Fantastic comic shop. I love walking out with my comics hand and the view of the Empire State Building up above. The staff are sweet, friendly, and always up for a chat. The store is clean, organized, and stocked with a huge variety of books. If you're book is out of stock then they'll happily special order it for and in the meantime there's always something great to read in their inventory. This is the best comic shop in Manhattan.

The ONLY store in NYC, as far as I'm concerned.

The staff is great compared to some of the bigger stores. Very knowledgeable and friendly. They are the "Cheers" of comic book stores. Two thumbs up.

Every time I'm in New York I make sure to drop by Jim Hanley's Universe. I love the store design and the people there are always very friendly. Well worth a visit, and it's right by the Empire State building!

JHU is absolutely THE destination for me. The staff are friendly and helpful, they've got almost anything I'm ever looking for (and if not will happily special-order), and the inventory is just massive. I love this store.
