After 18 years of selling superheros and fantasy stories, a comic book shop is about to close its cover.

Comics Unlimited is closing on June 15.

Owner Matthew Hawes says the biggest reason is the internet.
He says when he opened the store in 1996, the internet wasn't anything like it is today.

Hawes plans to still sell comics online.
He will also continue selling his inventory at conventions and flea markets.

Comics Unlimited will remain open on Diamond Avenue until June 15.
