how ever did you set that music to the opening shots? Your pretend talk show destroys my pretend talk show. You should take this show on the road!

    If this video doesn’t get Sean Jackson laid, then, there’s really no hope for the other comic book guys out in the world. He is so cute! (And so are you, Patrick, but we already knew that…)

    The best (or worst) thing about this video is that I had to cut about 20 minutes of really interesting stuff out of it. He had so much information and was such a good talker, we could’ve put together a half-hour episode out of it.

    Great video! We should be doing more of them…

    Comics Factory is more than just the Best of Pasadena; I think they’re friendlier, more knowledgeable, better-stocked, and provide better customer service for kids and families than their more-famous competition on Melrose Avenue.

    They have a great selection of 2000AD graphic novels; I can’t get them at Vroman’s, so they’re my go-to place.
