2016 Calling All Dreamers winner announced

Oblivion Comics & Coffee to win $110,000 start-up incentive package


We are thrilled to announce Laura Benson and Neil Estaris, co-owners of Oblivion Comics & Coffee, are the winners of the 2016 Calling All Dreamers competition.

Oblivion Comics & Coffee is a comic book store and coffee shop that will feature new, vintage, and independent comics, paired with craft coffee from Chocolate Fish and artisanal toast.

Inspired by the DC Comic universe’s Oblivion Bar, a neutral space where superheroes and villains coincide peacefully, Oblivion Comics & Coffee will be a real, modern day safe-haven for comic lovers and coffee connoisseurs, alike.

Now in it’s fourth year, the Calling All Dreamers competition has:

  • Helped launch 11 new businesses in downtown Sacramento
  • Leased more than 13,500 sq. ft. of retail space
  • Created 13 full-time and 53-part-time jobs

We look forward to celebrating Oblivion Comics & Coffee’s grand opening and will update you on the store’s progress.
