Meet Morgan

Owner of the first female-owned comic book shop in Western North Carolina!

Owner, ambassador, and geeky kindred spirit, Morgan exudes kindness to all and strives to emulate her ultimate role model, Mr. Rogers, in her daily approach to life and those she interacts with. Under her guidance, Morgan’s Comics is a true “nerd sanctuary” where all feel welcome and heard.


I have always loved this place and our people, but I never imagined that it would one day have my name on it!

Thank you to everyone who helps our “Nerd Sanctuary” flourish. I connect our customers with the geeky wants that help make their days more exciting and joyful. I encourage a youthful enthusiasm for life by “nerding it out” with like-minded folks of all ages.

Meet Jak

Hi! I’m Jak! I’m the newest member of the Nerd Sanctuary family! I moved to Asheville when I was 15 years old. I was at an age where I was shoved into a new environment, and so scared of being “the new kid”. My parents had told me about this cool store that they had come to when they visited Asheville. After hearing about it, I knew I had to go.

Since then, the Nerd Sanctuary has been an outlet for me to talk with Matt and Morgan about any and all nerdy subjects. Being a kid in a very sports heavy school, being a nerd was deemed childish or embarrassing. Morgan and Matt changed my opinion on that and helped me learn that it’s awesome to be myself! The environment that has been created at this store is an incredibly welcoming one, and one I’m so incredibly fortunate to be a part of.

Some of my interests are reading comics (duh), film making, cosplaying, skateboarding, and making music! If you’re a fellow DC/Marvel nerd like me, come on and stop in! I’d love to talk to you about all things Nightwing/Spider-Man related!!

Meet Matt

I had always been a low-key nerd for most of my life. Growing up I played with my Ninja Turtle and X-Men toys, and then later in life got into Harry Potter and Star Wars, but all of my nerdoms were always in the background. It wasn’t until fate allowed me (while doing my day job as a mail carrier) to start delivering to the “Nerd Sanctuary” that I found my community.

During that time, I looked forward to being able to check out the new goodies when I would stop by everyday. Morgan was always there with a kind smile and a water bottle for me.

A bit later I started going through some pretty hard times. This is when the “Nerd Sanctuary” really opened up its arms and invited me in. I met basically all of my friends here and quickly got involved in movie and board game nights.

Now, a few years later, Morgan’s Comics is basically my home.

I currently buy and price boardgames, shirts, hats, and action figures. I also run Board Game Night and am all ears for anyone with crazy toy collections or geeking out about Star Wars, Harry Potter, or Hellboy!
