One of the oldest stores in New York State, selling comics since 1982. We have an extensive back issue selection in Silver and Bronze age comics.

Electric City has a very good selection of Silver Age comics. I have been able to pick almost any Silver Age issue at random, say The Brave and The Bold where Copperhead is squeezing Batman on the cover (The Brave and The Bold #78, which I couldn't remember) and they had it. I think in that instance they had two copies and I could pick the condition. I got the first Death of Superman (Superman #149, an imaginary tale) in Fair/Good for $2.75. Their prices are good. They have some key DCs from the early Fifties. Their display area is not large enough to hold their entire stock so be sure and ask about a particular issue if you cannot find it.
Electric City has recent back issues on the racks for cover price, and they make a point of setting aside stock issues for the bins. Almost any recent issue is available. Their emphasis on Silver Age issues is noticeable when you start to look for Seventies issues: they have few. They have several quarter boxes of overstock. They have new comics, books and action figures. They do specialize in comics; no cards or games. They have a backstock of magazines, Playboys and Penthouses inaccessible to children. The store is not particularly kid or female friendly. There are signs warning adults about their child's behavior, and such.
Electric City is well lit and clean, but is small and feels crowded. The store is on a bus line but is a trip from downtown. A lit sign hangs out over the street, but it does not have a big window front for posters. Definitely call ahead and get directions. Electric City is worth the trip for any Silver Age collectror!
