Located under the parking deck overlooking the Portage Canal in Houghton, MI, Black Ice Comics opened in 2016.  We may be a 'fun-sized' comic shop, but we are mighty!  As the U.P.'s premier comic shop, we cater to the ever growing community of people who love all things geek!


Shana Porteen

aka "The CAPTAIN"


As the owner of the shop, Shana lives for getting a great book into your hands!  She's happy to talk your ear off about ANYTHING geek!  When she gets tired of people, she hides in the back room...




Rachel is simply the best!  She will help you find even the most obscure story line or book!  If she can't, she'll just shrug her shoulders...


aka "The DAD"

This man has your back on Mondays!  He enjoys helping customers and can build anything (look at the awesome fixtures in the shop!)!  Caution: he knows nothing about cosplay...


aka "Number One"


Well, this guy is lovingly committed to the Captain but has his own gig impersonating a Criminal Justice professor!  He helps out in the shop from time to time, but we don't let him be in charge of much...
