About UsA Brief History
Atomic Empire was founded by a pair of gigantic geeks (Mark & JJ) who are into science fiction, fantasy, gaming, and comics. Our site went live in June of 2003 as ScifiGenre.com, dedicated to providing a one-stop shop for geeks and those who shop for them.
In July of 2006 we opened our first brick-and-mortar store, Sci-Fi Genre Comics & Games, in Durham, NC. We were thrilled to have the chance to serve the geek community in person and make so many new friends!
We quickly outgrew our first home. In September of 2012, we moved a few blocks to a 12,000 square foot space and changed our name to Atomic Empire.
