Don’t miss the issue that you have been waiting for all month! We at High Octane have all been there so we’ve developed a subscription system in the form of comic boxes. New comics are placed in the subscriber’s boxes and the remainder are placed on the shelf for sale to the general public. We ask that you come in at least once per month to pick up your comics, and give us a call if you will be out of town for a few weeks or are going to move. The best part is that we put the comics in the boxes before any are sold.


High Octane easily carries the largest and most diverse selection of graphic novels and trade paperbacks.  With a current selection of nearly 5000 titles, it is easy to find the right book for you.  Ask our knowledgeable staff to help select the perfect read for your mood.  We also offer a punch card promotion with our graphic novels, and the 11th one is us! ($20 value)
