Outsider Comics & Geek Boutique was started in November 2016 by Jill and Reagan Taplin in Seattle, Washington. They offer intro bundles of comics by genre as well as other product lines that complement comic and geek culture. Items include high-end geek fashion clothes inspired by comic book characters, jewelry, as well as cosplay accessories and supplies. Customers can come to shop or participate in book clubs, art showcase events, creator
readings/signings, RPG nights, and cosplay builds. Jill and Reagan were connected to Evergreen Business Capital through SBA LINC, which connects borrowers with SBA-approved lenders. The Community Advantage Loan they received for inventory and working capital purchases helped them open their doors to a world of geeky fun and fashion.
