Our history and mission
Double Midnight Comics was founded in 2002 to meet Manchester’s demand for a quality comics and games store. Brothers Chris and Scott Proulx partnered with longtime friend Brett Parker to establish Double Midnight Comics. Now in their 10th year, Double Midnight recently expanded to almost double its original size! We believe there is a comic and game for everyone out there and we will connect you with yours. Double Midnight constantly gives back to the community by participating in the annual City Holiday Parade, hosting panels in store and at local libraries, participating in game nights for inner city youth and more.
Having doubled in size, Double Midnight Comics can host over 75 gamers, depending on the event. Double Midnight Comics hosts events for Magic, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Heroclix, Naruto, D&D, and more! With over 100 games available to test drive, be sure to check out our demo library. Come learn to play something new at our board game night every Monday. Or bring a game that you think everyone should be playing.
Something for Everyone
Double Midnight Comics also organizes New England’s largest one day comic and game convention, the Granite State Comicon (GraniteCon for short). GraniteCon celebrates all things pop culture, comics, movies, games and more! The Double Midnight Comics gaming area (dubbed The Arena) is host to the kickoff of the NH 48 hour film festival, weekly board game nights, weekly Sketch Club meetings, monthly Woman’s Comics Discussion, as well as a bevy of game tournaments. Double Midnight Comics recently evolved our Gamers Club card into a VIP card good throughout the store! VIP members earn 1 point for every $1 spent in the store and 100 points can be redeemed for $10 in store credit. Members have the opportunity to earn double and triple points on various specials throughout the store. We’ve had several people stop to check out the Fantasy Flight Media Center to see what’s new or to learn how to play a game. People go out of their way to tell us they saw games on the FFMC because of how cool and innovative it is.
Thanks, Scott! Be sure to stop by Double Midnight Comics if you are in the Manchester area, and make sure to watch for our next Retailer Spotlight article.
