See Inside Cosmic Gorilla, the New Comic Book Shop and Bar at Findlay Market

Cosmic Gorilla is a new comic book and board game shop at Findlay Market that not only offers the latest issues of your favorite superhero’s adventures, but also a full bar with signature cocktails — both fortified and non-alcoholic. This is the newest venture from Gorilla Cinema Presents, the company behind La Ofrenda, Tokyo Kitty, Tiki Tiki Bang Bang, Lonely Pine Steakhouse and Overlook Lodge.

The shop aims for a boutique experience with a regularly rotating inventory. The overall aesthetic is clean and well organized, a guaranteed delight for fans of Marvel, DC, indie publishers and tabletop gaming.

The overriding drive behind Cosmic Gorilla, according to its managing owner Greg Newman, is to create a family-friendly destination. Gorilla Cinema Presents’ owner, Jacob Trevino, elaborates: “We wanted to appeal to families and we want to appeal to something that we felt was missing in the market. We see so many people of all ages come down to enjoy one of the tourist attractions of Cincinnati, which is Findlay Market itself.”

Cosmic Gorilla is located at 1834 Race St., Over-the-Rhine. Get more info at gorillaverse.com.
