What do you get when you merge a normal comic store with art and design influences? Something along the lines of Floating World Comics. This Old Town institution offers up a full array of comics and graphic novels — just ask the owner Jason if you need a recommendation — but also carries a solid selection of art books and magazines, graphic design and illustration publications, artwork by local artists, and items related to animation, music, and movies. Basically, as the store itself claims, "anything that might serve as inspiration for creative folks looking for something new." Sounds good to us.
