Owner/Employee Info/Comments:
If you want something, we probably got it. New comics on the stands, tons of back issue boxes. Tradepaperbacks, Manga, and Graphic Novels included. Posters, wallscrolls, statues, toys, gaming books such as Deadlands, D&D, white wolf, and even some Marvel stuff. Also Pokemon, Legends of the Five Rings and Magic The Gathering, among other card games. Our strictly *used* merchandise includes Playstation and Nintendo games, many CDs, LPs, and cassettes, as well as movies and books of an ecclectic nature. We provide a holds box policy whereby you can order comics from Previews magazine (Diamond Distribution), we hold them for you when they come in, and you get a 25% discount off the price (15% on toys, apparel, and action figures).

  1. The Great Escape has four stores (Nashville & Madison, TN and Louisville and Bowling Green, KY). The Nashville store moved to new location in late 2010 after over 30 years at a location a couple of blocks from Vanderbilt University. The Nashville store has one one of the largest collections of back issues in TN. Very good selection of old magazine (many comic stores don't carry magazines). They also have a whole room with 1/2 price comics. They have a large selection of very desirable silver and golden age comics. If you are into records the Great Escape has an unbelievable selection of 45s, LPs and CDs of all kinds. [10/17/11]

  2. Large selection of new and used TPB's and graphic novels; decent selection of new comics; large selection of back issue comics; cards, collectibles, video games & consoles; comic store is half of The Great Escape - the other half of the store sells cds, vinyl, dvds, posters, music memoriblia, back issues of music mags and in the back of the store they have a large selection of back issue Playboys and various other adult mags; staff is very laid back. [7/18/10]

  3. This is an awesome store. The Broadway location is divided into two sections, one with an incredible selection of used CDs and DVDs and one with an equally incredible selection of comics and comic merchandise. They have pretty much every new comic you can think of on one wall and in the middle is a large back issue "island" that has everything. The store has a lot of stuff without being severely cluttered like a lot of other comic stores. The selection just cannot be beat. Employees are generally friendly, though on one occasion I stood at the front counter for 3 minutes or so before I was waited on, and even then the employee did not say "thank you" or anything. In fact, it seemed that taking my money was a bother to him. But I will say that this was one employee out of many, and I won't judge the store on his actions. The rest seem generally friendly and helpful. [12/23/05]
