What have you done / what are you doing?
We’ve been selling four-colour wonders to the fantastic populace of Newcastle for almost two decades now! Many people had their first taste of the world of comics in our shop. We’ve also had lots of celebrities through our doors over the years from comic innovators to movie stars. And we’ve made a lot of kids’ Christmases thanks to our great range of toys and games.
Our company was first founded on a love of comics and wholly believes in them as a vital and distinct form of creative media. Our parent company, Titan, publishes and distributes some of the biggest and best comics in the UK. Our shops throughout the country strive to offer everyone the best comics we can find for them to enjoy. Here in Newcastle we have hundreds of years (well, almost…) of experience between us and if you’re stuck for something or want to try something new, just ask one of our staff members. We are all big comic readers and we want you to be too!
