We’re reading in NoHo! Head over to Blastoff Comics to get your comics and now also young adult books.
We all know that Blastoff Comics in the NoHo Arts District is the go-to place for all things comics. We also know that they donate portions of their proceeds to various charitable organizations. Last month’s children.org drive was a success and you can see here who your contributions affected. This summer Blastoff Comics has added a special Young Adult reading section.
We asked Harley, Blastoff Comics manager, more about their Young Adult section.
“Over the last month or so I overheard some parents and kids in our shop, saying they wanted to read more "book” books. They especially seemed to have a curiosity for good Young Adult novels. All this got me reminiscing about my days of exploring through books. I remembered all of the amazing novels I'd read when I was young, and how they opened me up to new worlds and expanded my creative thinking. Then it hit me: why not share these amazing stories with my young readers? Let them find the same joy in reading that I once did, and still do.
While we are primarily a comic-book shop, we have always had a large and successful section for novels, and now we will simply be expanding that section. At the moment we have an amazing selection that includes zombies, science fiction, horror, time travel and more. For the Young Adult section we'll be adding a great selection of mainly fantasy novels, but we are mostly just focusing on good stories, as we always have.
If the response from our customers remains as strong as it’s been, you can expect it to stay a part of our shop and continue to grow.”
