New Comic Store Opens in San Diego’s Gaslamp District: Now Or Never

A new comic store has opened in San Diego’s Gaslamp District, within walking distance of San Diego Convention Center. Indeed, Now Or Never is the closest store to San Diego Comic Con’s regular spot after the chain store Comics N Stuff closed their outlet in Horton Plaza.

And it looks to be in rather stylish, keeping with the rest of the area. Here’s a look at the store as it opened a few weeks ago, owned and run by one Aaron Trites of Boston who made the move west last year.

You can find Now Or Never at 1055 F St. or online right here.

Bleeding Cool tries to mark the passing of comic stores as well as new arrivals on the scene. We’re more likely to hear about the former rather than the latter due to concerned fans but do please feel free to let us know the changes in your own local marketplace. E-mail me at
