About Us

Here at Nick’s Comic Strip, we hope to bring our customers back to a simpler time.  A time when the hardest decision was Batman or Superman, Star Wars or Star Trek, Marvel or DC.  When you finally emptied that piggy bank, stuffed with weeks of allowance, for the missing piece of your collection.

Thanks to the dream of one and the effort of many, that hope is a reality.  In 2016 we opened a small shop to buy, sell, and trade with other collectors.  Popularity grew, as did our inventory and we outgrew this space. Coupled with our online success we made the decision to relocate.  Our search for a highly accessible location where current and new customers could identify us with ease presented itself in Danvers, MA.

Our new location on Route 114 in Danvers opened in 2018 and offers a clean, bright and easily navigated store.  This larger venue demanded added staff in order to meet all our customers needs. Along with the owner Nick and store manager Chris, we welcomed Oscar.  Each with the knowledge and versatility to assist collectors, fans, and families alike.

We welcome everyone to call or visit anytime with questions, request, and comments.  Don’t forget to visit our online store, right here.  We also sell through Facebook, Ebay, and Mercari.  Nick’s Comic Strip would love to earn your business and trust, hoping you will join us often.  Whether buying or selling, Nick’s is here to fulfill your needs.

Thank you from everyone at Nick’s Comic Strip

Nick

Owner

The “King of Pops” started with the original pop culture collectible, PEZ. Now he enjoys collecting for others….and being the “King”.

Chris

Manager

“Vinyl expert” and book enthusiast. Chris has a real flare for universal monster memorabilia.

Born and raised in the suburbs of Massachusetts, growing up listening to copious amounts of music and reading comics…that were not age appropriate.  Having been turned on to music by various sources.  The Grateful Dead and Springsteen from his parents, prince from an older sister and punk from spending summers away at camp.  Chris went on to manage Tower Records in Burlington.  Anyone who worked there knows it was an unique experience only to ruin any form of adulthood.  It was not unlike what is depicted in Empire Records (written by a former employee).  All this lead him here, his never ending love of pop culture nonsense.  Vinyl is Chris’ main focus in collecting.  These days, he sticks with mostly independent horror comics, Elite wrestling figures and more recently Lego Architecture sets.

Oscar

Sales/Book Specialist

Greatest passion is reading Marvel. Oscar is currently collecting figures and classic toys.

Born and raised in the concrete jungle known as New York City where I learn the game. I have always been a collector. From pokemon cards to sneakers, toys to comics. Growing up Hispanic and living in a multicultural atmosphere, I develop a taste for all type of music and hobbies. Some would say I am well rounded. A “closet” Nerd while being a jock, I played many sports in high school. I was the captain of both basketball and football, winning State Champions back to back years.  When it comes to collecting I’m a package collector, sealed in box is my euphoria. I’m a huge fan of Transformers and enjoy collecting G1 boxed figures. Comic books are my passion though. I have been collecting for the past 20 years on and off. Nothing but first appearances and keys. I’m a Marvel boy all the way, but I do enjoy some DC stories and characters. From Golden age to modern age, I’m always reading, researching, and #coll3cting.
