Who is Collector's Paradise?

Collector’s Paradise came to be in September of 1994, when Edward Greenberg and Joseph Zelich bought an existing comic book store, at the time called Little Angel’s Comics. Little Angel’s business was in shambles, but pogs were keeping it afloat. Its prominent location, on a major intersection, across from two schools and a busy traffic street, was what attracted the new owners to the store. For the next few years, the two tried to refocus the business model of the store and focus more on comic books, the emerging graphic novel category, and customer service. A few years later, the store moved two doors down to a much bigger location and was able to finally become the type of store the owners have always had in mind.

The store changed again dramatically in 2009, when a full-time gallery was opened with an awesome Grand Opening Party, which featured famous comic book and culture artist Jim Mahfood producing a wall-size mural in front of huge crowd. Since then the Winnetka location has hosted Art Gallery Exhibits and sold a wide variety of Original Art and Limited Edition Prints from a wide range of Artists.

In April of 2010, Collector’s Paradise opened its second location in Old Town Pasadena, and the team has been working hard to recreate the signature Collector’s Paradise experience for a whole new comic book audience.

In August of 2019, right before the COVID pandemic started, Collector’s Paradise opened its third location in the historic NoHo art district.  With the studios around it and a large population moving to the area, we are very excited about the future of that location. 

In the last 10 years, the store’s goals have been re-evaluated again, to include moving forward into online presence and continuing to refine our online customer services, including a custom-created Online Subscription Management software application. It lets the stores’ customers track and organize their monthly comic book subscriptions online and have access to complete Previews catalog information for nearly every title.  The mail-order part of Collector’s Paradise business has grown tremendously since the software was implemented.

Collector’s Paradise is well known in the LA area for our events. We host creators and publishers from all over our industry, on almost weekly basis, at our three locations. Please follow us on Social Media (links above) to find out about our many events every month.
