The Thompson Twins are huge comic book fans and have explored a number of Minnesota comic book shops with their Uncle Roddrick, but their favorite shop happens to be: Uncle Sven's Comic Shoppe. The shop has been in its St. Paul location since 1982, and though it's small, there's a lot packed into the little shop.

Why did Heidi and I choose Uncle Svens as the Twins favorite shop? Honestly, it's because it's my favorite comic shop in the state and the workers there are always wonderful and generous with Dylan and Parker when we visit (usually after a trip to the Science Museum of Minnesota).

But! There are also plenty of wonderful comic shops in Twin Cities (to say nothing of the rest of Minnesota), and some of them even get a mention in the book.

Here's a quick list of some of the ones I know and have shopped at:
Source Comics & Games (largest comic book store in the Twin Cities) 10,000 square feet of books, figures, games, cards, etc.

Comic Book College (claims to be the oldest comic book store in Minnesota). Originally opened in 1974 and moved to its current location in 2017. Originally it was Comic City, then in 1987-1988 it became The Collect of Comic Book Knowledge... shortened to the current name Comic Book College.

Mind's Eye Comics is the the only black-owned comic book store in Minnesota.

And a few others:
--Midway Used & Rare Bookstore
--Hot Comics and Collectibles
--Nostalgia Zone Comic Books
--Dreamers Vault Games - Burnsville
--Content Bookstore (which is a great place to get signed work by Benjamin Percy, whether it be his novels, non-fiction, or comics)

Ben also gets a mention in the book as one of the character's favorite comic book writers. And a few other local legends are name-checked as well: Peter Gross, Doug Mahnke, Charles Schulz, Chris Jones, Dan Jurgens, and Steve Sack. Oh, and you can’t forget Neil Gaiman. He used to live nearby and frequently "stealth-signed" books at some of my favorite book stores.
