Comic Book-Themed Restaurant ComicX Picks Phoenix For First U.S. Location
Four friends with a passion for good food and comics opened the first ComicX in Hermosillo, Sonora, in 2010. Since then it’s grown to 36 locations in Mexico.
This summer, ComicX is expected to open at Desert Ridge Marketplace, north of the Loop 101 on Tatum Boulevard. The family-friendly restaurant has menus that resemble comic books and life-sized replicas of superhero and villain characters.
In a press release, Santiago Cota, cofounder of ComicX, expressed excitement about sharing the experience with the Valley.
Desert Ridge Marketplace completed a $22 million renovation a couple years ago and continues to bring in new dining, shopping and entertainment tenants.
