Up, Up and Around the Corner

Forbidden Planet, one of the city’s more popular comic book shops, is moving to a larger store nearby at 840 Broadway near Union Square, DNAInfo reports. The new location will have 1,200 additional square feet of space — a sign that this particular shop is faring well in spite of larger concerns in the industry regarding how to attract new fans to old-fashioned superhero stories told on old-fashioned paper. (Just today The Times detailed one rebooted comic company’s plan to make money: Movies.) The new Forbidden Planet will open on July 24. Maybe they should get the Incredible Hulk to help with the move?
