Our Harvard Sq location is permanently closed, but please visit our five other Boston-area stores!

This Harvard Square location has now closed permanently as of January 22nd, 2023. This page will remain as a tribute to all of our friends and customers, for being part of the amazing experience of being a comic shop and pop culture watering hole from 1991 until now. Please check out our other five Boston-area locations that are still open and almost as cool as we were!

Due to unpopular demand, the Harvard Square store will be closing nine days earlier than previously promised. ...or perhaps a year later than previously promised, as the next time Jan 20-21 falls on a Sat-Sun will be 2024! Hey, it just wouldn't be New England Comics if the announcements weren't confusing and inaccurate. Enjoy your weekend and/or year, everyone!
