Desert Ridge Marketplace is about to welcome some new, very super friends to their mix of shops and restaurants.
The Mexico-based ComicX will open its first U.S. location at the popular north Phoenix shopping center in the summer of 2019.
The new restaurant and shop will occupy the space between Sweet Tomatoes and Majerle's Sports Bar, according to a release.
ComicX will feature memorabilia and collectibles of your favorite comic book characters and offer the "perfect blend of fantasy and reality," a release said.
“We are honored ComicX selected Desert Ridge Marketplace for its first domestic location,” Jenny Cushing, Vice President of Leasing for Vestar, the company that owns the shopping center, said in a release. “The combination of great food and unique atmosphere provides yet another opportunity for people to gather and enjoy Desert Ridge Marketplace.”
The company said it's "excited to share the action-packed experience with the Valley."
“Desert Ridge Marketplace is the perfect location for our first U.S. concept,” Santiago Cota, co-founder of ComicX said in a release.
