COMIC BOOK HEAVEN: A Short Film Follows The End of A Queens Old School Comic Store

Joe Leisner has spent over 60 years in the comic book business and now, at 81, he is ready to retire. Unfortunately for the Queens neighborhood where Comic Book Heaven has stood for decades, the scent of old paper and cigarette smoke will fade away into the ether, leaving a hole where thousands of nerds wasted hours searching for a specific comic issue and reminding us that independent comic stores provide more than a place to buy back issues, they give nerds a place to hang out, discuss characters and feel connected to their fellow dorks.

So check out E.J. McLeavey-Fisher’s short film after the break and hopefully, it will inspire you to visit your local store and buy a couple issues.
