Thor just came out with his sequel, S.H.I.E.L.D.'s on TV, and Marvel and Netflix just signed prenuptials.

Everywhere you turn, heroes are coming off the screen, but people forget: they belong on paper.

With the Miami Book Fair coming to town, it's time to get back to your superhero roots, and you don't have to don a cape. Just head to the 3 best comic bookstores in South Florida.
