WHO WE ARE

Hi! We’re Avalon Comics & Games, a small comic and game shop located in Santa Barbara, CA. Each of us has been reading comics and playing games since we were kids, and we really wanted to share our passion with the community in a place where everyone could feel welcome and safe. So we decided to make that dream a reality and opened Avalon.

Website:  http://www.avaloncomicsgames.com/team/

This video was filmed shortly after we opened and gives a little more insight into who we are and what Avalon means to us.


OUR VISION

Over the last 3 ½ years we have built a welcoming, inclusive space for our diverse community to come share their passion for all things comics and games. We host a variety of events, from weekly game nights to after-hours social events for women and the LGBT community. We've even hosted a DoubleClicks performance (our cover photo), which was amazing (and we’d love to have them back)!

Deadpool came to visit us on Free Comic Book Day this year, which is basically comic book Christmas.



WHAT WE'RE RAISING MONEY FOR

We love and truly believe in what we have built here and in order to better serve the needs of our customers, we are looking to make a major expansion. To do so, we are hoping to raise some additional funds to grow our inventory, pick up some additional fixtures and equipment, and help cover move costs to a new, larger space.

In particular, we are looking to expand our selection of:

Comics and Graphic Novels, especially Indie titles
Board Games
Tabletop Roleplaying Games (DnD, Pathfinder, Shadowrun, etc.)
Game Accessories (DnD & Pathfinder minis, dice sets, card game supplies, etc.)
Kickstarter Comics, Graphic Novels, Games, and Tabletop Supplements

If you would like to help support a community-oriented comic and game shop, we would welcome any donation and signal boost you can offer.

Thank you & much love.

Stay nerdy, my friends!

It’s official! We finally have a lease for our new space! We are super excited to announce that we will be moving to the Patterson Center, in Goleta!

Provided there are no issues or delays, we should be able to move in to our new place by the end of the month! We’ll have a better idea of exactly when the move will take place once the contractor begins the interior improvements, which should start this week.

Thank you all for your patience while we worked to find our new home and negotiate the lease. It’s been a much longer and more stressful process than we anticipated, but we are so thrilled with our new location! We can’t wait for you to see it!

I would also like to thank everyone for their donations and support. You guys are amazing and we love being able to share our passion with you. We hope that our move to Goleta will allow us to bring that passion to even more awesome fellow nerds.

Hello everyone!

I know it's been an age since I posted an update, and I'm so sorry about that. I haven't forgotten about you, it's been a much longer process finding a new space and working out the lease than I had anticipated. I didn't want to keep saying "We're working on it" over and over. But I'm very happy to tell you that I am reviewing a new lease now! I don't want to say where we are moving until I have it's signed, but I hope to have a new update for you in the next week or so with that very exciting news! I can't wait to tell you!

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has donated. Your support is tremendous and we appreciate it more that words can say. This little shop of ours is a dream come true. We love bringing you comics and games and awesome events, and look forward to doing so in our new space very soon.

Much love, and stay nerdy!

I just wanted to offer a very big thank you to everyone who has donated already. Your support and generosity mean the world to us!

For some additional information, we are looking to move from Santa Barbara to Goleta. We want to grow the comic and graphic novel titles we carry, especially Indie books. We are also looking to increase our board game and tabletop RPG selection, as well as gaming accessories (dice sets, card game supplies, DnD & Pathfinder minis, etc.).

Thank you.
