NUVO’s own cartoonist Wayne Bertsch and buddy Mike Rittenhouse have teamed up to open the city’s newest store devoted to all things comic. Meant as a place for fans and budding creative types, Hero House buys, sells and trades comic books of all genres. They also carry a good deal of anime and manga. Even better, they’ve got a good selection of local and regional cartoonists books and ‘zines (including works by Bertsch and Rittenhouse). For the budding cartoonists, there is a line of art supplies available.
The new space on offer from the MOKB/DO317 team occupies the former IndySwank space. The space is 21+ and currently serves beer and wine, but is in pursuit of a liquor license that will allow hard liquor to be served.
