Established in 1987, Casablanca Comics has retail locations in Portland and Windham, Maine. Owned by Rick Lowell and Laura O’Meara, Casablanca Comics has been nationally recognized for excellence in retailing. We first opened our doors in a former barber shop with about 150 square feet of space and the barber’s sink still there as you walked in the door. We celebrated our 25th anniversary by serving homemade pies to our customers on March 14, 2012 ( 3.14 is π day, and yes, we are geeks).
Visit at us at either location to get great recommendations from Rick, Laura, Matt, Dave and Melanie. Our focus is to bring great reading and fun to all ages and interests. Check out our events page for exciting upcoming events. Past events have included numerous creator appearances, launches of amazing back issue collections, and celebrations of everything from strawberry shortcake for the Fourth of July to Zombies and Zucchini Bread for Walking Dead #100 (we like to bake for our customers).
Casablanca Comics has been proud to bring the Maine Comics Arts Festival to Portland for the past nine years. We are already planning a great festival for this year at the Portland Public Library on Saturday, June 17.
