Meet the Store Owners

Robert and Christine Prohl

On December 3rd, 2016, Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy ® North Houston opened its doors. On that day Robert, with the help of his loving wife Christine, fulfilled a long-held dream of his, of being more involved in the comic book and game community that he loves, and owning his own store. Since that day it has welcomed thousands of customers and friends (and a few cats) within its walls.

In 2022, thanks to the support of their community, Robert and Christine were able to move the store into a new 10,000 square foot location. August of that year saw the official opening of the Tabletop Tavern inside their store, serving coffee, beer, wine and good food!
