Help me name a comic store

Postby Aergis » Mon Jan 16, 2012 7:15 pm

We're putting ideas together to possibly (lots of contingency still) of opening a comic and collectibles shop, for funzies.
We have tons of products in mind but we haven't settled on a name yet.

the first idea we liked was The Bat Cave. Though the more I think about it the more I'm on the fence.
What do you think? Have ideas? Let's hear em!

There is a place in Toronto my friend liked going to. It is called the Silver Snail. https://www.silversnail.com/main/
I would personally choose something like that over the Bat Cave. Talk about your favorite comic book hero and villain and mesh the two? The Red Skull + Hawkeye = The Red Hawk.

Never mind.

You may want to consider the availability of domain names for your online presence. Ideally you should get a domain to match your store name so that people can find you easily.

Preferably a .com

I kind of like "Sodium 16". The chemical symbol for sodium being Na, so when you have 16 of them together...

The domain nananananananananananananananana.com is available, and the jingle for your commericals writes itself.

Sodium16.com is also available, as is sodiumsixteen.com


The wife suggests "Red Kryptonite". What a geek.

Or

Die Wesley Die (.com available)

I retract my previous statement, and have to go with that, but only if you have a similarly obnoxious flashing neon sign.

Maingeekadin!

Seriously, though, I would love something more evocative of brightness, playfulness, and welcoming than the Bat Cave. Something like The Rogues Gallery, Planet Krypton (especially if you can get the silly Super Friends art a la Kingdom Come), or the Hall of Justice.

Use Atomic Comics, 3 of them closed in Phoenix last year so you can carry on the legacy as they were some of the best shops in the country at promotions.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

Rothifer mentioned the Silver Snail - which I've been to many times. Great name and it has more than one location (there's another one in Ottawa). The only other one I've really encountered is one called "The Comic Book Shoppe". Bah, boring name.

As some one who doesn't know much about comics I guess I'm missing out on what's cool about Sodium 16. :|
