Torpedo Comic’s origins date back nearly thirty years when owner John Dolmayan began selling books and purchasing small collections in the greater Los Angeles area under the name Middle Earth Comics. Cultivating the small but successful comic book convention market in Southern California, we were able to grow the business steadily as well as improve our inventory of vintage comic books, comic book art , comic book related toys/statues , as well as graphic novels and trade paperbacks.
Torpedo Comics has expanded nationally exhibiting at most major comic book and pop-culture conventions in the United States. Our eleven booth display reaches nearly one million comic con attendees per year and growing.
Torpedo Comics has recently opened our first brick and mortar store in Las Vegas, Nevada. Comprised mostly of comics ranging from 1938 to present, we proudly display nearly fifty thousand modern back issues and nearly ten thousand golden-age , silver-age, and bronze-age back issues. Thousands of CGC and CBCS graded books grace our walls, values ranging from $50 to tens of thousands. We also carry thousands of vintage toys, statues, and props dating back to 1908 with fan favorites like Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon, Little Lulu, and hundreds more.
Torpedo Comics also carries hundreds of new issues available every Wednesday with a full concierge service VIP pull section available to our torpedo comics members. Torpedo comics has the largest inventory of trade paperbacks, graphic novels, and art books in the west coast with literally thousands of choices available in store.
