A Video Tour of Forbidden Planet NYC in 1986

Posted by Michael Pinto on Jul 13, 2010 in Comic Books, Fandom |

Forbidden Planet in New York City is still very much open, but sadly the shop today is less than 50% of the size that it was in the 80s. This stunning set of videos gives a tour of the place and serves as a vivid time capsule what a comic book shop on steroids looked like back in the day. My art school was just a few blocks away from this place and I spent so many lunch hours there back in the day, so this video brings back a ton of memories:
