Where's the best comic books in NYC?

Dunno much about this but looking for cool comic book stores. Not really interested in Manga, more like 2000AD, Moebius, Heavy Metal and that kind of stuff. I'll be staying in Lower East so anywhere around there would be great.

Midtown comics is crowded, and it's hard to find what you're looking for.
(Although they'll probably have what you want.)
I prefer Jim Hanley's Universe on 33 between 5th & 6th.
The comics are all in alphabetical order and there's a magazine section.
They sell tees and toys and statues and the staff is cool.
Try Forbidden Planet, too.
Can I ask you something? These sunglasses: they're really nice. Are they like government issue, or do you guys all go to the same store together?

I'm sure the original poster has come and gone from new york but thought this might be of interest to a few others. Regarding comic artists.
