Comic Relief, a family-owned comic book shop, celebrated its 35th anniversary on May 1.

The store, which opened in 1989, is owned by San Martians Brian and Diane Stuart with their son Kyle.

Comic Relief carries a wide range of inventory, from collectible vintage comics to action figures, statues and gaming cards.

The comic store also sells a wide range of rookie basketball, baseball and football sports cards, which makes them a little more unique compared to other hobby shops.

“A lot of hobby shops don't mess with sports stuff these days,” Stuart said.
