Okay, folks, it’s not a dream or an imaginary story… With the city of New Orleans going under a “Stay at Home” order, we’ll be temporarily closing both the Freret St. and Calhoun St. locations starting Saturday, March 21st.

What does this mean for the future? We plan to reopen whenever we’re allowed to, and if you currently have books on hold they’ll be there waiting for you. Over the weekend we’ll be working towards a streamlined online sales store, so keep an eye out for news on that front and perhaps mail order options, as soon as Monday.

As far as future new releases, we await word from Diamond about shipments. If we do receive shipments, we’ll perform pulls as normal and hold your books, as well as pull books for e-mailed lists like normal. With the Stay at Home order, it’s unclear if deliveries will be allowed to happen. If you’re reading this, you’ll be in position to see any future updates.

Some good news: none of us have exhibited symptoms or have had to self-quarantine, so right now we’re fortunate. Good luck to all of you! We hope to see you again in the shops as soon as possible.

Crescent City Comics’ flagship location is at 3135 Calhoun St.! Our vast selection of new comics, graphic novels, toys, models, prints, etc… is available at the Calhoun St. location. Our primary focus is providing a full-service comic shop for the great fans in New Orleans!

Our original post-Katrina location, at 4916 Freret St., is still open with a different product focus: games (board and card), apparel for all ages and comic-related toys and novelties, with a limited selection of comics and graphic novels.


Crescent City Comics is dedicated to spreading awareness of how versatile the comics medium can be! We carry not only a wide variety of superhero titles from Marvel and DC, but also a great number of non-superhero comics and graphic novels, including crime, auto-biographies, true stories and tie-ins to movies/TV/novels like Star Wars, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Serenity and more. Even if you've never read a comic, we guarantee we can find a book that interests you! You'll want to visit our Calhoun St. store for the full comics and graphic novel selection. In addition to comics, we carry Magic: the Gathering (Boosters, Event & Intro Decks, Fat Packs), Dungeons & Dragons (Guides, Expansions and Minis), Comics & Gaming Supplies (Bags & Boards, Card & Comic Boxes, Dice, Card Sleeves, counters, etc...), Toys & Novelties (POP! Vinyl, Marvel Select, DC Collectibles, keychains, stickers), Gundam Models, T-Shirts (DC Comics Tees from Graphitti Designs, plus Marvel, Doctor Who, Walking Dead) and much more! Visit Freret St. for the full gaming selection, though typically Magic and D&D hardcovers are carried at both locations.
