Parker's Pick



    Opened in March 2008, CHALLENGERS is a comics shop dedicated to one idea: reading comics is really pretty awesome. Years afterward, the medium of comics keeps proving us right. Everyone at Challengers can't wait to show you why that is.

    CHALLENGERS has been honored to be the 2013 recipient of the Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailer Award. We've also been called the 2012 Best Comic Book Shop by New City and the 2010 Best Comic Shop by the Chicago Reader.
