Home / Culture / Van’s Comics & Cards



Whether you’re reading up on the latest superhero showdown, browsing for a unique board game or trying your hand at comics, card games, manga, or model building for the first time, Van Peeples, owner of Van’s Comics and Cards, can point you in the right direction.

Peeples first opened his store in 1996, not far from his current space, where he relocated in October 2011. Besides the store’s expansive selection and game space, which hosts tournaments for games such as “Magic: The Gathering” and “Yu-Gi-Oh,” one of the biggest draws is its constant discounts—20 percent off all new comics, trade paperbacks, games and back issues for subscribers.

“I just want to give my customers a better deal,” Peeples says.

That mindset, he says, is one of the factors that’s kept Van’s open for 19 years. —Micah Smith
