Gods & Monsters

5421 International Drive


The abrupt closure of Artegon early this year was disastrous for many of the mall's artisan tenants, but collectibles superstore Gods & Monsters managed to not only survive, but thrive. Their new location at I-Drive's Orlando Crossings Mall is no longer among the nation's largest comic shops, but it is big enough to conceal Vault 5421, a Fallout-inspired post-apocalyptic watering hole where (with apologies to the Kinks) you drink craft beer and it tastes just like Nuka-Cola.
