Why I Love La Grange: The people of La Grange are what makes the town so special. Every day I meet fun, engaging people that help make Chimera’s Comics what a great place it is.

Why I Love Chimera’s Comics: The shop is a great place for people to come together to share the things they love and find new things to enjoy. I love being a part of that kind of environment.

Why I Love La Grange: La Grange is a community full of hard working people who followed their dreams and opened dozens of wonderful small businesses. More than that, the citizens of La Grange are unwavering in their support of these small businesses. I’m proud our first store is in La Grange.

Why I Love Oak Lawn: Oak Lawn has been my home for nearly two decades. It was here I grew up, met my best friends, and fell in love with comics and retail. The customers and fans in Oak Lawn make our second location one of the most vibrant environments I’ve ever had the honor to be a part of.

Why I Love Chimera’s Comics: When my friends and I came together to create Chimera’s Comics, we wanted to do more than make a store – we wanted to build a community. And we did – but it depends entirely on the fans, friends, customers, and family that make this business so welcoming and so much fun to be a part of.

Favorite Comic I’m Reading Now:  It’s a tie- Wolverine and the X-men & Superior Spider-man

Why I Love Oak Lawn:  Oak Lawn has been my home all of my life in one way or another.  It’s a pretty cool town with pretty cool people.  Why wouldn’t I love it?

Why I Love Chimera’s Comics:  Chimera’s Comics has ditched the dingy, unfriendly, cramped comic book store look and has come up with a place that is bright, up beat, and friendly.  I enjoy working here because I have loved this stuff since I was a little kid and what better way to keep up with the goings on of the comic book world than to work at a comic shop.  I get to meet new people, see old friends and read all the comics I could ever have dreamed of reading.  It’s just a fun place to be!
