SARATOGA SPRINGS — Cosmic Capes Comics, a comic book store located in The Springs apartment complex on Weibel Ave, will be closing soon, owner Mike Miller announced to customers in an email last week.

“For nearly three years, I have had the pleasure of opening and running Cosmic Capes Comics, and meeting so many great people,” Miller wrote. “While this experience has exceeded my expectations — you taught me much about comics, running a retail store, and how to remember names — I will soon be moving back to the midwest and closing the store in its current location. My wife and I have enjoyed our 14 years here in upstate New York, but the pull of family is too strong.”

Miller said he would consider opportunities to re-open the store once he’d completed his move. He also announced that Cosmic Capes would be holding a “20% off everything” moving sale beginning May 8.

“Thank you all for a wonderful run here in Saratoga Springs. You’ve allowed me to pursue my dream of owning and running a comic book store,” Miller wrote.
