Enjoy these images of our popular mascots, Buff Nick & Q-Bot.
Buff Nick was created in 2007 by Darius Q. Johnson and Emil Novak, Sr. Basically, he’s meant to be an accessible, friendly but gruff spokesman for Queen City Bookstore, and comic book collecting in general. He’s easily excitable, quick with a barb or a compliment, and practically lives for New Release Wednesday.
Buff Nick even does Cosplay, too!
Q-Bot was created in 2010 by Darius Q. Johnson and Emil Novak, Sr. He was designed as a friendly sidekick to Buff Nick. Clumsy and lovable, Q-Bot is smart, polite, and speaks with a Cockney British accent.
Q-Bot has components from lots of popular superheroes. Can you name them all?
Here’s Q-Bot in one of his first appearance, from a locally produced free comic book in 2012.
Queen City Bookstore created Buff Nick & Q-Bot for comic book fans, young and old. Feel free to share these guys on social media. Just make sure you respect and adhere to our Image Usage Policy.
Thank you in advance.
