About

Traverse City’s Top Comics has been Northern Michigan’s premiere comic book and collectibles shop since 1988! Originally opened in August of 1988 as Top of the Ninth by Bill West, the store initially focused on sports cards and memorabilia with a smaller emphasis on comic books.  Bill’s sense of humor and warm nature made sure Top adapted over the years to become the destination for comics in the region for over two decades.  Sadly, we lost Bill in October of 2006 and have been trying to live up to his legacy ever since.  After some adjustment and an eventual relocation down the road in October of 2009 we reemerged as Top Comics.

Owned and operated today by Mike Akerley and Doug Mead we strive to insure we are your one stop shop for any comic related needs.  Make a stop at the Top and let us help find what you are looking for. We have an extensive selection of new single issues, vintage comics, collected editions, shirts, posters, comic collecting supplies, and figures. Whether you are trying to find a new release or fill in the gaps in your existing collection, Top Comics has the books you want.  Parking off the alley behind the building is available and feel free to come in through the back entrance.
