Owner/Operator/ Big Boss
The Godfather of Comics! The Man of the Hour! Carlos started his life in comics when he first opened comic book shop “Rise from the Ashes” in the early 90s in the east end of Toronto. Officially a father of one but the godfather or everyone (official/ not official) Carlos brings in the good merch! He’s basically our guy that ensures everyone gets a smile on their faces in-store because they’ve got the variants they want and the statue they’ve always dreamed of having. He’s also our go-to man for anything CGC related! Say hello to Carlos in the store (or in conventions) when you see him, he’s the guy covered in superhero tattoos rocking a “Straight Out of Gotham” shirt.
