FAO Schwarz is one of the most legendary toy stores in the world, located on NYC’s swanky Fifth Avenue shopping district. And now comics will be added to their product mix, via a boutique operated by Midtown Comics. The mini-boutique will offer graphic novels, hard cover books, apparel, collectibles, and more.
“We are very pleased to be invited to bring our brand to FAO Schwarz, and to share the excitement of the world of comics, graphic novels, and related collectibles with those who might not often come across them,” said Gerry Gladston, co-owner, in a statement.
We don’t have any idea how mini this boutique will be, but we’re sure Torsten will bring back pictures!
