Have you wondered what it is like to be as close to paradise as humanly possible? If you haven’t been in our stores lately, girl, now is the time to come back. Whether you are a collector, birthday shopping or most importantly upcoming holiday shopping, we have you covered. Let us tell you about what you’ll find in our Geeking Out corner at Bookmans Mesa.

Geeking Out Corner of Bookmans Mesa

Comics. If you are a comic collector, we have a large selection of DC, Marvel and Independent. Our stock ranges from newer titles to vintage collectibles. Need an original copy of the Walking Dead, #1? We have that! Looking for Golden Age? Looking for Silver Age? You will find treasures from these eras as well. Not a collector but want to read comics without breaking the bank? We still have a abundance of our famous “fifty cents” comics as well. (These comics are also useful in other projects such as scrap booking and gift wrapping. We dive into Etsy and Pinterest just like you do.)

Toys. Superheroes! Star Wars! Imaginext! Legos! Currently, Bookmans Mesa has a large assortment of Star Wars figures and play sets. Everything your favorite Wookie, Jedi, Princess or Ewok would love. Beyond Star Wars, we have Barbies of all kinds. Holiday Barbies, Career Barbies, Barbie and her Rockers, Sugar Plum Barbies, etc. This golden-haired plastic princess is not only multi-careered, she is also perfect for every occasion and sure to delight. (We wouldn’t hate on the person who put a Barbie as “Cher” under our tree this year — hint, hint.) Transformers (a.k.a. “robots in disguise”), and Marvel and/or DC Comic toys also adorn our Geeking Out corner. If you are missing that one figure from a set, we also have a large collection of loose figures too. Who knew Batman came in so many different colors and costumes? You did. We’ve also seen a few variations on Wonder Woman too, but we’re reserving that for an opinion piece to be published later. #Spoiler.

Vintage toys is one of our specialties! We currently have original carded Star Wars figures, a pristine original boxed 1977 Millennium Falcon, Blue Snaggletooth, Ghostbusters toys, GI Joes, Playskool/Fisher Price play sets and McDonald’s Happy Meal Toys. It’s like that Montgomery Wards or Sears Christmas wish catalog you loved as a kid all over again has come to life.

Art. Needing art to complete your collection? We have that too! You will find an ever-revolving assortment of posters and pop culture-related art to brighten even the most drab fortress of solitude. The featured subjects range from video games, to comics, concerts and music to television and movies. The posters come packaged flat with plastic and a cardboard backing. If you plan on taking it home and having it framed, we would be happy to suggest a matte color for you as they are that awesome. You’re welcome. 🙂


Our Geeking Out corner is only one small portion of our store. We have a little bit of something for everyone and you truly never know what you will find. Did you know we sell Musical instruments?

We still have all the things you love about us — an incredible assortment of video games, both current and vintage consoles (Pong is old school Grand Theft Auto), the most amazing Electronic gadgets, computer parts, books, graphic novels, movies, music, board games, puzzles, a whole aisle of CRAFTS, rubber stamps and beautiful jewelry. Plus we have a ginormous collection for children and teens. For those with a Bookmans attitude, we also carry our exclusive B.O.B. line of apparel, totes and beverage containers.

If you haven’t been in Bookmans Mesa in a while, and/or have the elusive 1976 Marie Osmond 30 Inch Modeling doll…
