Kurt Bollers' West Village Comics store features a “quarter of a quarter” of one storage unit, with most of the items still in storage, but they're books that are officially rated based on their condition and therefore, more valuable.

A boy peruses the colorful covers inside the shop.

A selection of "Deadpool" comics lay on top of boxes of books.

Store owner Kurt Bollers with a crossover "Treasury Edition" of "Superman vs. Batman" comic, which was an early collaboration between DC and Marvel comics. These editions are not made anymore.
