Opening your own business can seem like a far fetched idea but at the age of 23 Steve Anderson, a self proclaimed “lifer” in the business decided to do just that. Steve was previously working at Alliance comics in Bowie, Maryland. After deciding to take the plunge, he worked incredibly hard to achieve his dream. From working 60 plus hour weeks, selling his personal comic collection, he did it all. In April 2008, Third Eye Comics opened their doors. Anderson's wife, Trish is co-owner of the store. In August of 2009, the store moved to their current location of 45 Old Solomon's Island Road, Suite 102, Annapolis, MD 21401. The store can be somewhat difficult to find. It’s behind Kohl’s and Shoppers Food Warehouse on Route 2.
As I was checking out, Trish explained how the store has a family atmosphere. Steve described it as being like a bar. If that's the case, then Third Eye Comics is the "Cheer's" of local comic shops.
