Comic book-themed eatery ComicX coming to Desert Ridge

Grab your cape! ComicX, a Mexico-based comic book-themed eatery, will open its first U.S. location at Desert Ridge Marketplace in summer 2019.

Desert Ridge Marketplace announced today that Mexico-based ComicX will be opening its first U.S. location at the center in summer 2019. Filled with memorabilia and collectibles of favorite superhero and villain characters, ComicX is a family-friendly restaurant and store that offers the perfect blend of fantasy and reality. The comic book-themed restaurant will occupy an 8,000 square-foot pad space between Sweet Tomatoes and Majerle’s Sports Bar.  

“We are honored ComicX selected Desert Ridge Marketplace for its first domestic location,” said Jenny Cushing, Vice President of Leasing for Vestar. “The combination of great food and unique atmosphere provides yet another opportunity for people to gather and enjoy Desert Ridge Marketplace.”

In February 2017, Desert Ridge Marketplace set out to bring new, elevated entertainment experiences to the North Valley — part of its mission to grow with the surrounding community. Desert Ridge Marketplace continues to offer unique experiences and events throughout the year such as Snow Day (Jan. 19) and Movies in the Courtyard (Every other Thursday in the Barnes & Noble Courtyard).

“Desert Ridge Marketplace is the perfect location for our first U.S. concept,” said Santiago Cota, CoFounder of ComicX. “We are excited to share the action-packed experience with the Valley!” 

Other recent and upcoming additions to Desert Ridge Marketplace include destinations such as H&M, CB Live, Barrio Queen, Flower Child and The Whining Pig Beer & Wine Bar.
