San Francisco Giants' Hunter Pence To Open Comic Store In Houston With Comic Book Men's Ming Chen


Hunter Pence is a Major League Baseball right fielder for the San Francisco Giants, previously playing for the Houston Astros and Philadelphia Phillies and a member of the 2012 World Series and 2014 World Series championship teams.

He's also opening a comic shop.

Along with his wife and YouTube star Alexis Pence, September will see the opening of Coral Sword: Coffee, Comics & Games in Houston, a combined comic shop, gaming store and coffee house (and beer, wine and doughnuts). He will be joined in the business venture by Comic Book Men's Ming Chen and coffee experts David Buehrer and Sanford Bledsoe III.

Coral Sword will be at 1318 Telephone, two miles from the University of Houston and will feature a gaming bar with newly released games, where pros and developers can train gamers on recent releases. It will also host a podcast studio booth and a "co-gaming" space that can be reserved for workshops and tournaments.



Anyone fancy going along for opening day?
