Lee's Comics

Literary , Books , Book Store

Lee Hester's business ought to have a Grauman's Chinese-style walk of fame outside; some of the biggest living talents in the comic-book industry have made personal appearances at this well-stocked and friendly store. They include artist Alex Ross (who designed Lee's logo), Jim Steranko, national treasure Sergio Aragones, Dan Clowes, novelist Michael Chabon, Batman Adventures animator Paul Dini and more.

Lee maybe even deserves more honor for bringing in people who weren't so famous but who deserved to be, such as Phoebe Gloeckner, author of A Child's Life and Other Stories and Diary of a Teenage Girl, both essential remembrances of the 1970s. When Melinda Gebbie was in town with her and her partner Alan Moore's Lost Girls, Lee's was the sole host for her American appearance.

Lee's Comics carries new and old comics, as well as graphic novels and the hard-to-find stuff. Lee Hester, the founder and owner, has been running the shop since 1982—just try to stump this guy.
