We're ecstatic to have artist/writer/far too talented gent Declan Shalvey back in the store with us. Declan's going to be signing from 1 till 2 pm on Saturday the 27th January. Since we last played host to Mr Shalvey he has unleashed his frankly phenomenal OGN Savage Town on the world. Along with co-creator and artist Philip Barrett, the duo produced one of the most original, surprising and fun comics of last year. Do you like the films of Martin McDonagh (In Bruges in particular), miss Brubaker and Phillips Criminal, or simply can't wait for the next Stray Bullets issue? You HAVE to grab a copy of this to get Declan to scribble in, you'll love it.Read More
Okay, things have settled down a bit now and it's time to get back into the groove of normal, non-holiday life. Standard opening hours, standard delivery schedule, standard sardine-like commuting - all that great stuff. And what better way to start than by announcing our first signing event of the year? We're very excited to announce that Irish comics superstar Declan Shalvey will be here on Saturday 27th January, 1-2pm! Already an established artist on top titles like Injection, Declan is also proving to be an accomplished writer on projects such as Deadpool vs Old Man Logan and the excellent OGN Savage Town. Check here for more details and pop it in your calendars!Read More
Time to take a look back at our top 100 selling books of 2017!
These are ranked by the number of units sold, and it should be noted are distinct from our best of lists (adult and kids - follow the links!) No value judgement attached - these are pure numbers for those who enjoy such things. Have at it!Read More
The January Sale is upon us! Yes, from the 2nd - 31st January we'll be running our usual price-busting extravaganza, with 1000's of reduced graphic novels and childrens books going on sale throughout the month on our sale table, as well as a whopping 50% off all of our back issues. Stupid bargains to be had, people!Read More
Welcome back! Christmas is over and a New Year awaits. Of course the real question is: what comics are you going to be reading as the clock chimes midnight? Well, we might just be able to help you out there, but first a little housekeeping.
As mentioned last week, deliveries this week and next are pushed back to Thursday, and will be arriving on the day to go out. That means it's unlikely anything will be on the shelves at opening. We'd hope to have it all out by lunchtime, but keep an eye on our social media feeds where we'll announce it as soon as they're available.
Also, we'll be operating reduced hours on Sunday the 31st, from 10.30am - 3pm, and will be closed on Monday the 1st for some much-needed R&R.Read More
This is it, folks! When next we meet we'll all be in that strange netherworld of the interval between Christmas and New Year. Some of you will be at home, some away, and some - like us - enjoying the feeling of travelling into work on a tube system that's about 60% less overburdened. But of course it's not all plain sailing, with changes in opening hours and delayed deliveries. So let's talk Christmas turkey:Read More
'Tis the season of extended hours and delayed comics! Click below for all the festive details!
This Wednesday we've got the final edition of Reads, our monthly graphic novel reading group. This time around the group will be looking at some classic Carl Barks in Donald Duck: The Golden Helmet. All are welcome, so come on down for a 7pm start! We've got plenty of copies of the book if you want to pick a copy up beforehand (probably advisable!) Not only that, but they'll also be doing their annual Christmas Quiz! More details here!Read More
