about chameleon

Chameleon Comics & Cards is a full service collectibles store specializing in comic books, graphic novels, trading cards (sports & non-sports), and much more. We cater to comic book collectors by providing a membership program which offers 10 - 20% off the cover price for of all new comics and other items.

The original comic book store, founded by Jimmy Wu, was named Comics Underground back in 1989, when the young entrepreneur was still in college. The storefront began as a modest stall in the basement of the local Busy Bee Mall, in Flushing, Queens, but it still attracted the attention of local collectors. Jimmy, partnering with his brother, Steve, decided to expand the business to include sportscards.

A street level storefront on Maiden Lane was established in 1992, and Chameleon Comics & Cards was an instant hit, attracting everyone from investment bankers to the delivery boys. Today, Chameleon is one of the most reputable hobby businesses in New York City.
