Gods & Monsters
Gods & Monsters is a sort of hobby/ gamer/ comic book collector Mecca. As you enter the hallowed doors, two life-size storm troopers rest above some shelving to greet you. There were comics, graphic novels and D & D dice as far as the eye could see. Down the center were toys, games, books, figures, and other memorabilia related to various games, movies, and TV shows – Star Wars, Spiderman, Star Trek, Ghostbusters, Rick and Morty, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons. Along the back wall of the shop was a section of framed prints by a few local artists. Through an eerie entry in the back was a Mad Max themed bar called Vault 5421. It was an amalgamation of fictional dystopian worlds with relics from games and movies like Silent Hill and Predator vs. Alien and was of course outfitted with tabletop video games at the booths. Gods & Monsters isn’t exclusively for gamers and hobbyists, anyone looking to feel a pang of nostalgia need look no further. The shop hosts different events like Dungeons & Dragons & Drinking and monthly role play game workshops. Check out their website for more information!
