Montasy Comics Changes Name Because Of Midtown Comics

The other week, Bleeding Cool reported that New York store Montasy Comics was to open a new outlet in Manhattan Midtown, going up against Jim Hanley's and Midtown Comics.

The location has now been confirmed on the second floor of 431 Fifth Ave on 38th Street.

It is up the street from Jim Hanleys and about halfway between the two Midtown Comics shops, just about in the geographic centre of the three, close to the New York Public Library and Bryant Park.

The name of the store was to have been Montasy Midtown, but the store's Twitter account tweeted;

Montasy Comics midtown location will now be known as Montasy Comics Chapter 2..Midtown Comics objected to the "Midtown".

The new store is scheduled to open on the twelfth of this month, with Wednesday opening hours of 10am until 10pm everyday save Sunday when it's from 11am till 8pm. However, they had a trial opening yesterday for Free Comic Book Day, which seems to have gone well.
