Alternate Reality Comics

The nexus of enlightenment and entertainment!

Alternate Reality Comics is one of Las Vegas oldest comic book stores, established by Ralph Mathieu in 1995.

  • Alternate Reality Comics started in 1995 when Ralph Mathieu bought Dungeon Comics (established in 1987). A comics reader since 1975, Ralph always wanted to do something within the comic book industry, so when the opportunity to own a comic store came up, he didn't have to think twice about it. For Ralph, Alternate Reality Comics has been a delight from the first day, because he gets to share his love of comics with people just about every day and turn them onto the myriad of wonderful, new fantastic comics, manga, and graphic novels that this medium has to offer. He met his wonderful wife, Katherine (Kate), at the store, and she shares his passion for the medium.
