Here's a couple sneak peeks.....
Doyle of The Misfits
Those who know the origin of our name won't be surprised to see Doyle's signature on the Ceiling of Fame. He did an in-store for us and took the climb to let The Fiends know he was here.
Skottie surprised us earlier this year while he was in town and came by the shop and left this for all of you.
Brian K. Vaughn
BKV was in town for the holidays and came in for a visit. After being outed by his mother in-law, he left his mark with Ampersand.
We had Jeffrey Brown in the store for a signing and afterwards he drew this one while telling us about a new series of books he had coming out taking place in a Galaxy Far, Far Away.....
Cullen stopped by when he was in town and added this great piece to the ceiling. The surprise visits are always the best!
World famous Pro Skateboarder "Cab" is a long time friend of the shop and the owner. He was in town to play a show with his band The Faction and stopped by to hang out.
J.H. came into the store in 2017 and took the climb to the ceiling of fame and left this for everyone to enjoy.
While in town working on a film, Joss came into the shop one Saturday morning and drew a self-portrait to go along with his signature.

Welcome to the new website
Staying current is something we at Astro-Zombies strive for. With that being said, we felt it was time for our website to get a face-lift. Everything in the store can still be ordered by calling or emailing us but it was time to say goodbye to our webstore.
Say hello to Astro-Zombies 2.0!!
Best comic book store in Albuquerque imo. Decent prices, amazing selections, friendly nerd knowledgeable staff, and an amazing toy selection. Just a super fun store to waste some time in or the mecca for the enthusiast. Assemble your team here. You won't regret it! :)
Everyone is very knowledgeable, very kind and helpful, and loves their job. Huge selection of everything and such a great vibe there. HIGHLY recommend!
