Bat City Comic Professionals is an educational non-profit organization building the next generation of superheroes. We help students improve their reading and writing skills through comics education.
Bat City funds its non-profit goals by operating a brick-and-mortar comic book store in Bradenton, FL.

We restore books!
Dirt on the cover, creases in the pages? Bring your books in for a professional evaluation to determine your cleaning and pressing needs.
Our in-house cleaner, Matt, will work to press and clean your book to help improve book quality and potential grading score.
Have more questions about how the process works or what cleaning your books may need? Stop by the shop to see Matt or give him a call at (941) 714-0402 to talk about your book's specific situation.
We are an authorized CGC and CBCS dealer. If you would like to have your books officially graded and slabbed, bring them by and we can get them graded for you!
Books for CGC will be hand-delivered and picked up from the facility in Sarasota for grading. CBCS books will be mailed to Dallas.
Rather for grading or return shipping, we'll pack up your books to ensure that everything gets there as safe as possible.
Dealer prices and grading dates vary based on book age and value.
Interested in a CGC or CBCS signature event, let us know and we can get your books to the appropriate service in time for the event! Come by the shop to get your shipment set up or reach out to Matt via phone at (941)714-0402 for more details.
