Masks are required for entry and hand sanitizer is provided for use.

We are limiting in-store shopping to 5 people at a time to help our customers practice social distancing.

We want a safe and fair browsing experience for everyone!

Curbside pick-up options are still in effect and if you’d like to arrange an order for pick-up, please reach out to us.

And please remember if you arrive at our shop and there is a line to get in but you just want to pick-up (no browsing) you can come to the door and see one of us to get your order processed right away. No need to wait in line if you’re just picking up.

Thanks for understanding and if you have any questions, shoot us an e-mail at royalcomicsny@gmail.com or call us at 718-793-0542.

Curbside Pick-Ups Are Back!

In compliance with Phase 1 of the Reopening of NYC, we are now able to offer pick-ups again! To pick up any purchases, please come to our front door and we will bring your items to you at the door. If a line develops, please take note of the floor markings outside the store to encourage social distancing while waiting on line. Alternatively, you can call us at 718-793-0542 option 4 if you would like to remain in your car and we can run your pre-paid items to you.

Monday: Closed

Tuesday: Closed

We are so glad to be able to offer pick-ups again and hopefully in a few weeks we will be eligible for Phase 2 which would allow limited in-store browsing and shopping.
