  • If you are living in the superhero or star wars world... You will love it, spend time and money for collectors items. Not interested? Still worth seeing this shop... you could feel being in Akihabara ...  more »
  • The first floor you cone to is a bit wasted in me, lots of very gimmicky geeky stuff with people crowding round just because they think they have to. Once I got downstairs it changed for me completely...  more »

  • The best comic book store in London. They even have comics going back to a few months ago. But that's not all, they also have all the nerd apparel you want. T-shirts? Posters? Figurines? They have it all!
  • My favourite shop in London!!! Slightly pricey but they have an awesome range of goods & the comics are second to none, bardains can be found but highly dependant on when you visit & how hard you look. The lucky dip comics grab bags are a great place to start!!!
  • Great selection of geek merch..perfect for any gamer, film nut or comic nerd! Huge selection of bits for any price range, little gifts to limited edition statues. They also have bits from all genres which are laid out in an easy to find way. The staff are always friendly and helpful. A great place to stock up on all things nerd!
  • A huge collection of comic books, manga, and collectable items from various sci-fi and fantasy fandoms. There's definitely something for everyone.
  • Great place to shop and see anytime. Always come here to get the latest issues and find any old volumes with the best prices. Figures and statues are a bit pricey, but at least they provide a lot of Japanese figures.
