Excaliber Comics Opens in Bensonhurst Brooklyn

Comic enthusiast Dan Burges has opened Excalibur Comics at 7402 20th Avenue, specializing in graphic novels, collectibles, toys, and specialty hand-made items like the Super Mario Bros question mark block coin banks by Burges’s girlfriend, Emily Shea.

Burges said he opened up the shop after attending the New York Comic Con last year. The packed convention hall encouraged him to open up in the comic store-starved neighborhood, since even just a sliver of the con’s attendance would make for good business.

Could Excalibur be leading the way for a comic book resurgence in Southern Brooklyn, something that those wistful Sheepshead Bites readers would love to see?
