Nerd Out Comics brings art, action figures and graphic novels to St. Petersburg

Nerd Out Comics brings art, action figures and graphic novels to St. Petersburg

Nerd Out Comics has officially arrived in St. Petersburg at 3705 5th Avenue North, right next door to the ever popular Bright Ice.

Comic lovers in the Tampa Bay region are most definitely familiar with their original location in the city of Tampa, which celebrated its 6th anniversary on December 11, 2020. Now the love is spreading to St. Pete. Not only is Nerd Out a space to purchase comics, toys, art, merch and more, but it’s also a hub to sell your old comics (just in case you’re looking to make space on your shelves).


The shop is owned by comic book lovers Glen Papp, Tanya Creel, and Deanna Benton.
