At Double Midnight, we love comics and gaming. Owned and operated by Brett Parker and brothers Chris and Scott Proulx, we opened our doors in July of 2002 in an effort to provide a fun and exciting place to shop and game. Since then, we’ve expanded the store to twice the size, created not one BUT TWO comic conventions (Granite State Comic Con and MASSive Comic Con) and keep looking towards the future to bring new events and items to the shop!

In 2013, we opened our SECOND location in Concord, with our new partner, Brian Cloutier!

We’re committed to making our store the best it can be and we always welcome your suggestions on how to make it better. Feel free to stop in a pick up game in our arena or just chat comics.

Additionally, we’ve had several signings, special guests and surprise customers stop by the store, including:

  • Seth Meyers (Late Night host, Saturday Night Live)
  • Miltos Yerolemou (Game of Thrones)
  • Rob Van Dam (wrestler)
  • Gail Simone (writer; Batgirl)
  • Marjorie Liu (writer; Astonishing X-Men)
  • Sean Murphy (artist; Joe the Barbarian)
  • Chavo Guerrero (wrestler)
  • Babs Tarr (artist; Batgirl)
  • Jerry “The King” Lawler (wrestler)
  • Aaron Kuder (artist; Action Comics)
  • Becky Cloonan (artist; Demo)

  • Shelli Paroline/Braden Lamb (artists; Adventure Time)
  • And many, many more!

 

Chris Proulx

Chris loves comics! Not as much as his wife and kids but they are a close second! Chris was bitten by the comic bug in the mid 80’s via Marvel’s G.I. Joe series. In high school Brett introduced him to the X-Men and with the birth of the Image universe he became a full blown addict! In 2002 he realized a lifelong dream of opening a comic shop with his best friend and brother.

 

 

Scott Proulx

Scott

Co-Owner Scott, Chris’ younger, much handsomer, brother, is a teacher by day, comic and board game nerd by night. His favorite board game is Ticket to Ride. Scott has been a Superman buff since the Death of Superman in 1992. His love of comics started with G.I. Joe and Transformers and he took the plunge into The Amazing Spider-Man in the late 80s. Scott can be seen at the store on Wednesday nights and on weekends.

 

Brett Parker

Wolverine and the X-Men were Brett’s gateway into the comic world when he was in third grade. Today, although they remain on the top of his reading list, he has definitely branched out. From the dark and dreadful Walking Dead to the classic heroes Captain America and Batman to the more obscure Fear Agent, he tries to cover all comic bases. Other all-time favorites include Preacher, Kingdom Come, and 100 Bullets. Brett also loves movies (both watching and making) and going on adventures with his family.

He loves roller coasters, the Flash, Harry Potter, and Collectible Card games. See him in Manchester on Tuesday, or up at our Concord Store Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Sunday, where he’ll be happy to look at cards you’d like to trade in, but please make sure he stays hydrated, he is a nice young boy after all.
 

 

Tony Houst

Tony’s been playing Magic and Pokemon since the late 90’s, and is one of our card game experts. He loves quirky and interesting comics, underrated superheroes like Hawkman and Moon Knight, and pretty much every new board game. You can catch him Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, where you can ask our resident judge any rules questions, workshop a new deck you’re building, or geek out about the art and story of pretty much anything.
