Best Service / Retailer Award!
We are proud to announce that this year Cosmic Comix & Toys was awarded the BEST SERVICE/RETAILER AWARD from the Catonsville Chamber of Commerce! We feel very honored and couldn’t be happier. Here’s what they had to say about us…
“What neighborhood business hosts exciting activities that draw tons of people into our community each year, supports numerous local events AND features a ceiling inspired by the Sistine Chapel? That would be Cosmic Comix, winner of the award for outstanding Service/Retailer.
“Now in their 25th year of operations, Cosmic Comix features a friendly and knowledgeable staff with a huge selection of big name and independent comic books, trade paperbacks, graphic novels, action figures and much more. They regularly host innovative events such as Batman Day or the Cosmic Madness countdown patterned on March Madness basketball tournaments. These unique events draw new people into the community on a steady basis throughout the year. In addition, they encourage literacy by attracting an audience that often struggles to find appeal in words alone, making reading exciting and accessible with campaigns such as Free Comic Book Day.
“Recently, Cosmic Comix contributed an invaluable artistic asset to the community with the completion of a 1300-square foot ceiling mural depicting the history of comic books from the introduction of Superman in 1938 to the modern day zombie epic The Walking Dead.
“Of course, Cosmic Comix supports the community well beyond the walls of their shop. For instance, they sponsor the Frederick Road Fridays concert series, participate in the Arts & Crafts festival, and serve on the Chamber’s Business Promotion Committee. As one resident noted, ‘there is rarely something going on in Catonsville that Cosmic Comix doesn’t donate their time to assist in.’
“For their outstanding and creative service to the community, the Greater Catonsville Chamber of Commerce is pleased to recognize Cosmic Comix as the best Service/Retailer of 2015.
