Our Favourite UK Comic Shops

Here are 5 of the best comic shops we have visited in the UK. Please check out the videos showcasing each of these great places.

What makes a great comic shop for us is having a very good back issue selection.

In no particular order:

1. Mega City Comics – Based in Camden, London, Mega City Comics has a huge selection of comics, graphic novels, and merchandise, as well as regular signings and events. We believe it is the best comic shop in London for back issues. If you ask nicely, they may let you look at the more expensive books in the back!

2. Out of This World Comics – A comic book shop located in Worcester, UK. They offer a great variety of comic books, graphic novels, manga, and other related merchandise. This is a great comic shop if you are ever around this neck of the woods, plenty of back issues are available.

4. Second City Comics – Comic book shop based in the Redbrick Market in Digbeth, Birmingham dealing in back issues from Marvel, DC and independent US publishers. Also stocking action figures, trading cards and a selection of related merchandise. They frequently buy collections, so if you have some comics to sell they will always take a look at what you have.

5. Cannonball Records – Located in Stoke-On-Trent. Don’t let the name fool you. Yes, it sells Records, Toys and Books but most importantly it sells Comic Books! Dave the owner acquires comic books when he purchases people Record collections and there are some amazing comics on offer. It really is a Stoke’s hidden gem!
