You’re probably wondering who we are? Well, we wonder that ourselves most days. Thanks to our former partner Randall who decided running a store wasn’t for him, so instead of closing the store we looked at each other and said, “What the heck, Let’s do this!” Thus, Nerd Out Comics was born. So who are we, you ask again? Just a bunch nerds who love comics, movies, tv shows and music. Meet the Nerd Out Family:
Glenn Papp, Nerd-in-Charge
Glenn has been collecting comic books for more than 35 years. He never dreamed he would own his own store and now it seems like more of a nightmare – only kidding, folks. Glenn manages all the ordering, subscriptions, reviews all collections and manages the store day-to-day.

Marketing executive by day, Comic book store owner by night. You won’t catch Tanya in the store very often, but that’s only because she’s keeping the business in order.

He’s kinda like Pizza dog, but cooler. Digby is usually chillin’ on his pillow in the corner of the store, he’ll greet you with a few barks, just to let his Dad know you’ve arrived (we don’t need a bell!). Digby made his way into our lives (and hearts) – and the store wouldn’t be complete without him.
