The Decision

Having been a comic book and all around nerd my entire life, the dream job was always a comic book store or something similar.

Well, this year I have decided to finally take that leap and start my very own online comic book shop!

I never went to business school and I’m certainly learning as I go along. The first few steps were daunting to say the least.

For one thing, choosing a company name was much harder than expected. Not only were many names already taken, but I couldn’t think of a way to express what I wanted my shop to be.

The Name

Logo For Columbus Underground Comics LLC

After hours of brainstorming, the name was decided – Columbus Underground Comics. The first part should be obvious where I got the name.

I am born and raised right here in Columbus, Ohio. The “Underground” part of the name is a tribute to the underground pop culture community, specifically small independent comic book creators. I want to showcase the unknown talent out there in my shops inventory.

So after the naming process was out of the way, came the paperwork. Not having any experience with opening a new business, this was not an easy process.

Just finding the initial forms to fill out was a pain in and of itself. State government websites are not the most user friendly.

Phase 1 Complete

After a few weeks of research, phone calls and faxes, all the paperwork was filed, and in April of 2022 I got my LLC certificate from the state.

Having just recently obtained the business and vendor’s license, there is only a few things left to do.

  • Purchase my initial inventory and get the website up and running.

My next article will go into the process of how I obtain my first bulk collection purchase for my store. I hope you’ll stick around with me on this journey, It’s gunna be a good time!

I will also be doing periodic updates on my TikTok account as this process unfolds, so be sure to check there as well for more updates!
