Top Store's to Visit | Washington & Oregon

Growing up, I loved collection comics and visiting as many comic book shops as I could on family vacations. Today, I still enjoy traveling and visiting comic book shops when I get a chance. Most often I never tell anyone who I am and what I'm doing. But there is always fun about going to a store full of awesome stuff. 

However, personally I can spend along time at these store but sometimes I don't have that option! So in the last few weeks, I've been visiting different stores in Washington and Oregon. These are my personal review's for you to visit them as well and differently check them out. Who knows what you might find. Here's my top store's to visit.
