After decades of building a loyal underground fan base, comics have transitioned into the mainstream thanks to the rise of graphic novels with a surprising literary bent and a slew of television and film adaptations. But the heart and soul of the industry remains with the faithful audience of readers. And now a local haven nears a milestone seeking to support the greater community: Clifton Comics & Games, one of the city’s premier comic shops, will celebrate its fifth anniversary on Tuesday with discounts of up to 50 percent off most titles from noon-5 p.m. and then, beginning at 6 p.m., the store will host a special charity auction of collectibles, closeouts and full-run collections with proceeds supporting the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, the Hamilton County SPCA and Save the Animals. Buy a comic and be a hero for the day!
