About Fantom Comics



Fantom Comics was founded in 2005 by local comic book geeks, Matt Klokel and David Bishop. Over the years, we have served the District’s comic book communities from various locations, including Tenleytown, Union Station, Crystal City and finally, our Dupont Circle location.

Been reading DC and Marvel since the Silver Age? Want to try reading a comic book for the first time? Looking for a gift for a comics enthusiast in your life?

We’re happy to find the right book for you! We welcome fans and geeks of all kinds, and we are always striving to make this a store where comic books truly are for everybody.
