Orlando-based Coliseum of Comics, the largest comics and collectibles retailer in the Southeast, announced today that, effective immediately, it has purchased and will be assuming operations of the former Superhero Hive and Superhero Beach comics and games shops in Jacksonville and Jacksonville Beach, respectively. The move will bring the number of stores in the Coliseum chain to nine.

According to Phil Boyle, President of the Coliseum chain, the new ownership will mean extended store hours and an expanded selection of merchandise and back issues in the revamped and renamed locations.

“We have no plans to replace any of the current staff, and we may be adding a few more friendly faces to the crew,” said Boyle. “Right now, both stores are closed on Mondays, but we plan to go to seven days a week on December 4th.”

Plans are also underway for a “Out With The Old, In With The New” clearance sale to make way for the stores’ new stock, as well as Grand Re-Openings for both locations.
